The rare sighted Isa  
 So, lack of posting again. I'm sorry. Lately, it feels difficult to put one word in front of the other. Which is probably why i've been preferring tumblr-slash-deviant art where I can just silently toss drawings into the internet's void. I feel like I lack things to say. Generally, things go well, but i've been just working, sleeping and drawing day in and day out. I'm attempting to finish some comics. It's going well. I'm not feeling stressed in the least. I do feel a bit like a printer though.

At least I still have time to draw some magical girls. I've been obsessing over that genre lately.



Tomorrow, I get to meet one of my heroes. Neil Gaiman is coming to Montréal to talk about his new book and I managed to get tickets. I'm really excited. I love him because he's the type of writer I want to be. One that calculates when he writes his stories, so that every detail matters and is awesome. Not to mention his love and knowledge of mythology is impressive. I'm just... really psyched for this!

I'm putting the finishing touches on the inking for the final page of Namesake's third book. It's like, woah. I can't believe I managed to draw this much. This is like... 300 and then some pages of comics. It's far from being over, but I think at this point I know i'm going to see this through. I'm proud of myself for getting this far. There was a few slip ups along the way, story and art wise (and management wise, sorry about the kickstarter being slow, you guys). But still, I think we did good. Working on a webcomic is special, because it's more then a storytelling platform. It's a freaking masters class in comicking. Working every day, interacting with artists online, you are just always learning and improving. And you are never as close to your readers as you are on the internet, and they teach you a lot when they interact with you. Oh. And shipping is fun to mess around with.

It's cool during the night now. I love this time of year where I can just open the window and be snug in the blankets and feel awesome. This is a good month, you guys. 

Because it opens with a confty bed and some Neil Gaiman. Hee.

Dude, I am so jealous that you're gonna see Neil Gaiman!

And I think it's amazing that you guys have been doing this for as long as you have at this point! And the story and the art are as amazing as ever! Way to go ladies!!

I wish I was into Tumblr as much as everyone else, but I just lack the attention span for it!

Of course I always welcome your art posts on LJ! <3

Need to re-watch Puella Magi Madoka Magica as well as Cardcaptor Sakura. I am so stoked for the new Sailor Moon anime. :D

I think it's really good for really busy people with short attention spans (like me) since it's basically a image version of twitter.

I bought the French Dvds of CCS and I had a lot of fun going thru them. DAT MOVIE.

Good luck with your book. :)

Neil Gaiman is damn cool, and that much drawing always makes you feel amazing doesn't it? :) I know when I was making my storyboard a panel a day, at the end of three months with 44 panels for my story made me feel super proud :)

May I say that your colors are getting super fantastical! ;)
