– Convention Season is coming! Looks like I’ll be at Chibi Chibi Con next month, Emerald City and Sakuracon in March and Stumptown (with Emma Capps!) in April!
– So back before the end of the year I read a review of Modest Medusa. The review was pretty fair, but the guy really didn’t like my art and described it as lazy. Sigh… sometimes I can be lazy, especially if I’m in a hurry. Then, about two weeks ago while I was at Newcon I met someone after my panel who told me that I had no business being on a webcomics panel because I clearly didn’t know how to draw at all, and my comic was one of the worst out there. That hurt. Finally, last week I discovered a webcomics review site that had some negative things to say about my comic. Some of them were really pretty valid, like criticsim about the poor site design and the number of adds (and I’m working with a friend to change both of those things).And again, they didn’t like the art.
I thought I’d really push myself on this story arc and do the best pages I can do. Which is why they’ve been taking longer than normal. I’m really happy with the way they’ve turned out and I hope you like them as well. I’m not fishing for compliments here. Instead, my plan for this year is to bring my ” A game” to every Modest Medusa page.
– Totally unrelated… I have some original art that I’d like to sell. I’ve tried offering it at conventions, but i never really had the table space. Anyway, I thought I might try posting a few illustrations on ebay with a $10 starting bid. I’ve never tried anything like that before. Am I wasting my time/ would any of you be interested in that?
– Also unrelated… next Monday I’ll be giving away some Modest Medusa shirts. I have 3 or 4 old shirts that have been hanging around forever, and if you’re willing to pay the shipping you can have one! I’ll be posting the details next Monday, so please remember to check it out!
