I LOVE drawing comics and drawing in general, digitally.

Also: loves to read and write when I have the time; sleeping in late; sweets but is diabetic (ugh). I insanely require and protect/love my privacy. My hobbies are download binge-ing, watching anime and other cult classic movies & series, and cartoons, and of course, how can I forget, living inside my head. (That's it right?) Oh yes, I love coffee (because who doesn't want something less of cocaine that can give you that everyday kick to be alive for a maximum of 5hrs, until you need another cup and/or some fucks are actually given, miraculously). (yep that's it)

I adore that poem. So rhythmic and just fun to read out loud.

Hey'all! How's it been? (^ w 0 )/ Just managing a page!

Please pardon my insufficient knowledge of pine trees, but I'm learning; the internet is quite helpful. I mean, on the initial pages I was just too lazy to draw pine trees as they are (or as close as they appear). Well, it's a challenge I'm interested to tackle! Hoho~

Stay young folks!

Dunno why I just picked it out soon!
I was browsing through and I got interested in the cover --- was not disappointed
\( * w * )/

The gritty art style and the main protagonist Khan, perhaps even the theme (just my presumption, haven't read all) give me the Neil Gaiman 'Sandman'vibes. Especially Khan, kinda similar to the Lord of Dreams (miss his brooding terribly). I love how there's the supernatural linked to lore, and that the people surrounding Khan gets tangled in the whole mess; it's interactive with the other characters -- all morally grey and muddy -- and your curiosity would bet on anything but the best for them.

I'll be reading this through. Dunno why I didn't pick it out soon. Looks promising. So glad it's completed--gettin' ready to binge! (> w < *)

! U P D A T E !
Hey'all! Still alive, just so busy! I swear...

I know, it's a lake. An artificial lake, at that!
If it's not obvious enough, the BM club is almost half-deserted, due to the previous mishaps.

Stay young, folks!
A Page!
These siblings always have a reason to bicker. Tsk, tsk
Get ready for so much blue! ( 0 w ^ )/*

Stay young folks!
Hey'all! here's an update--finally! that took like, what, a week. haha...
A head's up: the next page'll be late too.
I'll post when I can (that i'm sure).

Stay young folks!
Saturday Update!
Me when I realise I have work tomorrow at bloody 6 AM sharp: [Josef's face at the 6th panel]

Hey'all! Head's up on the next page which might be a bit late, if not next Tuesday then mehbeh Wednesday...Definitely next week.

Stay young, folks!
Flashback~Verse pt.iii (verses 10, 11, 8)
Hey'all! Another 1pg update for you.
Have this flashback!
It's about the 2nd disappearance that happened 10 yrs. ago in the BM club. Lawyers and the media are straining.

The poem is Song Of Nature by Ralph Waldo Emmerson, the verses above are as follows: 10, 11, 08

(poem transcript)
x. But he, the man-child glorious,--
Where tarries he the while?
The rainbow shines his harbinger,
The sunset gleams his smile.

xi. My boreal lights leap upward,
Forthright my planets roll,
And still the man-child is not born,
The summit of the whole.

viii. What time the gods kept carnival,
Tricked out in star and flower,
And in cramp elf and saurian forms
They swathed their too much power.

All credit for the verses goes to R.W. Emmerson.
Another Update!
Woooh! Another update!

Hey'all! It seems I'm planning on 1 page per update, but this can be changed if my will and day-offs go as planned, hehe.

Well anyways, enjoy the page!
Expect the poem-flashback next update too!

Stay young folks!

Hey y'all! I've found the time and finished this. I hope I can be consistent this time. I mean this chapter has encompassed 2 years and it still hasn't concluded yet! And you can bet the pages shall go over 100!

Honestly guys, I really want to finish this chapter so that I can showcase the other meaty parts of the whole series; I mean, a dozen or so characters haven't been introduced yet. That's why I'm already cutting out some floppy edges and going straight to the main bits. Hoooooooh..... but not to worry (me), by the end of the 4th checkpoint that'll be the end of the 1st part!

So please do bear with me. \( ='w'= )/
And do expect another update by next week, not sure if on Wed or Sat. Hmm. Stay tuned!

Stay young folks!
Hey @BananaUhl! so glad you noticed that haha, haaaa oh the early days. ~(=w=*)~
:: filler ::
Okay, so there's 1 good news: my art software is fine now. The hiatus holds still, sorry.

