Here’s Gullimar. That’s a name I came up with a long time ago and I dig it. Some names have a sense about them and they feel good every time I say them. Gullimar, Gullimar, Gullimar. It works!
I wanted to establish the kind of world the nnewts live in. It’s full of adventure, with a little bit of magic. It’s supposed to look a little rustic, since this is a story about the past, so Katherine used more earthy, gritty tones to tell the story.
An update on the site, as of last week we went from about 600 unique visitors to about 800. That’s a good trajectory, and it means you’re all helping get the word out. I’m going to regularly post my traffic numbers just so you can follow along with how the audience is building or shrinking from time to time.
I’m in the middle of inking pages 21 – 24. If this schedule continues they’ll go up in the fall! This story is going to take a LONG time to get through, so we’ll just have to savor the wait. I’m the most impatient guy in the world, so there you go. I’ve been looking into Kickstarting a graphic novel, so it will either be another title I’m working on, or this one. If I can get some funding, we might be able to pick up the pace. I just don’t want to play my Kickstarter card just yet, since I’m developing a video game, and some other projects.
