"Whenever I Feel Like it" Schedule (and Bonus Caricature!)

I've been putting off writing this post for quite some time...

I am sure that the considerably small readership of this humble webcomic has noticed my sporadic and often missed updates.  The truth is, I have simply had far too much on my plate for far too long.  In order to catch up, not just in my professional projects, but also in my personal life, I have had to take some time to sit and prioritize the things in my life.

Of course, husband always shoots to the top of the list.  Husband is more than a relationship, he's my best friend, my confidant, my business partner, and my support system.  Wallowing in depression over perceived failure and missed updates is not conducive to a happy homelife.

Taking that into account, I had to ask myself what I truly want to do with my art career.

The answer?  Get a job.

How do I do that?  Network and have a bitchin' portfolio.

How do I get one of those?  Draw more, study harder, and draw more.

Why am I not already doing that?  Because I'm depressed about being too busy and missing my webcomic updates.

Do I make any money from the webcomic?  Realistically, no.

Am I disappointing a large fan-base?  Honestly only a precious (and I mean precious as in you guys mean the world to me) handful.  But a handful none the less.

What do I get out of keeping up with the regular schedule then?  Mostly the amusement of friends and family that know me.

After this careful consideration and realizing that I have unwittingly derailed my original plans with this humorous experiment, I have come to the conclusion that I really should be focusing on the things that will help me most in the long run.  I really need to push forward and develop my weaknesses while cultivating my strengths in my work.  I also desperately want to finish a graphic novel worth keeping in my portfolio and have had development on hiatus for some time.

This does not mean I will no longer be updating Geeks in Love.  This just means I am having to adopt a "when I have time" or "whenever I feel like it" schedule.  I love doing the webcomic and will still put out strips when the mood strikes.  If you follow the Geeks in Love Facebook Page or watch me DeviantArt, you are much more likely to catch these updates.

And hey, with how many posts I've missed throughout the year, not much is honestly changing.  So look at this that way.

 Here's another caricature!  This one's my Aikido Sensei, Jessica.  She's got a black belt in AWESOME.

Geek Anniversary / Bonus Caricature

Hey, geeks!

So this past weekend was Beau and my 6 year wedding anniversary!

This means of course that I was too busy celebrating to bother to do a Geeks in Love strip, and I'm sorry.  But I promise it was for good reasons!  Reasons that included country French style lunches, The Princess Bride (the book), "The Lion King" in 3-D, book shopping, comic brainstorming, live satellite broadcasts of "The Phantom of The Opera" 25th Anniversary performance at The Royal Albert Hall in London showing at my local movie theater, cupcakes, chai lattes, and decadent dinners!  Reasons that make me a happy and productive little artist!  Reasons that keep from wallowing in social networks and daytime TV due to a lack of stimuli!

See?  It's all good.  I'm also working on a new site and some commissions too.  In the meantime, here is a bonus caricature of my Iai sensei. I'll try and have something else up by the end of the week.  (Maybe my Aikido sensei.  We'll see.)

Yoga Flame

I have always been a fan of exercise and have recently been enjoying the addition of yoga to my fitness repertoire.  It took a considerable amount of poking and prodding, but I also finally got Beau on the bandwagon.  While I'm happy to have a partner in my pursuit of flexibility and tranquility, I have a feeling Beau is only in it for the really advanced stuff

Litter

Lily doesn't know the meaning of patience.  Now Beau makes absolutely sure he leaves the lid on the litter bucket when scooping the box.  Always an adventure in a cat household.

(Fun fact:  I made the curtains for the lid to the litter box out of my old work shirts.  It was a crappy job, so it seemed appropriate.  Ba-dum-PSH!)

Spelling

So my convention season is finally over!  I'm actually really excited, not only to get back to regularly scheduled "Geeks in Love" updates, but also to work on my portfolio and an even better table setup for next year's conventions.

In my hunt for better products (like higher quality prints), I've come up with some pretty interesting results...

Remember, kids, spelling is important!  Using it incorrectly can yield false expectations.

New Strip Tomorrow! (And Other News)

I am happy to announce that "Geeks in Love" will be returning to it's regular weekly schedule, starting tomorrow!  (I mean it this time.)  Also next week, it will be returning to Mondays.  (Last time I change it, I swear.)

