HOOKAY big thread time:
It's been one week since I announced , and in that week, I've pretty much come to terms with what I've started. With that, I can finally post everything (I think) that I've officially come up with.
In addition to the submission guidelines below, I have a few things that I forgot to mention:

When you submit, don't forget to submit an About The Author blurb about yourself!

If I make more issues, they'll come out quarterly (every three months)...

Hi there everyone. Second time writing an intro, so let's go.

I'm David, a comics writer/artist who can also be found @David_A_Webcomic. I've been drawing comics for quite a while, and I've been posting them recently on Socel. However, Socel isn't exactly as *active* as I it to be, so I've decided to come over here and post on both accounts. Hopefully this'll work out favorably.

One of these days I must go through and quantify my comic collection, both in size and in price.

Unfortunately, the Overstreet Guide To Comic Book Prices doesn’t have British comics, and part of that collection includes a buttload of inherited 2000 A.D. (from Britain).

I was curious about the status of the domain so I went on a domain name lookup to see if it was claimed. Turns out it was, through GoDaddy, but the page told me nothing about the contents of the domain. So I decide to go straight to the domain.

It’s owned by The Brothers Chaps (the creators of Homestar Runner).
It redirects to the SBemail pizza joint, where the domain is mentioned.

Somehow, I both expected and didn’t expect that.

i don’t know how to draw a fight scene

why am i doing my first one in something that i’m actually publishing?

Sometimes I wish I was part of a ring of artists that just kinda did art stuff together and whose works were just kinda associated with one another.

After finishing my 52nd strip yesterday, I started on the second part of my continuing #TalesFromTheFediverse story which picks up right where the last one started.

And let me tell you I have learned a lot since late March.

Like I’m only one page in and it’s already considerably better.

you ever pause a video at *just* the right moment so that when you come back to it after a few minutes you just get the best out of context three seconds?

food, pain 

Today: David and Hannah talk about art.

Also the strips one year anniversary is in a few weeks!

I honestly wonder if anyone’s claimed the domain because that would be a kick-ass instance.

here have a picture that I don't think I've ever shared on here

I drew it shortly after I found a whole-ass electric typewriter from I think the early to mid 90's that was just kinda going to waste

hot damn I need to make an art of the two together don't I

seriously though what the heck does "install" *mean*

it's just kinda there in the url bar, I don't know why it's there, and I want to click it but I also don't want to screw anything up

I'm gonna be honest my two favorite characters to draw are Steve The Penguin and Hannah (even though I kinda just introduced her).
Steve because he's just such a bizarre character to do and his design is just so different from the human characters (it's just fun to see how expressively I can draw his beak without it looking weird), and Hannah because her hair's just fun to draw in general. It's considerably more natural than anybody else's in the strip.

Why don’t you get notifications for follower requests?

It just feels like something you should get.

I mean not that it really applies to me I don’t get follower requests that often but still...

Like legit what would happen if all the qualified personnel on the Fediverse assembled in a studio and made an animated series

What chaos would ensue

Yeah sure I only started posting my strip publicly in late December, but I had a Discord group that I originally posted the first few months worth of strips on.
It’s really been here that I’ve had the opportunity to grow, though.

I just want to reiterate exactly *how* important getting my strip to the one year mark is.

Before I started actually publishing it, I had little to no follow-through on any of my own personal projects. Hell, my desk is just a cavernous nightmare of missed potential and false starts.

Now that I actually have a motivation and a genuine drive, I feel a hell of a lot more satisfied with my own artistic endeavors.

And for most of that I have you guys to thank.
