Do You Even Email, Bro?
Posted January 29, 2019 at 11:03 am

The person who knows the most is often the one who knows they know nothing! If I ever (god forbid) get into a management position at any sort of company, I will do my best to look for people who know a whole helluva lot more than me and then make sure to pay them thusly! And probably accidentally hire myself out of a job. LOL!

Also, I need to make an email list. Also I have one. Also I need to promote it better.

BODIE

Most of our work has come from word of mouth. Friends or friends of friends.

BODIE

And, uh, that?s kinda been it.


SHIN

I can tell.

====


BODIE

What?


SHIN

Well, you?re not on social. Your site just has your basic contact info. No case studies. No blog. If it wasn?t for that badass internship description, I would have never heard of you guys.

====


SHIN

Do you even have a mailing list.


BODIE

Ally?s been talking about starting one.


SHIN

She really is the smart one.


BODIE

Oh, most definitely.

====


SHIN

I? hmm, how do I say this. I don?t know how your internships typically work, but can I take some time and put together a proper proposal? For what I should be doing here?

BODIE

One. To be honest, you are our very first intern. And two, we hired you for your ideas. If you need some time to put something together, please!

====


BODIE

I mean, clearly we need the help!


SHIN

Yeah, you do.

I'm so excited!!!! School for Extraterrestrial Girls Volume 1: Girl on Fire is finally finished and ready for preorder!!! And if you click on that link, you can download and read the first chapter for free! If there's a limit to exclamation points, I'ma break that shit in this post!!!

Working with Jeremy on this book has been a true delight. There have been moments when I wanted to shout at Tara and moments when I just wanted to hug her as I was drawing pages. I've also learned a whole lot about what it takes to complete a long form project like this. Papercutz has been super supportive throughout the process and we couldn't have asked for a better team. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on this book!!! I'll be sure to throw copies at everyone I see.

So now you can see what's taken me away from YP for so goddamn long. I'm taking a short break to finish up some projects that piled up during production, but I do intend to get back to some YP goodness. I probably won't be able to sustain a regular schedule since Book 2 is on the near horizon, but I plan on updating as I can.

If you would like to see a full preview of Book 1, I've posted the full colored book over at my Patreon in all its glory! I also post a weekly podcast over there with news and commentary on the art scene so if you're looking for things to occupy your brain for a few minutes, check it out!

Alright, that's it for now! I'll yell about all sorts of updates and such as they happen!

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!
