Earlier today I posted the 4th turn of Alfa on Death is Certain. She’s now being slaughtered.
Some one panel story warmups, respectively titled: “Help! My hand is a picturesque coastline!” “The Obvious Usurper” “The Red Racer comes to town”
Got back yesterday from a short holiday, so here’s an update for Death is Certain’s first big heartbreak.
It never occurred to me that people might see the omelette man as Alfa’s papa, but the idea seems so obvious to me now that I decided to run with it!
I’ve also put in some page navigation so that you can easily turn back to previous turns or the beginning of the character’s story. Still thinking about how to make it more obvious how to reveal the comments section - the obvious option (to add yet another panel/button above the polling buttons) looked a little too daft.
Anyway, another comic tomorrow! What fortune will you bring Alfa next?
Last night went great, thank you all for trying out the site - if you missed yesterday, there’s a new comic open for voting.
The idea is that you and other readers can vote to give or take away the precious hearts of adventurers, effectively prolonging their stories or cutting them short. Post messages to rally your friends or rile up your enemies - it’s meant to capture the atmosphere of booing with everyone at a lousy play!
Only one comic (or ‘turn’) is up so far, so it’s very early days. The technical underpinnings doubtless have a long way to go, as does the storytelling and art – but this is a machine meant to chew through poor performances.
I will post development stuff at the Death is Certain Tumblr!
today’s weather: RAIN

I want to get better at drawing from my arm and also want to keep a drawn dream diary.
Last night I dreamt of orange pool salts, and jumped in the pool with my towel wrapped around my shoulders.
My children’s book for Osnovy publishing house is so close to being published! Thanks to Dana Pavlychko Vladislav Putistin and Aizhana Nurkenova, who made this sweet little video about my working process! I am quite pleased that it features my cats Rokkaku and Bim and the beautiful Dutch weather.
In which my love for Asterix is proudly unfurled.
The Peaches website says that if you follow me on Tumblr there would be sketches. So. ‘Gig’, Very Sensitive, and Leader the Elder. And uh, Leader’s son, covered in raspberry jam.
You may already know the term hikikomori, coined for the growing number of young people in Japan who choose to close their windows to the world and live in their bedrooms. I know I’ve felt like that sometimes.
This is flyer artwork for a play all about hikikomori that will be staged in Japan next year called Sei-shun.
