Poison Ivy Gulch gets its Monday update!
A NEW Poison Ivy Gulch is up!

Updates on my creative works

Updates on my creative works

Two important items today! First, it regards Poison Ivy Gulch. It is my plan to change the schedule to 3 updates a week starting in 2021; the current schedule is twice a week on Monday & Wednesday. After that, it will go to Monday, Wednesday and Friday! Speaking of which, here is today's update: The second item regards my next Kickstarter; on January 6, 2021, I will launch a Kickstarter with the goal of US$3000. My plan is to crowdfund my first picture book, Hilda & Richie. Success of this Kickstarter is crucial. I have to prove I can fund bigger amounts of money in the $2000-5000 range, I want to produce more books with the two foxes (story treatments exist for two more books with them and that's not counting the many notes I have) and most of all, this is a stepping stone for doing a Kickstarter later in 2021 for a NEW EDITION of Sunnyville Stories books! Watch for more news and get ready for 1/6/2021 when

The fine line between reality and cartoon-level abstraction is a very delicate matter, one that could do well to be more meticulously experimented with and utilized, not as interpreted or enforced by capitalism and commercialization and monopoly. Corporate manipulation, that is.

“Eventually, every long running series loses it's charm...” says a friend of mine. Not if it was intended in the first place to be long in length according to the weight of the not-so-easily-condensed-or-limited entity the story and lore represented and the endless possibilities that couldn’t be easily squeezed into just 3 or 4 seasons, as in the epics or the myths. Five works of media I hold in high esteem for such accomplishments: Cerebus the Aardvark, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Usagi Yojimbo, One Piece and Adventure Time.

thanks for the fave
Happy Birthday! Best wishes to you!
