Anime Expo at C12/C13 + other stuff

Sat Jun 28, 2014, 3:18 PM



I'll be going to ANIME EXPO on July 3-6!  Please come find my friends and me in the Artist Alley at the B/C 9-14 area as indicated on the map below if you're going :D



In other news, I've started updating Carciphona again and I'll be spending most of my time drawing book 5, so sorry in advance if I won't have any finished art to post here for a while  ): I really want to make a new art book this year though so I'll try hard to put some time in drawing new illusts, it will just depend on how smoothly book 5 goes and how fast I can get it over with to work on something else LOL I NEED MORE THAN 1 LIFE THERE IS SO MUCH I WANT TO DO IN THIS NARROW CORNER OF ART, LET ALONE OTHER SUBJECTS

I've also been conflicted between drawing originals vs drawing league of legends stuff, I have a lot of ideas that work for both, but whenever I think of something league related to draw, I feel like I should be sticking my own characters in there instead (I can easily swap in/out my chars with any other chars with any of my paintings) just because I have this feeling of responsibility ingrained in me for some reason that I should draw originals. I think I can create interesting pieces/scenes regardless of what characters I draw, I know I can create scenes with fandom characters that even those not in the fandom will enjoy (because I do that with my own characters already), so I know my drawings will be somewhat meaningful no matter who I draw. but whenever it's fanart instead of my own characters, I feel like its intrinsic value falls (while its monetary value rises) and it causes me the unnecessary guilt of "selling out". I wish I knew how to not feel like that because it's obstructing productivity for no good reason q_q but it's been part of my values for such a long time because of what I've worked on all these years that it's hard to overcome ]:

Anime North at Comic Market!

Mon May 19, 2014, 10:14 AM



My gf, friends and I will all be at Anime North this weekend at Comic Market!! I’ve mentioned before I am at the pro plaza instead but apparently pro plaza is just tables inside the comic market this year HAHA… we’ll be at the far back island (entrance I believe is at the top of this map) at PP08, G5 and G6, pls don’t forget about us ;v;

I will also be selling some riven prints through the art show store, Gallery Momiji! because pro plaza forbids me from selling fanart and I had promised that I will sell Riven at AN, I put my riven prints with the gallery store (basically a print shop) instead at the art show. So if you’re looking for one, go into Gallery Momiji (should be located near the comic market) and look for the gallery store!

TCAF @ table 252!

Tue May 6, 2014, 10:30 AM



I'll be at Toronto Comic Arts Festival on Saturday and Sunday on the second floor, at table 252! TCAF is held at the Toronto Reference Library at Yonge and Bloor, it's FREE for everyone and has lots of amazing people like Jayd of littlefoolery, Gigi D.G. of Cucumber Quest, Amei Zhao of Nameless and the Scientist and more!! If you're in the area, hop on the subway and come walk around then maybe have a night out downtown afterwards or something for the weekend :D I'll be selling my books mainly, but I will bring some prints too if anyone wants to pick up anything! I won't be able to sell fanart at Anime North due to being in the Pro Plaza so if you wanted to buy my fanart (namely riven) or art book there, you will have to wait until Fan Expo or come to TCAF this weekend for it.

I should be right in front of the entrance in the salon on the 2nd floor according to this map, with a dinky 3ft table : D

Carciphona 4 Preorder starts March 1

Thu Feb 20, 2014, 9:56 AM





Book 4 is finally off the printing press and on route to me, and knowing its arrival date I can finally announce a date for preorders. It will start on Saturday, March 1 AT 8PM EST (GMT-5) at my online shop, shilin.storenvy.com. There will be a small bonus for the first 50 preorders as well for those who are looking for a little something extra, but for everyone else, it will last 1 month as usual.


For those in Toronto and are going to Toronto Comicon on March 7-9, I will have ~50 copies there that you can get like a month before everyone else without shipping hassles. There won’t be any preorder discounts for those though ):


Thanks for your patience this year, and check back on March 1!!

All 5 new prints from me, debuted at 2013 conventions, now on sale as a set with FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING at my shop!! Includes 2 pieces that have not been posted yet, Click here to get yours :D

:star: shilin.storenvy.com :Star:

In other news, sorry Carciphona volume 4 is taking so long to be released this year ;-; On top of the completion delays, because the dates got pushed so close to Lunar New Year, my printer has a large amount of orders to fill and my books are taking longer than usual to print. I'm so sad that I said it'd be available in a month's time for like 2 months now and I still can't put up preorders yet. But I've split up my orders (new books and reprints) to different printing companies, and the plan is to have them all printed before Lunar New Year (during which all companies go on a 1 week holiday). If I can get them shipped out before the holiday, they should arrive at the beginning of march. If not, they'd probably be here for April. RIDICULOUS RIGHT?? I'm totally not printing this time of the year again LMAO... so preorders will most likely go up in Feb or March!!

