EDIT: All orders have now shipped!

Hey guys!

I've got the books, and I've started drawing and shipping artist editions! Between finals and going home for spring break, it's gonna be slow going for a couple weeks. But I'll do my best to get them done at a good pace.
If you'd like to see some of the things I'm drawing in people's artist editions, I'm updating My Tumblr with those! So feel free to follow it, or favorite it, or watch it, or whatever it is you do with Tumblrs.

And once again, I went on a trip and forgot to take any good pictures! But that won't stop me from talking about it.

Emerald City Comic Con was really great! I got to meet a lot of people, see some old friends, do some networking, sell some books, and overall have a bitchin' time.

Naturally I did a lot of hanging out with the Halfpixel guys, both at and after the con. Scott is seriously my big bro, and the other guys were all great as always. I was constantly reminded of how lucky and serendipitous it is that I get to know and chill with these dudes. Thanks for letting me hang at your booth and making me feel welcome!



Lots of other people were also there! As the picture shows, KC Green was boothing across from us, along with the rest of the Topatoco crew. KC was the first person to buy a book from me at the con! I hope he doesn't regret said purchase!!


Aaron Diaz of Dresden Codak is also off to the side of that photo. I drew him a fanart like a big ol' fandork because his art is effing amazing. He drew me a sketch of Kim in return 'cause he is quite the dapper gentleman!


I also got to meet Magnolia Porter and Kel McDonald for the first time in person, but I didn't spend as much time with them as I wanted to! Luckily I'll be seeing Kel again for Anime Expo in July (Which, by the way, is the next con I'll be exhibiting at!)



I also ran around showing my coloring portfolio to some editors, who all had really positive comments and useful critiques for me. I definitely have some people to email and new portfolio pieces to prepare now!


I even sold out of the books I brought to the con! Surprisingly, everyone who had a character request wanted 42 in their book. Thanks to everyone who came and got a book, or just said hi! It's always great to meet readers IRL.
There were also a lot of kids who wandered over and flipped through it 'cause of the colorful colors. A few parents bought books for their kids; I did my best to warn them about the use of certain mostly-German cusswords.


Coincidentally, the head of my school's SEQA (aka comics, the major I'm in) department was also there! We talked about different things and I got to know him a bit better, which was really cool! It looks like SCAD might be buying a booth next year, which he said I'd be able to exhibit at. That'd be quite a savings, so I hope that works out. Otherwise, I'm definitely buying an artist alley table 'cause I can't NOT go back!

Anyway, just wanted to keep you guys posted on that front. On the art front, I've got some concept art for a pitch project up at my dA gallery if you're interested in that kinda thing!

The coming couple weeks are rife with finals, commissions, and artist editions (as soon as those books get here agh), so things are pretty nuts! But I FEEL STRONG AND EVERYTHING'S AWESOME!!!

EDIT: Reformatted as a blog post
Phewww and we thought I wouldn't have one today!

Meanwhile, in the land of truth:
I printed out one of those deviantart expression memes a while ago so that I might finally finish one. So this is formatted the way it is 'cause it's an 11x17 thing I scanned in. I also ended up using it as toning practice since I needed more of that!

SO! Wondering where you might find me at...
??

It could barely be easier to find me, really. I'll be hanging out with Scott at the Halfpixel booth most of the time. I made a map for your convenience! (click to enlarge)

I won't be actively soliciting my books, but I will have them in my backpack if you'd like to buy one! Just ask me and I'll do a sketch in it for ya and such. Even if you're not interested in buying one, please stop by and say hello! I've only done one small con so far, but even then I met some really cool and enthusiastic fans and it was great.


Meanwhile, how's about that drawing blog thing? This time I've got some school assignments for you, from my Environments, Props, 'n' Structures class. I refuse to explain these! But they are all rushed in their own way and I apologize Mr. Professor.

(The first 2 are from one project, the next 4 are from another)

The Best

Heya guys! I thought I'd put together a list of everyone who preordered, so you can check where you are in the line and whether I got your requests correct. (Sorry for the vague wording on those, but I figure people will know what they mean for their own orders.) If you have any questions or I got anything wrong, please email me any time!

On the progress of the books themselves:
I got the proof and first 20 copies of the book I ordered for Emerald City, and they look great! I'm currently awaiting the main shipment I ordered from Createspace of 60 books. They'll probably arrive while I'm at ECCC, so I'll be starting to draw in them once I get back. I plan to have them all done by the end of spring break at latest, which is March 20ish. I'll be updating the list as I complete and ship orders (which I'll probably do each Friday as there's lines to wait in and customs forms to fill out.)

And if you happen to be GOING to ECCC, I'll have some books there! So if you'd like to buy one there, stop by and I'll sketch in it for ya : ) I'll be sitting with Scott at booth 102 most of the time; just look for the girl with the newsboy cap and the deer-in-the-headlights expression!

...It's just now sinking in how long these will probably take me to complete XD But I'll do my best to get them out ASAP once I get started! What a wonderful "problem" to have, and I thank you guys so much for the support! Between this, the recent Artist Forum thing at SCAD, and my upcoming trip to Emerald City, I'm feeling like the future maybe isn't so terrifying after all!
