Ok! Give me like a week! :D
I’ve been making a lot of little train of thought-y comics as warmups to bigger projects I’m working on.
you don’t want to draw like me
It’s been a crazy cool dream come true for me- I don’t know if what happened to me was the conventional way but here’s what happened!
for Cartoon Network: I was contacted by a showrunner after they saw some of my comics online, I had kept a regular update schedule of three times a week (I’ve cut back because of fun work stuff), and was given a storyboard test, which is a little packet with a story prompt and other activities- I did well enough to get to work on some episodes! Woohoo!
for Bee&Puppycat: I was contacted by Natasha because she had read my comics and said super nice things about them and asked if I wanted to write and I said YES!!!
So far every cool opportunity come out of making as many comics as I can and putting them online while trying to get better and learn new things.
Producing work and going to conventions and meeting people is a good way to network and get your name out there!
Hope this helps!! :))))
Books are so great!
All of my comics are for sale in my lulu store »HERE«
AND! Lulu ships worldwide :)
Sure! If you bring it to a comic show that I am at I’d be glad to sign it, but it will be sloppy!
I’m not sure what shows I will be attending in 2014 but this would be the place that I’d post about it!
um… maybe it’s more like two days… i miscounted somewhere
thank you to everyone that funded the kickstarter, thank you to everyone who couldn’t but wanted to, and thank you to everyone who told other people about it. It’s such a huge honor that you all have given us the opportunity to make new episodes to share with you!!
*:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧ I’m so excited!!!! *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧

"The small publisher Retrofit has announced Wicked Chicken Queen by Sam Alden as the first book of its 2014 season, according to a statement by Box Brown earlier today. The 25-year-old Alden has been the subject of increased attention in comics circles over the last few months for a barrage of mostly on-line comics works.
Brown also announced several of the creators that will potentially make up the bulk of next year’s Retrofit release list: Zac Gorman, Madeleine Flores, Antoine Cosse, Niv Bavarsky, Josh Bayer, Anne Emond, Ben Constantine and Jack Teagle. The possibility for a few more cartoonists being added remains a significant possibility.”

I’m making a comic with Retrofit this year! Look at all those people who are making comics!
