Hello folks! I hope you've been enjoying Slightly Damned and Soprano of Time! My summer vacation is almost at an end in the blink of an eye. When I return to school, I... well, I won't stop working on those things, but I will have a renewed focus on Junk Hyenas. It's gonna be one wild ride.

If you like my stuff and you would like to support my endeavors, I recently opened two easy ways for you to offer your support!

Here is my catch-all Storenvy shop with buttons, zines, Slightly Damned plushies and more: chu.storenvy.com/

2014 has been, in a word, harsh. But I'm finally home for summer vacation and I couldn't be happier! Wahoo! That doesn't mean that I can take it easy, though!

+ I'd like to start updating Slightly Damned more frequently, but for now I need to focus on keeping the weekly updates consistent while I tie up some loose ends. In the future, though, maybe more frequent updates will be a Patreon goal...

+ I aim to finish The Legend of Buwaro: Soprano of Time by late June! If it takes me a little longer than that, so be it, but I'm gonna aim for that date anyway! That's because I want to have more time to move onto new, original minicomics (or at least put a bit more elbow grease into Slightly Damned).

+ By the end of the summer, Slightly Damned Book Three and The Legend of Buwaro: Soprano of Time should be available to purchase!

+ I will be opening commissions TOMORROW! If you're interested, now's the time to review style and payment information here: raizap.com/commissions/

That's all for now! Stay cool!

Hi folks! Just thought I'd make a journal entry to say that I haven't completely dropped off the face of the earth. I've been real quiet on the internet lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy.

- My final project for my first year (out of 2) of grad school is a 24-page comic featuring Lucky & Guff, a pair of mutant hyena siblings in a strange sci-fi world. As of right now you can read 21 out of 24 pages of "What's Tomato With You?" right here: raizap.com/comics/tomato/
I aim to be completely finished by the end of the weekend, so stay tuned!

I'm happy Lucky and Guff have been getting a lot of positive responses. They're here to stay, and you'll be seeing a lot more of them and their world in the future! ...Eventually, anyway!

- Slightly Damned was nominated for two awards in the 2013 Ursa Major Awards. If you sincerely enjoy the comic and honestly think it deserves to win, please take the time to vote for it and your favorites in each category. I would really appreciate it, and it might help new readers discover Slightly Damned.

I know it's lame of me to asking for this boon when the comic is currently on hiatus, but I'm going to do my best to make up for delays this summer!

- Slightly Damned plushies and buttons are currently on sale in the store: www.sdamned.com/store/

And I can't thank you guys enough for all the kind words and understanding you've shared with me these past weeks and beyond. Thank you for giving me the inspiration to work towards a brighter future!

I just wanted to write a short entry to keep you guys informed of "current events".

- I'm going through some rough stuff right now, so I can't update Slightly Damned this month. You can read more about why here if you're interested: www.sdamned.com/2014/04/silent…

- My final project for my first year of cartooning grad school is to complete a 24-page comic about Lucky and Guff by May 2. I hope you'll enjoy it!

- I have a long summer vacation coming up that I want to dedicate to Slightly Damned. I aim to configure a Patreon account with a rewards system, finish The Legend of Buwaro: Soprano of Time, assemble Book Three, and try to do double updates at some point.

- A surplus of plushies, books, and buttons is on sale for a limited time in the Slightly Damned store. Of particular interest are the books: you can get them cheaper and faster than you'd be able to on IndyPlanet, plus they'll be signed! www.sdamned.com/store/

Thank you for always being so understanding! You guys are the best.
I just wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has ever supported Slightly Damned in all my years of making it. I’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way and I still have a lot to learn. I know the comic is far from perfect and my lack of ability is frustrating, but I’ve always tried to do my best. Thanks for encouraging me and giving me the chance to keep doing what I love.

Hi dudes! I'm sorry that I've been kinda flaky lately. These last few months have been madness.

