BEHIND THE SCENES
Hi everyone! My name's Curtis and I decided to write and self-publish my own comics! I got into this because it’s my passion and I feel it’s my life’s purpose. I love writing stories and solving creative problems.
I created To Infinity Studios to write and self publish my own books under. From blogs, to releasing our mini-issue (single page story), to creating our first successful Kickstarter, and working hard on our first book (The Wild Cosmos Act 1), To Infinity Studios has already had a busy year, in the best way!
Releasing our first mini issue was huge for us. It’s a single page story with heart and meaning. It was everyone’s first look at our story and style of storytelling. It’s received a positive reception and even made me sort of fall into starting my first Kickstarter! Kickstarter had a make/100 initiative in January, and it coincided with the release of our min-issue perfectly. I just had to jump on the opportunity to get some experience with Kickstarter. 20 days later and we successfully funded the 11x15 print of our mini issue.
Now with that Kickstarter and mini issue out of the way, we are working harder than ever on our first book -- The Wild Cosmos Act 1. It’s set in a wild west version of space. The void is full of gangs, smugglers and pirates. This story follows captain Cooper and his crew of five. Production is moving along great! We’ll have a ton to share in the coming months.
I hope, with To Infinity Studios, I’ll be able to create my own take on comics and where I think this industry can go. I think there’s so much room for growth in comics; from the types of stories that are told, to the page design in the books. I love writing sci-fi and fantasy, and hope to write meaningful and emotional experiences inside those worlds - Maybe even collaborating on a book with Ingram Comics in the future!
It’s a great time to be an indie creator, with self-publishing, webcomics, and Kickstarter, the possibilities are infinite. This indie comics community is a small, yet passionate one. You don’t get into comics for the fortune or fame, you get into it because you love it!
