Having a bit of trouble with my business card and self-promo package. I wanted to redo it with a military theme, but I wouldn't have time, not for marks at least. I'm hoping that when I do my portfolio site, it doesn't need to be consistent with the rest of my promotional package because redoing a site would take a lot longer.

Anyway, I ran down to Golden Ages yesterday with [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint and [livejournal.com profile] snowpanda_zero to see if they'd pick up the HS books. The owner didn't exactly seem very interested on the phone, so I didn't go in with very high hopes. Fortunately, he liked the book enough to pick up 3 copies, so it's now available there! Yay! The rest of the staff was super nice though, we kind of stood there for a really long time talking to them.

In any case, I came home a bit later to draw Jojo fanart with absolutely no reference. For any of it. So please excuse any mistakes on both parts.

If, by any chance, you wanted to get the honeysyn book the first time and somehow didn't, then boy do I have news for you!

We managed to print a second run of the book! So if you want to pick it up, here's your chance!

If you really want to read the shpeel again, head on over to my other entry, since it's essentially the same thing.

So if you're interested, please head on over to the SHOP!

Also! If! You haven't received your copy of the book by now, leave me a comment and I'll look into it for you. Note: if you don't live in Canada or the States, your book may take a while to get there, especially if you ordered more than one book.

Anyway, no questions have been asked yet, but if you do have any questions, please first check the F.A.Q. in this entry first. But please remember that some of the questions are no longer applicable, and some have also changed, so this is the... new F.A.Q.


Sold out!!

I have to implore everyone to please, please, please be patient with the shipping time.
Technically, I've only started shipping anything out on the 15th, as that was when pre-orders ended.

If by any chance you decide that you don't feel like waiting after all, please hit me up and I'll refund your payment. Filing a complaint against me is not the way to go, but if you feel that you must do so, then do so and I will promptly refund your payment, no questions asked.

Also, please remember that this is basically me, and me alone (except for the few times I forced my friends to sit and help me stuff envelopes) who's labelling, wrapping, sealing all the envelopes before taking them all down to the post office, one pile at a time to mail them. I can't do it all at once or else I'll end up losing thema all, so I'm slowly going through the list. This is to make sure I don't miss anyone.

Once again, please be patient with the shipping, I'm really sorry that it's taking so long, but one person can only do so much at once.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Thank-you everyone who ordered!
If you haven't preordered, you are still welcome to order a copy, it just won't come with a free postcard.

Thanks again to everyone who ordered!

If you had MAILED your payment, as long as you had mailed it before this post then you're still good
pilot_star: (Default)
Wow, finally, finally, finally, they're DONE.

Books are all done, and they will begin shipping as early as tomorrow.
Haven't pre-ordered yet? Do not fear!


Yep! So put in your order now to get your fabulous fabulousness.

Not sure if this is for you or not? Check out this fabulous customer testimonial!

The Verdict

Jul. 8th, 2008 02:06 pm
pilot_star: (Default)
I'm so sorry for taking such a long time with this, but here's the verdict for grouped shipping. I've tried to find the cheapest way to ship anything.

Also, if you bought one book... it's going surface.


So, how to figure it out?
Each book is 13.99, total the amount of books you want, plus the shipping you want, and add $0.89 to the end (this is for paypal fees), and send the total to pyro.jack@gmail.com (paypal), and I'll mark you down!

Here's a nifty formula for you.

(number of books) x $13.99 + (appropriate shipping) + $0.89 = GRAND TOTAL

And send your grand total (in CAD) to pyro.jack@gmail.com Please also tell me how many books you ordered and which shipping you want, just to make sure I don't screw up.

And, if you want more than 4 books.... talk to me....

Thanks for sticking out with me, everyone!

I just hate it when I dream of waking up. It's like my arms and legs are so heavy and slow, and I'm trying to crawl out of bed and down the stairs, and then I wake up and realize I've made no progress anyway! >:C

Anyway, I drew some mug-shots for the new character profiles for the Character section of HoneySyn (scroll down, keep scrolling).

thumbnail is unrelated )
pilot_star: (Default)
I drew Henry. The self-declared "cool, handsome foil."

You're the protagonist. I'm just the cool, handsome foil. )

Also, I added a bit of info on where to ship cash and money orders for the HoneySyn book if you really can't use paypal, so please scroll down and take a look at the F.A.Q. if that is relevant to your interests.

