- The Poet and the Flea
- Printing: After much trial and error, The Poet and the Flea (Volume 1) is finally printed! Last week, I picked up the paperback edition and sent out all paperbacks for Kickstarter backers. Yesterday, I picked up the hardcover edition and will begin preparing them to be sent out. Storenvy orders will be sent out soon.
- Distribution: Next, I will be submitting The Poet and the Flea (Vol. 1) to a few alternative press distributors. I also have a list of bookstores that might be interested in carrying The Flea. As always, you can order The Poet and the Flea (Vol. 1) via Storenvy: thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com/products/14290572-the-poet-and-the-flea-vol-1-paperback-edition.
- Work in Progress: Over the past few weeks, I have been working on thumbnail drawings (rough sketches of illustrated pages) for The Poet and the Flea. I have finished drawing thumbnails for volume two and am almost done with thumbnails for volume three. Volume two will be 123 pages long. Volume three will be a bit longer than that.
- The Plague and Doctor Caim
- I have been working on a new graphic novel project about a plague doctor. The script is a little over half way finished. The graphic novel will be 100 pages long when illustrated. I finished drawing, coloring, and designing the cover and am in the process of drawing the first five or so pages.
- Upcoming Conventions
- I’ve been applying and continue to apply to a bunch of comic-book-related conventions. There are a few conventions I will be exhibiting at coming up in April. So I will post a schedule soon.
- Part-Time Job
- For the past month or so, I have been very busy working part-time as a cake decorator and am just starting to get used to it. Most of my coworkers are very nice and friendly, and the work is somewhat creative and fun, so it’s not too bad.
- There are a number of applications I’m in the process of working on. I can’t give any details yet, but I’ll let you know if I have any good news! 🙂
