It's Friday night and I have no plans/friends/life - so I kept on customizing the blog! Next step: Angst-ridden poetry? Nah. Emo rock? Hell no. A long post about my feelings? Eh, maybe later.
No, it's time to POST ANOTHER PICTURE TO BALANCE OUT THE PAGE MORE!!!
This image, resembling a Chick tract (but only half as hilarious) is a teaser for the first arc of my comic strip, Precocious.
OK, now it's later!
Today DC Simpson, creator of Ozy and Millie officially announced the strip was coming to an end. It had been obvious he had begun winding down, but the announcement still hit me hard. I had told my friends for months now that I hoped Precocious would be the next strip to carry the torch once Ozy and Millie ended its run. There have only been a handful of strips that truly connect with me, and they've inspired me to move forward and stand on the shoulders of these giants. I never really expected the timing to be *this* close - I sorta wanted some time to develop my skills (and, you know, gain more fans than just myself) - but now it looks like Precocious' launch will be right as Ozy and Millie comes to a close. Maybe I'm an egotistical fool to think I can step in - especially with so many other established quality webcomics out there - but I have to aim high, right?
Now I'm feeling weepy sentimental. And I'm writing about my feelings. CURSE YOU, BLOGGING!
