Hi there! As a recent college graduate, most of my time goes into self-directed studies as I try to break into the comic industry. In my free time (if there is such a thing) I enjoy books, movies and video games; basically anything that tells a good story. I also love tea and going on adventures.

Hey guys, I'm so pleased to tell you that Second Sight has launched and the first two episodes are available to read!!!
Read SECOND SIGHT on Webtoon Discover
A quick comparison of the major changes being made to our protagonist in Second Sight. I have even older drawing of Kiki from as far back as 2010 when Fairy*Tales first launched, and even 2001 when I first started drawing these characters as a kid, but I don't think I could bear letting those see the light of day again. XD
I'm so excited to finally share this with you! Check out the About page for more about what this means for Fairy*Tales and why it's getting a reboot. Feel free to comment or pm me with any questions or comments!
Fantastic, as always! So glad to have Hotarugari back! :D
Finally!
Hi guys! Long time no see. I just want to reiterate how grateful I am that you're all so patient. We all want more updates, but we artists are only human, I'm afraid.

A large part of what took this particular page so long is that I had to focus on another project; a 8-page penciling submission for Dark Horse Comics. It was a great experience and I've learned a lot. I was able to take it to Rose City Comicon prior to sending it in for review, and got some great and useful feedback. :) I'll be working on another submission soon, this time from my own script (which is a WIP at the moment).

After that, I was summoned for jury duty and chosen. This oh-so-special jury lasts for weeks and will, as you can imagine, significantly decrease both my free time and mental energy for working on Fairy Tales. This will, unfortunately affect future page releases, but I will try to keep that to a minimum as best I can.

Oh, and then the pen of my tablet broke. I fixed it, it broke again a week later, I fixed it AGAIN, and 2 weeks later it was broken for good. I bought a replacement, but suffered from art withdrawals waiting for it to arrive. BUT, with luck, I will be good on the tech side for a while. -crosses fingers-

These aren't excuses, but rather simply to help you understand what's going on. You all probably don't even care so long as you eventually get your pages. XD

So again, thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support. It means the world to me. <3

It's been waaay too long since we last updated. Unfortunately, the new pages will have to be sporadic for a little while longer. I'll try my best to keep them coming, but it won't be consistent I'm afraid.
Erin is not amused by your sass, silly boy.

Pages 26 and 42 from Chapter One got a makeover. Check 'em out!

I don't think Erin's buying it.
You guys may have noticed that I added a donate button above the author comments on comic pages. This is for what I call the "Feed the Author Fund." Fairy Tales is a labor of love and as much as I want nothing better than to work on it all the time, I have responsibilities that get in the way. If that burden can be eased in even the smallest of degrees, I can allow myself more time and energy to devote to Fairy Tales.

I'm not expecting anything from you all, my precious readers. I just wanted to put it out there in case you think Fairy Tales is worth the contribution. Who knows, if the fund amounts to anything, maybe we can work out some incentive or other, such as extra updates or bonus content? Let me know what you think!

Aw, look! It's baby Kiki and Abbey! They look so happy and...well, undamaged. Any guesses as to who the mystery legs is? I'll give you a hint: I drew her face once already, but she hasn't been mentioned yet, by name or otherwise.

<s>In other news, I still fail at perspective</s>

Broken wings, and a glance that may or may not mean he saw Irene. Curious. Very Curious. ;)

THIS PAGE got a facelift on Wednesday.

Hey People
I didn't mean to make you wait so long for this page. Life's been getting in the way as of late.

You know, I really envy Irene sometimes. She can blatantly stare at pretty people without being noticed. Most of the time.
Now, is Tyler promising because he doesn't SEE anything out there, or because there really isn't anything out there? ;)
Irene, you're staring.
EDIT 2/19/14
fixed a few minor things that were bugging me. Like the entire last panel, for instance. XD
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! I can't hand out chocolate over the internet, so here's a Fairy Tales page instead. :3 Do you see what I see?

@Half_Neko - What Neil_Whitethorn said. We authors LOVE it when our projects are stalked relentlessly. ;) I update on Fridays, although not consistently. When there's an update, it'll be on a Friday.
