Subject: Plok comic strip
I've spent a pleasant Sunday morning pencilling a cover design for a Plok comic strip ebook.
Our plan is to put out Volume 1 of the comic strip as an ebook (episodes 1 to 26), with a few little extras and some bits of exclusive content. The actual strips will still remain readable on the website.
I've had fun working out how to build fixed-layout ebooks (basically a simple website, with a few fussy rules and typical compatibility problems between different devices), but I don't think I'll bother trying to incorporate panel-by-panel reading, as each strip is perfectly readable on a page, even on my old Kindle, and I don't think such a simple layout really needs zooming into each panel.
I don't often draw anything at A3 size, so it was also fun to spread out a bit on the page when drawing this. The title of the volume - AWAKE! - will be moved to the bottom, below the feet, then the Plok The Exploding Man logo will fill the top half of the page.
Would putting this out make me a published comic artist?
