So…most of the time I sketch with paper and then start the comics, but this time I also decided to draw a draft without being bound by any brand or style guidelines. I appreciated this freedom and the time savings. I do like the black and white look, so I might adopt this in the future at some time. If not for Shouty, then maybe for when I start my own blog. How do you think it compares with the official version?
Midwest Book Review – (The Health Shelf)
“Life of Shouty: Food & Fitness” is the second book in a series titled the Life of Shouty, a saga about a being who “goes from overweight and overwhelmed to fit and focused.” Written in inspirational, piquant verse and filled with large, colorful cartoon-like illustrations, “Life of Shouty: Food & Fitness” is characterized by very familiar dilemmas facing a junk food eater who strives for better, healthier choices in his life. Although Shouty has a faintly alien cone-head-like appearance, this trait is somehow endearing, and readers will identify with his battles with his personified midnight junk food cravings. “Life of Shouty: Food & Fitness” is a quirky manual to self empowerment and improved health. “Life of Shouty” may be written for a young audience, but its appeal will cross generation boundaries.
Midwest Book Review – (Reviewer’s Choice)
“Life of Shouty: Good Habits” is author NeonSeon’s answer to the couch potato syndrome. Shouty is someone we all recognize, a procrastinator. Will he manage to face his inactivity and decisionlessness and begin a positive constructive life with new good habits? Not without a struggle, embellished and emblazoned by the blunt, comic strip art of NeonSeon which does more than poke fun at Shouty. In fact, art (by NeonSeon) mirrors Shouty, and it’s both painful and scary. Yes, Shouty can take charge, accept responsibility, and change, and it is worth the effort. “Life of Shouty: Good Habits” is aimed at a juvenile audience age 8 and up, but adults will like it too.
