Convention Season Aftermath

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 27, 2014, 3:53 PM


Thank you to everyone who came out to support me at the recent Super Sac-Con, Oct 18 & 19! Being my last show of the year, it was nice to see some friendly faces, as well as get to know some new fans.

Super Sac-Con

Shane and I were both very excited to debut The Black and White Edition of Birdland #1. He will be wrapping up some last lingering Kickstarter bits and bobs and sending those rewards out soon. Keep checking the Kickstarter page for those updates. You can also follow Shane's work on the Birdland Comic Facebook.

I can't tell you how proud I am of the coloring work I've already done, as well as the lettering throughout the book. But my work is only just beginning! Work now starts on coloring all 24 pages for the Birdland in Technicolor edition of the book.

In the meantime, while I enjoy a break from conventions, I'll also be working on my own comic: Blind Follies: The Flower and Death, my own personal take on the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone. The scripts for books 1 & 2 are both complete, with future scripts all outlined and storyboarding for book 1 finally in production.

I'll continue to post sketches and updates as the work continues. Being my first full length solo project, it's bound to take me some time, lots of tea, and plenty of trial and error. I only hope, in the end, I'll bring out a side of the old stories that's both romantic and refreshing, as enjoyable as it is personal.

Oh no no that's okay. Actually, I knew you and many artists will be at the con, but because of unexpected turn of events, I had no chance to meet anyone. I didn't even get the chance to chat with Gisu, nathan and michael who sat on a table right next to me!

Unexpected turn of events? Hope all was ok! But yeah, I was bogged down with commissions and when I could leave my table I had to run specific shopping errands, so not much visiting other artists either.
