The Saga of Selling My Next Comic
I've been holding off announcing this for various reasons, but now's the time, I think. Drumroll pls. Okay! First Second Books, towering publisher of such luminaries as Gene Yang, Nick Abadzis, and Paul Pope (eventually, I assume) has been suckered into - I mean, will be publishing my next graphic novel. Completely written and drawn by ME. HAHAHAHA. Oh man, cool, huh?

First of all, omigod Ice is updated with 7 new pages!!!! Oh man, don't trust that queen, Hunter. She's scary.
Yeah, that was brutal. But hey, they're done and they're up, and there's a reason why they aren't shaded, but I can't get into that right now, so enjoy them anyway. And wow, that scene is DONE. Hey, I might be able to finish this thing someday after all.
OTHER EXCITING STUFF!

My boyfriend and I are in the midst of doing a Great Lost Re-watch before the beginning of Lost season 6, the final season of that great show that once and for all will wrap up every storyline in a neat little package (right, Lost creators, RIGHT???). It's been a lot of fun re-watching the first season and seeing the beginnings and gestations of the show, and how it's evolved over the years. While I believe that the Lost creators and writers did have some idea of where they'd take the show, I don't believe they had EVERYTHING figured out from the very beginning.

Y'all are free to laugh at my hilarious creative process that involves 3 or 4 lined notebooks, pen scrawls in what possibly could be interpreted as English, and the disapproving glare of my cat. Anyway, it's weird, but it almost works. Is not my handwriting HIDEOUS?

So the title of the comic I finished drawing in June has been changed. Originally it was called The Fielding Course, but now it's Brain Camp. Everyone tossed in a few title suggestions during the process, me included. Since this is a comic about a creepy summer camp and how there may be monsters in the forest, and it's all a metaphor for how puberty is scary as hell, I suggested There's a Monster in my Pants. That title was not chosen. :D

Ice is updated with four new pages! Hoo aahhh.
Hunter continues her death staredown with the Queen, and wow, something that was introduced like three years ago gets explained. Oy, I have been drawing this comic for far too long ... be finished already!

I don't feel like working on anything at the moment, so let's blog:
Anonymous asked (paraphrased slightly): "What is the "girl cartoonist trap"?
Good question! I don't know. Next!

Round #2 of questions:
kyubikitsy asked: I would like to hear about your personal art school experiences - what was good about it, bad, what you would do over again if you had the chance, etc?

Alright, answering questions time. Hopefully these will turn out to be halfway interesting, and I don't bore you all to death. Remember: These responses are based on my experiences, so other people might have had different ones. I can only relate what's happened to me.

I've been racking my brains lately, trying to come up with some interesting comic/art related things to blog about, and sadly I've been failing miserably. So I thought maybe I'd ask and see if you, lovely blog readers, had any questions about my experiences so far in the comic and animation industry. I can't claim to be any sort of expert on what happens, and so far I think my experiences have been atypical (I've never done anything like a portfolio review, which seems to be the go-to for breaking into comics), but they might be worth something to someone somewhere (I'm aiming high).
