Not at all pleased with my art here, but whatever. Hopefully I bought enough time to get me ready for the new week, aka Monday is next comic.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
Probably going to have slow updates this week, to let me get back on track. Thursday’ll be the next one. I’m trying to rectify cartooning and finding a job. It’s never (okay, it’s rarely) easy. So I get all bleh and veg out, which is not a great state to be making art.
Speaking of art, Tim’s eyes in the fourth panel are something I see on a few other comics and I tried it out. If I had done a better pitchfork mob, I’m sure it would have been better. I dunno, I’ll try using it again in the future, see what sticks.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
I may have worked through my issues with story that were tripping me up this week. Next week should flow a bit better.
I’m trying to do what I can to include Pokelizations in the comic. Sometimes they’re forced, others, elegant. Not sure where ‘Uknowns lining up’ fits, but it’s better than the Exeggcute line from yesterday, yeah?Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
I had family in last week/end, I lost a lot of time at the DMV yesterday, and there’s a holiday today, and tommorrow, I have a job interview. Let’s call comics a bit sporadic until I get it all together again…
Dorian and Jenny are jumping to all sorts of conclusions today. But I think the facts fit what they know.

So here’s my thought process. I don’t know how well it works, but it might be what I go with. Mostly. Trained Pokemon are, more or less, able to communicate with at least their trainers, maybe with any trainer, maybe with any empathetic person. I can’t think of a situation where someone not being able to understand a Pokemon would be beneficial to the story. I mean, sure, I can see someone who has to learn to trust or whatever having a problem stranded in the forest or something. But until then, Pokemon are going to be able to communicate rather cleanly.
Not wild Pokemon, of course. (which I ought to include in the comic soonish, yeah?) Its the training I guess? I dunno. Some wilds, of course…
Look, Jenny and Growlithe are a good team. They have a good chemistry and can understand each other. That’s why Jenny has just a Growlithe, instead of another partner. Pokemon make good teammates. Yeah.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
Not pleased with that Poke-Speak in panel one, but whateves. I like the CCTV effect, but I feel like I should have done something with the other monitors? But I don’t want to establish anything that I have to keep drawing again in future shots. So I just went with that.
Regretting the “grabbing the radio to talk” thing. That’s really limited the poses I can do during this conversation. So the future of the story has been shaped by that annoyance. A little.
Of course, I’ve said that about collared shirts in character design, and, oh hey, look at that, Donovan has a collared shirt. Huh.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
Oh look! A scene change! And a new character. I kind of wanted to do the dark room thing for out dispatch fellow, but I decided against it. That’s kind of over played, and it was way late when I was finishing it up. So standard colors for you! and maybe more of him tommorrow? Confirmed. More of him tommorrow.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
This is a joke I have had in the… holster? for a long time. So glad to bring it out, finally.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
I think it’s important to let everyone know, this character and his father are not in any other Pokemon work. They’re original to me. So don’t beat yourself up trying to figure out the name, k? This is, however, a joke I knew about a long time ago, when I named this character.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
