Welcome to the queertales blog

- by Ragnar on November 22. 2009

This site,queertales.com, has been online since September 1st, and now contains 3 1/2 comics, with more on the way. With the rather slow pace I’ve been able to add new tales to the site, I decided to add this blog to keep you up to date on what I’m working on, as well as share some graphics tips and tricks I hope you find interesting. I’ve also added a short About page, in case you’re curious to know more about me.

Spying on the nude beach

Currently I’m working on finishing Gawkers. I’ve inked the whole comic, and am working on colouring the second half. It’s a bit slow going, as I went for drawing style that I find pretty hard to do, and adding both colour and shading is pretty time consuming. On top of that comes the Christmas party season here in Norway. Last weekend I was at a Christmas party with my boyfriend and his co-workers, yesterday with some friends, and the next weekend it’s with my co-workers. It’s all great fun, even though it means I have less time to draw (being a bit hung over doesn’t really help). 😉

Anyway, time to get back to the drawing board.

Making Comics Using Google Forms to Track Your Progress

I’m currently working on a 100+ page comic book, which is honestly a lot of work, and I wanted a tool that would help me keep track of all the time spent on it so I could get an accurate estimate of how I was doing and better plan future comics. . . .

Turning Queertales into a Static Site

I guess the title of this post can be interpreted ironically, as queertales.com has been quite static for a few years, with rare updates from me, but that’s not really what this post is about. . . .

New Projects on the Distant Horizon

I’ve began working on a couple of new comics projects, a rompy sci-fi story and a dark historical fiction. Both are in very early stages of development, so I have no idea when (or if) they’ll be out, but I’ll try to keep you up to date on my progress here. . . .

It’s well into the 24th, and I should have gone to sleep hours ago, but instead I sat up and drew this. . . .

David is a Funeral Director, Who Just Happens to be Gay

Phrases like that are commonly heard when discussing gay characters in fiction, but what do they really mean? On the surface they simply mean that the characters gayness is not important to the story, but if you dig a little deeper it has a more subtle and darker undertone. . . .
