My worst trouble with being elbow deep in the otherwise most excellent concept design stage of a project is not being able to post things. Also the laze-inducing heatwaves we’ve been having did not exactly help.

January was a rush of writing and heatwaves for me. I’ve written my major project for 2014. I’m almost done with a mini comic I’ll be announcing at the start of March, and about 40% done with another mini comic that’s something a little out of the norm for me. And as some sort of bonus present from the universe, I managed to crank out a front split, which is something I had been working toward for a while. The only thing I’ve really slipped on have been my language study plans.

So this month I plan to bring many more posts full of comic and illustration preview goodness.

Also, a big THANK YOU to everyone who read Sweet NV2 (and NV 1!) and gave me feedback.

So far I’ve been told that Train Girls was unexpected, both within the comic and (for more long-term followers of my work) out of my writing style. I’m glad and very flattered that it made such an impact, and I think a lot of that impact came from the story being an important issue for me. Writing-wise, I think I’ll always love whimsy and fluff but it’s been fun writing more serious stories too. If you have something to say, please let me know! <3

Over the weekend, I completed Nathan Fowkes’ Designing with Color and Light course at Schoolism. (Mini review: it was fantastic and I would absolutely do it again – the big thing I’d do differently is save up for the full feedback version, rather than the self-taught!) This is one of the portfolio pieces I completed, working from a value study, through about fifteen different colour iterations and finally to this. One of the best parts was ploughing through the Hubble Telescope space image archive and admiring some beautiful photos of stars and galaxies.
