I've dug myself under for a while to make as much progress as possible on Haunter of Dreams. In the meantime, many things came between me and my project. Myre is plowing her way through Germany, soon Europe, and by tomorrow noon, I will be at Comic Salon Erlangen for book-signings and presentations! If you happen to be around there, I'd love to meet you! Among several book signing appointments, I will hold a long presentation about Myre, character design and plottings comics. I also got the honour to be invited for The ComicTalk with Hella von Sinnen, who has been on television and stage as a comedian ever since I can remember. All of that is happening tomorrow and over the next four days. Basically, I'm going from comic-caveman-mode into full life, which leaves me both nervous but excited! I hope that there will be plenty of photos which I can share over on Twitter and Instagram then.
But anyway, to everyone who is interested in any type of presentation about character design and comics, I'm planning on holding one at Eurofurence this year, too! Wish me luck that I will get a SIG spot there. If not, I will plan around that and let you know about possible ideas on a meetup with me.
Haunter of Dreams:
I have 30 pages left to do for the comic to be complete! Even though it's one of my most complex creations thus far, I'm adamant to complete the graphic novel this year. After Erlangen, things should be running smoothly for me again. Inbetween everything happening around Myre, I underwent a big surgery from which I'm still healing, and my computer decided to die on me also. Luckily, living together with tech guys, I was able to get my work station running again. I do hope that my PC will survive Haunter of Dreams. After that, I shall wave it good bye and set up for Myre 2.
Wish me luck that my road to the completion of HoD will be smoother from now. I'm looking forward to what is to come, and I'm happy that I can take you along with me.
That being said, have a lovely day! And stay out of that sun! It wants to bake you!
Hope to see you in Erlangen!
