So! It's been a little quiet here lately, but here's some of what's going on.

EDIT: Oh, I forgot! I mentioned to a few folks that I'd be reviewing some new pens I got to experiment with. That review is here.

:bulletgreen: I started a sketch Tumblr. There will be one post a day there, and if there isn't, then someone can get a free sketch. It will have mostly studies for now because that's something I really need to get back into, but there will probably be miscellaneous character doodles as well.

:bulletgreen: Starting on the 17th, I will also be posting one sketch a day to Sketchbet, along with 24 other artists. It is basically going to be the same sort of sketch-a-day challenge, except there's more riding on the line if I miss a day, lol. I may or may not be reblogging my sketchbet posts to my main Tumblr. We'll see.

:bulletgreen: I am moving to Seattle the first week of January, which means IKKiCON will be my last Texas convention other than A-kon -- I'll fly back for A-kon, but probably not any of the other smaller Texas conventions. This makes me sad 'cause I think the con scene here is the only thing I'll miss when I leave. So you should all totally make plans to go to IKKiCON and see me off. ;)

:bulletgreen: If ever there was a traditional piece you wanted to buy from me; now is a good chance to inquire about it. I am throwing tons and tons of crap out in preparation for the move, and I don't know if I'll be bothered to take pictures of half of it before I toss it. This especially applies to anything in my gallery from before 2007.

:bulletgreen: Commissions are open again. Price list is here. Terms of service are here.

And, that's it for now? 'Sup with you lot?

Kiri, you write too much. 8C

My teal deer San Japan report is HERE for anyone bored enough to truck through it! On the bright side, I took a lot more pictures than usual, even if most of it is buried at the bottom? X

Thank you to :iconjohnyume: :iconcinnamoron: :iconchrislea: :iconblix-it: :iconwarhound-cmp: :iconjonstantenople: for helping me sort out all my last-minute accommodations for the weekend. You guys are amazing, and I really appreciate it!

Random shout-outs to :iconladre: :iconwhiteoblivion: :iconmossi-mo: :iconwicama: :iconradiuszero: :iconameartillustrations: :iconthe-gitz: :iconsilvernomiko: :iconalicechan: for just being awesome, idk. XD

And for real this time. No more cons until IKKiCON. I need to like... draw stuff. Make new things. And restock on everything else. You guys cleaned me out. x_x

Er, lol, San Japan

Sun Jul 31, 2011, 6:27 PM

Er, so apparently I'm going to, and will be tabling at, San Japan. It is this coming weekend in San Antonio. o_o

If anyone has room for one more in their hotel room and/or wants to carpool out of Houston, lemme know? o_o Thaaanks.

Here is a journal

Sat Jul 30, 2011, 9:55 PM
Because everyone is at Otakon except me!

First off, here is my Anime Overload report that I totally never linked here.

Second off, there's a Camp NaNoWriMo now, and I'm giving it a shot -- you?

Third off, look at all the pretty things I've commissioned from other people recently (okay, some are more recent than others, derp)! They are pretty awesome.

Commission: Jackie by Mukki Commission: Qhurai by Mukki 'Zacchi' by AfuChan :The Spirits of the Dead: by Miyukitty Commission - Zacchi by charlottevevers Commission - Niru by charlottevevers

Fourth... I dunno. I haven't drawn much lately. :c I guess I should get on that. What are you guys up to? (Partying hard at Otakon, no doubt.)

The Really Long A-kon Report

Tue Jun 21, 2011, 8:30 PM
Is this a new word count record?

The A-kon report is HERE. It is really, really long for no reason (seriously, this is 6,800+ words), but I have lots of pictures to make up for it, as usual?

Also, I am rewatching all the Harry Potter movies ahead of the eighth movie's release. Naturally, this is another excuse to write disorganized essays about my goddamn Opinions (~1500 words). There will be more such entries in the coming month as I go through each movie. I won't mention them here again though, probably. <_<

Anime Overload is July 8-10 in Austinnnn and will most likely be my last convention of the year until IKKiCON in the same city over New Years. Yes, I will skipping out on Delta H Con, Kamikazecon, San Japan, AnimeFest, and Oni-Con. Sorry!

Quick A-kon Shout-outs

Thu Jun 16, 2011, 9:00 PM
All of you are awesome!

