Conversations overheard

Tue, 08/31/2010 - 14:09 by Ananth in response to karate 101

He was really excited about chi! Just something I overheard on the subway on the way back from an excursion into the city. Public transit is good for listening in on other peoples' conversations, often whether you want to or not. But I usually want to - sometimes I get a good quote for dialogue or some insight into a group of people (like Wall St). 

I should mention that Yuko drew this comic despite being sick - thank you! There are beads of sweat in this ink!! A testament to her grit and dedication. 

Congratulations Archer and Eve!

You'll recall this one as well. I've been best friends with Archer since I was in kindergarten, so it's kind of a big deal! For me. Also, his girlfriend - ahem, excuse me - fiancée Eve is totally awesome (actually, she usually plays L4D2 with us). I am super happy for you guys!! Congratulations!

Johnny Wander Volume 1: Don't Burn The House Down has been delivered to the printer! If our luck is good it will debut at SPX in Bethesda, MD in September! We are so damn excited! 

Yuko took the time to make this one extra-gorgeous - and it's a neat way to illustrate some of her process. 

Automated phone trees are pretty annoying. Here's a handy website : Get2Human.com has a comprehensive list of phone numbers and instructions for reaching a human after dialing. Sorry I didn't think of it earlier, Yuko! It only came to me while I was writing this up. 

New roommate!

Thu, 08/19/2010 - 19:01 by Ananth in response to yuko stop that

Our new roommate is Evan Dahm, who some of you might know from his works Rice Boy, Order of Tales, and most recently Vattu. Yuko is a fan! But luckily not one of those superfans that looks over you shoulder and asks questions and ... w-wait ... Welcome to NYC, Evan!

Cintiq + Bande Dessinée

Tue, 08/17/2010 - 23:14 by Ananth in response to and what are you

We got a Cintiq, and Yuko decided to take a crack at some color work. This comic can be considered a companion to What Are You Doing

It's hell week over here! I'm doing everything I can to have the book in this week -- so close! Commence hair-pulling. 

Art post!

Thu, 08/12/2010 - 17:54 by Ananth in response to and you wouldn't believe where I found it

There was a stench coming from Yuko's office and it took her a while to find the culprit. For the readers with more delicate constitution, I won't get into the details, but: dead mouse, needed cleaning. Usually the once-in-a blue-moon mouse problem is quickly resolved by Rook's predatory nature, but circumstances brought this little guy to an early grave. 

I'm going to be in Montreal this weekend, at Otakuthon! It's an Applegeeks appearance, so I won't have any JW stuff with me, but if you want something signed or want to say hey, feel free to drop by. 

GET 'IM!!

Tue, 08/10/2010 - 17:25 by Ananth in response to battlecat

What you can't tell because Yuko draws everything mega cute is that that pigeon is so, so groady. New York pigeons, you groady!! It's a good thing we keep our windows closed, since we're on the 5th floor. Rook would probably knock the screens out. Anyway, Yuko wanted to do a study of Rook's pounce - it's begging to be made into an animated gif, is all I'm saying. Maybe I'll do that right now ... /hooky Okay okay tonight. 

I haven't had a chance to update the sidebar, but BEACH prints are available in the store, along with brand new Basilisk keychains!  

Basilisk keychains are in!

Fri, 08/06/2010 - 22:36 by Ananth in response to but bookshelves are heavy

You'll recall our bookshelf collapsing - these days our room is a shantytown of books. It was charming in its own way at first, but if I trip over one more pile of books I may build a bookshelf out of them. 

Surprise! Puppy keychains! These were one of our biggest requests over the past couple of months, so I hope you're happy. Here it is:

Comic up Friday!

Thu, 08/05/2010 - 15:24 by Ananth in response to but bookshelves are heavy

Hey guys! Just wanted to give you a heads up, comic will be up Friday. Unforeseen circumstances and all that. See you tomorrow!

(Oh, there's a surprise going up in the store tomorrow too!)

We can't help it

Tue, 08/03/2010 - 16:05 by Ananth in response to the same terrible wavelength

You'll also recall the Quesodillo. The Koalacanth is a prehistoric holdout, adapted to the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean so that it can hide its freakish visage. You really only want to hug the top half. Oh, and the new face is Lindsay, one of Conrad's new roommates! (There's a roommate shuffle going on - we'll do a follow-up comic at some point to clarify.)
