It's been over a year since I posted the original teaser for Tamashi. In that time I've made:

10 Chapters and 1 Bonus Chapter (256 Pages)

Finished 1 Story Arc

Made 2 Volumes (Wonder what's coming this month...)

And countless new art.

Whatever is in store for Tamashi in the future, It's going to be nothing but looking up!

Where is RANDOM?

Where is RANDOM by Derede



After about 6 years and 300 comics RANDOM! has finally finished it’s 3rd season. With another season done that means big changes again for the series. So for now RANDOM! the Comic is going on hiatus. I’ve got big plans for the series and I hope to gain more readers with them.

In the meantime, get prepared and caught up with Joe B. Gamble and friends as Season 4 is just on the horizon!

Big Updates (Tamashi and Summer Convention)

Journal Entry: Tue May 30, 2017, 4:21 PM


Well it's been a while since I make a journal post. So I might as well give a one stop shop on all that's going on.

Tamashi has begun!


I've finally made the dive and started work on my long in development manga Tamashi. This has been a passion project I've had for a long time and I'm finally pleased that it's out in the wild. I'm looking to have a new chapter every month.

You can read Tamashi on My website

And also on Tapastic

And if anyone is interested you can also support the series on Patreon

I'll also be at Connecticon again this year! There's gonna be a hard Tamashi push at my table this time. So if you're going this year be sure to say hello.

Inktober 2016

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 4, 2016, 8:43 AM


I've been meaning to post some of my Inktober sketches here but I'm having trouble deciding which ones I should.

I've made a section on my website that has them all collected in one spot. Check them out if you're interested

INKTOBER SKETCHES 

I found a large case of color markers mid October. That's why they suddenly gain color midway thru.

Going to Connecticon

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 4, 2016, 5:53 PM


I can’t believe it’s less then a week till my first big convention. For anyone who doesn’t know, I’ll have a table at Artist’s Alley at this years Connecticon! I’ll be selling prints, books, and other things. I also have a bunch of new prints that will be premiering at the table. I’ll post them the next few days approaching the Con.

Tommy Moriarty is helping me with dealing. So the table also counts as an Oh My Goodness Games meet up area.

I’m taking the big steps. Wish me luck.

So remember when I said that my webcomic RANDOM! was cancelled yesterday? And that I would be doing only political comics from now on? Well....

You know. April 1st and all.

I gonna take a lot more then people ignoring or missing my work for me to stop doing what I love doing. RANDOM! is not going anywhere and will continue for as long I love doing it.

Thanks to anyone who gave support in my "decision."

(Also politics are boring)

Yotsuba Suprised ? 
Whoopsie doodle! This journal post just slipped my mind.

If any eyeful watchers have seen; my webcomic RANDOM! has been posting new comics. That means season 3 has started. But season 3 of RANDOM! is bringing a lot more changes then ever.

:iconmnrthumbsupplz: 

INTRODUCING RYANMCCARTHYPRODUCTIONS.COM


The new official home for RANDOM! and any other of my works. It's still in an early state and will be changed over time. I'm just glad my work now has a place to call it's own.

A RANDOM Hiatus

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 17, 2015, 11:05 AM


Hiatus by Derede

UPDATE: Looks like I'm going to have to extend the hiatus up one more week. Lets just say the changes to the comic took a little longer then needed. Don't worry, it's going to be very worth it.

Hello everyone!

Just this Monday RANDOM! the comic reached its 200th comic and thus ended its second season! I told myself long ago that when I reached this point there were going to be some big changes coming to the comic. So to prepare for those changes, RANDOM! will be going on a brief two week hiatus.

What changes are coming? Well lets just say that it will be something big! Very big. I just want to thank anybody who has read RANDOM! and its idiom based adventures from this point. Special thanks to the site Smackjeeves for being a great host for the comic.

See you on the first Monday of October for the start of Season 3!

What? Mashiro Shiina (Stalks) [V1] Don't look at me like that! Big Fool Emoji-12 (Pervy Flirt) [V2] 

I really need to update this journal space more often. But I there hasn't been a whole lot that I feel would be DA worthy to post.  Expect more weekly comics per usual and some random posts for other projects I'm working on. Little Worker 

I do know that I'll be aiming to get tables at conventions more often this year. It's about time I stop being a audience member and start being a participant in the medium I love and getting my name out there. Ed Emote 2  It's pretty much the reason I didn't go to Connecticon this year.


I'm hoping to get more story related work posted. These 24 Hour Comics have been gathering dust and need to be read. :book

Me and my buddy Tommy are keep up a great pace with our gaming channel Oh My Goodness Games. We've already played a lot of games we love and have done some very funny stuff.
These are some of my favorite episodes and Play-through:


Now you can enjoy us and our funky options in video form! If you can please give us a like and sub. It goes a long way. :goodjob: revamp 
I will be going on vacation mid-August. Me and my family are going to go see the Grand Canyon! Now I get to see what life is like on the west coast! Luigi-Exit 3  

You may also have noticed I figured out this whole custom journal thing! Many thanks :iconslakoths:

That's all I can think of. I had a happy birthday and things are looking up. If you've been having some bad luck recently, just know that I'm rooting for you in spirit! :CheerUp: 


BTW: As you can see, I've found the emoticon gallery. This is too much fun. Rolf

Edit: More info on the art show!

Well it has been awhile since I typed a journal entry no? Well lets just say there have been a lot of good things to keep up with that have happened in the last few months that have made keeping up with journals. I'll just leave with a few updates and add on to this later. 

First and foremost: I've finally graduated from college! I'll be leaving with a electronic media major on my shoulders. Less classes means more art. So be on the look out.

Second: I'll be posting "RANDOM" comics here now on the day they are posted on the "RANDOM" site. No more week later nonsense.

Thirding: I'm having an art show! Like, a legit art show. It was an offer from my local church to host my art in their gallery when the father saw my art. They have hosted a lot of great artists and photographers in the past and I'm very honored to have my work shown on their walls. The oping day for the art show will be on the 24th of June. The theme will be anime convention, and guest are encouraged to come dressed up.  There will be food and video games there as well.  Check out the facebook page for the show and confirm that you're coming: www.facebook.com/events/141630…

Forth is borth: I'll be posting more story related content here soon. I've been meaning to share a lot of that here. That means a whole lot of 24 Hour comics and the first two chapters of my series "Tamashi".

That's all for now, will add more soon.

Facebook-Covor by Derede

  I am very proud to announce my next big project, The RM Jingle Jangle Gaming Countdown.  For the past three months, I’ve been working on a list of my top 20 favorite video games of all time.  In the spirit of the holiday season and the release of two new big gaming consoles, I’ve decided to share this list with everyone.  But I’m not doing something simple like just naming them off.  Throughout the month of December, starting the 2nd from Monday to Saturday, I’ll be posting a brand new art piece representing each choice.  I’ll be taking a break on Sundays.  Each art piece will include information about the game, a favorite quote, a message, (AKA Theme) I took from the game, and a paragraph describing why I picked that game.

    I picked either a single game or an entire game series.  Choices listed as “series” means that I think the experience the games offer are strengthened by playing the series as a whole.  Single game choices means that I think you can enjoy the game on its own merits.  This does not apply to game series with only one game under its belt.   

    This project will be going on all the way till Christmas Eve.  I hope everyone will enjoy this project just as much as am working on it.  There are a lot of personal and fun choices on the list; along with some surprise choices.  Some that will make people excited, some that will probably cause a little rage.  Even if you’re not a gamer I hope you will enjoy the art and hope to look at something in a different light.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Holidays everyone.  Time to start drawing!  


I'll be adding the posts down here.
