Hidden and Lost

Are Inktober prompts/days 6, "Hidden" and 7 "Lost."

Kamiko and Jade come across a lost little girl. Is there something weird about her?

How should I know??

Lolita Fashion Coloring Book Press Kit

One of the new things I added to the site recently was a press kit page for my Lolita Fashion Coloring Book for Adults book. I will have more information in a blog post about the Lolita Fashion coloring book coming soon!

Real quick: It's a coloring book I self-published on CreateSpace. You can find the link to the Lolita Fashion Coloring Book for Adults here.

The Rabbit and the Moon Graphic Novel

I'm working on putting together a physical book for The Rabbit and the Moon.

I made the The Lolita Fashion coloring book to help me learn how to assemble a book using Scribus and figure out the pitfalls as I pushed it through Createspace to get it self-published. I think I learned something and I want to prepare this second book.

Here's a work-in-progress of the pages being laid out using Scribus, an open source desktop publishing program.

Here's the cover for the comic I'm editing in Inkscape:

I decided to go with the splash image of Kamiko from the chapter "Kamiko and the Red Thread." I didn't really like the original cover I did for the comic, which also serves as the first frame. I want Kamiko on the cover and this was the best one, even though her hair style is outdated.

I'm trying to extend it across the spine and the back cover. The front cover is the original image I did at 600dpi resolution. The back will be entirely done using vector text/images. The titles on the front are in vector too. I hope it turns out good enough to print.

That's all for now. I'll try and get the blog post up this week about the Lolita Fashion coloring book.

Also, have a Happy Thanksgiving!
