Patreon Goal Changed to fund 1 extra page per month & Chapter 22 is almost upon us!
I still have time to change it back to wallpapers ( or any other suggestions) before the 1st if Patrons have any qualms.
I have been plugging away at the script and thumbnails for the upcoming Chapter 22. As a result of overcrowding the pages on this recent Chapter, I have regulated my per page panel count average to 5 panels instead of the 7 average of Chapter 21. The layout will read more comfortably, and page production times should speed up as I regain my momentum.
As 21 will soon be ending, and 22 beginning, there will be a bit of "filler art" to allow for me to regain the week lost in my buffer this last month and also finish pre-production for Chapter 22. This also goes along with a recent movement to have breaks between Chapters for creators. Breaks are healthy and prevent burnout. Please support your favorite creators in taking production breaks.
Chapter 22 is exciting. Devil's Cake is forecasted to end in about 8 more chapters (or so) and the turning point of this tale of romantic gridlock is upon us! Change is in the air, but does it smell of thousands of red red roses or months old garbage never taken to the curb? Change is change, only our heroes can decide what to make of it!
The bare bones of the Patreon are now set up.
And the Cash donate button is done with and gone, since it wasn't letting people donate, anyways!!!
You can now find the link to that in the upper left menu bar, and I plan to make a proper button in the future...
There will be features/ new rewards added to the Patreon as it grows, so stay tuned.
The most intriguing at the moment is Constant Kea: pdfs of process and previews of the next pages in the buffer for 5$ subscribers.
Let's see how this goes, because first and foremost: the pages getting done are always top priority.
I also mean to try and submit to Hiveworks. Meaning, and achieving are different matters in my pile of interview/auditions for jobs and immigration paperwork, but hey... I'm optimistic? And these chances only come around once in a while, so I'd best give it a go!
In other news: Angi's job hunt and applications to stay in CAN are on! I'll be getting used to new life changes, and trying to make those changes here. So, the basic focus for DC will always be to get a page a week done first.
Comics are like breathing , yo.
I'll be attending (kinda tabling) TCAF 2016
I'll be wandering around TCAF 2016, Toronto, ON, CAN, again this year.
Something different is that my short comic, Bells, will be on the Toronto Comic Anthology Vol3 book https://www.facebook.com/torontocomicsanthology/ at their table!! That means I will have a signing time at that table where people can find me.
Bells is about a hipster couple who are headed for the typical hipster relationship ending. It features an adorable, agender hero and a handsome love interest(antagonist), and takes place on the stylish Queen St. W of Toronto. IT'S LIKE YOU'RE REALLY THERE!) The story includes my usual writing antics, but with some actual resolving, because, hey, it's a short story, don't got time for drawn out antics like Devil's Cake. "Sorry about that, but, Please, come and check it out, eh?"
So, if you have a copy of Devil's Cake, and you'd like me to draw your favorite character in there... or just come say 'hi' you can get the signing time from the table. (will post here if I have those times before this weekend.)
The short comic I did for Dusk in Kalevia as apart of Sparkler Monthly: http://sparklermonthly.com/shop/books/dusk-in-kalevia-paperback/ Will be available for sale at the Chromatic Press/Sparkler Monthly table the very same TCAF! Emily Compton wrote this amazing (and deep<3) book about Gay Spy Angels (zomg!) and there are sexy illustrations by Onorobo Sempai in there!!! So, you'll wanna pic this baby up!!
Emily also wrote the script for the comic I did thar, so please enjoy the gun training.... (and ....tension????)
Hope to see some of you at the show!
Devil's Cake returns May 24th!
!!!!!!!May 24th Devil's Cake will begin 1 page updates once a week again!!!!!!!
The time between now and then will be spent on a few revisions, a face lift for the site's artwork/banner image, building a buffer of pages, a Patreon, and submission to Hiveworks! Whoa!
All this is being built in a careful manner to make the most manageable workload for the long run. I would like to finish Devil's Cake and post more of my comics from hereafter<3
