WOW. It has been over a MONTH since my last proper newsletter. Sorry about that, guys, but I’ll be breaking down what happened to cause such a delay below. Also, welcome to all the new friends I made at Otakon!
Without further ado, let’s begin!

If you know of any events that are accepting artists, let me know!
I have had a panel approved at Matsuricon! I will be talking about mystery comics and the process of writing one! The official schedule has not been posted, but I will let you all know when I have the official time slot information available.
I will be livestreaming the drawing of CosPain strip #110 this coming weekend! Tune in Friday, August 9th, at 7:00 PM EDT for the first half, and Sunday, August 11th, at 7:00 PM EDT for the second half!
If you’re interested in seeing them as they come out, the best way is to follow my YouTube channel, or my Twitch channel if you want to join in on the livestreams, well, live!
What’s Been Happening
The last few weeks have been absolutely incredible. I have stayed in seven different states, driven over 2,000 miles, and flown twice. I had two weekend-long conventions, my aunts’ wedding, and a family reunion. It’s been nuts, to say the least.
As much fun as I had with the whole experience, the highlight had to be Otakon. This was far and away the best tabling experience I’ve had to date. I went from barely making back the table fee on the 3rd day last year to surpassing it handily partway through the 2nd day. It broke every record I’ve set for a con. I had incredible interactions with customers, with other tablers, with staff … it was just the complete package. I absolutely plan on attending again next year.
Unfortunately, these events have put me behind schedule. I detailed this in my last update, but in case you missed it, I have included the revised schedule below.
The Letters of the Devil II
This also means that the final date of completion is unchanged. I still intend to finish the book by 12/1/2019, or at least to give it my best effort. I really want to finish this book before the end of the year, and I won’t throw that towel in until I absolutely have to.
I hate pushing back deadlines, but I’d rather give you all a good product late than a subpar one on time. Thank you all for your support, for holding me accountable, and for just being awesome.
And with that, this newsletter is at an end! Time to get back on track.
If you want to support my work further, please visit my online store. I also have Patreon and Ko-Fiaccounts if those are more your speed.
Rock on, guys, and never stop drawing.