I will write my usual tl;dr con report full of pictures and stuff eventually, but right now I am being bombard with work stuff, so it may be a week or even two before I get to write about the craziness that was this past weekend. ;____;

HOWEVER, I did want to send some quick shout-outs to:

My hotelmates, who were tidy and sweet and all-around awesome:
:iconsilvernomiko: :iconmissypena: :iconchrislea: :iconmeomeoow: :iconxanseviera: and :iconladre: even though he got sick and couldn't make it! (Hope you're feeling better!)

My carpool party, who put up with my obnoxious singing for a total of nine hours roundtrip from Houston to Dallas, lol:
:iconwarhound-cmp: :iconzyephens-insanity:

My lovely neighbors
:iconradiuszero: :iconslimu: :iconfenryk: and Pawstar.

:iconiceandsnow: who traded Archen prints with me even though I am not woooorthy. o___o :heart:

And everyone who stopped by to say hello and look at my messy table full of messiness~~! You guys sure kept me busy all weekend, ahahaha. <3 Hope you all had as good a time as I did.

REAL CON REPORT COMING SOME DAY EVENTUALLY. Next show is Anime Overload in Austin, July 8-10.


Wed Jun 8, 2011, 9:55 AM

Ahahahaha, did I ever mention this here? I can never remember. But hey, A-kon is this weekend and I will be there! I'll be in the upstairs Artist Alley (near/outside the Dealer's Room)? There's no official map out yet, but there's only two islands of tables, so it shouldn't be that hard to find me even if the islands are pretty big. O: Just look for the big FAKE LEMONADE STAND banner as usual. :3 See here for a list of other dA artists that will be there!

After A-kon, I have Anime Overload in Austin, July 8-10, and I think that might be it until IKKiCON over New Years... most of the cons in between July and December are just too disorganized/slow at getting info up (except San Japan, but I missed the sign-ups for that one), and I think a break would be good for me anyway. We'll see.

I have a giant list of things to do and no time to do anything in between everything else, though I guess a lot of this is my own fault. The summer heat isn't helping. I will blame seasonal affective disorder. Most people have it through the winter? HA. This consistent 100 F weather is killing me. In May we had a whole half inch of rain the entire month and all of it happened during a 20-minute thunderstorm one afternoon. We had another 20-minute thunderstorm Monday, so I guess that's it for this month.


By the way, Comicpalooza was two weeks ago and my rather lengthy con report is here if you're interested.

AggieCon report, etc

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 4, 2011, 5:21 PM

An excellent contrast to Anime Matsuri

I finished my AggieCon report and it is HERE. It's ~3800 words long, but the short version is basically that it was awesome. My first sci-fi/fantasy convention was lovely, and I would love to go back. C:

Thanks, WiCaMa / Lucubro-Insomnis for being an awesome neighbor, entertaining me all weekend, and sharing food! And thank you, Dr-Kara for letting me sleep on your couch! :heart:

My next convention is Comicpalooza in late May. I had been planning on re-opening commissions in the meantime, but I changed my mind. I haven't had a chance to just do whatever for a while. This doesn't usually bother me, but work-work has been frustrating in that on-again, off-again way, and I don't really feel like committing to extra assignments for other people right now. I'm not sure when I'll be open again --  probably not until July at the earliest, but I might do a few small, 'Souls-only commissions here and there.

I have a few comic ideas in vague, nebulous stages, and I have a bunch of similarly vague ideas that I want to paint. I do want to have a new comic ready for Comicpalooza, but I'm not sure how hard I'm gonna try for that. WE SHALL SEE.

Man, where is this year going? While we're at it, where did last year go? I swear my brain is stuck in January 2010.

Oh yeah, I finally made a non-personal Facebook page for myself, so feel free to add me there! :3 The order of my online presences from most-updated to least-updated will be as follows: Twitter, deviantART, Livejournal, Facebook, and website. Yup.

Anime Matsuri report

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 22, 2011, 9:06 PM

Drama con indeed

My very long-winded con report for Anime Matsuri is HERE. It is very tl;dr at 6400+ words, but I felt it necessary to report on a lot of issues and drama in addition to my normal recounting of events.

The short version is that I had a good time, but this was in spite of everything that the convention and hotel threw at me, and I do feel that I was very, very luck to have had a relatively okay experience overall. I feel like I'm in the minority, especially amongst artists. There were a lot of problems, most of which stemmed from poor planning and the absurd unprofessionalism on the part of the hotel staff. I'm disappointed that Anime Matsuri for many of the decisions made.

