Day before the second biweekly installment of Kid Amnesia, anyone who wants to know more about the creative duo behind this re-imagining of the Forgetful Hero may find additional information in the About page. Link is right there at the top of the Home Page. Go on, we can wait.
And make sure to come back tomorrow and see Amnesia go to the ZOO!
New Amnesia (being made)
I will not show you the new episodes of Amneisa (the old one) but I will show you everything else.
When I draw the comic I like to have a piece of paper to sketch the action, character positions etc. Some of those papers "stick around" for couple of weeks while I finish five or more pages. Yesterday I filled the last inch of free space on one and I decided to show it to you.
Amnesia isn't complicated as a character and there is no need to make detailed sketches of page layout. What makes it tricky is the punchline of the joke. That has to be placed at precise place and it should depict the precise moment in time (action). Among all these quick sketches lie the page layout ideas. Some have stick-man figures, some not even those.
Now, where does all this magic take place? Here's a photo of my drawing table with new episodes being drawn. You see the paper under the black marker pen? That's the one I was talking about (the photo is one episode "old").
Very first sketch for the 4-6 one-image-per-page comic I will be making with my friend Zoe Haracic based on the short story by Edis Livnjak.
How about I post some drawings I made
Two pages comic from 4hrs long comic workshop
A comic sketch for a newspaper from Serbia (I didn't get that job either)
Kid AMNESIA, a first time look at how it was to live as a forgetful child before becoming a super-hero. Influenced heavily by many newspaper comic strips of the past (and we can't wait to hear from you when you come across our rip-offs), this story of an ordinary day-to-day life of a slightly extraordinary boy will make you laugh, cry-out with outrage and maybe even feel sad a little.
The first run will consist of two comic strips every two weeks (or so) and will fill in for the super-hero Amnesia until he's ready to return from hiatus. We will try to get them out to you every other Thursday but make sure to sign-up to our RSS feed or follow us on Twitter just so that you don't miss out on anything.
In the end, I really do hope you enjoy these stories as much as we enjoyed creating them.
