We’re Back!

27 Nov

We’re back, baby! After much effort, we’ve finally gotten to a place with the big studio move where we can get back to business as usual. That was kind of a wordy sentence, but I’m going with it. Grammatical considerations aside, I’m excited for the next chapter in the 1134 Press story; I hope you are too. 

We are looking to add a slightly different style of video to our YouTube repertoire. There will still be the videos that you are already used to, but we are flirting with the idea of including more process-oriented videos; these would be a little shorter and primarily focus on the construction of various papercrafts. 

This week’s video (posted Wednesday evening), is in the style described above. I think the video has a chill vibe and is good inspiration for creativity. Check it out at the link and subscribe if you haven’t already!

Thanks everybody, and we hope you’ve had a happy and safe holiday!

Watch Bookmaking Videos by 1134 Press

Channel Update

18 Nov

Hello everybody,

Well, we moved house (and the studio spaces). Unfortunately, though, putting everything back together has been much more of a process than expected. The bookmaking space is nearly together, but we were unable to execute a new video for YouTube this week. We expect to be back up and running in time to create something for next week.

The drawing studio is also coming together, but it is still a bit of a disaster area. So, no new webcomics this week either. Depending how it goes, there might be something new for 1134 Comix this coming Sunday. Anyone who has followed this page for any amount of time likely expects long lapses in new content. So, has anything really changed here?

In conclusion, we’re working to get our stuff together. We can’t wait to start putting new content up as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience!

Moving the Studio and Reflecting on the Journey

1 Nov

Since I started 1134 Comix some years ago, I have had a few studio setups. The studio changes every time I move house (makes sense, since this has always been a home-based situation). Where I sit today is the third workspace from which 1134 content has been produced. From this iteration of the 1134 Studio we created 1134 Press, which has become the flagship of this endeavor. We’ve since published five books as 1134 Press, including two 1134 Comix titles. We’ve created countless handmade books, and most excitingly, began sharing our craft in video form. After years finding its voice, and moving locations, the project I called 1134 is at last becoming itself. And again, a new studio is on the horizon. 

All that might be a long way to go just to say we’re moving; but I like to tell a story. In the beginning, this all took place in a dingey basement where I would listen to heavy metal while drawing my often-random cartoons. Then, the studio was crammed into a small room on the third floor of a Baltimore Brownstone; I actually made some of my best work there, though the work did not have very far reach. As I write from this current version of the studio, which consumes a significant portion of our Mount Vernon apartment, I can’t help but reflect on the path to this point. Though each stop along the way on this journey has had value, this stop has been the most valuable so far. With much planned for the future of 1134 Press, we look forward to setting up in the new location and beginning the next chapter. 

We’ve started boxing things up in preparation for the big day. Then, once we finally get over to the new place, we will have to go through the process of putting everything back together. With that said, we are going to take two weeks off from publishing the main content. Web-comics and YouTube videos are scheduled to return in the week of November 16th. In the case that this timeline shifts, we will post updates to our various platforms. In the meantime, there will still be some activity from 1134 on the socials and our blog page. 

Be back soon!
