Crazy times!

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 15, 2015, 5:12 AM


Soooo....At the start of this year, I had submitted Alex Rider: Scorpia, had a little wait to go until starting on Ark Angel, and threw lots of time (thanks to my wonderful Patrons!) at BREAKS; the webcomic I write and draw with :iconrattsu:. Things were relatively peaceful, if a little uncertain in terms of work schedule. And then, much like Neo Tokyo, they e.x.p.l.o.d.e.d! ^_~ So what's going on then?

I was announced as filling in for three issues on the amazing Jem & the Holograms for IDW. Written by Kelly Thompson and drawn by :iconmooncalfe:, this series is so incredible and I'm just blown away to be part of it! <3

I was hired by Square Enix (OMG!!) to illustrate a series of promotional images attached to the Life is Strange game series. I LOVE this game! And I LOVE square, so eeee!

I drew a Wonder Woman story for DC! Written by the amazing Barbara Randall Kesel, getting to draw such an iconic character was pretty amazing. It's out in August.

And then the big news from SDCC was that George Mann and I are teaming up to create a brand new mini series for the Eighth Doctor! Isn't this cover just gorgeus? Alice Zhang is incredible! <3
So - 2015 has turned out to be the year that all my fangirl dreams have come true. Square, Jem, Wonder Woman and Doctor Who? Not to mention our little webcomic picking up some pretty amazing readers and patreon backers...Pinch me! ^_^</b></b>

I'm afraid not. I'd love to do more, but I was signed for three books and there's been no news on more just yet.

Hi Cherry-Lane. We definitely want to do the next Avalon Chronicles book, and thanks so much for asking about it! ^_^
No, it's not released yet, and the last chat I had with Oni (a little while back now) was about ways we could get more eyes on the title so that we can justify moving forward. The issue at the moment is that, as much as we all love it, we don't really get paid for it. '^_^ It's a tricky one. I work for free on titles like BREAKS, but BREAKS is mine and Malin's own story, so I see it as a hobby with patreon backing. But Avalaon is very much Nunzio and Christina's baby, even though I've been very much made a part of the team and have contributed towards the story. Right now, as you can probably see, I just don't have time enough in the world to earn money, make my hobby comic AND work on another title for free. ;_; But we haven't abandoned it. Just as I one day want to return to Dragon Heir, we really want to complete Aeslin's story! When schedule and finances allow, we will! x

I'm glad you will do a Doctor Who mini comic series I just hop it will be released in America? In fact I planning to write a fanfic based on my own idea of  the 13th Doctor. He's has an Irish accent because I love their accents. As well being a ginger finally.
