Happy holidays! Still alive over here. I’ve been working on an 8-page mini-comic for the past couple months, but I’m starting on the thumbnails for the next set of pages for Ruby Red. Granted, it’ll still be a while before the next installment sees the light of day, but just know that I have not forsaken my webcomic.
If you’re missing Naoko and/or my art, I drew a fun picture of Naoko for #inktober, along with some other fun drawings that you can see on my Instagram. If that’s not enough for you, you can buy prints of my art and copies of Ruby Red over at my SquareUp store (each of which would make a wonderful gift, by the way). If still you are not satisfied, then get over it or invent a time machine (and share the time machine with me).
I’ve got a surprise one-day convention this weekend! Mochi-Day in Liberty, SC! Admission is just $5, so really, how can you go wrong? I’ll have the usual prints, books, and buttons, and I will be doing commissions. I will be sharing a table with fellow artist Alicia! See you there!
Today’s comic is technically a rearranged version of the cover to issue #7. I’m going to work on the planning stages of Chapter Two (book two? whatever) for a while so that once I start updating, I can get through the whole chapter without another hiatus. The Woman in Red has been a wild ride since its start, but I’ve learned a lot so far. I’m really excited for what strange new horrible frustrating challenges the next four chapters will bring.
If you’re reading this but for some reason haven’t read the comic yet, go! Here’s the first page!
Keep up with me on facebook – deviantart – twitter – tumblr – instagram to see when the comic comes back, and other things I do. If none of those sound appealing, shoot me an email here and I’ll add you to a list to be notified when Ruby Red updates again. Also check out my portfolio website!
And with today’s update, the mini-comic about Ramona’s crushing fear of commitment comes to a close. Hurrah! Next week you’ll either get the chapter image for chapter 2 or an end-chapter illustration of the characters, I haven’t decided yet. It’ll be a fun surprise.
