It's been a while

So I haven't really been on here in a long time. I finished up the comic I had been an inker on and haven't been able to line up jobs beyond those. I opened an Esty store to see art works and crafts. Sadly also one of our oldest cats passed away. Overall a very sad time.

Ok So I haven't been on this blog in a while, and I know the crawler bots that are 99.9% of my traffic have been missing me. I had to finish up an inking job for a guy. It was a challenging job and I loved every minute of it. I'm currnetly getting together a portfolio to sent to the comic companys that still take submissions (so not the big 2), and we will see where that far as my review vidios go I did the channel awesome tryout, and did not make the cut. Didn't expect too though. I'm thinking of retooling my show to be a more vlog format because 60% of my review vids have been claimed by youtube auto copyright software and out of the ones I disputed only Fox agreeded it was fair use. So kudos to Fox.

So i'm woking.

I'm currently inking a group of pages for a guy. Which is why I haven't done much else lately. Once those are done I plan to send off inking submissions to the few places that still accept mail submissions. I would love to be able to get my stuff in front of Marvel or DC but as I live in the middle-ish of the country and am broke I can't go to the cons where they accept submissions. Sigh.

Somehow I never got my Star Wars Quickie up on here. So here it is.

So I had a movie all picked out to review for Christmas. Got a Santa hat and everything. But the I also got a sinus infection. So I'm gonna hold off on that film. I'm currently looking for my next target and I'm inking a sample page for a 12 page independant job. Most importantly though The Mushroom Murders trade paperback is available on Amazon. I inked it and it's great.

My next Review

I have finished filming my review of The Void and will begin editing it. So happy day everybody!

Sunday, September 22, 2013

Well that went by like a flash

So summer is over and I did nothing. Time just got away from me (I blame minecraft). But I'm back at it now, last week I spent almost all my free time claning and organizing, and getting my studio back in shape to film. Then I continued working on the void script. This film is difficult to slog through, but I'm back at it now!

A full month of phlem!

Ok so here is an update, I've been fighting a nasty and persistent sinus infection for the last month and just finished my second run of antibiotics. So Between my paying jobs and feeling like total ass I have accomplished very little in the last 30 days, and this last week I got a minecraft account which doesn't help. Anyhoo I do appear to be recovering and plan to get back to work reviewing soon. Next up The Void!

Sunday, June 9, 2013

Well that was highly unpleasant...

I was watching the movie for the next review, and jotting down note, but then this last week I got so sick. It's been just over a year since I went to the doctor. I have been in relative good health for that time, then this last week I just fell apart. I came home with Steroids, and Antibiotics, and Narcotics... oh my. I'm starting to feel better now and will get back to the unforgiving mistress that is comedy.

Bullet time issue 4

I just finished inking Bullet Time issue 4! Here is a page of it to see how awesome it is!

Hedgehog Studios reviews: I am Omega.

Hedgehog Studios 2nd episode is up where I take a look at the 2007 not Will Smith version of not I am legend, I am Omega!

Hedgehog Studios Reviews: Black Death

1st episode is finally up on youtube!


So I finished my review of Black Death and submitted it to Blip, and was rejected due to low quality. I was afraid that would happen as my camera is not so great. So before I can re-submit I'll need an HD camera. I then went to put my review on youtube but I would need to verify my account as the video is longer than 10 minutes, but that part of the site isn't working.... I just can't win.

So I made a title card

So I made this just now, see it's all coming together just like I said in the last post.

Update and such

As I said in my last post I was going to work on the projects I had let fall to the side. That's what I have been doing. I have been inking the stack of pages I have for Bullet Time issues 4 and 5, and I completed my script for the black death review. I have been learning premiere elements, and have picked the films for my second and third reviews... I think. Now I just have to harvest the clips I'll need, film the review and edit it. I'll admit starting from nothing knowledge wise on this has had a steeper learning curve than I was expecting. I assume as I get to where I know what I'm doing this process will go faster.

Finally finished issue 5 of Mushroom Murders. It is done and now I fell I can move on to other things that I have let languish by the wayside, like my review of Black Death. Which I will now finish writing the script for, and getting back to work on issue 4 of Bullet Time. I also have to clean my house and get rid of some of the clutter. But enough about that you should be coming here for the funny, not just updated to my crap so here is a little holiday song:

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
a partridge in a pear tree.
On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.
On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me.
Three french hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.
On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
Four colly birds, three french hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.
On the fifth day of Christmas I said to my true love,

Wow I missed October

Here's that further update, the amount of detail crammed into the last 10 pages of Mushroom Murders issue 5 was insane. I'm now on the final story page and waiting on the cover to arrive to ink it then the whole thing is done (At least my part of it). So after that on to working on Bullet Time, my first review video, all the household stuff I've neglected for the past month, and Christmas. I'm not  going to get to sleep until 2013 am I?

