Seaworthy: A High-Seas Adventure Comic

Hello Sailors and Cruisers,

I recently surfed into this forum (being an aspiring sailor, alas, with no ship), and thought that perhaps you would be an appreciative audience for Seaworthy, a comic about the misadventures of an English privateer ship and crew in the early 18th century. This comic is somewhat silly, perhaps, but I do try my best to keep it historically accurate and the ship anatomically correct.

So, if you get bored and want to read something that will [hopefully] make you laugh, try reading Seaworthy! And if you like what you see, tell your sailing buddies!

Welcome to the Forum, Seaworthy!

Other than a few brilliant political cartoonists, I'm not much of a comic fan. However, I can appreciate the difficult task of conveying a coherent, and hopefully amusing, idea in just a few cleverly drawn panels.

I once worked with a commercial director who would take an ad agency's storyboard (after he had won the bid to produce the commercial), redraw it to show the agency folks how he would shoot the ad, and get on film exactly what his redrawn board conveyed. It was uncanny.

Again, welcome. Perhaps you can get some Seaworthy ideas reading through the many posts here.

Welcome aboard!

It good to have an ARTeste' aboard! I've been wondering when one would show up.

In a sence, boat owers are a bit like artist's in that they put their hearts into their labor, then stand back and enjoy the beauty of their finished work (sometimes ).

We should have you help with a logo for the CF Burgee. It's gone to the wayside. http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...flag-7497.html

The ideas didn't get far Lack of imagination, I guess.

Check out some of the stories. New guy, same story
You may get some ideas from those. We hope you enjoy the forum!

I am very much enjoying the forum so far (it is much better than some of the boating/sailing ones I have tried to get into in the past).

Also, I would be totally happy to help out with the CF Burgee. I'll start brainstorming some ideas, and perhaps you can send some my way also. Do you think I should post something on the CF Burgee thread?

Cheers!

Pete...you might want to check on the name Seaworthy as that name is already in use by BoatUS for one of their member magazines. It is published on paper and on line. Here's a link:

Hello camaraderie,

Yes, I am aware of that unfortunate fact. However, Seaworthy is the name I decide on because it just worked for the ship and the comic in general. Seaworthy actually seems to be a fairly popular title for things around the net, but as far as I know I'm the only *comic* called Seaworthy and I'm satisfied with that fact. Essentially, the Seaworthy magazine and the Seaworthy comic are in different markets.

Although it would be swell if they wanted to team up and pay me a whole ton of money to put my comic in their magazine! Not bloody likely...

Hi Seaworthy. I like your art work. Have you tried animating your comic characters using Flash ?

Good luck with sailing and your comics.
Paul

I am completely hopeless with Flash, I'm afraid. But I certainly do have an interest in animating with Flash, so I will eventually be picking up a book on how to do it (I don't learn very well from online tutorials), probably in 2008 sometime.

It looks tough.
