Today we reached the $100 milestone goal! So long as all the pledges are collected at the end of this month, that means that the first Monday in May, patrons will be able to see a week’s worth a comics at once in the patron-only content stream. :D Thank you all for your support!
This is the most recent behind-the-scenes art I posted yesterday, so go check it out! A buck a month gets you access to my works in progress and early access to the comic. :D
Wanted to say hi to new folks who might be coming to the comic after visiting me at SPACE and AwesomeCon! I am happy you found your way here, and thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy reading the Hues and joining us in the comments! :D
If you’re one of the people I showered with buttons during Super Art Fight OH GOD I AM SO SORRY I HOPE I DIDN’T CONCUSS ANYONE.
My next conventions are a 1-2-3 punch of Anime Central, Wiscon, and Tricon next month, which I have dubbed MIDWEST MADNESS. West Virginia is not in the midwest by most accounts, but Huntington is just on the other side of the river, so I’M COUNTING IT.
I’ve got two cons in a row coming up! This weekend I’m going to SPACE here in Columbus, and Sunday at 1pm I’ll be on a panel with my cohorts from Sketch & Kvetch, which is a group of women comics creators. :)
Next weekend, I’ll be at AwesomeCon DC! My table number is M15, and there are also a number of my friends and other cool folks I helpfully pointed out on the map as well. :D (Laughing Ogre is actually my hometown comics shop! WOOP WOOP)
I’m going to be arting as hard as I can at SUPER ART FIGHT, which is on Sunday 4/20 at 2:15. It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to join the Art Fighters on stage, so I’m HYPED.
I look forward to meeting some of you over the next couple weekends!
HEYYYYYYY, it’s time for your monthly update!
I said it over there, but thank you again to everyone who supported my Patreon for the month of March! If you’re new to the comic, this is an excellent time to point out that you can support me with a small, recurring donation via Patreon, as well as see progress shots and behind-the-scenes stuff about how the comic-sausage is made. (Some previews above!) Becoming a patron is not mandatory and the comic is always free to read, but if you’re interested in supporting my work, whatever you want to give is much appreciated. ^_^
I’ve been making all sorts of updates to Art Harder, which is my online store for all my various comic and art projects. You can now get a copy of the comic book I made for Anime Boston (above) for just five bucks! I’ll have these books for sale at conventions this spring and summer, as well. The Hues section of the store also has all the eBooks, prints, and the hexagram necklace, as well, so go check those out. :)
This month, I’m going to be at two conventions! SPACE is April 12-13th here in Columbus, Ohio, and I’ll also be at AwesomeCon in Washington DC the 18-20th. The map for AwesomeCon is forthcoming, I’m told I’ll have my table location soon, so I will let you guys know where I’m going to be! I’m taking pre-orders for sketch cards for this show, in the meantime.
I think that’s it from me for now! Hope you are all having a great day.
There are only so many commissions I can complete during a given convention weekend, so this is your chance to guarantee you get some art by me. Prices start at $5 for a sharpie doodle, all the way up to a fully-shaded colored pencil drawing for $30! Here are some examples of sketch cards I’ve drawn in the past.
If you use the coupon code AWESOME14 at checkout, you can also take advantage of free at-con pickup for everything else in the store, too! More info on con pickup here, for those interested. Sketch card pre-orders will be open for the next two weeks, closing on April 11th.
Not going to AwesomeCon? I do sketch card commissions online as well, and the info for that is on my commissions page.
I’ll be offering pre-orders like this for future cons depending on how it goes for the next few shows I’m at. Hope to see you at a con sometime!
Anime Boston is over, and it was AN ADVENTURE, let me say that. It was a little rocky getting INTO the city, since I was by myself with 100lbs of luggage on the T, but the rest of the weekend went very smoothly thanks to my roomies, Andrew and Chibi of Technoangel Studios! They were kind enough to drive me (and our other hotel roommates) to and from the con all weekend, since we were staying at a cheaper hotel outside Boston proper. :)
Thank you to the fans who stopped by! It was great to meet you guys in person! And to the folks who I shilled to over the weekend, welcome to the comic. :D I hope you enjoy reading it and joining our little fold.
Above is a panoramic of my table that I stitched together with Photoshop! HOWEVER, this is the second, much more successful attempt. Let me show you what Photoshop made of my table photos the first time around:
Oh Photoshop. You tried.
Anyways, I hope you all had a great weekend, and if you weren’t able to make it out to the con, I DO have an online store where you can get all sorts of cool stuff I made! I got some color comic books made of the first act of the comic, as well, and you can get a copy for just 5 bucks. :)
This is old news by now, since it leaked last Thursday (Happy Birthday to ME) but I can’t help myself!
WE HAVE AN ART! AND A TITLE! The official Sailor Moon website put up a countdown with a “Coming Soon…” placeholder, so some more news should be coming this Saturday while I’m at Anime Boston. In the meantime, someone leaked this artwork, which was uploaded on the server, and I am beyond excited!
I’m really happy that this image echo’s Takeuchi’s artwork from the manga, and if the whole anime managed to evoke her artwork in motion, I might just die of happiness. I LOVE the anime, obviously, but I’m very interested to see what new directions they go with Crystal.
The above image is actually part of a larger graphic that listed some of the show’s crew and the story synopsis, which was soon translated by Miss Dream:
AND BECAUSE I AM A TOTAL DWEEB:
Hi, all! Wanted to let you know that I added a new pledge reward on Patreon: a print club! For $20 a month, you’ll get an 8.5 x 11″ print of your choice from my online store. Folks outside the US will get two prints every other month to economize the shipping costs. :)
I also revised the $5 pledge level– patrons at that level can now choose ANY eBook from my offerings each month. :) I figured that would be better for both you and me, especially in the months between TH eBook releases.
Last week, I also added a $100/month milestone that will get patrons early access to comics! Any month where at least $100 of pledges are processed means that I will post a week’s worth of comics at once, every Monday, for the following month.
That’s all for now! See you in Boston!
Hey, everybody! In just a week, I’ll be at Anime Boston! My table number is R24, as marked on the map above. :D I am looking forward to meeting a few of you there!
I’ve decided to take next week off from posting! I caught a bit of a cough last week and it put me rather behind on my various arting, so in the interest of getting back on track, I’m going to take the next week to add a few pages to the buffer, so updates will resume as usual after I get back from Boston on March 24th.
Hope you all have a great weekend! See you in Boston. ;)
