Even More Videogame Bear Comics

I'm still making single page comics related to videogames. Its fun thinking of ideas and most of the ones I've posted on my instagram gaming account have managed to gain a bit of a small following. I've not given up on my dream of making a complete story either.

Single Page Comics

 I'm still making a lot of single page comics and uploading them to my instagram lately, its encouraging since at least 2,000 people are engaging with the content I produce.... I just need to keep them coming. (and work on making better jokes and writing.)

Still trying to make my own comics, makes me realise I really want to try making something with a story, I think its time to start using more text and words.

VideoGameBear

Thought my blog was finally due another update. I've had a little bit of success recently by sharing my boring, nerdy opinions about videogames on Instagram. Feeling inspired I also uploaded some art to accompany my game page-  the bear has become the videogame bear! I've even managed to sell a few art prints!


The account is still heavily focused on showing off a videogame collection, but I'm determined to turn that around this year and upload more drawings. If your interested in seeing it yourself, the account name is @VideogameBear, all art art related posts are under the RetroGameBear hashtag.

Gold Key Comic inspiration

I've been getting a lot of encouragement to draw more comics lately (Bear comics in particular) and I want to give it another go.

I drew a lot of inspiration from Gold Key children's comics released in the 1960's which published a lot of comics based on popular television cartoon characters of the time (Flintstones, Hong Kong Phooey etc) So I wanted to go for a bit of a retro look:

New updates

Its been a while since I've updated my blog so I wanted to make a fresh start since its the new year at last! I've been busy with a couple of fun small projects such as greetings cards and calendars-








But really, I'd like to dedicate more time to making comic strips again- especially since I'm getting a lot of encouragement from people within the industry, I've already started on a few...
