I've finally sorted out the tile of  my new comic.  Up until today I've been referring to it as my new comic.  Which is all well and good in the development phase, but I'm getting pretty darn close to publishing it and up until today I've had no idea what to call it.

More after the jump.
 I've decided to call the comic strip Jam Tomorrow.

The story behind the name Jam Tomorrow is a long one, one I will eventually tell.  The reason I'm being cryptic is because of a storyline that will develop in the first weeks of the strip.  Once it starts to unfold I will delve a little deeper into what inspired the name Jam Tomorrow, why it's important,  how it represents the comic, and what Jam Tomorrow means to me personally. 

I'll be publishing Jam Tomorrow three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays starting January 2012. In an effort to continue posting something everyday in the mean time I've included a model sheet.  The attached image is an emotion guide that I use to help remind me of all the complex and subtle emotions that Swanson can express. As far as his design goes he isn't much to look at, but I love how complex a character he is turning into despite his simple design.

In the upcoming weeks I will start a facebook page for Jam Tomorrow, as well as some other web-type goodies. If you like what you've seen so far make sure to leave a comment below and spread the word on facebook and twitter.

Thanks for the support!

I love all the different expressions. Very funny and offbeat.
