Great work! I really like the dark style. Do you post your scripts or pitches anywhere? I'm a "wannabe" comic writer as well.
Best,

All of my current projects have cover artists, but if you ever find the time to do a pinup or a mini-comic, let me know! :)

Can you drop me a note with your email? I can send you a Google Doc link to a page that organizes everything nicely so you won't waste time digging. :)

Great stuff. I think that logo is really sweet. Wish more people took the time to work out better logos.

You just made my day. Seriously.

Thank you. I'm really proud of the book, thanks 99.44% to the artists.

I also worked hard on the logo (it's not a strength). Since I wasn't sure it was readable enough, it's great to have someone with your eye say nice things about it.

Someone else pointed out another photo this one seems to parallel-- the ones of Ayame writing her name in Japanese script in ink on paper. I don't think she knew of those photos, though.

The concept for the cover came from *MischievousMartian-- I think she did a great job of visualizing the basic ideas in the story! I'm glad you agree.
