In the last post I said I would update you all on something the next day that wasn’t art-related.

Turns out I lied. Or rather, I didn’t fulfill my promise, because I didn’t update yesterday.

But I did today!

I actually updated a lot of pages here on the blog. There’s now new stuff in Sketches, Illustrations, and Commissioned Works.

(I’m still available for commissions, by the way. Patricia, I’m working on yours right now. There are four spaces left open if you’re not Patricia and are interested!)

I’ve also been working on new merch for Free Comic Book Day this Saturday. Here’s a peek at some bookmarks I finished:

Thor and Fury are coming soon.

Sometimes I notice that some comic artists will cut off figures at the shins and I say to myself, “I would never do that!” And then it turns out that I do. I bring shame on my head.

Maybe my next batch of bookmarks will be better at actually showing whole figures.

I realized the other day that I shared a sketch on my Tumblr, but I didn’t post it here yet! So here it is:

It’s my resident Goth Punk girl, Charlie, showing off some of her outfits. They may make a reappearance in Charlie & Clow, the story I’m writing with her.

Off-topic, I’ve been plugging my appearance this Saturday at the Apache Junction Public Library like crazy. And I realized that not everyone who likes my work can be able to make it to the event that day.

So here’s what I’m doing for you who can’t make it: THIS Saturday (May 3), when you buy anything at my store, you’ll get a free (yes, FREE) mini-comic that I made exclusively for Free Comic Book Day!

I’m not going to tell you what it’s about, except that readers of Validation will be very excited to get it.

I hope I got you good and hyped! Again, I’m presenting stuff and selling prints and bookmarks at the Apache Junction Public Library THIS Saturday. If you can’t make it, go online that day and buy something on my store and you’ll get a free mini-comic.

You are awesome! Thanks for reading.
