Journal Entry: Tue May 14, 2013, 10:38 AM
First of all, thanks everyone for making my birthday (which was on May 12th) a special day. I haven't had time to respond to everyone who sent me well-wishes because I'm preparing for convention season (only a week left), but I did read all of them and they made my day.
On the Kickstarter front, I'm just waiting for everything to be delivered. The turn-around from my printer is taking longer than I had expected. Everything should be here by Friday. If not, I will update everyone to the situation as soon as I find out.
Starting next week, I'm heading to four conventions in a row. Animazement, A-kon, Colossalcon, and Animegacon. So I'll be AFK in one way or another for about four weeks.
Preparing for cons has been a whole lot of not fun. I ordered all this material (paper, ink, etc.) only to have my printer die on me half way through. I've been trying to find a local shop that can run my larger prints for an affordable price before I leave on my con circuit, but their prices so far have been so high that I actually laughed out loud (not to their face at least). No wonder the internet is kicking your industry's ass if you're going to charge 12 times the rate of my online printers.
Rose Slayer books are here and I'm just drawing everyone's special sketches before I send them out. If you missed it, they will be made available for sale after I come back from my trip. I also have a VampYou collection in the works;more info on that next month after cons.
The next project on the horizon will be the Lavender Legend materials book, which will contain art, reference material, and other articles from the webcomic. This is slated for October, but we'll have to see what I get myself into between now and then.
