Good evening, everyone! Tonight I want to announce a project I've been thinking on doing for a couple of years now. As you might know by now, Never Mind is my auto-bio webstrip, but a few years back after not doing a new season of the strip for a while, I had the idea of one story in particular, something kind of like A Christmas Story, sort of mixed with This Is Us. Then I read the graphic novel Smile, and it cemented my desire to make this story.
Never Mind Presents: Bicycle is a relatively ambitious project since I've never ever thought I'd attempt a long form story in this style. In contrast to the strip which are random glimpses into things that happened in y life, Bicycle is more focused on a particular moment in my life that threads together flashes from the past and more recent moments.
Not only will the art be a challenge, it will probably be my most challenging script to do as a writer as well, to try and bridge different events that leads to a cohesive moment and a coherent story. It will be my most personal story I've ever written, and despite the challenges this projects presents, I am SUPER excited to work on this because of these challenges, and I hope you all look forward to it.
My plans are to finish the script by the end of 2021 and start work on it art wise in 2022. I will be giving glimpses of the story throughout the year. As always, thank you for reading, stay tuned, catch you next blog, and stay safe!
