Well what the heck, looks like I haven't poked my nose into this place for over a year. Maybe I should slowly get into the habit of uploading stuff here again, huh? A ton has happened since I last logged in, which is probably why DA kinda fell off my radar for a while. Basically this went down in my life since last year:

-I managed to graduate from university with a bachelor's degree in graphic design, hooray!

-Finished "A Redtail's Dream" (that comic I've previously been posting here). That's 556 pages of comic, made in about 2 years!

-Moved away from home and to Sweden pretty much right after graduating. So I'm living on my own and being an "adult" for the first time ever.

-Since people wanted a book version of "A Redtail's Dream" I ran a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo  last autumn to pay for the printing of it. It went incredibly well, about 1200 copies of the book were preordered via that AAGH! O_O

-Started my new and ongoing webcomic "Stand Still. Stay Silent" not too long after the print drive (so less than a year ago) and also started working on getting the aRTD book ready for print.

-During the first few months of this year I got the book printed (2000 copies in total), then spent like a month packing and shipping out the 1000+ books to the campaign backers. It was a crazy ordeal, I was so stressed out the whole spring! But all went well and everyone got their books, yay! Also drawing and updating SSSS during the whole time, of course.

Aaaand right now I'm pretty much a full time webcomic artist, living off the profits from selling the leftover aRTD books (btw I still have a couple hundred left, but I'm taking a break from selling them for a while). I'm currently updating "Stand Still. Stay Silent" at a pace of 5 pages every week, and in fact we're soon approaching a point where I can start getting book 1 of that ready.  


So yup, that's what's happened. Good things, basically, and lots and lots of work. I-I think I might be a professional artist now?

Anyway, I'll try to remember to upload stuff here again. :3

Hi Minna, I saw "The Smallest Hero" on this site, thought I'd ask if you knew about it, and they were allowed :)…
