Time Space Warp!
by Meowaffles

Wow! I can't believe it's Friday already!

I honestly thought it was Thursday and was rushing to try and get 2 pages out for this comic at the same time. (So I could upload them tomorrow) Seeing as it's really Friday evening over here I've just uploaded the finished page I have and I guess I'll upload this one that I'm currently working on sometime next week. I'm trying to work my way up to 2 pages a week but don't want to make any promises until I can continuously do so.

I'll likely be able to do that next week unless my upcoming client buries me with work. (I'll make sure to upload a page a week even if this is so)

On the topic of time though, I hope I'm not boring everyone with the pace of my comic. The pacing's fine on paper but I guess it feels slow to me on the upload-each-week basis. (Again, I'll be working to speed that up).

On the topic of boring everyone, I wonder who actually reads my blog. I don't make it a point to read webcomic blogs or any blogs and have only done so sparingly but I have, on occassion, been pleasantly surprised by some of them. Some people just have these amazing insights or fun stories to tell. Of course I don't really expect many people to read my blog nor am I even really hoping a lot of people do so. (I'll hope for that when I write something that'll really move people, make them laugh, or make them think.) I know that at least my mom will read my blog. (Hi mom!) I'm really just curious about what people who I'll probably never meet actually think about it. I guess it's fine to wonder since Curiosity Cured the Cat!... or not.

Tai Chi Lessons
by Meowaffles

Hello once more and welcome once again to my webcomic blog.

I've been pretty busy with freelance work this week but I have managed to work on the webcomic and plan to regularly upload at least one page (maybe more) once a week around Friday-ish (Philippine Time). Not much longer now. I'll follow a more proper schedule when my schedule becomes more proper :)

Anyway, I'd just like to tell everyone that I'm now learning Tai Chi!

You can't imagine how difficult it is to find a good instructor who knows actual tai-chi & other kung-fu and will teach the real thing. I just happened to be fortunate enough to know one of his students, who was amused enough by my comic to decide I should learn kung-fu. Don't expect to find odd secret techniques in my comic though. I'm making up a few fictional kung-fu styles for fun... so don't try them without supervision from an actual martial arts instructor. You'll just look silly.

So now I'm studying Tai Chi in a small class of 4 students weekly and already have "homework" for next week. It's been over 24 hours since that class and my legs are starting to feel more normal and less like I'd spent a day swimming. I now know some stances; that they exist, what they are supposed to look like, and how to make mine eventually look like what they are supposed to look like; and how to breathe properly. You'd be surprised how often people hold their breath when exerting themselves. Needless to say, I felt like I was a large rock or an oversized slab of ham throughout most of the lessons.

For now, I'll be off to pursue my dream of becoming a kung-fu master so I can challenge the old kung-fu masters in the mountains of northern China... rather, I'll continue scanning and coloring my comic so you guys can read it.

The First Entry
by Meowaffles

As you can probably see, this site is still being made.

This is my first comic blog entry so I suppose I should introduce myself and explain what I'm making here.

I'm Meowaffles. My friends know me as Nicco, Rawr, Mawf and other odder nicknames. I get by making freelance graphic designs for a living, though I haven't gotten around to making a professional website for my work. I'll look into that some time.

Anyway, I came up with this comic idea maybe some 4 years ago but only started getting it down on paper about 2 months back. I'm happy enough that the wonders of the internet will allow me to share my work with anyone who cares to read it. I am only now getting it colored and uploaded online.

It's supposed to be a comedy comic about kung-fu, martial arts in general, school, friends, and chasing your dreams. Stories do have a way of doing their own thing, though, and I'd really rather just wait and see what nonsense my overactive imagination comes up with and put that down on paper.

I believe I am qualified to write a comic about martial arts because I have a black belt in my cabinet, made of leather, with a shiny metal buckle! I've also had years of experience challenging the students of various martial art disciplines for fun... and mostly being on the wrong end of many of their techniques.

Seriously though, I have had some actual martial arts training and great teachers but I'm not going to boast because there honestly isn't a lot to boast about. I can say at least that I've suffered no serious injuries and I actually did learn some things. I did okay I guess.

I'll get back to work now on the actual comic and site so you guys can get to reading it in the near future.
