By day, I'm a Ph.D. student studying volcanoes and earthquakes at the University of Washington, Seattle. By night, I dabble in art to keep myself sane. I recently completed a graphic novel (SkyFall), and am in the process of developing a new one (Shishinkontan).
Wow. So, the last thing I posted on here was in October 2010!? A LOT has happened since then:

• Started Shishin, then had to put it on indefinite hiatus.
• Got engaged
• Finished SkyFall
• Got married (and holy shit it was awesome)
• Went to Maui...

...And now, I'm reconsidering what I want to do about Shishin. It's been a long time since I've drawn a comic page, and I'm out of practice with drawing in general. On top of that, the script (and well, the story in general) needs some serious updating/rewriting.

With my husband's help, we're going to rework the story from scratch. I'm sure a lot of the elements will remain the same, but I'm opening my mind to any necessary changes that need to happen. This means, of course, that I probably won't be drawing full comic pages any time soon.

In the meantime, I'm going to try to occasionally update the Shishin website with behind-the-scenes ideas and sketches. I don't have a schedule in mind yet, and the website itself is in need of some... repair to accommodate the changes I have in mind.

I also need to work on finishing up the print version of SkyFall. I haven't forgotten about it!

And finally... new artwork updates coming soon!

Now that the Skyfall website is owned by spambots, I looked for the archived version but most of the pages are missing.

This did lead me to the print versions of Volume 1 and 2, but it looks like Volume 3 is lost to us.

Is there any chance of Vol.3 being put back online? Or a print version - I would happily pay to find out how the story ended.

It took a little hunting to find you. And the account looks to be dead? :(

I was going thru some old papers and found pics I'd printed from Skyfall. Blast from the past. I'm curious what happened to it. ^-^

Hope you're well, all these years in the future!
