Time Flies!

Whoa it’s been almost a month since I have been on here, writing updates and sharing the current state of my project Cosmic Rage.

It’s been a very exciting time and there has been a ton of things going on since I last blogged. I don’t like taking long breaks from the blog but there was just a lot of life event going on and Cosmic Rage was put on hold for a bit to get things sorted out. So let’s back track a bit and get all of our bases covered!

I was at Anime Fargo last month and really enjoyed the con. I had a great time talking with new people and seeing some familiar faces. I have been to Anime Fargo each of the last 3 years, which is how long the con has been running. It is always a good time to chat and catch up with people there. I met some awesome people in the Pokemon party room that were kind enough to share info about the local nests. In between events I was able to get to a nearby park that was actually a Bulbasaur nest!

After Anime Fargo, I spent the time finishing up packing for the move before I left to go on a family vacation. When I am on vacation, I really like to unplug so I try not to use social media since I am typically online for over half the day anyways. It’s a nice time to relax and enjoy nature. I did my first (and only so far) inktober piece on vacation as well. I was inspired by the ocean and the nearby Pokemon gyms so I drew up a Lapras.


Once we were back from vacation, it was time for the move. We spent all weekend moving things from our apartment to our new house. Plus, we had to remove our community garden too. Talk about a relaxing weekend right? Yesterday the internet was hooked up so I could get back online after work and get updates posted and get back into the swing of things.

So what is on deck for the upcoming week? Well, my e-book revisions are in. So I need to sit down this weekend and get those knocked out. Ideally I would like to get the book into the store over the weekend too. But I am not 100% sure how that process works since this is my first e-book. The other task at hand, I need to get my desk put back into place and get it ready to go. Things are moved into rooms, now it is just a matter of unpacking and putting things in order.

I am ready to get back into Episode 2!

Production Update 150: Inktober

It’s that time of the year. The colors are changing, our garden had to be cleaned up and of course, Inktober. For those of you that don’t know, Inktober is a month where artists post up a lot of their ink work. Mine is a little different but I have spent quite a bit of time inking so far in October as well.

In the last couple production updates, I have mentioned that I forgot about two scenes somehow and needed to get them inked, colored and shaded. Phase one of that process has been completed as I can report that I have finished inking these two scenes. It feels so weird to be inking at this stage of production. Can’t believe I missed those scenes. Going to push forward on coloring and shading these shots this week.

It was a pretty hectic week outside of Cosmic Rage work. We had to spend half of our weekend tearing out our community garden since it is the end of the season and we have to be out this week. I also spent some time on a couple freelance projects I have going on. I am planning a very busy con schedule in 2016 with episode 1 of Cosmic Rage so these projects are very important.

There are also a couple items that I can’t talk about but are very exciting. They are some things that relate to Cosmic Rage but it’s simply too early to talk about. Just wanted to let you know there are a few things that are going on behind-the-scenes that will be unveiled at the right moment.

I believe I am still on schedule for hitting the marks I have set for myself and the project this year.
