Plans to Push It Up a Notch- Sep 04/2017

Fellow adventurers. I thought I'd do a quick update on how things are. - Things are still up in smoke, and life is very unorganized right now. Saying that, however, I've doubled my efforts to make progress with the comics. So things are running a little smoother for Mirrorwood Comics than I imagined. Expect at least one new Annyseed every week, possibly on a Monday or Friday.

Life is What Happens To You While You’re Busy Making Other Plans- Aug 07/2017

Hey everybody! I'm just letting everyone know how things are right now. There have been delays with page uploads and although I'm over the moon now that I'm moving forward with Colour of Ivy. Things are going a little slower than I want them too. (at least they are going though.) Simply put, my dad has developed Dementia, my daughter has Autism, and my wife has social anxiety disorder. So work on Mirrorwood comics has to come fourth, unfortunately.

I've decided to move the family closer together, for everyones happiness, and terminate my current PT business, re-set things up again back in my hometown, Shrewsbury. So I'm going to be traveling between my parents and my house every week until we can all move closer to the hometown. I will take what work I can with me. But I feel this will probably slow production down a little more. We'll see how things go though. And I will continue to focus on making the best graphic novel I can possibly make. Wish me luck!

Apology- May 12/2017

Hi folks, I have an apology to make for the lack of continuity with Annyseed uploads. I sometimes fall behind with updating it, and it's become a little spuraddic. This is due to the demand of my work and fatherhood. Certain times of year I find I'm more freed up and less exhausted. But this is definitely not one of them. As always I will do my very best to keep pushing the pages on and working towards an awesome website full of entertainment.

Also if you're wondering, have I altered the colours in Colour of Ivy, the answer is yes. I decided that all the night time scenes needed a more moonlight feel so they have been altered a little. This is definitly the final versions though.

Old Comic, Evildweeb, is back up- Aug 30/2016

An old comic I did back when I was in my teens has been added to the Mirrorwood Archive this week.

Click Here to read!

It's not my greatest work. But I feel it deserves a place on here. It ends with a- To be continued... caption. There are actually over 100 pages of Evil Dweeb Inked. But only the ones on this site have been finished. Whether or not I return to them at a later date, is probably a no, but it's not out of the question.

I still haven't printed another batch of Annyseed Vol 1, but I will sort something out for those that want a copy. :)

Thirdly I would like to apologise for not always posting pages up on time. Right now I am juggling time with my PT business and wife and daughter. I'm going through the busy years of my life, I think.

Mirrorwood News - April 16/2016

Well, to make up for the lack of printed copies of Annyseed, I've decided to add a couple of Annyseed T-shirts to my Red Bubble Shop, enjoy!

The Shape of Things to come.

Hey everybody, I'd like to keep these news feeds semi-regular, so perhaps every half year is fitting?

There's been a lot on my mind lately. I have so many stories waiting to be turned into comics that sometimes I wonder how I'm ever going to get them all done... Enter my anxiety and frustration.

I decided that if I write a little something in here about what's in the pipeline it should cover both jobs of releasing me from some of my anxiety and hopefully get you excited about my plans for the future of Mirrorwood Comics. So here goes!

1: Annyseed - the Blood of Another - Volume 1 Paperback.

Firstly, Annyseed - the Blood of Another, is almost complete, and soon, I'll be making a paperback version of Volume 1 available on the website in January, which will feature pages 1 to 105, cool inlay artwork, and a new cover.

It'll only be a small print on demand job, so no barcode or ISBN, just something for friends, family and fans.

2: Annyseed's Sequel is currently under production.

That's right, Annyseed - and the Hive of the Serpent King is slowly moving forward. It'll be scripted and coloured by myself, S.J.Brown, Penciled by fantastic artist Nivaldo Wesley, and Inked by the pixel perfect hand of Cole Brustad. I'm paying the guy's partially out of my own pocket and partly with funds raised from your loving donations. Thanks for all your support!

3: The Biggest Project I Will Ever Do.

Despite my plans to put together 4 Annyseed titles; once I've finished Annyseed 1, I'm going to focus my creative skills on my main project, Colour of Ivy.

As much as I would love to keep drawing Annyseed, not much bar the writing will be done by myself after the first two stories.

You see, there's a nasty little creature that's gnawing at huge chunk of my soul, and it will not grant me contentment until I have completed my 700 page epic.

I've been building the world of Colour of Ivy for the past 20 years of my life, and there comes a point when you just want to do something from the heart, for yourself. So whatever it is that's been putting me off doing it all these years seems to have been replaced with, yep, you guessed it, more anxiety. - Something about having a little girl and seeing her grow up so fast makes you realise your own mortality I guess.

It's time to get to work!

Mirrorwood News - July 13/2015

An apology and a story.


A new website for a fresh start.

Firstly thanks to all you readers who have not forgotten Annyseed, you've stuck by it and waited for signs of life for so long it's unbelievable. Please accept my sincere apologies for such a long wait. It's been a rough ride trying to get things set so that I can continue. For those of you new to Annyseed, the webcomic has been out of commission since August 2013.

Please read ahead if you'd like to know why.- It all started when my wife and I had a baby girl, Paisley. During the pregnancy we moved house... Then our landlady became bankrupt and we had to move for a second time. On top of this I had been spending roughly 80 hours a week away from home, building up a business to support the family; this left little to no time for anything else. Fortunately, when it came to the second relocation, I managed to move us just 8 minutes away from where I've been running my business, (as apposed to 26 miles away such as our circumstances were after the first move.) knocking down my travel time significantly, and giving me an extra 2236 hours per year.

So what's happening with Annyseed now?


Now, instead of returning to Annyseed right where I left it, I've decided to give it an overhaul and re-start the whole thing, right back from the beginning. I feel like I need this in order for it to feel fresh again, and to get us all back into the story. (2 years is a long time to put down a book.)

And why the new Website?


The same reason.- Life is far too complicated to add even more complication to it. I wanted the website to be straight to the point. No rubbish, just a place to read comics.

I've started things up with the first 3 pages, and will be updating it every Friday from here on in.

So what are the noticeable changes?

Totally new website with the company name, and straight forward layout, so that there is more focus on the comic.

Larger pages. The pages are virtually twice the size now, so that more detail can been seen and the reading experience can be more immersive.

Lighter contrast in the artwork, so that the artwork looks more crisp.

Re-draws on panels I'm unhappy with.

Also, the only change I've made that might not get 100% approval, is taking out the red highlights. I've done this because of the lighter contrast. I didn't want the red to take over the pages and I didn't want it lighter because it turned from red to pink. So instead, I've taken it right out.

And what do you have planned for the future of Mirrorwood comics?

I'm currently finishing off Annyseed 1, I've also hired two brilliant artists to work on Annyseed 2 which will be on here right after, and then there's a further two Annyseed stories in the pipeline. There are also a number of other projects in the works. Including my raison d'être, Colour of Ivy.
So things are really looking up from here on in.
Enjoy the new website and the re-mastered comic!
