My First “Laser Eyes Jesus” Comic Strip 11-11-2016

This was the first “Laser Eyes Jesus” comic strip that I ever published on WordPress. That was on November 11, 2016. There have been a few revisions since then. (The original is on the left.)

In the beginning, I had wanted a sepia toned color palette, but I also liked 1950’s and 1960’s color palettes. I created some comic strips using each, and they had a visually “right” feeling. Unable to decide which to use, my first set of comic strips were a combination of these two: sepia for Laser Eyes Jesus in “normal mode“ and 1950’s and 60’s for ”laser eyes mode.“ This worked in a way, but it didn’t have the visually “right” feeling in the same way when combined within the same comic strip.

Since then I’ve made some modifications, and I feel much more pleased with how my comic strips look. Rather than combining two color palettes, I’m sticking with two separate ones that I’m calling “Old Newspaper” (center) and “Modern E-News” (right). These feel “just right” to me.

I must pause here and say that these are all visual thoughts and decisions, not spiritual thoughts and decisions! This is right in line with my consideration of starting a companion page at Patreon.com.

Patreon.com allows creative people to share their work online in a community of “creators” and “patrons.” For graphic artists and comic strip artists, this is where we can show what we are working on and talk about it in visual terms.

So for spiritual thoughts and decisions, I’m sharing mostly through Wordpress.com, and for visual thoughts and decisions, I may be sharing mostly through Patreon.com. Hopefully this will feel “just right” for you.

Please watch for additional information about my Patreon.com companion page. I’m having a tough time getting it feel “just right” for you too!
