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.

Hey, I saw your work at Fanime. Great stuff!
SarahRStraub Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2013
Aw, thanks so much! :)

It was so great meeting you in person at Fanime Saturday. I hope the rest of your con went well and I wish you and Lily all the best!
SarahRStraub Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2013
Thank you very much! I had a lot of fun at the Con. And I hope she'll be ok too.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you at Fanime next week, I'll be cosplaying as Big Macintosh. How's your cat doing?
SarahRStraub Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013
Not sure if I saw you at Fanime, but Lily is doing ok. She's all better after a painful recovery and is finally able to run, jump, and play with our other cat again. I may have to take her back in to get another small lump looked at. I suspect this one might be a stitch left behind that was healed over, but we'll see.
Spyrofan1310 Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
No pictures with me so far. But if you look at my deviantart ID picture, my Big Mac cosplay is right there, so you'll know who I am if any pictures of me DO get posted, or if you passed me in the convention center.
Spyrofan1310 Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2013
I'm terribly sorry. I had no idea where the art gallery was because it wasn't in the convention center this year. But I'm glad your cat is better now. Although I may be in some posted pictures of the MLP FIM gathering, I haven't checked yet.
SarahRStraub Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
Yeah, they were supposed to post tons of signage directing traffic to the artist alley and not only did they not do that, but we weren't even on the official map of the convention! So that was pretty upsetting... I'm sure I'll see you at another convention eventually. :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty! I hope she's okay! :/ Spending money we don't have on our little babies is worth it.
SarahRStraub Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2013
Thanks. And yeah, the cost hurts, but not as much as it would hurt to lose her. Gotten a lot of support though, so I should be able to slowly work off the cost.

A little late, but i wanted to say how awesome it was to see you at Emerald City! I started following you last year on DeviantArt after seeing you there, and to see all the new concepts you had for 'Blind Follies' made me so happy! Best of luck with your job, and hopefully a turn-around after what sounded like a pile of bad stuff last year.
SarahRStraub Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013
Aw, it's never too late to offer some encouragement! :hug: I really appreciate the kind words and will continue trying to work on the comic. The beginning of this year has also had it's obstacles, but I'm still truckin' on through!
