PursueWhat inspired your passion to be creative? For me it was a comic that I got for Christmas when I was 11 or 12, that really opened my eyes to the possibilities in comics. Since then, my passion for art, storytelling, and creativity has grown with each passing day!
First up, I announced that Stir Fry Comics now has a YouTube channel. Right now it’s just a mirror for these podcasts, but I hope to have original video-only content in the near future! A link for this channel will always be in the top menu at Stir Fry Comic, but here’s a direct link to the channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtrtuS8myIiggarf7cSux9g
In Episode 2 I reviewed JustTheFirstFrame.com -love the concept, but I had mentioned that, at that time, there was no links on the main page to either “About” or “Submit” and it was questionable if the site was still active. I managed to track down an email address for the person who was supposed to be running it and shot of an email with no response. However, I checked back, and saw that they had added links for both in there, so you can head on over there and submit your own comic, and know that the site is being kept up to date. Thats http://www.justthefirstframe.com Check it out!
I Want To Pursue This


In the first segment I talk about how the early TMNT comics inspired my desire to be a comics creator and to pursue a career as a creative in general. One of the things I mentioned was the cool duoshade paper that they had used to make the comics. Sadly, I don’t think duoshade is still available, but here’s a link to a site that shows some videos  of it in actionand a better explanation of what it is than what I give:http://blog.mysterioustransmissions.com/post/79836401463/grafix-duo-shade-is-a-special-paper-used-to-create

TMNT was the book that inspired me, but it could be anything for you (let me know, I’d love to hear about it!). But I really do feel that the early TMNT comics are great, so if you’re curious about checking them out, the book I have is no longer available, but here’s a link to something similar on Amazon*: http://amzn.to/1IPTtvv
