And So It Begins…

And So It Begins… published on No Comments on And So It Begins…

As hinted in the post for the first comic, this is (hopefully) Random Doodles’ new permanent home! I know I’ve briefly tried to pull together a website for the comic in the past, but I suppose I would too busy (playing World of Warcraft) to follow through.

With Random Doodles having over 1000 comics (!) it’s going to take awhile to get them all up here. Right now I plan on updating the site with new comics every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday until I get the site working (and looking) like I want it to. Once that’s done, I can step up the web preparations of the comics and hopefully update every day of the week until the backlog is caught up with the present!

But in the meantime, the site will likely not look pretty. At all. While I’m pretty good at coding Java, I’m not so good at editing CSS styles, or design in general (wait why am I drawing a comic again?). So the website will look like a trainwreck until I straighten out the theme.

On that note — anyone familiar with working with Inkblot? :)

After 7+ years of procrastinating, hemming, hawing, and more procrastinating, Random Doodles is finally getting a (hopefully) permanent home on the internet. And behold — this is the first comic! Yey.

These early comics were drawn during the winter/spring of 2005, and unlike the vast majority of Random Doodles, were published in UW-Madison’s other student newspaper, The Daily Cardinal. At the time, I had thought their comic section to be superior to the offering at The Badger Herald (but how quickly that would change), so I submitted my work to be shown on a ‘rotating schedule’ which really meant ‘random and not-guaranteed’.
