Drawing complete!

At long last, after a final 48 hour comics sprint I finished the last page of Sorcerers & Secretaries book 1 on Nov. 22, around 7pm. After finishing the book I went with Kazu and our talented friend David to see the latest Harry Potter film (which was fun).
I have to say, after all of this comicking I feel even better prepared to tackle RM when the time comes. Planning out a book that comes out in 170 page chunks feels so much different than doing something like a monthly series or a webcomic, it's more like writing a novel than your usual serialized work... which is fine by me. =) Now I get to start up on some of the side projects that have been building up, all of which are a welcome break to writing romantic comedy! I miss writing and drawing monsters, social-political intrigue, action, and all that good stuff.
Well, in any case I thought I'd drop in with my little update on my progress before the holiday. My Mom and Bro are stopping by from Hawaii! It'll be the first time I've seen them in about a year! Yowza! They're two of my favorite people in the world, so this is going to be an awesome reward from my first comics marathon.
Hope everyone else has a great Thanksgiving too! See ya!

Three Trees

3 Trees Make A Forest Exhibit

If you're in Los Angeles on November 19th be sure to swing by the Nucleus at 30 West Main Street in Alhambra for a very special event, the gallery opening of "Three Trees Make A Forest", an exhibit of the works of Ronnie Del Carmen, Enrico Casarosa, and Tadahiro Uesagi. All three of the artists will be present for the opening, it's sure to be a memorable night!

In other news Kazu and I moved to a new apartment! I've been moving a lot lately, from brooklyn to cali, from kazu's old studio to our interim place in san gabriel, and finally from san gabriel to alhambra. Moving so much is giving me a confused sense of place, but things are finally feeling a little more permanant in terms of housing.

My book deadline is around the corner and I won't have internet access beyond occasional email checks at my friend's gallery until the 16th. If I haven't replied to emails or thread replies, this is why, not because I hate anyone or anything! XD

So to my friends and family, if you need to contact me just call. I always have my cel phone on me! =)

November Manga Online

Read Chapter Five (click the button that says "read chapter" on the left)

Comment on Chapter Five

Helloooo everyone~

So Manga Online (formerly takuhai...) November edition is online now. They have a bunch of new series up along with the usual suspects so check them out. They also have a re-uhhh... "print" I guess of a Newsarama interview with me.

Also, don't forget to download, print, and present to your local comic shop retailer the flyer from the previous entry! =D

In other news, Kazu and I found an apartment and we're NOT moving to Portland at the moment. We just have too many projects to do right now for a bigger move like that, but we definitely need more space. Our 500 sq.ft. apartment isn't enough if you're working at home. But this new place will suit us juuuuusst fine! Can't wait to settle in, it'll just be tough juggling that and finishing up this book in time. =P Back to the drawing board I go~
