That title may or may not be too on the nose. Oh well!
The proverbial cat is out the bag! An OPTIPESS BOOK will appear in bookstores here in Norway this autumn. (In Norwegian. An English version might follow down the line!) It will be released through renowned publisher Gyldendal, and I couldn’t be more excited! Here is a teaser image. (Not the final cover, mostly because I’ve already made another one.)
Woo! And yeah, this is why I’ve occasionally been busy elsewhere lately. I hope you can forgive me being overly coy about it, but I really didn’t want to jinx it. (I’ve probably somehow jinxed it NOW, though.) New Optipess comics will appear next week, hopefully following the regular schedule from then on.
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!)
