Jacob is a very shy boy who lives a fairly quiet life. But one day, a family moves in next door to him. The oldest daughter, Kaylee, is a very kind and optimistic girl who is the same age as him.... and to his surprise, she is also his old best childhood friend! It's been eight years since they have last seen eachother, but after Kaylee's return, his life is never the same.
This is my first comic and I'm always experimenting with new techniques and keep trying to improve, so constructive criticism is always welcome. I'm also in the process of redoing the comic and replacing the old pages. So if you're wondering why my style has changed after a few pages, that's why! Other than that, I hope you enjoy the story!
Although I haven't posted any new pages in.. uh.. 5 months, if you look back at mid chapter 3, you'll see those pages are finished. I'm pretty happy how they turned out. For those who don't know, back in 2010 we had what was called "March Madness" where a page was drawn everyday for the month of March. The result: I had 31 very rushed pages. I had a week off mid September which allowed me to get all of them finished inked, as well as many other older pages. So new pages will still be a while.
Work is going okay, I am officially in HR and no longer in customer service. I'm sort of still doing the graphic design intern thing too. My supervisor is great and I like the people in my department. It's A LOT to learn, but it's fast paced and never a dull moment. I will be getting my annual review hopefully Tuesday, it should go well (and hoping for a nice raise!) *fingers crossed*
It is official, I am going to Disney World next year with my bestie BakaMonMon! We'll be going the week before Halloween in 2014. I may start doing commissions to try and save more.
We are also going to be doing a panel at Kotoricon 2014 on webcomics. This is the first time doing something like this, so I'm kind of scared >< but I think BakaMonMon and I make a great team so it should go good. We're still waiting to see if we got our tables approved, but I will let you guys know. :D
Hi everyone! A lot has been going on lately as you may have guessed from lack of updates. I haven't really had the motivation to sit and draw lately. One reason is because I just started an internship earlier this month as a graphic designer at my place. There were a lot of ups and downs... but either way, I'm still there and it'll be something to put on my resume. It's a bit of an odd situation because I'm actually working with Human Resources helping to design some flyers and some pages on their website. The graphics department is in another building which I go to everyday for a couple of hours in the afternoon. I'm also doing some odd jobs here and there for HR and now helping the benefits department. It's a lot of running around and being trained to do everything. By the end of the day I'm completely drained. I'm just doing this to get experience and if I don't get the position, I can start job hunting for something better.
In a couple of weeks I will be at Intervention Con again this year, so come visit me! I will probably have nothing much new, but I'm excited! :DD
Next month I have a week vacation (FINALLY!!!) hopefully I can get some work on the comic done!
If you've been visiting the OTBS site (or maybe reading through the comic) you probably noticed things changing and moving around each time the page refreshes. I'm still going to be messing around with it, so don't worry, you're not going crazy. I'm just indecisive. :)
So far I will be at 2 conventions, I will be at T-MODE April 19- 21 sharing a table with BakaMonMon and we'll also be at Intervention Con August 23-25. So mark your schedules and come visit! :3
P.S. And yes I did change the little voting Jacob heads too.
Yup, so I found a new chat box and it is now on the site! The old one was no longer free, so of course I couldn't keep it. Hopefully this one will last longer and works okay :)
I got accepted to Intervention Con, which again I will be at along with BakaMonMon. I will be better prepared for this convention, so all I have to do now is show up, which I believe is the end of September. More details later when I'm not too lazy to look at my calendar. But I cannot wait, it'll be so much fun!
Also, I am working on the OTBS shop, because Zazzle isn't really doing anything for me. So far I will be selling bookmarks and buttons that I have made, and maybe throw in something a little extra with every purchase. ;D As soon as I can get paypal all worked out, I'll let you all know.
Kotoricon is coming up quickly, a little over a week away! I'm really busy preparing, so updates will be on hold until the convention is over. It's one day only, on January 7th at the Gloucester County College (my college!) and I'm really excited that it's so close to home! :D Hope to see some of you there!
Hi everybody! I had a bit of time to spare, and decided to make some changes to the comic. Right now I'm in the process of combining chapters, since the first chapters are 10-15 pages long, and this last one is over 50. I want them to be a more consistent length and I'm also redrawing the old chapter covers. So any updates will be a false alarm... don't want to get your hopes up! And also don't want to confuse anyone when you see you're reading chapter 4 instead of chapter 7. Thank you for your patience everyone! ^u^
Hey guys, the next couple of weeks I'll be getting more hours at my job working full-time, and with exams and projects coming up as well, I will not have time to update. I'm thinking mid November I should be back on schedule, but I'll keep you posted. :)
Unfortunately I will probably not be posting new pages at least until the end of September. But it doesn't mean I'm putting this comic aside! I am still preparing for intervention which is only a couple of weeks away and making some pretty OTBS prints, keychains and other things. Along with racing to get ready for Intervention, I start school in about a week or two, and I also start a new job Friday! :D I'll be working in an office environment, it's pretty close to home, so I'm really excited! Time to dust off my business casual wear from a few years ago X3
So I'm sorry for not keeping up with replying to everyone and for the lack of new OTBS pages, while you're waiting, you can watch me on deviantArt or follow me on tumblr since I'll be updating on those sites more often. :3
