For years I’ve been in the habit of taking shorthand notes whenever something has crossed my mind that might make a cute Littlest Elle. I’m always coming across these idea lists when I reach into my bag or go through my desk and sometimes I have no actual memory of what they were intended to mean.
For West Coast locals, I’ll be tabling at table 203 in the Fanime Artist Alley over Memorial Day Weekend :)
I will have my usual various and sundry goodies including my special convention watercolor commissions. Folks interested in getting custom art may want to stop by earlier in the weekend as I do have a limit to how many I can offer :)
After giving it some thought, I’ve decided that the Littlest Elle will be ending this August. August 11 will be the 7th anniversary of doing this comic and somehow that feels like the perfect time to stop :)
Thank you so much, everybody, for reading and supporting this comic over the years. Working on this comic has been a really amazing experience and I’m proud of everything I’ve accomplished.
Here’s to the next few months!
One of the other webcomics I work on, the Erstwhile fairytale anthology, is kickstarting a second print collection of our comics! Speaking from experience, volume 1 has some serious bookshelf appeal so volume 2 should be awesome :)
The collection will include my versions of Brother & Sister and Death of the Little Hen. There are also some great incentives for backers, like art commissions, plushies of one of my characters from the Singing Springing Lark, and some paper dolls drawn by Louisa! And hey, if we exceed our goal I will draw a new never-before-seen-online short comic about some super lazy princes ;)
I will be there with minicomics, Erstwhile volume 1, some original comic pages, and tiny original paintings. I’m available for a limited number of commissions so swing by early if you want to grab one!
Obligatory self-promotion post!
So one of the big things I’ve been working on outside of Littlest Elle is a 40ish page full watercolor comic adaptation of the fairytale The Singing Springing Lark. It launched this month at Erstwhile Tales and it’s currently updating Mondays and Thursdays. It takes a really long time to produce a watercolor page and I’m ridiculously proud of the outcome thus far (I’m still working on it ^_^;; ).
In other news, as mentioned in a previous comic, I broke my solemn vow never to get a tumblr and… got a tumblr. This is a terrible idea (I’m an internet addict, so tumblr is like tailor made to destroy me), but it’s refreshing to post my art in a venue where people might actually see it. So, uh, yes, that’s a place to find more of my work now :)
Other upcoming stuff:
I’ll be tabling at SPX in just a few weeks! I’m sharing with CJ of City of Cards. It’s my first real travelin’ con. Be gentle, East Coast, be gentle.
