If you missed it, I put up a bit of an announcement post the other day that Lined Paper Lamppost, the webcomic I’ve been working on for the past couple of years, will be ending today, but since that decision was a kind of sudden development and the plans to do so weren’t for a long time anticipated, I have a few pages I would like to still share, in varying stages of completion, as well as some of the ideas I had for the webcomic had it stuck around as long as I’d originally intended.

I think it was around the time I completed the first semester of my last year in college that I really began to struggle with what it was I was supposed to do next. My degree in English was and would be wonderful, but the opportunities readily available to me weren’t quite what I had envisioned when I first began. I knew that long before I graduated, but in the months following, when jobs eluded me and the best I could manage was working in a coffee shop, I wrestled with what moment would be “mine”: my first moment of brilliance, my first moment of success, the first moment I might feel as though what I’d worked toward for all of the years prior would come to head and produce before me some sort of…something.

It was at some point during middle school that I got really into the idea of webcomics. It wasn’t the fact that the ones I frequented were all that incredible but rather the idea that someone, anyone, me for instance, could, with any level of artistic ability, create a comic and publish it online that pulled me in completely.

It has finally happened! After over a year of working on this webcomic project, the day has come for it to be released into the world! The link you can go to find it is both right here (at lplthecomic.com) and behind the “Lined Paper Lamppost” link, which you will find in the top menu.
Check it out. Like it, comment on it, reblog it, share it, print it out and mail it by carrier pigeon to your aunt on that island in the south Pacific. It’s going to be a long journey so follow along with me.
As was announced last week, Lined Paper Lamppost was supposed to be launching today, in all of its cartoony, artistic glory. But that didn’t happen.
There were a couple things I didn’t account for when I set that release date a couple of weeks back and, so the comic is at its best when it launches, I’ve had to move the release date back. The fortunate thing about this news is that the push back is really only a nudge–it’s only been moved back a week, so now, the official (and permanent) release date for my webcomic is April 14!
Thank you for your patience, I apologize for the inconvenience, but I’m super excited to get this out there.
So last week I spoke about how my webcomic, Lined Paper Lamppost, came to be: what drove me to create it, some of the struggles I’ve had while creating it, and how excited I am for it to actually be released after so much time being created. Today I want to speak on what it’s all about.
If last week was the “why,” let this week be the “what.” (more…)
If you’ve been in, at least, some way observant toward my blog since it began last August, you will have noticed a lonely page along the top row of links titled, “Lined Paper Lamppost.” And if you were even further observant, enough so to click on the link, read the brief and the little image that sits there, then you would know that “Lined Paper Lamppost” is actually a webcomic that I’ve been working on publishing for a while now. And the exciting news here in regards to that comic is that, if everything goes according to plan, it will be released later this month after over a year of work. (more…)
