Well. Here we are.
On February 7th, 2010 I posted the first Angry Faerie. In truth though, AF was created months before that (July 2009 to be precise). I’d been having “artist’s block” for the longest time, and asked my co-worker for a suggestion on what to draw. She said, “A faerie beating up an elf”. I drew that picture and I thought it came out really well, and I had a stack of 5×17″ blue-line comic strip boards sitting at home so I drew a few strips just with the idea that it would be kind of amusing. Maybe I’d even post them online.
I did a bunch of strips before I started posting them. I probably had 12-15 already done, and I was only planning to update the comic 2x per week, so I figured I had a pretty good buffer. Ha ha.. yeah.. that didn’t last long, especially when I started posting 3x per week. Of course I never expected the comic to run as long as it has. I thought if I got to fifty pages or so that’d be pretty good, since until I started AF I’d never really done any kind of ongoing comic… or a comic that I was interested in continuing for more than 3 pages.
Now here we are at page 1000. Just shy of a 7 year run. Thanks to AF I’ve sold hard copies at conventions, had people dress up like the character, had comic release parties at comic shops, and of course had people comment online about the comic: whether they liked it or not, I always appreciated the feedback. It’s always great to know that someone out there was reading what I was putting out there.
So… thanks to everyone who reads this, whether it’s your first time stopping by or whether you’ve been reading since the beginning. Whether you’ve ever left a comment or not, I appreciate you taking a minute or two for my little comic.
I will still be posting art at:
http://scotts-art.tumblr.com so if you want to see whatever it is that comes next, be sure to follow me there. I do have another comic that I’ve already started on. Probably won’t be a webcomic, but some of the first pages are up on the tumblr site if you’re so inclined as to want to see them.
Once again, thanks for reading, and I’m not going to say this is the last you’ll ever see of Angry Faerie… just that this is the last you’ll see of her for now.
