The Plight Of Frowners [Comic]

Finally, Gene speaks!!!  I'm glad I had some gorgeous scenery to look at while I worked these comics out.  It was pretty tough so it was nice to have something serene and happy to look at between panels.

Montana was a lot of fun.  It was my first time in the state and my first time spending so many days at such a high elevation.  I found it a bit difficult to take full breaths.  The first day kinda sucked because I was dealing with allergies and elevation.  I also tried jogging one day which really sucked.  But aside from those physical problems, I had a blast.  Very relaxing.  I got to see more wildlife with my own eyes instead of through the glass or the bars of a zoo.  A moose even came to visit our house! A MOOSE!

I'm not an outdoorsy type person so I was a bit apprehensive about going.  But that's just fucking stupid.  Getting away from everything was exactly what I needed.  The scenery was gorgeous.  The company was perfect.  I had an absolute blast.

PAX


No rest for the weary!  This coming weekend, I'll be at PAX Prime!  No real reason, just hanging out with my brother who is the true genius of the family.  I won't have a table or anything fancy, I'm going as an attendee for once!!  I think we're cosplaying as something as well.  It's gonna be nice to do a show and not have to worry about selling things.  So if you see me wandering around looking like an idiot, say hey!

GENE (from inside)



You must be truly sad, my friend.

Greg sits at the counter, frowning at his drink.

GREG



Oh?

GENE



Frowners come in here all the time. But they always leave with a smile.

PANEL 3

Gene holds up a fresh batch of bubble tea.

GENE



You're drinking one of my finest blends known to make even Hades smile, yet you've barely cracked a grin. What has broken you so?

PANEL 4

Greg, thoughtful.

GREG



There's a proverb. "If you love something, set it free. If it returns, it's yours forever. If it doesn't, it was never meant to be."

PANEL 5

Greg looks off.

Greg



Well, I did that first part. But I don't think she's coming back.

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!