I still haven't figured out shipping for multiple books yet, but I should be able to do that tomorrow. I hope!

If anyone gives a shit about the webcomic that I run, then here is some news!

We're now taking pre-orders for the (schumie said I have to pitch this well, so I'm gonna pitch it like I would a baseball in the heat of summer) AMAZING, WONDERFUL, FANTASTIC, FABULOUS HONEYSYN VOL 1 TRADE PAPERBACK.

It is FAH-bulous!
It will also be around 130 pages ( a few more, it'll probably end with around 140 pages), of b w interior and coloured cover.
The cost of the FAH-bulous thing is 13.99 CAD plus shipping ($6.40 CAD no matter where you are). For everyone who's asking, this translates to around $20.00 USD, not including paypal's exchange fees.

And, (I forgot to say this last time so I better say it this time) it will also have extras. Lots of them. Like... extra comics, extra information on the main characters and side characters, and little tiddlybits of stuff you probably never knew you wanted to know until you already know it.

And also a short story (essay?) on how the hell Josh got where he did. It's good, I swear on my sister's first born.

AND, (here's the good part) everyone who preorders will also get a free post-card. For free! It's a seekret post card, so it's not made from any of the images you've ever seen. AND IT'S FREE. And it's only for pre-orders, I may sell the post cards after, but I doubt it.

So, if you're interested, click this mighty button!
Read more... )

The book is now sold out! Thanks for all your support!

Note: And if you want to buy more than one copy (huh? huh? *wink wink nudge nudge*), please hang in there until I figure out how much shipping costs. I'll try to post more information ASAP!

Oh yes, if you're wondering why it says "by autobrig" on the cover, it's because schumie and I are collectively known as autobrig.
...Yeah, I know that we didn't tell anyone, but now you know, if you ever wanted to know. :/


Lots of people have been asking me the same questions, so I figured I'd make an F.A.Q. Please take a look!

I live in (insert country of choice), how much do I have to pay for shipping?
The shipping is $6.40 no matter where in the world you are.

How much is the book in USD?
CAD and USD are about at par right now, and the book costs around $20.00 total, not including paypal exchange rates.

How much is the book in (insert currency of choice)?
To find out how much the book costs in any other currency, please use this nifty Universal Currency Converter

How long are preorders up for?
Honestly, I'm not very sure. Right now it's looking to be the middle of July

How long will the order take to get here?

I can't use paypal, can I send a money order and/or cash?
Sure, please send $20.39 CAD (or USD, if it's too big of a hassle to get CAD) to:

530 Bournemouth Crescent
North Vancouver, BC
V7H 2G5

Please please please make sure to put your return address/shipping address on it, or else you won't get your book! And also write the date on it, so anything sent before the pre-order cutoff date can still count as a preorder.

Also: Please do not send me anthrax! I mean it!
You're welcome to send me post cards and doodles and stuff if you feel like it though, I'd really like that. :D

Can I get it autographed?
This is tricky. As Schumie and I live on opposite sides of the border, you'll have to wait until August to get it signed by the both of us. If you only want it to be signed by me (Nuu), then leave me a message with which email you paid with. If you want it to be signed by both of us, leave me a message with a note that you don't mind waiting until august, and tell me which email you paid with.

How much of the story is in the book?
The book contains chapters 1-5.

Can I pre-order and pick it up at Anime Evolution (and skip the shipping?)
Sure you can! Just send $14.88 (the extra money is to cover the paypal fee that was covered in shipping) to pyro.jack@gmail.com and make a note in it that you want to pick it up at the con, and I'll save you a copy!

Can I pay you at the con?
Sure, but you'll have to do a monkey dance so that I know that you preordered and you're not trying to gyp me.

How long will you be selling the book?
Until it sells out? I honestly have no idea how long that would take.

Aaand, that seems to be it. Hopefully I've answered your question!

I finally got around printing the posters!
It was funny when I had to phone in to pay for them.

Me: Uhh, I'd like to pay for an order I placed?
Him: Are you [Nuu]?
Me: Yes?
Him: Did you design these?
Me: NO. I mean yes. I mean... *squeak*
Him: They're really nice.
Me: Uh, thanks. Uh.. *squeak*

But I eventually managed to tell him my credit card info, and in the "delivery instructions" I had written "PUT INTO OPAQUE BAG".

I got them delivered to a friend, who said the delivery person gave her a weird look. Then she told me there were puppies inside the bag.


