Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 26, 2014, 12:43 PM

Alright guys, I said I'd make a new journal update when the print drive for the first book of "Stand Still. Stay Silent" is live, and here it is:
Untitled-1 by MinnaSundberg

And ere's a link to the campaign if the image link doesn't work: liiiink to the print drive. Join in you all!. The campaign's been up and running since Sunday evening, and it's actually already well over the funding goal. Which means while it's still a crowdfunding campaign it's now also basically a normal (but more fun) preorder thingie.

Anyway, it'll stay open and keep on going until the whole month is up, so you guys still have time to buy yourself a copy + possibly some extra goodies. There's also some stretch goals coming up ahead, like extra content in the book and free bookmarks for backers. We've already reached the first stretch goal, so the book will have 3 extra pages of comic that I won't publish online!

Supwr big thanks to everyone who's backed or is planning to do so! =^__^= And also those who help spreading the word. If enough people buy the book I'll be able to keep doing the comic full time (4-5 pages per week) next year too!

Heh, I guess this thing turned out as a kind of height chart of the cast. But mostly I just drew these because I needed something to make banner ads from to advertise the comic with. :P

From my webcomic "Stand Still. Stay Silent", which you can read right over here if you want to.

Another group shot of the main characters of "Stand Still. Stay Silent", this time complete with caaaat! Which can be hard to spot, it's lying on top of the engine thingie. :3

SSSS is my current running webcomic, which can be read right over here if you want to.<---

Hi duders! I haven't uploaded anything to DA in a million years, yeow! Oh, correction, one year.  But a lot can happen in a year, and basically what's happened is that I finished A Redtail's Dream and now have a new webcomic up and running, called "Stand Still. Stay Silent". And this is portrait of the main cast that's also like a year old, but aren't they cute?

Anyway, I'm updating 5 times a week (Monday-Friday) and we're currently nearing the end of chapter 3. So the story is still way, way in the beginning of its run, we haven't even met all the characters in the picture. But you can jump in and read it for free over here, liiiiink.<---

Be warned that there's some slight monster attack gore stuff going on in the newest pages if you're very young and scared of stuff like that, ahah. But welcome to the bunch if you feel like reading some kinda cute postapocalyptic comic in a Nordic setting. :3

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. Starting...today? :3

Hi Minna
Let me start by complimenting you on your beautiful art. I immediately became a fan.
I am a graphic designer working in Stellenbosch, South Africa. I have been working on a book, "So, you want to be a Hero", for one of my clients over the last few months. Innitially the book was only intended as an undercover induction manual for new employees. The concept has grown rapidly, to the point where all the "borrowed" artwork now has to be replaced with original/licensed artwork.
My client has asked me to approach you about doing the new illustrations for the book or alternatively licensing some of your existing artwork for use in the book. Would you be interested?
The easiest way to let me know is to contact me through my website, onelove.co.za, or post a reply to this comment.
Later
Carel

Hey, I am a huuge  fan of both your comics, and I was wondering, since I'm planing on starting a comic of my own.. If you had a few tips you could give me about how to start and what do you think it's important to know while maintaining and creating a web-comic? Thanks you so much and I'm a really big fan of your work! ovo)b

Hello, I was wondering if there is any way to buy a print of this wonderful art you did:
mentalfloss.com/article/59665/…
I would love to get a small print and frame it as a gift for someone... please let me know if there is any way! I don't want to just print it out from the web; I'd rather have a way to pay you for a nice high res version. You can email me at mim --at -- well -- dot -- com
