Hello, all. The past few weeks have been crazy, and I'm a little bit overwhelmed. In fact, I ought to be painting now, but I needed a break, so I thought I'd make a quick update here.

First, I've added a Pon&Zi FAQ to my profile here because I feel bad not being able to answer all of the questions that get sent in. So yeah, it's in the left column of my profile, and I think I've got most of the questions that get asked most answered. I've also added links to the Pon&Zi myspace profile and to my Twitter, also in the left column.

Second, the totebags in the shop at have sold out. I'll be getting more printed, but it may take a few weeks, so until I've got them back in stock, I've removed them from the shop. Keychains have been added, however, and there are two designs available. A few of you have asked why not all of the comics are available as prints, and it's actually because I had to rush to get them printed in time for this past Summer's convention season and didn't have time to format all of them for printing. Hahaha. I'm doing that now though, so more of the first comics should be available very soon, along with the Cactus comic, a couple unreleased comics, and even some posterrrrs. Exciting stuff.

Third, I'll be a Guest at ComiCon Long Beach in the very beginning of October! I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it for all three days, but I'll try my best. I'm not going to have a booth or an artists table for this one, but I'll be bringing prints and maybe some pins to throw at people to promote the comic and website. If you're planning on attending, send me a note, and let's meet up for coffee or a DDR duel or something. Hahaha.

Next, the top secret project I mentioned in my last journal is officially underway, and I'm really excited about it. It's still top secret, but it won't be long before I can post pictures of things and stuff.

Finally, I've been SO overwhelmed with school stuff and a million commissions that I'm a bit late on a project I'm definitely going to start anyway. Ideally, on the first day of each season, I'll be releasing a large-format, season themed Pon&Zi print, limited to 100 prints each, signed and numbered. Today was the first day of Autumn, so I'm late, but the first one will be coming as soon as I get my scholarship portfolio in, catch up with commissions, finish two menu boards for two coffee shops, and get a bit of work done for my secret project. So anyway, keep an eye out for that. It's going to be wonderful, I promise.

How did ComiCon go?

It was tiiiiny. I only went for day two, and basically all we did was leave stacks of flyers and piles of free pins at any table we saw not being used. : B

Haha way to promote! At least it's getting word out.
I printed out the ladder Pon&Zi picture and put it in my locker last year and told everyone about your comics who was like "o.O What's that?"
If it was anywhere near Manteno, IL, I would've totally been there to help you out

Which DDR level do you dance at Jeff?
azuzephre Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2009  Student
I get the level names on DDR and Guitar Hero mixed up, but the hardest one for a few songs, second hardest for everything else.

Wow, I've never written a nerdier comment.
