Q: What is Lattice?
A: A webcomic, first and foremost. Pure entertainment for the masses, as well as a way for me to continue my eternal struggle to become a better artist, both through the visual and written mediums.
Q: Who are you?
A: Roland William Lowery, author and artist of Lattice, author and former artist of Role of the Die, and all around decent guy. I also go by the moniker of Jim North in some regions of reality.
Q: Why can't I see any images on your site?
A: I have a separate FAQ set up to handle this problem.
Q: How do you make Lattice?
A: Currently, I use only a handful of tools . . . paper, mechanical pencil, ruler, and t-square. As I learn more about what I'm doing and settle into the groove of things, I may expand this repetoire to include graphite pencils, charcoal, another other such artistic nicities. For now I'm keeping it pretty simple, however.
Q: What about color?
A: Nope. I never planned for Lattice to be in color, and I will never change my mind about that. You'll just have to get used to everything being black and white. And maybe shades of grey here and there. If I ever do use color, it will only be for a specific instance that I already have in mind, and nothing else. And that's only if I decide to go that direction. So there.
Q: What's in store for Lattice?
A: If you're asking about future storylines, forgeddaboudit. I shall not be divulging my secrets anywhere except in the strip itself.
If you're asking about just in general, however, I hope to eventually have enough pages to bother making an actual graphic novel to sell to folks, as well as other bits and pieces of merchandise as well. I also plan to keep advancing artistically through my work here, both with my drawing and my writing. I'm also thinking "movie deal with Columbia Pictures" at some point, but that's probably a good ways down the road yet.
