After months of struggling there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Squarriors issue 5 got a nice big two-paged ad in Previews magazine. Look at this thing~!




Both Scorch and Squarriors got on the featured items list and I was part of their "Women in Comics" mini interview section. I am all over PREVIEWSworld magazine this month. That's huge for an indie creator!
(Yes, they mixed up my bio with Kate or Die! but I'll take it!)
This comes as a sigh of relief after months of just being generally miserable about my financial struggles. Devils Due Ent (DDE) had planned to do a kickstarter for the Squarriors trade paperback back in October. Those plans fell through which caused a gap in production of the next issue. Every time they do a kickstarter, whatever money is left over after production and shipping costs, Ash and I get some of that to help pay our living expenses (like when I sell an original art page). This usually offsets our bills between our normal quarterly paychecks. Unfortunately, without the kickstarter and a diminished paycheck I ended up going months unable to work on my projects. I was picking up freelance work just to cover our arses! Which forced us to push back the release date on issue 5 because I literally could not afford to work on it. (I never want to go through that again.)

So here we are, March, Squarriors is making a come back and that kickstarter DDE had planned months ago is finally happening (maybe). If you haven't gotten your hands on the TPB of Squarriors yet you're gonna want this. DDE is doing an oversized hardcover version with an exclusive bloody pawprint cover. This thing is meant to be on your coffee table, disturbing your guests. :heart:

*note, the KS has been delayed for another week.



At long last, I'm crawling out of the deep hole these last five months have been. I'm working on finishing up issue 5, along with a handful of commissions. ...of course I have do this while I'm sick! 'Cause why would anything ever be easy? ;)

btw, this is my all-time favorite meme (apply it to your life):

well I just ordered the TPB of Squarriors into Canada.

Thanks for talking to me at the Calgary Comic Expo. I sure hope that the trip was beneficial to you and Ash and that it didn't throw your budget off too much.

Now I want to see Watership Down and Rats of NIMH again because of your artwork.
