Hi everyone! My comic has launched today! It has its own website where it will be updating regularly, three times a week (thanks to my bro, who actually understands how computers work):

http://tgwfa.meedean.com/

The (slightly) revised first five pages are already up on the site, as well as page 6! I’ve also created a tumblr blog for the comic if you would like to keep track of updates through your dashboard. It will also have… whatever it happens to have, art and the like. 

http://tgwfacomic.tumblr.com/

I’m very excited (and nervous) to finally be sharing my first personal comic online with all of the people who have been kind enough to follow my art for so long. This comic has been in production since I wrote the script last December and started making pages in May, but I’ve had the idea for it for over a year and a half.

I’d really like to say a big thank you for any likes, or reblogs, or general niceness and support, since I can’t thank everyone individually! I really hope you will enjoy reading the comic as much as I enjoy making it.

About

The Girl Who Flew Away  is a graphic novel in progress set in 1976 and partly in 1926, following  twenty-something secretary, Greer Johnson. Through an affair with her boss, she becomes pregnant and is sent to stay with his friends for the duration in Key West, Florida. There, she begins to recollect her past and to dream about a little girl she’s never seen before named Eugenie. Meanwhile, she makes friends with a gardener missing his family and battles with her temporary caretakers.

I posted this a whole year ago, wow! I’ve updated the pages a little, updated the site a little… I’m also working on a new book that will be pages 1-145. It’d be neat to do a Kickstarter, but it will probably just be another lulu.com thing. : )

Thanks for reading this long everybody, and if you like the comic I’d love if you could take a moment and share it with others!

It’d be awesome if you could help me get this post to reach 2,000 notes. Maybe I’ll share a special drawing!

WikiHouse Unveils World’s First Two-Storey Open-Source House at London Design Festival | Via

WikiHouse, the open-source platform for designing and sharing house designs that anyone can be manufacture and assemble in days with no construction skills, has unveiled ‘ 4.0′ their first ever two-storey design at this year’s London Design Festival. Built by a team of volunteers and costing less than £50,000, the new prototype on display at The Building Centre also demonstrates the possibilities of other open source systems, with the code for the electrics, ventilation system and sensors all available on open-source platforms.

The prototype aims to educate visitors to the London Design Festival about how the WikiHouse works, with the interior layers of the building being exposed in places to show how the CNC-manufactured timber structure fits together, and how it becomes air-tight and waterproof through the use of Tyvek waterproofing and Equitone fibre cement cladding. The building also invites people to explore the rooftop terrace, the first time that a WikiHouse construction has incorporated a second storey.

a practical guide to becoming a true pun master

animeteen:

  1. accept that no pun is actually Good, but that the true nature of a good pun is to be so terrible that it becomes good.
  2. say every pun that occurs to you. i’m so serious about this, sometimes the most well received puns will be ones you considered not saying.
  3. ALWAYS laugh at your own puns, even if nobody else is. (especially if nobody else is.)
  4. know that you are hilarious. puns are a limitless resource and you have taken it as your duty to bring this gift to humanity. you are a hero.
