Sorry for the lack of updates, but things have been busy at work and at home. In addition to work and the strip, I have been trying to get the new site, chippyandloopus.com up and running. I have secured the domain name, I've installed Wordpress and ComicPress, but haven't been able to figure out how to make it work or how to make it look the way I want it to look. This has been remarkably frustrating, but I have sought out the help of the great Tyler Martin, the very man who created ComicPress in the first place, so I am confident that we'll get this thing working soon. Until then, I'll keep posting here.
In other news, I've been working on some pieces on for an art auction we're having here at Pixar. One of the pieces is a Chippy and Loopus page from May 8, 2007. Why that page you ask? Well, it was one of my favorites and it was one of the few things I've done that was not massively tweaked and comped in Photoshop.
This worries me. You see, one day, when the audience of this strip grows and I have a website with a store that sells t-shirts and coffee mugs (it's coming), I may also want to offer original art. However, I can't do that if no real original exists now can I? This has made me re-examine yet again how I work. In the future, I will be putting forth more effort to get it right on the page, so that all I do in PS is lettering.
Anyway, thanks for your patience. I'll be back with a strip this weekend.
