Ruby Red: Volume 2 is available for purchase!

If you don’t have Volume 1, you can buy them in a bundle at a slightly cheaper price.  And if you’re a patron at the $7 level, you’ll get an extra 15% of anything you buy throughout the month of July.

What the heck’s a patron, you ask?

Patreon lets you pledge money to a creator in exchange for rewards. You can select how much you want to pledge each month, and can adjust the amount or cancel your pledge anytime. Becoming a patron of my art is a great way to contribute to the free webcomics I make.

Unfortunately my portfolio is still buggy, so in the meantime you can view my art over on Behance or Deviant Art.

So, the thing is, I somewhat regularly update the blog over at Ruby Red dot com so I kind of forget about this blog.  Whoops.  So, what have I been up to for the last (oh dear god) 7 months?  Well:

So, keep an eye out over the next couple weeks for new character art and new comic pages.

Coming soon:

– regular updates. I’m going to start posting a comic I’ve been working on called Ruby Red (you can see some of the characters here). I just wanted to get enough of a buffer so that I wasn’t rushing to make regular updates, and I’ve got almost 40 pages done now, with the next ~20 thumbnailed and the script for the ~20 after that finished. I’m basically drawing it by what would be an issue if it were being traditionally published, but I’ll be uploading by page, probably twice a week. The first 20 pages have been finished since last August, but last year was kind of horrible so I didn’t get to commit myself to drawing it as much as I’d have liked. This year’s looking to be better though, so I’m looking forward to finally getting this story onto paper. As much as I love it, I’m still relatively new to drawing comics (this will be the fourth one I’ve ever drawn, and the only one longer than a single issue). It’s figuring out a process that works for both me and this comic that’s been tough, but I think I’m getting the hang of it.

– website redesign in addition to making a site for the comic.

– name change for my deviantart account. Probably to pjeanniejean. Probably.

– new scanner/printer that can scan (and print) up to 11×17 so I AM EXCITED! No more stitching together slightly larger pieces of artwork in photoshop! Plus considering my old scanner/printer was bought in 2006 (with my first ever paycheck… oh, memories), it’s well past time I got a new one.

– maybe some watercolor paintings? It’s been a while since I’ve just painted for the hell of it, and the days are getting longer now so it could be something to do. And I want to do more portraits. Maybe I should continue doing the thing where I was drawing all the reference pictures of people’s faces I’d saved to my computer. Maybe…

Also I installed a website blocker (stayfocusd) and it has worked wonders on my productivity. It’s the best thing since I discovered the youtube comment blockers, which in turn was the best thing since adblock. What I’m trying to say is that extensions make the Internet better.

So this is what an update looks like!  Not only am I updating my blog, I’ve also uploaded three (3!) new pieces, two of which you can soon have for your very own along with about nine other pieces, and many words and sentences to go with them!  Yes, I have uploaded the cover and one of the interior illustrations to that children’s book I was working on up through June, and it will be coming out soon!  Very soon!  So keep watching here for updates (or go here and follow the little elf on Facebook!  You know you want to!)

I have been working on a personal comic, and am just about to enter the pencil stage for the first chapter.  You can spot some of the thumbnails in this sketch post here.

Until next time…

I added some art!  Most of the pieces I have in my portfolio are now on the site.  Still playing around with organization, so don’t get too attached to anything yet.

Also updated the “About Me,” so now you can know my entire life (well, you’ll get the gist of it).

Hey, I have a website now!  This is quite exciting.  Thanks very much to my sister Leigh (http://madeddy.net/) for coding the site and helping with all the fun technical stuff.  I’m still getting my art together to upload it here, and I need to change my “about me” content because my name is not, in fact, Lorem Ipsum.  So… check back soon!  And continue checking back after that!
