Hey all! Just an update on book three of YOU CAN RELY ON PLATYPI – I'm still working on making this the best issue so far. I've been a little sidetracked with the Crow in the Hollow and freelance work of late, but I'm really starting to get some good pages going. I'm about half way through with the blue line drawings, and then it's on to inking.
Making a comic all by yourself (plotting, writing, drawing, inking, and designing) is A LOT of work, but it's incredibly rewarding as well. It's like making a movie where you have no budget restrictions! :) So,for those that are awaiting the next installment, I appreciate your patience and rest assured that you won't be disappointed.
Here's a quick PLATYPI Fact:
Iggy was inspired by a lot of things I loved as a kid – Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Howard the Duck, The Adventures of Tintin, Babar, and even his coat is inspired by Marty McFly's from Back to the Future. The fact of the matter is that he represents a part of me as well – the part that is boundlessly optimistic and believes in the amazing. Conversely, Jay Jones also represents a part of me - the part that really thinks through everything but can doubt it's self and it's on abilities. Throughout their adventures , Iggy and Jay will teach each other a lot, and become not only great friends, but also a really effective team.
