The other night at a cloudscape meeting, we had to introduce and say what our first original character was. The only one I could think of was my high school (and maybe even into college) comic project, a terrible comic called “end of the day” which a buddy of mine made a website for. Arcangelos and isis (the Egyptian goddess, not the Islamic state) were actual character names. I hope those comics are lost forever.
back then, Penny arcade guys were my heroes, and I was reading old webcomics like “10k commotion,” “fallen,” and… I wanna say, slackers? Oh, and megatokyo.
anyways, I remembered today that I had some re-occurring characters that I’d make comic strips about from elementary school through to now, and so I guess they would actually be my first original characters.
