An Irregular Christmas

It’s time for Irregular Webcomic!’s Christmas Strip.

For the record, the Richard Storrs Willis music for It Came Upon the Midnight Clear sounds like this (from the archives of my former life).

    I figured as much since you were waihctng a game during one of the cast. News of S.Euclid & surrounding area: Good news: Microcenter is still there (geeks celebrate)!!! There is an Apple Store near Beachwood Place! Bad news: Border is dead (Beachwood Place) *ponder* Mayfield Road is a lot nicer, it’s been widen near 271 (maybe 10yrs ago?). Great news: There are a ton’ of sushi places in North East Ohio we finally have culture! There is a Marcs serving Coventry in place of the drug store. Macks Back is still alive!!!!!!! Harvey Peckar passed away. Les Robert is still writing detective books. Regina is gone. Other than those things, nothing else come to mind about the area.I’m afraid you’re right about that warning: not to wait until things are perfect’ to launch my story. I know this on the subconscious level; but, was too insecure to consciously acknowledge it. I’m determine to reprogram my mind so that I can do instead of procrastinate. I have a troubling question: Should I throw all concerns to the wind and launch my comic regardless of the level of my art? It seems like an idiotic question specially I know the answer is YES!!!! Just do it!!! ; but, I do need to hear it from other people who is not me. Yeah, there is a huge insecurity in me: is my art skill good enough? A tiny bit about myself:I’ve been attending anime cons since 1991. I attended a handful of other cons before anime. I rather attend anime cons than SCA events. I rather attend anime cons than MarCon, MidOhio Comic Con, GenCon or Origins. With friends to share expenses, I’m able to attend over six cons a year. The furthest is Anime Central, Otakon, SugoiCon .all at the furthest 6hrs driving range from Cleve (home of the new Avenger movie!) I will try to make it to Intervention Con for the Saturday (I have friends I can stay with in Germantown, one of the few non-anime con that I am actually hype to attend (because of that needing to be around peers and mentors in making my comic .and the networking aspect, too!)My script:I’ve been consciously working on this story for almost a year. Looking back, I can see that I’ve been subconsciously working on elements of it for my entire life. It’s a 3 and a half part story about a young person that’s trapped in an unwanted situation that is constantly moving from place to place (there will be explosions, too).I have my script partly outlined. The key points are fixed in it’s order. The day by day events, action/drama of characters and character’s interaction/development are Works In Progress.I believe I have enough outline to tell 1/4 of the story.My tools (close to complete):1 13 macbook1 MangaStudio ex4 (had a huge discount, great features!!!!)1 Photoshop (too expensive even with an academic discount)1 4 6 Wacom tablet (missing literally packed in a box and is missing in storage) Without a tablet, I think I will return to my most favorite medium: 4H lead, paper and electric eraser!Future Equipment:1 9 12 (15 ) DIY Cintiq (for Cons)1 DIY iBook Tablet (from an old 12 mac notebook for Cons)1 i7 DIY hackintosh
