I drew this on stream this past Saturday to an audience of one, so maybe I need to get the word out about the Saturday streams a bit more. I don’t do self-promotion very well, so I’m not surprised. If you’d like to watch me work on the newest page you can see me over on my Twitch channel every Saturday at 9pm Mountain Time. I don’t really say much unless there’s chat activity but it keeps me on task so I can get a lot done. Come on by, and help keep my feet to the fire so I can update more regularly.
So, I ended up drawing this while doing the livestream Saturday night (As I write this I finished the stream about half an hour ago) as there weren’t many people watching the stream, as I thought might happen. I rather enjoyed it and it made me feel. . . culpable to the watchers, so I didn’t get distracted while I was drawing. I think I’m going to start streaming every Saturday night and, maybe, it’ll keep me on task long enough to get out a page a week. Or a page a fortnight, at least.
I finally figured out how to import my Sketchup models into Clip Studio, so that definitely helped get the backgrounds looking good. Still hade to draw the outlines, though. One step at a time.
Next month will be the tenth anniversary of Gregor, and I wanted to do something fun. I couldn’t decide between a live stream and a character Q&A so I’ve decided to do both. I’ll be taking questions on here, the Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, and the Patreon until the 23rd of September, and then I’ll draw the responses on a live stream that Saturday, the 25th at 9pm Mountain Time. Feel free to ask any character any question and I’ll pick the best 4 to draw. Patreon members (which only costs a dollar US, btw) will get priority when I pick the questions. I look forward to your questions and I hope to see you on the 25th!
Coming up in September is Gregor’s 10 year anniversary and I have no idea what to do with this information. I thought, maybe have some guest comics? I’m still mulling it over. If you have any ideas feel free to leave a comment on this post or on my social medias.
Sorry about the long wait between pages, here. As you can see from the page it wasn’t super complicated, so I can’t blame the page itself. Long story short, my free time has drastically been cut since the birth of our second son. I’m going to try to get pages up a lot sooner (low hurdle, I know) and start posting Patreon content, as well. Pin-ups are pretty easy to pump out if I have a few hours of free time.
The problem with prepping one’s house to sell, is that it robs one of the time allocated to completing a page.
End of this Arc, folks! Next one is going to be fairly action-packed and a lot funnier. I’ve had this one script it out for a few years, but I just couldn’t figure out where I wanted to put it in the timeline. I should have a cover image for the next Arc up next week, and the next page shortly after that.
as some of you may be a aware, Project Wonderful, an advertising platform used by most webcomics, has shut down, leaving me with no advertising at the moment. This sucks as it has taken a big bite out of my traffic. So I am asking you to tell a friend about Gregor! Word of mouth is still the best way to get eyes on a project, after all!
Also, Gregor turned 7 yesterday! Cue fanfare! as a little birthday treat I put up a “remastered” version of the second page of this comic on my Patreon.
AND ANOTHER THING! I have a Gregor Instagram now! Just click on the link to the side of the comic where the lovely Chloe is standing!
EDIT: fixed the IG link. Who’d have thought that a simple semicolon would cause such a problem?
You know, I seem to remember the comic being about this guy…..
Portland readers! My wife and I will be selling our wares at Rose City Comic Con September 7th through the 9th! I’ll have the first printed volume of Gregor and we’ll both have a bunch of prints! Hope to see you there!
On a sadder note, my cat, Colby, the model for Gregor’s kitten of the same name, died yesterday in my arms. He was super sweet and loved to give love bites. We’ll miss him terribly.
