It's that time again! Time for the 2014 GMI Awards!!
This year there are some really great titles in the running so I don't really expect to even place, but it would be really cool if I did. So if you have been reading FaLLEN online and enjoy it, or want to support me, voting for FaLLEN would really help me out. The grand prize is a lot of money, and since I just lost my job when Inkblazers went under (officially closing its doors next month) that would be pretty huge for me.
If you haven't read FaLLEN before, it's up on GMI, and it's also up on my official website at ogawaburukku.com/fallen/eng/ma…
Obviously last year was beyond crappy for me, so I'm hoping this year I can at least get off on the right foot.
In other news...
I will be sending out an update to everyone who pledged on my Kickstarter tomorrow. I'll be including photos of the merchandise and postcards I'm sending out, as well as teaser images for the calendar. I realize it's already January 11th... more on that in the update tomorrow. Other than the calendar, everything else is going smoothly. This week I'll be done with the calendar and have it sent for printing, and AS SOON as that is over I am doing MY FREAKING PRIZE ART COMMISSIONS.
I am probably going to throw in a free chibi or something for you guys because seriously... SERIOUSLY. I can't believe I made you wait so long. I have had sketches ready for inking done since November but one thing led to another with December and I got behind on the calendar work. One of the delays for Kickstarter updates has been because I am STILL waiting for people to answer my survey, haha. That and I just hate spamming people.
If you have sent me a message and I have not responded yet, I am probably not going to respond for a while. I have been so busy I've been forgetting to eat, so emails, notes, messages... all that is going unanswered for a week or so.
Finally, I am doing Comitia on Feb. 1 and my space is B20b, so if you are in Tokyo come on by! I think I will likely have a few posters, postcards, and whatever books I have left over (including Ch. 8) available. Not sure what to expect this time, heh.
Also, I just finished Jurassic Park the book... can I just say the movie was better? It was cool how it filled in a little more info the movie left out, but the movie made the characters more enjoyable. I'm so happy the movie didn't have Lex be the same little brat she was in the book (though they did make her a hacker... because, you know, '90s movie...). I'm looking forward to the retconned 2nd book, though, because I am curious if the movie was blah because of the book or meddling with the script, considering the characters who died in the book did not all meet the same unhappy fate in the first movie.
Sorry, I'm on a Jurassic Park kick.
