I’m Going to RathaCon

by

Oh hey, a super short video update to let you know I’m going to RathaCon this weekend in Athens, OH.

I went to RathaCon last year and it was a lot of fun. They asked me to come back again this year, to which I said, “OF FREAKING COURSE,” and if you’re in the area, you can see me May 7th and 8th at the Athens Community Center.

Hope to see you there!

If you can’t make it, you can still pre-order the first issue of Charlie & Clow. Patrons of Validation also get a cool little bonus.

Thanks for watching and reading!

You. Are. Awesome.

So I’m making what I call a “test illustration,” an illustration made just to practice with the tools. Kind of like my Native American woman, my last illustration I made with watercolors.

First thing I did was I drew – and shaded – the whole image with graphite pencils. Continue reading →

Review Day Tuesday: My Love Story!!

by

If you’ve read “My Love Story!!” published by Shojo Beat and created by Kazune Kawahara and Aruko, leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts on it!

Right now, I’m hard at work on some new illustration series’ ideas – drawing out some rough sketches, testing color palettes, and the like. I’ll talk more about those soon. Besides that, if you want to see some bonus comics like “Julia,” you can check out my Patreon page – it’s like KickStarter, but funds itself by the month and gets you more constant perks.

Thank you for reading and watching!
