I’M NOT DEAD!..an Update (Announcements)

im not dead

Happy Tuesday!

Alright folks, this is a post that has been a long time coming for many reasons (most of which I will cover here, the rest are covered in my patron page version of this..hahaha I’m sorry I can’t take my self that seriously, no one would pay me…or would you?(1).

Look I won’t shit my self(2): I haven’t been very good at posting lately.  I haven’t posted much since I left the UK.  A lot has changed. Regardless I’ll fill you in on what’s been going on in my personal/professional life since the last post.

My family life is going better than it ever has but there’s not much to say there other than: my kid turned 9, my girlfriend and boyfriend both had a birthday, and I’ve finally gotten back in touch with my best friend for the first time since his birthday (six months prior). MOVING ON.

What has been really eating up my time is both the event of my girlfriend giving me her old Galaxy Note 4, which has a VERY powerful drawing app (sketchbook) and working on freelance writing gigs.

If you like my comics please follow me at my instagram page “fin.louie”. I sent my comic portfolio to a local publication, The River Front Times (the RFT in St Louis) and I’m hoping they pick me up but if not I have a hashtag campaign to make sure they know what they’re rejecting.

Aside from my comics I’ve been working on short stories for publication, one of which I think I have a winner for publication. It’s titled…hahaha sorry can’t reveal any details until it’s bought. Soz but me being “in control of sensitive information” is probably the closest I’ll get to being a CIA agent or something.

To my American readers: at least I never cost you 900.000$

Also I’m getting through my novel and I began the Dresden Files audiobooks.  I plan to make small 500 word “impressions” of each book as I work my way through.

So fucking accurate.

When my short stories get published (operative word: WHEN) I’ll re-post them here.  I am actively working to find a place to post my content under “www.offbeatonpoint.com” for less than 10$ a year (3) but if not I will continue to post online in plenty of places.

What to Expect:

I don’t know.  I plan to post “impressions” (like 500 words or less) of the Dresden Files because I’ve read several  of these books out of order (like 6), when I’m normally an order freak but this series is an exception, My friend Evan got me to read the, currently, newest book “Skin Game” as my first Dresden Files book and I was hooked.

I have been playing with the idea of  doing reviews of “play novels” because I found this nice website indiedb.com but that’s just a fragment of an idea.

Either way don’t expect much from me in the coming months except web comics. And also maybe a birthday post or something.  I turn 30 next month.

Footnotes:

  1. I’m an asshole. Sorry I don’t have any actual patreon content but if you wanna give me money because you’ve liked my work thus far and want to see more I’m okay with that. I just have a hard time with the concept of having content behind a “pay wall” ie content you have to pay for to view.  It makes me a bad business man but a good anarchist punk ie THE STRUGGLE IS FUCKING REAL!
  2. Unless I’ve drank too much.
  3. WordPress pretty much hates me, I’m guessing its because I am winning too hard.

Date Night (NSFW comic)

Happy Friday!

20171117_092034-1

Remember the girl holding Fin’s hand in the Friday the 13th Special? Let me present the newest character in the cast: Lady Sugar Skull – sweet as she is strange but no less deadly.  I have a story arc staring her and Fin in one of the dark and secretive corners of the OBOP multiverse coming up in a few months. I’m going somewhere with the “Count Rubber’s Keep” arc (I’m assured by the voice in my head that gives me all my ideas), which will tie into the next story arc (which I’m keeping under golden-flaky layers [hint] because spoilers) which will have a rather grim [hint] and dramatic climax leading directly into the Lady Sugar Skull arc.  I’ll be honest, I have no idea what’s going to happen after the Lady Sugar Skull arc but I do know Fin won’t be quite the same afterwards.

Hope everyone who has date night tonight doesn’t encounter commutation mishaps unless they’re awkward AND funny.

My Monday posting will be tentative because I’m getting some stuff sorted out around the hose and I’m trying to get some personal shit.  Nothing overly exciting but it’s been time exhausting.  No complaints but nothing to write about either.  I’m about to finish The Rum Diary by the last great hero in American Journalism Hunter S Thompson and I believe that will be the next book I write about.  The novel has hit a lot of personal chords and I feel like I’ll have some interesting things to say about it.  I have also been listening to Streetlight Manifesto’s album The Hands that Thieve on near constant repeat the last few weeks and I may write something about that one of these Mondays as it’s a piece that has similarly captured a particular zeitgeist in my life that should has been the ticket for some entertaining trains of thought.

Will be back eventually (probably “somewhat sooner” than “way later”),

Is this place bigger on the inside than out? (The Adventures of Fin and Louie)

Happy Friday!

20 oct-1
The adventure continues…

Lost? Catch up on the story so far with these comics:

“…meanwhile”

“WANTED: Fin and Louie”

“Welcome to Count Rubber’s Keep”

I plan to rework the site a bit soon to reflect the changes in posting schedules and frequencies which will include a central location for The Adventures of Fin and Louie.  I’ll probably title it some thing kinda stupidly self-referential like “The story so far…”

Tune in Monday for the weekly Mystery!
