 If you happen to live in either Toronto or Tokyo, I implore you to visit these fine comic establishments.

The Beguiling:
601 Markham St, Toronto, ON M6G 2L7

Taco Che:

東京都中野区中野5-52-15 中野ブロードウェイ3F

Tokyo, Nakano-ku, Nakano 5-52-15 Nakano Broadway 3rd Floor

Not only do they have Hellspawn Madoka in stock but other amazing one-of-a-kind comics as well. Honestly, the people running both places know their shit and that deserves support.

Sorry for the absence! I’ve been hard at work on Code Monkey Save World and preparing for Comitia 106 that I haven’t had a chance to update here much. Comitia on Sunday was great. It was really nice to be behind a table again shaking hands and seeing friends. Although, selling books directly to customers was a very new and, at times, stressful experience but one I aim to do again in February for the next con. Hopefully with a sequel to my doujinshi Hellspawn Madoka.

Speaking of which, I’ve had lots of interest from overseas friends and fans about acquiring the book, so I will be taking orders through PayPal. I’ve priced them at $10 USD/CAD in order to cover shipping costs and I will sign every copy. The book includes 19 pages of art, sequenced into a loose story with an extra afterword page and a cover for a total of 24 pages. So, if you are interested, please PayPal $10 to <tmiyazawa@hotmail.com> and provide a mailing address. I will be shipping via airmail so you should receive them in 3-6 business days.

Some preview pages:

For people in Japan, please stay tuned. I am currently trying to get them into doujinshi stores.

Thank you and I will try to post more often!

Our Kickstarter is funded! A big THANK YOU to all who backed us. Can’t wait to get started on this. The above image is from one of our stretch goals: an illustrated children’s book based on Jonathan Coulton’s The Princess Who Saved Herself. Stoked!

Not that it makes much of a difference to me but I did manage to get out of the city for some R&R. The weather’s been great after this unusually long cold spring. In the midst of juggling a bunch of projects still while waiting on approvals or go-aheads on others. Our Code Monkey kickstarter is still going strong with another major announcement due in the next day or two so keep your eyes on that.

In the meantime, some new Madoka art:

Aside from freelance work, I’ve been ironing out the image series for this. It will probably end up being a collection of about 25 pieces. Need to get a bunch of reference photos this week. Once it’s done, I’ll collect it on my own and find a cheap printer. Kinda excited.

The response to our little Kickstarter project has been overwhelming. Kudos! I never believed we’d be getting such a response. Greg has been busy adding more pledge goals and sweet bonuses that if you haven’t visited the site in a few days, it would be worth your while to take a look. More exciting updates are on the way!

Yes, it is. Aside from inking pages, doing layouts and starting other freelance work, I’ve been chipping away at this pet project of mine; finally titled “Makai no Madoka” or Hellspawn Madoka. I spent all morning cooking up the logo. lol

The image itself is finally getting to a point where I’m happy with the results. I’ve been testing and finding the right balance between the amount of detail and pencil look for the past couple of weeks. There’s still room for improvement but stay tuned for more images as this progresses.

Anyway, hope you like it.

35 today. I should be happy but a dude I used to drink with a few years ago suddenly passed away yesterday. He was the same age as me. I don’t know the details but its turned into a reflective day instead of a celebratory one. Birth and death come just as easily as the other doesn’t it. I haven’t had much experience with this type of loss but I take it as a sign to take the time to appreciate everything and everyone.

On the work front, I’m inking pages, waiting for e-mails and taking ref photos. Might go out today for more pics and to just walk off my depression :p

More design work for that thing below:

So, our little Kickstarter project reached it’s goal TWICE OVER. IN 2 DAYS. Amazing. I’m overwhelmed at the response and can’t wait to start drawing it. I won’t let you guys down. Greg is busy adding perks and target bonuses so please keep your eye on the site.

In other news, after about 2 years of doing nothing but layouts for publishers, I’ve taken a break from that to actually draw things. I know. Shocking. There are a few things that will be announced soon but, in the meantime, something personal and still very raw to show you.

Trying to utilize what I learned during my webcomic days and the architecture around my place. I’ve always felt my backgrounds stink so it’s been a good way to brush up on that. This will eventually become part of a series of images to tell a short story but I’m still pondering and working out the details.
