Fanart and Updates!

Friday, March 13th, 2009

So it seems I haven’t really updated this bloggish type area in a long while! Over a month (just a little!). Many apologies. Things have been going on and it’s crazy times.

What’s new in my life? I’ve been fostering a cute stray calico; experimenting with new kinds of art involving ink brushes, bristol paper, and tones (so check out updates to my art gallery); and last weekend I got to hang with webcomicker Ross of The System and some old and new friends all night long. I’ve generally been quite busy and between the kitty and Frey’s running wheel breaking down and squeaking all night, I’ve also had a huge lack of sleep. So if my comics have been terse or sparse, now you know why!

In other news, I apoligize for not sharing these great fanart-type pieces with you sooner! From Shade comes a beautiful xmas gift illustration (love the bristly painted look and texture!), from friend and previous co-worker Ray comes a piece on the other end of the spectrum with hard lines and tones that’s cute and simple, and from webcomicker Jhorsley of Y2CL comes a neat fanart drawn on the back of a comic page!! Thanks all! They’re freakin’ awesome!

New England Webcomics Weekend, Here We Come!

Friday, March 20th, 2009

You read that correctly! The two gals of Nerd Comics (yours truly and the wonderful bree) are going to Meredith Gran’s New England Webcomics Weekend. It was just so crazy we had to go, and we got lucky and were able to find a car in the nick of time (many thanks to Mom and little sis :P )! So we’ll be there, but unfortunately only on Saturday. It’ll be good times I’m sure, meeting up with good friends and making some new ones! If you’d like to meet, please get my contact information by e-mailing me! It’s auilix (at) gmail.com! (By the by, woohoo! That’s me on the right. I don’t think I’ve posted a picture of me here yet. Don’t I look just like I do in the comic!? It’s uncanny!)

And some great upcoming events that are closer to home are rearing their head, this on by Onezumi: NJ Webcomic Chaos! You can be sure us Nerd gals will be there as well!

Also, hello to all the new people who have been coming to my site. I hope you’ll stick around and enjoy yourselves here!
