As you may have been aware, Transpose Operator hasn’t had a new page up in awhile. There’s quite a few reasons for this, but I haven’t been able to make an announcement on the site for awhile. While there’s several factors, one of them being crazy life stuff, I’m not gonna waste my time going over that and instead tell you the most important thing of all, which is’ The Future of Transpose Operator’.
FIRST OF ALL:
TRANSPOSE OPERATOR IS NOT DEAD
Right now I’m currently working on several projects to turn into pitches and send to publishers, Transpose Operator is one of those. You may or may not be aware of the fact that for most of this year I’ve been in Los Angeles, I originally came here for a comics internship at Archaia. My time there taught me a lot about the business end of the comics industry, one of the most important things was about how you get your comics out into the world. I met a ton of people who I could talk with about comics and stories and they gave me a lot of different perspectives on what I had been doing, and what I should be doing.
More than anything, I want comics to be my full-time job, so I’ve been working towards that. Right now I’m working on a pitch called ‘Shadow’ (not the official title), Once I’m able to send it out into the world I’ll be working on my next one, and after that, Transpose Operator. You may wonder why I’d be choosing to tackle Transpose Operator as the 3rd pitch in my current line-up, after all I’ve been marketing it for years and have so much work behind me already for it, however it’s precisely because of that that I need to take more time for it. It’s a big story, and needs a lot of work, in fact by the time I’m finished with this stage of Transpose Operator it may be quite different. The characters, world, and atmosphere will still be the same, but the plot and writing will be re-vamped. If all goes well I’ll be able to publish it as a physical book for you to hold and read! The ultimate plan was always to publish Transpose Operator for print, and my current experiences have taught me better ways to go about doing that.
SO! You may be wondering about the fate of this site- It’s not going anywhere! In fact when I finish the pitch pages for Transpose Operator they’ll go up on the site! Depending on how things go with the pitch I may even start from those pitch pages to continue the webcomic in that way. We will see, that’s in the future so things could change! Hopefully I’ll be able to announce that it’s been picked up for print! However regardless of how those things turn out, I want to tell the story of Transpose Operator, it will happen, so don’t fear, it’s not going anywhere.
I’ll be posting Transpose Operator news here of course, also on MY BLOG, TWITTER, TUMBLR, DEVIANT ART, and various other places including the TRANSPOSE OPERATOR FB GROUP too, so be on the lookout! Feel free to message me through the site or email me if you have any questions, or just want to talk. I’m especially attentive on twitter and it’s usually the fastest way to reach me online.
I’ll see you all soon! I can’t wait for Transpose Operator to enter this next stage and I’ll be sure to keep you all posted along the way!
