This is pretty much a Black Mirror episode. Charlie Brooker, call me!
Oof, I’ve spent the last few days sick in my bed, only getting up occasionally to lie on my couch instead – so I haven’t been able to draw any comics unfortunately. But with some luck I should probably recover in time for regular updates continuing later this week. Fingers crossed! Until then, here is a time-lapsed making-of video showing how the recent comic ”Searching…” was made.
My pesky day job summoned me out of town this week, so there was unfortunately no time left to make a comic for today. Instead, check out this video documenting my process of producing the comic Important Timing from a while back. Enjoy! Regular comic updates should resume soon.
No new comic today as I’m on a much deserved(?) vacation. Instead, check out this time-lapsed making-of video featuring the comic “Alien Spawn” from a while back. (Final version here.)
This video was part of the ongoing Patreon rewards. Supporting Optipess on Patreon will give you access to a bunch more videos and other stuff. (And I can afford to make more comics!)
Big news! I have now launched a Patreon campaign! Patreon is basically like an ongoing Kickstarter – a way for you, the readers, to support your favorite artists who just happen to provide their content free on the Internet. And like a lot of Internet creators, I’m unfortunately required to have a day job on the side to pay the bills.
Through a Patreon campaign, my awesome readers have a chance to pay back however much you want on a monthly basis. Oh, and the comics will still absolutely be free on this site forever, but as a Patreon supporter you also get access to a bunch more cool stuff like work-in-progress shots, advance comics, time-lapse videos and more!
As a supporter you would also be ensuring that I can continue doing what I love to do. Thanks!
