"Doomed to Obscurity" - New Web Comic Launched

Filed under

For a New Year's Day surprise, I'm finally launching the webcomic I've always wanted to do. It's called Doomed to Obscurity and if you give it time, it'll grow on you. Strip #1 is up today; subsequent strips will be published every odd-numbered calendar day.

This is all in Inkscape, and with characters, props, and templates already saved in SVG, reusing parts of drawings becomes trivial. There's still a few details that might change over time, but then that's half the fun of a comic is watching it evolve! I've agonized the most over what graphics platform to use, but Inkscape has consistently given me the best results in what I think a comic should look like, while keeping the characters easy to pose.

Thunderbird to be separated from Mozilla

This is a long-ish message. It covers general topics about Thunderbird and the future, and also the topics of the Foundation involvement (point 9) and the question of merging repositories (point 11). Naturally, I believe it’s worth the time to read through the end. Read more
