I kind of really want Dumpling Day to be a thing.  How do I make this happen?!  I envision a sort of food festival where restaurants bring their finest dumplings for all to enjoy.  And not just the Chinese dumplings.  I'm thinking of all sorts of dumpling like foods like pirogi, ravioli, gyoza, those weird things in the chicken soup that you can get at the Cracker Barel.  A whole big dumpling food fest!

Goddamn, now I'm hungry.

The best way to get ground meat is to do it yourself!

PANEL 1

Bodie ties on a headband.  In the background, Ally fixes Kane's apron.

KANE



Ready for dumpling domination!

BODIE



So where does dumpling day come from?

PANEL 2

Flashback. Julie furiously chops a piece of meat.

I was demonstrating my TWIN WIND BLADE meat chopping technique for the web show. Ended up with a whole mess of ground meat.

PANEL 3

Julie holds up a dumpling. Zafirah (Killer Queen) strokes her chin and grins.

Dumplings were the obvious solution. Then Zafirah thought it'd be fun to make an event of some kind to promote the restaurant and the show.

PANEL 4

Julie raises a fist.

JULIE



So today is dumpling day! And if it goes well tonight, we'll try to make it a big annual holiday.

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!

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!
