About Me

Let's see.... I'm a junior at the University of Washington, living on campus. After making comics fairly consistently since I was about seven, I decided to actually show some to an audience. Hello, audience. This account will be solely for my Nuzlocke comic for a while. Sorry, Pokemon haters. =/

When I grow up (read as "have to find a way to make money besides pickpocketing elderly people"), I hope to be an author/screenwriter. Since that probably won't happen, I'll soon be the schizo tugging on your jacket, pleading for spare change and maybe some hot mustard for my toes. (Yes, you develop schizophrenia as soon as you're evicted. True story.)

I listen to music a lot while I'm working on stuff. My favorites include The White Stripes (slash anything Jack White touches), Queens of the Stone Age, Eminem, Silversun Pickups, System of a Down, Fall Out Boy, One-Eyed Doll, Local H, Yelawolf, Lorde, MS MR, Linkin Park, and Hollywood Undead.

Also, the Haunshaul in my comic is NOT a representation of me, or a Pokesona or whatever. "Haunshaul" was just too long for the player name. I don't have any comic representation of myself. Feel free to make me one sometime.

Proof that all moth-based Pokemon are adorable.

Kind of.

Like 7%.

You should tell people the real reason I didn't do a full run. #Cryingunderadesk2015

@ozymandias_jones Thanks a lot for the input! The throwaway page thing is a really tricky balance, because I have to pace the comic as both a story with daily updates and as one that might be binge-read months after the pages have released. There's also my self-imposed limitations regarding page size and chapter length, and my tendency to prefer cinematic single images over multi-panel pages in a lot of cases. It's something I try to balance, and I realize I got carried away this chapter. =P

In regards to "Once More With Feeling", I'm not there yet. I'm a little over halfway through season five, and I believe "Once" is a few episodes into season six. I keep getting distracted by other things and haven't made nearly as much progress in the show as I'd like, though that's also because I'm simultaneously watching Angel. Hopefully when I start working on the next chapter in the next few days I can crank through most of the rest of this season. =)

And that is one more chapter complete! I'm really proud of a lot of elements of this chapter (primarily in regards to the art on several panels, and to a lesser extent the actual writing), and I think it bodes well for the future. Unlike the last couple chapters, I've been excited to work on the comic over the last few weeks and I think that positive attitude will really help with future updates. (Getting back into watching Buffy helped as well.)

In regards to future updates, I will be taking a few weeks off to relax and prepare the next chapter (and maybe buy a new tablet, since this one just keeps creating issues). I'm going on a trip to the East Coast from August 15th to 27th, so I won't be able to work on pages then. I'll likely get a few pages done in early August and complete the rest of the chapter when I get back. Because of the trip, the hiatus will be a bit longer than those between subsequent chapters. So, expect the next chapter to start sometime in September or early October.

I'd like to once again thank my readers, both old and new. I really appreciate all your kind words and constructive criticism, and truly believe this comic has become infinitely better thanks to fan input.

Talk to you soon.
