Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

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 Bunny merchandise 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.

Hugz,

New cover and a shoulder injury

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.

Niels Feynman
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.
 
Take care and I wish you a lovely day!

Happy New Year! And good news everyone!

Hi everyone and Happy New Year! Hope you had a good time. As for me several things have happened and I will try to go over some of them.

Firstly Chris Weiher from Watch Me Work will be featuring me for a whole month. For those of that don’t know WMW is a platform where streamer artists gather to show their work, so if you are already streaming on Youtube or Twitch you can also stream there.
wmw
What Chris is trying to do is bring quality content together and if you also make tutorials then be sure to ask for his payed program. If you have 1000 followers already it will definitely help your chances to be picked but it’s not a requirement.

You can read my comic series here on Tapastic: https://tapastic.com/hisameartwork/series

And another great news is that the tipping system is active now on my Tapastic account! Thank you to all those who have already started to tip me, I’m super happy this system is back, it’s really easy to use and a great way for those short on cash to support their favorite artists.

tiping

If you are also an artists, all you have to do to activate the option to be tiped yourself is, e-mail the staff and ask for it. Be nice and give your account link so they can find you easily and in a few days you should get a reply.

Aaaand lastly on my list of news this has been a good year for us, of progress and collaboration. I want to give a special thanks to @JunFender for helping me on my comic by doing the lineart and to @Qaryouti for consulting on the Cambridge history and architecture.

And in this year I will do my best to finish what I couldn’t last year.

Take care everyone and Happy New Year!

New comic series this Sunday on Tapastic!

The story follows the adventure of Niels Feynman a half Chinese half Dutch boy, who lives in 24th century Cambridge and who is passionate about science. Niels and his companions, Erwin and Marie, will travel back in time to meet his hero Stephen Hawking at the notorious Time Traveler’s party and from there he will visit Isaac Newton. The main theme of the story is the passion for learning and discovering.

Are you ready for an adventure? You can read it for free here on Tapastic!

The idea for the story came from my husband who is a physicist and an avid gamer. Until we can make this story into a game we offer you a comic to read and get familiar with the characters and the world they inhabit.

On this project my friend Jun Fender is helping me by making the lineart. We stream live the making of the pages and you can find the recordings on Youtube. You can also find tutorials and freebies here on my blog and on Patreon.
