Just doing a quick "I'm not dead yet" post.

At the moment I am full of antibiotics, prednisone, and tube of alchemy impersonating a facial lotion. Yeah, allergies this summer are bad. But I'm slowly regaining functionality.

Alas - it'll still be a while before I can get the next page of Ebin & May done. Have been slowly poking at it, but nothing I can post as of yet.

For Radio work, however, I've got all of Cantrip, the new book by Shon Howell and Phil Gibson, ready to go. Just waiting on the proof copy from the printers now. Will probably spend a day getting BMI #2 ready and posted to ComiXology. Then it's onto lettering the last book of Liberty From Hell for Comics Plus.

On a personal note - I've been spending that last couple of days occasionally poking at Zazzle again. Mostly in setting Baron up his own store front (http://www.zazzle.com/engel_werks) and moving his products from store to his. It'll be a while for everything to move over as well as setting up new prints there. But it's a start.

I know there's more, but that's all I can think about for now. Back to the slow grind!

Liberty from Hell #6 (digital) - needs cover. interior finished and in proofing stage
Cantrip GN - Starting compile since I now have the ISBN

Still so busy I can't see if I'm coming or going.

Have finally recovered from this years super nasty, highly virulent, and much lingering Flu. Still coughing a bit with some post-nasal drip, and sleeping much too much, but otherwise finally back to work.

One of the things I am supper behind on is the lettering and doing new covers for the digital version of Liberty from Hell. But man, it's looking so nice! Currently in the middle of issue 4 (of 6) and trying really hard for it to get out the door to hit the Comics Plus App at the end of the month.

Oh and Baron and I are officially tieing the knot this Thursday (Valentine's Day). We're having a small tiny ceremony up in the Gold Country (Sonora, CA) with much help from my parents. We were planing to just quietly go to a Judge here in Silicon Valley but beyond getting the marriage license, the bureaucracy of Santa Clara County defeated us. Mom-God to the rescue! One of her and Dad's bowling partners has a non-denominational license to marry folks, and he's graciously said he'd perform the ceremony. So we're doing it up there in a park next to the courthouse (subject to change).

At the moment I'm writing this as I'm waiting for the very bouncy [livejournal.com profile] khromat to swing by and we'll go dress shopping, such as it is. No, we're not getting an uber wedding dress. Not with a budget of $50.00. I would feel so outta place in one of those formal things. Just something casual and white so I'm not standing in-front of our "minister" wearing BDU's and a geeky T-shirt. See, even I have some social morals about dress-code. ^.^

Needless to say, with everything going on, Ebin & May is going to be delayed a bit longer. Grumph! Everything is happening at once again. But that's life for you. ^.^

Liberty from Hell part 6 pg 3
by *SmudgeDragon on deviantART

Andre and Sebastian travel onward towards winter camp. They've got a long road ahead of them.

Doing a bit of scanning for my old story 'Liberty from Hell' for it's new digital release and I came across this page. I don't know why, but I have always been inordinately fond of this page, so I though I would share.

Liberty from Hell #2 - Digital Edition cover by *SmudgeDragon on deviantART

Andre's exercising his lungs again, I see.

New cover for the digital edition of Liberty from hell, which just went live on Comics Plus app today. Wrap around covers seems to be the "thing" for Liberty at the moment, despite there being no physical book to wrap around in. Hurmm.

Watercolor on paper, 15" x 11"

Liberty from Hell Digital Edition cover 1

The Demon Phalloide's back for a little more fun, now on your mobile devices. Completely rescanned and released in it's original sepia tone colors with a new cover, Christina "Smudge" Hanson's fan favorite tale of war and love in the dark ages is now available on the Comics Plus app.

After the fall of the Roman Empire, during the time of the Idle Kings, the vice demon Phalloide was unwittingly let loose onto the mortal world. He took to his liberty from Hell like a sailor on shore-leave- until he found out that he'd just been conscripted! Now, a soldier in Rook's Claw, a mercenary company, the world's first conscientious objector is finding things on the mortal plane are not entirely black and white. Things only get more complicated for poor Phalloide when the angel Azeal shows up to make him a most tempting offer- if he can keep his libido in check and pass a simple test! Witty and fun historical comedy with a magical twist.

$0.99 - 32 pages, color cover, sepia tone interior, mature readers.

Sebastian Spreads His Wings
by *SmudgeDragon on deviantART

Now if I can just get the PDF to compile correctly I can get this thing off my docket and back to work on Ebin & May.
smudgedragon: watercolor of dragon cleaning its magic pearl (Default)
So - I got the surprise of my life recently. Some time ago, one of the machines that holds a lot of our household backups died. We have been recovering a lot of files and such so I though everything was fine.

But in compiling the Ebin and May Graphic Novel, I found that one of the chapters working files were missing. I got real lucky and found print ready files else wear on my harddrive in a different folder I had complied just for doing the GN, else they would have been gone too.

And today - I found all my working files for Liberty from Hell gone as well. This really craps me out because I was hoping to reprocess them into their original sepia toned washes for web/Digital Download. But the shear thought of completely recreating the digital files from scratch I think is more work than it's worth.

Lesson learned - be more anal about backups of my projects.

*grumph*

Sebastian-Phalloide portrait by ~SmudgeDragon on deviantART

Told you Phall wanted out of his amphora again.

Sebastian (possessed by Phalloide) on patrol on the outskirts of camp. Though it's obvious his mind is not looking outwards for dangers, but instead looking at ... something, or should I say someone else. Heh. Better hope Andre doesn't catch you, Phall. ^.~