- Slightly Damned updated today, and I will update again as soon as I can this weekend! sdamned.com/

- The Ursa Major Award nominations END TODAY! Please, if you like Slightly Damned, nominate it for "Best Graphic Story" and "Best Other Literary Work"! It would be a great honor and would help new readers find the comic. www.sdamned.com/2014/02/ursa-m…

- I will be attending the MoCCA Arts Festival with a table in Manhattan, New York, on April 5th & 6th! I plan to bring books, zines, plushies, postcards and new button designs. It'll be my first east coast convention as an exhibitor. See you east coast folks there!

- Don't forget that I've been uploading my non-Slightly Damned comics to my main site at raizap.com! That page really needs an upgrade, I know, but I hope you like the comics anyway.

- Upcoming commissions?: I don't know when I'll be able to take more, but I'll keep you guys posted. I might change the rules a bit with the next batch because while I really appreciated the support from everyon
Once again I am floored by everyone's support. Thank you all! From this one day alone I have gathered more than enough money to cover for my root canal!  I'm going to have to ask for another wave of commissions in a month or so, though, since the root canal is only half of the process. I'll have to get a crown to replace the part of my tooth that's going to be removed, and that's almost as expensive...

But first! I will do my best to complete all the commissions I have received. It'll be tough balancing all that work with my grad school and webcomic responsibilities, but I think I can manage. I'll do my best to complete all the orders in one month's time without giving myself a nervous breakdown. Ha!

Thank you all for your kind support! I won't let you down!

Bad news for me apparently means good news for some of you out there! It turns out one of my teeth has an infection and needs a root canal. And doubly unfortunately for me, my dental insurance won't help cover it because I've had my policy for less than 6 months! Even though the infection is pretty minor right now, an infection is an infection. I need to take care of it as soon as I can. FUUUUUU

So! I need to raise money. Lots of moneys. Which means it's almost time for me to take commissions! Here is my commissions page with pricing, available styles, and instructions on how to make an order: raizap.com/commissions/

Please e-mail me NO EARLIER than 12:00 AM EST and NO LATER 11:59 PM EST on Monday, November 11 to make your order!

(E-mail only, please. No notes since keeping track of orders in them is a bother. And if you don't have an e-mail address... how are you on this site, anyway??)

In the past, people have been left out of getting a commission because they didn't e-mail me fast enough. Instead of using a first-come, first-serve slot system, I'll acknowledge all commission orders within that 24-hour period and work through them in the order they're accepted.

I'll make another journal entry on Monday to remind people who are interested that commissions are open for the day. I just wanted to let you guys get a head's up in case anyone needed time to prepare.

Thank you!

I know I have been very quiet lately, but that's because I've been busy. That's what I always say, isn't it?

But it's true! I don't remember where I've mentioned this before, but now I'm making sure it's known: I am attending cartooning school. I am thousands of miles away from my desert home (and pets) in order to study the art of making great comics. For all intents and purpose, it is grad school. If I successfully complete my thesis project at the end of my second year, I will be awarded with a Master of Fine Arts degree. Of course, more important than the degree is the networking opportunities and the experience of being at such an awesome school.

It's somewhat challenging to balance my personal projects with my schoolwork. I've uploaded some of my stuff to my art sites, but not everything. Examples of what's missing: 2+ hours of figure drawing from life every week, writing manuscripts, weekly sketchbook and lettering assignments, screenprinting, and a 20 copies of a 20-page comic narrative made with stick figures. And that doesn't take into account the lectures, presentations, and the constructive criticism workshops. But I'm not complaining! It's been a ton of fun. It just keeps me busy.

I know Soprano of Time hasn't updated in a while. To be honest,  I'm thinking of withdrawing from the Top Webcomics ranking game. I guess I find it kind of depressing somehow, even though everyone has been amazingly supportive. But I can't ignore the fact that it brings in some traffic, so I haven't made up my mind yet. Either way, I'm determined to see Soprano of Time through to the end. Soprano of Time will return as Wednesday art updates in November. I don't know about December; I think I might like to do some winter/Christmas/Winter Solstice paintings.

