So I talked the talk, but I most definitely could not walk the walk. I'm referring to my hopes of making an online web based comic strip, similar to an online graphic novel. I had planned out several characters, story lines and enough material for this supposed comic to go on for a long time, but with a full time job that already had me drawing and designing all day, a weekly full page comic was really not feasible to fit into my schedule. As much as I wanted it to happen, I don't think it will. If anything, I'll at least make a more dedicated website for my gag type comic strips that I already post on this blog. If I don't have time for a fully rendered and executed comic strip then I would at least make some sort of quick and simple comic just to get out the various ideas I have but never have time to do. Stay tuned for a slightly less zealous attempt at a weekly web comic sometime in the future...Or not.

Oh, and here is the first page of the graphic novel type of weekly web comic I started. Sucks to read an unfinished story, I know.

My Spin on Goblins

Here is a neat little drawing I took from my sketch book, inked and colored. I recently bought some new ink and paper for inking comics and I'm must say I'm quite pleased with the results. This was more of an experiment to practice inking, but I think it turned out well. I should be posting more experiments soon. Also, this character will be one of the first in my up and coming web comic (though he'll play only a minor role).

At the Mercy of the Alarm Clock

Have you ever woken up in the morning feeling so refreshed, so awake and so ready to conquer the world only to realize it's way to early to be thinking about those sort of things? I know I have. Sometimes we wake up with great ambitions and goals to accomplish a lot that morning, but when we never make it out of bed in time, we never accomplish much. Kudos to those who wake up at ridiculous hours of the morning to get things done.

On a side note, I haven't used a traditional alarm clock in over 2 years. My method of waking up now is my phone's alarm clock which is really just hearing the theme song from Smallville every morning. It may sound weird, but it works.

On the Drawing Board

I don't sketch as much as I should, let alone post what I do to show my friends. I've had a few friends and lots of people I admire who have created and sustained a weekly web comic (some even daily). I think I'm done admiring and beginning to think I want to try my hand at it. Unfortunately a weekly web comic by me (in which I create any world and any situation) would not involve young single adults and their witty banter, even though I would still do those on occasion. I'll keep everyone posted, but for now enjoy these sketches which may or may not have anything to do with my new web comic idea.

Samurai Lion

So a long time ago there was the theme of "brave" on Illustration Friday. Being my lazy self, I started this little sketch back then but never finished it. Two months later I finally sat down and finished it so that I could post it on this blog. And of course nothing says "brave" like a samurai lion. He's king of the jungle and of the katana. Boo-ya!

Vague Dating Speech

Finally, after months and months of no comics I can finally post a new one. I really don't give myself enough times these days for comics and other random illustrations. When I'm not working my full time job, drawing and comics are sometimes the last things I want to come back to after a long day of designing. Usually when I'm done working I just want to play, run errands, hang with friends, or bake delicious goodies.

May Friend

It's been awhile since I've posted anything of relevance. I was hoping to post a comic or some random illustration, but I'm too lazy and busy with regular work to accomplish that. Instead, I'm posting some illustrations I did that were published in the May issue of Friend magazine. The article is about how to prepare for a talk. As illustrated, you can see that studying the topic out in your mind and praying about it always helps. I'll try to post another illustration soon.

Not the Competitive Type

It's always a good idea to get outside every once in a while for some exercise and fresh air. A lot of people like to play games like basketball, frisbee or even soccer for their source of exercise. Many may know that I am not a huge fan of competitive sports or sports in general (mainly because I suck and lack coordination). This comic came about while talking with a friend of mine about excuses people give (myself included) when they don't want to join in and play sports and games. And yes, you will most likely be called a poor sport or a wet blanket if you don't join in. Get use to it.

Face to Facebook

Working from a computer all day long makes it easy to waste time on websites such as Facebook and YouTube. Because I frequent Facebook on occasion throughout the day, I've decided to post another comic featuring the popular social networking website (and time waster).

(Disclaimer: This comic relates to no one in particular and does not necessarily represent the views of Lance Fry. Any similarities to people in real life, either in print or in picture, are purely a coincidence. All characters featured are fictional. We also will not be held responsible for any person who becomes offended or blocked as a result of reading this comic).
