These are common questions I see asked on other sites that produce content in the same media format as me.

What Program do you use to draw the comic?

I used Manga studio 5, then I decided to upgrade my current Manga studio to the EX version, only to find that the digital version is no longer being sold. My only option from there was to upgrade to Clip Studio Paint Pro. Clip Studio is a re-branded version of Manga Studio 5, same features/tools/processes

Didn’t expect an answer like that did you?

How did you come up with the title “Bluenecks?”

Around 2003-04 or so, I was really into the Blue Collar comedy tour , Particularly Jeff Foxworthy’s “You might be a Redneck” joke. Side note: If you look down on me because I like these comedians I have a message for you, “That’s funny right there, I don’t care who you are that’s funny.” “The Bluenecks” came about when I asked a question to myself: What would you call Rednecks from another planet? That is how the name came about.

Where do you get your ideas from?

My mind…I think this is the wrong question to ask, I come up with ideas based on the type of strip I want to make: The Bluenecks has story driven strips, gag strips and commentary strips. With what I just said, you can see why this question is not as easy to answer. I’m a nerd and not afraid to admit it, when I make commentary strips it is usually related to my Nostalgia or current events. When I make gag strips, it has a lot to do with “I thought it was funny so I made it.” When I make story arcs it is easier to make strips because they have a narrative. So I guess my answer is, I pick from the three choices and if it’s worth the effort making, make it.

Do you do this for a living?

No, The Bluenecks is a hobby, would I like to make money with it? Sure! I currently have a day job as a Software engineer working mostly with Web Technologies like SharePoint, WordPress, and Javascript
