i hate to start the year on a bad note... but if you've seen these posts around: 

Facebook: facebook.com/MangaPosters/phot…
Instagram: instagram.com/p/BPIiQ_lDyC1/

Whoever they are they stole artwork from me and posted it... and selling it! This has happened to a lot of artists and it needs to stop.

Seriously we can't even pay homage to our favourite characters! Anyways just an FYI, I've reported them.

Thanks to all the awesome people who told me about it!
I'm so behind on my art postings, I have alot of new art but didn't get much time to post them... 
What happened to 2016 how is it October already???
Finally I'm able to start working on Pandect Book 2.  I got upgraded at my work and then NHL, NFL, MLB, and CHL so it became way busier.  I was supposed to start back in September, I'm about 2 months late.

I work in Television, specifically Sports Television so this time of the year gets crazy busy.  Last year I was only given one region (Pacific) of Canada to take care of, now I am taking care of the Eastern Region and Ontario.  For a few short months I was given the entirety of Canada and I had to put a stop before I burn out.  

So long and short, I learned to say "NO" and learned how important it is to do that.

I'm happy to announce I've finally started working on Book 2, estimated to be published in the Summer of 2015.  I used CreateSpace for my first POD experience, I'm happy with the result.  I'll be giving Ingram Spark a try for Book 2, I heard great things about the quality by Ingram Spark vs CreateSpace so I'll keep you all up to date!

If you want to follow my progress on book 2 please keep in touch with me via the following:

Cheers,

I owe everyone an explanation...for those who follows me and wondered about the few years I've disappeared, some even thought I had died.

I was at a job that felt like a death sentence.  

I graduated and was hired into as a full time artist for package design company, all is good.
I got ambitious and greedy, I saw how much money insurance agents bring in, I was not happy with $35K or even $100K  income (where a career in art usually caps out). Insurance agents were raking in $150K - $500K on average, the only catch is to work to death in the first 5 years to build your book of business and it's smooth sailing until retirement.

So I had to give up drawing full time for a few years, shouldn't be too difficult, I'm not afraid of hard work

But the owner of the insurance office I was training under had a Jekyll and Hyde complex.  I was paid less than $25k start (in Toronto you make more working at McDonald).  A full time multi-language insurance agent pays $30K - $40K start, I didn't know better.

My work hours were 9am to 7pm six days a week, with unpaid overtime (standard is 9am - 5pm, 5 days a week, 1 hour lunch), I'm expected to work through lunch depending on work load.  And not to mention the abusive weekly meetings every Thursday starting at 8am (that is a 11hr no break, no lunch, intense work day).  Since i spoke 3 languages I took care of majority of the customers.  The standard for insurance office client per agent is 500 to 1, that office had over 6700 clients and only 4 full time agents. All of this in addition to moving benchmarks, conflicting instructions, and the boss having psychotic breakdowns because our sales numbers did not match her moving expectation.

You'd think I'd wake up and quit, this is only training, I'd still have to work another 5 years after I open my own office.  

With the endless work and a psychotic boss I couldn't even think let alone write and draw Pandect.  I spent 10 to 11 hrs a day at work depending if I had to stay overtime.  I did not have time or energy for anything else except to eat, my world becomes what the boss expect of me.  Of course I didn't even have time to reconsider if all this was worth it.

I was at a point where I would fantasize about getting into a car accident on my way to work and go on workers comp (and that was how one of the co-worker got out).  Good thing I really like my car, it was my pride and joy and I wouldn't dare put a dent on it.  

It did not help that the economy collapsed in 2008 and almost everyone I know got laid off.  My boss made sure she reminded me daily about the rising unemployment rate outside and that her letter of recommendation would give me a bonus when I open shop.  

Long and short, I met my husband in Anime North of 2011, I'm very thankful to God for bringing him into my life.  After we got married he saw what my work was doing to me and helped me snap out of it.  I quit and got a job as a Jersey designer at a Sports Jersey factory in Feb of 2012.  Later I was picked up by Sportsnet (sports tv station).  Both of these jobs were wonderful and I thank God and my husband.  For a year after I quite Insurance, I frequently wake up in tears and cold sweat because I had a dream that I was back in that insurance hell.  

Thank God I don't have those anymore and I can say I'm fully recovered.  I only started to draw in May of 2013 and the first thing I jumped on is Pandect.  I have lost most of my readers during the 3 silent years but that is okay I'm drawing again and very happy.  I am very thankful for all of you who stayed with me, encouraging me and reminding me you're still out there waiting for the rest of Pandect.

I Hope this sheds some light on those who were wondering...and for those who are at a toxic work place.. QUIT!!! I DON'T CARE WHAT YOUR REASON IS, IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!!

I just realized...the last 4 drawings I uploaded has the character covering the mouth...I wonder why I did...WHAT DOES IT MEAN??? o.o
  • Listening to: 99.5 Life FM
I forgot something very important...

It's very therapeutic to draw

:D

and I dropped the State Farm Agency opportunity... the new contract is too shitty.. :(
The new way to do business for any large corporation seems to be "eat your own off springs"

I just gave my 2 weeks notice to State Farm

going back to art

already happier and making art :)

those who read Pandect... thanks for sticking out and waiting for me!

Hi everyone,

Sakura Con 2010 just ended... THANK YOU ALL OF YOU FOR VISITING MAH TABLE (All 2 of them if some of you may have noticed I was tabled with the following lovely ladies:  :icongladyfaith::iconcl0che::iconcosmicspectrumm:

Thank you all for your support and all the encouragements :3 certainly this is a con I'm planning on returning to, it was very fun!

I will be attending:
* Anime North 2010 (TOronto)
* Anime Expo 2010 (Los Angeles)
* Otakon 2010 (Baltimore)

Hopefully Printed Pandect will be ready by Anime Expo :D

So it's in the works.... I'm going to make Pandect a printed book.  It will be approx 300 pages (which will end at about this page: pandect.comicgenesis.com/d/200…)
The book will be perfect bound A5 size (5.83 x 8.26 in ), will be sold at approx... $17 - $21 (depending on how much it will cost me to print it)
But I would like your opinion on the following dear Pandect fans - your feedbacks are important!:

- is the book too large (too many pages) ?
- Do you have a budget in buying comic books?
- comments or suggestions? Questions?

****Update****
Thank you all so much for your suggestions!! :D Definitely helped a lot. I thought about it, i agree with the suggestion that the book should be smaller... it will probably get more books out, sooner too.  At the moment there's enough pages for approx 5 books? with approx 150 - 170 pages each, hopefully I get the 1st books printed by the time the convention comes around. I'm using lulu.com to publish and the prices will be approx $10 - $12 instead. Reason for using Lulu is because I won't be able to oversee the print and make sure the book gets there while trying to get into State Farm Agency (I'VE BEEN SELECTED TO BE A STATE FARM AGENT!!! :D).  

Please let me know if you strongly opposes to using lulu.com? I've only printed my portfolio there and purchased a few books, I liked the quality.
