It’s been waaay too long since my last blog post and I’ve had to deal with a number of personal issues, including various health problems and my recently successful KICKSTARTER campaign for my upcoming A GIRL CALLED ANA TEACHES KITTENS HOW TO DRAW graphic novel. And as usual, many of you out there have had various obstacles to deal with, too. And then there were numerous technical problems involving the submission dropbox thingie…arrgh!

The truth is that I was simply exhausted from three straight years of working on Sugar Ninjas, writing and illustrating my soon-to-be-completed graphic novel (ANA TEACHES KITTENS DRAWING AND DESIGN), and searching for another school interested in starting up a comics-based Sequential Art program. Despite being unemployed for the past three years, I still managed to fall victim to overwork and the dreaded “s” word: stress. Coupled with the relatively poor printing quality of far too many copies of volume three, I found that all I could do was temporarily shutdown and hope my batteries would recharge with time…and so they have!
My trusty assistant editor, Gally Articola, has been working with me to produce another version of Sugar Ninjas volume three, which will soon be made available at Amazon.com. Unfortunately, we couldn’t use the 9 x 7 inches format, so we had to settle for 8.5 x 8.5, which was just as tricky as you can imagine. But the superior Read More