Things absolutely must be better for next year. Honestly, even this year, I would have much preferred to attend either FWA or Nashi-Con, both of which were this past weekend as well. AM was just far too convenient, being local. I don't know if I'll still be here next year, but having family in town will make AM relatively easy to attend as long as they stay in the city. I dunno. It's much harder now to plan for conventions a year in advance like I used to.

Shout-outs to my once-again awesome neighbors, :iconstar-hoshi-hoshi:, especially :iconinnocentxguilt:, and all my other awesome Texas con buddies, :iconwarhound-cmp: :iconmossi-mo: :iconcinnamoron: :iconjohnyume: :iconsilvernomiko: :iconladre: Some of you I spoke to more than others, but you were all awesome~. :heart: Hope to see lots of you guys at A-kon!

This upcoming weekend is AggieCon in College Station, then I get a two-month break until Comicpalooza in late May and A-kon a few weeks after that. Right now, I'm also down for Anime Overload in July, but I may be going to China with the family, in which case, I'd be canceling. WE SHALL SEE.

Anyway, how was everyone else's weekend? Did you go to Matsuri? FWA? Nashi-Con? C2E2? It was one hell of a nerdy weekend all around, man.

STAPLE!, Anime Matsuri, more cons, etc.

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 13, 2011, 8:45 PM

Spring foward! 8|

My con report for STAPLE! is HERE.

The Pokemon Mall Tour in Dallas this weekend was pretty awesome, yes. If you saw someone with an Ivysaur hat on, that was me, even though I only wore it for about an hour and half overall because it was so damn hot. The rest of the time I was wearing a kamikaze bandana. If you weren't there, you can still totally pokewalker/battle/trade with me at...

Anime Matsuri this coming weekend! Aaaaaaaaaaa. Kind of anxious about it because parking information is all over the place and they still haven't told us when AA set-up is and whether tables will be first come, first serve, or assigned, or what. Never been to Matsuri before and have tons of mixed reviews, so that isn't helping either.

I noticed that Delta H Con has their dates and stuff up for this year... it's now the first weekend of July, which means classes won't be in session at UH again. Really iffy about going because even though I had a good time overall last year, attendance was really pathetic. I don't think I have much reason to believe it'll be different this year, considering last year was their THIRD year and it was so terribly haphazard. It's also the weekend right before Anime Overload and two weeks after A-kon...

Which, I don't think I mentioned, but I managed to snag a table for A-kon despite all of them selling out in under a minute! x___x Yaaay. A-kon is the biggest con I'll have been to. Anxious about it? Yes.

But yeah, who all is going to Matsuri? As an artist? As an attendee?

lol MARCH!

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 19, 2011, 11:07 PM

Con, Pokemon, Con, Con

Don't think I mentioned here that I had to skip Ushicon because the roads were iced. I was pretty annoyed/bummed about it. ...So to make up for missing out on my only February convention... I'm doing three conventions in March. 8| Plus the Pokemon Mall Tour. Because I'm a dork.

March 5-6: Staple! (Austin, TX)

March 12: Pokemon Mall Tour (Dallas, TX)

March 18-20: Anime Matsuri (Houston, TX)

March 25-27: AggieCon (College Station, TX)

I had originally missed registering for Staple! because I was indecisive about it. But bigbigtruck was looking for someone to split her table with... *3* How could I not jump all over that? I am super grateful. And also kind of scared. Because Staple! will be my first (super freakin' indie) comic con. And because I need to not be an awkward spazz all weekend sharing a table with the artist who draws the Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal.

Will be driving up to Dallas with Leoncillo for Pokeymanz. The date(s) for Dallas is actually after the Black and White release, so I guess it is slightly less exciting that way, but whatever. This means I'll already have gotten started on the game and will possibly get to beat up little ten-year olds with my Smugleaf and company, right? :3 (What is it with me and crushing little kids lately.)

Anime Matsuri has been set for a while. Not sure what to expect for this, but not particularly looking forward to tabling in a hallway again. I've been pretty spoiled with cons that put Artist Alley in an actual room. :c

AggieCon got finalized a week or two ago. I'll be bumming with some SCAD kids, Dr-Kara and her sister (lol wut's your dA?!), who are also attending. It will be my first general sci-fi/fantasy con. Not sure what to expect here either. Must remember not to mention that I went to UT for a year. ;>

And then in April I've got nothin'. At this point, I'll probably not be wandering up to Seattle for SakuraCon (even as an attendee), so I guess I'll draw another comic in April or something. Or sleep, I guess. I dunno.

Clearing Shelf Space

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 4, 2011, 9:58 PM

I don't want them; do you?

