New project in the works / by J. Logan Carey

I've been itching to get illustrating on a webcomic of my very own for a while now. It's going to be an anthology series of of the twelve short stories from my book Zodiac.  Each story is based on the mythology figures behind the constellations in a variety of genres and settings. Some take place in the far flung reaches of space, some at the edge of madness, and some in places all too familiar. 

Now, I've never done a webcomic before. Hell, I've never drawn a comic before. I've written comic scripts and drawn for fun all my life, but I've never combined the two and gotten serious about it. 

Well that's the plan. They'll be released on this site throughout the year and will be free to read. I'll also document the process of making the webcomic from an amateur's perspective and detail any tips or tribulations I run into. Maybe that could help some others looking to jump into the game. The internet is ripe for quality comic content. There are already some great examples out there, but there's always room for one more.

The first story I'll be doing will be Gemini, hopefully coinsiding with the period of the year that we're under the sign. That's the goal. Here's the first storyboard page:

It's rough stuff, I know. Still can't be but a little proud of the first storyboard page I've ever made.

This next fellow over here is one of the desert-dwelling people in the story who worship the Gemini constellation as their twin deities.  He looks a little ragged. Desert living is harsh.

That's a short, but sweet intro to the project. I hope you guys check it out and I'd love to hear what you think!
