Preorders for Still Turns ended last Friday. Thank you to everyone who bought a copy! I have begun to ship orders out earlier than planned; the first batch went out today, and the next batch has been packaged. I hope to have all orders shipped out by the end of September.

I’ve also had a few people ask me about regular orders: they will become available either late this year or (more likely) early next year.

When your order is shipped you will receive the usual notification email from Storenvy. I hope all packages reach their destinations safely!

"But the ocean will vanish slowly back to the mountains," argues the spellmaker, "and become again the river."

"We are not water," replies the Keeper. "If we come down to the shore, we may forget the mountains forever."

Hello! I just wanted to thank everyone who took the time to drop by my table at SMASH! 2014. It was my first time tabling and an overwhelming experience. Everyone was very kind, I only wish I could have had the chance to chat with some of you more. (I’m sorry about being sick; I was okay for most of Saturday but on Sunday was feeling more and more unwell as the day progressed which meant I wasn’t as active as I would have been otherwise.)

Lots of gratitude especially to aivii who helped me out immeasurably and endured my blocked-nose & occasionally coughing presence for a whole 2 days (I have put up your left-handed drawing as well as your fabulous Gintama print for they give me life). Also thank you to choo, Katie, and KC for being such great neighbours…!

Thank you to those who gave me gifts! And to the person who gave me some of their lovely prints and then left before I could get details, please let me know who you are (if you are comfortable with it)!

As for housekeeping: I have updated the stock levels of my prints on Storenvy, as well as adding in a few from the new run I did for the convention. I sold out of a bunch of prints so they haven’t made it to the store, and for a few others I only have about 1-2 copies left. (Tangentially related: the preorder period for Still Turns also ends this week on the 15th of August, AEST.)

I hope you guys all enjoyed your weekend!

Hello everyone! I’ll be tabling for both days at SMASH! this year, at table number 23 in the Artists’ Circle. I will have copies of my book, Still Turns, along with prints both current and new.

I will be sharing a table with aivii! If you can make it, please drop by and say hello, I’d love to meet some of you guys.

PS: All prints currently up on my Storenvy will be marked as “sold out” for the duration of the convention. Stock levels will be reassessed post-convention, although I can’t guarantee that what is available now will still be available afterwards. Thanks!
