Hey everyone!! It's been more than a month since my last update, and I've a lot to talk about!
- THE CARPET MERCHANT VOL I CROWDFUND IS STILL HAPPENING!! But there's officially less than a month left until the campaign is over!
If you love The Carpet Merchant and want to make this book a REAL THING, hardcover and all, please become a backer (or share the comic!). unbound.com/books/the-carpet-m…£10,000 left to raise!
DEADLINE: September 15th 2018
- The Carpet Merchant Vol I has a Goodreads page!
If you enjoy the comic, I'd really appreciate it if you could write up a review, or rate it. Letting people what you think about the comic, especially in a curated public space like Goodreads, helps to increase the comic's visibility, and get it more new readers! www.goodreads.com/book/show/39…
- Where did I disappear to for one month? I went to America! Started in LA, and ended in NYC!
I flew all the way there to attend the Eisner Award ceremony at SDCC. The Carpet Merchant didn't win! But that's ok, because I already know how much this comic meant to so many people, spiritually and emotionally, and that's no better reward for a writer (though admittedly, I'm competitive enough to WANT TO WIN).
Here are some pictures from the ceremony itself:
And here's a thread on Twitter that I used as a log for my American adventures. Lots of food, lots of sights seen! twitter.com/reimenayee/status/…
- Next steps: for now I'm just chilling. I do miss just drawing and being experimental with art, so that's what I've been doing.
There are more comics in the future - some of them exciting but I can't announce yet. I'll let you know when the announcement is out!
Anyway, thank you all so much for the support! I really do appreciate it and I regret not being able to convey it better through the online. ;o;
AGAIN, THERE'S ONLY LESS THAN A MONTH LEFT TO SUPPORT THE CARPET MERCHANT BOOK!!unbound.com/books/the-carpet-m…
