Work In Progress

Krista is a Christian girl who is just starting 9th grade in a new school. She wants to show others the love of Christ, but she quickly learns it's not quite as simple as it seems. In other words, wearing a cross doesn't make you a Christian. The title of the comic is based on Philippians 1:6 - "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." This is a shojo-style comic (in my opinion) with some romance, drama, and comedy. It reads from left to right.


Been a while...

Hey all,
I know it's been a long time. I just want to let you know I'm still around and still intend on working on "Work In Progress", but it is sort of on hiatus right now, as I'm in the process of moving. So much yet to do before I can settle down and draw again!

But I have no intention of letting WiP go unfinished. I have so much more of a story to tell. Please bear with me, and hopefully I'll be back soon. I know I've been saying that now for a couple of years, but it really has been hard to get anything done. I will get it done, though!

Thanks again for all of your support, and hope to be back soon!

Hey all! Sorry I've been so quiet. I've had a lot going on, but I'm trying really hard to keep up on "Work In Progress". Currently I'm working on page 13, which again has a lot of outdoor scenery, and that always takes me a long time to draw. I can't wait to get past these few pages so I can concentrate more on the characters than the scenery again! :P

In case you're interested, there is a Facebook page that you can like for WiP as well - . There I've posted character profiles and updates as well.

And yes, I should've mentioned sooner that my computer has been resurrected. It turned out not costing very much to fix, thanks to a friend who was willing to do it for me. It was back up and running in about 3 weeks. Thank goodness for that! :P

Other than that, the only thing to mention is that we have a new addition to our house - a kitten we adopted at Christmas, named Stewie. If you're interested in seeing videos of him, you can see them at . He's a little clown, that's for sure! :)

Some Unfortunate News...

Well, sad to say, after about 16 months, my laptop may have breathed its last. From what I can tell, the motherboard needs to be replaced if I want to be able to use it again. Right now my main concern is getting the last three weeks of non-backed up material off of the hard drive, which can be done - I just need the right parts to do it, which I don't have yet.

Anyway, because of that, "Work in Progress" is once again going to have to go on hold until I can get to what I was last working on 2 days ago before the computer died. *sigh* It just seems like something just keeps getting in the way of my moving forward on it.

In the meantime, I'm going to try to re-acclimate myself to my old desktop and tablet and try to use that to draw with. Having been spoiled by the tablet laptop, it's going to take some time. I also got a really nice set of Prismacolor pencils for Christmas, so now's a good time to work with them, too.

Please forgive me, everyone. I keep having excuse after excuse for not having new pages up, and even I'm starting to get frustrated with myself. I hope you'll bear with me anyway, and thanks for sticking with me for this long.

Sorry for taking so long!!

I just wanted to say I'm sorry my comic has been moving slowly since I got back started on it! I've had a couple of other projects to work on, plus my mother got herself a minor concussion so I've had to help her out with stuff. On top of that, page 11 includes some landscapes - which I'm really not that good at drawing, so it's kind of taking me a while.

But thank you so much for hanging in there with me. Hopefully page 11 will be up this week! :)

Back to work!

Ok all, NY Anime Festival is over! I actually sold 7 copies of my comic there. Now, to some of you, that may not be a big deal, but it is to me! Last year I only sold 2, as Christian comics are not all that popular in my part of the country. So I am thrilled!

Anyway, now that that is over and all my leftovers are posted on my Etsy (including copies of my comic), I can get back to work on drawing more pages of chapter 2! I did manage to pick up something at the con, as I am sick this week (hard not to, in a crowd of 100,000 people), so it'll be a little slow getting going again, but I will work on it as soon as I can!

Thanks again for following me! :P

Update and NYAF...

Hey all,
Just to give you an update, NY Anime Festival is next weekend - Oct. 8-10, where I will have table G-11 in the NYAF Artist Alley (downstairs). After that I will be trying to get back to my comic, but it may be slow at first because a few other things have come up. I'm going to have to divide my time for a few weeks after the con, so please be patient with me. I'll get the ball rolling again as soon as possible!

Thanks again everyone!

Just a quick update to let you know what I'm working on...

Ok, so NY Anime Festival is one month from today. I'd better get cracking if I'm going to have anything worth selling! All of the chibis I've uploaded here will be made into charms that I will be putting up in my Etsy shop once I get them made. I don't know yet when that will be, but at this point it looks like it will be after NYAF.

Secondly, Chapter 1 of "Work In Progress" is in print! You can buy a copy if you want one at IndyPlanet.

Thanks again for following me, and for being patient with me while the story is on hold!

Taking a break...

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for following Work In Progress!

I'm just writing this update to let you know that the time has come for me to take a break in order to work on things for NY Anime Festival, which is on October 8-10. So unfortunately, Work In Progress has to go on hold for a little bit, but I will get back to it as soon as I am able.

Thanks again, and I hope you're enjoying it!
