Welcome to The WhoGirl webcomic. This is my first shot at a webcomic. I have been reading several webcomics over the years. During this time I had been published by comic companies here and there. The idea of making a webcomic kept tapping me in the back of the head over the years. But I never could think of a story that was suitable for purpose of a webcomic. Meaning one that would be interesting enough to read one page at a time. Not to mention to be able to come up with two pages a week. This in a normal comic wouldn't be a problem for me. But looking at webcomics, each page must hold it's own. Having a ending and a cliffhanger at the same time. I once had a comic strip put in the local paper everyday...that was rough trying to think of something new. I have a lot of respect for writer/artists that can come up with a good gag five or however many days a week.
The WhoGirl came from...I don't know where. In some part of my mind that hides from the rest. Because many people I know that saw WhoGirl, said she isn't something that I normally do. And they are pretty much right. I suspect it comes from girls I have been talking to. The kind of girls that I would expect could take care of themselves in the seediest parts of the big cities, and doesn't take any crap from any guy. That has that attitude, and a bit of ego. And the only guy they respect, are the ones that actually arent scared of them. But yet, can still be a lady deep down. She popped in my mind one evening as I was writing on a script for a future submission to a comic publisher. I drew her out, showed her to a former friend. Was told she needed to be touched up a bit more; so I did. She came out how I liked. But she was a character without a story. The website bug came back again, and she seemed to fit the bill. So I created a story that suited her.
The story is derived of how life has been going the last year. Dealing with relationships and dreams. I have the story in my mind how I want it to head. But that may change as it goes along. Because I roll things that happened in my life around in my skull. And watch other people living their lives and get a new view on things.
As you may notice the backgrounds and building designs look (hopefully) art deco. And the cars look modern/40ish. I decided on this because of one simple reason. I am a good ol' boy from a small town in the midwest. I had a chance to visit NY back in 2002. It was on a visit to some past aquiantences. I recall going through the city in awe. Huge buildings and structures. Thinking back on it, I probably looked like a country hick staring at buildings that they were use to. The small town tourist being all excited over the purdy buildings. But this was the first time to be in the city that I had only seen in movies and TV. Much like how big city people had come here expecting to see Native Americans still in loin cloths I suppose. (please don't write me with angry letters, that is not a blanket statement. I do get serious questions if native americans still do). But what seemed normal to someone in the city, was amazing and artistic to me. So I drew the big city in WhoGirl as I percieved NY City to be. Perhaps someday I shall go see it again.
The city Whogirl resides in isn't our NY. Of course it is obvious it's a alternate reality. You will see the obviousness of this as the story progresses.
Well. When I started this comment, I feared I wouldn't have anything to say. But I suppose like normal writers, once you start, it's hard to stop. This may also end up being my 'blog'. Oh the nightmare of that thought. Well. I give you The WhoGirl (I'll leave how I came up with that name for a later time). And hope you enjoy.
