gonna be famous

After reading one too many web comics and realizing that I possessed more talent in one hangnail than the entire online community, I set out to create a web comic whose brilliance would be matched only by it’s hilarity and humility.

It was not an easy road, and at many points during script development I had to completely shred everything I had and start over in the interest of staying true to my self and giving birth to an original idea that the world has never seen before. Then I started doing pencil tests on different types of characters, mapping out and analyzing every expression, stance, and texture that would becme part of my visual arsenal.

My strip shall be known as “Inconsequential,” and the first episode in this series, which I present to you now, is entitled: VAIN

waayyy cool drawing

As you can see, there were many sacrifices made to the rock bottom budget this production was forced to operate under, tasha and craig both have stubs where limbs should be, which I used to emphasize their feelings of helplessness and isolation, and they’re both utterly and completely naked, again twisted to my advantage by revealing how exposed they both are, though they lack the anatomy to be embarrassed about it. tasha only has one eye as the art department simply lacked the dollars and cents required to draw another eye, while craig’s face is conveniently covered with hair, as to whether or not he in fact has eyes, you will have to wait and see…

  3. HAHA! Wow, Red, you’ve done it again. Genius of the GUI. This is just fabulous. And judging from the comments of other fans there seems to be some real life inspiration and double meaning behind this staggering brilliance.

  7. […] The long awaited sequel in my to VAIN has finally arrived. I’m really not sure who the target audience is, to get the whole thing you’d have to recognize the people in the picture, understand more than a bit about networking, and know what a wormhole is. […]
