GR

Flying Ferret #29, page 20 And finally, we get to meet the big brother, GR… the Grim Reaper.  I know there are many, many versions of death.  Although I’m spoofing Gaiman’s “Family” from the Sandman comics, my version of Death came from THE first one-page comic I drew featuring the first appearance of Flying Ferret! Of course, even there, he’s…

The Rap

UPDATE:  Fixed a couple of mistakes in the text. Hit refresh.  Thanks! Flying Ferret #29, Page 19 This is one of the pages I’ve been “dreading.”  I have rewritten this rap several times. The fortunate part of it, is that it didn’t have to be good.  At any rate, you finally get a peak into Flying Ferret’s origin.  I’m betting…

Beat

Flying Ferret #29, Page 18 Finally, the Flying Ferret meets only those he has seen in his dreams.  He is just as confused about his past as we are.  Just want to throw this out there, but just like the “Sandman” comic which these characters are spoofing, there still more to the “family.”  I hope one day to show the…

Half-stache

Flying Ferret #29, page 17 I finally did it! I finally bought a Cintiq!!!!  Yeah, a whole new drawing tablet you can draw directly on, and it’s amazing. No, I didn’t buy a new one. I was frugal and bought a used one from an animation school. It didn’t have a stylus or a power adapter, but even buying those,…

Ma & Pa

Issue #29, Page 16 Hah! Actually did a page in one day! I know I could do better if I had the time.  I had read somewhere that an independent comic creator would only make about $750 a month selling their comics (I think Terry Moore stated this figure).  So, I figured I had to create and sell 2.3 comics…

Lookback

Flying Ferret #29, Page 15 Haha! Could not wait to get to this page. Finally, a peek into FF’s past!  And we’ve only just begun! This is a short month.  I’m glad I got at least a couple pages up.  Anyway, as always, thanks for sticking with me.  I really do plan on redoing the website.  It’s going to be…

Mental Block

Flying Ferret #29, Page 14 I can’t believe I’m that far behind on the pages.  Didn’t think I was, but I guess I am, which goes to show just how fast time is flying around here!  Sorry about that.  Anyway, here’s the page on Valentine’s Day…too bad it’s not Valentine’s related.  And don’t worry, not ignoring the missus, there’s plenty…

Ferret down

Flying Ferret #29, Page 13 Again, editing… your best friend as a comic writer/artist….but it’s all for the better, tightening it up, giving you something that just won’t drag out. I had other things I wanted to tell you, but do you think I can think of it at this moment?  Heck, nooooo….. of course, I can’t.  Maybe that’s best….

Citadel of the Abstract

Flying Ferret #29, Page 12 I’m on a roll! Normally this time of year I barely get out one a month!  So proud of myself–and I even just had a wisdom tooth pulled yesterday!  That’s how dedicated I am!  Hahaha! Anyway, as if you haven’t guessed by now Sleepyhead and Time-Out are my parodies of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and his…

A little bit too much info

Flying Ferret #29, Page 11 This is a strange point in the comic.  I’m kind of winging it right now. I had an entirely different direction I was going, but then I stood back and looked at it and realized it would just drag out terribly for no good reason!   Also, I wanted to FF know about DJ’s situation,…
