Hello all,

It's been awhile since I've posted a journal entry but I have been looking forward to sharing some thoughts.  

MangaNext: manganext.org/

Starting this weekend and through next week I will be getting ready for and attending MangaNext.  I am going to be conversing with my publishing prospect this weekend, and I should be able to talk a bit more about future plans for Off*beat 3 in my panel.  I will also have a few new Off*beat 3 promotional arts and things for sale.  I'll be hosting two panels, one about Off*beat, my projects, process, career, and life in general.  I'm a pretty open person, even though I'm a bit quiet, so I hope people ask me questions and I'm not just going off on some tangent about my love affair with chocolate chip pancakes.  To further bribe people into coming, I'll be giving away an original marker piece that I will be coloring during my panel, as well as a few other goodies.  My other panel will be about creating story bibles for comic ideas.  I'll be using my Off*beat bible that I submitted to TP as well as Witch's Quarry.  Both contain SPOILERS but have also gone through some changes since, so I will neither confirm or deny what stays in the final version.  I'll be giving away some small free stuffs there as well!

I will be updating Deviantart when I come back, and I'll be posting a follow up on how the con was as well as sharing the new promo stuff that people who couldn't attend Manganext missed out on.  I won't be back until Monday night, so depending on my work schedule, this update might not happen until later in that last week of February.  I don't travel much and I might be overwhelmed with stepping outside and socializing for an entire weekend.  I will get super stressed; it's my inner sheep!

I hope you have enjoyed the first 10 pages of Witch's Quarry wulfmune.deviantart.com/art/Wi… .  I plan on picking it up again when I return.  Again, due to the convention, updates on this will stop for probably the next week and a half to two weeks.  I don't have my work schedule for that last week in February so  a lot will depend on that.  I will try to keep this journal informed on when I am going on and coming back from internet hiatus.  I apologize for the internet absence but on top of my job, preparing for the convention will take the rest of my spare time that I would normal plug into this site.  

I have been listening to a lot of inspirational music while plugging away at my pages.  It might be a given to some people, but I actually rarely listen to music outside the radio at work and in the car.  It has really only been during this most recent project that I've been finding it critical to stay disciplined to drawing.  I don't know where my taste in music actually stands, but I'm always open to new suggestions.

Blackmore's Night (folkrock with a renascence faire sound) www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtJGxD…
Leaves Eyes (gothic symphonic metal about vikings)  www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ6He-…
The Birthday Massacre (synth, industrial electronica) www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxPdsl…
  • Listening to: leaves eyes, blackmore's night
  • Reading: hahaha
  • Watching: my computer burn into my retinas
  • Playing: nothing this week
  • Eating: chocolate chip pancakes (again)
  • Drinking: instant coffee (as always!)

Aw geeez, last night kind of was all over the place HaHAa I apologize for any weird stuff I might have done or said. It was great to hang out with you at the party, I'm usually so out of place and hidden somewhere at those things xD. Thanks for everything! I feel very embarrassed about the things I ended up giving you ><; if you feel like you'd like to critique my work after it burns your eyes feel free to <3 I am willing to improve. Again, nice meeting you, sorry if I looked like a train wreck this morning too hahahahha I was a zombie when you saw me;;; I hope your ride flight home went alright <3

Awe you don't need to apologize! I wouldn't have stayed at the party for so long if you hadn't hung out with me. I'm really glad you made me feel really relaxed and comfy! Like your artwork you are too cute! I want to adopt you and take you home in my suitcase XD hope you give yourself plenty of rest the next couple days to recover!

Oh maaaaaan! That sounds awesome. I've always been interested in MangaNext too... If I'd have known sooner you'd be going (and doing so much!) there I'd have totally tried to plan a visit! Now is probably not the time for sudden cross-country trips though. ^_^; I don't suppose there's a chance there'd be a video and/or sound recording of the panels? ...Or that you will be at Anime Boston? ^^ (Would you need an invite? Would they just...invite you if I harass them enough? XD)

I hope you have fun, though! I look forward to hearing how it goes!

getting invited would means i'd be there 100% XD i dunno what the chances of getting invited are though.
otherwise my finances right now are limiting. i might still consider it in the future though. i definitely want to do some cons in 2013.
i'll be sure to have a nice long post about things when i get back :D

Ugh, it sounds like such a good time. And all the promotional things and goodies for sale? Stick a knife in my heart, why don't you? Life is cruel.

Also, what are story bibles?

i'll be sure to share the O*B stuff when i get back :) no worries.

and the story bible is a series proposal; a sales pitch for comics. it's a breakdown of the general plot, selling points, characters, series outline, chapter summaries and sample pages.

About time Off*beat comes back! I'm still stuck rereading one and two, and I'm still not tired of it. I wish I could go to MangaNext, but I live way too far from it --sigh. Well, wish you the best 8 )

So I've heard. That's why I self-publish lol (it costs me more because I print in color, but the majority is b&w...then there's the type of paper I use~)... and you're welcome 8 )
