A photo of the OSCP box sleeves! I actually cut some tabs on each side so it’s easy to remove the books (not pictured here).  The boxes are lovingly hand cut and glued by yours truly.  This time I relied on Colour Code Printing for the Risograph print, and they did a wonderful job. The colours are yellow, blue, and fluro orange.

The box along with OSCP6 is now released!  Get your copy at my webstore!

In other news, I have shipped out ALL ORDERS and PREORDERS made on the webstore.  Sorry for the backlog and the delay it took to get everything out.  This was the most intense shipping run as so much packaging was needed to insure everything would arrive safely. So far it seems that it is working. The last shipping run I did was this Friday - so I hope you get your packages soon! After this I realize I need to invest in a stamp with my address so I don’t injure my hand rewriting out the return address. orz

Also, I keep mentioning it… but come see me in Toronto 10/30 at The Central for the OSCP6 book launch.  I’ll be hanging out at Canzine on Saturday too - hovering around the Love Love Hill table. (I’m not officially tabling…).

Inktober week two was brush pen week!

There’s a lot of lovelovehill related events starting this week! I made a detailed list over here.

Did you know that I’m going to interviewing saicoink for her OSCP 6 book release in Toronto? Yes yes I am! I’ll ask her all about her favourite animal friends comic and process! Come check out the event and support saicoink's fabulous comics! Oct 30, 2014 @ 6:00pm, put it on yo calendars!!

Just a reminder that this little book launch thing is happening NEXT WEEK on 10/30 on THURSDAY. Please come - it will be awesome! O~O O~O *sweating and nervous*

An old Riso flyer from 2010 that I had printed in Osaka, back in the day.  This flyer is a reminder of how crazy I am, printing this and picking it up the day before I had to leave the country. I went and picked it up hours before my flight.  I took a train to the print shop.  It took 30 minutes both ways. I had to transfer between train lines of two different companies.  I had originally walked 2 hours to find the print shop the day before.  After I picked up my print outs and got back to the apartment, my taxi to the airport had arrived…  I was on a fool’s quest.  This is a reminder of my stupidity and foolishness.  Once I get an idea in my head I will want to finish it to the end even if I know it will fail. 
But I digress - I’ve been a bit under the weather ever since I got back from New York. Now this week, today, I will try to get back into the groove of being present in the world….Thank you to everyone who came out to the Bergen Street Comics event!  So many people came! And I moderated an impromptu conversation with Alabaster and Jane Mai.  People seemed to like it, but since there were no chairs for attendees, I didn’t want the talk to go for so long. 
There’s a lot more I want to write about the New York trip but that will be for another time.My next event will be in Toronto, thanks to the Beguiling.  It will be held on 10/30 at The Central at 6pm. Dirchansky from Love Love Hill will be interviewing me.  We have worked together on various projects along with the other ladies in LLH for many years now - so it should be an interesting conversation about process and self-publishing and comics.  The venue is all ages and free to attend, so please come! My worst nightmare would be… no one comes at all since it’s an event with just me and no other artist! *~* OSCP6 and the rest of the series will be for sale as well.  I will be around afterwards to sell and sign books and you can come and talk to me. O~O/ (Don’t be shy! I am shy too!)  Even if you already own the books, please come to the event if you are interested in learning more about me as an artist.
As for online orders - I tried to ship out as many US orders as I could when I was in the States but couldn’t send them all out since I ran out of materials and books.  The last of the orders will be packaged and sent out this week once I finish pasting the remaining box sleeves.  I apologize for the delay!  FYI, I send refunds for shipping if I was able to ship for cheaper than what you paid.  After two weeks from getting your book in the mail if you believe you are owed a refund and you have not received one, please feel free to contact me.  I try to make sure I cover everyone but this is a one person operation so there may be a miss from time to time.  I am currently backlogged and will try to get to everything by Friday.Thanks to everyone who has written on Twitter or here on Tumblr their response about OSCP6! I will reply one by one tomorrow. Thank you. Your support and kind words mean so much to me.

10/3 Book Launch at Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn!

Heading down to New York early tomorrow morning. I organized a book launch with Jane Mai and Alabaster and it’s finally happening this Friday 10/3 at Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn.  Event starts at 8pm - talk at 9pm.  It will be a conversation between all three of us and I guess I’m moderating??  If you have the time please come by and say hello. There will be refreshments and I will vandalize, if requested, any book you purchase.

I will have all copies of books in the OSCP series (lots of copies of OSCP5 and 6 - if you only buy two books just get these two instead of the entire series), pins, very very limited quantities of the Riso box (like under 10), and Object Memory.

The Facebook event page is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/360686467412052/

I decided I won’t do any shows next year except for maybe CAB if I get in. I might consider AN if I win the table lottery - if not I will just stay home as I am trying to reassess my life and career goals in the coming months.  This also means I won’t be tabling at TCAF in 2015, but you can see me this year on 10/30 at the Central thanks to the Beguiling.  More information here.

And hey, TCAF is a great show. If you draw comics you should consider going either as an exhibitor or as an attendee. My first time at TCAF was as an attendee and it was magical.  Sign up for a table here!

In other updates:  I have about half the orders shipped out.  I got the replacement pins in the mail only just recently so it had made a delay in getting the orders out. I will continue to mail things once I get back home from NY. I had hoped to prepare packages to send in the States, but I don’t think I can make that happen in 3 hours especially when I haven’t finished packing my luggage yet. :-(  Good night everyone!
