Lord, I can't believe it's already November 5th. Time flies I guess.
First order of business: COMMISSION ARE OPEN! I will draw you stuff. Want a superhero, werewolf or grandkid? I can do that. Want a superhero werewolf grandkid? Even better. Send me a message or email: Killustrationstudios@gmail.com. I've got time right up until a couple weeks before Christmas, so start sending me commission ideas now!
Secondly, I'm about halfway through the Durontus Rising pencils! I'm thinking about changing the name simply because people are having a hard time with 'Durontus'. Still feedback has been really positive thus far. I will be adding more pages on DA soon, too. When all is said and done, I hope to have published, physical copies available for next summer's G-Fest. If a publisher is not interested, I plan on self publishing. I may also be posting finished pages online as a webcomic...
Finally, Detroit Fanfare was last weekend. Overall, we didn't do as well as we could have, but it seemed like that was the case for many of the artists there. I was getting complimented about the Durontus pages left and right, and honestly that was probably what got me the most attention over the weekend. Still, if you're in the Detroit area, Gary Reed is a good guy and puts on a good show. Got to hang out with too many friends to mention, too.

Remember, get those commissions in! I've got the time, so send me your craziest, most clever ideas! Looking forward to it!
People are having trouble with Durontus? That's too bad, I liked that name. It just sounds like the name a dinosaur would have, and it seemed easy enough to pronounce. Crocazill, on the other hand, gets everyone tongue-tied, be it Croczilla, Crocazile, etc. So I'm trying to come up for a new name for that character myself. It's weird because H. P. Lovecraft came up with words like Cthulhu, Azathoth and Nyarlathotep and people seem to have no trouble pronouncing those.
