Heydee Ho Everybodies!
September is always a difficult month for me, getting back to a new class and working like crazy. Throw in a really nasty cold, and it’s been an extra tough one so far. And where am I suffering? My art. I’m done page 16 of the Psychedelic Postman, but honestly, it’s been sitting on my drafting table for the last week waiting for me to start page 17. But, a few more days of malaise, and I’m sure I’ll get back to it!
But the good news is that there’s movement on the New Recruits! After struggling through some of the colouring process, I figured that I’d better get some real help on this one, so I am having the artist Bruce Lugli to continue his work on the comic by doing the colouring as well! It’s going to make the process go much faster, and I know I can trust him to meet deadlines and work hard, and I love his art, so it’s going to be fast and fantastic! This project is incredibly overdue, and I feel a fair bit of guilt over my role in making it worse, but I’m going to get this project done! Soon!
This weekend is the Edmonton Expo, and I gave up my booth. I went through my difficulties with the expo crowds, and decided that I’m better off spending my time working with markets that cater more to buying comics and magazines, rather than merchandise. I love all the stuff at the expo, but it doesn’t seem that lucrative for indie comic creators.
That said, I’ll be at the HARD COPY zine fair on October 3 and 4 at the Stanley Milner library in the Edmonton room! I’ll be selling my book Lemons on Venus, my graphic novel The Somnambulist, as well as my comics Captain Uranus, Zero Men, and of course the entire Utility Belt series! I really want this small event to take off, so if you’re reading this, come on by! I’ll give you a free bookmark if you say the codeword Otorhinolaryngologist. If you don’t give me the code word, I’ll give you a free bookmark anyway. Because they’re free.
All right! As soon as I’m over this cold entirely I’ll be full of energy again to continue writing and drawing your favourite indie comics, so wish me well!
