Long time no update here, and postings have been few and far between! It's been one heckuva year. Lessee. So, after hopping over to Texas to bridesmaid for my 7th-grade, tragically-moved-away BFF in March, I get back and my laptop dies, so that was about a month of working on loaners and making do; there was that crowdfunded Rues de Lyon
/Queen of the Linden Trees
10-page one-shot history comic what I was advertizing here in my previous Journal, done in traditional inkwash whee; and of course, work on volume 3 of Alyssa
, my main contracted work for big French publisher Soleil/Delcourt (they're poised for a massive flooding of the US digital comics market with translated works soon....), which all the aforementioned kinda disrupted and delayed.... well that and having to draw detailed panels of famous London landmarks, since this album involves a school trip across the Channel. EURGH. Anyway, so. June-July were heatwave and tunnel-vision single-minded work on finishing the album within waving distance of the original deadline, much stress and little sleep. And just after wearily getting my finalized files uploaded I was rushing off on a family holiday to motherlovin' CHINA, package-tour seeing the sights and all. Which was lovely and unfamiliar and enchanting and exhausting.
But I am back, and I am done with final push madness! And I shall upload plenty of samples of those works - Alyssa 3 is full of geeky easter eggs.
And yes, time now for all long-neglected personal projects and some fandom stuff...

Thanks for hanging in there!
Also, I am getting notifications from people citing me in their answers to the devart Questionnaire as a fave or someone they'd like to meet and y'all are sweet sweet-potato dumplings.