When it comes to my priorities, school comes first followed by Slightly Damned. I could probably be a lot more diligent with my time management and get a lot more done. But I guess getting all stressed out wouldn't be good, either. These aren't excuses; I just wanted to explain what's been going on.

Thanks for putting up with me!

P.S. I just got word today that the Kieri plushies have finished production. Hopefully I'll hear about how the Rhea plushies are doing soon!

Goofy title intentional.

The Slightly Damned Plushification Project on Kickstarter (www.kickstarter.com/projects/1… 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. :P

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: chunochousen.tumblr.com/) 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!
www.phoenixcomicon.com/

I'll be there for all four days with my friends from Monster Hive (www.monsterhive.net/) 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: graylingcomic.net/), 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 (www.monsterhive.net/)?  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 (www.monsterhive.net/category/h… or catch it on iTunes (itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/mo… if that's what you prefer.

I'll keep making Chrono Trigger-themed titles as long as I please! Oh, but the real reasons I'm writing this post are:

1) The Slightly Damned Plushification Kickstarter is now live!



Help make Buwaro (and perhaps more) plushies a reality and get some cool swag for yourself in the process! Notice how there's even a tier where you can design your own characters to appear in the story, or get me to redraw past Slightly Damned pages. You can even score original sketches of comics! Gasp!

2) Don't forget to vote to help Slightly Damned win Ursa Major Awards!



Voting continues through mid-May (approximately when the Kickstarter ends) but I didn't want to clutter up the top of the Slightly Damned site with two banners. If your moral compass guides you to believe that Slightly Damned should win an award or two, then please take a few minutes to vote for it! It only takes a short amount of time, I promise.

3) Converting Slightly Damned pages into book format takes forever when you're an idiot who doesn't save anything properly!

I want to get Book 2 completed by the end of April, so I really need to focus. I don't want to leave Slightly Damned without updates, but like I've said before, this hectic schedule means I can't churn out two quality pages every week all the time. So I think next week (April 14-20) and the week after (21-27) there will be a Soprano of Time strip on the main site on the Wednesdays and a SD comic page on the Saturdays. You can vote on TWC if you want, but I don't mind if you don't and SD's rank falls. I will put images there to remind people to either check out the Kickstarter or vote in the Ursa Major Awards.


Thank you for your continued support and understanding!

The first Slightly Damned book is finally on sale at IndyPlanet! I know the price is a bit steep and it takes a while, but that's what happen when you have a print-on-demand title that's as big and colorful as this book! Believe me, the book looks great!

Here's the link to its IndyPlanet listing: indyplanet.com/store/product_i… Yes, they ship internationally!
If you want to see a video of what it looks like on the inside, I have one here on Flickr (although it's a video of the flawed first book, they are practically the same thing): www.flickr.com/photos/the_chu/…

...And if you don't want or can't afford a hard copy, a digital version of the book is now available on IndyPlanet Digital: www.indyplanet.com/digital/pro… It features the exact same content at a fraction of the price.

Slightly Damned has been nominated for Ursa Major Awards in the categories of Best Anthropomorphic Graphic Story and Best Anthropomorphic Other Literary Work.  Thanks so much, you guys!  But the fight for recognition isn't over.  SD needs votes in each category in order to WIN!

What are the Ursa Major Awards?
"It is intended as Anthropomorphic (a.k.a. Furry) Fandom's equivalent of the Hugo Award presented by the World Science Fiction Society, mystery fandom's Anthony Award, horror fandom's Bram Stoker Award, and so forth."