I am also going to Sakura Con (I think??? I haven't heard from them yet) and Toronto Comicon, and will most likely have copies there. So if you're going, you will likely be able to get a copy from the con before I can even mail out preorders :D

20% off books!

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 4, 2013, 6:33 PM





Mangamagazine has launched its own marketplace, allowing authors to sell their stuff through them, and they're having a 20% OFF discount for all items until next week! that means you can get a set of all 3 Carciphona books for $24, almost 50% OFF regular price. This does NOT come out of the authors' pockets, rather funded by MangaMagazine itself, so if you've wanted some books from me (and other artists) and want to save even more, this is your rare chance as there is no way I can personally provide this kind of prices ever.

please also check out CP on MM as MM pays its premium authors for keeping up their updates based on the amount of traffic the story brings to its website. Premium comics require a subscription of $2.99 to access, but MM has some interesting exclusive series that update regularly to show for the price!

**I also have a few 24x36 large, framed posters in GALLERY MOMIJI (in the same area) for auction. I signed one of them but not all in case people don't want stuff on their posters. If you would like a large framed version of my posters signed, feel free to bid on them and bring them to me and I can sign them for you ^^ **

:thumb370112055: by Gladiant

Picking Just one winner was incredibly hard, but talentcall's setting only allowed one to be chosen ): I'm really happy everyone has put so much effort into their piece and I hope you are all proud of your work regardless of it being glorified with the status of a winner. Thanks for your participation and hope you had fun :D

Contest voting is ON!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 25, 2013, 11:54 AM



The deadline for the contest was yesterday, and all submitted entries are now accepting votes until May 1! Go check out these fantastic entries and vote for your favourites :D There will be 2 winners: one decided by the judge (me) for the grand prize of $100, and and one people's choice prize of Carciphona Package (includes Carciphona volumes 1-3 and Veloce's Necklace) I've already decided on a winner myself, though it was a very tough choice between 4 personal favourites and I wish I could award everyone something ): please go cast your vote and help the best entry win that second prize!

I've been asked whether winning popular vote will disqualify the piece from a chance to be the grand prize winner, and the answer is no. I have already chosen a winner, and if voting yields the same winner for the 2nd prize, then that person will receive both prizes. Ideally I would love to award as many people as possible, but I'm sure no one would like to be disqualified for the grand prize just because they did a good job with the piece and got too many votes haha~

:star:talentcall.com/competition/2407:star:

Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I hope you enjoyed working on your piece with this theme regardless of the contest ^^ I prefer making contest themes that are open and beneficial even without the contest context, so that those who wanted to enter would be more motivated to give it their all for their own benefit, and that their entry would still be a meaningful representation of their art work even long after the contest has been over.

TalentCall Art Contest!

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 28, 2013, 10:21 AM




- A R T C O N T E S T ! -
TalentCall is holding an art contest on my behalf! Submit an entry (or entries) before April 23 based on the contest guidelines, and have a chance to win $150 in cash and prizes (:

Click the link for the contest page!

:star: :star: talentcall.com/competition/2407 :star: :star:

NOTE: their terms and condition states that contestants must be 18 YEARS OR OLDER to be able to receive prizes, so I'm sorry to anyone younger who wants a shot at the prizes ): They are providing the prizes so I can't really change that part of the rules. You can still go for the theme for fun if you like of course, I set it to be self beneficial and open rather than a fanart contest for that purpose ^^

Mangamagazine and Tapastic

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 13, 2013, 5:46 PM



I have risen from the grave to bring some news from Shilinland!

Right now, I submit my Carciphona to 2 sites which pay their authors for bringing in traffic to their site, Tapastic and Mangamagazine. My ultimate goal is always to get readers to read my story on my own website of course, but I would like to see if branching out a little can pay off in a way that helps me focus on moving the story forward by paying me on a regular basis. If you want to support CP without having to spend any money on me, that is now possible by clicking the balloons below and visiting these sites! The more views my manga receives, the more I will be paid proportionately (: And of course as always, please share my story with your friends if you enjoyed it ^^


Mangamagazine: www.mangamagazine.net/manga-an…
Tapastic! tapastic.com/series/260

Carciphona.com is still the most up to date site for Carciphona with multiple languages, preloading functions, background information, illustration, fanart, and anything else that I've ever made for Carciphona though! As well, I've finished thumbnailing all 150 pages of volume 4 and I will be starting to work on pages soon!! hopefully March or April will be another double update month c:
