O yes indeed, there’s a new Taxonomically Unbound. Brace yourselves for this one, and read it here:
AND BUT ALSO:
As you may recall, the whole reason I’ve been putting out all these TaxoUnbos was because I was hard at work on a new Valley of the Silk Sky story for an anthology, and the Kickstarter for that anthology is now live!
It’s actually TWO anthologies (though you can choose to back one or both). My story is in Monster Journey, an all-trans masc book about monster funtimes.
The other anthology, For the Love of Monsters, features stories about human/monster dating.
Do they both sound awesome? Of course they do! So go forth and pitch in to shepherd these books off to the printer.
Gotta post this one a day early, for obvious reasons. Ye mought read the new TaxoUnbo here:
In other news, the new Valley of the Silk Sky short story is done. DONE, I TELL YOU.
It took a lot longer than I had expected (digital shading is just simply not any faster than physical media, at least not for me), but it is finished and turned in. Once I have more details regarding the anthology’s release, I shall impart them unto you.
Speaking of anthologies, this one just got announced yesterday: Pros and (Comic) Cons, coming out from Dark Horse in May 2019!
I have a three-page story in there, and while it’s a reprint of earlier work, this will be the first time it’s gotten wide distribution to bookstores. So! Keep an eyeball out for that one.
The newest Taxo Unbo is set to maximum spoop, so hopefully you’re not feeling too spooped to spop. Read it hither and thither:
Meanwhile, as mentioned in the title, the new Valley of the Silk Sky short story, slated to be published in an upcoming anthology, is very nearly complete. I’m midway through shading the last page, just in time to have everything turned in by the Nov 1 deadline.
Presumably I will have further details soon regarding how you actually obtain said anthology (which I believe is going to be funded via Kickstarter). So! Prepare yourselves for incoming excitement and thrills.
Now, it’s back to finishing up pages for me!
Read on, but careful not to get yourself smothered in window dressing:
I’m still shading away on the new Valley of the Silk Sky short story (throwing shade on the pages?), and it continues to take longer than I’d have liked, but such is the peril of working in an unfamiliar medium. I must a-tone for my sins, I suppose.
Ahem. Anyhow. Back at it!
EDIT: I finally managed to get it uploaded! New Taxo Unbo is on Studio NDR right here. I solved the mystery by leaving for a couple of hours, and then trying again.
So I do have a new Taxo Unbo ready, and have been able to post it to Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Patreon, but for some reason the WordPress media manager absolutely, positively refuses to upload the file.
I have tried resaving the file in a couple different formats, I’ve tried renaming it, I’ve tried using a different browser: all of these generate an “HTTP error” with no additional information. I’m able to upload other image files, just not this particular one to this particular website. I am completely and totally baffled, no clue whatsoever what to try next.
Soooo, anyway. You can in point of fact read the new comic, you just gotta do it at one of these other places:
Speaking of the ol’ Patreon, I’ve been posting a few work-in-progress images from the new Valley of the Silk Sky short story. The most recent is here and is available to $1+ subscribers. I have another I’ll likely post tomorrow.
Anyhow, back to bashing my head against this website to try to figure out why I can’t upload this one image that every other website has had no problems with.
All the new Taxonomically Unbounds this month are gonna be Halloweeny, so just imagine me pulling a lever in a dungeon and screaming something about Pun Goth Power to Maximum. The first ghoulish endeavor is available here:
Also, I’m hoping to get a post up tomorrow for $1+ Patrons with work-in-progress sneak previews of the new Valley of the Silk Sky short story, so if you wanna peep such a thing, drop a buck in the bucket.
The latest in the Most Worst Puns onslaught is here for your reading “pleasure”:
Starting next week, I will be inflicting a series of Halloween-themed pun comics upon you all, so brace yourselves for that.
In other news, it may interest you to learn I just finished penciling that Valley of the Silk Sky short story I’ve been working on for an upcoming anthology. Next up: inking, inking, and more inking!
That means folks who pledge $1 or more to my Patreon will soon be getting sneak previews of the work-in-progress.
And, of course, once I have more info about the Kickstarter for the anthology (which I think will be going up in November?) I will let you know.
Yes indeed, it is time once again for a new Taxonomically Unbound. It may be groaned at in any one of these fine places:
Also, in case you missed the announcement last week, don’t forget to check out Draw Out the Vote, the new website put together by Oni Press. It features comics by cartoonists from all 50 states, plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico, sharing their personal stories about why voting is important to them.
I did the comic for Colorado. There’s info for each state on how to get registered and how to vote, so be sure to give it a look and share widely!
Here’s that announcement I was talking about!
Oni Press has put together Draw Out the Vote, an amazing project featuring comics by creators from all 50 states, plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, sharing their own personal stories of why voting is important and how it affects them.
Each state’s page also includes information on how to vote, registration deadlines, and more.
I did the comic for Colorado.
Check it out, find your state, and share, share, share!
Yes indeed, a new Taxonomically Unbound makes itself known today. It lives in these places:
I thought I was going to have another announcement today, but it has not yet been officially announced. So. I may well be posting again shortly, just waiting for a green light.
ANYway. Do carrion.
