My cartoon series, the Exaggeration Diaries, are based on events in my life but exaggerated an awful lot, hence the name. Depicted by my alter ego Nay, he deals with the breakup from his girlfriend by forming a band known as the Samoan Ninja Alchemists.

Despite the funny situations and cute characters, their based on my own testimonies about my life and experiences. In short, the Exaggeration Diaries are my expression designed in a way so that they don't make me sound like a wining bitch.

Random Favourites

It's pretty crappy on my part just how lazy I have become with my work, especially as this is the first journal I've done in almost 5 months. Lately I have been pretty good at doing one comic every week and I want to keep it like that. So here is my action plan.

  1. One comic every week on Sunday, no excuses
    Speaks for itself

  2. Setting a specific time to post on Sunday
    Haven't decided when yet, but I am currently posting first thing in the morning before I go to work. This sucks as initially no one sees it because no one is up at 8 in the morning on a Sunday. As DA and Tumblr have resources to set a time to automatically upload stuff, I will be using that alot more.

  3. Alternate comics each week
    I have started my secondary comic about the record store (the name is still pending), so the plan is to alternate that with TXD each week. So one week will be TXD on Sunday, then the next week will have the other comic. I would love to do both more often but I still have work so what can you do.

  4. Be ahead on drawn comics by several weeks
    Right now, I am writing and drawing a comic on the week it is being posted, it's not ideal. I wanna be able to be ahead in my comics and have a backlog of maybe 3 or 4 comics to fall back on.

  5. Work on other artwork and illustrations
    The big reason for wanting to be ahead on my comics is so I will have the time to do stuff inbetween. Stuff such as more watcher drawings, as well as trades and commissions. I like doing them and it gives something back to those who follow my work.

  6. Utilizing other sites, suck as Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter (especially Tumblr)
    The problem with DeviantArt is I have had many followers over the years, quit using the site for one reason or an other. I hope that advertising my various other platforms will keep people, even if they leave one site. Reddit is also a possibility but I will keeping away from those Webcomic websites as I feel I will just be buried.

  7. Psychical book 
    It's way too early to talk about selling books and things like that. What I mean is to make a book of my uploaded comics to show to people when I go to cons or meet and greets. I hate having to get out my phone to show people my work as its the only digital device I have on hand when I'm out.

  8. Redoing old comics
    This is linked to the previous point. Some of my old comics are way too long and are done in a format where I would never be able to get them printed. I want to make it clear though that I will not be redoing an old comic and posting it new on Sunday, nor will I delete the previous version. This is for printing purposes.

  9. Lastly, you guys
    Making comics has been the best thing I've ever done because it has introduced me to so many of you guys. Even to the point of meeting you guys in first (my girlfriend Esther was the first person to ever give me a commission). Its why it's been heartbreaking to know that because of getting lazy and not doing comics, I have neglected you and I really dont want that to happen. It's why I wanna do grand watcher drawings and trades because it will keep you guys reading my stuff and most importantly, spreading it around.

    So that's it, I will keep this here to motivate me and show my goals

    Till next time

    Nay :)

Ahoy, I'm Nathan.

I'm a cartoonist with my own series of cartoons and comics called the Exaggeration Diaries. In short, I'm a relatively nice guy and always up for a chat about randomness

Hope you enjoy my work and at the same time, teach you a lesson or two :)

Hi Nay,

For some reason I was thinking about a video you had on youtube where you had to write an assignment and the end result was a paper written in "wingdings". Is it still up? Hope you guys are doing well.
