Groups

Heya Guys ‘n’ Gals,


this Mumbling is a special one. I post this one not just on my Homepage and tumblr as per usual, but on all the platforms I’m active on!

The reasons for this are two important things. First I like to make a look back at Abesome Life in a kind of Appreciation Letter and secondly, I like to explain how everything will continue based on the information I gave you the past weeks so far.


Appreciation and Evolution

I like to make an early year recap just for Abesome Life. This is important to me because I never expected what it has become in just one year.

Abesome Life began as a little fun thing I did in Design school and back then I rarely had good ideas or concepts to turn into a Comic Page. Also, I wasn’t satisfied with my art back then, to be honest. So it ended up in the backyard so to speak. But at the end of 2016, I got more and more ideas and got the feeling back to work on this Webcomic. January 2017 I started the new plan for Abesome Life. Every week I uploaded two pages telling a one-page story.  But eventually, the one-pager, or One-Offs as I call them now, became more. I started to create a background, a whole world for the comic. Quicker and Quicker became those backstories more detailed. Additionally, my art evolved. From simple line art, I got to Gray shading and eventually to color. That resulted in a slower Upload time tho’. I feared that my online activity would suffer from it but it didn’t. Quite the opposite. There were days where the views and likes skyrocketed. At that point, I’m uploading to 5 different websites including my own homepage. Each one had different results at different times.

Not so long ago, I concluded what I call the first Volume of Abesome Life. I never expected in January, when I first revived Abesome Life that I will make a book out of it. This is insane to me!

And I have to thank all of YOU for that!

Without your feedback, your likes, views and occasionally Comments I would have improved this series as I did. Also, I wouldn’t have the motivation to continue, even with all those ideas! I really appreciate your support and I hope we can even get further than this!

Now I’m working on Volume Two and it already has a different structure than Volume one. Not to speak of the Look. It is full color and there will be even more development in the future. But more to that in the second Part.

I feel like this comic will grow bigger than we expect and this all thanks for your help.  So a really big THANK YOU just to you. I know those are just words but be sure that the thanks will come in a different form in the future. Stay tuned for that. :)


Hiatus with Results

First off kinda bad news. Abesome Life is going on a Hiatus for some time. That means the latest Page “Alone in the Dark” is the last one for now. The reasoning behind this is a good one tho’. I like to focus on finishing the Book for the next weeks. It is Crunchtime for me now. I really wanna release it this year and I can’t do it when I have to draw an Abesome Life Page each week. So I thought I finish up this Sports Arc and go on a Hiatus.

But the Book is not the only reason for this Break. If I finished the book I could get right into making the Pages again, but I won’t. This is because I want to try out a new upload schedule.  As you would guess Volume two will be segmented into Arcs, beginning with the Sports Arc. For now not every Arc is completely planned out but for now, it looks like this:

Sports Arc – 11 Pages (Done)

Dream Realm Arc – 12 Pages est.

Vacation Arc – 11 Pages est.

Family Arc – 7 Pages est.

Design School Arc – 30-40 Pages est.


I like to finish up those Arcs before starting to upload them. For example, I start working on The Dream Realm Arc in January and as I finish up the last page the Uploads will start. But not as usual. With that method, I can go back to upload two pages a week again. After that Arc is done uploaded there will be a short break until the next one will start being uploaded. And so on and so on. But don’t worry, there won’t be a hole in between. I will update you on stuff I do each week. The reason for this decision is that I like to try out new things with the comic and as I go on they get more elaborate. I don’t want to stress out each week to finish up a page. That way I can’t deliver the quality I like to have.

In addition to all of that, I finally want to finish up my other comics like Smuggler Affairs. As I worked on those I always lost the sight of it and did other stuff. With my new structure, I can focus on everything in the own time. And eventually, you get more Products from me as we go along.

As I start working with this new structure in mind, I’ll open up my very own Patreon Page. In case you don’t know what Parteon is, it is a website for creators like me to be supported by fans like you. As I publish, post and Upload my comics or Artworks you can leave an amount of money of your decision to support me. This can be happening as a monthly “payment” or per Upload, which I will probably prefer. For now, I earn a little bit with Abesome Life over on tapas. The Fans over there don’t even need to pay themselves. Each page I upload there has an Add Banner and as you take a look at the comic you also generate a view for the Add. As this number rises I get a little bit of money for that. It’s not much but it doesn’t cost anyone anything. So if you don’t have the money to support me at Patreon go over to tapas and read my Comics there. This will help me enormously!
