On February 19th, my fiance’s mom lost her 6-month battle with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Some of you have met him at conventions we’ve attended together. I dropped everything to fly to be with him and his family, and that’s the reason why I haven’t been updating. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts, and learn about this disease/donate to cancer research in her memory.
See you all again in April, and thanks for the support.
2015 Art Resolutions
January 30, 2015
Curious what I have planned for this year? Click here to find out!
January 29, 2015
Yeah! My niece was born the beginning of this year, and we've all been busy with baby duty, helping the new parents so they can get some sleep.
On other news, you must be wondering why my updating schedule has gone off a cliff recently...... bah, for all of 2014. Overall 2014 was an eclectic year. I can't say it was the best nor it was the worst, but it was full of opposites.
Alan's death on January (my 15 year old three-legged cat) affected me quite a bit. Then when I traveled I got a serious ear infection that made me stop hearing from an ear until I got back home and got it healed...
Good things also happened like being able to color for IDW's Littlest Pet Shop, my sister being pregnant, going to Canada for the first time and meet again with Gisèle, Dave and Marc, (the World Cup lol), having run a very succesfull Kickstarter for Ma3's Vol 6...
And there are things (health wise) that are happening that I prefer to respect the privacy of those affected, but that make me have to be there for support, and obviously that takes a toll on anyone. Due to stress (so much stress) I ended up being diagnosed with osteocondritis esternocostal (I don't know the English term for this and Wikipedia doesn't help, but basically it's chest pains due to inflamed cartilage that makes you wonder if you're having a heart attack) and doc said to take ibuprofen whenever it hurts and don't get any more stress.
So yeah!!! *sarcastic thumbsup*
But if you think that's gonna stop me, you obviously don't know me very well.
When I offered to take the hit and wrap up Magick Chicks, it was because I knew it would end soon. The Kickstarter shifted our timetable a bit, but the end line is near. During February I'll be updating Fragile once a week, and hopefully my schedule will stabilize by then. I hope you've also noticed that the newest pages of Fragile have been SUPER PACKED with heads and details, and I really prefer to give everything I can to make them as good as I want them to be, and not just have talking heads on black backgrounds. *shrugs*
Fragile & the Tweeks!

Isn't it exciting? ♥
I'll be at Connecticon this weekend together with the Pixie Team! Find us at the Online Media Guests area!
Whaaat, only seven books left?
May 12, 2014
THAT'S RIGHT! There are only SEVEN books left from the first print run of Fragile Volume 1. That's... that's just amazing. Thank you very much. If you've been wanting to get one, this is your chance! You can get it in the Regular Edition (book), Collector's Edition (book + bookmark + postcards) or Gold Collector's Edition (book + bookmark + postcards + prints!). Look all the nifty prints that come with the Gold Collector's Editions:
But Shou, didn't you say that there was gonna be a new print run?
Well, things didn't work out as well as they should have, and I'm gonna have to push that a little bit. So, for the time being, these are the last Volume 1s I'll have for a while (or not, if you take them off my hands! Aaah!).
What is the plan now? We know you're always planning things.
If my Summer Convention plans don't fall through, I'll have a small batch for those. Otherwise, Volume 1 will have to wait until Volume 2 is done... and I'll KICK myself to START printing them (see what I did there?).
IDW's Littlest Pet Shop!
April 24, 2014
As you might remember from past updates, I've been working as colorist for IDW on the new Littlest Pet Shop comics! It's fun, really fun (specially the covers). The first issue is out in May, please check it out!
I've also done more cover color work for IDW, on the newest My Little Pony Micro Fun Packs (which will also be out next month)!
Was this the main reason why I haven't been updating? Not at all. While I've had to learn to manage this new workload (and amazing opportunity, thanks to all the editors), I've been constantly sick since February. First my ear, then my throat, then my stomach... I'm such an easy target for germs at the moment.
But they won't make me give up comics! Enjoy the new Fragile updates! ♥

Thanks to you all for the support when he was sick,
this was very sudden and I still have trouble believing it.♥
December 13, 2013
It's a constant in my life that November and December are the BUSIEST months for me. :'D While I was finally able to restore my desktop, I had to sit down and do all the work that piled up from that "week off" (a new website and some freelance work that you will see very soon in 2014) and that just pushed everything back. :( Also if you've happened to catch the news, things are a bit rocky in my country, so that just adds to the stress...
December will be bumpy, but hopefully better things will come with the new year.
And as of note: a fellow Fragile follower is having some financial trouble covering their kitty's vet costs! If you'd like to find out more, please check out this link! I'm sure Kodlak will be very thankful.
Thank you all, and see you in 2014!
