Rex Jargon Junior is a boy who loves to play with words. He likes his eggs punny side up, he is an active author of alliterations and you've never met a sublimer rhymer. While not a great student, he sure has read a lot of books!
Sally is an energetic lass who lives on the edge of Egalliv with her little brother, Brad, and her dad, Saul. Sally likes to climb trees and to skip stones in the river and to go fishing. She is one of the fastest kids in town!
Draziw the Wizard
Draziw the Wizard comes from a distinguished family of witches and wizards and, for mysterious reasons, lives in the woods above the tiny town of Egalliv.... In his spare time, he enjoys teaching the local wolves to speak English.
Nogard the Dragon
Nogard the Dragon lives in a dark cave at the edge of the woods above Egalliv. Like most dragons, Nogard gets bored easily and must be kept busy. Unlike most dragons, Nogard enjoys reading a good book!
I found out today that Isle of Elsi has been nominated for the 2019 Ignatz Awards in the Oustanding Online Comic category!!?! It is a huge honor to be nominated, especially with so many other great cartoonists recognized in the category.
Sadly, I will not be able to attend SPX this year, but if you will be there on Saturday September 14th, please consider voting for Isle of Elsi.
You can read the nominated story right here for FREE!
Last week the third Isle of Elsi story, Nogard the Dragon in The Search for Spinoza finished up! You can read all fifteen pages of it online for free (here’s a link to the first page).
These first three stories will make up the contents of the first Isle of Elsi book, which I am beginning to design (covers, endpapers, etc.). I will be documenting that process and getting feedback from my patrons over in the Isle of Elsi Patreon Backer Blog.
I’m also posting a bonus 8-page side story over the next week in the Backer Blog, just for my patrons. I’ve also continued “unlocking” one post a month, to give folks an idea of the kind of content I’ve been posting in there. Here are the March, April and May posts:
The fifth process post (inking) was already unlocked with a group of sample posts last year. This means that my entire process for a page of Isle of Elsi is now publicly available! You can check out all of my public posts on this page, and if you like what you see, consider pledging your support! I post every week and it’s a fun time to join in, as the fourth Isle of Elsi story begins on May 31st, and will continue well into 2020 – it’s a whopping 104 pages!
