Welcome to Our Name Was Maja

Two souls, Dolores and Anya, who lived in the same body their whole life as "Maja", are separated upon death. The two beloved then attempt to reunite and be together once again. Ko-fi: https://ko-fi.com/L4L3BK7E

Slow... Exams, plus other projects slowing me down

Maja is not on hiatus or anything like that, but June is exam month. I'm a comic school student and I have other comics I need to finish for school asap and those have priority (drawing-wise). Those are almost done, but I'm working on other stuff as well. I'm collaborating with the Italian Onlus Hamster Association (AIC) on a small comic about proper hamster care. I'm (sadly) not going to earn anything from it because it is volunteer work, but AIC volunteers are going to spread different copies in various animal stores in their area, so I'll get good exposure I guess (and this would look GREAT on my Curriculum Vitae). So yeah! I've been working on the next Maja page between things (I also have a couple of commissions to work on for a very picky customer and the new privacy policy to translate from Italian to English for a friend of mine, though he's paying me for this), and even if it's going slowly, I'm going.

Hello, I made a Ko-fi account, so if you appreciate my comic and would like to buy me a capuccino for breakfast... I'd really appreciate it :)

Facebook Page

Some of you may know, some of you may not know, but I have a facebook page for Our Name was Maja and have had it for a while now.
https://www.facebook.com/OurNameWasMaja/ Feel free to like it, mainly because there I also post external contributions by fans/friends and other sketches (which I can't rly post on SmackJeeves)!

I'd really appreciate it ^^

New Page - remake

Hello, You'll probably be notified of a new page and see nothing new - well it's either an addition in the "characters" section or, in this case, a remake of a page. More specifically, page 56. http://ournamewasmaja.thewebcomic.com/comics/2462530/56-remake/

So yeah that's about it

Finished Organising Chapters

As of today I finished writing the story, all that's left is to finish working the storyboards and the comic itself!!

There will be a total of 15 chapters + an extra (so something like 4 chapters +1 left!).

I finished art school for the year, and since I've gotten into the habit on working on art every tuesday and thursday afternoon, I'll do my best to keep that habit during the summer to work on my comic, so if everything goes well, I might even be able to finish it by the end of the summer (though that might be a bit naive... we'll see).

Wish me luck, and I hope you enjoy!

I just finished storyboards for chapter 9... this is going to be intense. I almost cried drawing them. Expect page 1 soon enough

Spotlight Recommendation?

I know I don't really have any "fans", but if I do, I hope they read it.
I recently learned that to enter among the comics in the "spotlight" section of Smackjeeves it needs to be recommended here: http://smackjeeves.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=22

My comic fits into all the requirements, but it's frowned upon when the author itself recommends it.
Can someone of you guys do it, please? My comic would get more attention, which would motivate me to work more for sure (I have a Stakanovich problem in which I do everything I can to live up to expectations so sadly I'm pretty sure that's what would happen...)

Even if you don't do it, I appreciate you for reading my comic. Thank you very much!
