Apologies for the hiatus. My feeble excuse: I was working on I'M BORED and also learning how to use Photoshop. I finally got around to switching my Will Write For Chocolate template from Corel Painter to Photoshop, which will make it easier for me to update the strip.
Thanks to those who have been nudging me recently; I updated mainly because of you. :-) I've also created a Google+ Page and a Facebook Page for Will Write For Chocolate, and would appreciate it if you could follow/Like these Pages. And again, THANK YOU so much for your continuing support!
Apologies for the hiatus. A lot has happened in my life since I last posted. One of the most significant: I got a book deal. I'm illustrating Michael Ian Black's new picture book, I'M BORED, which is coming out from Simon & Schuster next year. HOW COOL IS THAT?
I've also been taking my illustrating and cartooning far more seriously, and have been drawing a lot more. I've been posting daily doodles on my revamped DebbieOhi.com page, and settling into an illustration style. I used to draw in a ton of styles -- all fun, but it meant that I wasn't really improving in any of them. So I've decided to focus on the loose sketchy style that publishers and art directors seem to like (and frankly, is easiest for me).
One of the reasons I've taken so long to get back to Will Write For Chocolate is because I've never really been happy with that old, tighter style. I -know- it's a big no-no to change illustration styles in the middle of a comic strip but I figure hey, I'd rather change than shut down the comic strip altogether. So welcome to the revamped Will Write For Chocolate! This looser, sloppier style feels much more natural to me, which means I'm more likely to post more often. :-)
I'm actually participating in FOUR creative challenges this month (which prompted my friend Andrew's comment, which inspired this comic), but there wasn't room.
