Welcome to another Inksgiving event! We thank you so much for your ongoing support, you keep our little comic afloat and it means a lot to us! This event is aimed to give us both a boost so please send us ink during the event for bonus.

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. 💖
I got good and bad news. The good news is: here is a work in progress for the new Niels Feynman cover and I’m sorry to say, the bad news is you may not get a new page this week as my friend Jun Fender who does the line art has a shoulder injury.
I will try and make a page that fits with the rest of the comic, but if I cannot match her style we will take a break until she gets better. Also if I do the whole page by myself this may mean less content for Ernest or less events in the Facebook group.
We’ll see what we will do; just wanted to give you a heads up some changes may occur.
It’s been a busy time for me, I haven’t had the time to do a vlog like I promised, sorry. Still I know some of you wanted to keep in touch and since we all have our lives, it’s difficult. Kids, health problems, family problems, miscellaneous problems. In the end I wanted to thank all you you who have helped me and continue to help me. I know some of you can’t anymore, hope you get well soon and see better days. Hugz!
For those that want to stay in the loop but have only 3min to read things here is the summary:
And last but not least I’ve opened a shop on Itch.io and uploaded some freebies there. I will continue to upload some more stuff there as well as the games when they are done. I think it’s easier to find my stuff there than on Patreon. Let me know which format you prefer. I prefer using Patreon because it’s easier for me to keep track and give you your rewards when donating. You can donate to me on Itch just like on Twitch.
