New Year, New Projects

Sat Feb 23, 2019, 12:05 AM
Been a while since I updated, so hi, guys! How has your 2019 been so far?

My kid is now a 1 year old toddler hurricane, so just when I thought I couldn't be any busier, something crazy happened. A big publisher showed interest in my work! I thought I was done with Japanese publishers and fully independent, but here I am working on two short stories for a magazine I won't name unless it all works out. You never know you will be in the magazine until you are in the magazine, as I've learned from having an editor in the past, so while I'm not celebrating, I am pretty busy. One short story is already into production and features a character some of you may remember from a previous short story, while the other story will be new for everyone. 

I am still working on FaLLEN, but I am still not done inking Chapter 14 thanks to the new workload I've gotten. I have been posting WIPs to my patreon account, though, for those of you interested, and will soon be posting thumbnails and partial scripts of the new unrelated story I'm doing for the publisher.

Like I said, this could easily lead to nothing, but I really like the editor I'm working with (much better than the guy I had ten years ago) and I'm going to go ahead and give this a go. I am all but dead on Facebook, Instagram, and even DeviantART posts have slowed these days but I do still keep up with Twitter and Patreon. I'll keep you guys posted... if nothing else, you all will be getting a new one-shot comic to enjoy, since I will post it here if the publisher decides last minute not to run it. It totally happens sometimes.

Also... I play Pokemon GO now, haha. I just started a few months ago. If you still actively play, leave me your friend code and I'll add ya :D It's the only game I CAN play since I have to leave my house to do it, and walking my dog or riding with a sleeping baby in the back seat is the only free time I have.

My name is Brooke, and I live in Japan where I draw comics for a living. I have worked as a professional manga assistant off and on but now I'm focused on my webcomic FaLLEN, which has been really rewarding. I also do a lot of freelance translating and artwork as well as publishing independently for comic shows, and I even did a quick stint as a storyboard artist for a kid's show in the US.

Check out my webcomic/webmanga FaLLEN! I work so hard on it ;_;

Not my part of Japan, so I'm fine! But sounds like it was pretty bad. A little girl was killed in the rubble :(

I just gave birth to a baby girl, so right now I'm definitely not taking on any extra projects since I've got my hands tied. Sorry ^^;;
