BEHIND GEEKASAURUSAn Exclusive Look at the Making of a Webcomic, One Line at a Time
Geekasaurus is a silly little comic about a geeky family. Specifically, my geeky family, and all the antics and hijinks of my daughter. You’ll read along as we go on adventure after adventure, documenting the unexpected chuckles (and sometimes hard truths) along the way. As my husband and I learn to navigate being new parents, I’ll be sharing the hilarity, one comic at a time, updated every Wednesday morning at Geekasaurus.Net
To be honest, Geekasaurus all started in a moment. That’s it. I had no grand plan or crazy scheme here. As a writer and an artist, it was inevitable that I would combine my two favorite mediums into one. I am surprised that I didn’t start a webcomic a lot sooner. But here I am, muddling through and learning as I go along, adding a webcomic on to my already full plate of writing a novel and starting a professional art career. With comics, I’m learning as I go. And I want to share with you what I learn as I learn it.
Maybe you’re a parent trying to juggle a million things at once and you could use a good laugh every once in a while. Maybe you’ve got an idea in the back of your head just itching to get out and you could use some inspiration. For everyone who wants to know how making a webcomic works, from start to finish, I will be sharing my journey with you. That includes all the ups and downs that go along with learning something new. I will share the successes AND failures to amuse you (and possibly help you) through whatever you’re working on or struggling with.
To all the artists, curious readers, parents, maybe even a superfan (if I’m lucky) – joining my mailing list is a great way to keep in the loop about all the Geekasaurus news I have to share. If you want to be a part of that journey. If you want to see exclusive behind-the-scenes content. If you want to be updated whenever I have a randomly BRILLIANT idea about something new to share with you, then please sign up for my mailing list.
I promise that I won’t fill up your inbox with a bunch of junk that you have to sift through every day. Seriously. Ain’t nobody got time for that! I don’t like having to do it on my end so I know that you don’t want to do it on your end either. One, maybe two newsletters a month and an occasional special offer if I have one is all you’ll get from me. What I want is the opportunity to share with you all the quirky moments and cool lessons that I keep scooping up every day. You’ll get funny stories, useful lessons, access to special content, invite-only exclusives, and you’ll get to learn all the juicy tidbits before anyone else.
Nothing makes me prouder than being able to brighten someone’s life through my work. If I can evoke a strong emotion, like passion, joy, sorrow, or nostalgia, then I have truly created something that touches the souls of others. I’ve felt honored by those who have called what I do “delightful” and “whimsical” – comments like these let me know that I am on the right path. I am finally where I belong. Life is a journey. Join me and let’s explore it together.
