Christmas letter

My mom wanted me to make a comic strip to include in the family newsletter for this Christmas. I think I might just do the first three panels and then make a fake list of accomplishments which would be funny I think.

(click on comic to make larger)
What do you think of the trees? I tried out some new ways of drawing them. I like them, I think I will continue to play around with them though.

Ethan Zap 11 Randomness

(click comic to see larger image)
I enjoyed making this one is was a lot of fun. Funny thing is when I went back to retrace my steps Google changes what it pulls up so you may pull up the same things if you do a search with the same things but more than likely not.

Ethan 10 Christmas songs...grrr

Yeah, made it to double digits! It doesn't seem like a lot to do that but for me that is a big thing. This comic is a little simple but that is what this blog is for, experiments and to try things out, see what works and what doesn't. Everyone strikes out at baseball when they are still learning, I am going to keep swinging away at these comics until I start hitting and then keep hitting until I am the home run king of comics.

Pizza friends

(click image to see bigger comic)
It's always interesting to me how I am people's best friends for a minute or two and how they will praise me and tell me how great I am but really what does that mean? A bigger tip? I often have different scenerios go threw my mind and this is one of them, except for the skipping part I just found that really funny and I laugh every time I see it.

Ethan Zap 02

Well here is post two. I haven't got to the shading yet because I am still pushing hard to get it posted on time which I will do one of these days. As well, I am still working with the size of Ethan. His body looks different in panel two, oh well. I'm excited to keep going with this though, to see what comes of it.

Ethan Zap 01

Okay it's my first day posting a comic and I already missed the deadline, but I got a comic done! It's okay for me though because the more I do it the faster I will get and the kinks will be worked out. For example, I used to have the fonts I used for the text but when I reloaded windows on my computer I lost them and I had to go download some comic fonts all of which weren't really what I was looking for. I did eventually find what I was looking for. Oh and I went through like 7 different possible names and ended up going with the simplest of them all. Here are a few of the names that I had considered: Stellar Ethan, Blank ethan, The Zaps, Dragon Grab Dream(DGD), Light Runner road, Ethan, Stellar Ethan Zap or S.E.Z., I turned this down due to the similaties to SEX

Set up for Stellar Ethan

Stellar Ethan

Ethan Zap- A socially awkward guy who is very interested in the Meta psychical world and studies and experiments with it a lot. Loves dancing, interested in art, takes after his father and likes inventing. Para-balloning,
Abilities he currently has:
Telepathy- The kind I have where I am never sure if it is me or not. Also communicates with others and can suggest things in there mind when they are thinking and coming up with something (yes like a Jedi) (use the panda bear example with tiffany).
Readings for others, but kind of random
Prophecy- random thoughts or dreams about things, humor comes from the randomness and how it ties into what ends up happening.
Auras- some times sees them
Healing- at times

On the shy side

James Allan Zap –brother of Ethan. Named after the author of “As a man thinketh” Is very much into sports and always has a girlfriend. The whiner, complains at things and is the most materialistic of the family. Ethan tell him theories and experiences but also makes fun of him as well, but not the actual theories, just his over zealousness. Over all they are friends and get along.

Jet Jettson- The best friend of Ethan and the super talented one that Ethan is usually jealous of. Is an actor and semi famous in the independent scene. Also is in a band and really good as well. (maybe the snowmen) Also gets into deep discussions with Ethan about life.

Maxwell Zap- The father, inventor and based off of my own father. Conservative and based in faith.

Mary Zap- Mother, Buddhist background.

Roger Zap- AKA Mr.Kook. Paranoid of squirrels attacking him because he steals there food that he taught them how to make, it actually is a drug of sorts for him and frankly he is addicted.

The comic strip is about Ethan and his life with the interesting characters that he lives with and his daily musings about life and spirituality.

A new perspective

A couple weeks ago I met this really cool girl on a plane when I was flying back from my brothers wedding. Anyway I had this dream about her and her sister. It was a really interesting dream and so I turned it into a comic strip. I'm sure it makes no sense to most people, I could explain it but it requires a long story which I don't feel like posting.

First of of new series called "Blank Ethan"

I finally decided on a name for my comic strip and the ideas are coming together. This comic strip posted here is kind of generic and doesn't go along with the strip to much but I did it more for myself and my focus. If you are wondering why I choose the name "Blank Ethan" you will see later on so I am not going to explain now.

#6 Meat for Repentance

I made this a couple weeks ago I just never scanned it in until today. Anyway, I see ways to improve it however that would mean a complete rewrite and it's okay now so I will just leave it so I can work on more comics. Oh and that's a hunk of meat by the fruit in case anyone was wondering.

First 5 of 100

1 2



Here are my first five comic strips of the 100 I hope to do. My guildlines are pretty simple, do what ever I want, any characters anyway I feel would work. I hope to learn a lot this way and explore what I am capable of doing.

I think that this may be too realistic and not enough of the cartoon look I want to go for
