Hey everyone... 

Well, what can I say? It's been, what? 4 Months since my last journal entry? Yeah, something like that... 

I did promise myself I wouldn't post up another journal entry until all of Zenyaku part 2 was complete, but I guess I'm always changing my mind. At this point in time, I've got 2 pages left of Zenyaku left. I wasn't going to make my deadline of the end of this month unfortunately, again, thanks to work. People getting sick, then going on holidays, guess who had to cover them? Me... It really messed up my plans for Supanova. 

However, there is a plan B... 

Which is basically make more small paintings. The small paintings I've been making have been doing me good, people have taken notice and I have sold all of them (Except Mordecai) at the cons and expo's I've appeared at so far. The Mackay pop-culture con turned out to be a bigger hit than expected, I don't think I sold more Sonic & Adventure Time prints than ever! The Zine fair went down a treat too. My first ever comic/zine All You Can Read was the highest seller, surprisingly. 
Now the next one is Brisbane's Supanova which will be held at the convention centre right at the end of the month. Honestly, I'm not really looking forward to it mainly because Zenyaku #2 didn't get finished in time and I wanted to launch it there and then, but it'll have to wait until the Gold Coast one. I am aiming to have another book out, another random short story collection book. Plus some new prints. New paintings (Maybe even complete the Sonic Dirties booklet). Possibly launch two books at the same time. Maybe... 
Basically just get prepared for this Supanova, then finish off Zen #2. 

And yeah, not much else. Apart from putting up with G20, it's been the same ritual; Work, Art; Sleep. Plus the upcoming Christmas holiday bullshit...

As always man. Noticed you haven't updated on the facebook page. Over it already?

I don't know... I think you were the only person looking at that facebook page!!  Ha ha... I guess I still need to upload stuff to it... Every time I put a new page up I try to hit dA and tumblr in addition to the actual webcomic page, but the facebook page is starting to get a little depressing with such a low turnout. Then again, it literally takes about thirty seconds to upload, so I better get back to doing it!!!  Thanks for noticing!!!
