SITE TWEAKS!! OTHER STUFF!!!

Hey guess what we have now?

Guess what we somehow haven’t had since the launch of the comic 5 entire years ago?

AN ACTUALLY USEFUL ARCHIVE PAGE!!!

In preparation for the start of Book Two very soon, the Archive link is now broken down into Book One: Body [clay], Book Two: Spirit [fire], and Book Three: Soul [blood]. Everything that’s been published so far is tidily categorised under Book One, with thumbnails and short summaries for each chapter as well as info on the mediums used in the artwork. Handy!

In less cool news, I’m unfortunately not going to be able to make the conventions I’d planned for this year — including my all time favourite, Thought Bubble. It’s just not working out with the recent move and my new job, and I’d rather spend the time focused on making new work for the rest of 2017. Don’t worry, though! I still love coming out for cons and it’s something I hope to get back to in 2018 once everything’s more settled.

More news soon, kiss kiss.

edit: OH YEAH I got rid of ads from the site too. I’ve always hated having them, and they honestly don’t bring in enough revenue to justify themselves in 2017. That DOES mean I’m more reliant than ever on print sales and donations to keep the site going, so if you’re at all inclined to throw some support my way I’d deeply appreciate it. Either way, no more ad boxes, just content.

Fan Art

So a couple of things have jogged around a bit in the site layout — but if you look under the ‘Comic’ tab at the top, you can now check out all the gorgeous Mythos FAN ART I’ve received over the last couple of years! If you want to add to it (or if you drew something for the comic that I couldn’t find on my external drive), drop me a line. I loooove seeing other people’s interpretations of all these weirdo characters.

Also, if you’ve been waiting for updates to the latest chapter, don’t worry! I just finished the last of my con preparation (like just now, literally 20 minutes ago), so there should be a page or two up this week to make up for all the stops and starts. It’s hard work doing all this ‘running a business’ stuff yourself, I tell ya what.

It’s fireworks night and things keep exploding in the back garden. My toes are cold. Uhhh and that’s all for now probably.

PEACE.

More Conventions, More Site Updates, More, More, More!

Holy moly it’s been forever since I updated this blog! This is why I’m always hassling for folks to follow me on tumblr or twitter — that’s where all the fresh hot happening news goes down. Regardless, it’s about time for a round up of the many, many things that have been going on for me and the comic this year.

#1 New Countershot members!

Back in August we rounded out our team with the addition of Kate Ashwin (Widdershins), Robin Hoelzemann (Curia Regis), and Lily Hoyda (Bad Reputation, Misery Chick). You can see ’em all up at the top there in our badass link carousel. And if you haven’t checked out any of those comics yet, get on it! Seriously, these are some of the nicest, kindest, most talented and hardworking cartoonists I know, and I’m thrilled to be working with them. Robin’s even taken over our Countershot Press twitter account, making sure it stays up to the minute with news and bonus content from all of us.

#2 Galpalendar!

Hot on the heels of last year’s MANCALENDAR, we’re releasing another collaborative wallpiece for 2016 — this one themed entirely around women and female relationships. We’ve got the whole Countershot crew in there, plus exciting guest pieces from Kathleen Jacques (Band vs Band), Ariel Ries (Witchy), and Allison Shabet (Dead Winter). I don’t mind telling you, this year’s Mythos piece is RIDDLED with plot secrets, so sprint to storenvy right now to grab yours if mysterious symbolism is your thing. Officially preorders just ended, but from me to you, if you’re quick, you might just get in under the wire!

#3 Conventions, Conventions, Conventions!

I’m typing this right now from under a quilt fortress, where I’ve spent the week recovering from a dreadful post-convention cold. MCM London was a ton of fun, and I was privileged enough to table side by side with Robin and Kate of Countershot fame the whole weekend. We even got to say hi to Ariel Ries and grab a quick photo op!

It was a heck of a show, and I made out pretty well — so you can expect to see me back in May (fingers crossed), and perhaps at MCM Manchester if things work out. I will also be appearing at Thought Bubble in a couple of weeks, so keep your eyes peeled if you’re in the Leeds vicinity!

#4 New Looks, New Books?

As you can see, the site’s had a bit of a tweak once again. Over the next year I will be gradually broadening the contents to cover my illustration and proofreading business as well. Don’t worry, though! My comics will always be top priority.

Speaking of which, keep an eye out at Thought Bubble if you enjoyed Chapter 10: Under the Skin. I’ll be printing that story up as a new mini (a real one this time, no more 8-folds!) We’re closing in on the end of Volume One, which means that I’ll be kicking into high gear in 2016 to raise money for the first printed collection. Aaaa! Aaaaaa! I’m excited, at least.

That’s about all for the moment, but I will do my best to stay more conversational around here over the next few months. Otherwise, you all know where to find me.

Kiss kiss!
