This is a post.

I just wanted to make a post for the sake of not letting this LJ go unposted for too long.

Nothing really new to report. Started a new job today; its nothing special, just a receptionist job. Seems like I'll have a lot of down time as the old receptionist who is training me advised me to bring a book. Perhaps no one would object if I brought a sketchbook instead?

I have an idea for a new comic. It would be a lot less daunting than the FF6c. I would begin with a chapter of 30 pages with a stand-alone story. If I liked the result, I could expand on it. I want it to be a "Cooking Comic", if such a genre exists. It'll be set in ancient Tarraco, part of the Roman Empire. So far I am just hashing out a script and making preliminary character sketches.

Finally, let me share a comic I really enjoy. Red String has been running since 2003 and I have been following it since 2006. Its a sweet (and long) story about love in all its forms, centering mainly on teenage love and choosing one's path in life. The art is good; the writing, very good, I think. And it even has some characters who enjoy cooking! That was partially what gave me the inspiration to make a cooking comic. I've even met the author/artist at Acen; she's very sweet.

That's all for now.

I'd say cooking comics exist. Like Iron Wok Jan.

Cooking comics do exist (in Japan, there's manga for everything. Everything), and OMG I LOVE RED STRING. *_*

Now, that's true. I guess I just haven't seen a lot of them.
And yes! Another Red String fan!

Of course there's a cooking genre of comics. Japan has several including Oshinbo.

Making a random plug for another online comic, Gypsy! which is an offbeat, but good comic. It doesn't really fall into a genre of its own either. (http://girlamatic.com/gypsy/2005/10/03/cover/)
