Rehab exit interview: Ive Sorocuk

December 30, 2007

1. Briefly describe your experience at comic artist rehab:

I had a ball! It felt great doing regular one page strips again, I really hope it becomes a habit for me. Early on I let myself get stressed out about the sizes and the layout but playing around with them is where I found the most fun.

As a reader it was cool to see what the others were up to each day. Tim was the only other artist this round I had heard of before and I’m a fan so it was great seeing regular strips by him while it lasted.

2. What, if anything, did you learn from the program?

I learned that deadlines work. I learned that the main problem I have in making comics is in the actual starting. Once I have one doodled out it takes so much weight off my brain.

3. Which one of your own comics are you most pleased with and why?

The second one I did with Bandit Ghost. It was such a simple easy to draw one and I love how it turned out coloured. “Story”wise it has a beat to it that I like and is unlike most comics I do.

4. Which one of your own comics are you least pleased with and why?

The New World War strip on Day Nineteen. I just feel I have drawn that same strip a million times. I’m setting things up and referencing past strips without adding anything and it ends without a punchline. I do like the look of it but wish I had spent as long writing it than I did drawing it.

5. Do you hope to keep up drawing comics after rehab? If so, how often.

Yeah! I planned to use Comic Artist Rehab to complete at least one story I have going so i’ll get onto that. I’m thinking of at least two pages a week for the next few months.

6. Any suggestions for future rounds?


Round Two: Day Twenty Seven

December 27, 2007

I did this page to slip in into the middle of a story I started at the beginning of the year and has become the longest and most convoluted thing I’ve ever done. It starts around here.

Merry Christmas everybody!

Round Two: Day Nineteen

December 19, 2007

This is the closest I have come to completely forgetting to update.

Round Two: Day Fifteen

December 15, 2007

If the big size is bothering anybody let me know.

Round Two: Day Eleven

Round Two: Day Seven

December 7, 2007

The layout is me trying to find a way around the weird resizing thing that seems to be happening on all the strips.

Round Two: Day Three

December 3, 2007

More New World War here for those new to me. There’s a few series of comics I want to collect into books but don’t have enough strips of so I’ll be using the rehab schedule to up the page count on them.

I went all out colouring this. Do not expect that in every update from me.

Artist Introduction: Ive Sorocuk

November 30, 2007


I’ve been in love with reading and making comics for as long as I can remember. Recently I’ve also been making badges, t-shirts and toys with comics falling behind.

I made comics every weekday for over two years as part of the Daily Grind Iron Man Challenge and since dropping out have had trouble making comics regularly again so I’m checking into rehab to get it together. I have NO idea what my rehab comics will be about yet.