I'm still trying to get rid of as much excess stuff as I can, and I really, aside from the boring things like clothes and (way too many) messenger bags, the only things I own are 1) toys, 2) art supplies, and 3) art. The last post was mostly selling toys. I think I sold most of my excess art supplies before I moved out of Savannah, but I haven't really gone digging through that yet. I am running out of shelf space though, so I think it would be fantastic if I could get rid of some of my old art... including tons and tons of inked lineart for commissions that the commissioner didn't want mailed to them, the original lineart for various illustrations, the original inked pages for a bunch of comics, and other junk.

For starters, I have like... 90 of 100 of the 100 free sketches I did two summers ago. If no one wants to buy all of them, I am going to throw them away. Seriously. This stack of sketches is almost an inch thick and I don't want them. If you do, make an offer. Honestly, I would take anything over the cost of shipping.

I am up for selling any of the individual pages from The Z Train, the wolves are here, Tchaikovsky VS Kyerina, Untitled Weird Stuff, and City Dogs. Do note that for some comics, like the Z Train, a lot of corrections were made digitally after scanning, and I also do fill most of my blacks in digitally. Feel free to ask about what the original page looks like. I would also be up for selling the original pages of Where the Wild Things Are, but only if you buy all of the pages together. Everything is make an offer.

The Z Train - cover by Kiriska City Dogs - 1 by Kiriska 24hr Comic Day 2008 - WTWTA by Kiriska

Paintings and marker drawings for sale include the following. I do have prices in mind for most of these, but I'll consider all reasonable offers.

Support Darigan, Vote Darigan by Kiriska Zorua and Zoroark by Kiriska Savannah Lady by Kiriska the wolves are here - Triptych by Kiriska

And I have the original lineart for:

Some Kind of Tea Party by Kiriska Ushiko Spring by Kiriska

Annnd the original lineart for all of these old commissions, plus tons not shown? If it was a character sheet, I probably have the original. Avatar commissions are all digital and have no originals. Commissioners -- if you want these originals, they're yours for the cost of shipping. Everyone else, make an offer.

Commission - Bangle Ref by Kiriska

I also have this oldass painting, lol. Acrylic on 9x12 canvas board. Anyone want it? XD

Comment or note me all offers.

Please Buy My Stuff o_o

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 21, 2011, 4:37 PM

I am selling things I own.

In anticipation of moving at some point this year, I have excavated my closet and am getting rid of a considerable amount of things I own. A lot of it just going straight to the trash or Goodwill, but a few things I figured I'd list online first.

Please see GENERAL SALES here, including plush, manga, doujinshi, CDs, and other random things!

Please see POKEMON-RELATED SALES here, including auctions for most of the rare Eeveelution canvas plush.

Other than that, I'm working on an 8-page comic that will be done by January 31st. I'll be at Ushicon in Round Rock, TX, over February 4-6, and I'll post the entirety of the comic online after that. Look forward to it! :3

IKKiCON Report and 2011 Con Schedule

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 4, 2011, 9:22 PM

This entry is about conventions.

Hey~. Happy New Year, guys. Got back from Austin and IKKiCON. The full report is HERE.

Shout outs to my awesome table neighbors for the weekend for being rather awesome. I hope to see all of you at future conventions!

:iconladre: :iconyanimator: :iconwhiteoblivion: :iconjohnyume:

My confirmed con schedule thus far for this year includes:

:bulletgreen: Ushicon (February 4-6: Round Rock, TX)

:bulletgreen: Anime Matsuri (March 18-20: Houston, TX)

:bulletgreen: Comicpalooza (May 27-29: Houston, TX)

In case you didn't already know, this list has been on my main dA profile for ages and is always up-to-date.

Everything past May is kind of iffy. I'm not too keen on A-kon since Dallas is more out of the way than other Texas cities. I haven't looked into whether tables have already gone on sale or not either. San Japan is apparently already sold out. If last year is anything to judge by, Anime Overload, AFEST, Delta H Con, and Oni-Con will all be slow as balls getting their exhibitor information online, so I'm not going to even think about them until probably May. :

I am sad to say that I won't be making it to any of the cons in my old southeastern US circuit, so no MomoCon, no FWA, no Nashi-Con, and no Kami-Con. Unfortunately, all of these are too out of the way and costly for me to deal with right now... I do want to go back to them at some point in the future, but it isn't going to be right now. Instead, I had briefly considered doing SakuraCon as an out-of-state thing, but indecision got the best of me around when the tables went on sale, so I missed that. I am still kind of throwing around the idea of going anyway as an attendee, mostly as an excuse to get up and visit Miyukitty and Seattle for the first time, but I really don't know.

