Still alive, even if I haven't be around much. I'm working on lots of stuff though!
I've got a good job at my college right now, though the pay is pretty horrid so I'll probably be pushing my commissions a bit more over the summer. I'm always open if anyone is interested! I'll have a journal up with more specific info sometime in the next couple weeks, but if you're interested now please feel free to note me. The nice thing about the job though is that I'm working the front desk which means I've got lots of time to draw and work on my own stuff while at work which is great because I've got a lot of projects going right now including querying my most recently finished novel to agents, a new novel project, and a comic project.
The novel I just finished, Twisted Veins, is actually something I'm considering self publishing though. There's various reasons behind the decision, but if I do self publish I'm probably not going to try super hard to market it. I'll put it up and spread it around a bit and if people want to read it they can read it. The reason being that, while I love the story, I just don't have the interest in it required to market it and work with it. My new stuff is a lot stronger for various reasons to, which is a big part of it. I do still love TV though, so I do want to do SOMETHING with it. Just haven't settled on what yet. We shall see!
As for the new novel project it is something I am SUPER excited about. I'm currently referring to the project as "Masqued" though that's just so I have something to call it aside from "My new novel project"
. So far I've got 8 (possibly 9) books planned in the collection, though it wouldn't be all one series. Currently there's one series and several individual books planned and I'm working on the first book for the series right now. I'm currently referring to the series as "The Violet Veil" but the individual books in it don't have any tentative names yet. The reason I'm prattling on about all this is because I've planned to approach the novel sort of like a movie instead of my usual way of developing novels. By that I mean I'm doing a ton of concept art, timelines, maps, species profiles, etc. and a lot of that art is going to get posted to dA and I want you guys to know what's up! Things are still in the very early stages for this project so I don't want to say to much because a lot is still changing, but it is based in around the 2300s and takes place in London, a few places along the US East Coast, the Rocky Mountains, and Canada. Fashion plays an important role for the main character, so there's a lot of outfit designs I'll be uploading. There's a lot of scenery concepts I'm working on as well, so you guys will see those.
And the comic project! I mentioned this one a little while ago when I asked for help with the title, but all I mentioned was the title. The comic is titled "Relicta Potentia" and is a Supernatural fan-comic following Krissy Chambers, Josephine, and Claire Novak after the fall of the angels. It's going to be a motionbook comic which will probably drive me to insanity for at least the first few chunks, but I'll shall persevere! I'm very excited about it. It's probably going to be at least a few weeks before I get anything other than the cover up though.
So, the sort version of all of this is that I'm working on a ton of stuff so expect an upsurge in posting from me over the summer! Oh! And I'll be at Denver Comic-Con this year. Just walking around though. I'll put up another journal about that later.
Now, how are you guys? What have you all been up to? What projects are you working on? How's life?
