New pages are up! I hope I didn’t offend anyone with my Comic Sans article from last week. It’s all in good fun.

Busy Busy Busy!

I don’t know how other webcomic people do it but making a webcomic and getting it in print is a ton of work. I feel like I’m so slow compared to everyone else that I wonder what I’m doing wrong.

I am pretty excited to announce that I finished updating all the pages with my editor’s notes and fixed some art problems. Last week I started drawing 4 extra pages that are only going to be in the printed book and I’m really happy with the direction they are going. I promise I’ll show some sketches later but the only way to see the finished version will be in the book. Sorry. I gotta leave something just for the book.

We are still on schedule though. The main things I need to finish are the 4 extra pages and finalize the cover art. I also need to prepare several files for Christopher (the book designer) and then it’s all about locking in the final designs of the whole book to send to the printer.

This reminds me, I really need to make a FAQ’s page on this site. A friend of mine who is a big time sales guy and trains people how to effectively market your stuff told me that you need a FAQ’s page on your site so that anyone in the media can easily find out about you without digging to hard. It makes sense too. I can’t expect someone to want to write an article about reMIND if I don’t clearly present what I’m about on this site. It’s not like they are going to read through a years worth of posts to find out if reMIND is worth writing about. So, I need to add that to my to-do list. I’ll let you know when it’s up.

Well, Christmas is fast approaching and I want to give you all a fair warning that I wont be posting any new pages on Monday the 27th of December or Monday the 3rd of January while I take my holiday break. Don’t worry, I still plan on posting stuff for those days so please come back and say hi. I’m also going to do an experiment in January that I’m curious to see how it goes. So make sure and check out reMINDblog over Christmas break so you don’t miss anything.

I’m going to switch gears now. For the next little while, I’ll be randomly sharing about friends I’ve made this last year while blogging and webcomic(ing). To start off with I’ll talk about the first webcomic I’ve ever read.

Toilet Genie

I meet Cari Corene at the Comic-Con this year after reading her online comic called Toilet Genie. Back when I started researching if I should put reMIND online I scanned the internet and Toilet Genie was the first one that I actually read because the art stood out and the idea was charming.

Cari is super sweet in person and I have been pulling for her and her book for a while now. I just found out that she launched a Kickstarter campaign last week and I wanted to send some new eyes her way. Many of the pages of her second chapter are beautifully watercolored in ways that very few comic artists are doing these days. I mean, it’s just to easy to do it all in the computer. But the time she put into this is really paying off so check out her Kickstarter video and see if you might be interested in pledging to fund another artist’s dreams. It looks like she already hit her Kickstarter goal but she really needs around $3000 to cover all the printing without using money from her bank account.
