Oojo and Bink is one year old! Cue dance music and party poppers and bottles of bubbly!
A year ago I launched this comic strip with a short animation called Episode 1: A Short Break. Please watch it if you haven't already, because it tells the story of how Oojo and Bink came to be living on planet Earth.
It was the first animation I'd ever made, using Photoshop for the first time, as a prologue to my first ever weekly webcomic. It was a bit of a risk.
It was also risky to choose aliens as the main characters. Most comic strips feature humans and/or animals. But Oojo and Bink have been in my imagination since I was at school, and they were begging to be brought to life. So I let them.
I hope you have enjoyed reading Oojo and Bink in its first year. If you have, please let me know. A little encouragement goes a long way.