Our Sempai at the dojo, Patrick.
After my caricatures of myself and
Beau doing Iai,the rest of the dojo
was pretty excited about seeing
even more Iai caricatures.

Other News...
Sac-Anime Summer '11 turned out to be yet another success, thanks to all the wonderful people who stopped by table with such lovely things to say. Thank you also to all the people who commissioned me. This was a record for me, so I hope you all are enjoying your artwork as much as I enjoyed making it.

Happokaze Budo's Embu (or "Demo") @ Sac-Anime
Anyone check out that sword demo at Sac-Anime on Saturday? That was my dojo, and my husband (Beau) was totally up there showing off his sweet moves. In all seriousness, considering the surface of the stage was like the bottom of a toaster oven and the sun like lasers, I thought they all did an amazing job. (Dojo pride!)

A few fun facts about the demo...
1.Actual sword technique is designed for maximum defensive capability while removing a threat as quickly as possible. Unnecessary spins and fancy tricks leave room for openings. Although, quick draws or cutting draws are common practice.  [link]

2.The senior student (or sempai) traditionally takes on the role of Uchidachi (the initial attacker that allows the junior student to strike the winning blow) so that the junior student (Shidachi, and in this case Beau) may learn the skill or ability. It is meant to reflect the role of a nurturing parent who intentionally loses to the child so that the child may develop and grow.

3."Why do they bow twice before beginning?" (Because I was asked this at the convention). Traditionally in the dojo, we actually bow three time: Once to the Shomen (a representation of the school and the founders or instructors that came before), once to the Sensei (instructor), and once to the blade itself. Think of it as showing respect to the art, the teacher of the art, and the tool used to pursue the art. In this instance, they only bowed to the Shomen and the blade, as there was no instruction during Embu.

Special thanks to Matt for recording the demo. I may have some clips up on my next update, after my Sensei's review.

The Worst Comic Ever...?
So, my buddy Devon Mc Mindes (writer/artist of "Some People Have Antlers", the first 288 hour graphic novel with each chapter being completed on a 24-Hour Comicbook Day), is working on a script for what he calls "The Worst Comic Ever Written." Because he claims he can't write, he wants Beau to draw it, because he can't draw. I had the hilarious pleasure of reading a great deal of the synopsis at Sac-Anime, and greatly look forward to this next marvelous title. Oh, and I'll be doing the cover.

Well, that's it, Geeks.  See you tomorrow with the new strip!

Sac-Anime & Beau's Iai Demo!

Hakama's sure are spiffy.  Can't wait 'til I get one!



For those not in the know, Beau is a student in the art of Iaido (which I have also recently begun studying).

This Saturday (9/3/11), he and other memebers of Happokaze Budo will be performing a demonstration on the outdoor ampitheater stage at the Sac-Anime Convention at 12:00 noon. This is a rare opportunity to see, so if you're around Sac-Town you should come and check it out!

Guard stance while leaping?  LOL, what? :P





Though I will not be joining in the demo (I have MUCH studying yet to do, including making normal people-sized steps instead of leaping and bounding about like a freaking gazelle), I will be selling prints and comics at my table in the vendor hall of the convention.

I don't think you need a ticket for the outdoor show, but if you wanna come hang out with me and check out my wares you should think about investing in one. :)


To Far Away Times...

Even though I haven't been drawing Geeks in Love, I've still been drawing!  My fellow "Made in the 80's" geeks should appreciate this one...

Photobucket

This is Crono and Marle from "Chrono Trigger" (originally for SNES).  [link]

This was a birthday gift for my husband, as Chrono Trigger just so happens to be his favorite game and this his favorite scene.

I love you, Beau, and celebrate the day you came into the world before coming into my life.  <3

Friday, August 19, 2011

Sorry. :(

Sorry for the lack of updates, Geeks.  My home office has been occupied for a bit now, incurring some difficulties and interruptions in my normal drawing schedule.  Also, I just started some classes so getting used to that.  Please bear with me.  My schedule has been insane since June, but I will be a normal schedule soon!

