Press-Ready

Press-Ready Banner

After years of writing and handbookbinding, I knew that my love for creating books would carry on throughout my lifetime. In 2013, I decided to try my hand at having a sketch book printed on demand. It shall not see the light of day. In 2014, I put together a short graphic novel and tried printing again. This book was Style Quest. Riding this success, I produced and crowdfunded the printing of my most recent book Bellmage.

Now, as I prepare for another book release later this year, I’d like to share what I’ve learned about publishing and preparing your book for print. This series will run on Patreon: a space where people who enjoy my work and my brand can help support the creation of more books. I believe in making information available to everyone, so the first week of these posts will be free to the public.

Today’s topic is why: Why producing and publishing your own books is a great idea. Read here.

Feel free to leave comments, questions or request topics for later on in the month!

How Many Iterations? + A Video

Mirin Over Time

Sadly we’re missing the transition between the first and second image. The ram horns phase…

I came upon a note in my list of project questions for Woolmancy: “Character design, how many iterations?”

I laugh at this, and kind of laughed when I wrote it. No matter how many times I refine my design, it’s going to change once I start placing the actors on their stage (drawing the real deal comic pencils). That’s when I see them delivering their lines and playing their parts and that’s when they come to life!

Also, I just made a Patreon-exclusive video available to the public to celebrate the opening of this website. Have a look!
