Some of you may have noticed I've been arting again. Huzzah! It feels good to be working. My kid finally goes to bed at a decent time in her own room and it leaves my evenings free to work on my projects. I've been working on FaLLEN as well but I'm so rusty it's been slow going.
I am currently in the US and will be selling and guesting at a few conventions this month. FaLLEN vol. 1 and 2 will be available as well as quite a bit of FaLLEN merchandise. I didn't update my prints catalogue for fan art unfortunately, but I think I will have quite a few new additions next time I do this. For now, here is my schedule:
Date: July 5-7
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
Hey guys. I normally prefer to respond to birthday wishes individually, but I have been super under the weather for the last week or so because what I thought was a cold ended up being bronchitis that is bordering on pneumonia. I spent the night on my birthday in the ER because at one point the doctor said it WAS pneumonia but kept flip-flopping back to bronchitis mixed with asthma (which I have not had since I was a teen). He discharged me at like 5 am the next day and said he was treating the inflammation but if it does not improve by Monday I should see a doctor because it may really be pneumonia after all. I haven't slept in days because
Almost 6 months after giving birth, life has been pretty weird. My kid is a monster (she is in the 99th percentile for height and 97th for weight, meaning she is bigger than 97-99% of all babies her age) and a fast learner, much to my dismay. Oh, sure, I'm proud of her... but at 5 months old she is able to sit, roll, crawl, and can stand for short bursts if holding on to something. I REALLY can't take my eyes off of her. So drawing time has been scarce, and there are weeks where I may only leave the house once or twice, so cabin fever has effectively set in, haha.
It looks like I will begin drawing the next chapter of FaLLEN
I had a baby! Yup. I don't want to post her picture all over the internet, so this is her hand and her pink elephant sleeve. Coincidentally, when she farts/poops she sounds just like an elephant, and it's super cute.
My labor story: Uh, easily the hardest thing I have ever put myself through. She was almost 2 weeks late and 4 days before she was born they decided to induce me. Not going to go through all the details, but I was having labor contractions for 3 days before I ever even went into labor, thanks to a torture device that injected man-made oxytocin straight into my veins. So I had maxed-out the machine and had mega contractions up un
