DUDE, so my friend :iconseiyji: is having a LOUSY birthday AND she just moved away to a new home away from her friends so we must launch Operation Cheer Up Heather!  Please draw Heather a doodle of a fat cat in a party hat, a snake in a party hat, a yummy-looking cake or anything else you can sketch up and post it up in your DA and put the link on her front page! DO IT NOW.  And go over to her page and wish her a happy birthday and maybe take a look around her gallery and see the neat stuff she has posted!  DO IT OR I WILL PUNCH YOUR FACES AND DENY YOU SNACKS.  I WILL GO TO 7-ELEVEN AND YELL AT ALL THE DONUTS.  THE POOR, INNOCENT DONUTS.

DO YOU WANT THAT ON YOUR CONSCIENCE?

WELL DO YOU??

ANSWER ME, DAMMIT!!


Anyway. Go tell :iconseiyji: how much you love her, or I will make a sadface and it will stick that way.  If enough love is shown for Heather, I will post a pic of the MAGICAL MARTY WAND...so often referred to on this site, but never before photographed! I made it myself and it rules.

OH MY GOD U GUISE!

Kev, Paul and I just got done recording a two and a half hour commentary on book 1 of Bizenghast for the...wait for it...Bizenghast Book One DVD Commentary!

A DVD commentary for a book?  The hell, you say! But I assure you, it can be done.  I've combined my love of DVD commentaries and the first volume of my comic series into a movie-length running commentary, performed by myself and my two best friends.  We'll be talking about the series, about peanut butter and ironing boards, and about why Kev is wearing women's jogging pants, all into one AMAZING DVD, which you can purchase from Etsy very soon!  The DVD will also contain lots of bonus material that was cut from book one, interviews with editors at TOKYOPOP, and much much more!

IT'S SO EXCITING AND FRUSTRATING!  EXCITING because it's totally exciting, and FRUSTRATING because we just recorded for two and a half hours, only to find out that the track was not recorded correctly and is unusable. Also we were too drunk.  So now we'll have to do it AGAIN. RAWWR TECHNOLOGY, YOU WIN THIS ROUND!!

But I hope you're all looking forward to this astounding DVD, which will be low in price but SUPER AMAZING in content!  I hope to have it available for purchase SUPER SOON, by the middle of August.  YAY!!

Also, I'll be at San Diego Comic-Con this month (July 22nd-25th), and will most likely be on a TOKYOPOP industry panel, so I hope you'll stop by to say hi to me!!

-M!



Just got back from AnimeNext! It was awesome! I had a lot of fun meeting fans and our skit even won Best Craftsmanship in the masquerade! Yay!

Here's a pic of me at my table with a little fairy friend, made by a fan:



And here's us onstage doing the cancan! (on the left is :iconkrisrix:, in the middle is me and on the right is sassy friend Paula!)



We had SO much fun this weekend, although now I feel all beat up from running around and dancing. Phew!

For those who were interested in buying the Lady Gaga posters that I was selling at my con table:


I put a few of them up on my Etsy: www.etsy.com/listing/49931329/…;

So be sure to buy one before they run out!

Some even BETTER news: the Bizenghast website is BACK UP with a new design, yayyyyy!!: www.bizenghast.com

I'll be adding some new content soon, and in the meantime you can send your new letters to Edaniel's advice column!  A new letter is answered every Monday!!

I posted something for the good of Heathers everywhere. We have a collective mood yenno, if a sufficient amount of us are sad then the rest will become sad too, so it's best to stay as happy as possible whenever we're able. Also, I resent the abuse of donuts.

Lmao nothing like spending 2 hours on something to find out somethings wrong with it. So been there.

Actually I enjoy commentary. I'm one of those weird people who like to listen to people talk, especially when it's about stuff that I can be nosy without being nosy.. if that makes sense. :XD: It's always cool to see how projects come together and what not, so this sounds interesting!
