Let’s start this week’s GoGo Weekly off right, with an ART VIDEO filmed in glorious true 4k thanks to my bro’s sweet sweet camera!
I really really like making these art videos for a couple of reasons: it’s a fun excuse to make some chill background music and have a place to put it, and it’s filling my sketchbook with drawings that don’t suck! It’s weird how sometimes a project with defined parameters can really help me to slow down and make art I’m happy with. If I wasn’t making art videos, I wouldn’t sit down to sketch, let alone take the time to ink and paint stuff. I don’t know why my brain is that way but it is. Anyways, here’s another one:
I’ve also made some comics this week, including these weird little dudes:
I’ll make sure to make more of these mice comics when I get the chance. I love that they have no words, because that means little kids can get the jokes without needing to be able to read. …but maybe they’re a bit slapstick? But kids like slapstick? But maybe that’s not the best thing to encourage? ahhh i dunno. But they are fun to make!
I also made some more regular comics this week. AAAAND I want to comment on ’em each specifically, so BUCKLE UP!
It’s true, I’m back to school. Online school is basically what took the wind out of my sails when I was working on my masters at ACTS seminaries. To be sure, I took a few online classes that were MEANT to be online classes and I loved them- but when EVERYTHING transitioned to online classes, it was an absolute gong-show. Not every type of content is good to learn through (at best) video lectures or (at worst) forcing people to participate in the stupidest message-board conversations you’ve ever seen. BUT I am optimistic that this will be different- different course content, different school environment, etc etc etc.
To be sure, I DO know HOW to keep a pot of pasta from boiling over. I just don’t employ any of these methods when it comes to actually making pasta. People gave me some good tips though- use a bigger pot, put oil on top of the water, reduce heat, stir occasionally, etc and I endorse all of ’em, I just don’t do any of em. Maybe it’s intentional, maybe it’s laziness, but that dang pot always boils over and I’m left with a big ol’ mess to clean up. I suppose the exception would be vermicelli, but that’s because you cut the heat once the water boils and you put the noodles in.
I drew this comic at HumptyCon, a gaming convention put on by my buddy Seth. Good times!
A few reminders:
- If you are on WEBTOON, you can subscribe to me and you’ll get a light archive-dive in your feed every week day! It’s been fun putting these together.
- If you have a question for the mice to answer (either in video form, or just written out) send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll make another one of those videos!
You can buy a book if you’d like, just click here! I’m not a fancy internet storefront, I’m just a dude who likes to make comics, so if you want a book and don’t like the form, just send me a message and we’ll figure it out!
Thanks so much for reading these comics wherever you do, whether that’s here on the GoGo Weekly, or maybe on instagram or facebook or reddit or twitter or youtube or webtoon or whatever. Yikes- seeing it laid out like that, that’s a lot of places to update! Gah! Am i a frog, chilling in a pot of slowly boiling water?! Well when school gets in full swing I’ll likely have to cut back on where I update, but FEAR NOT! I’ll keep it all archived here on the ol’ website through these GoGo Weekly’s. Also, did you know you can subscribe to get these in your email inbox? Well you CAN! Just scroll down to the bottom of the site where you see THIS:
