You can now pre-order the Wolves and Men graphic novel!  If you pre-order now within this pre-order period you will not only get the complete comic in book form with extras, but you will also receive a 3x5 pencil sketch of the heroine and/or hero and a cutie bookmark to go with it.  The book has already been sent to the printer, so the turn-around time should be about a month after I get and check the proof.  The pre-order price is $12 + shipping, and you can order it directly from my website here: www.genkigirl.com/wolvesandmen…

Thank you in advance if you pre-order because it will really help me out a lot! :3

After sitting on a short story idea for well over a year, I've decided it was time that it saw the light of day.  I intend to start my new short "Of Wolves and Men" this spring and it will be about 2-3 chapters long, which primarily depends upon how I wish to divide up the script.  I can't give an exact start date just yet though because...da da da....I'm going to France!  But more than likely it will start after I get back in mid April...though I do have a little time left before I leave, so who knows.

Anyway please visit the site and check out the cover preview in the meantime! www.genkigirl.com/wolvesandmen…;

I am crossposting this here from my blog since it's always interesting to hear what other artists think.....I've been thinking about this a lot lately.  As an artist who has gone to art school and has been exposed to and required to work with different mediums, I have found over time that I love to work in different mediums all the time.  Though I don't think this is particularly unique to only artists who have gone to school, but it does seem that those who have gone, are definitely adept with different mediums.  Whether or not the joy of working with different mediums came from that or not, I suppose are another matter.

My point is though, that I not only love to draw and paint, but I also enjoy sculpting, woodworking, sewing, printmaking and so on.  When I get to caught up in only one medium, for example drawing comics day in and day out, I really start to miss the other mediums to the point at which where I will stop drawing altogether to work exclusively in another medium until I get my fill of that medium.  I'm sure this is probably the wrong way to go about things, as extremes of everything are bad, but on the other hand it becomes increasingly difficult to juggle a variety of works in a variety of mediums all at once, not to mention I just don't have the workspace to do such things.  I guess ultimately though I just crave variety above all else and if my desire for variety isn't satiated, I get bored.

The one thing I don't get though is how other artists can seem to do all things all at once.  I realize it's probably just a misconception, as I'm sure that whereas an artist who may be heavy on doll sculpting and casting may do some drawing, but the bulk of their work is in their sculpts, and they probably do not run a webcomic or anything nearly as time consuming.  Contrarily-wise, most steadfast webcomic artists don't generally have a side business of sewing doll clothes or plush either, though they may dabble for the general enjoyment of it.  Is this a matter of having your cake and eating it too?  I hope not, because I like to create webcomics and I like to sculpt dolls and make miniatures and such.  I want to be able to do both and I should be able to do both.  The thing is though, that once you begin dividing your time between the different things you create, it seems that all things suffer, and I don't mean suffer in quality, but suffer in quantity, and perhaps to a certain extent cohesiveness.  Some things seems to require your sole focus to be successful, like webcomics for example.  If you aren't there to update regularly a couple times a week, then you cannot expect to be successful even though your art and story may be to the nines.

So ultimately this is my biggest frustration as far as art is concerned, trying to balance working with different mediums and feeling unsuccessful at all things when I don't have enough work to show for either.  Enjoyment of your work is important though, if you aren't enjoying what you are doing then why do it at all?  Not to mention the fact that as your enjoyment wanes so does the quality of your work, and producing crap just to produce is not the answer.  So how do other artists feel about these things if you enjoy working in different mediums?  Does anyone else understand these feelings or am I just rambling?

OK, first off Patches has been updated, page 7 of chapter 5 is now online!  Also a new fanart has been posted in the gallery, and I've posted a prototype of a Patches bookmark I am working on to have up for sale...maybe some time next week. :)

Finally I think I am going to stop making a journal post here every time I update.  I hope it doesn't bother anyone, but having one less update posting to write out will be helpful, and I don't want to be spamming up your message centers.  On the plus side though, the comic now has a RSS Feed and you can always follow me on Twitter: twitter.com/Tsukiyono &nb… will always be making progress posts and update posts there.  Or another alternative to getting a notice of updates is to join the mailing list: tsukiyo.notifylist.com/genkiml…

Anyway this doesn't mean I will never post Patches news here again or anything.  If there is something big going on or a big change I will definitely post it here.

I am preparing to re-do and add to the character profiles for Patches.  If there is anything you would like to see in regards to the character profiles, let me know!  I also opened up a chat topic about this on my forums as well: genkigirl.com/phpBB2/viewtopic…

Page 44 of chapter 4 is now online. :D

OK, so what's up with OnlineComics these days?  From all appearances it looks like they haven't added any new comics since August of last year, and there are a lot of dead comics in the archives...and by dead I mean you go to a page that isn't a comic page. Beyond that the whole place isn't as active as it used to be.  Is OnlineComics dying in lieu of ComicSpace? To be so frank that I'm rude, I think ComicSpace is kind of a load of doo-doo.  

Remember the days of OCAD, which was fashioned after Tinami?  Then OCAD died and OnlineComics sort of rose up to take it's place. OnlineComics was like thee webcomic directory, to lose something like that is well, crappy.  Since I've kinda been out of it for a year, maybe I've missed a new upcoming directory site that everyone is flocking to? Dude, I seriously need a online comic megadirectory to go to.  I like having fresh and organized comic links to go to and peruse. Am I the only one who feels this way?  Or are directories dying out or something?  I needs answers!

Well the big news is that my domain transfer is now done.  It apparently happened in the wee hours of the morning last night and as far as I can tell there was no downtime.  Everything is working exactly like it was previously, so yay!  I'm happy that is over and I won't be wasting any more money on network solutions.  They charge at least 50% more for a domain registry than godaddy. :(

Well, that's it for this journal entry!

I wanted to make mention that I have begun transferring my domain to godaddy, because it is way cheaper than my current registrar.  Since I've never transferred a domain in this way, I don't know exactly what all it entails, but hopefully there will be little to no down time for the site.  Anyway if the site goes away for a little bit, don't be alarmed, as it is only moving.  I'll be sure to make an announcement when everything is complete!

Page 35 of chapter 4 is now up.  I hope you like it. :)


I know I already announced that I have taken the 100 top Romance Comics site down because of the amount of spam I got through it. Well there was that and I would have like 50+ sites sign up daily, most of which were not comic sites, and I realized I was spending too much time maintaining the dumb thing when I really didn't have the time or desire to do so.

However I still really like the idea of having some sort of romance comic link site of some sort.  I'm not sure how I can accomplish a site that links together romance comic sites, and maintains itself.  The wordpress engine is pretty strong, has good spam protection, and can fairly easily maintain itself, but how it could be applied to such a task is another question.  Anyway I may decide to start up another romance comic link site, but we'll see, I have some goals to meet with Patches first.
