Wuh oh! :D

Hey everyone, I'm in Los Angeles now! I'm getting my bearings and trying to work on the comic now but hopefully I'm going to be able to meet people and see about getting work in the art world!

Wish me luck, or if you know someone in the business in Los Angeles... hook me up? ;D

I was about to say "personally I would've" and then realized that no, I probably would've tried to get down quickly by punching through floors as well.

Hmmm

The last few panels are looking very Jack Kirby. Nice work!

Looks like Hugh is going to reach ground level pretty quickly, one way or another.

Best wishes on the job hunt. I know how soul draining the wrong job can be.

He's making an elevator!

And thanks, yeah, I just want to find a job that I don't hate. That's all I ask, you know? :')

Oh yeah! You're pretty close, huh? :D If I end up staying down here a bit longer maybe we can organize some sort of meet up or something!

Yusssss--that would be super cool! I'm living in San Diego now but a couple hour drive is no big deal. No pressure at all but let me know! I'm always excited to meet fellow furians when they wander into my territory! (LOL..I guess I just consider all of SoCal my territory. Get over yourself, Serpy, amiright? XDDD)

Naw, I'd say you've earned it! Heck, I kinda wanna go check out the zoo down there before I head back anyway, so, I'll PM you if the winds start blowing that way :D

Even if the house falls on him, I'm sure he'll be fine. Maybe a bit dusty.

If that happened though, would he be strong enough to get himself out of the rubble? He's tough, but...

Is he heavier because of the magic armor? That would make sense. That's why he is taking down this house, or is he just this heavy regardless? Which I wouldn't doubt either.

Good luck in LA. Hope your wonderful work gets the recognition it deserves.

Nah, he's not heavier - he just damaged the roof earlier so he figured he'd try to smash his way in... for the sake of the story, looks like it worked! XD

Aw geez, man, thank you - is your prologue finished yet? I wanna give your comic the once over once its done. I just haven't been reading ANY comics lately, hoping to fix that soon :I need to grab that mood when it shows up and straight up devour some stuff.

I actually cancelled on the prologue and restarted the book. Long story. But it was the best decision. There was a little intro and now I'm on page 1.
I understand; feels like there's no time to sit around and read books anymore. I'm so behind on some of my favorite series.

That's totally fine, thank you, though :D It's been safe so far, mostly a lot of friendly people and other tourists, haha.

Go, Hugh!
What're you looking to do in art in LA? If you're looking for gaming work, a bunch of companies in CA are hiring right now, depending on your skillset.

I'm hoping to get work somewhere in either a "line artist" sort of thing, or what would be better is a storyboard artist, maybe 2D design either for environments or characters (what used to be called concept art)

I'm sorta putting the feelers out, now :) Thanks for the tip, I actually wasn't even thinking game companies, heh!

Are you on ArtStation? They have regular job listings, mostly for games. CGSociety also lists jobs on their site. A book that's published yearly that might help looking for storyboarding jobs is "The Artist's and Graphic Designer's Market" (the focus is on US companies). Lastly, this isn't US or permanent work, but you might want to check out a company called "District 31". They're a UK game company that makes Lovecraft-inspired games and are always looking for artists and graphic designers. Let me know if you want links to any of these. Good luck!

Good luck on the job hunt from someone who only recently ended a lengthy period of involuntary retirement.

Hugh is on his own for the moment. Hope he gets out of the rickety house before it collapses. In any event, he has given Jaunt a period of much needed relief
