      It is official! I have finally started my own comic strip! The best part is that a fellow cartoonist offered me space on his website to call my own... My own spot on an independent website!

      mindmeldcomics.com/index.php?p=gallery&do=vi...

      Do not run! Do not walk! Fly!

      ...

      Go on! Go check the strip out and tell me what you think! I don't have a personalized section on the site yet so he just threw it in with his strips... but all in good time! ^_^

      At the start of November I came to the decision that I wanted to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a cartoonist... in the full sense of the word; not a journal cartoonist or one panel tablet doodles, but a real cartoonist. It was easy to start accomplishing this goal after my employer let me go a day later... So, after becoming unemployed, I buoyed my spirits and picked up the pencil and started from scratch. I began studying new techniques and it has been a full on trial and error process, but I am learning so much!

      They say that the first thing you need when writing is a great title. If I was to come up with a title, based on my life as a whole, there is only one word that comes to mind...

      How have you been Rooster Teeth? I've been gone for only three years and the whole site has changed. Of course the people are still the same... people never changed. I'm still the same as I was when I last logged in all those years ago. I'm still drawing, gaming, and being all sorts of crazy. I've missed this site... I've missed all you fine people... and I've just missed a lot of things in my life. I'm just glad to be back...

      its hard...

      ...

      Work is starting to take its toll on me... I can't stand people who will stand in front of the cash register, swearing up and down, demanding to see a manager, and when told that I am the manager they wanna speak to a higher up... and this whole thing started exactly like this:

      "Is there anything I can help you find today?"

      "Yeah, um, I need that TMNT game for the 360..."

      "Oh, I'm sorry man we are all sold out of it at the moment."

      "But the sign in the window says its avaliable now..."

      "Well, yes, the game is out, but we're all sold out in this store at the momen..."

      "Listen, son. You've got the sign up in the window and it says you've got a copy avaliable."

      "No, the sign is just there to let all our customers know that the game is..."

      "Well that is false f*@&%#g advertising and I want a god-d@#& right now."

      "Sorry man... I can't give you what I don't have!"

      "It says its avaliable! Are you a f@&#$%g moron?!"

      "Who cares what the sign says!? I'm telling you that we don't have any copies! Now please move so I can help a customer who has a game request that is avaliable to her!"

      "I wanna speak with the manager right now damn it!"

      "Sure... (very friendly) How may I help you?"

      "You're an asshole and I'm gonna make sure that your ass gets fired and you'll never work again with the hellfire I'm gonna bring down..."

      "I'll be sure to bring an umbrella sir... Next?"

      ...

      I've worked for the GameStop company for a year now... crazy, huh? Yet, at first glance it looks as though I've accomplished nothing in that year... I haven't moved up in stature and I'm still doing the same tasks that I was taking care of this same time last year... however, you haven't seen it the way I see it...

      ...

      Within this past year I have done the following:

      Bought a new car

      Customized that car

      Bought a 360

      Bought games for that 360

      Bought another year of Xbox Live to play the games for that 360

      Was crowned Halo 2 champion of Central Illinois

      Bought a Wii

      Bought tons of DVD box sets

      Sold some of my artwork (Thanks Wolfwood618)

      and... (most importantly)

      Met the girl of my life

      ...

      I'd say that's a pretty good year... wouldn't you say?

      Thanks for helping make it a great year guys... I'll talk to you all later...

      Amanda was over at my house watching a movie with me, and when she left, her scent was still on my pillow...

      ...

      My god... I couldn't get to sleep! It drove me mad! I wanted to call her up and hear her voice and put a ring on her finger and have kids...

      ...

      Whoa... I mean... errr... ummmm...

      ...

      the smell was nice... it was a beautiful reminder of her... lets just leave it at that...

    • CJ and Amanda: Master's of their Destiny

      Now I know that I said that I was gonna start up my own website a few months back, but I didn't have to personal motivation to do so... Now, the tides have changed...

      Amanda and I are planning to spend the rest of our lives together. Why not work together as well? Amanda and I have been talking about doing a web comic together. However, we don't know if we will be able to get fan support from the web, so I decided to ask all of you, my Red vs Blue friends, what you think of the idea? Amanda and I have a perfect idea for storyline and gags, but once again, we don't know how an online audience will accept us...

      I have an early example of what the strip would look and feel like, drawn by my most favorite girl in the world...

      amandascjandamandachibicf1.jpg

      ...

      Please let me know what you guys think and please, if there is ever a time that I need you to do this its now, but pass this journal link around to gather more support. Amanda and I are excited about this project and we want to get others excited about it as well... Just know that Amanda and I would be main characters, but we're always open to cameo appearances by fans, friends, and family, and we will have plenty of video game, anime, comic book, and nerd humor to go around...

      Hope to hear from many of you very soon...

        Right? No, I'm pretty much pro at being lazy. I think if it were an olympic sport, I'd metal in it.

        Hello to you as well! ^_^ No one usually likes to admit that they are lazy! I find the process to be a little underrated. It is a lost art... lol

    • Wolfwood618

      9 years ago

      Hey. I REALLY appreciate the gesture. I'd definitely be willing to pay the 50 for it. Just wondering how long will it take you to do? Because I just got back to school from winter break and I have a job here, but I get paid bi-weekly and I'm getting my first check since december this friday, so thinking about the way I save money I'll definitely be able to throw the commission your way at the end of the month. Thanks again. This thing is going on my wall in my house next year :).

      Your next awesome drawing should be like your Shadow one, only of Silver the Hedgehog. That would be cool. Oh, and my last comment still stands for your other sig.
