What’s been going on?
Hello, fine people. You may have noticed the recent lull of Mr Oh blog activity. I’ve been kind of busy as I am lucky enough to have become a dad for the second time very recently. I now have a second daughter, Lana, who is a bundle of joy. As a result, I have had less time to draw. Nappies and wotnot!
However, it has given me space to think about Mr Oh and come up with lots of ideas, so I wanted to update anyone still reading (bless you, you loyal lovelies) as to what’s on the horizon.
Essentially, through the blog so far, I have been posting all different types of cartoons: self development, off-beat, character-led comics…After reflection, I am now going to endeavour to take it on a new, more focused direction. I’m going to give TipTop a go and create a focused TipTop website via wordpress.org and a new theme. Also, I want to create enough content in advance so that there is a constant trickle, rather than any embarrassing lulls. Essentially, I guess it’s a bit of a relaunch but I see it as a development from what I’ve learnt so far and an attempt to get more loyal readers who may like TipTop specifically.
What’s the site going to be like and when’s it coming?
In the new TipTop site, there’ll be cartoons about parenting, Health & well-being, Uncle Bob, and general quirkyness, all hopefully held together by the characters.
I’m also trying to develop my drawing and colouring with new software and equipment to up the quality as best I can.
Down the line, I also want to incorporate recordings of songs I’ve written with the characters too. It’s all too much excitement for my little head so one step at a time!
I’ve got a fair bit of work ahead of me to make this fly, and with fatherhood and a busy teaching job to manage, I don’t want to kill myself getting thing live. Still, the passion is there, so I will work hard to get things going and hope to have something for viewage before too long!
I’ll keep you posted here on developments if you would like to track my progress and let you know when it’s ready. I am using twitter a fair bit if you would like to say Hi. I’m @MrOhComic
Thanks so much for staying with Mr Oh thusfar and hope your world is good. I hope you’ll keep in my loop and stay tooned,
Mr Oh x