Dealing With Trolls

troll
 noun /trōl/ 
trolls, plural

1.  A mythical, cave-dwelling being depicted in folklore as either a giant or a dwarf, typically having a very ugly appearance

2.  One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument.




So I'm excited to say I just recently received my very first troll!  And let me tell you, obvious troll was obvious.

My first reaction to the comment (directed at my recently self-published Narcissus comic) was that of "WTF?"  My next reaction was to take a deep breath and glean the foulness for usable criticism.  After none could really be found nor any real creativity, I recognized the repeated use of the same 4-letter word and wondered what it would read like if the curses were replaced with words of a more giggle-worthy nature.  The above comic (breaking away from the usual format) was the result.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, because now I can't help but laugh.

Gettin' Down on Friday

Attention!  "Geeks in Love" will henceforth be updating every week on FRIDAYS.  That is all.

(Think about fun.)

San Diego Comic-Con International

That's right, folks! Next week is the con of cons that everyone's been waiting for and I will be there with a table.

You can find me @ Small Press #N-2. I'll be jamming at the table with my fellow artist buddy, DJ Welch (a.k.a. Dark Kenjie) [link]!
Photobucket
We'll be near the Bayside lobby with the escalators that go up to the panel floor and the bathrooms, so you really have no excuse not to stop by.

*I should have some newer full bleed prints, the old bordered prints, and 100 issues of my Narcissus Short-Comic! Each issue will be hand-numbered, signed, and stamped "first printing" on the interior.

Bonus Robot!

Sorry there's been a lack of updates lately.  Since Fanime-Con in San Jose, we have been hit all at once on both sides with a lot of family emergencies and other obligations.  To be honest, it's been a rather tough time.  So I hope you understand.  I plan to return to weekly updates of "Geeks in Love" next week, and should also be posting my short mythology comic "Blind Follies:  The Tale of Narcissus".

And while these other things like family emergencies aren't very funny, here is something that is...



Here is a sketch Beau did of me for his upcoming spotlight in the "I'm Not The Artist" feature blog created by Darlene (a.k.a. wife of Paul Horn of Cool Jerk Comics).

A lot of my friends and fellow artists and their tireless support systems are featured there, so you should check it out.  It's an amusing and often humorous behind-the-scenes look at those individuals we artists have come to rely on so much that they are often mistaken for the artist themselves.  Read it!

Flavor

For those who are curious, my very favorite cupcake place ever is a little chain in the Sacramento area called Icing on The Cupcake.  (Trust me on this one.  I sample a lot of cake.)

My favorite flavor is the Pucker-Up (lemon cake, lemon jelly filling, and lemon-cream cheese icing).  Beau's favorite is between the Cappuccino or the Beehive (vanilla cake, pure honey Bavarian cream, and honey-almond icing).

While we both love food, we obviously don't always agree on flavor.

As a side note, I did finally try the Neopolitan cupcake after forcing Beau to go on a run during Kintoki-Con, much to envy of my table-neighbors.  And, like all their flavors, it was dee-licious!

Kintoki-Con Sacramento, Jun 18-19

My next convention is actually this weekend at Kintoki-Con in Sacramento June 18-19 (this Sat & Sun), hosted by 4th Dimension Entertainment (4DE), publishers of such lovely titles as Lackadaisy and The Meek (among others).

I'll be at Table #29 in the Artist Alley, selling prints and "Geeks in Love" buttons. Come say hi!

Cattish

Everyday, whenever I come back to the house, no matter how long I've been gone, Lily likes to follow me around yelling.  In fact, yelling happens to be Lily's favorite past time. 

I'm not quite sure what she's always yelling about, or why she feels the need to be so darn loud.  What  I do know is she's the yelliest thing I've ever heard. 

With a meow that mimics both the sound and urgency of "NOW!" I assume it has something to do with being picked up and carted around like a princess on a pillow.  As if it's not enough being the royal cat-carriage, Lily also likes to be talked to and responds by making sounds like a grumpy pigeon.  It's tough to say whether or not these sounds are affirmative or disagreeable.  Again, I don't speak Cattish.

Panda OUT

The continued conversation from last week's strip was interrupted by the quite unexpected.

