Congratulations… it’s a psychotic girl!!

It’s here. Finally the day has come where you, *points towards computer screen* the people, our friends, family, random internet browsers redirected to this page due to the keyword ‘girl’ in the title (I’m not judging) finally get to visually experience what we’ve been babbling about for a few months on this BLOG and for the last 3+ years in person. (Holy run-on sentence Batman!)

As everyone knows, that is if you’ve been reading the BLOG, Vince Sunico of SPENT PENCILS has accepted the assignment of bringing the QWIXOTIC Universe to life for us. Last week he got back to us with a visualization of our lead character, our girl… QWYNN. And here she is– *sniff—  Sorry, it’s an emotional moment.

It’s amazing how, what we saw in our heads for the last 3 years, was visualized and put onto paper so perfectly by Vince. Granted we gave him insane details (some might say over-kill) but at the end of the day it was exactly how we pictured her (give or take a few inches of hair length.)

Keep in mind these are rough sketches, the final look may change but over all an amazing start for QWIXOTIC. At this rate, the first issue should be online in just a few months. We’ll be working closely with Vince on other art details. Make sure you leave your feedback to Qwynn’s look in this post— what you like, what you hate, etc– and subscribe to the BLOG at the bottom of this page for more updates on sketches, artwork and other progress… or else!

Now excuse me while I go get some “It’s A Girl” balloons and a cigar to celebrate this day.

Get thee to the front of the house!

For the life of this Blog I’ve been in the background, and truly it’s been quite comfortable(he chuckles and wipes the beads of sweat from his partner Shah’s forehead). With all due respect to the front of the house(Blog/FB/networking), and it does command quite a bit of it! I’ve been foraging in the back of the house, in the kitchen as they say, carving out what has become this little comic that could; and hopefully without plagiarizing the little engine, because it also could.

Enough with the cute-sies and such. We (the Shah and I) can safely say that  impulse power has been breached, it’s taken three long years and slowly, eventually, we insist on achieving a warp factor of 1 with the WEB COMIC. Next will be the construction, nay! The inception of the website thanks to our associate Sexy Jesus,  master craftsman and virtual doctor. [ Shah’s Note: The name of the person making the website for us actually mean’s ‘Jesus’, so don’t set your offense-o-meter to high. ] This is an opportunity for us to stop carrying and give birth to Qwixotic, like Zeus giving birth from his cranium. Except we are  not Gods, not cool like that. Also we confuse the mythological names like Hermes/Mercury, Poseiden/Neptune, Ares/Mars, Hades/Pluto and it just get’s sloppy and so on…

Somewhere amidst all the placentas and other birth sacs, sectioned off between thunderbolt and lightning and Zeus’s verbal labor pains, you will find the Shah and me… no wait,  go back a bit, you missed us. A little to the left, ya, right there, there we are.  I know, I know, you can barely see us. That’s because we’ve just suppressed the man behind the curtain who told us not to pay attention to him, waiting to stretch our limbs and grow, itching to create something worth your time.
