Drop Dead Vince Chapter Two Coming Soon! (And DDV's Third Anniversary!)
Hey cats and kittens! Happy 2014!
It really has been a while hasn't it? I feel pretty embarrassed since I promised Chapter Two would start last month, but this year was off to a weird start for me. I found out that I was laid off from my seasonal job at the last minute, so I've had to stop working on comics for a while to try to work on some commissions and freelance projects to make ends meet. It's been stressful and emotional for me, 2013 was not my best year and I'm honestly scared that 2014 becoming 2013 Part Two. It's been affecting my work on Vince pages so it's been taking me longer to work on them because I've been really discouraged. I'm really hoping that it's just going to be a rough January and that the rest of the year will go smoother for me, but sadly you can't predict the future (especially not mine lately).
So the new plan for Vince is that I'm trying to aim for Valentine's Day this Friday to launch Chapter Two. It's not going to be set in stone, but that's going to be my goal for this week and hopefully I'll be able to meet it.
Speaking of Valentine's Day, it's not only Vince's birthday but also the Third Anniversary of Drop Dead Vince! It's hard to believe the comic is three years old now, this being one of my first big projects and one of the longest running ones I've had currently. I'd love to do something special for the occasion, but it will depend on if I can get the second chapter prepped in time to launch on Friday.
Thank you everyone for your support and for being so patient with me and my ridiculous schedules. Hopefully next time I'll see you with the next chapter of Betty and Vince's adventures!
Double Update and Drop Dead Vince's First Chapter is Finished!
Hey cats and kittens! The Double Update for Drop Dead Vince is finally up and ready to read! And even bigger news:
CHAPTER ONE IS FINALLY FINISHED!!!
Thank you everyone so much for your support and for sticking around since Vince's very first page. It was a bumpy ride to get to this point but I'm pretty proud of myself for being able to finish a 31 page comic.
As for the next chapter, Chapter Two will officially begin in January 2014! I'll be taking a break from comics in November and will begin work on the second chapter in December. Thank you again so much for all the comments, likes, favorites, and your support. I'll see you in 2014!
WE'RE BACK! (No, really! I mean it!)
FINALLY Vince is back to the web! As much as I wanted it to be, 2013 unfortunately was not Vince year it seemed (or mine either). I was in a terrible funk (still kind of am to be honest) and working on pages didn't seem to be happening for me at all over the past couple months. Thankfully though I managed to get 26 done and there's only a couple more pages left for Chapter One until it's finally finished.
I'd like to thank all of you who have stuck around and who have supported Vince despite such a long wait. I'm so blessed to have readers like you and it means the world to me that you enjoy Vince so much and you're able to put up with me during such a rough year. Thank you so much for being so patient! I promise you that you won't have to go through another long wait for a while. Enjoy the new page and I'll see you cats and kittens next time with page 27!
Vince Still Lives! (and some life updates on yours truly)
Hello everyone! I know it's been a while hasn't it? I'd like to apologize for the long absence. Since I got back from Animation On Display I've gotten into a big funk that made working on comic pages and art in general difficult. I've also been pretty broke and having a hard time finding work in the meantime, and also wondering about what direction my life should go.
But I'm still determined to finish Vince's first chapter and hopefully get his first book/zine printed. I've actually recently gotten back to working on the last few pages and while it is coming along slow I am making some progress on them. I can't say how long it will take for the moment to finish them but I'm hoping to aim for the end of June at the latest to get them finished and get them uploaded on Smack Jeeves. Since I'm trying to work on all of the pages I have left at the moment (I've been working on them out of order), once I get them finished I'll be uploading them a page a week until the first chapter finishes! In the meantime I've been uploading older pages over at a site called Tapastic, which you can check out here incase you need to catch up on Vince.
I've also moved the Drop Dead Shop to a new location, Storenvy! You can check it out here, and along with some new products such as the Second Anniversary Print and Sticker and glow-in-the-dark buttons there's also International shipping for any of my readers outside of the United States!
Thank you guys so much for giving Vince and Betty your support and for being so patient with me. 2013 has been a rough year for me so far, but here's hoping the remainder of it will look up soon. See you soon!
DDV's 2nd Anniversary, Book News, And AOD
Drop Dead Vince is two years old today!
Thank you so much for reading Vince and for sticking around for so long. It means a lot to me that you're enjoying this comic as much as I enjoy working on it.
It's been a while, I hope 2013 has been a good year for everyone so far. There's been quite a bit of news since my last update. For one, the first chapter is almost finished! There's just a handful of pages left to work on, which I'm planning to finish all together before I upload them online, so give or take the next update should be ready hopefully sometime next month and there'll be a page per week until the first chapter ends. Afterwards I'll go on a hiatus to work on the first couple pages for the next chapter, but I can't say how long that will take for the moment.
Concerning the book/zine of chapter one, the book will be done once I finish the last few pages and also get it organized to print, as well as get a few corrections and details tweaked for it. I'll definitely post more news about the book once it gets closer to completion, so stay in touch!
Also, this weekend I'll be in San Francisco at Animation On Display with a table in the Artist Alley:
Stop by and say hello! I will also have some Vince goodies for you to check out including a new Anniversary print, postcards, stickers, and glow-in-the-dark pins!
This year's been a little nuts for me so far, but I'm hoping 2013 will be a good year for Vince and its fans. Thanks again for sticking around and for being so patient with me. Happy Valentine's Day and I hope to see you again soon!
DDV Book News
Hey cats and kittens! Just wanted to give all of you an update on the book situation with Vince. I know I said I wanted to get it printed by Halloween, but I don’t think that’s going to work for two reasons: One, I’m going to be working again soon so that’s going to eat up some of my time and the first chapter is not quite finished yet (as well as getting it all prepped for printing), and Two I do not have enough funds for the moment to get the books printed or the time to get them printed.
However, the book will happen, and I actually do have something special planned for Halloween later this month. As for when the books will be printed, I’d like to try to aim for hopefully sometime in December to give me some time to both raise the funds and give the printer I decide to go with time to get them finished and delivered. Me working again is also going to make the updates take a bit longer to happen but they’ll still happen too so don’t you fret.
Thank you all again for being so supportive and so patient with me. I hope to bring you guys some more news soon!
Book Update and a Hiatus
For those of you who have been waiting for the first chapter of Vince to be released in book form, I am sorry to say that I will not be able to finish the first chapter in time to get it prepared for printing before the convention at the end of this month. HOWEVER, the book will happen but I am setting the deadline around Halloween next month to give myself more time to finish the first chapter and get it organized and printed. So don’t fret, you’ll be able to read about Vince and Betty in book-form hopefully around the same time you’re trick-or-treating and dressing up!
Speaking of, Drop Dead Vince will be taking a short break while I prepare for the convention later this month. Stickers are already printed and cut out, but I still have two prints that I need to finish AND I need to get those printed out as well. I’ll give you all a sneak peek at the prints once they’re done. Thank you guys again for all of your support and for being so patient!
Double Update Status and a "Slowatus"
Hey everyone! The next two pages are coming along, and will be finished and posted hopefully soon, but I wanted to let you guys know that Drop Dead Vince will be going on what I'll refer to as a "slowatus". Updates WILL happen, but due to me trying to get ready for the convention and get the first chapter ready for printing it's going to take some time. Thank you for being so patient with each update and for all the support you've given me. I'll let you know when the double update is finished!
