October 7, 2003 - So, would anyone out there care to guess what arrived
on my doorstep this afternoon, scant days after my big blow-up rant about
them being so late?
October 2, 2003 - Okay, there's apparently a news issue I need to not
only cover, but SPECIFY. I do not have the comic books yet. I have no
fucking clue why the books aren't here yet, aside from the fact that I
must've hired gibbering, drooling wild dogs to print it for me. I was TOLD
that there would be about a three week turnaround time BACK IN THE MIDDLE OF
AUGUST, that's why I said the comics would be available in September, but I
still have yet to receive them, and every time I call, I either get the
answering service, or am brushed off with a 'they're just about ready to
go'. I can't mail out something I don't have, and whining won't make me
developed god-like powers to spontaneously generate them before me. I will
likely never use this printer again and, if I had the option of taking back
my several thousand dollars and taking my business somewhere else, you can
be damn sure I would, but since that's not an option, we all get to just
suck it up and let society fuck us up the ass once again. And quit bitching
about it, because I'm taking it a lot harder and deeper on this comic-book
fiasco than you are.
September 15, 2003 - Okay, so I was up at 4am to get ready for work
Sunday and my day pretty much kept coming nonstop after that until now, as I
write this, at midnight. I am very, very tired. As a result, there is not
yet a Monday comic, even though I have it scripted and laid out. Monday's
comic will be here on Tuesday, and I apologize for any inconvenience...
September 3, 2003 - So, the filler week continues. Sadly, I was unable
to attend anything at the con involving the ever-sexually appealing James
Marsters, due to scheduling conflicts (whoever the bloody hell scheduled our
panel opposite his band is going to walk with a limp if I ever find them),
or shear size of the crowds.
September 2, 2003 - So, DragonCon was a lot of fun, and it felt good to
be in the south again (I know... I'm scared too). The panel went really well
(we were standing-room only, baby) and all my fellow panelists were really
cool, although Kittyhawk is much tinier than I was expecting. I also got
yanked onto a second webcomics panel Sunday evening alongside webcomic
big-wigs like Bill Holbrook ("Kevin and Kell") and Jeff Darlington ("General
Protection Fault"), both of whom are really nice guys (like I'm going to
turn around and say they were complete assholes :p ). Jeff actually has a
picture of the second panel and ensuing dinner
on his website).
August 29, 2003 - Well, I'm off to Atlanta and DragonCon for my very first Venus-Envy-Related speaking engagement. If anyone else is going... you're probably already there and hence not checking this website. BUT, if you do somehow manage to check the website and are curious, then I will be speaking with Kittyhawk and a few other web artists on Saturday night, from 10 to 11:30. In the meantime, try not to send me too much mail, as I won't be answering anything or cleaning out my inbox until Tuesday. Everyone enjoy your weekends.
August 11, 2003 - Grrrr.... currently quite frustrated. I'm having scanner problems, or maybe it's problems with my USB drivers, or something. I have the comics drawn, I just can't scan them for final production and uploading. Hopefully this will be fixed soon; in the meantime, have patience (god knows one of us has to).
August 3, 2003 - Hahahaha! Sleep deprivation is fun once the walls start talking to you! Why am I loosing sleep, you ask? Why, nothing short of the very first issue of the Venus Envy Comic Book! It's funny as hell, with both classic strips and part one of an all-new VE miniseries, and it's winging it's way to the printers as we speak! More details Here
July 18, 2003 - Hey! National Recognition!
July 14, 2003 - Ugh....
July 6, 2003 - In case anybody's concerned: no, it (miraculously) didn't sting me, and I'm not allergic to bees anyway, so it wouldn't have been serious if it had (but still, ow... what a place to get stung). It just flew in my shirt and gave me a hell of a fright... but, it was a freakin' HUGE bee; You should've seen it! Must've been the size of, like, two bees... And mean! I'll bet he was a biker, back at the hive; he had this 'looking for trouble' kind of attitude about him.... Yeah.
June 30, 2003 - Okay, so I've been having some trouble with my FTP client the last week of so, hence updates have been delayed. Friday's comic is now up (so go and check it out), but to try and sort of confusion a little, I'm releasing Sunday's filler comic today, and Monday's comic tomorrow (Tuesday)... no real reason, I suppose. I just feel like lording my power over you. Bwahahaha!
June 23, 2003 - Okay, so first thing's first: There's been another
Gallery update for fanart, including a really cool poem in the fanfiction
section, so go check that out.
In other, other news: Venus Envy Magazine is almost complete as far as the creative process goes. The several pages of new comics are almost finished and the articles are written. All that's left is a nice cover design, layout, and then sending it off to the printers. Hopefully everything will be printed and ready for shipping and sales by the end of July.
June 14, 2003 - So, I come home from work Wednesday at four feeling
completely shagged, and thought to myself "It's been ages since I played
around with coloring anything on the computer; might be fun to finally make
a new banner for VE. The next thing I really remember I was elbows-deep in a
full website redesign, feeling a tad hungry. I look at the clock and
realize. "Shit... it's past midnight." I figured that, since I was having
trouble focusing my eyes, it might be a good time to go to bed (I was up at
5 that morning after all). But no rest for the weary! I woke up and got
right back to work. Every page has had at least a cosmetic change or two
made, so browse through. No doubt there are tons of bugs to be corrected,
but hey, I'm not getting graded for this. The Gallery has a ton of new
things (about time I updated with all the new fanart I've gotten these past
few weeks). There's also a whole new page: "Other", which is basically just
going to be rants and old news posts and whatever else strikes me as
interesting at the time.
