Seeing as how it’s US daylight savings time, I expect this to be multiplied by a thousand this week.
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.
The original strip #710 has been removed by request.
I’m incredibly sleep deprived and I won’t be home from work until quite late tonight, but I’ll do my best to have a replacement comic up soon.
EDIT: Replacement comic is up! If you tuned in Monday and saw zombies, you might want to backtrack and check out the replacement on Wednesday :)
As a reminder, I’ll be in the artist alley at Fanime this year! I will be at table #17 the entirety of Memorial Day Weekend. The Official Map is here, and an easier to read fan-made map is here. On the fan-made map I’m in G block.
Merch-wise, I’ll have my one-shot minicomics (the Scribble holiday one-shot because Scribble is fashionable for all seasons, the out-of-print one-shot comics collection, and Tiny Girl Robot Love), Scribble buttons, issues 1 and 2 of Hey Derby Girl, prints and miniprints, a limited number of Erstwhile hardcovers, on-site commissions while time and energy allow, and a random assortment of original comic art for sale (including some of the original painted pages for Death of the Little Hen). If you’ll be attending Fanime and you have a specific page you’d like to purchase, please email me by Wednesday night and I’ll make sure I bring it along :)
Other than that, I expect to return next week with fodder for future comics. I have not actually attended an anime con in like 10 years. I suspect there will be culture shock :p