This is pretty much exactly what happened, I swear.

Let that be a lesson to never underestimate the cute and cuddly.  Pandas are gangster.

Purple



*Part 2 of my previously promised "double dose" of strips this week to make up for my lack of timely updates.

Yeah, every single strip of Geeks in Love comes directly from a conversation we've actually had.  This week's took place on the sidewalk outside the San Jose Convention Center while walking back to Fanime-Con after a dinner around the corner with my buddy D.J. Welch.

D.J.'s a fantastic artist, whose talent would otherwise make other artists weep with envy if he wasn't just so darn nice about it.  He'll also be sharing my table at San Diego Comic-Con International (Small Press #N-2), where I will be premiering my first mythology-inspired short comic "Blind Follies: The Tale of Narcissus."


*Next strip updates Monday and will be a continuation of this conversation.

To The Death

The recent of loss of this wrestling legend and jerky spokesman not only left a hole in the heart of 90's Americana, but also left me personally with bubbling suspicions...

In all seriousness, I do apologize.  The strip, like snappy compressed meat sticks, was done in bad taste.

*Part 1 of my previously promised "double dose" this week to make up for my lack of timely updates.  The next should post tomorrow!

Double Dose

So apparently I'm the lamest webcomic blogger ever and can't seem to keep to an infrequent schedule to save my life.  I'll spare you the excuses, but starting a webcomic without a backlog maybe wasn't the smartest thing to do. 

Remember, kids, make a backlog!  Life will come in and mess things up on occasion, so it's good to be prepared. 

In order to appease the internet Gods for my lack of an update last week and my late update this week, I will be offering up a double dose of Geeks in Love later this week.  There will be Randy Savage, Kool-Aid, and panda girls.  It will be a good time.  Just let me finish up my last day of Fanime-Con here today and get to work on it.

Ooh!  I also met someone yesterday in person that I did not know who reads this thing!  EXCITE!  :D

Also, tomorrow is my birthday.

That is all.

All Things Geeky

Since this webcomic site is sort of a window into my inner-geek and more of a platform for all things geeky, I wanted to share a birthday gift I received recently from my good friend, Amber, inspired by a piece of my childhood...
Amber made the pin on the left for me as a birthday gift, hand embroidered and everything. It also has a nice thick striped fabric on the back.  So super cute!

I unfortunately made the matching monstrosity on the right back when I was a small kid and lover of Secret of Mana (a.k.a. Seiken Densetsu) and Final Fantasy Adventure.

These little guys would hop around with their legless sack bodies lookin' all cute and then I would slash them with my sword. They're usually yellow, but there were pink ones in SoM in this one enchanted forest, I swear.

You can read more about rabites HERE.

I would like to add that the quote typed up on the crafty little ticket there which reads, "Time flows like a river... And history repeats..." is from the opening sequence in Secret of Mana.

I think it's pretty cool.

Civic Doodies...

So I'm still (2-1/2 weeks later) serving on a jury.  I thought we would have finished last week, but not so.  Between this major time-suck and having to get my merchandise ready last-minute for Fanime-Con in San Jose CA this coming weekend (May 27-30), I've been a little busy.

If you haven't guessed already, the strip is late this week.  But I'm working on it!  Will post soon.

*Also, stay-tuned for Part 2 of my interview feature with The Geekery Online.  This one should focus more on my geektitude, so it should be a good time.

Part 1 HERE.

Geekery Online FEATURE!

Hey, geeks!

I recently had the pleasure of doing an interview with Eric Nath of The Geekery Online, featured in this week's installment of their "Web Comic Fridays"!

You can read the feature HERE.

In other news...  My next convention is Fanime-Con in San Jose CA, one of the largest anime conventions in California, by fans for fans. It's also next Friday through Monday (27-30).

I'll be selling prints at Table #T271, so please stop by and wish me a happy birthday (it's on the 31st). Hope to see you there!

Squidsbury Rules

Being an artist means you see a face in everything (or maybe I'm thinking schizophrenia).  Either way, I couldn't help but notice that the wall-mounted coat rack next to our front door resembles to me some sort of street fighting cephalopod.

