Hey guys! I wanted to do a journal about upcoming events and projects that I'm involved. If you've been following me on instagram
you know I've been juggling several different projects over this summer, so if there's some confusion as to what's coming next I wanted to clear that up in this journal.
So as most of you now know, I'm going to be tabling at a anime con called Waku Waku NYC
next weekend with
in Brooklyn, NY. This will be the first time I'm tabling at an official event like this so I'm really excited! (my friend I'm tabling with on the other hand is a veteran to it, haha). We'll be at booth 513 called "Sakura Keiko Art," so if you're going make sure to come visit us! I'll be selling the first print run of A Maid Story
, my new manga at that event. If you're able to come, you'll be able to get one of the first copies made! I'll also be selling the con exclusive print versions of Reverse Rebellion
. If you're going to Waku Waku make sure to stop by at our table!
And with that, here are the project updates with what I'm currently working on:
A Maid Story:
So as mentioned before, A Maid Story is my new original manga, and the first print run will be sold at Waku Waku NYC. After that I am going to take preorders for the second print run which I will sell online through DA. Once preorders are open I'll make sure to post a picture of the printed manga volumes along with info, similar to what I did with The Witch House.
Pokemon Symphonic Horizon:
This is a manga
I've been working on as a commission for
. It's a manga based off of an original game he is creating set in the Pokemon universe. I've posted the first three pages on here, and we plan to have six pages in total for preview. I may not be able to do them now with the new semester of college coming up for me, but once I get to work on that more I'll make sure to post on here. (For more info about the game and it's progress, visit the group's page here:
Cat girl manga:
For those of you who have been following me on instagram/tumblr, you've seen me posting preview pics of this project
I'm working on for awhile now. I was working on and have now finished a six page colored comic for the School of Visual Art's cartooning magazine called "Ink." My friend is an editor and asked me to do a submission, so that's what I've been doing. This comic will be featured in the Fall 2015 issue, so once that's out I'm going to ask for permission to post it online. If I get the OK I will begin posting that sometime in September.
"Faith Hope Love" revamp images:
Ha...haha. OTZ okay, so awhile ago I posted this line art.
AS some of you recognized, it was a revamped version of my old popular illustration "Faith." I had plans of redrawing the whole "Faith, Hope, Love" series this summer mostly because I'm lacking in digital illustration, but with the three projects listed above I just didn't get the chance to do them. Hopefully another opportunity will present itself to me in the future so I can continue them, but for now I'm going to have to leave it at that. So sorry about that *bows*
This is part of a collab I worked on. More info coming this week.
This is part of a HUGE secret project I've been working on all summer which I'm so excited to reveal to you guys, because it's something I've been wanting to do for so long. Once again, more info coming this week!
So I guess this will be an exciting week because I'll be able to unveil a lot of these long-term projects I've been working really hard on. I hope you guys will enjoy them, and look forward to them! And if you'd like, please pray for the success of Sakura Keiko Art at Waku Waku NYC this weekend. Thanks so much, and God bless! <3
