“That Day”is an 8-page original short horror comic which tells the story of what happens to a quiet couple relaxing by the pool, at their beach house, one summer morning. Entirely digital creation with Manga Studio, Google SketchUp and Photoshop; written with Mobile Word.
It starts one day when a web publisher asks you for samples showcasing various styles of work, for some art page on their web portal. The deadline being pretty short, you create a few illustrations that could be postcards, cartoons, paintings. One style is missing: we need a comic book page.
A nice way to test some new hardware/software drawing equipment. You know you made it when the tools disappear and the story and artwork shine through. “That Day” is a short horror story with a shock ending. It’s been fun working on that pool…
This piece of cover artwork shows the new title’s logo and the book subtitle. “Noah: The Volunteer” will be a regular comic strip (read the excerpt from the original idea). I’m thinking of making more than a weekly webcomic. Several updates a week seem more than likely.