Considering that, needed preparations for Fanime-Con at the end of the month, a deadline on my short comic to premier at San Diego Comic-Con, and the fact that I have been selected for and am currently serving up to 3 weeks on a jury, I hope you can forgive me for this strip (which is quite obviously half-assed).  I assure you, I am putting double my ass's effort into some pretty great stuff.

Vampires In Space

When Beau's deep in thought, it's not always about anything that matters.  Here we have a prime example of one of these occasions.

I honestly don't know what was sillier, the idea of vampires exploring space, or the fact that this lead to an extended and quite serious debate.

Seriously, think about it... Vampires are immortal.  Enduring the perils of space should be no issue.  I mean, do they even need air?  Yet again, is it all solar light from which they are banished?  Or just Earthly light?  And what about a food source?  I'm assuming this would only be plausible if a synthetic blood source was somehow available, as humans aren't as readily available in space.  This raises another question...  What happens to vampires that drink alien blood?

Questions, questions...

Monday, May 2, 2011

An Oldie But a Goodie

Truth be told, "Geeks in Love" was not my first webcomic strip.  This may need some explaining...

Many years ago, before Beau and I were even dating (2003-ish), I made this for him.

You see, Beau and I met online back in 2000 over a conversation about Final Fantasy music.  I lived in Southern California at the time, while Beau lived over 2000 miles away in Pennsylvania.  After many years of casual online friendship, akin to a geeky version of "You've Got Mail", Beau finally made the big move to live with his uncle in Northern California.  During that time, he got a job working computer retail where he spotted a top o' the line surge protector on sale after rebate for two whole bucks.  He was so excited about it, he couldn't wait to call me:

Beau:  "...and it was only two bucks!"

Me:  "You only have your lamp plugged into it right now, don't you?"


Beau:  "Uh, no..."

But I totally called it.

Unsightly

This week's strip is about the aesthetics of eating crackers.

While the rest of the world eats their crackers right side up, only Beau turns the salt-side down so he can cover the bottom with cheese.  Why?  It is apparently unsightly.  Now I've always known Beau leaned toward the side of eccentric, but what did I honestly expect from a man who proclaims "owning a dirigible" as a lifelong goal?

I often swear, a bag of money and a twiddled mustache and he'll then be his very own brand of super villain.

It's A Man's World, Part 2













So while I was drawing the last strip, a young man at the cafe approached me who also seemed to be interested in the world of comics. We actually had a fairly pleasant conversation, as I am always willing to dispense the very (VERY) little of comic making I know to anyone that can use it.  This went on for a few minutes until (what I assumed was) an awkward attempt at flirtation that went completely over my head.

What can I say?  I've been married for a while now and I am the worst flirter on the planet.  I was never really good at it beforehand (despite trying), and 5 years without practice certainly doesn't help in recognizing this often frenzied mating ritual.

It was then that I realized the irony of the conversation therein directly related to that previous strip and gave further evidence as to my plight (as well as virtues) of being female.

---

Just FYI, the strip might look a little different next week.

In an effort to save myself time and attempting a cleaner look, I'm going to try and draw the next strip completely using my tablet PC.  We'll see what happens.

Thursday, April 7, 2011

It's A Man's World













So yeah...  This actually tends to happen a lot.  I'd say about 2 out of every 3 people that walk up to my table at any given convention think that Beau is the artist, despite the 5 ft banner hanging above our heads with my name on it.  If my name were any bigger, it would seriously be treading into dangerous M. Night Shyamalan territory; and no one wants that.  Also, I don't really think Beau looks much like a "Sarah", but that may just be my own opinion.  Even with the recent swell of female readers and convention attendees in recent years, it sometimes makes me wonder...  Is the world of comics still a man's world?

Truthfully, it doesn't really bother me that much.  I'm just glad people are recognizing and appreciating the artwork.  :)

EDIT:  I would like to add that Beau never takes credit for any of my work (even though he is essential to my success).  He wanted me to draw him reacting in the last panel, but I didn't want to have to draw another figure cuz I'm really sick right now.  Cool?  Cool.

