My favorite thing this week.
If you want to learn more about X-Wing Miniatures, the game Lisa and Mike are playing in this storyline of NPC Comic, this X-Wing Miniatures review is great!
These ladies do a great job of concisely explaining the game play and giving opinions. Apparently Starlit Citadel is a Canadian online game store, and they make lots of these great reviews on their youtube channel.
I sketched, inked, and colored this comic in about 2 hours, and compressed the screencap into 6 minutes. This comic can be seen here.
You can see all the making-of videos in this Youtube playlist.
In the “Better Than the Original” edition of the New To You podcast I’ve been recording with my boyfriend John and our buddies, we talked about the board game Risk: Legacy, Sam Cooke’s version of Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ in the Wind, Jeff Buckley’s version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, and the Martin Scorsese film The Departed.
It’s one of my favorite we’ve done so far. You can listen to part 1 and part 2, and check out all the latest on the website.
I am SO happy to tell you that I’m taking NPC back to its original 3-day-a-week schedule. I buckled down during the 1-a-week days, wrote a buffer, and made a schedule for myself that I can keep up with. Thank you for being patient with me this past year. I started NPC while I was freelancing and had a lot of free time between gigs. I was very fortunate last year to start a full time job that I love, but it meant learning to juggle the comic with a consistent 50 hour-a-week job. I learned that I’m the kind of person that really needs to maintain a buffer, and when I do, NPCx3 is totally doable and a joy to make. Thank you for reading!