I'm still working (literally) and on things so that I can ease my "comic-making time".

Until then!
Hey y'all!
As you've read above Sakura Day will once again be under hiatus and might go one for 1 or 2 months.
(Wow this chapter is taking a year to finish, I'd surprise myself if I can finish it before I reach my 30s. **sarcastic scoff**)

I've been working and it has sucked all my vital energies, but I am working on managing my work time and comic-making time (please don't mention my day offs, they're cramped too with other personal agendas).

Also, more importantly, my the art software is having a major problem and I can't use it normally. I am fixing it presently.

So until then folks!
Filler :: Art & Dorothy, the other couple
Hey! It's the other team, Art+Dorothy! Just a filler for y'all. Aren't they a fast pair, that's cuz they're already so comfortable with each other they have no more problems that hinder their progress, at least nothing that major. (Lina+TJ are civil and cute, but they're both too bashful of one another; then there's Josef+Meija, they're still working on it...)

They're both in their mid-twenties. Been patrons of the Benoite Massingale Club for 5 years. Dorothy and Art are childhood sweethearts and childhood friends. They're part of a project I've been meaning to construct 2 years ago. That's all I can share for now because some details aren't fleshed out properly and some are spoiler-material.

You can ask me any trivial question about these two!
UPDATE! ***\(>w<)/***
Hey y'all! Been over a month since I've updated, hehe. It's kinda funny that the comic page title is ironic to my excuse and present conditions of my comic update schedule.

You see, I've been busy with work lately (9-6, m-f) and I can only have the weekends to rejuvenate and do my hobbies. It's kinda limiting and I'm afraid my update schedule might drag (longer than today), since I'm planning on taking grad school. I just really hope I can finish chapter 13 within the following months!

For now, I've finished this page thinking about y'all! Hope you all like it.
(I'm aware, the story is dragging but it's meant to be detailed and rung out in some scenes to obtain an effect.) I'll be so happy if I can finish this chapter. I own the fault that I didn't prepare this chapter pre-production prudently , but I'm learning the ropes.

Please bear with me!

Stay young, folks!
Happy New Year Folks!
Guess what the colour of 2018 is~

Still alive, I am. I. Am. So. Sorry. Again, I'm sorry I couldn't upload new pages, the internet at home was down for three days and my laptop's battery is getting funny. Hey even this little greeting of mine is 2 days late, haha. (**harshly whisper oneself**get your shit together!)

** Oh, if you're wondering why this gif is grainy, well that's what happens when an image with tons of colours & gradients is converted into a gif in photoshop (I don't hate photoshop though, just is); this is the highest dither(quality) with the lowest size. **

Anyways!Hooray it's 2018 and you survived everything from 2017! Keep on going, mate! I'll be posting next week, I just pray my laptop won't die on me soon.
<img src=" ar_greeting_2018_by_minightrose12-dbyo28n.png">
See you all soon!
Stay Young!
Late Update!
But seriously guys the pedalo/paddle boat can be challenging at first! We took a ride in one shaped like a swan and it didn't even have a steer, mind you. Yeah, we spent our time trying to change course, stuck in one direction, backed up in the pond's corner bushes; by the time we finally did unstuck ourselves, our time was up. *Sigh* Those were fun times.

Hey y'all! Sorry it's late but hey! here's a page if you will. (I'll try to catch up now!)
Hey! Let me hear your experience with the same wretched-contraption-of-a-boat/pedalo/paddle boat!
Enjoy the rest of the week!
Late Saturday Update!
Sorry y'all for updating only this weekend; we just moved into the city and we had some tight days (ie. no access to the net and space to finish the page)--same song, same verse.
But ANYWAY! Here's A page! I don't think I can promise anything for now, but I'll post when I can. I'll try to pick the pace up in this chapter (3 years huh? wow).

Wish me luck anyhow.
I just want to notify y'all that Sakura Day update schedule shall be changed to every Saturday and Tuesday/Wednesday.

So there won't be an update tomorrow. Expect Tuesday or Wednesday (between those days, I'm still managing).

Enjoy the weekend folks!
Here's the promised update from yesterday!

If there are any comments or constructive criticisms, please feel free to speak out and I shall reply if deemed prudent.

'Til Next Weekend, folks!
