Just a small note… / Un pequeño aviso…

Hello everyone!

I’m writing this post because some of you have recently reached out to me interested in hiring me for short contracts or freelance work.  First of all, I want to say thank you for thinking of me to work on your projects; however…

I am currently UNAVAILABLE for freelance or short contract jobs until further notice.

I already have a full-time contract plus my own comic keeping me very busy, so I really don’t have extra room to take on any more work.

I am really sorry for any inconvenience!  Whenever I become available again for freelance, I will be sure to let you know through a new post, so please keep checking this space from time to time!

Also check my Twitter and Tumblr accounts for more updates!

Thank you!

*******

¡Hola a todos!

Quise escribir este artículo debido a que algunos de ustedes me han contactado interesados en contratarme para contratos cortos o para “freelance.”  Primero que todo, quiero darles las gracias por pensar en mí para sus proyectos, pero…

Al momento NO ESTOY DISPONIBLE para trabajos “freelance” o contratos cortos hasta nuevo aviso.

Ya tengo un contrato a tiempo completo más mi comic semanal manteniéndome ocupada, así que no tengo tiempo extra para dedicarme a ningún otro proyecto.

¡Discúlpenme por cualquier inconveniente!  Cuando esté disponible otra vez para trabajo “freelance” yo les aviso por acá.  Por favor chequeen este espacio de vez en cuando para nuevas noticias.

También pueden chequear mi cuentas de Twitter y Tumblr para más información.

¡Muchas gracias!

Last show of 2013

Hey guys!

I’ve recently been confirmed to exhibit at the Toronto Indie Arts Market on December 14th; the last show to wrap up my con season this year.

Unlike the The Toronto Indie Arts Market that took place back in April, this one is catering exclusively to literature, comics and small press. Please come support independent artists and do your Christmas shopping! :D

Show admission is $5, with partial proceeds going to Parkdale Project Read.

I’ll be sharing a table with my lovely friend Julie Faulkner, creator of Promises Promises.

Hope to see you there!

Tea drinking series

I’ve started a series of drawings of women from around the world drinking tea.  So far I’ve covered China, UK (1800s), India and Japan, and I’m currently researching for more ideas.  If you think of any others, let me know :)

Each drawing was made with Colerase pencil, ink pens, Tria markers, a bit of white coloured pencil and a bit of white gel pen for some accents here and there.

I’ve added the linework versions to the Black and White gallery, and the finished ones in the Colour gallery.

Just felt like drawing a girl in a hanfu dress drinking a blossom tea…

I may colour it soon; stay tuned!  In the meantime, I’ve place the inked drawing in the Black and White gallery :)
