I'm not terribly social on purpose despite me getting up on stage on the regular and going to conventions and all that. Introverted extrovert? Is that a thing? So plugging in to listen to some dope tracks while grinding away in the office is sort of my default mode. But it's also fucking weird to get DMs from someone who's within arm's reach.

I mean, most of the time I'm working all alone here by myself. But on the rare occasions when I get into the office, I maybe plug in too soon. Ah well. And now I'm thinking about how cool it would be to have a cartooning coworking spot somewhere so I'd have fellow cartoonists to commiserate with! Yo, anyone in MD have a spot, hit me up!

BODIE

Whoa, easy there, tiger.


SHIN

Whu?

BODIE

It?s your first day and I know you want to hit the ground running and all.


But it?s too soon to block everything out and just tunnel in to your work. We haven?t even talked about what you?re going to be doing with us.

ALLY

We don?t really plug in unless it?s crunch time. Not really a policy or anything. Actually, I don?t think we?ve ever talked about policies or anything like that. But it?s just weird dm?ing someone sitting right next to you.


SHIN

Yeah. I guess. I guess that is really weird, isn?t it.

====


ALLY

Sounds like this is something you?ve experienced?


SHIN

The last place I worked at. Now that I think back on it, they were weird.

====


SHIN

They insisted on blasting this white noise crap through speakers in the ceiling. Something about concentration or productivity or some crap someone went to a seminar for.

====


SHINE

I had to plug in as soon as I stepped in the door just to keep my thoughts in my brain meats.

KANE

WHITE?NOISE?


ALLY

SERENITY NOW! SERENITY NOW!!!

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!

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!
