Stok and Hark #018 [Mar. 10th, 2007|03:54 pm]

About Stok and Hark #018 I have to say the following: No, grandma Rose is not groping Stok. She’s shaking her stick figure-ish fist.

Stok and Hark #015, #016 and #017 [Jan. 19th, 2007|04:36 pm]

I've kept from posting Stok and Hark #015, #016 and #017, because I felt that it would be better if you read this miniature story arc in one go. Therefore I waited until I had finished all three comics before putting them online. I hope people will enjoy it.

The joke in #015 is the reason I came up with the shady salesman. I thought it was funny in an absurd way and the shady salesman turned out to be useful for introducing Grandma Rose in the comic. I admit that Jeff Smith's Bone was an inspiration when I had to name this character. I love Bone. ^_^

Stok and Hark #013 and #014 [Dec. 3rd, 2006|03:46 pm]

It took me so long to make a new Stok and Hark comic, not because I'm out of ideas (I have plenty), but I was faced with a gap between Stok and Hark #012 and the ideas in my head. Many different ideas to fill that gap have passed and didn't make it, but when I finally got one that felt right I had to draw it right away. Now that the gap is filled with #013 (yes, sometimes only one comic can block your way) I can continue with the story.

I don't feel very certain about the English grammar in the first panel. I'm not certain it should be "I heard you've adopted a child." in stead of "I've heard you adopted a child." Perhaps someone else will enlighten me.

#014 isn't really the greatest piece of art, but so is the rest of the comic. Nobody will lose any sleep over it. I do like the background. So empty with mocking festivity.

Stok and Hark #012 and a new #002 [Oct. 21st, 2006|05:24 pm]

I have replaced Stok and Hark #002 with a new comic, because I feel this fits the story much better. I've mentioned before that the old #002 didn't completely agree with me and now I've fixed it to my satisfaction.

About #012 I don't have much to say when it concerns the story. I've tried something different while making the comic (zooming in), but I don't think it a difference can be seen as the images on the website are really small. It might make a difference if I ever want to print the comics. If I ever want to do that.

Stok and Hark #011 [Oct. 4th, 2006|09:34 pm]

Drawing Stok and Hark comics really makes me happy from time to time. I don’t know if anyone likes the jokes or the story, but drawing the faces make me smile. A little bit of taking care of my own wishes.

Stok and Hark #011 was inspired by the fact you can adopt almost anything these days. Trees, zoo animals, villages and towns, street tiles and building bricks, you name it and you can probably adopt it.

Stok and Hark #010 brings the return of the shady sales man.

I need to update more often.

Stok and Hark #009 [Aug. 24th, 2006|09:44 am]

Stok and Hark #009 is one of those situations in which the punch line works better in English. Or in other words I feel the English version has a punch line and the Dutch version simply continues the story without something witty.
I could have let Stok say the English text in the last panel of the Dutch version. Most people understand what "make love, not war" means, but for some reason unknown to me, I didn't.

The story continues.

First painted feather [Aug. 14th, 2006|03:44 pm]

A while ago I joined the featherartists community and though it’s a bit quiet over there, I’ve not lost my interest in trying something new. I must say that painting feathers is very satisfying to me, combining different techniques in one art form.
My last acrylics painting was over 1,5 years ago and I had to get used to working with acrylics again. It was a bit harder than I remembered, especially because I’ve never worked this small before, but as time and the painting progressed things became smoother.

It’s painted on a pigeon feather I found (cheap!). I have several larger turkey feathers, but I didn’t want to ruin them with a first try and the small size does have its charm. I liked the exercise and I hope I’ll make more painted feathers in the future. Perhaps I’ll combine it with some chain mail weaves.

Link to the feather.

New Oekaki images [Aug. 13th, 2006|01:49 pm]

The oekaki gallery has been updated with old and new oekaki images. Some of them are very old (made in 2004) and or very new (made yesterday). I thought it would be nice to have this gallery reflect different subjects, styles, colour schemes, etc.

Stok and Hark #007 and #008 [Aug. 10th, 2006|01:15 pm]

I felt good this morning, so I’ve made two Stok and Hark comics. #007 is not funny. I’m well aware of that. The joke is supposed to come much later and I hope I’ll be able to pull it off. We’ll see about that. Just for clarity, because many seem to have trouble to distinguish between the different characters: Lex is the figure with the watch and Lex is not Stok. The shady salesman is not Hark with a coat. His head is also a rectangular shape, but I’ve hoped to have made it different enough to make him not look like Hark. As much as that is possible with simple stick figures.

#008 comes at a weird point in my life. I’ve made up the subject of the story line in Stok and Hark months ago, but now that it is finally showing the top of its head, several acquaintances have a newborn baby or are starting a family. Which reminds me I still need to congratulate one of them. ^_^
And I think Stok is really scary in a way... Perhaps because she looks a bit like me.
