ECTOPIARY, Page 17

Latest Page Viewable HERE

This another page that I'm reasonably pleased with; only a few minor quirks with this one. No doubt, in a year's time, I may amend my opinion.
Things are improving for me here in Hawley. I now have employment at a rustic shop that specializes in local cheeses and quaint countrified sundries. It's not much $$, but my survival is no longer imperiled.
Since moving to Massachusetts, my page buffer for Ectopiary has shrunk considerably. I am now hustling to correct this. New pages are coagulating on my drawing table at this very moment.
Old comics occasionally bubble to the surface. Here is another C&E single-pager rejected by newspapers worldwide. Please enjoy!

ECTOPIARY, Page 16

Ectopiary, Page 16 looks nice. Obviously, I'm still introducing characters. Maybe eventually plot propulsion will increase.

I've been using Project Wonderful to boost readership, and it seems to be working. Now I recommend people buy some books; or better yet, you can purchase some of the remaining CHLOE pages!

This week, I'm posting a record cover commision that I did a couple of years ago for Katt Hernandez. It's an excellent vinyl album, really; haunting improvised microtonal solo violin. You can check out her website for upcoming performances. If you wish to buy the record, you can contact her via katthernandez(at)gmail(dot)com.

ECTOPIARY, Page 15

I like Page 15 simply because it contains a stuffy old lady denigrating beatniks and artists; that is always a winning ingredient of any succsessful book, in my opinion. Upcoming pages feature better artwork. I'm slowly loosening up my style, though I suspect it may not be at all apparent to my diminishing readership.

This week, I will be utilizing Project Wonderful to promote the webcomic. Does anybody have suggestions for suitable websites that I should advertise on? I'm genuinely in need of feedback.

Below are the pencils for an upcoming Ectopiary panel. It will be interesting to see how different the inked-in version will be. Thanks for reading!

ECTOPIARY, PAGE 14

Lovely day. I am enjoying the slow warming among the wooded hills of Hawley, Massachusetts. New possiblities are looming on the horizon. I am hopeful.

Page fourteen is okay; Nothing spectacular. It moves the plot along. I wish it were better-drawn. What are your thoughts?

No new goodies to post this week, so here's the color version of an old Cochlea & Eustachia one-pager. It was rejected by The Philadelphia City Paper and The Seattle Stranger. Eventually, it found a home on the back cover of HOAX #2 by Mental Note Press. It needs your love:
