'Ello, 'ello, 'ello!
« on: October 14, 2010, 12:33:27 AM »
And hi, everyone!

My name's Charlie, I'm 33, married and living in the Boston area. I'm a newlywed (married in Feb '10) and have been with my wife for 5 years after having known her since the mid-90s. She's a hoot and a holler, and we're having a great time together. So great, in fact, that I've decided to share it with the world via my new (and first!) webcomic that I call Goofy Love! Life with my wife is anything but boring, and I think that a lot of people can relate.

Background: I had two BEST friends in High School and we all liked comic books like any normal teenage boy should. They were artists. I had never drawn anything more than a stick figure in my whole life prior to that. But after a ton of practice and observation, over the years I got better, and I'm at a point now where I'm pretty pleased with my current style.

Back to now: I work almost entirely in Photoshop, and am learning how to produce a webcomic as I go. I'm learning all sorts of tricks that many of you have known for years that are making production go a lot smoothly and easily.

More background: I've always fancied myself a creative person, having performed in theater (both straight plays[aka non-musicals] and musicals), in various rock bands, video production and now graphically.

Back to now: I'm getting more and more comfortable writing and drawing Goofy Love as I figure out exactly what kind of strip it will be. I consider it semi-autobiographical, taking inspiration from real situations that have occurred in our time together, although I do intend on tossing a bit of the fantastical in there as well. For instance, under certain circumstances, my wife gains superpowers. There will be recurring themes, but no over-arching storyline beyond typical married people stuff.

That's it for me! I'm excited to be a part of the webcomic community and I look forward to connecting with you!

Welcome man. You've got some real heart on your sleeve enthusiasm going on there. It's refreshing in these somewhat jaded times.

Best of luck to you.
