Wheeww, this city is hot in July. My fan is stationed next to my desk, and it kept moving my page when I was inking the panel borders. I turned it off, and by the time I was done I was all gross and sweaty. Blecch. No good, take me somewhere I can wear snazzy boots and coats all the time. Northern CA? Colorado? Maine? Canada. Definitely Canada. I’ve been a little in love with Toronto ever since TCAF this year.
See you next weak.
Holy good god, it’s been too long. Hope you all are swell (and still reading…?) A lot has changed in the month I’ve been away, but the good news is that I took the time to write Post-Hoc, as well as a ton of other projects. I have a fancy, personal website now: (www.wyethyates.com), where you can see my big project, The Other Gang. Post-Hoc is still my baby, too. I’m excited to tell the next chunk of the story. See you next week!
I have to miss this week’s update. I apologize, as updates have been spotty for months. Between completing my assignments (all comics and illustration) at college, graduating from college, finding work, finding a new place to live, and life as an independent force continually getting in my way, I’ve been a little preoccupied. I love drawing Post-Hoc, but I keep needing to put it on the backburner. It’s driving me crazy.
I have a job with a tight deadline that I got this morning, so I have to miss tomorrow. I’ll try to get a page up this weekend, although I am moving to my new apartment. If I can update, it’ll probably be on sunday. I’ll blast about it on my twitter as well as on my art blog. So keep a weather eye out on those two, and maybe we can work something out. But please, stay tuned. I know it’s hard with updates so irregular. We’re working on it, I promise.
Updating a little bit early, because it’s done and I’m excited about it! I spent the weekend in Toronto at TCAF with friends Peter Schmidt, Lily Padula, and Kate Drwecka (who was kind enough to let us crash at her place outside the city). I keep waking up in the middle of the night from dreams of being at Beguiling and having a few grand to spare in my pocket. Never made it into Honest Ed’s, malheureusement.
In other con news, I’m saddened today to hear that BCGF is no more. It was a really amazing gathering of great artists. We’ll have to all get together and start a new Brooklyn-based indie convention then, eh?
Hope all’s well on your end of the screen. See you next week.
Whew. Okay. So I’m done with college, and with my other comic, which means I’ll get to spend more time on Post-Hoc. I can assure you all that we won’t be missing weeks anytime soon. This is a most uncertain time in my life, sticking my neck out and taking my first steps into the void, but I’ll keep at this ol’ clunker until it’s done. Thanks for hanging in there!