Crunch Time

Hey There. So I'm almost done writing my first review script, and have learned a bit of the editing software. now I have to buckle done on issue 5 of Mushroom Murders. We want to have issue 5 done in early November so the trade can be out in time for the holidays.
As I stand now 11 pages down 18 to go on the inks. So that will be consuming my time for the foreseeable future. Further updates as they warrant!

Friday, September 14, 2012

Ok, State of thing...

OK, creatively here's where I stand on my projects. I continue to truck forward on my inking for Bullet time issues 4 and 5 and Mushroom murders issue 5. At some point I plan to make some new strips for But that may still be a ways off. The writing for my first review is about half done, and most of the writing for my first "open letter" video is done. I am still working on learning premiere elements 10 So if any knows any good yet free online tutorials that would be awesome. As yet I haven't been able to break 10 twitter followers (@jaconey1) but that's ok. So that's where I stand.

Well, welly well. (and a preview)

So I'm dreadfully behind on my inking, but I've been working to catch up. This does mean my first video will continue to be delayed so in the unlikely chance that anyone has come here more than once to see if I've put a vid up yet....sorry. But Mushroom Murders issue 3 is up for download now at drive thru comics. (only .99) Also here's a special treat. The inked 1st page of book 5. So keep checking back.

I know...I know...

So by now you're thinking Jaconey, What the hell man? You promised us videos. Where are they. We are not entertained....WE ARE NOT ENTERTAINED!!!!! I couldn't agree more, and here's the holdup. I want to provide you the best video I can and so the writing is taking longer than I thought. Also I'm taking extra time to refine the script and make it the best I can because I don't want the first episode to suck. Also the editing software that I got has a bit of a higher learning curve than I anticipated. Remember when software came with instruction books? And the last and most important hold up, it's hot here. Averaging 103 during the day and my space I set up to film doesn't have air conditioning. I had foreseen this as an issue when I was setting up, and already decided to get a window unit. however that won't be able to happen until next summer. So there you have it my list of excuses. They are all true, but are still excuses. So patients, Hedgehog Studios is coming .... possibly even soon..... I think.....

Weekend Update

So I'm inking, and writing. I've begun writing the script for my first video. The second video is already written. So once the first one is written then all that is left is to film the two and learn to use the editing software. That shouldn't be hard ......right?

Slacking off

Not really, but I feel like I should be accomplishing so much more lately. The house is a disaster area, but I've been going through stuff and getting rid of some things so underneath it's getting cleaner I guess. I've done a great deal in the garage, which is where I'm setting up my filming space. I finished repairing and painting the piece of furniture I rescued from an apartment dumpster. It came out nice, if the people who tossed it could see it they would want it back. They are shit out of luck. I also acquired a bookcase that someone put out with a "Free" note on it. Its nice, not prefab. Solid wood but bad paint job. They had tried to "antique" it and did a terrible job. I'm gonna give it a light sanding,  paint it red and use it as a pantry in the kitchen. Why you ask? Because the people who designed this house thought closet and cabinet space was of the devil. I've also been doing some yard work beyond the standard mowing and what not. Inking you ask? Why yes, but not nearly enough. I also need to update my paperwork for paying job. The only thing I've come close on is my filming space is 95% done, and I filmed a first test for sound and lighting. Now the cool item for this post

Geek and Sundry is the youtube channel for The Guild, Dark Horse Motion Comics and Wil Wheatons Table Top. It's excellent programming and Table top is better than I ever would have expected it to be.

That's all for now.

So what have you been up too?

As for me I've been busy. I finished issue 4 of Mushroom Murders. started issue 5 and continued on issue 4 of Bullet Time. Only 64 more pages and both projects will be complete. I got (I think) everything I need to repair my set piece for the making of Hedgehog Studios videos. This week I need to start video testing to see if the camera will be close enough for it's mic to be enough or if I'll have to buy a clip on or whatever. Hobbies are hard work. Finally I have nothing funny to say myself today so I'll leave you with a link to the badass webcomic Spinnerette. It's good, so go read it, preferably while you're at work. STICK IT TO THE MAN!!!!!!!!

I know, I know....

So here's how everything is going here. I was way sick for the last week and got nothing done. Nothing. I hate that. So now I'm trying to catch up. I'm inking pages of Bullet time and Mushroom murders. Mushroom murders #4 is almost done. I did take a couple of hours out to learn to make rifftrax DVD's. Both because I wanted them and the programs used will give me more video editing flexibility....I think. I now have everything I need to do video reviews. I bought the paint fro the desk last night. Now I have to repair the desk, as it was second hand (OK I picked it up next to a dumpster, are you happy?) and build the set. I have assembled the studio lights. That's where everything stands. Now back to work to get a little bit more done before gaming tonight.
