On the Bright Side

by DanaBoBana
Jacob is a shy sixteen year old student who isn't very popular at school. Looking forward to the day he graduates, he keeps a low profile just wanting to get through the rest of it quietly. One day coming home from school, Jacob sees a family is moving in next door. He notices the oldest daughter is a cute girl around the same age as him. To his surprise, the girl named Kaylee used to be his best childhood friend! It's been eight years since they have last seen each other, but now they will be next door neighbors. Kaylee, who has an outgoing and friendly personality will make Jacob's quiet, boring life a little more interesting.

Happy New Year everyone!

Since it's a new year, I got a new YouTube account! I had an account but only had like two videos and they were really old. I have a couple videos up, but I plan to post a video a week on drawing, webcomics, and talking about other stuff. :3

Here's >> my channel << and also a link at the top of the site.

Also, I realized that it's been a little over 10 years since I have been on Smack Jeeves! Apparently, I created this account back in December 2008. Man, time flies!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! :D Now that I am done baking, shopping, wrapping presents, I can start working on more pages again. :3

@CAMLOST: Hope you had a lovely one! <3
@Sofysenpai: Aww thanks! Yep, I am glad to be getting back into this and moving this story forward. :3

For those of you who don't already know, I was laid off back in October. I was in HR for about 5 years, but now I am job hunting looking for something in the design field. While I am unemployed, I am taking on some freelance design work and of course working on this webcomic! I am working really hard, hoping that one day I can freelance and draw comics full time. I did, however, have the next several chapters written out, so expect updates! I am going to get back on a weekly schedule but really would like to start posting a few times a week.

I also have the first volume of OTBS on sale. There is a link on the right side of this webpage or through my shop link. Get a copy for yourself (or for a friend for Christmas!) and it'll help support me so I can keep this comic going. :3

Thanks, everyone! <3

first!
yay!!! :D So happy you are posting! I will post soon too!!
aww hehe blushing Kaylee!!
Oh, Gundam; good choice! that property tends to have some real good things to analyze about any given plot, mostly about one aspect or another regarding just how messed up war can get.
From the way Kaylee is blushing at the suggestion, I'd wager it actually is quite similar (having watched it in the entirety myself, there are some.... *awkward* moments in that series, especially if you were to watch it with mixed company) that being said, it's also very much an innocent love story (also, with the amount of fan content and referencing of other anime japan's media does, you're good with this kind of name dropping)
Robits! (which is nothing like Chobits by the way! Ha ha!)

@makogun2000: It's going to be more of a Gundam kind of show. Although there are some cute moments, I think it would be a little too awkward for them to watch a show like Chobits together! XD She just gets bashful sharing her interests. :) And thanks! I do plan to reference/parody a lot more, because it's fun!
awwww

The start of Chapter 6! Will be posting a new page later today. :3

**By the way, getting rid of the argyle/checkered pattern in the shirt she had in the last chapter. Waaaay to much work to draw and tone and also looked inconsistent each time I drew it. XP I will be going back over to tone the first half of chapter 5 anyway. Those tones unfortunately turn out distorted when they print out and I eventually want to get volume 2 printed. :)
First!!
Welcome back, nerd!! :D

Poor Jacob, its ok ::huggles::
At the end of chapter 5! This chapter is a little shorter than the others were, but I felt like this was a good place to end this one. Only took me 6 years to finish this chapter. XP

But here we are and I feel my art is continuing to evolve, so that's good!
Chase is such a good boy! :3
welcome back !!!
Whoa, long time no see!

It feel nice every time to see an old comic show up at the top of my newsreader again. It was 342 days from the last page, I think; no pressure, though.
