Planet Karen http://planetkaren.co.uk I'm Karen and this is my life. Wed, 25 Sep 2013 08:25:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Not Forgotten http://planetkaren.co.uk/2013/09/21/not-forgotten/ http://planetkaren.co.uk/2013/09/21/not-forgotten/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 07:22:59 +0000 http://planetkaren.co.uk/?p=2455 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]> Some of you may have noticed the site go blank recently. That was my bad, not Karen’s. An update changed how the theme worked and I’d missed to announcement. So, there was some rushed rebuilding and here we are. Still needs work.

I know it’s been a while, but Karen tells me she hasn’t written the comic off. And she’s giving some thought to new comics.

So beam them love vibes her way, and maybe we’ll get some new comics. Because threatening to post the fan art I did for her doesn’t seem to be doing it (and the pic I did of Mighty Mari – well, Mari scares me and we’ve never met).

Cheers!
AndyO!

I’ve also found time to do an extra Planet Karen comic for (and about) Warren Ellis that can be found, along with a number of other fine comics at warrenellis.com.  To those who have dropped by for the first time after seeing my comic there, welcome!

More info on the imminent (fingers crossed) publication date for Planet Karen: Second Thoughts when I have any myself.

I’m still busy right now, but I’ve taken a week off drawing Octobriana to do a four page comic written by the supernacular Gail Simone for Planet Karen: Second Thoughts.

Still don’t have an official publication date set for the book, but I think I’ll hold off asking until I finish drawing it.

Since I’m still a bit busy, I thought I might try a letter column next time. So if you have a question you’d like to ask, email me at the address on the contact link and maybe I’ll answer it.

Octobriana.org is now live, though there’s not a lot to look at yet, other than the logo.  I set it up primarily to showcase my own Octobriana projects, but lately people have started telling me about other Octobriana productions (I didn’t even know there were any other Octobriana productions currently), so I’m thinking of including something about them too.

I’m releasing the logo out into the world for anyone to use under a creative commons license.  More about that at octobriana.org.

This is where I write about the comic I’m working on and tempt you with little tidbits of images of the work in progress.  Because I don’t have the time or the artistic energy to devote to anything else right now.

Also, I think writing about the creative process and showing the development of ideas is interesting.  If you don’t, best come back in a couple of weeks.

This is the first comic I’ve ever done that’s going to be published in full colour.

But I won’t be doing the colouring.

Thankfully.

Because I suck at it.

Updates may be erratic over the next couple of weeks as I am busy working on the Womanthology project; an anthology graphic novel created entirely by women for Charity.  Lots more information here.

What’s really exciting for me is that I’m working with comics legend Trina Robbins on a story featuring the irrepressible Octobriana!!

I was just starting to catch up on my comics reading when I got sidetracked over the weekend by an anime called Simoun, about adolescent girl fighter pilots who are also priestesses who describe their flights as “praying to the sky”, and they are not really girls because you don’t get to choose your gender until you go to The Spring, and one of the prayers. AKA attack formations actually causes you to travel in time.

As I was in the midst of working on this I saw an article** about how Marvel Comics are saving everyone the trouble of spoiling their comics by giving them away themselves. Yeah, ‘cos whenever I see a movie trailer that gives away the entire plot of the film I totally want to pay money to see the same thing take two hours.

Also, if you look closely in the first panel you may be able to see some of my tiny dalek army.

 

**contains spoilers.
