[Dragonmun Studios] A Whole Mess of Twos

Image
Happy 2022! All these twos must be affecting my brain because I've been two days late with my regularly scheduled content since the year started. 😅 I want to blame the cheese, but in truth it's because I've been overwhelmed with the move into my new house and the death of a dear friend . In fact, I've been using the move to dive mindlessly into physical labor and turn off my feelings - which bit me in the ass earlier this week when I realized that I hadn't even started on my Patreon update. I opened up photoshop to start coloring and about ten minutes in I couldn't see the screen through my tears. That moment of quiet allowed me to grieve like I should've in the first place and I guess I'm better now for it. I still miss Weatherly though. He was a staple of convention life for me - a friendly face that was always there to tell really bad jokes, make silly faces, and show off his latest shirt designs. He was the father of Aardvark Tees and if you'

[Dragonmun Studios] A (Next) Year In The Books

I never get tired of opening boxes like this. While I didn't technically "win" the NaNoWriMo again this year, I've been extremely successful with it. Sivoa: Zenith now has as many words as Sivoa: Sunrise and the ending is actually written. I just need to fill in some plot holes and write in some scene connectors before it's onto the editing phase. I forgot how exciting it is to be this close to the finish line! Heck, I'm feeling this on two fronts! The children's book I've been working on is approaching completion and is looking like it'll make its deadline of February! Y'all, this story is so stinking cute! It's about 5 little goblins just barely not failing at puppy sitting. Stylistically, it's like a hybrid storybook and comic, which helps to keep it timeless. 🥰 Being on the production side, I do not know what launch procedures for this book will look like, but if you want to be kept informed about release and ordering information

[Dragonmun Studios] This Old November

Image
As I sit here, writing this newsletter, I'm looking out the window to find that today November is definitely owning up to the first part of the above quote. To be fair though this is the first day this month where it's been rainy like this. Days 1-4 have been gorgeous by Florida standards… which is newsletter worthy in that the weather has allowed for the rebuilding of my roof to begin! This was the first domino of the various steps needed to be able to remodel and move into my new house, which will ultimately lead to my being able to finally build myself a proper studio! That, in turn, will allow me to get back to streaming on twitch again! Yay! For now I'm still working out of this bag (which turned out to be one of the best stretch-goal items we have ever gotten from Kickstarter 😅): This travel bag turned out to be super handy at Spooky Empire too! I'm not sure what I was expecting when I went up there to sign Auset Gypsy tarot cards at the REDFeather booth, but ta

[Dragonmun Studios] It's Festival Season!

and everyone is having them! It's festival season and because all walks of life had paused their events until now, there are just… so many! I've gotta say, going full-on back to in-person conventions has been a weird experience. To keep things short, Rose City Comic Con was so vigilant with making sure attendees had been vaccinated and wore masks, that it felt completely safe to be in that big hall, even with the huge crowds. Necronomicon , on the other hand, said that it was unreasonable to expect them to enforce any such policy, and as such, the convention was empty. I know that correlation does not equal causation, but numerous people replied to Necronomicon's facebook group, saying that they didn't feel safe to go because of health concerns... so they didn't. I guess the TLDR of this is that making the public feel safe seems to be a good business move. It's certainly becoming a factor in my decisions on which events I want to attend in the future. Yes, I kn
