Okay, I am super curious about this (because it may or may not help me decide what to do in the near future, in more ways than one). Please answer truthfully!

I’ve done some fairly “complete” scrap pieces since the beginning of this year, for those who don’t follow my scraps gallery on my website:
My hands are always a bit wonky-looking in my sketches…
I begin working on Yokaiden book two today! And nope, still don’t know when book one is coming out.
I’ve been receiving some very nice e-mails lately. Among them was a link one of my friends sent me, which included this life lesson:
16. Most people are actually nice: This is something I’ve only recently realized. Most people are nice, but not usually to strangers. Once they get to know you and you get to know them, they will most likely seem like very nice people.
It’s true, and it’s good to keep in mind.
Saturnalia cosplay! Here’s some excellent Lan cosplay by envirion at Katsucon 2008 last weekend. (Remember Lan? From that webcomic I once did?) She’s also taken the costume to Anime USA 2007. Awesome work! Here’s a quick pic of Lan I drew and sent to her. I also finally got around to drawing and sending an Ellipsis pic to the girl who cosplayed her.
Some news: Nekocon (Hampton, Virginia) is interested in having me as a guest this year! That means I can pretend to be important and I’ll get to speak at panels and maybe even have a book signing. It’s in early November, which is perfect timing, too — I’ll have finished Book 2 and Book 1 will be out by then. The only issue is the costs. Virginia is… pretty far from where I live. But hey, maybe Del Rey can help out since it’ll be a business trip? We’ll see!
I got around to snazzying up the “comics” section of my site at last.
Following the Yokaiden link will take you to this teaser page. I don’t even know what I’m going to put up there yet. Maybe a short summary? Character introductions? Post the first 10 pages as a sample? I’m not sure what I’m allowed to do. But for now, look, there’s the title graphic! I did the English part, and my aunt the Japanese calligraphy teacher did the kanji in the back for me.
I updated the Saturnalia page with a proper notice explaining that the comic is dead for now. I honestly do wonder if I could redo the comic for print one day. If so, I’ll have to have improved my drawing skills a lot, and make several changes to the story itself.
I also put up this thing I made well over a year ago: See how my art in Saturnalia improved over the years.
Now to contemplate what else I should put up on that page. For someone who claims to be primarily a comic artist, I sure don’t do enough comics.
Luki made an adorable Ellipsis at Amecon in August. I give her props for bleaching the hell out of her hair to make it that light. I am going to have to draw her a picture when I’m not so busy.
Is it just me, or is this new wig at Cosworx pretty much exactly Sysreq’s hair without the ear tails (especially in that middle picture)?