What are the rest of you up to as far as conventions? As far as life?

The Z Train

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 1, 2010, 9:48 PM

Oh hay, I draw comics.

Oh hi, I'm not dead! I've been busy okay. :c

So this year, I ended up skipping out on 24hr Comics Day. To make up for it, I promised Twitter that I would finish a 24-page comic by the end of October (otherwise I'd owe my followers a sketch by the end of November**). So it's not really a 24-hour comic since I had all month, but you get the same product, I guess. Except it would, theoretically, be of better quality since you know, I had all month. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. THREE WEEKS INTO OCTOBER, I kind of sort of have some thumbnails of an idea. Kind of. So yeah, despite giving myself the month, I ended up drawing the whole thing in a week basically. While working fulltime.

The Z Train - cover by Kiriska

I'm not super pleased with the results to be honest, but I guess doing something lackluster is still better than doing nothing at all. One of these days, I'll be able to finish a comic without imposing ridiculously stupid deadlines on myself, but that day is not today.

I finished the comic in inks just short of midnight last night, but then I decided to add tones too, so I'm still doing those. So does that count as having finished? I dunno. I guess I'll draw you a sketch if you really, really want, but if it isn't done by November, too bad, because I have put off my starting NaNoWriMo to ensure this comic gets toned.

And speaking of NaNoWriMo, I have no idea what I'm writing. I am thinking of giving fantasy a shot as a genre, but beyond that, no idea. I should probably get on that, huh? Anyway yeah. I'll be posting one page of The Z Train a day until it's done. That will give you something to look at while I write furiously and stuff. Commissions will be open again in December.

** I occasionally promise to do things by a certain time on Twitter. If I don't follow through, I owe a sketch to whoever calls me out on it. Incentive to follow me and endure the other 95% of the annoying tweets that aren't promises? Yes. :P

Late Con Reports and Other Stuff

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 31, 2010, 12:34 AM


My con reports for Anime Overload and Delta H Con are HERE and HERE respectively. I had the AO one written in the week after the con, but wasn't able to get to the DHC one until today because some crazy shenanigans hit a day and a half after the con and took over my schedule for two insane weeks.

During those two weeks, I closed commissions. I have a small queue I need to start working back through now that most of the insanity has passed, but I'm not sure when I'll be opening them again since my schedule's still a little up in the air right now. At the very latest though, I hope to be able to do some holiday deals and stuff once November and December roll around.

I feel like these last few months have been kind of blah as far as art goes. I haven't been drawing as much. There is a lot and not enough going on at the same time, and I am having a hard time focusing. I don't know what to expect for the rest of this year, so things will probably continue being a little slow and random for the time being. I might upload some design stuff to keep things from stagnating too much, but I dunno.

Here, Have Some Updates!

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 19, 2010, 10:04 PM


My shipment of Rainbows and Rainclouds arrived over the weekend and I packed everything up today. The books will be in the mail either tomorrow or Wednesday. :3 Let me know when you get them!

I finally, FINALLY received confirmation for my table at Delta H Con, so that's a done deal. If you're in Houston over August 13-15, come by the University of Houston for a good timeee~. C: Liabra should also be hanging out with me for that weekend, so even better.

Still waiting on a confirmation from Anime Overload, which is the weekend before in Austin. Hopefully they'll get back to me soon because I may just not go if they don't tell me one way or another by August. I mean, come on. : Same goes for AnimeFEST in Dallas in September, though I'm about 70% sure that I won't be going to that one.

In other news, I will have art displayed at the Howl Gallery in Fort Myers, Florida, for the Sugar Ninjas exhibition opening August 6th, so if you're in that area, go check it out! I won't be there unfortunately, so I hope other people take awesome pictures so I can see some of the other work that's being included in the show. :3

Annnnd, here is a self-serving survey thing. What.

  1. I like when you draw ____.
  2. I wish you drew more ____.
  3. I wish you did more fanart of these series/characters:
  4. I wish you did more original art of these characters:
  5. I love how you draw ____.
  6. If you were to draw a comic about ___ I would be so happy!
  7. If I could get you to draw anything, it would be ____.
  8. My favorite part of your work is ____.
  9. When I think of your art I think of ____.
  10. If I had to describe your work I'd say ___.

