Wow the wonders of what the school of Graphic Design
at Central TAFE
is doing for me.
I designed this in less than an hour and am pleased to say that I have plans to bring back Sonic Comic dramas in a more 'legally safe'
I was warned about the dangers of posting full comic scans based off my favourite comic series/publications in the past when producing Sonic Comic Dramas - and now I asked myself that there must be another way to keep creative fans, like myself and friends alike, entertained.
And so after putting a halt to SCD operations in the past 4 months (in which I could have completed three of them by now
) I decided to take a break and think of a solution.
As of late I've become a big fan of the oldschool 1970's American radio plays
back in the day it was their form of entertainment - TV's weren't invented just yet!
) and the channel that I'm listening to at the moment is called MYSTERY THEATRE (hence the origins of the name to this logo
). Seriously CBS's Radio Mystert Theatre is a goldmine of classic entertainment, I'm starting to learn more about the history and culture of America's love of mystery, suspense and thriller programs of the 70's. If you would like to check it click on this link
So far I've listened to 10 episodes and plan on listening to the rest of the shows - a total 1399 of them!!
I feel that I can learn a lot from these shows, not only will I be able to understand how drama works for the listening audience but also I can catch up on my much needed nourishment of telling good stories - a useful skill for any illustrator planning to do comics/children's books/story-boarding for animation.
Instead of reading books (which I'm not too strong on, but I should really read once in a while darn nam it!
) I can listen to radio dramas and build up on my vocab and understanding of characterization and such.
Anyways at this point of time I'm going to be doing all Sonic Comic Dramas in oldschool radio play format
- but with an extra special twist
- I'll be having characters from the Sonic Universe play as host (it's gonna be Sonic mainly, duh!
) and also encourage listeners to post in their questions to ask to specific characters of the Sonic Archie universe and get a reply! This is much like what I've seen of SONICSONG182's very successful 'Ask the Sonic Heroes'
So yeah that's the plan for now, no concrete idea on the release date of the first episode of MOBIAN THEATRE but be sure to know that it'll involve a very scrambled
issue - "Oh ho ho ho ho hooooh!" (oh gosh how many more clues do you need?
