Hi, big fan of your comic. I wanted to ask you a question about your work process. Do you write scripts for any of your comics or do you just thumb nail out ideas and draw them later? Thanks.
Right now, I’m working off of an outline. I thumbnail and make notes while working out a story beat, and write out dialogue that may or may not be used. I would like to try using a script eventually, but I just don’t have the extra time right now. Most of the people I’ve asked who also make webcomics, tend to work off of outlines instead of scripts for similar reasons. No idea if that’s actually the norm. I currently have ideas for seven chapters for Harpy, but have just started laying out how long it would take to write and draw all of it. Even having most of the outline done, I try to thumbnail out three or four weeks worth of comic at a time. I have a full time job and some other freelance, without having the thumbnails I wouldn’t be able to handle it.
Hello Kitty, Hello 40 comes out tomorrow!

Need a fun, charming new webcomic that stars a rad female protagonist with a cat sidekick? I thought you might, and I have a recommendation for you: Harpy Gee by Brianne Drouhard. Brianne’s one of my favorite artists and when I belatedly realized she’s been publishing a webcomic since January (apparently I’ve been living under a rock, duh!) I rushed to check it out.
Harpy Gee is released on Mondays over at Dumm Comics. It stars an Elf girl named Harpy and her cat Pumpkin (who’s adorable and a living bag of holding) and some friends they meet along the way. I refuse to share many details because I didn’t know about anything when I dove in, and it’s rare to have that experience in this day of teaser trailers and teasers for those teaser trailers.

Twitter weirdness. Someone asked for Hamphrey, but they probably meant Harpy/Humphrey.
