I’m Part of the Iron Circus Videogame Bundle

I have finished the game I was working on! Teething is a time management puzzle game. You play as a single parent of a werewolf child. You must prep your basement for the full moon to ensure your kid doesn’t get out. It is part of Iron Circus’s indie game bundle, along with 5 other games. Its crowdfund is going live June 24th. You can sign up to get notified here. 

There is a small one day convention at Books with Pictures in Portland, Oregon. It is free to attend. So if you have time on June 15th, stop by!

Also the discord full moon movie this month is gonna be Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. The past few movies have more gorier, so I wanted to do something goofy this month. 

We’ll be watching June 21st at 5pm PST. If you wanna join, can pop into my discord here. 

I’m still streaming on Twitch regularly. 

  • Tuesday 8pm-10pm PST – Art times
  • Wednesday 8pm-10pm PST – Art times
  • Thursday 6pm-9pm PST (during the Iron Circus Geekshow)
  • Sunday 8pm-11pm PST – Playing Baldur’s Gate 3

Please stop by!

I mentioned last month that I am gonna stream playing Baldur’s Gate 3. I’ve been saving the streams on my youtube. I’ve put them in a playlist.

I also did a goofy comic summary of the second stream. 

I’m going to try to keep doing these when I have time. Because I wanted to get better at quick doodles rather than going all out all the time. It will give me a little bit of a break only drawing for work rather than to goof off. 

Also last month I mentioned all I had left to move was to hang up some art I have framed. I got all that hung up and took some pictures. Here’s a look for you all!

This section is mostly commissions I got of my characters. 

The big picture is a limit Discworld print. The letters surrounding it are fan made letters from Discworld characters. A Moist Von Lipwig cosplayer would hand them out to people who recognized them.

Some random smaller ones. 

Commissions I’ve gotten of Wolf from The 10th Kingdom. They are in my kitchen. :3

Some original comic pages. They are from FinderBPRDVattuThe Wicked and the Divine, and Angel & Faith.

Bernie Wright illustrations from Cycle of the Werewolf are running above my TV. 

With Teething done, I’m glad to have one less thing off my plate. I’m gonna give my non-streaming work time to focusing on writing the next story in The City Between. It’s called Glass Diamonds. I don’t usually post scripts or writing stuff on my patreon. But would that interest people? Let me know. It’s so much easy to share art related stuff online. I never know what to share when I focus on writing. Maybe I can post a scene I like? Let me know. 

Most of what I’m watching lately is keeping up with Interview with the Vampire. Over a year ago, I mentioned back how much I liked the first season. It is keeping the good stuff. I am very curious to see where it goes, especially with Daniel and Armand. In the books the two of them end up in a toxic codependent relationship. The way Daniel is needling Armand and Louis in the interview and the flash of the past Daniel keeps seeing are really grabbing my attention. 

Also, digging up that link from a year and a half ago is making me realize how much I need to get back to consuming new media. I’ve not had much time. I’ll need to fix that now that videogame stuff is out the door. 

In the meantime, I’ve also been getting back into running. There are bunnies on my jogging route! Look at this little guy!

That’s all for this month! Take care. 

All Moved!

I have officially finished moving (except I need to hang up some more art). I got some big stuff like the pictures above, but I’m waiting for the framing place to finish up with some smaller pieces. Those will be done next week. The stuff in the photo above are the leads from Berserk as drawn by Robert Wilson in the big frames, the Iron Giant by Patric Renyolds, and the Sailor Scouts by Chira. Not in the picture is I framed and hung up prints of the illustrations from Cycle of the Werewolf and a very nice Tales of Earthsea print by Charles Vess. Basically it’s a poster of this:

The other stuff I want to make sure I have all the smaller pieces frames to they look nice together. In particular I have a big Discworld print that I don’t want to hang up until I have some smaller Discworld stuff framed too. That way the match/are symmetrical. 

I’ll be sure to post pictures in next months newsletter when they are all up.  

Last month allergies and Benadryl caused me to sleep through when my discord was supposed to watch Late Phases. So this month I’m gonna give it one more try on this movie. 

So Thursday May 23rd, join me in my discord at 4pm PST to watch Late Phases

Also, I’m currently out of town, but after the 8th I’ll be back to streaming regularly. I’ll be streaming art on Twitch. My schedule is currently the following:

Also, a new stream will be happening on Sundays at 8pm PST. I’m gonna stream playing Baldur’s Gate 3. I’m playing as a tiefling bard. I just started, so if you join me Sunday the 12th, you’ll have only missed me playing the tutorial section. And if you want to watch me play the tutorial, I posted it on my youtube.

This is my tiefling. Aren’t they pretty? u_u
They have max charisma and dexterity. But their constitution and strength are as low as possible. Breathing on them too hard will kill him. Should be fun.