Oh, right. If you'd like to buy a poster, please head on over to the STORE

I never have anything interesting to say.

Well, I wandered into class around noon and finish my magazine cover, and now I should be working on more detailed thumbnails for my diagram I have to hand in on Tuesday. <__>

I wanted to get some HS pics printed as 11 x 17 posters (I have a few of them) but no matter what I just couldn't bring myself to walk into the store and go "CAN YOU PRINT ME PICS OF THESE TWO ANIMU GUYS KISSING."
Seriously. I just can't. x___x It's... man, I really need to work on my fragile and shivering confidence, because I have none. I guess I could get a friend to do it for me, but my friends are busy enough that they don't have time to be poking around picking up prints for me.

In any case, more doodles cause no one cares about my life.

retards )

And the other thing, I was sketching a character from Megiddo.

Mr. Hayden )

Edited to add: I'M SO HUNGRYYYYYYY

The people in my class were all explaining their tasks/duties to the rest of my class today, and when it got to Jorge, he said:
"I'm making the website with Christopher."


Well when it got to my turn, I told everyone that I'm helping Jorge with the site but he forgot about me. Everyone booed at him and told him he's voted off the island.


I seemed to not have a very good memory, because I can't seem to remember how to draw Jay, so I doodled him a few times yesterday. And I think people miss him (right?) so here he is.

Jay doodles. Inc pornface )

I've been working on a website for my class's fund raising project all day.
I hadn't wanted to volunteered. In fact, I had actively NOT volunteered, because I knew it would be a frustrating, hair-yanking experience, just like every other time I have to build a web site.

Anyway, the rollover menu bar just refused to work, completely, and I had no idea why and had to sit around until 3:30 when the web design teacher was available to ask him. It turns out I had one more forward slash than necessary. And the kicker is, if I had uploaded the site, it would've worked!

But I digress. No one cares about how much I hate coding, so I'll move on to a topic everyone is interested in: strip poker.

worksafe but silly )

I just had to add this because it was so lovely.

I happened upon his song "This Lamb Sells Condos" and after searching a bit came across that. I like Joanna Newsom too but I honestly kinda like his version more.

The only thing is... He seriously needs to change his group's name.

Those three things are entirely independent, so I'm not making random observations about sketches or Valentine's Day, because my random observations aren't very observant anyway.

Michi wanted to see Charles x Metis as well.
Well, okay.

Not exactly NSFW, but I wouldn't look at it if I were at work )

Hm... And Valentine's Day.
I drew this pic for some Valentine's Day Cards being sold over at Iris Print. A bit late to advertise it now, I s'pose, but better late than never.

Valentine's )

And finally, the Random Observation.

I have a headache and I wanna go to sleep. :(
Oh well.

Yesterday Michi told me that she wanted to see Jay x Metis.

Alright, then. )

I would organize my tags, but I don't really think that anyone looks through them anyway.

So, I've been planning on revamping character profiles on my web comic site, since the ones up are rather outdated and I'll have to add some new ones pretty soon.
With that in mind, I drew a few new mugshots, and was pretty amazed by how different everyone looks.

Thumbnail is unrelated. )

On a completely different note, my doujins finally arrived!!
I'm so sorry to everyone who pre-ordered. I was rather frustrated too, because mostly I was sitting around waiting for the printers to get their act together.

Original Doujin )

Anyway, if you've forgotten, the doujin is this one:

Doujin Sample )

The doujin has now SOLD OUT! Thanks everyone who got a copy! <3

Does Jay have any friends?

Actually, yes he does )

In class right now, and waiting for the teacher to get around to looking at my assignment. In the mean time I don't want to do anything productive, really, so I'm sitting around , surfing, and typing up an entry.

Honestly, the thing I like most about macs are the dashboard. They're just so awesome. Too bad my dictionary widget broke, or it'll be even moar awesome. And that's M-O-A-R.

A CG I finished a few days ago, it's also up on my site.

Honeysyn Comish )

I find that I'm also pretty hesitant to go to print shops in general, unless the specialize in making... say... manga prints for cons or something. It feels like I'm getting in their way. They have all these companies making thousands of copies of brochures and posters, and here I am, demanding that they make 25 copies of some crappy animu pic for me. My sis tells me I need to be more thick-skinned, but if I were I wouldn't really be thinking about this.

...Uh, yeah. Apparantly I fail at html.
