Every. Sound. Guy. Ever.
(except, of course, for Howie, who was nice enough to give me these impressive sounding equipment names. Thanks for the ammunition, Howie!)
But seriously, cover band sound guys… get your shit together.
My apologies for the lack of updates (comics or otherwise)!
The short story:
I’ve been darn busy and will be back with more comics Monday!
The long story:
I’ve been on tour with the Jazz Ambassadors, which usually allows more time for making comics, but I took on a few too many work & personal projects at once and topped that with planning and preparation for a wedding date that is fast approaching. Oh! and I almost forgot about the super fun computer troubles I had while converting from Mac to PC on the road with no connection to the outside world save for some mind-numbingly-slow hotel internet. On tippie-top of all that, my drawing tablet was downright refusing to cooperate which led to some ulcer-inducing angry times.
While that accounts for much of my inactivity, the other truth of it is that I just lost momentum. Since launching Musicomic.com, I’ve kept a mostly consistent schedule of 2-3 comics per week. This required enough of a daily commitment that I didn’t have time to “stop and think” about my schedule. I just kept moving forward.
So, while the reasons I lost that momentum are, in my mind, legitimate, the reason(s) I haven’t regained it in the time that I’ve been back are less so…
Procrastination. Laziness. Excuses. Video games. etc. etc.
I only say all of this because I’m sure many of you, especially the musicians among you, have dealt with this same loss of momentum at some point in your life. If you’re anything like me, knowing that others encounter the same self-imposed hurdles and obstacles helps to understand and overcome your own.
So, here we go…
The official Musicomic Store has launched!
Our first product is the super hip Miles Davis sticker based on musicomic 30 – Miles.
If buying a one of a kind music sticker isn’t motivation enough for your discerning tastes, consider this;
Musicomics take from 30sec-4hrs to write, 3-6hrs to draw, 5 seconds to read and are posted for free, here on Musicomic.com. By purchasing an item from the store, you are directly supporting the continued production of more comics and more merchandise!
Plus, they’re only $4 including shipping, handling, and tax! ($5 shipping on international orders)
So, head on over to MusicomicStore.com and grab some melodious merch!
Here’s a PREVIEW of the new project I’ve mentioned a couple of times on here that I’m creating with Phillip K. Johnson.
I was hoping to have it posted
last week today, but it’s taking me a lot longer to finish than expected… plus, I’m ill.
I could probably spend the rest of the day rushing through it and post it late this evening, but I’d rather wait patiently one last time and do it right.
It will go up on Monday.
On another note, I have to thank you all again for your support. Musicomic.com launched less than two months ago and the response I’ve seen here has really been humbling. I haven’t done any advertising or marketing. I post the comic here and mention it on Facebook, Tumblr, & Twitter. After that, my “reach” is defined by you, the readers, sharing and spreading the word about the comic.
Lastly, more and more of you have been asking about musicomic merchandise and I promise you; it’s on the way. I’m trying to do as much research as possible before diving into this thing. Most importantly, I really want to put out high quality products that you are as excited to own as I am. I’m not willing to put out an awesome t-shirt design on a cheap shirt that immediatly falls apart or fades.
So, as excited as I am to have a freaking MUSICOMIC STORE… I want to do it right.