Moving and allergies killing my thoughts ate up all my time. So really the first Baldur’s Gate stream is the only thing someone might have missed. 

Part of why I’m streaming Baldur’s Gate is because I still have a lot to do. But I really want to play. So if I limit it to while I’m streaming, that will stop me from playing all day every day until I beat the game. 

I still have a couple of loose ends to tie up for the videogame Teething. But I should be done with those this week. It’s just some icons. I also realized Shards of Reflections is almost done. So I’m working on scripting the next City Between story titled Glass Diamonds. It’s about Rebecca. It’s been fun getting back into the swing of writing her in all her grumbling. 

Those are gonna be the main focus this month work wise. 

Other than those I just finished watching the Fallout tv show. I liked it for the most part. It does a good job of mixing in the humor the games have in with the plot. But waiting it did make me think about how stories never seem interested in rebuilding. Basically, I remember Hbomberguy saying in his video covering Fallout: New Vegas that it was the last time the Fallout series tried to move the world forward. Like the NCR have developed enough that they had remade money, but Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 went back to using caps as currency. While the show is its own timeline, it still kinda has the thing of setting things back to square one. So Fallout is kinda stuck at same state even though it’s been 200 years. 

It’s not really the fault of the show itself, but more just an observation that we don’t get make stories willing to show something new being built. 

That’s all I got for the month. Thanks for your support everyone! Take care. Please remember to check out and back my patreon!

I’m Almost Done Moving

Did you know books are heavy? Wild, I know! I’ve successfully moved all my books to my new apartment. I just gotta get furniture moved in. In the meantime, I’ve been watching a lot of Balder’s Gate videos while packing and working. I’m probably gonna jump into playing that after I finish up some stuff on my today list. 

This month is pretty business as usual. Werewolf movie night ended up getting canceled. So if gonna give Late Phases another chance this month. 

So if you wanna join pop into to my discord. We are gonna watch it April 23rd at 5pm PST. 

As always I’ll be streaming art on Twitch. My schedule is currently the following:

Geekshow is back on track now. So join me, Spike, and Amanda as we shoot the shit. We will probably talk about the videogame Rimworld a lot because it’s about to get a bit update.

Hey my kickstarter was successful! Woohoo! If you missed it, I’ll have the books in the store in October. 

Also, I’m a member of the Cartoonist Cooperative. They are celebrating their 1 year anniversary and I was guest on one of the celebratory streams. Myself and a few other cartoonist talked about our art while drawing. And we took turns drawing each other’s characters. So I now have this fun drawing of Sina covering up a naked Jeff. 

It was fun. Also if you are a cartoonist and need help with promo and other stuff involved in self-publishing your comics, give the cartoonist cooperative a look.

This month will be about finishing the videogame I’m doing art for, Teething. 

I just have to draw a store and some ending illustrations. I got a small buffer for The City Between. So I’ll probably only draw this on stream the next few weeks. 

That and moving are gonna eat all my time. 

I also mentioned I’ve been watching a lot of Balder’s Gate 3 videos. I haven’t played yet because time and so much to do. But I’m enjoying the memes and fan comics. I was also bored and thought about if City Between played Balder’s Gate who they would romance in the game. 

  • Rebecca would romance Lae’zel thinking, I like this gal’s vibe. 
  • Marnie would romance Karlach and when asked she would say she has a type. :3
  • Jeff would romance who ever hit on him first, so probably Astarion but he’d break up with him in Act 2 in a nice way. 
  • Sina would accidentally romance Gale.
  • Maria wouldn’t romance anyone
  • Connor would think Wyll is a nerd when he first shows up but then would immedately try to romance him. 
  • Who Mina romances would depend on whoever she ate most recently. 

Anyway, I have balder’s gate 3 brain poison now. Here’s a comics someone else did about Astarion.

Thank you all for your support! Take care!

Welcome New Folks That Signed Up at Emerald City!

Firstly, everyone I have a kickstarter going on! If you want to grab a print copy of Murky Water, head on over and back it!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table at Emerald City. I hope you all had a good weekend! 

If you signed up at Emerald City here’s what I’m working on:

  • The City Between is my webcomic about werewolves in the future. It updates Wednesdays. The current story is called Shards of Reflection. The forth story in the series, Murky Water, is what’s crowdfunding right now. 
  • Blue Moon is a werewolf romance graphic novel I’m writing and Meredith McClarren is going to draw. I’m doing my best to finish the script soon. 
  • You are the Chosen One is a fantasy comic about 23 kids who got the same prophecy dream. It’s currently only readable if you back my patreon. It’s on hiatus until I finish writing Blue Moon. 

My day job is as an editor at the manga company Seven Seas and the indie comic publisher Iron Circus Comics. I like folklore, fantasy, and especially like werewolves. 

This month I’m mostly focused on my Kickstarter and banging that promo drum. 

