UPDATE – NO MEETING WEDNESDAY AND LATE WORK!!!!

Hello Fellow Holmesians,

First up,

There will be NO MEETING WEDNESDAY.  Ty is unavailable.

So this week is all about final homework and promo and me getting our first issue on to the digital sites for a soft Holmes Inc. digital launch.

The following week, JUNE 22, will be a full meeting where we will show off all the finished artwork and plan distribution.

We will also have a special guest. The guys from Electric Playground will be filming us for a piece on the Cartoonist Workshop and Holmes Inc.! So remember to comb your hair!

Okay, now let’s talk production

We are still waiting on several bits and pieces to come in for production. Keiren is already asking me for things I haven’t got!  We are also falling behind on our promo website posting, though the web crew is adapting for that right now, as best they can.

I apologize to anyone who I haven’t gotten back to promptly. There is so much to juggle between production and promotion I have been unable to keep track of it all.

I do think I should warn anyone with outstanding work that we are fast approaching the cut-off point for stories making it into the comic. So we really need to focus and get things in.

With that in mind, here is an update for one and all.

RE: WEBSITE TUTORIALS/POSTS

We need your student tutorials as post for the website. Remember to keep them short and focused on Holmes Inc. Don’t be afraid to introduce your own work a bit as well and link to it. You should also provide the artwork and let us know where to insert it. If you need Holmes Inc. artwork you don’t have access , let us know.

 

So far we have received:

JAMES – Choosing an opening image

KATHLEEN – Writing Character Voices

CHRISTOPHER – Layout to final page

MIKE- Story Maps

 

That means we are still waiting on:

 

TY –  A discussion of inking.

ROB – Interpreting a script (Shame on me for setting a bad example)

SAM – How to write visually

DAWNSON – Adding tone to tell the story

VINCE – Dealing with deadlines (How appropriate at crunch time!)

GRANT – Designing a character.

AARON – Writing other people’s characters (established characters)

RAE – The evolution of a page

MARSHALL – Taking direction

PIERCE – Washes

GIBSON – Pacing for layouts

 

DARIUS, DANIEL and DINO… Please get back to us with your topics and get writing!

DANNY and RAIN – We can focus on tutorials after your stories are in. Danny is in touch wth me but I need to hear from you Rain, ASAP.

 

RE: WEBSITE BIOS

Anyone who have not submitted a bio, links, contact info and picture or caricature for the site, please get that to James and I ASAP.

 

RE: PIN-UPS

Not all artists have come forward with pin-ups but those that are please get them to us so we can post them and brag all about ya!

Again, the process is to submit three potential designs for Ty to choose from. Once he pulls the trigger, get drawing!!!

 

RE: TWITTER

We have passed two hundred followers and are building more every day. Anyone willing to help out with the Twitter thing please conatct James. He is overseeing that.

Thanks Sam, Marshall, Kathleen and Mike for stepping up to help. (And anyone I missed)

 

RE: DIGITAL RELEASE

We have had terrific response from Digital sites so far. We will likely be on at least five or six platforms but I will try to add more to that. The more the merrier, right?

I should have plenty of news by the meeting a week from Wednesday. See you then. Stay in touch. And get back to work! 🙂
