New Year, New Site

“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Everything I’ve done in my career stemmed from the love of drawing stories. It is a specific passion. I don’t draw still lifes, landscapes or portraits. I’m only interested in sequential images. It has led me to art school, to Disney, to storyboarding, writing and directing movies. Now it’s taken me into software development, and I often find myself asking: “How did this happen? Can’t I just work in an established medium like film or comics? Is it necessary to invent a new one?”

The answer is apparently “yes”.

Although these side trips are distractions from the serious business of creating stories I still put in time at the drawing board every day (Christmas and New Year included).

This site has been redesigned and will serve to inform people on the progress of my original projects.  Seven Extraordinary Things is still available at www.sevenextraordinarythings.com (new readers to that story should click here). Other stories like The Curious Saga of No-One and The Girl in the Moon will be available on www.scrollon.com, currently under construction and scheduled to launch by March, 2012 (and incorporating my shiny new software).

More stories are on their way.  Below is a glimpse of a few things currently on my drawing board.

  1. Will scrollon target mobile devices? That’s where the future is. Tradtional comic publishers are already trying to move to tablets. They see the writing on the wall as paper goes obsolete.

  2. I have followed your work for quite a while. I have been entranced by your stories including SEOT, and anticipating the continuation of No-One and the other new stories you have planned, but it has been a while since an update.
    When do you plan on posting any new updates. Your blog has been void of that info. Also, ScrollOn does not seem to work, at least for me on my PC.

    1. Apologies for the long delay in replying to your comment. I have been neglecting my websites to concentrate on developing a Scrollon App, and creating new content in the Scrollon format. This format works best on touchscreen devices, such as tablets and smartphones. I am focusing on those markets for now, but I believe all our computers will soon have touch interface, and probably all our computers will be tablets. I greatly appreciate those who have been patient with me, especially people like you who have been following since the days of Seven Extraordinary Things.
