Trying new things

"Trying New Things"
I'd say so. I'm trying several new techniques out here, and that's why the comic is late. I wanted to try doing something that made production quicker and allows me to put more comics out and possibly move up from a once a week schedule. Wouldn't that be great!

Well I thought of this concept a couple of days ago, and thought guys and gals could relate to being the victims of mood swings, (guys being a bit more indirectly affected, while chicas are the direct victims).

Look out for more comics! I may post one before next thursday, and let me know what you think about the new everything.

"death is a slow business"

indeed it is.
we all have these days at work. at home. during life in general.
they're the moments to be savored, especially when it's finals week.

(i really enjoyed the hand lettering of the funky fonts here. sorry dawn)

page 2.

This is the life of Helena Beckett. Death. Destruction. All with a smile.

She works in a funeral home, which may or may not shed some light on the previous post.
Living Beyond and dead(or)alive are again, a play on words. Keep on the look out for references revealing their meaning.

Cheers guys. Leave comments if you likey (they are the wheaties for lazy artists :D)

1st page

So here is the first page of the comic!
Helena's hair was a real task to ink here, so I hope you enjoy it!

So here is the cover for dead(or)alive. Helena stands here with the reeper's stolen scythe using it for her own devices, whatever they may be. Her outfit was fun to design on a bit of a whim, she always has a fun style: cute, dark, elegant, but playful.

What does everyone think of the choice of visual elements? The graves, church, moon, etc?
Or any thoughts in general?

Well, enjoy! I will update with the next post next week, which will be the first comic.

Welcome everyone!

This is the web comic "dead or alive", which follows Helena Beckett, a 19 year old girl who works at a funeral home. In this story, death is more lively than it seems. Along with poking fun at death and the unfortunate methods to which individuals can sometimes bite it, DoA will focus on existential reflections.

The title, although cliche will be revealed if its meaning is not already evident within the first few posts.

Lastly, please enjoy!
