I'll have to itemize everything because there are so many thoughts. I will be expanding some of these into their own journals once I get the chance, perhaps.
1) Otakuthon. Montreal was great! But we didn't sell too many things. The venue seemed to have expanded too large for the numbers of attendees, so more dealers and artists were struggling for a small piece of a smaller pie. It happens. Thanks to everyone who stopped by. I will write a more detailed account later.
2) Fan Expo is happening August 25th to the 28th. My table is at A269 in the artist alley. You will find a floor plan and schedule here: [link]
are listed as Velharthis Comics. I will be tabling with my friend Chantal who makes buttons and t-shirts.
3) Filthy Figments! I have a new comic and it is available through a pay comic site called Filthy Figments! The name of my comic is Verte et Rouge, and is a watercolour adult comic set at the start of the French Revolution. However: This site is NOT SAFE FOR WORK and you should not be accessing it if you are younger than 18 years old. ---> www.filthyfigments.com
4) Velharthis. This is a big one. I haven't discussed my webcomic in a few months, and that's because I sat down and thought about where I wanted to be with it in the next year or so. As it stands, I could never publish it. Why? Because it's not in a publishable state. Therefore, I have decided to restart the comic from chapter one.
This process will obviously take several months, and I have already started. All the chapters will be redrawn and some of the story will change to be more cohesive. I will also be overhauling the website to better tie into today's social media and be easier for people to share the comic when they like it. I am hoping this overhaul to be complete by May 2012. By that time I also hope that all this backwork will mean that I can regularly update the comic several times a week. The bonus is that everything will look WAY nicer and make more sense.
5) Fan Comics: The overhaul of Velharthis means I will be devoting less time to fan comics, so if you're reading this and are wondering about when a new Zelda fan comic is coming out... it will be done when it's done and I'll tell you.
6) People keep asking to use my art. The majority of requests are asking to use my fan art. Please don't ask. Just use it. Just don't use it for profit. More on that here: [link]
7) Note for future convention attendees: someone spilled an iced coffee drink on my comics at Otakuthon. It was an accident, but this is why attendees are banned from bringing drinks and food into dealers and artists areas. Even if there aren't signs, please drink them outside. I lost a handful of comics and had to throw them out, and that almost made me cry.
