New to the FLIGHT forums? Introduce yourself in this thread!

Post by Stick » Fri May 04, 2007 2:48 pm

Hi, and welcome to the FLIGHT Forums!

This is the introductions thread so that any new members who join the boards can drop a post in here and say hi to the rest of us. It'll reduce the number of 'hi i'm new' threads that have been recently popping up and it'll give one nice little 'welcome center'!

My name William Ward. I am a writer. I also have and anthology project coming out called Fablewood which I am a contributing editor. I have lurked in the boards here for a while, but just registered so I could post.

JP Ahonen, who has a story in Flight 4, was nice enough to post a thread about my comic anthology project here that has gotten some good responses. Thought I should come out of the shadows and say hello.

Also, random information… I just got my copies of JP Ahonen’s Northern Overexposure comic book and I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it. You can find samples online, but I though I would add that the print/book quality is excellent and I received my copies (shipped from overseas) in perfect condition.

You can buy it here:

I'm Catherine. I do children's cartoons and illustrations. Mostly freelance work right now, although I used to have a webcomic and I'm thinking about starting another one sometime soon.

Hello, all.

Found this forum, then found Flight #1 in a local comics shop (yes, in that order). Have enjoyed reading it (well, them - the forum as well as the book) so far. Am now de-lurking here.

Oh, and yes, I draw things too. Got a blog comic at http://clarentius.urbanblog.dk/, but you probably won't get that much of it, if you don't read Danish (yes, Danish can be written, read and spoken, not only eaten).

Hi, my name is Andrew, I am working as a multimedia/web-developer guy at an e-learning company. I also do some freelance illustration and animation work, but not nearly as much as I'd like.
I'm keeping up a comic sketchblog here, which is keeping me relatively sane for the time being.

(musters an air of faux superiority) Advanced illustration. The post-grad course. First year it was offered.

Not that it succeeded in turning me into an illustrator, but hey, I learned a lot of important stuff regardless.
