It's summer! And don't think that because of the sun, the sand, the sexy-almost-naked-people-damn-you-swimsuits that we're surrounded by, that we'll not provide you a new comic today. As Flufflybum told you last week, we're welcoming today Jeffrey Jang for a new illustration AND an illustrated interview. Let's do this :
-Hello Jeff, it's been a while, how are you ?
-I am good! I'm excited to be able to share my art on FMyLife again.
-Speaking of that, why did you decided to do a second round?
-I wanted to do a second round because when I first did it, I got a lot of great feedback and found a lot of people who liked Boximals. I am hoping to do the same again to both new and old faces.
-And why did you choose this particular FML story?
-I chose my FML story because I thought it was pretty terrible and funny at thesame time of how the mother took the $100 to euthanize the dog. I have a dog myself, and I think it'd be great if he could take the situation into his own hands (paws?). I chose to show that in my comic.
-Are you suggesting the dog should committ suicide (consternation, horror, etc. ...)?
-Hahaha no! The dog should punish his owner for making such a silly decision with the money.
-Okay... it's better... What are you working on right now?
-I am very busy with my new job as an illustrator right now, but still have a few projects going on. I am working on developing another group of characters, as well as still looking for freelance design work to do on the side. Maybe I'll get a chance to show those characters on FMyLife some day!
-We'd love to. But tell us more about this new job!
-I'm an illustrator for a company in Vancouver that focuses on developing games for big brands to promote things like movies or tv series. I work on things like icons, interface designs and characters!
-It's pretty great. What are your next projects?
-Most of my time in the future will be on Boximals and hopefully my Cloud Six characters, but like I said the new job is my priority currently so it might take some time. I wish there were more hours in the day.
-We all do. *sigh*. As you're featured on FML, you can say anything you want to the FML audience.. go ahead!
-Thanks to everyone who went and let me know how much they liked Boximals on the Facebook page when the first comic went up. It really encouraged me to keep sticking with Boximals, and to work on other ideas I have. I hope everyone likes the second Boximals comic!
-*hug* We love you too. Thank you very much Jeffrey. Now dear readers don't waste anymore time and go read today's comic :
