Barring any complications: Thanks to my printer being SUPER nice, I’m getting a small portion of my books sent to me before Comicpalooza in Houston, May 24-26. This is pretty last minute, I’m gonna be sitting with EK Weaver of TJ and Amal.
<:3c between this and scheduling dates for surgery I’m feelin’ so good about things turning around in my favor. Wee!
First off, I’m talking to a printer presently and barring any complications, it looks like I can have my books by late June! A little over a month longer than the amended due date but hey, I’m just relieved to be moving forward. When the deal’s finalized and money is exchanged, I’ll post a Kickstarter update — I really want my next update to have solid information and news.
Secondly, regarding commission and donation rewards: They ALL will be mailed off to people as of May 4th. I realized that I will be out of town between April 23 and May 3rd, so I won’t be able to draw Love Me Nice or Slipshine. So I shifted gears and have spent the time before I leave ONLY working on digital projects, like those two. Instead I’m taking all my markers to Portland with me and will spend that 8-10 days working on sketch cards and commissions.
Just wanted to update everyone!
Weeeee, I got permission to post 1 panel from the book that I toned/shaded! This has been without a doubt a really fun project to work on and it’s basically everything I ever wanted to do as a toner/shader/colorist. So much fun.
:3 I’m a proud marshmallow.
An incredibly fast color practice before I decide to commit colors to this comic page.
Right now, cuz I’m busy, Love Me Nice doesn’t have an update schedule. I’m still slowly working on pages but right now Love Me Nice exists as a hobby since I’ve got paying work (LMN doesn’t really bring in any income) as top priority, but I hope to get a job done and then dedicate the next few months to working up to a once-a-week or once-ever-two-weeks multiple-page update schedule. I’ve even been redesigning the site. http://www.lovemenicecomic.com/new_site/comic/
I badly wanna update it again, I haven’t forgotten about it. I just need time. Just gotta work up to it.
Aw thank you!
Due to a lot of interest and messages about whether/when I’ll do more commissions, and the money pit that is convention season, I’m temporarily accepting commissions. To keep my workload from getting too complicated, I’ve made things quite simple — right now, I’m only offering 5x7 marker illustrations for $30 (max 2 characters, add $10 for more than 2 characters).
Will be mailed to you — shipping free in the US, please add shipping for international commissions.
Commissions will be drawn by order of payment to paypal: email@example.com. Please send an email to the same address with commissions details.
I will be accepting commissions for this week (last day Sunday March 24th) or until I reach 10, whichever comes first. When finished I may open up for another round, but I may not. Depends on work load.
Feel free to ask questions.
Detail panel from that comic page. I’m pleased cuz I haven’t tried to digitally color a comic in, like, a year, and before that another year. I’m trying to learn to do it faster. I’m rusty and not too experienced at digital color but I try, gosh darn it. I am proud of this so far.
Yep. Enough people have been asking about marker commissions that I’ve decided that next week, when I have a window to do it, I’m gonna accept some commissions as a convention-season-fund buffer. They will be limited, and I gotta finish/scan two commissions on my plate currently.
This is just a heads up, since people send me messages about missing my last commission round or asking when I’ll start taking them again. More info next week.
Day two at @Staple in Austin!
Photo of my table from Staple! I’m such a goober.
