I wanted to take a moment to give you guys an update regarding the posting frequency for comics over the next couple months. This April I'm scheduled to take the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam for my discipline in Civil/Geotechnical engineering. To prepare for this beast, I've enrolled in an evening review course which began last week and will continue through the exam date.
Over this time, I will not be adhering to the weekly posting frequency (Wednesdays). I will continue producing and posting content as the time presents itself, and intend to resume regular posts following the exam in April.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
Hello readers and happy inktober!
First of all, a big thank-you for checking out the adventures of the Geology Penguin and his companions- its been a joy creating regular content and I hope you've enjoyed reading :)
Now for two quick news items:
1) You can now follow the Geology Penguin's antics on instagram! (Search 'geologypenguin'). The feed will feature each week's comic post as well as art I create on the side- follow the link below to jump on board!
2) This post marks the third installment of this year's inktober challenge: a daily drawing challenge for the month of October. Each day's installment will be featured on the Geology Penguin instagram page, take a look and let me know what you think!
That's all for now :)
For those that may be following the geology penguin's move from social media, welcome to his new home! I hope you enjoy the new digs and the ease at which you can enjoy all of the adventures in one place :)
For anyone new to the geology penguin, I'll provide a quick word about myself and the start of geology penguin's adventure:
An engineering geologist by trade, I've never shaken my love of drawing. During a lecture in university, my professor recounted some of his experience mapping bedrock outcrops in Antarctica and the idea for a geologically-savoy penguin field partner was born. For years the geology penguin has lived on in a discontinuous series of doodles and field sketches in class and in the field as my career has developed. Over that period, the cast of characters has slowly grown to include the octopus intern (and geology penguin's field partner), the instrumentation mouse (a character developed by a coworker who specializes in instrumentation), a toucan (a bubbly coworker highly sensitive to cold weather) and many more. The adventures of geology penguin and his friends largely stem from my own experiences in industry but allow me to explore challenges from a completely different angle.
A general note regarding the structure and update frequency of these posts. At the time of this writing there is no over-arching plot to follow, each post will be a self-contained a story that can be viewed in any order. As this adventure evolves, a plot or theme may develop but as of now these posts are relatively stand-alone.
The site will be updated weekly (by end of day WEDNESDAYS).
For now, a few drawings from 'the archive' will be posted until the first official post is made this week.
I hope you enjoy the geology penguin's antics- stay tuned for adventure!
