What happened to off*beat volume 3? I have vol1 and vol2 but never saw another volume again T_T this drawing is beautiful but it brings melancholy because of that.

in a nutshell tokyopop froze the project and i didn't have the rights to finish it. after they closed their U.S.branch in 2011, i was able to gain creative rights back to at least finish it, even though i still don't have rights to vol 1+2.

please see my journal entry about it as well.

Gosh, I was so happy to see that, thank you for linking. I'm so sorry to hear about the difficult times you'd been through, I can only try to imagine what that is like - as you likely know, you have a huge fan base cheering you on, so please take your time - we've waited patiently this long and will love reading volume 3 when you're ready to have it out.

This is really pretty! I don't do a lot of Holiday stuff either... But I should probably start.

Haha This was like the only thing I talked about for... Over a month...

It was begining to depress my friends.

Haha, no no no no!

It's just that no matter what they would say I'd say something like: "that reminds me of in this book Off*Beat..."

It consumed my life. Lolol :iconimhappyplz:

Not really. But one of my friends yelled at me that I talked about it/drew it too much. Then she read it and fandomed with me!

lol Tory, that's not a real suit. I know you tried, but COME ON! xDD

Mandy is very beautiful, and of course, Colin is so suave.
Lookin' gangsta fresh. :3 (Excuse mah french!)

This makes me want to ask if that picture in the back of (I think vol. 2... not sure) was them going to the school dance or something?
(Where they are sitting on that chair) Or, is it just a random drawing?

btw: [link]

was just a random drawing~

i think tory would complain if he had to button his shirt all the way to the top, let alone wear a tie and all XP

I really liked that drawing, especially Mandy's dress. And it made me go gaga for Colin.
I love his suits! :D

Tory in a tie. I can see it happening if Colin made him dress up for some kind of date, but other than that.
Naaaaw...

So much smiling! And cuteness and prettiness! Gahhhh--I'm in love with all them! :heart:

Usually I end up dressing like Colin (lol, not sure if that's necessarily a compliment), but I seriously want Mandy's dress, it's gorgeous!

Happy merry early Christmas! (And even when the series ends we'll still be talking about it, feel free to do more google searches as more people catch on to the awesomeness. :D)

I love waking up (very late in the afternoons) to find pictures like this from you. Absolutely amazing. Of course I appreciate all your pieces but I love so much to see Offbeat again after all this time. ;~; It makes me realize how much I've missed it, and you, over time. There was a journal and other pics before this but I just didn't know what to say then. XD

But yeah, I love this and love you! :la: Can't wait for there to be MOAR.

Yeah, I'm a dork. So?
