Fortune Cookie Part 2 (journal excerpt)

Continuing...

It seems the best of these entries are when I'm pulling on a live wire, and don't know exactly what's next. With some projects, when an author knows what he or she is trying to say, it's already a lesser story. I love it when I'm reading someone who keeps surprising himself.

Fortune Cookie Part 1 (journal excerpt)

Thanks for some nice encouraging messages from many of you about these little journal entries.

Since the first FIRST SECOND books don't actually release until April 2006, I'm waiting to post more about them, like sketches and such from the authors -- it's just a little early now. I can't wait to share the stuff. Right now, the books are in final proofs, and I'm dealing with a million little details on that front.

So right now, this site and this blog are gently warming up to a full head of steam in coming months. In the meantime, for you, friend, here are little bits to tide you over until then.

The journal entries below (and the ones following, in coming days) happened in March 05. The cat soldier belongs to another project of mine, but the fortune cookie writer just wandered in here one morning, and he's reappeared a few times since.

And on that one goes. I guess that's not much of a comics essay. A journal entry, more like.

journal excerpt "from the future"

These characters appeared quite surprisingly and have been recurring in the journal since.

Future2

And that conttinues from there. It is a journal, and not all of it fit for human consumption.

Hm. As you can see these first attempts are a little too wordy and demonstrative. They get better, especially when ideas are converted into action or pictures. This 'Comics Essay' business needs more research...