The Nerdflu

Hey, geeks!  Just wanted to let you know there WILL be a real Geeks in Love post this week.  I'm halfway done with the new strip, so it should only be a few days late.  I'm just really super sick in bed from all the contact at WonderCon.  Hopefully, I won't die or something like those aliens in "War of The Worlds" so I can actually make my updates.  I'm going to focus on more Geeks in Love in the next coming weeks to get a back log going so that things like this don't happen.

Dinosaurs SO Eat Burritos

Couldn't get a strip done in time, so here's a drawing of a dinosaur eating a caveman burrito!

Sorry for the lack of updates, guys.

I've been super busy and stressed out dealing with some financial and family stuff at home in addition to getting ready for WonderCon in San Francisco.

In case you didn't know, I'll be there pimping Geeks in Love and selling some sweet $1 buttons.

I'll also be selling $5 prints of many of the pieces from my main gallery (lunakenei.deviantart.com), some original artwork (which is a rare opportunity for peeps who are into that sort of thing), and doing quick commission sketches @ Artist Alley table #169, in the back row.

Nut Allergy













This is my friend, Sara (no "H").  She is supposedly allergic to nuts, having been diagnosed in early childhood by her mother (who, I'll add, is a nurse).  I'm not clear on the details of the diagnosis, but unless an actual allergy test was administered, I have my doubts...  Especially after witnessing Sara unknowingly consume an almond-riddled slice of icecream cake and not die on the spot.

Halfway through the slice she exclaimed, "Wow, these chocolate chips are really good!"

Our friends that bought the cake flashed her a puzzled look, before finally replying, "No chips.  Those are almonds."

Sara immediately dropped her fork and clutched her chest in what appeared to be an anaphylactic panic.  Beau and I waited intently, car keys at the ready and the nearest hospital mapped out in our heads.  As the minutes ticked by and questions like "How is your breathing?" finally waned, it appeared Sara would thankfully live to have peanuts try to murder her face another day (and they will).

Bear Come At Me

"QUESTION.  What kind of bear is best?"

This one might be a bit late in terms of pop culture, but I had only just recently learned of the "Come at me, Bro" internet meme made popular by the ever classless antics of Jersey Shore.

After a real conversation over sushi, in which Beau once again offered up more evidence that he's actually some sort of general knowledge-cataloging robot, I could only imagine what kind of idiot would go about aggravating a supposedly docile bear.  Also, bears are hilarious.

Power Bracelet













Link has since ripped apart and devoured the power bracelet.  I'm sure this was in a maddened effort to somehow absorb its strength.  After a few days of worrying, considering having the vet pump his stomach (which would most likely be unsuccessful according to the vet's advice), contemplating expensive and invasive surgery that could cost us up to $3000 we did not have, and finally helpless crying, Link eventually coughed up half the bracelet, leaving the rest to emerge in what was indeed a very powerful duece.  I wasn't there at the time, but I'm sure this was the sound it made:  CLICK

A Keeper


Ok, this is the last webcomic within a webcomic for a while, I promise.  Beau actually said that regarding the GiL header up there and it was just too good (and sweet) to pass up.

Speaking of sweet, that cake slice on my table is an actual cake plushie I had custom made at my very first convention.  I wish I could remember the girl's name or website, because it really is a quality piece of felt work and embroidery!

For those of you who hadn't already guessed by my willingness to commission an inedible cake, I am quite the food geek.  I even started a photo album of amazing food I've either made or consumed at restaurants entitled "Why I'm a Hobbit."  Although I enjoy cultivating a wide range of tastes, cake just so happens to be one of my favorite things to geek about.  My favorite cake of all time is any combination of chocolate and strawberry.  My mom actually used to make me chocolate cake with strawberry icing in the shape of a heart every year on my birthday.  And later a friend of mine made me chocolate cake and actually put strawberries into the chocolate icing.  If they ever made a chocolate-strawberry cake at my cake joint of choice, I would probably have to move in and eat only that until my teeth fell out or I became diabetic.

*Next week's strip promises to be a true tribute to geekdom!

Boring

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody!  And what better day to premier a comic about a loving pair geeks?  In this episode we see just how easy it is to come up with material when you make a comic about yourself!  ...Er, at least it seemed like it would be.

New strips should be available every Monday starting...  Now!  Enjoy.
