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

Oh grand you have deviantart as well.

Just wanted to drop by and say love both yer comics, since norse and suomenusko themes/faiths are rarely touched on by popular media!

On top of that, you do horror extremely well, balancing the "unknown" with graphics and mental terrors. Hell I haven't felt this affected since I read www.scp-wiki.net/scp-093

SSSS is a great mix of "The Thing", "Dead Space" (1), Silent Hill and "Röde Orm". It shares my number one spot as a all-time favorite webcomic!

You should consider creating a www.patreon.com/ since tons of other artists who produce equal (or less) quality material at much slower rates still garner tons of monetary support. And no I'm in no way affiliated with the site, I've just noticed a lot of web-comics use it nowdays (such as Lackadaisy) and your amazing work would guaranteedly gain support.

Either way, thanks for your comics and good luck in the future!

Your art is amazing and your colours are beautiful and I want to use every splashpage of SSSS as my desktop background and a poster version on my wall... You inspire me big time!

Atch!  I recently got into your comics and missed both this and Redtail's drives.  Is it still possible to buy books?

Oh wow! I remember seeing your fire gryphon several years ago..! It's always interesting to find the artist who made a piece that you loved.

Your work is so inspiring!:iconfeelingfreeplz:

I finished reading A Redtail's Dream a couple months ago and put off telling you.. I LOVED IT!! It was so well made, thought out and presented *_* I'm in love with your style and the story was just so cute and emotional!! I'll start reading  SSSS sometime soon but I needed to tell you, ARD became one of my all time favorite comics and I'm going to make some fanart of it.. one day >w>
