Hello! in case you didn't catch the title of this blog my name is Kaitlin, and this is the silly little blog where I post the majority of my art.
I live in Southern California, and am currently studying art and animation here and am an aspiring Story Board Artist
Hi! Oh wow, thank you! I’m glad you liked the old version and have stuck with me this long.
If the first draft of the comic taught me anything is that you REALLY need to plan out and script your story, have a firm understanding of who the characters are, what their motivations are, and how they relate to the world around them.
I thought I had a clear enough vision at the time to just write and board straight out of my head, but there were so many scenes and pieces of dialogue that didn’t relate to the plot and/or could be moved to make the storytelling more effective and concise.
I’m currently in the process of fleshing out the world and characters and writing down the script for the first few chapters.
I can say that they will be…very different…but at the same time very familiar to what you guys read in the first chapter.
Many of the same events will play out, but in different ways. The characters you know will have the same. Different personalities, back stories, and appearances, some even have different names. But at the core, are the same characters you read about, just more refined and fleshed out over the years.
But I think these changes were all for the best and contribute more to the themes and narratives I want to convey.
Anyways, thank you for being so patient with me these last few years! My stories are something I don’t think I’ll ever give up, they’re a huge part of who I am and It’s my ultimate goal to share them with the world. I just want to make sure that when I do it, it’s the best it can be.
As for test panels, I think you may see one, along with other bits of concept art fairly soon!
I know it’s by email, but how do they want us to handle our porfolio?
PDF? Website Link???
And by “Early Spring” Do they mean they’re open for submissions now? Or sometime in the near future?

My dog is a she, actually XD
And she’s actually kinda dopey IRL, but don’t tell her I said that >_>
I’m going to be in a Wes Anderson gallery show in March, and I need to find a good place to get my digital piece printed out and preferrably framed for the gallery.
