Revisiting New Year’s Resolutions 2015

I think I’ve done a pretty good job on my resolutions this year:

  1. Finish illustrating volume one (first 94 pages) of The Poet and the Flea.
  2. Use Kickstarter as a way for everyone to preorder The Poet and the Flea volume one.
  3. Have The Poet and the Flea volume one printed at a local company. This resolution is currently in progress and will be complete in a few weeks.
  4. Hopefully get into a summer publishing program at either NYU or Columbia. I attended the New York University Summer Publishing Institute this summer.
  5. Next semester, take “Publication Design with InDesign” course at Montgomery College.
  6. Get back to work on graphic novel The First ReichI haven’t had a chance to work on this yet, but I’m scheduled to get in touch with writer Shannon Brady in January and will take it from there.
  7. Finally go into production for short film Death Is No Bad Friend. Unfortunately, this project is on the back burner for now.
  8. Exhibit at SPX 2015 (to debut The Poet and the Flea volume one). I exhibited at SPX (Small Press Expo) this year, but The Poet and the Flea (Vol. 1) wasn’t ready yet. I’m hoping to debut the final book next year.
  9. Launch Radiant Pessimist Press. The Poet and the Flea (Vol. 1) is Radiant Pessimist Press’s first book.
  10. Continue practicing Japanese.

New Year’s Resolutions 2016

  1. Send out Kickstarter rewards ASAP!
  2. Work on illustrating The Poet and the Flea volumes 2 and 3. The script for all three volumes is complete. I’m hoping to start creating thumbnail drafts in the next few weeks.
  3. Get The Poet and the Flea (Vol. 1) into bookstores.
  4. Work on wolf-related and/or opera-related graphic novel script.
  5. Work on more illustrations for Hello Blob.
  6. Work on Harajuku-related project.
  7. Get back to work on graphic novel The First Reich.
  8. Exhibit at SPX 2016 and other alternative comic conventions.
  9. Get a part-time job that has a creative component and is fun.
  10. Possibly apply to some fellowships and/or programs.
  11. Continue practicing Japanese.

I know this is an overly ambitious list, so wish me luck! 🙂
