Hey everyone!

Just a quick little announcement: I have started a general-subject blog here. It will be more for general thoughts and discussions and, hence, it will be kept apart from the main TWDC Studios site. You can RSS or sign up for updates by e-mail separately for both sites.

You can always access the blog from the “Jeff’s Blog” menu tab above.

To be honest, the tools available to your independent comic artist have changed since the last time I drew comics (back in 2003). So I have been spending some time familiarizing myself with them. After much trial and tribulation, I think I’ve got the hang of some of them, and decided to dive into the SIMON web-comic.

As a special treat to you, I am giving you a sneak preview of the first page today! But, first, a short disclaimer: This web-comic has the dimensions of 5″ x 7.5″ (12.7cm x 19.5cm), which is a common format that you’ll see Japanese manga published in. Also, this comic is not going to be in color. Instead, I am using a shading technique using screen-tones, which uses little dots of varying sizes to fool the eye into seeing shades of gray.

And so, without any further ado…
