COCHLEA & EUSTACHIA - Page 42


The story careens in its own direction.

(Please note: For more reasons than I care to list, all the webcomics have been relocated to a new location. Right at this moment, there are still bugs to work out and pages from the old site that will need to be restored. Have patience, please!)

Occasionally, it needs to be repeated: Do not attempt this at home unless you are a professional.

I told you this would happen, but you didn't believe me. WHY DIDN'T YOU BELIEVE ME?

Although the strip may indicate otherwise, I'd like it to be known, despite any readers' assumptions, I am NOT an ass-fetishist. (Not that there's anything wrong with that...)

COCHLEA & EUSTACHIA in their FIRST ANIMATED FEATURE!


It's no secret that I've long wanted to see Cochlea & Eustachia star in their own animated series. Rather than wait for someone else to take on the task, I've decided to do it myself. I am very slow at learning to use the animation software, but I'm confident with time I will be producing some decent cartoons soon enough.

This video is a very simple piece of experimental animation to get a feel for what the cartoons will eventually look like. It's primitive and a bit clunky, but promising. Enjoy!

ECTOPIARY RESUMES!


Three years have passed, but ECTOPIARY is back!

IT has been a long while, but I've decided to try and pick the storyline up again. Many parts of the website are still out-of-date, and it will take a few months before I can re-format the previous 115 pages. Any and all feedback regarding the website is much appreciated!

Also, I've altered the PATREON site to reflect that I'm now drawing two comic strips on regular basis. (Not to mention the DELIA, the collaboration between my wife, Krissy Dorn, and myself) If you've been waiting for an impetus to show your support, this would a wonderful time to start!

Because I am dividing my time between these various cartooning projects (not including my day-job and a few secret projects) I cannot promise a regularly-occuring update schedule. Most likely, I'll be alternating between posting a page of ECTOPIARY and COCHLEA & EUSTACHIA as I complete them.

Another page completed! I'm not exactly 100% thrilled with it, but it gets the job done.

The search resumes! This page emerged faster than its predecessor. I am pleased with it. Hopefully, you will likewise find it pleasing?

It's hard to believe it took me THREE WEEKS to draw this page. Am I slowing down in my old age?

A Comfortable World of Goo

I’ve often said that “everybody and their pet monkey has a rock band.” Occasionally, I will doodle around on a guitar or cheap synthesizer. Sometimes, I will even go so far as to record myself making these noises. The ultimate hubris would be for me to post these recordings online and sell them to people. This, I have done. Listen to my caterwauling and stupid lyrics amidst the gristle an inept guitar playing. Now available at my newly created band camp page. I challenge you to enjoy this!

It has been a tough winter with lots of real-life complications and interruptions. Consequently, my buffer of comic pages has vanished. Keeping a regular weekly schedule of C&E updates is currently unrealistic. Naturally, I'll do my best to keep these posts appearing on a regular basis. However, for the time being, I'll just post pages as they are completed.

Here's another page that, for some mysterious reason, took weeks to render. Can you guess why?

Also, some of the background details are a nod to the talented Thomas Stetson, whose work has inspired more pages of C&E than I can count.

Announcing DELIA - A new webcomic collaborative by Hans Rickheit and Krissy Dorn!

Greetings!

My wife, Krissy Dorn and I have been working on this comic project for awhile. I had made a promise on the Patreon site that when it hit $50 per week, I would start posting it online as a regular webcomic. At the moment, the Patreon fund is $27.50, so I don’t think it would be that much of a stretch to achieve that goal.

Yes, DELIA filled with cute, fuzzy squirrels. Will this be a heartwarming tale to stand the ages and become the next Disney blockbuster feature film; or will it be another weird Hans Rickheit product filled with perversion, drug abuse and gratuitous violence? We’ll just have to wait and see!

This is your chance to help this book become a reality! pledge now, and if the milestone goal is reached, I’ll start posting pages before the week is up!


Here are the first five pages of the book as a teaser. Many more have already been drawn. Aren’t you just dying to read them all? To make a pledge just go to my Patreon page : https://www.patreon.com/user?u=432003

I've done my research on the internet, and I can state without fear of contradiction that this is precisely were they come from.

It's a useful trope that I use whenever I get stuck in the course of plotting out a storyline to stick something up his/her ass. Almost never fails.

Another page in which the struggle to get decent results continues. It's mysterious to me why I have these battles from time to time. On those rare occasions when the drawing is going well, I get a pleasing "buzzing" sensation  at the base of my skull. This was not one of those times. Ah, well. Please enjoy, anyway.

More Patreon Stuff

I've added some Milestone Goals to my Patreon Campaign. Hopefully, this will fire up some enthusiasm.

If the Patreon makes it up to $50, I will start posting another webcomic to run concurrently alongside C & E called DELIA. This one os a collaboration between me and my talented wife Krissy Dorn.

If it achieves the $300 Milestone Goal, I will be able to quit my day-job and resume the long-dormant ECTOPIARY webcomic! Please make this possible!

For some mysterious reason, I was struggling with this page. In spite of every effort to the contrary, the girls still appear to be stiff and unnatural. There was a lot of cursing and crumpled paper emanating from my drawing board that day. Hopefully, future pages will look better.

I decided that the big guy's name is Fronky. That was the name of George Orwell's imaginary friend when he was a small child.

By the way, if you hadn't heard, I've started a PATREON campaign for my webcomic! I would be really grateful if you contributed! Although the site might give you the impression that the minimum necessary pledge is $1, you can decide to give any amount you choose - even a 25¢ weekly payment is gratefully received and will give you access to the same benefits of other Patreon contributors!
