I know I didn't post this as quickly as I thought I would...working on various comic projects the past 2 weeks has kept me pretty occupied (as well as both kids being sick!)...but I'm gonna get all the FLiP On updates done before the book debuts at Roanoke Valley ComiCon on Nov. 14!
For this installment, I'm gonna discuss "Inhabitionless" and "A Little Twisted".
"Inhabitionless" will be an ongoing feature in FLiP On...showcasing the daily life of our nameless focal point. As the name suggests, he has no inhibitions...and the misspelling of the word lets us know that he makes a habit out of displaying this lack of holding back. He does and says the things we think in the back of our heads, but would never say. A short strip written and drawn by Josh Talley, it's simple yet hilarious!
"A Little Twisted" was one of the first features we decided should be in FLiP On. The name actually sprang from a drawing done by Gabe Talley years ago, which gives us a twist on that old saying "killing two birds with one stone". I didn't want to copy any of the drawings from "A Little Twisted" here, because I feel it will ruin the effect of seeing them on the page, being that they are full page drawings. And two of them will be in FLiP On #1, the previously mentioned by Gabe and Josh's take on "The pen is mightier than the sword". We have other ideas for warping the words of idioms for future installments of "A Little Twisted", so it'll definitely be back.
I'll post a look at "System One" and "Hang in There" in my next installment...
