As of right now I am at page 89!! I remember last summer when I was marathoning book 3, I was able to up my page ink rate from 1 to 2 per day. These days I’ve been doing 3 pages a day and it’s a little surprising to me that there was still room for improvement. I’m not sure if it’s because I separated the sketch process or if it’s because recent pages are easy to ink or if it’s because I’ve been watching documentaries that kept me focused, but whatever it is I NEED IT TO KEEP WORKING OUT so I can finish book 4 in time :c

Finding non spoiler panels to take pictures of is so hard ):

And tiny updates to the list of signs with juby’s help (: I’m left with 2 rather uncomfortable  signs for the last 2 characters that don’t really fit them HAHA… I kind of see virgos as picky hard to work with folk, and sagittariuses as a bit too almost absent minded in the way they easily move on from things, maybe I can balance them out with sun/moons? idk

♈ – Iriel
♉ – Weirin, ♈ asc ♍  moon
♊ – Rae
♋ – Desair
♌ – Auresque, mr villain
♍ –
♎ – Meron
♏ – Blackbird, ♒ asc

♑ – Veloce, ♏ asc ♉ moon
♒ – Vocruen
♓ – Keritzel, ♎ asc ♋ moon?

Anime North and stuff

Wow ok 2 weeks later I still haven’t posted about AN LOL… ANYWAY AN  this year was really good! It makes me really happy that I wasn’t facing a downhill road after the initial hype of starting to sell books at conventions like I had feared, I’m so glad my home con is such a good one ;-; now if only it wasn’t so fucking difficult to get in every year that I feel like I’m spending an entire year worth of karma on winning the lottery orz

I made a bunch of new prints this year and they sold like hotcakes! I tried out a new printer this year so I only printed a little more than the quantity I usually sell, and THEY SOLD OUT… I felt so guilty about so confidently telling people on the first day that like psh this is my home con don’t worry I’ll never run out AND I DID IM A LIAR ): I was failing so hard on saturday too… I had so much to bring to the con since I hosted Juby and Chris and had to bring their stuff and person to the con as well, so I divided my stock AND I FUCKING FORGOT TO BRING MY BEST SELLING PRINTS TO THE CON ON SATURDAY AHAHAHAhahaha Q_______Q it’s a good thing I sold out on sunday regardless and didn’t have any leftover so it wouldn’t have made a difference regardless I guess LOL.

Here are some pix juby took for me of some new prints that I haven’t posted yet!

After the con it was back to page grind, though this year I’m making like no progress compared to the last because I actually have some sort of a life now and spending a lot of time with Kristen ♥
