yeah, so like, this 'Devoid' thing. Like, what is it, right?
Well, as I've stated in the first page information, this story is something I've been kicking around since I was in god dang highschool. So, before 2007 (graduating year!!), this thing's ancient. Granted, the concepts aren't FROM high school, the whole work has evolved and changed over time as I grew older myself, but the point being... I've technically been working on this thing for nearly a decade. And maybe I have! Time moves so quickly the older I get, I wouldn't be surprised, really.
So, what, why is this important, why a journal about it? Well... I don't know for sure? I think i want to just stress that this work -is- important to me, and I -hope- folks out there will be able to take something away from the story I have to tell, and will be able to enjoy it as the story progresses. I'm basically doing what I can to ensure that this is a constant commitment, and the more people I reach out to, who will undoubtedly be expecting more and more as time moves on, the more obligation I, the creator, will have to stay on track, stick to my deadlines, and make sure that things don't just come to a standstill. How could I, after all, if I have people waiting on me to see what happens next?
I guess that's kind of my point. the more attention I draw to it, the less of an excuse I'll have to stay my hand and get sidetracked from this whole bit -yet again-. As some of my closer friends know, I've been juggling and kicking this thing around for way too long, and I have every intention of telling the story.
It may be far from perfect, and my writing may not measure up in the beginning, but honestly, it's a project I truly care about, so I can only hope that this helps the production shine.
I'm going out of town, from the 10th to the 15th, but rest assured, I have every intention of making a weekly update to the comic. I eventually want to get a proper webpage set aside for it too, so it's not just stuck on my art galleries and Tumblr page.
I'm currently running a poll over here on my twitter: The end result after my vacation ends will basically be the schedule I try to shoot for. So far, Friday's winning, but there's still time in case some o' you with a case o' the Mondays want a different schedule for this thing. -> twitter.com/tonycaline/status/…
I guess that's it! If you have any questions about the comic, the story, anything, please feel free to ask away. Granted, there's not much here -yet- to warrant a lot of questions, but in due time, I'm sure.
I want to do this thing justice, and I hope that will show in time.
Thank you guys!!
