Odori Park, by Chris Watkins Odori Park - A webcomic comedy of culture shock in love, life, and family, by Chris Watkins


:: Posts Tagged ‘Webcomic Alliance’ ::

Today, Todd McElmurry announced Odori Park as the Pick of the Month over at the Webcomic Alliance. It was extremely flattering and uplifting to see my comic described from his perspective. Like a lot of cartoonists, I often feel like the work I do is put out there only in a narrow space without much outside light. It’s great to hear that others see and appreciate the comic.

Later this month, Todd will be posting an interview with me that he conducted, which was a lot of fun. Please check out the Webcomic Alliance site, and keep your eyes peeled for that interview in a couple weeks!

Earlier in the month, I mentioned that Odori Park had been selected as the Pick of the Month over at the Webcomic Alliance site. The initial “pick” isn’t the only part of being a Pick of the Month. Todd McElmurry, master of the Picks, has also done a brief interview with me, which I would love for you to pop over and read. Todd’s questions go into background and personal areas like influences, work setup, and who should play me in the movie of my life (which, in retrospect, seems like it ought to be animated). Please enjoy!

Got a cross-town plug to share today: I wrote a guest article for the Webcomic Alliance (purveyor of fine articles and podcasts about webcomics and the creators who love them), and thought you might enjoy a read. It’s called:

Mindfulness, Flow and the Comics Connection

I’ve been working through a number of productivity issues with comics making over the years, and this past year has been a banner one for learnings and synthesis. I’ve been waiting for a good excuse to share some of what I’ve been putting together, so the summer run of guest articles at WA was a perfect chance. (Thanks to Chris Flick, Byron Wilkinson, and the others at the WA for pulling this together.)

I have plenty more thoughts about productivity, mindfulness, and creative flow, so if you have a read and enjoy the piece, please let me know–or better yet, add your thoughts to the conversation–and I may do a follow-up article.
