That is all.


The Future of Sorrel and Artichoke

Posted in Sorrel and Artichoke on June 2, 2010 by Davie

From now on, I’m hosting The Omniscient Orb and all subsequent episodes on Webcomics Nation.  Hopefully, this will bring in more readers and provide a slightly better format.  Here’s the homepage, and look, page 5 is up!

More fail.

My computer’s up and running again, but Manga Studio needs to be reinstalled.  A friend borrowed my copy, and I can’t exactly do the comic without it.  Hopefully I should have it back by next Friday, and I’ll be back on the regular update schedule.  In the meantime, I should be able to put up a couple pieces of unrelated work this week.

Aaand here it is!  Mostly on time, which amazes me.

The Omniscient Orb: Pages 1-3

Here are the first three pages of the comic.  I’ll be trying to follow a Tuesday-Thursday release schedule for these things.  If the comic actually brings me some traffic–an event which is extremely unlikely but fortunately not quite statistically impossible–I might give it its own site.  But that’s probably horribly optimistic of me.

Announcing the Omniscient Orb!

Posted in Sorrel and Artichoke on April 27, 2010 by Davie

Recently, I realized much of the reason so few of my projects get finished is the fact that I spend months meticulously planning and drawing concept pages and the like, and by the time I actually get started, I’m sick of it and don’t want to continue.  Last night, I decided to remedy that.

I decided to start a new comic.  Not start thinking about a new comic, or draw a few concepts to be used in a new comic at a later date, but get my ass in gear and actually produce something immediately.  The results have been a little crazy–the artwork is rough and scribbly and the story, which I’m making up as I go along, is kind of insane and over-the-top.  However, that’s the best part.  I’ve started something that I’m genuinely having fun making, and as such will almost certainly get finished.  If I can keep up with my current rate of production, I’ll be able to post a couple pages a week up on this site.

A brief introduction:  Sorrel is a laid-back fellow who works in The Squeaky Spoon Aerial Public House, an airborne tavern.  He’s a self-titled “booze wizard” who uses magic to speed-ferment the pub’s alcohol, earning him steady pay from the proprietor, who is quite thankful to Sorrel for speeding up production.  Sorrel is disinterested in adventure and excitement, and reminds everyone that he only wears a sleeveless leather trenchcoat because it looks cool, not because he’s a badass.  Unfortunately for him, he’s drafted into the service of Artichoke, a hardassed mercenary with a giant shotgun, who is convinced that Sorrel is an incredibly powerful wizard who is more than capable of helping her out.  Artichoke’s been paid by an unknown benefactor to find the mysterious Omniscient Orb, and she’s perfectly happy to beat the hell out of anyone and anything that stands in her way of finding it.  Actually, she’s perfectly happy to beat the hell out of anyone and anything, period.

The first page or two will go up on Thursday.
