My Bio

Mimsy's Kitchen, about the life of child prodigy chef Mimsy and her restaurant, which isn't doing too well. Mimsy is now struggling to elevate her restaurant, take care of her staff, and reclaim her former celebrity status. This is a comedy webcomic that has character development and will include some drama.

The status of the comic

It appears that the comic has changed drastically since it's inception. It's only recently that I've noticed things were transforming but it's apparent the comic has gone through a transition from gag-a-day to storyline with gags in between, and now it's becoming clear I'm straying form the gag format into something more story focused. This has caused me to rethink the comic on how to implement many of the elements I had once planned to the point that it has now transformed into something away from the gag-a-day style I originally planned. Now I really want to tell a story in a traditional comic style. So it has come to this: the comic will have to be restructured to be a more traditional story comic, but that also means that the current format has to come to an end because I really don't have the time to make a more traditional comic. The current format is easy to make, though not necessarily quick. It still takes me around 5 - 8 hours to make a strip. I also spent like 2 - 4 months

(THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST BUT THIS IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.) So after some planning and finally starting my job again after an absence due to the quarantine, I decided to finally get help with my comic. I need some guest artist to provide gag strips for my comic and I will be commissioning for this task. The job will entail a single strip of a number of panels. The comic has a format that consists of wide panels stacked on top of each other. The task of the guest artist will be to read a script for that strip's joke and draw the actions on the appropriate panels. The art style is western cartoonish but I'm willing to make exceptions if I like your art style enough. I prefer to have this comic in color but you are free to provide only an outline. Just be aware that if you do, I will have to color it myself. You may add the speech bubbles if you wish but it is not necessary. Also be aware that, even though you may have a nice art style, it may not be a fit for this comic. I will

Hitting the limit and accepting your limitations

Hitting the limit and accepting your limitations

I got a bit of an announcement to make and it concerns the Mimsy strips in the long run. I have recently decided to no longer continue to improve my artwork, a decision I have been wrestling with for a while now. I've been drawing for the past 20 years but I feel that the only reason why I've managed to make it this far is because I have so many ideas but nobody to really help me with them, so I started learning how to draw out of necessity rather than interest, or at least that is what I'm telling myself. Maybe there was a time that I truly believed I could be an artist but I can't recall actually thinking that. But now, 20 years later, I've actually gotten tired of drawing. I don't hate it, but I certainly don't enjoy it as much as I once did and one of the reasons why is because I'm really critical of what people think of my artwork now. That's really the honest truth, I wasn't satisfied with my artwork so I was constantly trying to improve it in the hopes that people would

Are you a chief in real life because it seems so far your comic are very detailed

No, but I went to culinary school and have worked in restaurants for a decade now.

Wow a artist and a chief . You know I do cook too but not professional work more like beans and casseroles and home food

No, I'm not a professional chef. I flunked culinary school, only picked up a few things. I haven't actually done culinary arts in years, so no, I can't make meals either, lol.

You character is a chief what kind of chief can she make pbj like mom use to make them? or is she a cold cereal kind of girl lol

She is a professional chef. She can make all kinds of foods, but her favorite food are pork chops and ice cream, sometimes at the same time (and yes, that's weird, that's why she keeps that a secret). And yes, she can make great PB&J sandwiches.

Oh she 13 I'm sorry I thought she was a young adult or or a teenager huh child prodigy:
