Yet another exciting February 1st in my life! At least the soundtrack is banging V^(oo)^V

Reconstruction in progress …

I had to move to a new host after the website went offline for an unknown reason, and my old web host simply did not respond.

Since I wasn’t planning on it and didn’t have proper backups to work with, I’m having some issues with setting it up at the new host.
The worst thing is that the comicpress pages aren’t working (Dog Island and Driftwood) – the navigation is completely fucked and I have not found a solution yet.
Could it really be that the easiest solution is to rebuild the entire sites from scratch … T^T

Stay tuned I guess V`(oo)´;V


I figured it out, but not before I re-uploaded every single one of the Dog Island pages haha …
The navigation/connection between the comic posts in Comicpress (or WordPress) was lost somewhere in the migration, so the navigation wasn’t working and the “next” and “previous” buttons were gone.
But it turns out all I have to do is re-categorize the posts.
1. Rename the old categories (also rename the slugs/shorthands) under “Posts -> Categories” in WordPress
2. Create new categories under “Comicpress -> Storyline structure”, using the names of the categories you want to have (i.e. the old names, or better ones)
3. Go through all 408 posts and change the category to the new ones I just created – et voilà, the navigation is back and working!
4. Delete the old broken categories (if you want – on my sites they don’t get displayed anyway if they have no posts)


In a new record for me, I did a total of three (3) posts for Inktober 2022! I was going to do more, but stuff and thangs happened. V`(oo)´V

Coral necklaces (real and fake) used to be a thing in the 80s. I mixed it up with several different prompt lists again for this year’s Inktober, and this one was for #facetober day 1: “coral, red hair, sunglasses” – which of course made me think of Eva
Again with just the  lineart:

Orion as I saw it (him?!) at night in Galičica National Park in Macedonia, with zero light pollution. It blew my mind! There is literally the outline of his face and bow. The temperatures dropped below zero and we weren’t really prepared for that, but this was absolutely worth it.
This one was for #artober by thainaaraujoe, day 2: “pick a constellation”

Then, finally, #facetober day 9: “royal, curly hair, blooms”
Shannon (from Driftwood and Dog Island) may be the closest of my main characters to any sort of royalty (some kind of pirate royalty!), has curly hair, and is sitting in front of some tiger lilies :3
Maybe I should have been arsed at some point to connect my drawing tablet for the colouring, instead of doing it with my mouse like it’s 2001 …
And just the lineart:

Well, I’d planned on doing all the main characters from Driftwood/Dog Island like this, but it didn’t happen this time … Maybe next October I’ll draw more :3 (It’ll be hard not to beat ’22 for sure xD)


Yet another uneventful February 1st for me, and on top of that I was feeling really tired and unmotivated … Maybe next year I should plan something special for Hourly Comic Day. :3

Comics production of 2018-2021

I was just scouring the internet for embarrassing old content of mine that I might want to delete, when I found a post that explained why I started keeping track of how many comics pages and panels I’ve drawn in my life. I’d forgotten all about the reason along the way, but it was actually inspired by SPQR Blues artist Klio, who set a goal to basically learn drawing properly by finishing 10,000 drawings (where “drawings” equal comic panels).

So now I have to update my progress!

(As usual I’m generously classifying anything with more than one panel or both a drawing and text as a “comic”, unless it’s really just a tiny sketch … too late to change that now or I’d have to adjust the total numbers since the beginning! And it kind of works anyway.)

Number of pages and panels I have drawn since January 26th 2018:

Hourly Comics Day 2018, 8/15
– Bilderberg “Tin///tina and the Omega Art” page, 1/11
(See below – apparently I never posted it anywhere before, probably due to the Bilderberg collective’s fears of copyright claims from the estate)
Hourly Comics Day 2019, 7/17
Bilderberg “Hanswurst” page, 1/5
Inktober 2019: Bait, 1/1
Hourly Comics Day 2020, 9/15
Dog Island chapter 1, pages 20-29, and chapter 2, pages 0-5, 16/86
(Back from a 6 year hiatus, thanks to corona and the meaninglessness of life, when I figured I could do whatever I want. Unfortunately that attitude was bad for discipline so I didn’t get all that far yet.)
Inktober 2020 day 4, 1/1
Shila’s haiku, 1/1
Hourly Comics Day 2021, 16/30
Frog and Toad have a sleepover, 9/9
Inktober 2021 day 4 and 6, 2/3
ENQILOB, 14/40
Bloodletting page 1-7, 7/42
No More Coffee Woman, 1/3
How I Make Comics, 1/2
I don’t want to be grown up, 1/1
Draft of page 1-2 for a so far nameless comic project, 2/1
(That double page spread sucked so bad that I didn’t continue it or even redraw it … yet. I really like the script though so I want to draw this comic at some point.)


98 pages, 283 panels

(All-time total: 1248/5375)

This was really not a lot for FOUR YEARS … but it was something, a lot more than nothing ^^ And in the last year or so I drew more than in the three years before.

I actually didn’t find any unpublished comics in my sketchbooks, at least the ones that are not in my garden. Maybe because I’ve been posting that kind of stuff on instagram right away (and I also didn’t draw terribly much T^T).

I’m still barely halfway towards 10,000 panels! Frustrating …

Tin///tina and the Omega Art page 10 – click to read:
It’s a gender swapped and awesome interpretation of the last, unfinished book. A different artist drew each page and this was my contribution. The gender swapped character design of the twins was for the most part by me :3
