This Week in Fred



We had a fart and we revealed that Brandon had hopes for Fred as well as Kevin! But, most importantly, we revealed that Kevin can play the banjo and he LOVES it!

5-Panel Page Week



This week was 5-Panel Week at Fred the Mustard Packet Land!

Each of the three pages at Webtoons were 5 panels and they were all arranged with a different layout. I weirdly enjoy challenging myself like this. And, the post from today is my personal favorite.

I love how Webtoons.com is supportive of creators. It encourages creators to use Patreon and it also encourages fans to support those creators on Patreon.

Patreon is a site that allows people to become patrons of the arts in an easy way.

You can be my Patron for a buck a month! Super cool.

Splash Page Week!



Fred the Mustard Packet just had Splash Page Week at Webtoons!

Yes, I gave myself the challenge to make each page a Splash Page this week and it was the week where Fred is going through some existential stuff. So, this week brought three of our weirdest and wildest pages to date!

Condimentedly Yours,

We went to California this week, but Fred didn't stop!

Check out the pages from this week. I'm really looking into diving into psychedelic storytelling. I'm exploring some 1960s style art in these pages. Wednesday had an especially weird page.

I especially enjoy how Brandon the Cloud is becoming a more important character, he's going to keep adding value to the story, stay tuned in!

Thanks for the support,

I keep changing the process, and that's a good thing.



Fred the Mustard Packet Spins a Sign is going on strong on Webtoons.

So, I've changed the process of creating Fred comics again. I love this back and forth of experimentation, especially on this story. In the sign spinning story, I wanted to tell a very psychedelic story, like something that would come out in the 1960s, possibly in a weird issue of ZAP.

This story was outlined with the idea in mind that I would not make it into a commodity, that it would be full of experiments. I don't want to have anyone thinking that I'm ditching quality though. With each page and process, I am bringing the best that I can to it. I love Webtoons and I want each page I put up there to be a celebration.

So, the new process in Fred is to create, lettering, panels, and other technical parts of a comic page in vector. Print the panels with letters twice, thus using two sheets of copy paper. I pencil the page on one of the papers. Then I put it on the light board, place the second sheet on top of the penciled sheet and ink while tracing the best parts of the pencils. No erasing necessary, and I'm getting cleaner scans in for coloring! YEEHAW!!!

I love having multiple ways to attack the work of comic book art. I do plan on doing more purely digital pages as things will get more hippy, trippy.

Thank you for your support.
