Hey look! Over there! No…to the right…up a little…yeah, right above the calender. See?
It’s a new button!
I recently registered Al One on the TopWebcomics.com website. It’s not much, but it is a way to spread word of the comic around. And spreading word of the comic means that more people will come to read it. And more people coming to read it means that more people may click on ads. And more ads means more money. And more money means more snacks! And more snacks means sugar rush! And more sugar rush means I’ll need to draw more to burn off the excess calories! And more drawing leads to more comics!
So what I’m saying is I like snacks, so, click, vote, spread the word.
I’m not sure it’s really possible for me to state the influence Leonard Nimoy had on me. I never really watched the original series on TV, but I did see all the movies, the next generation, and a couple of the other series.
But while he was’t a direct influence, he definitely influenced the people who influenced me. He lived long and prospered, and for that I am, and will be, forever grateful.

Yesterday I stepped foot inside a class room, as a student, for the first time in about 6 years. Since I’m almost twice as old as the rest of the students in the class, it’s a bit of a surreal experience. I’ve already got a job in IT and am pretty well settled, so that means I get to take a different approach then the rest of my classmates. While they’re looking to graduate and get degrees, I’m simply there because ‘I want to’. Granted, I’m taking the course for credit and may even turn it into an Art degree, it’s still a different feeling. There’s not as much pressure on me and I believe that will help me overall.
So, hopefully soon you readers will see the effects of ‘Introduction to Figure Drawing’. This will be the first class I’ve taken that focuses drawing the human body. I’m looking forward to it and what changes it will make to the comic….so here’s to good things coming 🙂
Hi all and thank you for reading Al One!
This project has been bouncing around in my head for a couple of years now and I’m
really, really glad to finally get it out for everyone to read. As this is only my
second comic strip, I’m sure there will be mistakes along the way, but you can’t get
better without learning what not to do!
Unlike my previous comic (The Principal is an Alien), this is more of a long form
‘graphic novel’ style strip. It will be told in chapters, each (for the most part)
a seperate story. Think of these as James Bond movies: same characters, new
For the time being I’ll work on posting a page every Wednesday. Hopefully in the
future I can do more then one posting a week, but I’d rather focus on quality over
quantity for now.
If you enjoy the strip, follow the RSS feed, share on Facebook/Google+, and retweet
to your hearts content. For more updates, follow me on Twitter, where I’ll
occasionally post sneak peaks or commentary on upcoming pages.
Again, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy!
