Ok, folks! The hardback sketchbooks are finally in my possession as of 12:45pm today. All of us that published our books through Brand Studios apologize for the hold up we had with our books in customs. So far I have carried up one palatte up to my apartment, and taking a breather, and will start bringing up the the other palatte. But I thought I owe it to you all to say they are here, and will be sent out tomorrow without further delay.
I do appreciate all of you being patient, and I promise that the wait will be worth it because I am inserting a couple of surprises in each book because I luff y'all that much! :P
I'll update the journal later today once I have brought all the books in. There will be photos to ease your minds. :highfive:
I'm dedicating tomorrow and Friday to mail out all the books.
Here are the pics as promised as well as extra footage.
The 1st pic is of the books I hauled up myself. Talk about exhaustion after 37 boxes.
Here are my boys that helped make all this possible. hehe Well one of them... the other was too shy to get it's picture taken... it kept muttering it was too puny or somethin'..
Here's Andy He called up after the first palette was done, and I tricked him in helping out with the 2nd palette! I be the evil. Thanx, Andy-san!
Here's what the living room looks like with all the books in the apartment.
And while I'm on here, I wanna let you all know the Seattle Emerald City Con was AMAZING. Thank you to Jim Demonakos for having me up there as a guest. I be back next year for sure. Thank you to Olga and Emily for showing me the city. Seattle is gorgeous. I had a ton of fun hanging out with other artists there, and I had the pleasure of sitting next to Phil Hester, and Andy Kuhn. Andy Kuhn and I shared a room, but with DIFFERENT beds! haha I still deny to this day that I was talking in my sleep, Andy.
The books are doing better than I thought. I had another sell out with the hardbacks at the Emerald City Con. I had 100 copies advanced to me for the convention, and was scurred I was gonna have to pay a grip to have them shipped back to San Diego.
I know I haven't posted of late, but it's due to some intense deadlines, but if all goes well then I'll be able to post a bit more often. Thank you all for stopping by to see how I've been doing! Hope all is well with you all, too.

Vol.2 has designs designs designs, and work related work in it.
