I haven't written here in so long-
life keeps giving me lemons past couple weeks. T3T;

You can still find me at tumblr:

This is a new issue of OSCP out!
It is OSCP5.
It took an abnormally long time to finish (three years...)

is anyone still here?
hello hello?

How are you all doing?
Last week I went on a mini mini vacation to Montreal to see a friend who came up from New York. It was very fun and nice to take a relaxing couple of days in which I did not have to worry about school work and other troubles. But when I came home there are lots of things that need to be done so I'm a bit overwhelmed.

Anyway, here is another sketch dump. These days I don't have time or energy to do much besides schoolwork so I keep sketching the same topics and subjects. I hope I can work with new stories and characters soon and finish the stories which I have already started.

I originally wanted to posted something for V-day, but then my computer's graphic card crashed so I had to go out and buy a new one. O_O; I'm glad that I didn't have to replace the entire computer though because I don't know what I would do if I had to do that.

Who even checks LJ anymore. Okay, now I know there are at least two-three other people who might read this. XD;

Anyway, a sketch dump that I'm not going to post about on Tumblr. I'm too tired to section up and clean up the pages. There are "comics" drawn on letter size pages of paper, but I don't cut up the borderless panels and place them individually in choronological order like I usually do. Instead, you have the joy of trying to figure out the right order to read each event. This is how I do sketch comcis by the way. The largest thing is usually the thing I draw first. Then I look at the interaction and it inspires a little story. Recently the little stories just go in the same way all the time. I need to try harder to make something different, but for now I just draw the same stories over and over to make myself feel better.

sketch dump! these are so fun!Collapse )

I want to post on here more, but I don't have anything to share right now or for the last couple months for that matter. :-/ I'm just bogged down with finishing school and other things. Does anyone check this LJ anymore? T-T I want to post here more... maybe some sketches soon. I don't know. ORZ

I don't know when I can finish OSCP5 - I want to finish by the end of this year - it's already been too long since the last book, and the pencils are all finished - I just need to find time to ink all 140 pages, but finishing school is more important priority now.

But what I meant to say is that you can look forward to my work in:
Womanthology coming out in March and PUPA anthology coming out in May or this summer. I will give more information when I know it!

Thank you for your support all this time... m(_ _)m

hello dear Livejournal.
I just want you to know that I still love you.

I hate how I always have to choose between school or drawing. None of these activities will pay the bills. I hate that I am sitting on essentially 150 pages of pencils that I haven't been able to ink. By the time I will eventually get to it all the pencils will seem so stale to me that it will be a difficult task indeed. ;_;

Sorry I haven't been updating LJ lately. One of the problems I've been facing is that my browsers keep crashing. Also, I couldn't open LJ for a long time using Opera. Anyway, I tried using Chrome but Photobucket crashes it. Firefox randomly crashes all the time. I wonder what other browsers there are that I can try? :-( This is really frustrating.

Anyway, sketch dump...

I gave the saicoink website a total overhaul!! Please check it out!!!

I finally added a Paypal cart system to the website, and you can also now order The End Days of Our Youth online for $8 + shipping. I still take money orders, cold hard cash, and cheques through the old-fashioned order form for those of you who don't have Paypal. :D

In other news, I finally finished the pencils for the OSCP5 manuscript. It is going to be a really thick book this time. I am worried about inking this as well as binding the book. D: I wonder if I should get it professional bound this time, but I don't sell enough copies to make this a feasible option, financially...

Anyway, follow the cut for some pencils...!

OSCP5-pencil snippets!Collapse )

Also, wanted to say that TCAF was absolutely amazing and inspiring and totally overwhelming and I have photos and I will make a post about it soon when I can sit down and computate what happened. Thanks to TCAF I was inspired to run through the pencils and get it done! I also feel ready to take on new challenges and take more risks with my art and also try to go back to my roots. Anyway, I've been going in and out of a TCAF high since I came back home, and May just kind of disappeared on me. *_*

Too tired to write a proper entry, but I will be exhibiting in Toronto this weekend at the Toronto Comics Arts Festival. My table is #245 on the second floor of the Reference Library. May 7-8!

I will be selling this new collage zine:

as well as issues of OSCP!

Also I started a Tumblr, but I will still post more sketches and sketch comics here!

See you all in Toronto or later on the Internetzzzz!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't updated in a really long time. There isn't a lot of interesting things going on in my life really. I got sick recently because I got too stressed out about stuff. *_*

I finally bought a copy of Crown Royale and JAB drew this on the back:

OMG. This is the most perfect Oscar ever. This is the Oscar that dreams are made of. Many people tell me they have trouble drawing Oscar, especially his hair but JAB did such a good job. So spot-on. This is like the Oscar of my visions that I am unable to draw because I lack drawing skillz. People draw my characters even better than I do. I think I should just give up. orz

Crown Royale, BTW, is really worth a read. A lot of standout comic artists! I never got a chance to read JAB's or Wensleysdale's & K. Sheldon comics before and was really impressed with their work. The site says that the book is sold out, but there are copies without the slipcover that will be for sale at AX. If you there, please purchase a copy!

moreCollapse )

OH BTW, Fort 90 is running a fanart contest for Grasshopper games. He asked me to post about the contest where I can. Please check it out! Great prizes and you may get your work featured in his videogame zine as well. :3
