Big YP No-Prize if you can figure out where they're walking! Remember, most of the architecture in YP is taken from local landmarks to the DMV (mostly the M side because I lives here).

Talk talking is good. But sometimes dumping all over your face is better! That's right, I'ma make "dump" a thing!

Site notes, I think everything should be back on track now. The RSS feed seems to be working alright so if you still use stuff like that, go ahead and add YP to your list of comics that you used to read and then forgot about but somehow remembered when Tokutember stuff started popping up in your feeds! And ads should be working now as well which isn't so much a big deal for you, but it would be nice to be able to pay for hosting once in a while.

Other notes, I'm planning on merching the hell out of stuff in 2019. I have an online shop right now, but I'm in the process of revamping stuff. I did take it down for a bit, but then I thought I'd do a soft launch of Draw Write Now, a project I'm working on with some friends. More on that as we develop it. Kitsune hoodies are returning. Nomlings are returning in merch form. Toys are coming. Whole mess of stuff. Books?

Ah. Books. Welllllllllllllll...

Even when I was updating on the regular, YP books never sold like gangbusters. I never sold out at any show I ever did. And even though books sales would get an initial bump when they first came out, they never really did that well. I will still be doing books and collections, just not of YP. And anyway, the new format really doesn't lend itself to physical print. But I will be doing more shorts like 47 Bronin and collections of Tokutember. So there will be print things. I suppose if there really is a big clamor for YP in print, I would consider it. The color season has never seen print. But for right now, I'm planning on keeping YP updated for free online as long as I can manage.

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!
