Hi guys! I’m back from my self-inflicted winter break and I have to say I’m pretty glad to be drawing Paranormal Petunia again. While I was away I finished the first printed issue of Paranormal Petunia, which will be available very soon. So I’m very excited about that!
I’m also going to try posting Petunia two times a week. Maybe Tuesday and Saturday? Does that sound okay? I would start doing that next week if I can keep up with the drawing and my other projects. I’m a busy dude! Anyway, I was inspired by my good friend and artist/author, Pat Nietupski (AKA Floyd Fox), who does the new fantasy/adventure comic Legends of Fomora and the tried and true geeky jokester comic Unnatural 20. We were hanging out last night looking through each others Magic the Gathering cards and he was talking about how excited he is about drawing and posting comics. It was super inspiring and has rekindled some of my love of this stuff. It’s easy to just feel like you HAVE to post this stuff and forget that you’re doing it because you love it. And I do love it! I can’t wait to show you what happens to Petunia.
On that subject, I also took this winter break to take some time and think about where this story is going. I had a lot of plans for it already, but I really wanted to know how the story would end (more or less) and also think about Petunia as a character. I am happy to say I now have a TON of new plot points and have pretty much figured out the whole thing.
I’d like to say that Paranormal Petunia is going to quickly become a lot more intense soon. I feel like the first section of the story was fairly low-key. I was trying to introduce the setting and characters without rushing into the heavy stuff. Rest assured, you can plan on seeing some serious paranormal stuff happening very soon. There will be emotions, darker themes, and a lot more.
About this page… this is not just a goof. This will be going somewhere. A cheating boyfriend? Petunia isn’t a relationship counselor… This client knows that right? Also, Yerba. Petunia doesn’t like Yerba. It was nice anyway, Sara.
Let me know if you have any thoughts about the story. I’d love to hear what you think.
