We’re happy to announce we’ve concluded chapter 2 of our comic series Niels Feynman’s time traveling adventures! We’re going to have a short break while we share some of the awesome fanart we’ve been sent and after that we’ll resume with new story pages from chapter 3.
You can still send us your fanart, we’re always happy to see it. And if you want to see the pages ahead of time then follow us on Youtube as we stream how we make the pages, every week.
And for those of you who are new to our blog here are some samples from the past year.
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day!
Halloween is my favorite holiday so for this Niels Feynman holidays special I added some extra easter eggs and references from the genera of cosmic horror and sci-fi as well as other artworks of mine. Hope you enjoy and I wish you the best!
So I like to keep my holiday specials detached temporal from the main story line so that I can showcase funny events and characters that will appear in future comic issues.
In the upper left we have the Mendls, cousins of Alfred Feynman, Niel’s dad. The family tree is available to my Patreon supporters, so if you wish to support us financially you will get access to extra content and behind the scenes materials. They are costumed as the gods Odin and Kali, the original superheros so to speak and Alfred is just wearing a Halloween pumpkin sweater. You can also see uncle Aubrey Mendl giving Marie a chocolate muffin which shouldn’t be much of an issue since Marie is a cyborg corgi and is much tougher than a normal dog. Also can you guess as what famous dog she’s dressed as?
On the upper right I drew the O’Haras, their family will appear in the comic story where Niels goes back in time to visits the famous admiral Zheng He. But more on that once we manage to finish the current story line: Niels visits Isaac Newton.
Up on the stairs we have Niels costumed as the renowned physicist Richard Feynman, while Ingrid is costumed as a firefighter and on the last step is Darsha costumed as Mary Jackson, one of N.A.S.A.’s engineers that helped the Americans win the space race.
Bellow we have Evangeline and Erwin discussing Erwin’s costume choice. Now I had a lot of fun making this relationship dynamic and referencing G.R.R. Martin and Robert W. Chambers ‘ works. “The King in Yellow” is a cosmic horror figure featured in Lovecraft‘s and Martin’s works as well and since the action takes place in Cambridge U.K. the most scariest thing to adults is, and probably will continue to be, healthcare bills, hence Erwin’s outfit. Needles to say Eve’s parents who are English don’t find Erwin’s joke funny.
Evangeline is of course dressed as the breaker of chains, the mother and the most bad-ass female super hero since Artemis and Athena.
As for references to my own work you can see a small ad for a sale on Ernest the Blue Bunnymerchandise and a Y.A.N.A. online DLC pack. YANA, Long Feast and LDAD are there series of novels set in steam punk, futuristic and medieval worlds that I’m still working on. The drafts are done and I will polish and publish these books after I finish the Niels Feynman series. So expect a large shared, expansive universe with lots of adventures in the decades to come.
Thank you to everyone for a wonderful year! Thank you for all your support, it means a lot to us and keeps us motivated to continue our story. Also extra story page coming up tomorrow on Tapas so stay tuned. (~_^)
Bellow you can see the step by step process in making the illustration. Lineart done as always by the talented Jun Fender and coloring done by me, while texts will be translated by my friends, see the partner page here.
Thanks for being with us on this amazing journey! Much love!
I’m happy to announce we’re close to celebrating our first anniversary! 🐱🐶👦 🕘🌍 I’ve started publishing the redrawn version on Tapas on the 1st of October last year.
And all the people who have helped in supporting our comic are invited to sign our illustration after I’m done coloring it! It will be published on Tapastic and in the chapter two comic issue so we have something to remember all of you by. Thank you for all your help! It means a lot to us and we’re very happy you’ve enjoyed our comic so far. We hope to continue to entertain you always. 💖
Hi friends! As you may remember from last week Teepublic sponsored my my Black Friday merchandise giveaway. Thank you all for participating, hope you enjoyed it, more giveaway are coming next year so keep your eyes peeled if you want to participate again.
As a European I can definitely relate to the sucky feeling of not being eligible for a giveaway from the USA, but I will try to make international giveaways and if have good sales the coming year that will definitely make things easier, so fingers crossed all goes well!
Jacklyn was kind enough to send us a picture of the shirt she got, and if you’re curious to see the prizes and winners of previous giveaways use my hashtag #HisameOCL on social media to find the posts and pictures.
And thank you again Teepublic for sponsoring my event!
As always I look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions or suggestions on how I can improve the giveaway events feel free to write in the comment section bellow.
