THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!


Welcome to the Big Experiment...here, twice weekly, you'll thrill to the ongoing exploits of Asher and Spittle in their yet-to-be-officially-titled comic by Scott Morse and Skottie Young. We've decided to make a departure here at SkottieScott from the re-imagined character designs you've come to know and love. Instead, we're opting to CREATE. We're opting to OWN. We're opting to contribute to the entertainment spectrum with something original and hopefully a load of fun for everyone. It is for us, anyhow.

Periodically you'll find accompanying anecdotes about the creation of the story and characters, but mostly you'll find the story pages themselves. We're creating these one page at a time with no outline to work from: we're shooting from the hip. This could backfire and destroy comics and the internet itself... or succeed and make the internet a better place and comics the medium of choice for storytellers. Or at the very least make you smile twice weekly.

Asher is Skottie's creation, Spittle is Scott's creation. The rest is a joint effort written and drawn as we see each other's work just days before you do. 

Scott's pages will be updated every Monday while Skottie updates his every Friday. So you'll start and end each week with new piece of the adventure. 

Oh, and soon you'll see the look of SkottieScott evolve to better suit the comics format we're shooting for. Don't be scared. It's for your own good.

Buckle up.

The most epic adventure...

It's almost time. SkottieScott is about to launch the next phase of comics evolution right here...at least OUR comics evolution. Or revolution, based on our revelation that we need to stop screwing around and make some comics.

Skottie and I began a dialogue about this some time ago and the plan had always been to evolve the SkottieScott blog into something with more impact. You'll see some changes around here soon...a new look based around an easy-to-navigate main feature: our first joint comic project.

We're shooting from the hip, folks. One page at a time, one character at a time. We're drawing in a style we WANT to draw in, drawing a sort of story you wouldn't see anywhere else. Action, fantasy, adventure, suspense, and most importantly, funny with the words.



Here's a sneak peek at some of the evolution so far: After some lengthy conversations on what we're hoping to achieve, I started some "idea panels" to evoke story without a story. Just the flavor of what we might like. Skottie hit me back with our first solid character, and then I added my first solid character. We've got our leads, our dynamic duo, our Laurel and Hardy, our Artoo and Threepio. They're going to be in the middle of craziness from page one.



Try to keep up, people.

THE TIME HAS COME! THE TIME IS NOW!


CITIZENS OF SKOTTIESCOTT!

We here at SkottieScott are thrilled to embark on a new adventure in storytelling: a new, transparent method of storytelling that will expose the working process and enlighten readers! We have a strong vision and endeavor to set fire to the creative fuel flowing through our veins. We have a self-styled mission to reclaim the inspired collaborative process and let sequential entertainment explode on your screen.

We're going to make a comic. Right here. 

Prepare for hijinx as we switch off back and forth with the creative process. You'll thrill to the weekly adventures of two comics storytellers pulling out their sharpened artistic machetes and hacking their way through unknown worlds, lands filled with fantasy and adventure and humor and style. Lands we own, lands we control. Lands we're excited to share with you as we discover them ourselves.

That means we'll be taking a break from warm-up drawings of corporate characters. We want to connect more strongly with what we're doing and invest ourselves--our time and energy and creative spirit--in something hopefully more pure and lasting. 

Stay tuned. SKOTTIESCOTT will blow your minds shortly. Or at least serve up something different.
