*Commissions are closed again.
Not because I’m getting swamped by them, but because I really need to focus most of my time on the Simpsons comic this month, and doing that plus commissions, plus working on a comic series pitch, plus making media appearances is making me a busy space coyote.
Yes, media appearances. I’m going to be on TV… Thanks to the Vancouver Sun article, all these local news people are interested in my “success story.” The local CTV came by today to interview me and film shots of me working and such. It’s going to be on the News at Six, possibly next Wednesday, on a segment that’s about locals doing interesting things. It might even be broadcast nation wide. Next week, Shaw TV and CBC want to interview me too.
I don’t even like seeing photos of myself, so I’m not sure I’ll watch these! I’m scared and frightened. You know, people didn’t even know my real name or gender before all this madness…
(The cameraman wanted a shot of me looking through my manga collection, so I specifically pulled out Houshin Engi and Eyeshield 21 to pimp those series :V)
ETA: Someone informed me that I’m in the February issue of Imagine FX. Just ordered a copy for myself because I don’t think they’re going to send me one. Shojo Beat also said they’e going to write a small article about Simpsonzu, but no idea when that’s coming out.
