Next weekend (October 8 - 11), I'll be at the New York Comic Con in Artist Alley at table D12.
We'll be premiering our newest book, the much anticipated, SENTINEL ANTHOLOGY #2!
This book has been in the works for a long time and involves 31 different creators. Many of those creators are artists and writers who are right here on DeviantArt! They include:
The book feature amazing stories and art focused on characters from the SENTINELS universe that didn't get a spotlight in our first Anthology. In addition to that, the book will feature the adult versions of the third generation SENTINELS in a story that involves every generation of the SENTINELS teams. I won't spoil more than that because I want there to be plenty of surprises for fans of the series. I know you're all really going to enjoy it! Please take some time to view previews of the book on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Drumfish-Prod… and follow us there too!
It's been a labor of love completing this book and more work than I've ever had to do on any other project I've been involved with. I have to thank all of the creators involved for their hard work and commitment to the project. It means a lot and it was a pleasure having so many talented people work on our creations. Special thanks have to go to Luciano Vecchio, Jamie Fay and Ihor Loboda for going above and beyond and do far more to complete the book than was originally asked of them. You guys are all amazing!!! Thank you!!!
In addition to having a new book at the show, we will also be premiering our latest figurine...Harlette!
You all have to see this figurine in person to truly see how amazingly detailed and perfect she is! The new figurine company, www.ilovefigure.com , really did an incredible job. She's beautiful and I think she will sell out fast!
For those of you who can't make it to the show, you can always order the SENTINELS ANTHOLOGY #2 and the Harlette figurine by contact me here, through our website or at our store at www.freewebstore.org/drumfishp…
Working on all this has changed me and left me with a new outlook. I spent a lot of time doing my panel art this year because it helped me de-stress and allowed me to collaborate with Ihor Loboda. It also encourage me to keep drawing. I truly appreciate all the new followers here on DeviantArt that I've gotten recently. Thank you!!! Soon, I'll be debuting my free web-comic, KOWA, that I'm doing the writing and art on with coloring by Ihor Loboda. And I'll also be collaborating on a new and different title from Drumfish Productions, once again with Ihor! On this one, Ihor will be doing all of the art, while I do the writing. I'm very excited to get started on it after NYCC! Those will be my main focus for a while, so don't expect to see any of my panel art anytime soon. And don't think we've forgotten about NEVERMINDS! The title will soon get back on track too with artwork by Jamie Fay and Danielle Alexis St. Pierre.
Having said all of this, lol, I honestly don't know what next year will bring.
The convention scene has changed a lot and some of the shows we regularly attended have either closed or have been sold to another company. It's been harder and harder to get space at a show and draw attention to the Indie scene. I hope things will change, but I think that depends on creators and fans alike. Those of you complaining about the big companies and their lack of diversity, you all need to start supporting some Indie and self-published creators. Buy their books! There's a ton of quality and diverse work out there. You just have to look for it! You can start off by stopping at table D12 in Artist Alley and then heading over to table H5 to see NEVERMINDS artist, Jamie Fay.
Thanks again for all of the support!
