Goofy title intentional.
The Slightly Damned Plushification Project on Kickstarter ([link] was a runaway success! Wow! Thanks to everyone's generosity, no fewer than 6 Slightly Damned plushies have been completely funded. I can't wait to get my mitts on all those Buwaro, Rhea, Kieri, Sakido, Iratu, and Crunky dolls! It will take a few more months for all of them to be completed, of course, but you can expect to see them all on sale by early 2014.
Don't forget to vote to help Slightly Damned win Ursa Major Awards!
Voting continues through until THIS WEDNESDAY (the 15th). I'm warning you now that on Wednesday the Slightly Damned website will update with the Ursa Major comic I already uploaded here.
Even though I'm done with the second Slightly Damned book, I'm too busy for twice-a-week updates. The Kickstarter is an ongoing project, since I need to oversee the plushie designs, prepare the bonus rewards and shipping materials, and make sure all the money gets used wisely. I also have to prepare for Phoenix Comic Con. I'm leaving for comics school in September. And partially because of the convention, our house will be full of partying guests until the end of the month!
...Okay, so maybe that last one doesn't sound very responsible, but let's say it's necessary for my mental health.
I think I'm going to have to officially give up on updating Slightly Damned with a full page twice a week. It's just too much work for me to handle right now, what with the Kickstarter to take care of, a huge convention at the end of this month, and school looming in the distance. When I'm at school, I expect I'll be too busy to update all my ongoing projects (Slightly Damned, Soprano of Time, and my art challeng on Tumblr: [link] consistently every week. I need to take some some this summer to make a buffer so I can keep up with everything while I'm off at school, so I'm going to cut Slightly Damned back to its originally Saturdays-only update schedule-- effective immediately.
However! You guys will still have stuff to look at on Wednesdays. Thanks to the success of the Kickstarter, I'll be sure to post some sort of Slightly Damned-related art every Wednesday from July through December 2013. Stuff like that is much easier to provide than full pages, anyway. And like I've mentioned before: I will be drawing a LOT at school, so it's not like I'm going to stop making content or anything. It just can't all be Slightly Damned pages, Soprano of Time strips, or Pokemon paintings.
I'm going to Phoenix Comic Con!
I'll be there for all four days with my friends from Monster Hive ([link] at our tables in the Artist's Alley. Most of the most frequent contributors to the Hivecast will be there, such as Arby (creator of Grayling: [link], Rurik, Pyro, and Acri. I'll also be selling charms, stickers, signed books, commissions, possibly signed prints, and buttons (both Slightly Damned-related and fanart-related, like Pokemon and MLP). Hope to see you there!
Did you know that I've started hosting a podcast with my friends at MONSTER HIVE ([link]? It's called Hivecast, and there's a new episode out every other week. We talk about all sorts of storytelling themes, gripes, cliches, and we kind of get drunk and cuss a lot. It's a grand old time! You can listen to the show right on the MONSTER HIVE website ([link] or catch it on iTunes ([link] if that's what you prefer.
Commissions are closed indefinitely!
