1134 Press Hits a New Milestone

3 Feb

We don’t usually post here in the middle of the week, and I don’t have a new comic for you today. I did want to take a moment, though, to acknowledge the growth of our main platform. It’s not a lot in comparison to other YouTube channels, but 1134 Press has recently passed 500 subscribers. We started the channel some years ago; 2017 if I’m not mistaken. However, we only started posting videos with regularity over the summer of 2020. Since then, we’ve seen fairly steady growth in viewership.

I’m compelled to reflect on the history of 1134, but I’ve written about that previously. I’ve most recently written about our journey here. Instead of rehashing our journey, I want to look forward to the future. With the channel growing, our goals for 1134 Press and 1134 Comix seem that much closer. While we continue to produce more and more videos about bookmaking and journaling, we have so many more ideas in the works.

If all goes to plan, here are just a few of the things we can look forward to:

  • A new book of fiction
  • Premium content for 1134 Press subscribers
  • More videos for the 1134 Comix channel

If you happen to be interested in bookmaking, journaling, paper crafts, or writing in general, become a subscriber to our main channel. It costs you nothing and gets us that much closer to achieving the goals outlined above.

Thanks, and come back soon for a new comic!

Random Sunday

17 May

Way back in the early days of 1134 Comix, I had a character called Axgar. I posted a five-page Axgar comic on the site (which you can still find here), wrote a longer story, and created a bunch of art pages with the new story in mind. Well, the story kept being put on the back burner as I focused more on other comic ideas for 1134. Eventually the hard drive where all those art pages and scripts were kept was stolen, which caused me to pretty much give up on the character and story.

I’m feeling random today, though. So, I made this random drawing of Axgar and figured I’d post it here.

Maybe this guy deserves another shot . . .

1134 Comix: More Videos?

4 Sep

As some of you might have seen, I recently created a video based off of the News from the Crypt web-comic. If you haven’t watched it yet, I think it’s kind of funny but also kind of bad for a few reasons (you can determine those reasons for yourself if you give it a look lol). You can find a link to the video in a previous post; lower down the feed. Though the video didn’t exactly crash YouTube with the amount of views it received, I am going to create more videos for 1134 Comix. Having decided to create more videos, I spent some time working on the YouTube page–I realized that the page is a mess. I’m not going to try to describe the myriad problems here, but there is some work to do in getting pages/accounts sorted out right before more videos are posted. Also, the video linked in the post below will probably disappear during the process of fixing the channel(s). Fortunately, I caught the problems with the YouTube account before uploading a lot of stuff.

At this point, it’s hard to promise a real schedule for video uploads. I think that, for now, new videos will generally be based on the News from the Crypt web-comic. Most weeks, there will be a web-comic posted as usual, on Instagram and 1134 Comix (we also have content on webtoons, but that’s another platform where its use is being reconsidered). Some weeks, though, an animated video will be posted instead of a News from the Crypt web-comic. If all goes to plan, I will get better and better at creating videos; and saying the channel grows a following, I will start posting videos more regularly while pairing down the amount of web-comics posted. From my experience with the first video, I feel like animated shorts are the best medium for News from the Crypt, and that the audience would be more interested in the videos than the web-comics. I also plan to make other videos unrelated to News from the Crypt, but we’ll see how it goes. 

For now, look forward to more web-comics. We are still finishing off the Pussies of Tomorrow story, and the News from the Crypt web-comic is still ongoing. I plan to have the YouTube channel fixed up and a new video ready some time over the next week or two. To wrap up this post, I’ll just remind everybody to check back later today/tonight for the next page of Pussies of Tomorrow–find out what happens with Captain Snowball and the crew!
