Background colors from the photoshop layer under the main linework, from a page out of book three of Glorkian Warrior.  The book is due out in March of 2016 and my deadline for finishing the artwork is November 1st 2014.  Book two has been in the bag since the same time last fall, and comes out March of 2015 (…for those who are curious about deadlines and release dates, there ya go).

I will be a guest at MICE this year, and I’ll be giving a cartooning workshop October 4 from 12:30 to 1:30:  What to draw when you don’t have any ideas.

Here are all the colors I used in my upcoming book, The Glorkian Warrior eats Adventure Pie.  I probably could’ve used even less… I see now that a few colors were unnecessary variations.

For a second I thought this song “Glorian - Warrior from the skies" was about GLORKIAN WARRIOR.  I’m just going to continue pretending that it really is.

Elf Cat episode 12.  And this brings the first chapter of Elf Cat to a close.

Honestly, serializing this strip on tumblr has been kinda weird feeling.  I can’t help but notice that except for the first couple of episodes, it really doesn’t get very many “hearts”.  I know I shouldn’t care how many hearts my strip gets… but tumblr is kinda geared to make you care.

On the other hand, I really love wearing my Elf Cat shirt.

That is so sweet!  Because every boy knows how much his mama loves Glorkian Warrior.

Even though they spelled Kochalka wrong, it’s super cool to see someone enjoying my Glorkian Warrior game.

ProTip:  Fungus: the Unbearable Rot of Being makes for excellent theatre when read aloud with a friend, and becomes doubly hilarious.
