Just wanted to thank everyone who has visited the site and stuck around to see what happens next. Between a wedding, memorial, a convention, work, and life in general its been a pretty busy year for me.
Sometimes its hard to get that second comic strip of the week and I’ve been late about 7 times this year on staying on schedule.
Small update in the characters section with Gary and the Joy Wiki.
This Thursday is the 100th joy comic.I was hoping to have something special ready for this, but that Joy toon is still pretty far behind from completion.Its on its way, hopefully in december!
Out of state and quite tired(family wedding, spent a lot of time helping get things ready) So I’ll have Sundays update posted on Tuesday. I have a busy week or work ahead of me, but I should be able to get things back on track by Tuesday.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but I had to put the comic aside for a few days so I could go to the wedding and help out.
Was hoping to have this up by early October, but this might end up being finished in Late October instead .I’m not sure about the length of this toon just yet. It looks like it could be about a 3 minute or so toon, instead of the usual 1 min or so toons. My production time is going to be split up more so for the next month or so. Things are picking up at my job, and work comes first so this will end up slowing down my animatin’ time. I’ll have a better idea on how things will be going in about a week and a half.
Still from the next animated Joy toon. Unlike the previous two which where adaptations of the strip, this is an original episode I’ve worked out to mostly just get the rest of the characters in one episode. I had considered maybe over the course of 3 episodes getting the rest of the kids at school introduced and what not…but this is easier in the long run and at least introduces them in animated form.
I’m pushing to have this episode up by about the middle of September…but we’ll see how thigns go.
Here you all go, its a few weeks late but thats as soon as I could finish this.
Real life has kept me busy and split my focus on my projects.
Gary makes an appearance in the next Joy Toon, adaption of comic no.5
Its about a week away from being completed, It looks like it’ll be about a 52 or so second toon, so its not quite a minute but its getting there. The next Toon I do will be an original story and I’ll try to shoot for about a minute in length.
For anyone who is curious, here is what Gary looks like.
Updated the characters page with the Singh twins! Been a while since I had some new characters, much less a new post on the site. Lifes keeping me pretty busy with work and I had a death in the family recently, which is never fun to deal with.
So I’m behind on the latest Joy toon as well as other projects since I my focus hasn’t exactly been very sharp. Hoping to have the next Joy toon up before the months end.
Will update the Joy Wiki later on this week!
In case anyone is wondering where this story arc is going, please be patient. I know its starting off kind of rough, but with whats happened in Texas recently I thought it was time to do this story arc. I’ve had it saved up and wasnt gonna use it for maybe until mid summer, if this seems on the fly…it kind of is, but it was always planned.
As silly and somewhat happy go lucky as this series is, I’ve always intended to have some more serious story arcs in it, because its still kind of ‘slice of life’. And Homosexuality is part of life, whether some people believe that or not, there are so many gay men and women who have shaped history for the rest of us I think its a crime that the nonsense thats happened in Texas as well in lots of parts of the world in general continues.
I’m not really a happy guy, I got a lot of problems and troubles in my life that get me down, but I like seeing other people happy. Its partially why I keep creating toons, or comics, because I know my work makes people happy.
Not too get too preachy, but I’d like to take a moment and just enjoy being honest that as a man who has a lot of inner demons, as well as dealing with the curse of Body Dysmorphic disorder, when I see a happy couple out there, I’m envious.
While being honest let me say I’ve never seen happier couples(outside of my folks) as these three:
They make me smile and give me hope I might overcome my own issues enough to find someone, but for now I’ll settle with my web comic.
Feel sick(AGAIN) after my trip to a con and I cant focus on finishing the strip, so It’ll be uploaded tomorrow, sometime.Could be traces of the same food poising I had a few weeks back, I dunno.
Sorry for the delay!
