To be sure, the broad river now cut them off from this beautiful land. But the raft was nearly done, and after the Tin Woodman had cut a few more logs and fastened them together with wooden pins, they were ready to start.
The Chapter 8 intro illustration is finished! I’m going slightly out of order because the starting points for 7 and 9 are kind of bland, and I need to figure out something to say with those illustrations in the meantime. I’ve been swamped and chipping away at this one for a while; it’s a relief to finally move forward on this project again.
This is the first full-page we’ve seen of the whole group together!!
If you’re going to Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle this weekend (And You Should), I will be there at TABLE 310! I will have MANY BOOKS and THINGS, including the new Vattu book, the new edition of Rice Boy, and some new stickers and small things. I hope the above visual aids will be helpful to you (i will actually have more things than pictured here but, you know, broad strokes).
I am also participating in a PANEL! On Friday at 11:40, called “Beyond the Genre in Genre Fiction.” This is something I have a lot to say about. Some details.
My flight leaves at 7 in the morning on Thursday. AWESOME!
thank you to my friend Kristi for the photo of myself.
The Rice Boy book has now entered its FOURTH printing, and I re-designed its cover and overall design for the first time since the tiny overpriced print-on-demand version from 2008! I think it’s a good-looking book!
The first few hundred orders of the new edition will get the set of three stickers shown here- 3 by 3 inches, full-color screenprinting on vinyl. Like the best stickers I have ever had made fyi.
Thank you all for reading my comics and still consistently caring about something I started almost eight years ago, it means so much to me.