I probably won’t have time for much else because I’m also busy moving this month. It won’t be too big a move (just to a bigger apartment in the same building I already live in) but still time consuming. 

This months werewolf movie Late Phases. If you wanna join me and my discord on Sunday, March 24 at 5pm PST pop on over by clicking here

As always I’ll be streaming art on Twitch. My schedule is currently the following:

Geekshow was kinda on pause the last few months because Spike had a health emergency. She is feeling better. So we can jump back to it now. 

Last month I’ve been doing the rounds to promo my kickstarter by jumping on a lot of podcasts. If you wanna here me talk about my stuff I was on:

In most of them I talk about the City Between. But War Rocket and Ajax we kind mostly just talk about pokemon and where is the line between Fantasy and Scifi. My answer is that fantasy runs on metaphor/vibes and scifi runs more on rules. But I always like hearing other people’s answers. 

Like I mentioned above I’ll mostly be doing promo and moving. During my streams I’m gonna try to get ahead on Shards of Reflection before drawing the last setting for the video game I’ve been doing art for. We finally picked a name for the name. It’s gonna be called Teething. 

The last scene is in a store. So gonna have to draw a lot of stuff on shelves. But I think I can get it done either this month or early next month. Then I can start giving Blue Moon all my extra attention. 

While working I’ve mostly been watching youtube videos. A lot of them were about explaining competitive pokemon but I did really like Broey Deshenal’s video about Saltburn. I always like her videos even if I don’t agree with them. Mostly because I like how she digs into filmmaking as an artform and focuses on movies that aren’t the big blockbuster hits. I’m also someone who spoiling a movie makes me want to see it more. (Like Sorry to Bother You‘s trailer made me think “That looks fun. I’ll check it out eventually” but then someone told me the big spoiler and I IMMEDIATELY rented it.) So even though she didn’t like Saltburn, her video made me bump it up my movies to watch list mostly because I want to see if I agree with her or not. 

Only other thing that has been getting my watch attention lately is Delicious in Dungeon. If you don’t know what that is, it’s about a dnd style party venturing into a magic dungeon. They can’t afford rations so they are eating the monsters as they fight them. There is a lot of fun cooking bit and talk about how a monster ecosystem would work. It’s just a lot of fun. And it’s full of great facial expressions. 

That’s it for this month! Thanks everyone for your support!

February Newsletter: Headed To Emerald City Comic Con And Launching A Kickstarter

This is crossposted from my newsletter which you can sign up for here

Hey folks, my biggest thing happening for me this month is I’ll be launching a Kickstarter for Murky Water. It will launch Feb 19th, click here to get an email as soon as I hit go. Get ready!

Also I’ll be at Emerald City Comic! My booth is 20201. I don’t know where that is because Reedpop hasn’t put a map up for Emerald City. Honestly, I’m super frustrated with Reedpop. There get worse and worse every year. I don’t know what I can do about it. Something has gone wrong with my table there every year. I always gotta make an angry phone call to them. I’m gonna try to work out next year at the show this year.

This month my discord is gonna be watching Dog Soldiers! Join me and some other folks February 24th at 3pm PST to hang out and watch some werewolf nonsense. Join in here!

As always I’ll be streaming art on Twitch. My schedule is currently the following:

Bones and I are still planning to stream some video games but we both got to get stuff off our plate.

I have been buried in Seven Seas manga editing this month. Honestly it left me kinda exhausted. But I did more reader question comics. If you got one let me know.

I’m almost done with my videogame art. Now that Seven Seas is gonna be less crazy, I’ll get it finished this month. There’s just a setting left. Having one less thing off my plate will be a relief.

I’m trying to set up my promo for the Murky Water kickstarter. Honestly, I’m kinda worried about it. I’ve mentioned before that social media really burns me out faster than anything else. This got linked in a comic discord I’m in and it honestly felt very true to me. And with twitter falling apart it seems to just be getting worse. Kickstarter promo is a lot of work. So I’m hoping I can still get mine over goal. I’ve also been watching my patreon decrease and I know that is partly because the economy is bad and times are rough for everyone. But it is also because I haven’t really had time to push patreon to new people unless it’s at con. So fingers crossed. Please back my patreon and buy my book when it’s on kickstarter. 

One to more positive stuff! Today I reached one of my fitness goals! I did 100 squats in a row! Now I’m gonna work on core strength more. Eventually, I’ll be able to do all the One Punch Man work out. I have been liking getting up in the morning and doing it first thing. Kinda good at waking me up.

I was gonna start to do little mini reviews. But Seven Seas basically gave me double the workload in January. So I haven’t had time to dig into that. I will probably wait until after my Kickstarter to start doing. Ya know, get videogame work out of the way before adding a new thing. 

Anyway, next month’s newletter, I’ll have a bunch of podcasts to link you all to. Thanks again for your support! Have a good one.
