The Long Run page 102 is cracking up; also, some Feep stuff

The Long Run page 102 is cracking up; also, some Feep stuff published on

How are things going with Hali and that egg, anyway? Let’s learn:

That Patreon post includes a short discussion of how an apothecarist’s egg works, if you yearn for such knowledge.

Speaking of weird creatures (weren’t we?), I added some new tiny art to the Feeping Creatures Etsy Shop. Behold:

Do you need a bear, or perhaps a bat, for your mantelpiece? Well, now you know where to go!

I mean it, really! Just take a look here:

I talk about some of the thought process behind this page over my my Patreon, should such a thing be of interest to you.

TL;DR, characters are squirrelly creatures, and often the only way I can pin them down is by drawing them and actually seeing with my own eyes what they’re all about.

Speaking of which, I was going to work on the thumbnails for chapter 12, but it has two new characters in it, and I had to figure out what they looked like. The act of drawing them caused me to learn a bunch of stuff about them that changed aspects of the script, so it’s a good thing I didn’t thumbnail yet, y’see?

ANYWAY. See you next week for more of Chapter 11!

Cheers,

Dylan

We’ve now crossed into the triple digits, officially making this the longest single comics project I’ve ever done. It’s true! And now, the page, for your reading pleasure, is here:

In other news, I was able to snag a table at Flame Con, so I will definitely be heading to NYC later this year. Perhaps I should go update my events page at long last, huh.

EDIT: Updated my 2020 convention schedule with all confirmations I’ve received to date. There are more pending, but these are the known quantities at this point!

The latest installment Chapter 11 seeks your indulgence. Grant it here:

That there Patreon post, by the way, has a short little world-building snippet regarding certain cosmetic products one might find in the Valley, should you be curious about such things.

Eventually I’d like to do a whole Appendix post about cosmetics and beauty products in the Valley, though it’s going to be a little bit of awhile before that happens. Just know it’s a thing I think about!

Also, I need to update my convention calendar for 2020, a task which is not particularly difficult, just never *quite* my top priority. I do really have shows coming up this year, though. I swaer.

Anyhow. Until next week!

Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run – page 97 emerges

Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run – page 97 emerges published on

Ah yes indeed, page 97 is here, and it is aquiver with consternation. Read it, if you dare:

If you missed any previous updates, you can read all the pages posted so far in Chapter 11 at this very link. (There’s only one other page so far, so you don’t have a lot of homework to do.)

If you’re needing even more of a refresher than that, might I suggest hitting The Valley of the Silk Sky landing page to start at the beginning or to choose a chapter at will.

That’s it for now. See you next week!

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky - Hali

Yes indeed, page 96 is now ready to be placed inside your eyeballs. Read it in one of these fine locations:

If you can’t remember what the heck was going on with this story and would like to have a refresher, you can read all the pages so far (or choose a specific chapter) either here on Studio NDR or here on the Valley of the Silk Sky website.

If you prefer offline reading and would like a book collection, there are both digital and print volumes available, about which ye may learn more here.

For what it’s worth, I plan to update the VotSS website first with new pages, and then update here on Studio NDR when I get to it. So if you are desperate to read new pages at the earliest possible moment, bear that in mind. (And if you really, REALLY want to read at the earliest possible moment, might I remind you that $1+ Patrons get access to new pages three days earlier than the internet at large. Cough, ahem, just so you know.)

Okay? Okay! See you again next week for MORE COMICS.

Page 6 of “Trans Tokyo: A Trek to Two’s Cabin” appears, and thus is the story complete!

The exciting tale of my journey to a trans bar is Tokyo is now complete! Page 6 is to be found here on Studio NDR and here on Patreon.

If you’re looking to read the whole thing in one swell foop, here is the link for you.

I’ll also be posting the whole story to Tumblr soon, but not right at this second. Once it’s up, I’ll post a link here.

As for what’s next on the comics docket, Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run Chapter 11 is finished and ready to go. I’ll start posting pages for public consumption on January 16, 2020. Patrons who pledge $1 or more per month will, as is  the custom, get early access to pages, so for those folks it’ll start on January 13.

See you then!

The penultimate page of our parable may now be peeped! Peruse here on Studio NDR, or here on Patreon.

Tune in next week for the EXCITING CONCLUSION.

Speaking of exciting conclusions, the Kickstarter for The Nib’s Be Gay Do Comics anthology has wrapped! The project has funded quite handily, so soon you’ll be able to get your mitts on this fine book. As a reminder, I’ll have 8 pages of comics in there, alongside a great many other excellent cartoonists. If you missed out on the Kickstarter, I’m sure The Nib will have extra copies to sell retail, so keep an eye on their announcements.

Finally, I’ve finished coloring Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run chapter 11, and am in the final stages of cleaning up the scans and lettering the pages. So I’m on track to commence publishing the next installment on January 16, 2020. Brace yourselves!

Cheers,

Dylan

Yes indeed, the saga of my visit to a Japanese trans bar proceeds apace. In this week’s installment, we encounter some of Google Translate’s limitations around trans terminology.

You can read the new page here on Studio NDR, or here on Patreon.

The trans guy magazine referenced in the first panel was published by Grammy Tokyo, a queer/trans dance party for whom Masaki is a DJ. They run events a couple of times a year, so if you’re planning a trip and want to go clubbing, keep an eye on their calendar. I wasn’t there at the right time to attend one of their events, but perhaps you could be!

Cheers,

Dylan
