I spend most of my time trying to adult and failing. In the meantime I draw things.
See you soon!

Guest Art
Today's guest art is from honeypandabunny, you can follow them for more cute art here - www.facebook.com/Honeypandabunny and also www.instagram.com/honeypandabunny

Honey sent me this as a beautiful surprise before I asked for guest art and I couldn't resist giving it a week of its own! It's not often that Ain gets the limelight despite her being such a large part of the protagonists lives!

I'm sure Ain would adore this picture too and it would likely end up hung in the living room at Daisho's house, whether he wants it hung up there or not.

About the extras.

Today we get some sketches, it's possible people have seen these before but they are some of my favourites and kind of give a quick glance of everyone's personalities. Plus, who can resist a tiny ballet dancing Onna?

I love doing sketches of the characters interacting and most of the time it's situations I'll probably never get to actually show in the comic, such as Ain and Daisho's relationship from before the comic started.
Guest Art
Today's guest art is from Cyanilurus Jubatus, you can check out more of their gorgeous work here: cyanilurusjubatus.deviantart.com/

Cyanilurus has submitted two amazing images for me to share, so look forward to the second one later this month. Can you believe this is traditionally done?! I think we found ourselves a real scribe.
Go check out the page and give them a like and a follow, you won't be disappointed!

About the extras.

Added today is a sneak peak of how the comic in its initial form looked. I started Monomi a long time ago and the version you see now is revision...4??? or something.

You can see a lot has changed, originally it was a traditional only comic (as I had not learnt what digital art was yet!) but that changed once I got myself a graphic tablet. I still have the original copies somewhere, I'm very much a hoarder...

Initially the comic did start with something more exciting and we get to see Ometz who is still many pages away from being introduced. Look forward to seeing this page again soon!!

See you soon!
Hoy Hoy my beautiful readers!

So in fooooour days I am heading out to Japan for a month!! As you may have heard if you follow me on facebook, twitter etc.

(or look at the schedule for the next month I guess.)

I had hoped to have wound up this chapter before I left but I'm afraid ya'll have to wait until I'm back to find out more about Tobu's stupid questions.

I have had some kind folks donate some guest art (and boy is it beautiful) to share with you while I'm away so you'll get some lovely eye massages from some great artists!

With each beautiful piece of guest art, I will also be updating with some extra little sketches and notes so you have something to read.

I'm pretty excited!

Oracles
Sorry for the lack of comic this week folks, I've hardly been at home.

To make up for it, have this handy guide on Oracles!

I get a lot of questions about them and i'm unlikely to get any chance to explain this much in the narrative so this is a little bit of info on what they are.

~ I'm also looking for guest art to pop up while i'm on holiday so if you have something you'd like to submit, pop on over to www.facebook.com/monomicomic
I got a hair cut!

I go back to Japan in a month, so I'm attempting to learn Japanese.

There are not many chances to really test it tho.

So far my fav work is Kampai and when I get stuck with a sentence or word, I just end up saying Kampai. It just sounds so nice.
Green Tea or Water????
Who knew that sneezes could cause earthquakes.
Who knew lifts held grudges.
It's not a problem! You're a problem!

I was told it was an accident. Who knows?
I don't know how I get myself in these situations.

I still can't live this down so I just have to own it.

What a waste of an icecream.
I drew myself some fun little pictures of what Daisho and Mardo would look like reversed. Mardo's image corrupted when I saved so it is lost to the abyss of clip studio, but Daisho's came out cute so I share that with you today!

Is it fanart if it's my own characters?

Talking of fanart, I got some! Check it out on my twitter. twitter.com/paperplateart

Little bit of a break this week cause i had to prepare the house for guests and forgot what day it was.
In before "Where is the bird?" She traded it for an icecream.
