Hi guys! Sorry for the little break, I’ve been busy prepping for the next 2 months. Good news though: I have a backlog now, and we are starting a week of 5x a week updates (and if my final plan holds this will be possibly up to 2 months at this breakneck update schedule). $5+ Patrons will be getting (text-free) art updates ahead of time, starting with the next 5 updates here. I also did a big shoptalk post on library conventions for other comic artists out there :]
People have been asking me here and there but it’s pretty much official now: the Kickstarter campaign for the complete Mare Internum book will be launching on March 15. If you’re signed up for the Shingworks general mailing list, I’ll be giving everyone there a heads up beforehand so you can jump on any limited tiers. I’ll be posting previews and such of that process (strategizing, making a video and graphics, marketing, etc) to Patreon as well! I just finished the mockups for the covers last week, so I’ve been internally screaming about that all weekend.
As usual, this book (and this comic in general) are 100% independently produced at the same (or exceeded!) high quality of the Meek Vol 1 editions. Thank you for being patient with me in general, there is a lot of detail work involved in making a stunning final product, and I want this one to be a showstopper.
Last but not least, I’ll be attending ECCC in Seattle from March 1 to March 4, at table P-13! Hope to see some of you there~
Anyways, will see you in about 24 hours with the next update!
The 2018 Hugo Award Nominations are open until 3/15! If you enjoyed my work in the previous year, I would be extremely grateful if you’d consider nominating “Mare Internum: Chapter 4” in the Best Graphic Story category (due to the voting process, only complete segments- such as a chapter- of a work are eligible for nomination. Next year the complete work will be eligible).
Thank you for putting up with my nervous forays into legitimacy, and of course for considering me~
