So it’s October, my favourite month of the year. And that means it’s also Inktober, and since I haven’t been drawing as much as I’d like lately, I’m going to try to get going again by doing Inktober, drawing a little every day. If you want to follow along, I’ll be posting my doodles to Instagram, which will feed into my Twitter. I’m anagramforink on both.
Yay! I’ll be taking Fey (and a few other things I’m working on) to the Dartmouth Comic Arts Festival in Dartmouth, NS (that’s across the harbour from Halifax for you non-Nova-Scotians).
It’s at the Alderney Landing ferry terminal, so it’s super easy to get to via public transit (ferry fare counts as bus fare, so you can use your bus pass or transfer if you’re coming from the Halifax side). It runs from 11 am to 5 pm on August 17th (that’s a Sunday), and the best part is, it’s totally and completely free to get in.
At my table, you’ll find copies of Fey chapter one, and hopefully chapter two (maybe chapter three, but I’m not sure how likely that is). I’ll have a brand-new mini-comic (not related to Fey), plus a couple of older ones that are Fey-related. I might have a few copies of my prose novels, depending on how ambitious and rich I am, and I’ll have stickers (fairies!), prints (Fey things, dragons, satyrs), 3D paper dragons and kits, and maybe a few other odds and ends).
Now I have to go spend the rest of the day scanning monster images and pages of Fey.
I’ve been getting so much comment spam (and some of it’s really strange), that I’ve had to set comments to “moderated.” So if you comment and it doesn’t appear right away, that’s why. It’s waiting for me to approve it. I may not get to it right away, but never fear, I look at all the comments at least once a day, so if you leave a real comment — even if it’s not necessarily something I agree with (in other words, you can critique my comic without fear of me censoring you, unless you’re just being mean) — I’ll approve it sooner or later.
I started writing Fey approximately a million years ago (let’s just say the date started with “19”), and then re-drew a whole bunch of it about ten years ago, and somewhere along the line, I got off track or busy with art school, or something. And I stopped drawing Fey.
But I’ve always intended to finish the story. So here I am, re-launching from page one (no, I didn’t re-draw them again). My plan is to publish one page a week, so I have some hope of actually keeping up this time. In the unlikely event that Fey becomes super popular and makes me some income (I’ll have the usual T-shirts and print comics and who knows what else, eventually), I might even post more often. But for now, I’ll see if I can stick with once a week. Wednesdays, I think, since today is a Wednesday and this is my first post.
I’m still fumbling my way through setting up the theme and all, so expect some weirdness to begin with. And the first page will be up shortly. Like, today. Woo!
