So I’m taking this opportunity to announce that I will be taking on a second project in the near future. It’s an older project of mine, which many of you who have been following me on Deviantart for a while have perhaps seen before.
The basic idea: This is the Button family, a family of gamers. Each one represents a different genre of video game. From left to right - Ridley (the classic console gamer), Denise (the casual/fitness gamer), Gwen (the music and rhythm gamer), Marc (the hardcore, violent gamer), and Patrick (the arcade gamer). As individuals and as a family, they’re very wrapped up in their hobby and it informs the way they interact with others and the world. The working title of this project will be “Buttons.”
I know, it probably doesn’t sound that great. But I have a lot of great ideas and it will have heart, something seemingly missing from family-centered comedies these days.
For those who are worried about how this will affect Ross Boston, worry not! Ross Boston, as well as fulfilling all of the perks from the donations to my campaign, are my main focus and my job right now and I will continue working on that primarily. “Buttons” will be the thing I do when I just feel like I need to develop something else so I don’t get too burnt out on Ross Boston.
Currently, I can’t say how this project will manifest but I suspect it will most likely be a webcomic just like Ross Boston. I also have no tentative starting date, but I will let you know more as this project develops, if it actually does. The only thing I can say with reasonable certainty is I will let the first episode of Buttons play out as a pilot and decide once that has been finished whether or not I want to continue doing it. We’ll see what happens.
I’ve had this one floating around in my head for 3 years now, so I’m excited to finally be getting it off the ground! Now that I actually know a thing or two about making a comic, I can make this the best thing it can be right now.
Hope you like them!
