Happy new 2018, El Moochadores! As we’re just beginning this new year, I wanted to get on here an thank everyone who visited our sites, or bought an illustration from us online, or at a con last year. Though Atomic Moo is mostly a learning experience for us, we appreciate any support we can get. Last year, was a chance for us to fix a lot of personal problems, and I feel like we’re a little bit better prepared to continue our goal of becoming professional artists and creators. This year we are going to continue to post/blog about all the great independent work we encounter in the world of comics, cosplay, and fan film/music, but we’re also going to focus a lot on improving our skills, and finishing projects. It’s always bugged me that we couldn’t get the Atomic Moo comic together, and a goal (resolution) this year is to get the remaining pages illustrated and have an official Atomic Moo comic! Which as I write this is going to be really tough, because I also want to keep up with my own webcomic (Atomic Tails), and Chud and I have a few print projects planned (almost finished too!) for this year. So, for the blog side of the Moo, look forward to a lot of drawing and painting tutorials, because I’ll be using those to get the comic going!
I also want to keep the “geek creative” side of Atomic Moo alive. It was by doing the “Moocast” and interviewing creatives that got us into making our own stuff, and since stopping the Moocast in 2016 I feel like we’ve drifted away from that inspiration which has hurt us. So, this next year I would also like to kick off the Moocast again and do regular post about the cool indie stuff we encounter at cons and online. Also, also, if you’re a creator and want us to share your project with our tiny (wee, miniscule even!) visitors, please let us know! Sourcing content is a huge time sink and I’m always in need of content, and it’s just cool to see fresh ideas outside the norm. Which is very much where we reside. Way outside the norm…
2017 was a pretty good year for us, and I have a feeling that 2018 is going to be even better.
