LONG TIME NO POST! For those who are interested, yours truly has been hard at work on his graphic novel based on the HANAKO-SAN legend and has A FULL SCRIPT! About a third of my ghost story of the famous yurei is storyboarded and I hope to be making more progress in the next year. So GLAD TIDINGS TO ALL! Hope you all had a great 2014-2015, and will have a wonderful 2016!
It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing a temporary suspension of regular updates. I have discovered to my horror that a 62-year old man has a limit on the amount of things he can accomplish in a day–or a week–or a month. During the last few months, I have been unable to work on the project closest to my heart, the story of Hanako-san, while working on Revolutionary Grrl at the high level of polish that it requires. I have not only been trying to work on these projects, but also participate as an artist at anime and comic conventions at the same time as living a normal life, with cars, house and loving spouse to attend to. After getting the flu, complicated with bronchitis, twice in two months AND getting shingles, I am forced to take stock and review my priorities. I am not giving up my blog work permanently. I will be posting rants and more pages of our Revolutionary hottie as I have time. There will be announcements on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit when I do. But this page will no longer be done on a weekly basis, but only when I have time to draw her or write a rant that I have to get out of my system. Thanks to everyone who followed me, this is not a goodbye, but simply a “see you later.”
Until the next update!
February 24 is out next cartoon date–the bronchitis is gone, but the shingles and eye infection remain. They should be better by Katsucon, Feb 14-16, at the Gaylord at Washington Harbor, MD, where I’ll have an artist alley table. At least I won’t HAVE to cosplay as the Phantom of the Opera at the table but between now and then I have to really scramble to get ready for the convention. Come on by if you’re at the con!
Well, as I said on my facebook page, I seem to have reckoned my recovery expectation without taking into account the idea that I would get the flu on top of the bronchitis, the which flu is characterized by horrible headaches and muscle pains. Not very conducive to drawing with a brush, I must say. On the other hand, I seem to have given up nicotine pretty thoroughly, which could only be a plus in my life. So I must beg your indulgence for one more week. In the meantime, I WILL be fully recovered by Katsucon, February 14-16 at the Gaylord at National Harbor Maryland, so if you are attending the con, please stop by my Artist Alley table and say hi (better yet, buy something ) I will have unframed prints, books and buttons at my table, but also framed prints in the Art Show.
Well, my intention to start back on Revolutionary Grrl this weekend was made without taking into account my customary winter case of bronchitis. But THIS time, I’ve switched completely over to e-cigarettes and have stopped smoking for the last week. Keep your fingers crossed, fans! And next weekend, we will begin our Grrl’s adventures anew!keep looking »
