[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 as I get it, let me know by either responding to this email (I actually get responses to these in my inbox) or by subscribing to the form located here:

Speaking of books, 2022 officially marks 10 years of my being a business! To celebrate, I aim to make a portfolio book featuring every graphic design I've done in that time, as well as a large number of illustrations. In order to not stress myself out, release for this should be either at the end of 2022, or the start of 2023. 😁

This will absolutely contain more than what can be found in my (3-times rebooted 😩) portfolio page, as well as some of the stuff that I've only thus far posted to the members only discord channel. It will not contain sketches…

Which brings me to another topic. After I mail out this month's sketches, I will no longer have the stock to continue the "Sketch Closet" tier on Patreon. This is actually a good thing, since the whole reason for that was to eventually eliminate the massive pile of loose sketches that I had accumulated over the years and had a difficult time storing. This means that the Patreon will revert to a pay-what-you-want only option for special digital previews - unless someone has an idea for other limited-edition tangible materials…

I'm all ears there since I don't really make kitschy collectibles and don't default to designing for them mentally. What would you like to see? Again, feel free to reply here since I will receive it. 😉

If you already follow me on Patreon (it's free!), these monthly emails may wind up repeating in your inbox. If you'd like to stop receiving these newsletters,
