Camp NaNoWriMo 2015!...And Animation?!

Hi everyone. Long time no see! Sorry I'm so late posting on here. At least it's been less than two months since my last post. I will post some more comic pages soon, but I'd like to talk about some other things today.

Firstly, Camp NaNoWriMo 2015 is coming up in just two weeks! April is the first of two miniature versions of the main event in November that happen every year. I will try to get a really awesome word count in and finally finish book four.

Truthfully, though, I have so many creative interests, that I don't always feel liking writing. This is not me being lazy. This is me having a hard time forcing myself to write when I'm not in the "mode". When I'm not in that writterly state of mind, my writing becomes forced and less good. That can make a book suffer a little, and I really want my books to be the best they can be. I'm going to do my best to shift my focus a bit from my artwork to my writing and just get book four done this April.

Speaking of artwork, I've recently discovered something that is so fun and addicting that it's been a major distraction: I'm actually pretty good at animation! More precisely, I've been making hand drawn animes. Some of my animation work is just for fun and less professional, as in I record all of the voices and they aren't hand drawn. My more serious work is different, though. I'm still kind of shy about sharing it with you guys, as I've mostly just talked about myself as an author. I'm very much an artist too, though.

This is a teaser trailer for a fantasy anime in the works called "Hunting Shadows". It's based after an old web comic of mine. It has no relation to my book series, but it does include sirens. I also post time lapsed videos of myself animating on the Youtube channel which you can find here.

Thanks for reading. I hope you liked this post, and thank you to everyone who enjoys what I create. It means a lot when you do. ^__^ Later folks!
