And this is a lot of why I’ve been missing lately. Things are a bit more under control now, so posting should get back to a more regular schedule. Fingers crossed.

Octobriana.org is now live, though there’s not a lot to look at yet, other than the logo. I set it up primarily to showcase my own Octobriana projects, but lately people have started telling me about other Octobriana productions (I didn’t even know there were any other Octobriana productions currently), so I’m thinking of including something about them too.
I’m releasing the logo out into the world for anyone to use under a creative commons license. More about that at octobriana.org.
This is where I write about the comic I’m working on and tempt you with little tidbits of images of the work in progress. Because I don’t have the time or the artistic energy to devote to anything else right now.
Also, I think writing about the creative process and showing the development of ideas is interesting. If you don’t, best come back in a couple of weeks.
This is the first comic I’ve ever done that’s going to be published in full colour.
But I won’t be doing the colouring.
Because I suck at it.
Updates may be erratic over the next couple of weeks as I am busy working on the Womanthology project; an anthology graphic novel created entirely by women for Charity. Lots more information here.
What’s really exciting for me is that I’m working with comics legend Trina Robbins on a story featuring the irrepressible Octobriana!!
My drawing is still being more difficult than really seems necessary, so I decided to try something different and for the first time inked the whole thing digitally. It’s an interesting change, but I don’t think I’m ready to give up my beloved drawing board just yet.
EDIT: Anyone know where I can find costume reference for Russian evening dress circa 1916?
