My it's been a busy end of the year! Family visiting, friends visiting, Christmas, New Years, and now Taiyoucon (an anime convention) at the end of this week! It will be the last convention that I attend for a while. It's sad because it's only my second convention, but I need the time to work on volume 2, so I'm hoping that you'll forgive me. ^_^ The second volume of Orange Crows is due this year. I won't give a specific date yet because I personally believe that it sucks to get a release date, and then have it get pushed back multiple times. So the announcement of the actual volume 2 release will be given once I'm confident that it will be the solid date.
You may be asking "what is taking so long to get a second volume out?" Well again the answer is that I can't get into all of the specifics for legal reasons, but the book was on hold for a bit because of choices made by Tokyopop. Recently I've been in contact with them and I have permission to continue the story and bring the next part of the Orange Crows saga to you! But it will take time to get all of the pages drawn out and inked all by myself. It's by no means impossible, and I'm more than ready to take on the task. But the task itself is going to take time. So I hope that you all will continue to be patient and show your support. And thank you everyone who sends comments and feedback to me. Again, I really appreciate that my humble book has some fans who are excited to see what happens next in the world of witches and warlocks!
Lastly, I wanted to ask you all what you would like to see from these updates. Do you enjoy seeing the concepts with Crow Sketch? Are there other things that you all want me to share with you? Please make sure to leave a comment on the blog, or send your suggestions through the Contacts page. Now that the holiday season is over, these updates will be more frequent!
And lastly lastly, I drew up a design for Orange Crows t-shirts! I wanted to share them with you all. Perhaps I'll do some colored ones later, but the first one is black and white. I hope that you all enjoy! And I'd like to wish you all a late Merry Christmas and Happy New Years (or a late 'happy holidays!' for those of you who don't celebrate any of those)! Till next time!
