Is the beginning of the rest of forever
Heeeeey, so I graduated SCAD summa cum laude with a 3.96 GPA. Now let's see where that gets me.
I've reopoened my COMMISSIONS so I can hopefully have some income while I work on a slew projects, both for myself and for others. One of the first things on the list is a number of portfolio websites from former classmates and friends. I'll be setting up a specific page with info on commissioning websites from me eventually, but I'd like to get through my current queue so I have some more examples handy. In the meantime though, if you'd like a personal website -- especially a portfolio website -- feel free to contact me about it.
Also at the top of the list are the minor corrections I still need to make to Rainbows and Rainclouds. Was also thinking of doing a few more bonus illustrations since I have more time now... As soon as I'm done with that, I'll do preorders. I'd really like to be able to get books into people's hands by early July, so we'll see how that goes.
I'm going to be working on a comic project to pitch to Scholastic. It's an adaptation of a Scholastic property rather than an original project, so I probably won't post anything related to it for the whole. I'm only going to be doing character designs and about five pages of sequential work for the pitch. If it works out, whether I post anything will depend on the editor. If it doesn't work out, I'll share everything then. (If you know me at all, it shouldn't be hard to guess which Scholastic property I'm working on. But don't guess because I won't answer!)
I'm also going to ink the cover for and properly tone my Black Cat comic from March and pitch that somewhere else. I would like to draw the rest of the strips I have scripted for Grains of Salt in Tokyo, but this is a pretty low priority right now.
Outside of comics work... I HAVE SO MUCH PAINTING I WANT TO DO. I want to do more paintings in the vein of what I was doing last summer, so you can probably expect some weird animal skeletons in your inbox sometime soon. I also want to do a series of ACEOs themed around something. Or maybe multiple series of ACEOs because I have a lot of themes I wouldn't mind doing, lol.
I'm still working out whether I'll be able to attend AnimeOverload, Delta H Con, AnimeFEST, Oni-con, Austin Comic Con, or Ikkicon. I'll post about it as soon as I figure it out, but right now, Delta H is looking pretty likely. AO, ACC, AFEST, and Ikki depend on if I can get rides and general costs worked out, though if I attend ACC at all, I probably won't be tabling. Oni depends on if they can get their shit together because it's June already and they have absolutely zero information up on their website and I've been harassing them on Twitter for the last three months.
Annnd... I think that's it for now. I haven't been uploading much aside from school work these last couple of months, but that's obviously gonna change, 'cause I'm out of school forever~.
