I am working on solidifying the characters that will be used in telling many stories in the future. Let me introduce you to some of them them.

Systemz sees the world in a very black and white way. He tends to be able to simplify very complex issues and compartmentalize them into easy to understand abstractions. This is both his strength and weakness. Often his relationship with people is based on CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) model and other protocols.

Gadgetz is into all gadgetry, from the Swiss Army Knife to the Google Glass. He is willing to embrace all new technology and give it a shot. He’s not just a aficionado of gadgets, but also very capable innovator and builder, always thinking of ways to enhance the world through technology. He claims that he is not a believer of the singularity but he seems to lean heavily towards that camp.

Cheph is a very content fellow who loves to eat and cook and share. He cooks to eat and eats to cook and loves to give it away. He’s always seen with something to eat. Although a little bit on the heavier side in stature, he has a very high view of himself and is rarely discouraged even by the constant bantering of his friends.

Nyq is always sick. His medicine of choice is Nyquil. Although he claims to have been able to do great physical feats in his pre-sick life, he’s been sick so long, nobody believes him. He is always wearing a scarf, even in 100+ degree weather because he believes that his neck his weakness.  Often times his “Whatever” attitude comes into the fuzzy realm of brave and brainlessness.

These are the characters of my experimental web comics that started . . . in the year 2006. It was called “Untitled Life Journey“. That is eight years back. My latest entry to this comic was in 2012. I really miss these characters. It’s like seeing old friends again. I desire to start a new series called “Unlimited Life Journeys”. You will notice that the characters have changed a little bit. This picture is in this form for both artistic purposes and also as a tribute to the experimental & rawness of the original comic. It was one of the things I wanted to do before this trial ended.

Another good concept that I didn’t get to finish.  This is very loosely based off of Norman Rockwell’s Astronauts. He has such great composition and story telling in his paintings. The way he positioned the 3 astronauts was so much more dynamic. Should have looked at his picture BEFORE drawing this from memory. I’ve come to the conclusion that I should do reference research BEFORE starting the drawing.
