6 years ago TODAY…Scairy Tales was born!
For me, the story is legend. I'd been a musician that could no longer find a path musically, so I folded and curled into a ball.
It was suggested I do some doodles for the work Halloween candy bowl. I quickly Sharpied something I enjoyed and thought nothing of it. The art kept getting questions like "is this a comic book?" and "who did THIS?" and so on. Then it was suggested I might try my hand at comics.
After several days of ho-humming around my birthday, I went to Michaels and got my first sketchbook to doodle for fun. I had a fever and was in no mood to do much. Then, an idea came to me...Halloween kids and monsters having comical episodes as they tried to figure the other out. Could be funny.
One idea bled into another and..."Scairy Tales" was born (adding an "i" on purpose to indicate these were FUNNY books not horror). I gathered my best bud Christopher Collins to help me out and we were off for what was intended to be a Facebook web comic.
Then, I got a printer...made 'zines...created a pickle...made 'zines...went to a comic con...and the story just builds to what you see today, 6 years later.
Only SIX years since the inception on a cheap sketchbook to what you see today with STUCK IN MY HEAD. Wow...and the wife is STILL with me...the mind boggles, and appreciates every moment.
THANK YOU everyone for supporting this silly man and his silly ideas. Who knows what will happen from here out but, for now, I can't believe how cool life is.
Most of all...thank you to my wife, Erica. Without her support, NONE of this would have happened.
6-15-16 STUCK IN MY HEAD is %100 COMPLETELY DRAWN!!!
That's right, as of yesterday, I finished the final page of artwork needed for the comic book portion of STUCK IN MY HEAD! There may be an edit here or there once te script is finished but for now, anything and everything planned for the complete book is FINISHED! While I was in Texas at the end of May, I also hit on a surprising element I hadn't counted on originally but came as an awesome surprise that I think really hits this story home. You'll know what The Black Thing is soon enough...
Next up is to tighten the script and letter it to the comic. After that, MUSIC. Many songs are already recorded and just as many have yet to be recorded but I've planned for this. We still have a release date for December 31 2016 at the latest but if I can get things finished before then, IT WILL GET AN EARLY RELEASE!
So, keep the faith and once again, THANK YOU EVERYONE for your support. Now, to continue working on the script final draft!
