Revisiting New Year’s Resolutions 2017
- Work on illustrating The Poet and the Flea volumes 2 and 3. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to work on The Poet and the Flea volumes 2 and 3 in 2017 due to too many other projects. Hopefully, I will have some time to work on it soon!
Work on illustrating The Plague and Doctor Caim.I’ve illustrated up to page 18 (out of 100) of The Plague and Doctor Caim. I hope to get back to this project soon too. Send queries to literary agents about The Plague and Doctor Caim.I sent query letters to over 100 literary agents, but did not have much luck. This year, I’m taking a few different approaches on getting my work published. Hopefully, something will work out! Work on wolf-related, opera-related, and/or Wild-West-related graphic novel scripts.I worked a bit on the script for the wolf-related graphic novel and hope to complete it soon. Work on more illustrations for Hello Blob.I ran a successful Kickstarter to self-publish/print a full-color book of Hello Blob illustrations! You can check it out here: kickstarter.com/projects/868711984/hello-blob. Exhibit at SPX 2017, DC Zinefest, and other alternative comic conventions.In 2017, I exhibited at SPX, DC Zinefest, and Bmore Into Comics. Continue to work on my Patreon account (patreon.com/gegallas). I’ve been very busy working on my Patreon account. I post something new to it almost every day. Right now, I have 10 patrons! Work on some more freelance illustration projects.I worked on a few freelance illustration projects in 2017. Some went better than others. I hope to work on more in 2018. Possibly put lots of work into a new illustration portfolio.I didn’t really make any illustrations specifically for a portfolio, but I worked a lot on my new webcomic pawnmysoul.tumblr.com. Continue practicing Japanese. I’m always watching Japanese movies and TV shows as well as listening to Japanese rock music. It helps me keep up my Japanese.
