I've got to say it's felt pretty neat posting on this account again. For those of you that weren't aware, Adam and I decided to give making comics a real chance last fall. We quit our jobs and set up TricksyWizard.com. And what a year (so far)! We've met great people, we're producing more comics and content than ever before, and we're happy. We're finally doing what we love for a living.
Here's the interesting part of that: We have no idea what we're doing. Our plans in terms of upload schedule and where we post have fluctuated a couple of times. Initially we thought we'd just focus on reddit and google ad sense for our site. However, the ads don't really work with the way we set up out site on square. We'd thought of doing a Patreon before, and if site ads were going to be such a headache anyway, why not just focus on Patreon instead? So, without the burden of needing site hits to make our money, we've reevaluated.
We realized that we don't need to localize where we post to just our website. As long as the name shows up on all of our comics, commissions, and whatnot, it's probably better to just post, well, everywhere, right? More eyes will see our stuff and maybe somebody or two somebodies will even remember our name. So we splurged for the DA core account and changed the name to Tricksy Wizard, got Instagram and Tumblr too. We'll post our backlog here probably 2 times a week until the DA account gets caught up with the website. Until we get caught up, if you want to see the newest stuff we're working on, you can find it at TricksyWizard.com.
Additionally, we have a cool new project. We're still doing weekly joke strips about video games and weird marriage stuff and whatnot, but we also have a fledgling graphic novel called "Alive, Alive Oh!". It's been a labor of love scripting and thumb nailing it for the past few years. Now we're releasing pages from it as a webcomic. A new page goes up every Monday (usually in the evening). Our goal is to get AAO to two pages a week very soon.
Anyway, the gist is that we're delighted to be back. It's so cool that you guys stuck around. We're excited to share our stuff with you and, hopefully, make you laugh a little. If you want to see our entire backlog you can head over to TricksyWizard.com. We've got all of our comics there, all pages of AAO, a gallery of digital tabletop tokens and maps, and our commission info.
