Faking and Making
Posted January 1, 2019 at 01:10 am

Happy new year! I hope 2019 treats the world better than 2018 did. What a fucking asshole of a year.

So I got some plans for 2019. Resolutions? I dunno, shit I wanna get done.

  • Draw Write Now -- Me, Brandon Chalmers, and Phil Chan are gonna make something out of this aspirational brand in 2019 so get ready! We're gonna just fuckin' figure it out along the way and do it!
  • Draw Jam -- I wanna get 1000 subs on my drawing channel so I can be a youtube partner and flail about trying to make that shitty adsense money. I know, I'm late to the party. I'm always late to the damn party. bleh.
  • Kitsune Hoodies and merch in general -- I have samples in hand! I'm gonna try to figure out getting some good looking photos for them, but I'll be putting them up soon. And more merch in general. I'm gonna try prints this year. Last time I did them sucked, but that was decades ago (I'm fucking old). We'll see if there's a market!
  • Nomlings -- These dumps are getting refreshed and are coming back. Toys and merch and maybe an animation or two depending on how things go. We'll see.

Short list, but big dreams. I'm so grateful to everyone who's come back to check out YP after being gone for so long. I would really love to make this iteration work. A bunch of these projects will help me keep afloat if they all work out like I want. And I've also got a Patreon which I never talk about which I plan on talking about more in 2019. I post full resolution version of the comic and any other art that I produce throughout the year as well as previews of things so if that sort of stuff interests you, check it out.

But honestly, reading the comic and sharing with your friends is the best thing in the world to me. And I thank you all for coming back. Alright, back to the grind. More shit to come in 2019!!!

Yo, Lance, what?s going on?


SHIN

You?re Lance Li?

LANCE

I am! And you?


SHIN

Oh, Shin. I?m the new intern.

LANCE

Hey! Look at you guys getting all fancy and shit.


KANE

Like Bodie says, fake it ?til you break it. Or something?

====


SHIN

I? I?ve seen your work.


LANCE

Well, I figured. You know my name and I?m not really known for much else.

====


SHIN

Oh, this is embarrassing.


LANCE

Hah! Only because puritanical attitudes towards nudity have plagued our fragile society since its inception!

====

LANCE

For real though, don?t feel embarrassed. I wasn?t always, but I?m proud of what I?m doing now. I get to take a more active role in the direction of my career. Which is actually why I?m here.

BODIE

You know we got you. What?s up?


LANCE

Actually, I?m here for Julie.

New video! This took so damn long to put together. I have no idea how those graphic recorders do this live. Here's an overview of the business of comics in 2020, visual notetaking style!

The book is coming out August 4!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

You can get a preview of the first chapter on the Papercutz website here. This is a little rundown of how I painted to cover.

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!
