Aww, adorable! Also, this comic is indeed an homage to the demented work of horror manga artist Junji Ito.
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!
Turns out the comic I had planned for Friday’s update started kicking my ass, as opposed to the other way around, so I’m pushing it to next week. (Or scrapping it completely, I haven’t decided yet.)
Until then, check out this time lapse video I made showing the making-of process behind the recent “Soul Snatch” comic! Hopefully it proves that webcomics don’t make themselves, contrary to popular belief.
