The Anecdote Anthology
The fourth entry to this anthology series "The Risky Arrangement" was a difficult, slow, but ultimately rewarding comic to make.
My main focus with this one was to improve on my dialogue writing and just writing in general while starting to spread the seeds for larger projects in the future. This helped me justify getting all the way to the middle of a second draft of a script only to throw it all out and make a completely different story from scratch. That being said, the story that ended up being made is much better than the one that didn't.

While Anecdotes 2 was a major growth with my visual art style, the big focus for me with Anecdotes 3 was to strengthen my writing skills. Overall, while I still think there's much room for improvement, Anecdotes 3 is a major jump in quality from my previous comic, much like the jump in quality between Anecdotes 1 and 2.
Since I knew from the start that I wanted to print physical books I had to account for print specific elements such as using a reasonable page size, using the right color scheme for print, and accounting for bleed and trim lines. The "print format" I used for this comic is what I've used when making comics ever since. All that on top of completely changing the art style from Anecdotes 1's fully digital style to a hybrid of traditional and digital art.
"Logan the Wanderer" was my first dip into creating fully original comics, back when I hadn't even decided on an art style I liked. As a result, I tried to go for a more painterly, lineless style. Overall though, it's very rough, but I am happy with it and how much I've grown since.