For those of you that want to know more about the UMA's, you can visit the official website here: www.ursamajorawards.org/index.…

How can I help?
Go to the Voting 2012 page here: www.ursamajorawards.org/voting… and follow the simple instructions to vote for Slightly Damned (in 2012, meaning pages #479-#563) in the categories of Best Anthropomorphic Graphic Story and/or "Slightly Damned Book One" in the category of Best Anthropomorphic Other Literary Work!  Since SD was already nominated (thanks again!) it will already be listed; all you need to do is click a number (preferably a 1!) and submit your vote.

Wait, why do you care? I thought you didn't like the furry label?
I just don't like being limited. If I went around calling Slightly Damned a furry comic, then people would think it's only for furries because of the stigma attached to that label. Slightly Damned is for everyone! And it would be nice to get some recognition for once.
...Besides, if works like "Brave" and "Rise of the Guardians" qualify, I don't see why Slightly Damned wouldn't.

Voting ends on May 15! Thank you for your continued support!

I'm always whining that Slightly Damned is crap because it has basically squat in terms of "notable" attention.  No professional reviews, no awards, no Wikipedia page, etc.  So this year, I want to try to win an Ursa Major Award.

What are the Ursa Major Awards?
"It is intended as Anthropomorphic (a.k.a. Furry) Fandom's equivalent of the Hugo Award presented by the World Science Fiction Society, mystery fandom's Anthony Award, horror fandom's Bram Stoker Award, and so forth."

For those of you that want to know more about the UMA's, you can visit the official website here: www.ursamajorawards.org/index.…

Nominations should be opening up sometime in January.

In the mean time how about we work together to get Slightly Damned onto the 2012 Recommended Anthropomorphic Graphic Story list?

What is the 2012 Recommended Anthropomorphics List?
This list is separate from the actual awards, and serves as a sort of archive of recommended Anthropomorphic art that was created in 2012.

The list can be seen in its entirety here: www.ursamajorawards.org/ReadLi…

Here's where you, my dear reader, come in.
Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to send an email to recommended@ursamajorawards.org that contains the following information:

The title of the work: Slightly Damned
A link to the website: www.sdamned.com/
Any other information you wish to include.  The exact instructions are on the Recommended List page in the above link, but they aren't much different than what I have stated here.

THE DEADLINE IS JANUARY 15, 2013!
PLEASE DO NOT SPAM THE EMAIL

EDIT: We did it! Slightly Damned will now be added to the recommendations list in mid-February, and nominations for the Ursa Major awards will be open shortly after that.  Keep an eye on the Ursa Major awards and the instructions for the nomination process (I will, too!) and maybe... just maybe... Slightly Damned has a chance.  Thanks for your support!

...of course, only if you actually believe that Slightly Damned should be recommended/nominated/awarded.

I know it may seem silly to covet an award like this, but... I dunno, I figure I have nothing to lose by giving it a shot.  Some of you might be confused as to why I care about a furry award when I've fought against being pigeonholed by the label for years, but I have two good reasons for this:
1) I think this is the only webcomic award where I have a snowball's chance in hell of actually being eligible for.  The Harvey and Eisner awards are just... yeah, no way, the Hugo Awards require registration for expensive cons (one in San Antonio, TX, one in London), and the Webcartoonist's Choice Awards have been dead for years.  If there's anything else out there that you guys know of, I'm all ears!

2) Hey, I figure if Pixar's Brave is elligble for an Ursa Major award, why not Slightly Damned?

(P.S. Thanks to Tec for writing the logistics stuff!)

The first Slightly Damned book is finally on sale at IndyPlanet!  I know the price is a bit steep and it takes a while, but that's what happen when you have a print-on-demand title that's as big and colorful as this book!  Believe me, the book looks great!

Here's the link to its IndyPlanet listing: indyplanet.com/store/product_i… Yes, they ship internationally!
If you want to see a video of what it looks like on the inside, I have one here on Flickr (although it's a video of the flawed first book, they are practically the same thing): www.flickr.com/photos/the_chu/…

...And if you don't want or can't afford a hard copy, a digital version of the book is now available on IndyPlanet Digital: www.indyplanet.com/digital/pro… It features the exact same content at a fraction of the price.