TWO DAYS left to preorder!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 9, 2010, 11:17 PM

Do it now!

Preorders for Rainbows and Rainclouds close this Sunday, July 11th. Please get your orders in as soon as possible! I can't delay ordering them since I'll need the first shipment in at least before I head to Delta H Con and Anime Overload in August and maaaaaybe Anime FEST in September.

Preorder today!

Technically, I haven't received confirmations for either DHC or AO though I mailed in registration forms and payment weeks ago. I'm pretty frustrated with the incredible lack of communication with these cons and the lack of information on their websites. I've never dealt with such sloppy management. Even the tiny college cons I've gone to -- like Nashi-Con and Kami-Con -- were much better handled than these, though DHC is technically a small college con I suppose. AFEST is similarly lacking and it's the one I'm the least confident about at the moment. I've decided not to pursue Oni-Con at all because after three months of hounding them via email and Twitter, I got the response that their AA is very lacking.

Still, right now, I'm going to assume that I'll be at Delta H Con and Anime Overload. They're in Houston and Austin respectively, so if you're in the area, plan to check them out! :3 Hopefully they'll be fun, even with these snafus. I'll definitely post again whenever I get confirmation either way.

PREORDER Rainbow and Rainclouds

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 28, 2010, 3:51 PM


Yes, finally, after a crazy month of raging at printers and fussing over quality, Rainbows and Rainclouds is finally ready for preorder. Click the adorable baby griffin for more information.

Preorder today!

By the way, thanks for all the feedback on the price VS quality issue. In the end I went ahead and opted for quality because the pages and colors on the cheaper version were seriously driving me nuts. So I hope you guys won't mind spending a few extra bucks for much more accurate colors, much sturdier pages, and just a nicer job in general. :heart:

Also, sorry for the lack of activity around here. I swear I've been working on things -- I'm just out a scanner right now. My new one should be arriving any second now though! Then I will have stuff to share! x3

This Summer

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 2, 2010, 10:47 PM

Is the beginning of the rest of forever

Heeeeey, so I graduated SCAD summa cum laude with a 3.96 GPA. Now let's see where that gets me.

I've reopoened my COMMISSIONS so I can hopefully have some income while I work on a slew projects, both for myself and for others. One of the first things on the list is a number of portfolio websites from former classmates and friends. I'll be setting up a specific page with info on commissioning websites from me eventually, but I'd like to get through my current queue so I have some more examples handy. In the meantime though, if you'd like a personal website -- especially a portfolio website -- feel free to contact me about it.

Also at the top of the list are the minor corrections I still need to make to Rainbows and Rainclouds. Was also thinking of doing a few more bonus illustrations since I have more time now... As soon as I'm done with that, I'll do preorders. I'd really like to be able to get books into people's hands by early July, so we'll see how that goes.

I'm going to be working on a comic project to pitch to Scholastic. It's an adaptation of a Scholastic property rather than an original project, so I probably won't post anything related to it for the whole. I'm only going to be doing character designs and about five pages of sequential work for the pitch. If it works out, whether I post anything will depend on the editor. If it doesn't work out, I'll share everything then. (If you know me at all, it shouldn't be hard to guess which Scholastic property I'm working on. But don't guess because I won't answer!)

I'm also going to ink the cover for and properly tone my Black Cat comic from March and pitch that somewhere else. I would like to draw the rest of the strips I have scripted for Grains of Salt in Tokyo, but this is a pretty low priority right now.

Outside of comics work... I HAVE SO MUCH PAINTING I WANT TO DO. I want to do more paintings in the vein of what I was doing last summer, so you can probably expect some weird animal skeletons in your inbox sometime soon. I also want to do a series of ACEOs themed around something. Or maybe multiple series of ACEOs because I have a lot of themes I wouldn't mind doing, lol.

I'm still working out whether I'll be able to attend AnimeOverload, Delta H Con, AnimeFEST, Oni-con, Austin Comic Con, or Ikkicon. I'll post about it as soon as I figure it out, but right now, Delta H is looking pretty likely. AO, ACC, AFEST, and Ikki depend on if I can get rides and general costs worked out, though if I attend ACC at all, I probably won't be tabling. Oni depends on if they can get their shit together because it's June already and they have absolutely zero information up on their website and I've been harassing them on Twitter for the last three months.

Annnd... I think that's it for now. I haven't been uploading much aside from school work these last couple of months, but that's obviously gonna change, 'cause I'm out of school forever~.
