Every meeting should end with a bottle of sake!

SUPER ART FIGHT IDOL


Have you ever seen us on stage or clips of our show and thought to yourself, "Well if these fucking idiots can do this shit, so can I."  Well, you're right.  Anyone can do this shit.  But if you want to be on stage with us, we've got a process.  This Saturday, eight art fight hopefuls compete in the Super Art Fight Idol tournament for the chance to join our roster in 2014.  This group of hopefuls is the most talented and most prepared we've ever seen.  They even held a practice session this past weekend with our very own Charmcity Shinobi, Dann Malihom.

How do we determine the winners of an Art Fight Idol?  We do it reality style, with three judges.  Mikey "Baron Von Sexiful" Bracco, Nick "Ghostfreehood" DiFabbio, and myself will be doing our best Simon Cowell impressions yelling terribly unhelpful things at these wide eyed art fight newbies.  We will ultimately decide whose art reigns supreme.

But the best part is that this show is free to the public!  We're going from noon to 6pm at the Metro Gallery in Baltimore.  We're also raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation.  Members of our current roster will be on hand selling original pieces and other assorted merchandise all to benefit Make A Wish.

So if you're free this weekend, come on down for an exciting show and see some new blood battle it out for a chance to take us old ass art fighters in 2014!

Guh. Stick me with a spear. I'm done.

JULIE



What was all that yelling about when Zafirah and iRate left?

PANEL 3

Bodie slumps on the table.

BODIE



Nothing much. Just a potential hostile takeover.

JULIE



Brutal. Hmm… This calls for the good stuff.

PANEL 4

No dialog. Julie plops down two cups and a sake bottle with a kitsune spirit on the label.

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!
