i remember when i was in second grade and i kept doing spit bubbles in class and i got in trouble because the teacher thought it was gross and told me to stop and i kept doing it it was fun!!!!!!
Ha! She didn’t know real talent when she saw it! :D
You said awhile back you’d be making more comics, still planning on that? I just can’t get interested in most of these “videos.” They come across like a visually short comic with walls of text. Think you could post the storyboard OR just all the individual pictures from the videos each week as well?
Aw, sorry you can’t get into the videos.
Well, next year I’m planning on making them a little longer, and also showing the animatics as well. There will be stand alone books coming out as I find the time to make them. It’s hard to whittle the time out of my schedule to make any of these things, so keep your fingers crossed, and thanks for the comment!
I expected something slightly disgusting, but it’s all very cute and adorable! :) Great expressions! The subject calls for interesting new mouth shapes and boy, do you deliver!
I have watched & will watch every video, but not always in the week they’re delivered. Watching videos requires a different mindset from reading comics. When I’m clicking through webcomics, I’m not likely to switch to a video. Other Dumm readers have expressed similar concerns. Apparently switching to a different mode forms some kind of treshold for comic readers.
Thanks so much for the kind words and the keen insight. I’m glad to hear that you are watching them, even if they aren’t the week of release. I guess it is a different mindset for watching something compared to reading it, I never really thought of it that way. In my own experience, it’s almost easier to watch something then to read it. I still think that these shorts are exactly what I was doing in the comics, only animated…
The difference between reading & viewing is that reading requires a more active mindset & allows the reader to choose their own pace & even to go back a few pages when this is helpful in understanding the story. Viewing requires the audience to sit back & surrender themselves. Which is not to say that viewing is passive, because as a viewer I’m still actively looking for the kind of clues & details that I would spot in a comic.
I agree that your Life in the Analog Age comics & videos are very close in tone, substance & style. I think they’re both equally enjoyable & would have a hard time choosing one over the other. I also think it’s great that you keep pushing to develop these characters & make them do new things. The mouth shapes in the spit bubble video are a great example. Keep up the good work! :)
