Godard In Love

06 February 2019

Here then are the stages of my process on what's been my first foray into auto-bio comics. As you might expect, even when trying to include myself as a character in a strip I couldn't help but take a detour into Sixties pop-culture and film history as befits the cinephile in me. Pretentious? Moi?

"Try turning it off & on again?"

In the process of having tidied up some of my website design I have just discovered that there is a new version of the Kirby framework my site's built on which is going to mean upgrading a chunk of files and folders. I never look forward to this sort of thing as it just seems to be asking for trouble, but I'm going to have a go at doing it during my day off on Friday, so be prepared for some Effin' & Blindin' come the end of the week when things go proverbially pear-shaped 🍐


Sprucing up the website

04 February 2019


I've been fiddling around with some of the back-end on here ["Ooo er missus!" - ed.] and the first thing I've managed to implement is a little drop-down list of all my Bullpen Bootcamp posts in the menu bar. The other thing you'll probably have noticed is that I've finally said farewell to The Sheep And The Wolves as a URL and stumped up for NICKPROLIX.com. The old URL was a remnant from when I was first serialising The Sheep And The Wolves online as a weekly webcomic but now that the story appears in Slang Pictorial as well as the fact that I've got different comics for sale as well as side projects such as Bullpen Bootcamp, it just makes a lot more sense to have a URL that can act as an umbrella for everything Prolix!
