Here are the inks for the cover of volume 2! We are delivering the last of the book files tomorrow, and if all goes according to plan we'll have them in time for the holidays. Will keep you posted!
A lot of you send me e-mails asking about how to get into comics, including people who aren't illustrators or writers. Here is a great opportunity: 2012 Internships at Oni Press! Here is a quick clip:
Ugh, that puns hurts me more than it hurts you. Oof.
Yuko and I keep talking about cataloguing her mug collection and so that's just what's going on here. This is the tip of the mug iceberg. I think my favorite mug might be GIRL GIRL GIRL.
Day X of working on volume 2! By which I mean I've lost track. We're getting there! And getting back to work, see you next week!
There was a period during which Yuko was into buying colors but recently it's been all greys! It's a good look on her.
Volume 2 is coming along! It's going to be 152 pages, so bigger than the last installment. More info as it comes!
See you Thursday!
Halloween is Monday and our next update is Tuesday, so you get this early Halloween comic! That's how the candy corn crumbles (that's a joke, candy corn is made of a highly durable substance). We were in Easthampton working with/visiting pals and I guess the elevator has a light switch? So KC made our day very spooky. We stayed with Rich, who's the best host with the best cats.
Yuko got pretty sick after NYCC and she's still a little under the weather. You know that feeling when you can feel illness coming on and you're all, "Bluuuuh nooooo" and it's all "Hey what's up let's hang out" and then you're all "Get outta here no one likes you" and it's all "hey I'm staying over for a few days that's cool right?" Oh, in unrelated news George is staying with us for a few days.
We're wiped after NYCC, here are some dragons from Yuko's notebook. Back to normal on Thursday!
Thanks everyone who came by NYCC! Always nice to see you guys and girls.
Catch you Thursday!
It was mega gross, oh man.
EDIT: Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes from last week! You guys and gals are really nice and I realized I forgot to thank ya.
NYCC info will be up on Thursday! Yuko's got two signings, and we'll be in the webcomics area tabling with Frank and Becky of Tiny Kitten Teeth and next to Evan and Kel! A very thorough info post will be up on Thursday, so look for it then.
I like it when things smell nice, but I don't like going into places that sell them. It's always an intense everysmell! The clothing store, I don't even get that. Is the idea to make customers pass out from the overwhelming cologne and then place you inside some sort of retail maze? And you're trapped in there with an angry minotaur in skinny jeans? That makes sense right?
Anyway we always hold our breath and jog through the odor miasma in front of stores like that.
That's all! See you next week!