I've got some bad news for you guys: there will be no new Slightly Damned pages this week.  Maybe there could have been if I were the responsible type and had a buffer, but I'm not, so I don't.  Anyway, there are two reasons why I'm not going to be making any new Slightly Damned pages this week:

1) I'm making an emergency visit to California to see my grandpa.  He was recently diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer.  I originally planned to visit him after Anime Kaigi (animekaigi.com) this weekend, but my dad urged me to see him sooner rather than later.  So I'm making the trip BEFORE the convention.

2) Anime Kaigi (animekaigi.coom) is this weekend, and I'll be there Saturday and Sunday.  It's a very teensy con, but it'll still be a time- and energy-consuming affair.

I'll still try to work on commission stuff and Soprano of Time this week, but I'm not sure how much I'd actually be able to get done.  I don't want to make any promises I can't keep, so I'm being up front with you guys.  I don't have time for Slightly Damned right now.  I'll probably be able to get back to work next week, though!  Then things can proceed normally.

===

In other news, my friend and stand-up guy DemoWeasel (www.furaffinity.net/journal/39… is accepting commissions so he can afford a plane ticket to see his boyfriend this winter!  Why don't you hop on over to his site and check out what he can do for you?  (www.furaffinity.net/journal/39… It's for a good cause!  You won't be disappointed!

...and besides, my commissions are closed for the rest of the year. ;D

Hey, guys.  Sorry for being so late with the pages lately.  I'm trying hard not to miss any updates completely, so thank you for being very patient and understanding with me.  I kind of got in over my head because of all the family stuff, traveling, and computer issues these past few months.  I think I'll be able to pull out of it soon, though!  ...At least, I hope so.

In other news, the Slightly Damned store (sdamned.com/store) has 10 new button designs.  5 of them are standard buttons that will always be available.  I've rearranged the sets so now there are button pin sets A, B, and C.  The other 5 are special designs that will only be on sale through November 30th.  Get them while you can!

Also, I am reopening commissions within a couple of days!  I'm doing things differently this time: instead of only taking 10 orders, this time I will receive e-mails, notes, and what have you for 24 hours, starting 12:00am Pacific, Monday, October 1st.  If you want to place an order, you MUST contact me between 12:00am to 11:59pm.  Any orders before or after that will be ignored.  This way, people don't have to be worried about first-come, first-serve as long as you contact me within the 24 hour period.

This is the first time I've ever done it that way, so I wonder what will happen.  Let's find out!

From the ashes a new phoenix fire bee is born.  Slightly Damned's community has now been absorbed into a new consolidated community that includes of all Monster Hive comics.  That means we have a new forum and a new IRC chat channel.  Discover new comics and new comrades!

The new forums are located here: www.monsterhive.net/forums/
It's a new forum with a clean slate, so all the old topics are gone and you have to re-register.  BUT we do have backup copies that my friend and fellow hive member bugbyte may be able to access to dig up old posts.  If there's something you really need to see to continue your roleplaying or whatever, you have one week to request a salvage.  More information is in the appropriate thread.
(Registration required to see the whole forum.)

The new chat channel can be accessed through this info page: www.monsterhive.net/irc.html

Note: because we have a completely clean slate, that means all bans from the past are gone.  We're starting completely anew.  We're also doing our best to keep the place as friendly as possible (...while keeping it PG-13, of course), so this is a great opportunity to use a second chance to make a fresh start.

The Hive is also planning to have a "Chat with Hive" event in about a week.  It's like the "Chat with Chu" events in the past, except you'll get to talk to every creator of every hive comic.  We still need to work out the details about when we'll meet, but I expect it could be as soon as next weekend and it will be at least 2-3 hours long.  Although if you come into the chat today, you just may find some hive members!
