I have been so busy lately and written only a few posts over the last couple of months. Well it's time to end all this and get everything started again.
What I'm Reading
I'm in between books right now. I just finished Horde by Ann Aguirre. It's sort of a YA Zombie Apocalypse story. I don't want to say too much as to give away the plot. I loved the characters and there were evil flesh eating monsters so my kind of book.
What I'm Writing/Drawing
Now that it's the end of the year I've finally figured out a good way to do interviews. Instead of spending an hour writing and sending out every interview I'm changing things so it takes me less time. How much less? I wrote and sent out 9 fun interviews in under an hour. Some of the questions are slightly insane, but it's all good.
I'm working on a lot of new art pieces for VCON. This has kept me busy all month. It doesn't help that my son decided to wreck on of these pieces with a marker (the most detailed one of course). I'm getting close to finishing all my colour drawings!
I'm also in cahoots with a few other artists to make a free digital colouring book for all my favorite people out there. Who are my favorite people? If you are reading this, then you are among my favorite people!
