I haven't posted here in so long. D:

I finished the pencils for 2nd chapter of OSCP5. It is around 55 pages. First chapter is 28 but I need to add 2 more pages and throw out and redo the 10 beginning pages. Working on the third chapter about when Jirou and Oscar first meet. This book is long.


Definitely not love at first sight. LOL


Oscar makes Jirou nervous a couple of pages later though. XD;

And here I am disappearing into the shadows for the next 2 months.

Started on the pencils for the second chapter in OSCP5 featuring a younger Vivien (13) and Oscar (14). I'm having a lot of fun with this chapter because it is in a different tone from the others I've been working on. Oscar acts like a scared animal, hanging out in the forest, and hiding in the bushes. It is just really funny... but ends on a sad note.

On page 17 of the pencils for this chapter! I'm actually not sure how many pages this will take... (40?) my comics always end up being a lot longer than I expect because as I draw more the more ideas I have. I was worried about this chapter but once I started drawing I couldn't stop until my lines got too loose so I had to quit for the day.

I'm working on things for school and Arabesque at the same time. I think Friday I'll go to the library to find source material for some collages for Arabesque. I think OSCP5 will be out end of March 2011 or mid-April 2011. If I didn't have school I think I could be done by December. Damn you school for ruining my comic plans. ;A; D: Anyway, I ploughed through 17 pages during the last two days so I think I should take a break now and work on other things.

I think I need to reprint more covers and insides of OSCP4 but I am kind of reluctant because actually I sent copies away to be sold at cons so it is not like I am totally sold out yet and also I need to pay my bills first before I can reprint anything. On the other hand, since I don't have any copies on hand I can't really advertise the book right now because there would be no way to fulfill the orders. There are some people who don't care about the Risograph printing, but I am sure there are people out there who care? D:

I haven't been feeling well so I can't get any work done today. ;_; I am so tired and sick. *sob* I hope I get better soon. I couldn't do school work so I drew some things and I looked at them while I was feeling pain so I can feel better. So here I share them with you before I go to bed.

"... Morning."

GYAAA sketch dumpCollapse )

A big thank you to everyone who stopped by our table at TCAF this past weekend! I wasn't feeling well (boo to the stomach flu/food poisoning??? and having trouble eating D:) so I apologize if I was weird at all those days. Thank you to my dear tablemates for putting up with me. >_<; I didn't finally feel completely back to normal until Tuesday! ;_; It was nice to see familiar faces and meet some new people, but I didn't get a chance to really see all of the event. I missed a lot of cool comics and didn't go to any of the panels I had planned. I think if I hadn't been sick I would have enjoy TCAF a whole lot more- it certainly wasn't as magical as last year when I went (because I met so many people for the first time ever that year) but I still love the atmosphere of the event and there were still some magical moments. Would definitely like to go next year if they will let us have a table again. O_O

I'm finally back to LJ. Will try to comment more and post more from now on. Even though it is May- it feels like it should be September already. @A@ I want an ice cream sundae now with hot fudge. Like the kind they sell at Ghiradelli Square. The fudge is really hot and high quality chocolate. When it is combined with the ice cream it hardens slightly but still retains a kind of softness. The perfect texture!

This is the face Jirou would make when he sees Oscar first thing in the morning at school.

I haven't drawn in a while so everyone is looking in the same directionCollapse )

OSCP4 is done! Thankfully I got the printouts on Friday. I thought I would have had to wait until Monday but I really would've died if that were the case. Really, thank goodness! Binding has been going well but I still have so much more to do. ;_;

I will be shipping all orders out on Monday!
Then I will be disappearing for two months.
Since I won't have time to post it up later- here are some page by page notes for OSCP4. They have spoilers so it is best to read them AFTER you have gotten your book and read it. Just posting it up here since I don't want to put it up on the website.

Thank you everyone for your support! I made a lot of mistakes in this first printing that I didn't notice when I was checking the manuscript. Even though I went over the manuscript 10 times and then some there were still a lot of errors that I missed. D; Kind of like visual typos. If I ever reprint I will have to go back and fix those problems. Sorry for that. Also, I apologize for the lackluster freetalk. D: I always clam up when I have to write those! D:

Still have lots to do!

The newest issue of my original comic Open Spaces and Closed Places is finally up for preorder! OSCP #4 will release mid-February and sell for $10. This issue will be around or over 100 pages perfect bound with one colour insert!



I need to draw four to five more pages of pencils. Then I will have about 8 to 9 more pages to ink! ALMOST TO THE FINISH LINE HOORAY!!! (But there is still lots more knick knack things to do like editing and backgrounds and whatnot *sigh*).

Also, I made a formspring account. Please feel free to ask me anything. :3 Be forewarned that if I don't like the question you will get a crack answer. LOL

How is everyone's holidays going? I have so many cards that I still need to write and send out, but I have been tired and lazy. D: I am spending a lot of money on postage! I tried my hand at collage this year and made three different postcards. If you want one, just note me your address, and I'll send one to you since I have lots of extras! :D

Somehow I managed to get a table at TCAF 2010. It will be a wonderful time in Toronto next year in May! I am so excited. I applied as part of the Love Love Hill Collective with four other lovely ladies. We will have so many books on our table it will be kind of crazy. It is still a long time away but if you are in the area please come by and support the festival. It is free to attend and held at the Toronto Reference Library.

In other news, the OSCP4 cover is printing right now. XD

OSCP 4 cover printing progressCollapse )

Happy holidays everyone!
