August is Here
I know... it's been a while.
Trying to figure things out in this path called life. I realized I hadn’t updated everyone here in a while.
All international orders for shipping have gone out and domestic US are still in-progress for rewards. *the volume 1 manga is still slated for a March/April 2024 release.
More headway on another chapter, still doing my best to ensure the story and art of Apeiros can be the best it can be with the tools and team available. Promise.
The special stickers and bookmarks that will be shipping with all physical copies of the book are being developed and shared soon to backers of the campaign before the public.
What’s to Come
The preview for chapter 1 needs a bit of touch-up on a few things regarding lettering and will be out ASAP once it meets QA.
Working on a new line of designs for apparel & merch store
New characters on the way!
Working on some cool video content
Some BTS art goodies that are WIP:
This is the most I can share at the moment :) there’s wayyy more I wish I could
I’ve been using a lot of my down time to really soak in a lot material to translate into Apeiros. Here’s a bit of what I’ve been checking out recently:
What to Read
At the moment I’m reading a lot more physical manga to study the art form, techniques, and foundations of the craft. As well as a few design books:
One Punch Man
Spy x Family
Ghost in the Shell
Design is Storytelling
Steve Jobs Biography
What to Watch
I’ve been diving back into cinema pretty hard lately to up my palette when it comes to visual storytelling (blocking, cinematography, color grading, symbolism, foreshadowing, pacing, dialogue, actors’ physicality…etc). It helps translate that into believable sequences I hope you all will come to appreciate.
Billions (Season 7.. finally it’s here!)
Mission Impossible series
Where to Visit
Currently I’m making my way across a few places in Europe I haven’t been to in a while, visiting the overseas fam. It seems like everyone went to Japan this year. However, the first stop London, has been a great mini escape back into its vibrant multicultural and true nightlife ways.
8:30a EST on Instagram (Yes, I know it’s early…) I’ll be doing a live Ask Me Anything for a bit. Hope to see you there :)
