Who What When Where??
Long time no see!! Let me tell you what’s been up 🙂
Lost Treasure of Grimstone is almost finished. It had to be put on the back burner for a while for various reasons. Due to being very busy I only work on it when I can. First printing will be released in Japanese at Kansai Comitia 46 (2015/5/17). Be sure to save the date 😀 English version will soon follow for all you awesome international folk!
I’m also working on an ongoing web comic. Also because of the “busy” factor I still have a lot of work to do on in so stay tuned for future updates. Made a bet with my buddies Oz and Chris so there should be at least one strip finished by the end of December.
Other Projects: Always a boat load going on and some projects take priority over others. My most recent 5-Track challenge is still in the inking stage. It’s a monster due to the focus on experimental technique (mix of ball pen, crow-quill, brush, ink wash, etc… ) so not sure when that will be done. In a world where I wasn’t so ADD, I might release it as a short with ‘Lost Treasure’. Maybe for the English version (probably next October).
Oh yeah, check out this cool cup I made Rie for her birthday 🙂
By the way, I have a son now! Edward Alan Castree was born last June and he’s been a pretty awesome kid so far. Keeps me busy though. Finally getting back into the swing of things (sort of). He’s rolling over and making a bunch of crazy squeals and coos as babies do. Can’t wait till he grows up a little more and we can start drawing pictures and playing games together.
Stickers are sold out but get some monster pins! Coming soon to the A.C. Galaga Store!!
I talk about being busy (and I am) but I still find plenty of time to waste. Still obsessed with Android: Netrunner and am always looking to get some matches in. Give me a holler if you want to play online or if you live in Kansai, visit my Kansai A:NR Facebook page!!
If you haven’t been watching Gravity Falls be sure to check it out. It’s super cute, pretty funny, and really smart.
Also, got a babysitter (the wonderful Thapelo – thank you so much!!) and Rie and I got to go to the movie theater for the first time in a long time. Be sure to check out my ‘Boyhood’ thoughts over at Leterboxd.
Quick shout out to David Piper over at Sunday Ink for being awesome! Be sure to go check his latest lantern illustrations. They’re pretty amazing!
First off, this post is a big one. It’s been a while since I’ve last updated this site and I want to keep it a habit. That’s why I’ve made it a mission to post regularly ever Monday. Since it will be every week, the posts probably won’t always be this long (bite sized is better) so I’m working on come general formatting ideas.
There will also be an entire site redesign so get excited!!
Thanks again for reading and hope to give you some more cool comics soon!
