touch of Horror and High School Drama, which later found it's
way into it's successor, Annyseed, 'Annyseed-Evildweeb'
is an old comic that I put together back in my teens.
Before this I did hundreds of mini comics, the likes of which
probably never be seen by public eyes because they were, to
put it bluntly, badly done.
This one, however, and the one before it, 'X-ers' were ok.
actually sent the first few pages of, 'X-ers' out to comic artist
Terry Moore, who, that same year, had just recieved an Eisner
award for his comic, 'Strangers in Paradise'. He kindly responded
to an eager 16 year old me, telling me that he thought it was
cool, and I should seek out publishers, rather than fellow artists,
lol, I wonder if he remembers that?
his approval was enough for me. I did the opposite and decided
to do the standard thing of seeking an appropriate course at
a University. Times were changing, the internet was becoming
mainstream and digital art was coming in. The comic industry
totally changed. I couldn't find an appropriate course in the
U.K, but I learned what I needed from the two that I went on.
I studied Computer animation, then Multi-media Art. Finally
getting my degree in the latter in 2005.
was pencilled and inked back in 1998, originally there were
over 100 pages,
but eventually the project was abandoned, as I felt it's formular
was already exhausted after the first four or five stories.
also started feeling sorry for the main character half way through,
and began to turn the jokes back on Biff the antagonist.
This possibly made it more comical in some ways, but caused
it to lose it's original bite.
anything, Evildweeb was an exercise in short story writing,
pacing, blocking and layout.
tone was added to the first 36 pages back in the early 2000's
to finally wrap it up.
It's doubtful I'll go back to colour the other 70 pages.
