Art trade: Matt and Dr. Jekyll!

by Matt

Hey folks! I completed my first art trade on Comic Fury this week and I thought I'd show you the results. MK_Wizard, author of MK's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, started that funny event. I thought it was a good idea to draw each other's protagonists. So here we go:


​I drew her version of Dr. Jekyll trying to discover the Hyde formula. He was really fun to draw. Love the hairstyle and cartoony face.

And I told her Matt was up to her interpretation. Guess what? She drew an awesome rock and roll version!

​This is so funny. This totally looks like his 2016/2017 design, just with rock and roll elements and cooler pants. It feels like I'm looking into one of these mirrors where you can see alternate universes, and this Matt became a rock star instead of a comics author.


​So yeah, a great art trade. Thanks again!


Layout update 1

by Matt

Have a drawing of Thierry working with a drill. (from The Redac #5, March 2009)



Because that's how I feel right now, after working on html for a few days. Here are the changes so far:


- I tweaked the archive page. Nothing important. I just centered some text, that kind of stuff.

- I improved the FAQ page. It's a bit wall of text-y, but it looks way better than before.

- And I added a cool background! I like the Rainbow Tables layout, but that blank background was driving me crazy. So I changed it to an actual sheet of paper and added black-and-white versions of drawings from old Redacs. It looks childish and artistic, which is what this story is supposed to be, at least most of the time.


What's next, you ask? Well, I plan to make an actual "main" page in the following weeks, because linking to the archive as home page is becoming boring. And I don't want to link to the latest page like almost everyone does, because that could be spoilery. And I don't feel like linking to the first page either. So I have to make something specifically for that.


See you!


What to expect for 2018

by Matt

Wow, has it already been one month since I last posted a blog entry? There's no way I can keep being so lazy. Next year, I'll try to actually use this blog thing. Hey, since we're speaking of next year, here's what you should expect, Redac-wise...


- More pages! (obviously)
- More interesting blog entries! (hopefully)
- Subtle layout changes! There are a lot of minor things I'm not quite satisfied with. I just hope I won't accidentally destroy the site. I'd better mess around with a test comic first.
- A spoiler-free cast page, whenever I finish posting all the 2009 stuff.


Happy New Year!


And as always, thanks for reading/subscribing/lurking!
