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”),
Phase 1 complete, Phase 2: Framing (pictures to come)
Happy Halloween from us at Offbeat Onpoint! Have a safe and wonderful holiday.
I’m making a Halloween present for my favourite little dude. What do you think? I’m pretty happy with how the wooden handle texture looks on the axe personally but what do you think? Feel free to leave a comment below or share if you liked.
FYI I will be taking Monday off but I will be posting my first St Louis Shines interview with an incredibly interesting and entertaining man, Lucian Storm. Check back in on Halloween for the full interview.
The adventure continues…
Lost? Catch up on the story so far with these comics:
“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!
As I mentioned earlier this week there are some really excellent bands putting on shows this weekend and in celebration of Friday the 13th I made a comic for the band playing tonight with an extra surprise…
First comic I’m using coloured pencils versus markers and I’m pretty happy with the results.
If you see me out tonight or tomorrow night, feel free to say “hi” (it’d help if you explained where you recognise me from, just sayin’).
Tune in Monday for the weekly Mystery (I think it might be a book review, but there’s the mystery: WHAT BOOK?!)
I’m going to continue the Adventures of Fin and Louie a couple times a month or so. This is a continuation from the comic “… meanwhile”.
Some day I will get a real set of colouring makers but I’ll always have a soft spot for my WHS marker set.
Tune in Monday for the weekly mystery.
