Hiatus, aka feel free to Hiate me

I should have mentioned this a long, long time ago. I am currently re-writing Bad Grammar (the entirety) in a big way, and have halted progress on chapter 2. I aim to have the gears turning again in another couple of months. Apologies for the slowness.

Chapter 2: Sketches

Just some sketches to show you all a glimpse of new characters/outfits you'll be seeing in Chapter 2. While Trevor and Ruby will be changing outfits, Michio won't. So I made this little sketch:

And here are some sketches of a character who will be introduced in chapter 2, Briana.

That's all I got for now. I don't want to spoil too much, after all. But before I go, I'll take this opportunity to let you know that Chapter 2 is going to be longer than chapter 1... I'm aiming for around 44 pages (twice the length!) but I can't give an exact count, since I tend to edit whenever the urge strikes me (case in point: Chapter 1 was supposed to be an even 20, then halfway through I decided to add on another 2 pages). Anyway, as Arnold says, I'll be back.

Book Debut

Purchase Chapter 1 on Lulu!

The book form of Bad Grammar: Chapter 1 includes all the comic pages I've shown here, in addition to some preview materials of chapter 2. If you enjoyed reading it on this blog, then perhaps you'd like a hard copy. Or perhaps you could give a review!

Remember, if you're attending SPX I'll be selling the books at a special price of five dollars each. One weekend only!

That's all there is to report for now.

Chapter 1, Page 22

And here we have it! The END. For now. What does all this mean? You'll see. Eventually.

Of course, this doesn't mean I'll be going on (another) blog hiatus. I'll be posting progress and such of chapter 2, until I have enough finished pages to start posting it. And, of course, news in the way of the chapter 1 book. Now off I trot.

Chapter 1, Page 21

And here you get a little peek at Michio's dad... Who is probably my favorite character in the whole comic. Also, I hope it's easy to see that he and Michio have the exact same evil cackle. (The same is true for myself and my mother, unfortunately). It was actually pretty challenging, trying to get the pacing right on this page, but I didn't want to have to extend it, because I didn't think it would work as well. Overall, I'm pleased with the result. Anyway, hope everyone has a happy labor day tomorrow-- I'll be posting chapter 1's exciting conclusion!

Chapter 1, Page 19 + 20

I think now would be a good time to mention that Bad Grammar is partially autobiographical... For instance, my first car was a black Camaro like the one on these pages. And the license plate "RUBZ" was something I witnessed in the emergency room parking lot when I sprained my hand back in the spring. Meanwhile, Ethel's Grave is based off a real "haunted" spot on Long Island called Mary's Grave. I actually drew the scene from my memories of my own visit there. Good times.

Anyway, we're approaching the end of the chapter! Exciting! I'll see you soon with another page.

Chapter 1, Page 18

I've run out of process-related things to say at this point. So I'm just going to let you enjoy this page for what it is, without my non-stop rambling. Peace.
