Yes so it took a bit longer than I thought it would! But the first part of the comic is finally done, yey. I really want to write something on here now but I’ve been up since seven this morning, working on this thing non-stop and so right now my brain is simply refusing to do anything else.
Anyway please click on here for the first part of the story. Hope you enjoy it.

Special thanks to Asad and Kamyar.

Congratulation Shirin, a real novelty. The idea is, as far as I know quite new, unique, original and virgin as we say. How long do we have to wait for the next part? The only very little problem for me, and that's just mine I'm sure, is that it's a bit too wide for me; I have to scroll left and right all the time! just kidding. But if you need to hear a real suggestion... but you have noticed it yourself I'm sure and maybe you showed the mother at the left side,in 6, for some reason that we'll find out next.Anything can happen in such a new, unique story, am I righ?

I thought it was great, really loved it, for some reason it reminded me of pokey the penguin.

Thanks Linda I better hurry up with the next bit then :-)

Gazankhan I think you have to scroll from side to side because the resolution on your monitor is 800/600 which is the lowest resolution I think. Others normally have their monitors on higher resolutions and that’s why I did it this size so the writing wouldn’t be too small for them. I know that must be pretty annoying for you though so maybe for the next one I do two versions with different resolutions. Thanks for letting me know about that anyway. If you want I could save them all again with different resolutions and email them to you.
I don’t think the next part will take as long as this because from now on I can do like two pages and post them. For this first one I wanted to put a few pages on so you could get to know the characters.

Thanks a lot Asad. It is a bit like that Pokey! It might be the simplicity that does it.

No need to do anything my friend, thanks. I have saved them for myself and my wife to read and read, thank you.

I really like your drawing style. Although it appears simple, it is very lively and vibrant. The idea of mind backups is great. But I haven’t figured out the story of the apple tree yet (why am I assuming that there must be a story?). Maybe I should spend more time on it. ;) I am excited to see the future parts. Great job!

GazanKhan said...

Another question! Sorry , but there are so many thing that I don't know. How is it that when you click on some of the BLUE NAMES like ASAD and me too, doesn't take us to their blog?

You and your art is... are ... adorable. You will send me an autographed copy, wont you ? One day I will tell you a "real children's story" that happened in my backyard (old house), between me and tiny round "things" which I thought were flowers seeds - and took care of them accordingly - , but turned out to be .......... :-) soooooo funny :-); besides ... it ends with a good "moral of the story is ...!!!!". We can write it together and you will do me the honour of illustrating the book. What do you think?

Shirin said...

Sure you can use them Foulla :-) Can you just tell me beforehand which one you want to use please?

Dr O2, some of the colours are from fabrics, wires, cotton wool and just anything I can find, scanned into to the computer and the rest are watercolours.

Tima joon that sounds like an offer I can’t refuse :-) I think I can guess what those round things were. And if they are what I think they are, I know someone who ate them once thinking they were raisins!

Gazankhan if you sign in as a Blogger, then clicking on your name will automatically take people to your profile page, but if you sign in as Other and type in your URL, then people will be taken straight to your weblog.

Thanks Aydin. Yes you are very right to think that there is a story behind the apple tree as indeed there is. Everything will become a lot more clear in the future episodes ;-)

Tima said...

Great :-) I'll email you my "encounter" ... and yes ... you guessed right!!! Imagine me ... taking them for "seeds", handling them with such care and affection, planting them and watering them ...:-) Until one day ...:-)
Moral of the story is "things are not always what they seem to be"!!!!
