Hello there, Old chaps. It's been a little while since my last post. Hope you've all had a exciting Halloween, cracking Bonfire Night \ Thanksgiving, a wonderful Christmas, a Happy New Years celebrations, and a Heartwarming Valentines day. Admittedly, i don't care much for all the recent Politics that populates the Newsfeed, although it's a bit of shame with some of the celebrity deaths as of late. But hey.
I've been alright, alive and kicking and all that. Ever the busy beaver. I suppose on that note I'll cut straight to the chase.
I have my first show confirmed, and that will be the London MCM Expo
in May. This is brilliant because as fate would have it, the Comic Village was fully booked last year in that venue by the time i could get to my inbox. Luck fell in my lap this time around though. In contrast to 2016 i would like to have conventions more plentiful from here on out. Whilst i can't confirm further convention attendances for the time being, the conventions i had in mind include ICE in Brighton, LFCC in Olympia, Bristol Comicon (a maybe), Leeds Thought Bubble, Scotland MCM in Glasgow, in fact as many MCM expos as i can get my hands.
Part of the reasons I can't confirm too many is because of course my commitment to getting books in print as well. Currently I'm tackling the lettering process of the final cut of Book 0 part 1, then both parts will be complete and I'll have what i call a current full set of books to take on the world with. Touchwood Part 1 will be in print for London MCM Expo. After that the next Book that will be on the cards would be Book 4 which shall conclude the saga of Jacobi and the Shogun Empire. Book 0 part 3, the final part of the Shemshu Hor Saga will follow, and will there be more Genma Visage titles? I'd like to keep hopeful.
In addition i have been working on the designs for the pending title comic Pagan Leers. I haven't got anything in concrete to mention now, but all i can say is, it's an Action Fantasy story with hot women, it's aiming for about the certificate 12a \ 15 age group, and it'll be a lot more light-hearted and upbeat compared to Genma Visage. It'll also do away with saga based stories. There will be a continuity but each book will be fully self contained stories. Saying all this though, I would like to have a set plan before starting any new comic projects in full and in particular I'd like to take a break if need be so i can work on other Professional obligations within the field.
Lately I've also added lots of new content to the galleries on my website, including my recent artworks and also sections for my Landscapes and Life drawing material to assure passer buyers of my interest in the simple things of life. Also for Nostalgia sake I've also added a gallery for other Non GV animations that i did during my University days, complete with recent insight and annotations on the matter. As you can see I've gone ahead to try and flex the appeal of the website. Whilst Genma Visage will always be the face, title, backbone and driving force of what i do, I've gone about presenting my Site to encompass my work and portfolio as a whole to catch multiple eyes if need be. Every little helps.
And that's about it! Further items you can expect on the website will be more artwork, several new Lore chapters and a more Populated character gallery where the roster will grow from 14 to about 36 characters as depicted in the series. So there you go, work work work!
Hope you all have a goodun and best wishes for your 2017 adventures.
