30 Characters Challenger: Fes Works

| October 28, 2010 | 0 Comments

HELLO! This is Fes, and I have a hard time ignoring new creative ideas and projects! Aside from the standard high school art classes, I’m a self-taught cartoonist. I’ve not read much of any print comics aside from the Sunday funnies, but I got into reading webcomics in 2005. By 2006 I thought “I can do that! That’s EASY!” Well, no… It’s hard work, and takes a lot of dedication. So with a newfound respect, I’ve been plugging away at my comic P.S.I.: A Pessimistic Sense of Inadequacy, a training ground for improving my story-writing, drawing and character narrative.

In 2007, I created a weeekly, topical podcast called The Webcomic Beacon, which is one of the longest-running, continually-updating, webcomic podcasts online and still updating regularly. A labor of love with a focus on helping amateurs getting started in creating webcomics. Heavily advocating webcomics as a hobby and as artistic expression.

I’ve also participated in The Crossover Wars, the biggest webcomic crossover even in history TO THIS DAY! Crossover in the sense of ACTUAL crossing over of comics, not merely cameos as some certain comics have claimed. The Crossover Wars involved over 50 comics in assorted, direct crossovers, across at least 10 different storylines. All involved in trying to prevent a hostile takeover of the Webcomic Multiverse.

It was during this time, that I discovered Jenny Everywhere (a.k.a. “The Shifter”). Jenny Everywhere is a purposefully open source, comic heroine created in 2003. Around this time, the original website had gone done, but I brought her back with The Shifter Archive Project, where I catalog comics, cameos, artwork, articles, and writings on this character. With the help of several enthusiasts, it is the most compressive archive of the most notable open source character online, to date. I’ve seen and helped promote Jenny Everywhere as a character in many projects.

These days I’m trying to keep my head above water, with all the projects I’m engaged in; and I could talk for hours about all of it. While I’ve not giving into Art Memes so much, it’s hard to let a Comic CHALLENGE go by, once I find out about it. 30 Characters will certainly be a challenge for me, given my schedule, but I have to try. I hope to get at least 15, if not the full 30. I hope to utilize these new characters in my main comic as background characters, and see how things go from there.

Well, it’s time I signed off. You can check out my Fesworks Hub site for links to all I am involved with.
