Here it all begins!
Hey guys, Sorry to disappoint but I’ve hit a breaking point with things right now. I am behind on marking in my paying job, and I am behind on my Cloudscape Comic project, and Christmas is rapidly approaching, so basically something has to give and in this case it’s going to be the web comic. I want to have a nice fresh start and not be under the gun and rushing out pages. So I must regretfully announce that ‘Teach English in Japan’ will be on hiatus until the new year. Teach English in Japan will return February 4, 2013. cheers, Jeff Ellis ;
So you might have noticed there is no new comic. I was a bit occupied with the Manga fest and travelling around Tokyo/Yokohama/Kofu/Fujisawa. So here is a picture from my trip, it’s me in front of the Takeda Shingen statue in Kofu. Enjoy! Also, if you met me at the manag fest and are just checking the comic out now, please post a comment or send me an email. cheers, Jeff
Special feature from volume 2, and something I hope will become a regular feature. Jeff
Still running behind. Expect some new postings soon. Cheers Jeff
Hey guys, As you can see, no new comic today. It’s been a pretty hectic week. I did my third studio move of the year, however I think it’s for the best because I am now the first official resident of the Cloudscape Comics HQ. A 24 hrs studio space for the local Vancouver Comics Collective. Anyways excuses aside, I’m putting the finishing touches on volume 2. Here is the cover art coloured by Jonathon Dalton. cheers, Jeff
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving folks! I’m taking a week off but there will be more fun and hijinx next week! cheers, Jeff
Sorry for the delay, but I am taking a summer break this week. Hoping to see you here again when page 100 gets posted.
I dunno how much you guys worry about the time, but today’s comic is going to update in the evening instead of the morning. I had way to much fun at VanCAF. UPDATE: I caught something at VanCAF, and I am just too bagged to wrap up today. I’ll try to get back on schedule next week. Sorry guys.
Well, here I am. Awaiting my flight to Vancouver. Expect a new page next week, sorry guys.
Hey wait! That’s not a comic! Ok you got me, I have failed to get ahead this week, so due to flying to Calgary Friday, and Toronto today I won’t be posting more story. However, here is a pin-up I made while on the show floor in Calgary. Calgary was a fun show with an overwhelming crowd attending. I don’t think I can justify the expense next year, so apologies to all the fine and wonderful folk I met. Especially my hostel mates from Edmonton, Jeff, Jeremy, Cliff and company! Angela Melick of Wasted Talent was in top form at the show and sold out of her book 1! (which I helped produce). The Weregeek crew were a pleasure as always, and they even treated me to a BBQ dinner on Sunday night. Sam Logan and J J McCullough(sp?) were also a pleasure to speak with. Saturday I got to hangout with some Vancouverites and drink delicious blackberry beer. Shout outs to Ed Brisson and Mike and Miriam of Jobnik. Miriam ran the con while in her final term of pregnancy. She survived the con, and I wish her all the best. I also got the spend time with the Guru Kitty gals, and Beth Wagner. Vancouver truly has a great comic scene. I also reconnected with some former students at the show. It was great to see them doing well, working in Graphic Design and using the skills I taught them. One student Jose Rojas is starting his own geek media company, which was very impressive.
