Hi, I made a C-Gear skin for Pokemon B/W/B2/W2 out of Aaron Diaz’s excellent Zelda game pitch, so I thought I’d share it here too in case anyone else is interested in such things. Note that you’ll need to be able to access your save file on a PC to transfer the .cgb file (I used an NDS Adapter Plus that I got cheaply off ebay, and I used Pokegen (google it) to edit the save file).
Have you seen the latest Wasted Talent comic?? Things are looking grim, but don’t worry, I’ve gotten my hands on the secret extended ending:
Hey guys. It’s been a while since I posted a comic or indeed anything else, so here’s an update on what’s going on.
Recently I’ve been dealing with depression again. It wasn’t as bad this time around and I think I’m pretty much through it now, but it’s still depression, right. The causes of it were annoyingly vague too, unlike last time when it pretty obviously followed on from porn addiction and dealing with asshole friends. But yeah, that has been my main obstacle to drawing comics of late. I’ve got a bunch of half-finished projects on my desktop, including that one about dinosaurs that I mentioned earlier this year, and these were part of the problem, I think: because the unfinished works were piling up, I was feeling like I wasn’t accomplishing anything, which further reinforced negative thoughts, and so on etc etc. You know how these ridiculous things go.
In light of this, I’ve decided to set aside all those unfinished projects for a while, and return to them once I’ve gotten some positive habits built up again. For the time being, I’m just going to focus on that spin-off comic I mentioned in a previous post. It’s a nice, short story that I can work away on in managable chunks, and hopefully start to actually enjoy drawing again along the way - especially since most of the story is just people having sex. I realised back when I was drawing this comic that erotica was really the thing that I am most comfortable and satisfied with drawing, not just for the obvious reasons, but also because of some of the more boring intellectual stuff that I harped on about on my blog at around the same time.
So there’s that. I’ve sketched out around 14 pages so far, and I’ll probably sketch the whole thing out before I start drawing it properly, so it won’t be going up straight away but it hopefully isn’t too far off. In the meantime, perhaps you would like to read a short story starring some of the characters from Comical Interlude?? It’s called The Train That Couldn’t Slow Down and I wrote it several years ago, but I’ve heavily rewritten it over the past week because it was rather horrible. Now, though, I think it’s pretty okay??

All right, I guess that’s it for now. I’ll let you know on twitter when I have some more comics to share.
