Update 2017

For those of you wondering if I’ve been dead the last year, the answer is no. What I’ve mostly been doing is working and taking care of some personal matters. I’ve linked some of the books I’ve done above.

A year back, I thought I might be able to squeeze in random small commissions here and there, but I’ve just been too swamped with everything going on in my life. Some of which is quite personal and I’d rather not get into it because it enrages me just thinking about it.

I’ve received all the e-mails coming into my address, but I just haven’t had the time to reply, and even if I did reply, I wouldn’t have been able to accept the commission. As things stand currently, it’s looking just as unlikely as last year that I’ll ever get back to doing commissions, so I’ll have to cut it off completely. You can still reach me at the same e-mail address, but I won’t be replying to commission requests.

For those who aren’t aware, Ganassa did finally finish the Zoey comic I had commissioned with him a few years back. You can find the whole thing on his HF account here.

Lastly, for those of you wondering about a certain kickstarter project, I’ll only say that my part in the project ended April 14th with the delivery of the final doc file for the last volume of the series. Beyond that, I have no idea where the project sits.

What’s been going on this past year

As many have no doubt noticed by now, I haven’t exactly been active over the past year or so.

For those who aren’t already aware, I’ve been working full time on Fakku’s magazine chapters since April of 2015. I can’t remember the exact number of chapters done so far, but it’s in the low thousands. Initially, this was roughly 2 magazines at 900 pages a month. It has since expanded to 3 magazines at 1200 pages a month + a tankoubon/doujin here and there. I recently did the TL for ShindoL’s Metamorphosis, which has started coming out and should be fully released within the next 3 days. The book might not be to everyone’s taste, but I would recommend it if you can stomach a very depressing story.

As you can imagine, having to do 1400-1500 pages a month doesn’t leave me with loads of free time, so I’ve been limiting incoming commissions primarily to completing/continuing series that are “under my umbrella” so to speak. I’ve had other more personal matters that have sucked many hours out of my days, but I’d rather not go into that. Suffice it to say it’s an ongoing issue, and I’m not expecting it to improve anytime soon.

If you’ve e-mailed me in the past few months, there’s a good chance I haven’t replied. Simply put, I haven’t had any time to go through e-mails and even less time to reply to them. I do have a couple of commissions in progress that I am hoping to finish by the end of the year, as well as a kickstarter project you may be familiar with. After that, I may decide to shut down commissions entirely. I “might” choose to continue the very rare series like Seishokuki or Dulce Report, but the past year has made it pretty clear to me that I’ve had no free time and I kinda want some of it back. While I do expect to get my weekends back once the kickstarter is complete in early 2017, I’d like to devote some of that time to practicing some of my 3D work. Something I’ve had to put on the back burner for months since completing my course.

As for what my plans are for this website/blog, I haven’t yet decided. I’ll need to give it some thought, but I’ve more or less settled on shutting down the commissions partially if not entirely once the new year rolls around.
