Hey kids. I know it's been a while since I updated my DA blog. Honestly I'm not on DA a whole lot anymore, so if y'all want more current and up to date info about my latest projects and appearances, I suggest you stick to my facebook, twitter accounts and my site: www.bwillettcomics.com Don't forget I've also got a Patreon account, so if you want early access and behind the scenes stuff, contributions start at a dollar a month.
Volume 3 of Sorcerer's Apprentice is still a work in progress. I've still got about 2 and a half chapters, as well as some chapter art and editing to do, and I'm aiming to have it available for sale by December. The first six issues of Midnight Menagerie are still available on Comixology and chapter 7 is ongoing. I always recommend getting stuff outside of the web version, because the web version of both comics is a beta. The art looks much better, and is better edited through the print and Comixology versions.
My next convention will be NDK 2016 at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Denver, CO Labor Day weekend. In addition to my table, I'll be doing a panel on making manga Saturday night in Panel Room 4 called 'So You Want to be a Manga-ka, Too?' I also regret to announce that NDK will be my last Artist Alley for a while. After some personal problems, and the fact that after 5 years I've still not made a profit from attending cons, I've decided I need a break from the con circuit to regroup and focus more on my comics. The vast majority of what I sell is art prints based off of other people's properties, and the fact of the matter is I want make money from my characters, not someone else's. With Sorcerer's Apprentice very soon returning to entirely new content, and Midnight Menagerie ending its origin story line, I don't want to spend time making art prints, dealing with prints and copy shops, as well as the stress of making convention deadlines. I love cons but they are a great deal of work and energy. I'll be selling out my entire inventory of fan art prints, goods and comics, and after 2016, focusing exclusively on my own art. Even if I do the occasional fan piece, it'll be for myself, and not for sale.
The only exception to that is commissions. After NDK I will be raising my commission prices. I do this regularly to account for cost of living and supply price increases. So I don't have any time to get commissions now, but any commission orders I get before September 5th will be honored at my old prices, so if I want to lock in that price now, contact me either via DA or my site.
