Risk and challenges:

I've been involve with multiple comic projects doing parts of the whole production, ranging from cover art to interior coloring. This is my first attempt to finish a whole comic production from planning of the stories to inking and laying in the greyscale shading by myself. The risk and challenges I would be first facing, are the logistic side of things, fulfilling all the rewards and promises. The intention of this comic attempt is also partly an effort to experiment and test out Fantastic Fox as a comic platform. I realize in the attempt to market Fantastic Fox, some artists I interacted with, locally, never have a thought of surviving as an original content comic artist. I think I use to be one of them too. I know it is tough by the nature of the beast. Creating an original content is the same as pushing out a new product. A lot of marketing effort is needed and we haven't even talk about the time you need to put into finishing the comic. I've been discourage quite a a lot, surprisingly. Some are of cause not intentional. This is a course I have charted at the moment in my life and I want to give it a try, just to see how far I can push this. The passing of Robin William is saddening but out of his passing, people are reminded of his works. Out of all his works, this quote speaks to me. Quoted by Robin William from Whitman in Dead Poets Society. "...That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be? ... That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?" I can understand everyone have their own concern and their own priorities. Sometime we are quick to judge but learning to step back and look at the big picture makes us more understanding. I'm not complaining about the situation but more of in the mode of finding a solution for the problem. I'm anxious about pushing my comic as well as Fantastic Fox. I just want to test and experiment possible business pipeline for comic artist to build their own IP. I'll definitely try to continue to push original content as far as I can. I guess I'll just keep doing and hope for the best. Either I'll be around or I wouldn't be. Life is simple. Keeping pushing. :)

Update # 6: Updates 270415
Posted 3 years ago

Hi all backers. It is scary how time flies. The second story is done and I’m very sorry to be quiet for the last few months. Some of you may have known that because I stop taking projects last year, I kind of went into a small financial crisis. It is nothing serious but definitely a good lesson for me. I started to take in jobs again and I have been learning to juggle it with the comic along the way. I’m still getting used to it and I’m still making an effort to push the quality as much as I can with a time limit I have given myself.  Enjoy the second story. The third story, Gentleman in the forest, is in progress at the moment. I have also managed to find another editor to help out but I think I’ll run a check with him first before I broadcast his name.

- Story block out for Gentleman of the Forest. 24 pages in total.

Do let me know if anyone needs the link and password to download the pdf file. On the side note, I am still trying to improve the function of Fantastic Fox and this is definitely one area I will look into. I think having a Link and password to download the pdf may be troublesome for some of the supporters. Anyway, do enjoy the story and I sincerely appreciate the support I have received. Until next time.

Update # 4: Updates 011114
Posted 3 years ago

Hi all backers. The campaign has come to an end. I sincerely thank everyone who have supported. We have overshot our target by 200%, closing the campaign at $2025. I will take a bit of time to process the rewards. Email will be sent out to different groups of backers to collect information that I need within the next few weeks. I’ll continue to update everyone on the progress of the comic through here and email. Do feel free to email me, torei (at) raytoh (dot) com, if you have any questions or comments.

Update for 011114: Password and link have been sent out to all the backers allowing everyone to download the eBook. As I have said in the previous update, only Detective D is done at the moment. AST 08 is still production. Attach is a wip image for AST 08. 

- Page 1 and page 7, title page.

Do let me know if anyone is experiencing any problem finding their password or downloading the eBook. Have a good weekend. As for me, back to work! See you guys on the next update.  

Update # 3: Updates 251014
Posted 3 years ago

Hi all backers. The backing campaign is coming to an end soon. We have overshot our mark with 4 more days to spare! Not bad for a first time effort on Fantastic Fox. Hopefully the site will grow stronger in the future.

Updates for 251014: I manage to talk to some printer and I think we are going ahead with the printing of the physical book. As an appreciation to all supporters including the $5 pledge backers as well as the FFecard buyer, everyone will get a copy of the physical book. Unless you are not base in Singapore, shipping will be free.

I will upload Detective D and send out the password within this few days. You'll get to read the first story, Detective D. Do feel free to comment or drop me a message, either through here or my email, torei (at) raytoh.com. I still have much to learn and I'm picking things up as I move along.

Progress of AST 08 is abit slow due to some work commitment on the side. I'll push through because I'm serious about making this work, long term, even after this project. Thanks again for the support and more updates to come as thing progress.

Update # 2: Updates 121014
Posted 3 years ago

Hi all backers. Guess what! We have hit our mark of $1000!! With 17 days to space. Thank you all for the supports, really appreciate it. I also need to thanks the people who bought the FFecard at STGCC convention too. Supports are coming from everywhere. T^T

Update for 121014: I manage to get my friend. Blauereiter, to step in to take up the role of an acting editor. Blauereiter is my poly classmate and we have known each other for a long time. He is working as a TD at ILM Singapore and runs a blog, http://halcyonrealms.com/ that reviews Art books, Photography and Films. Do drop by his blog to check it out.

Detective D is in the progress of a second check. Once that is done I'll upload it up. I'll then send out an email with the passwords to download the ebook. The second story A.S.T. 08 is in production at the moment.

One more thing I am researching on is getting the book printed. I notice people are requesting for a printed version. If that happen, all the pledges will be upgraded to a printed copy of the book on top of the e-copy. All pledges except for the $5 pledge. Backers of the $5 pledge and buyers of Fracture Thoughts FFecard will get a discount for the printed book. Having said that, the idea is still in research at the moment, so nothing is confirm yet. More updates to come.

Update # 1: Updates 021014
Posted 3 years ago

Hi all backers. Thanks for backing the project. Really appreciate it. I will keep everyone updated on the progress of the project through here.

Update for 021014: Detective D is done. We have a total of 36 pages. I will be passing it to my friend who is acting as my editor to help me over look my language used. Once that is done, I will send out the links to all the backers and you can read each of the story as it gets done. The file in the link will be updated every time I have completed a story. At the end of finishing up the Anthology, you will have a full ecomic with the five stories in it. Do let me know if you are experiencing any problem with the downloads. The products, T-shirt and A3 prints, will be fulfilled after this crowdfunding projects comes to an end. I'll send out another email then, to request for your address and any detail that I may required. 

- Story block out for Detective D. All pages except page 36.

Meanwhile, while my friend is going through the comic, Detective D, I will be moving on to the second story, AST 08. More updates to come. Thanks again for the support.
