I have a quick announcement to make: current updates for TH are going to go on hiatus until December 1st, 2015. I think I’ve only gone on hiatus 2 or 3 times in all the years I’ve been working on Trying Human so most of yins are aware this isn’t a regular thing.
November is a very hectic month for me this year. I have two cons (Laughlin UFO Symposium and LosCon 2015) that I’ll be attending right in a row. With my birthday on the 10th and Thanksgiving at the end of the month, I’m just not going to have the time to put into the new pages. Otherwise everything will still go on as normal, such as working on the redos and other art. Plus I really want the Volume 2 Kickstarter out in early 2016 and need the extra prep time.
Please tell all your TH friends what the plan is in case they miss this message. I don’t want folks thinking I’m loafing through November. Thank you for sticking with Trying Human until lovely December. =u=;
In the meantime, please check out some of the other awesome comics on Hiveworks (TH’s publisher): http://www.thehiveworks.com/
PS - LosCon 2015 may or may not happen depending on if I hear back about my panel. I thought I was invited/approved for it but it seems like it may be floating in the ether undecided.
PPS - I will still be working on Trying Human: First Tries so don't forget to check for redo updates!
Oh my goooodness; I'm sorry this page took forever. Thank you to everyone who came to my streams and watched the struggle. <3 My stream image on the right side for Picarto.TV hasn't been updating so I'm probably going to start manually manipulating it until I can get around to fixing it. As always I recommend making a Picarto account and following my stream. That way you'll get a message every time I go live and you won't miss any streams. :D
PS - The image of Rose in her prom dress is a distinct shared memory between Hue and Roger (Chapter 14 - 445), but the glasses (Chapter 12 - 378) let him see through Hue's clever ruse. Quazky can see it too, FYI. :3
Not a whole lot to say about the update. There it is up there. OKAY.
I've added some new milestones to my Patreon. For $500 a month, I'm going to finish my other comic, Parka Patty, and continue doing my horror/mystery comics on the site. You can read my other comics at introducingemy.com For $700 I'm going to start doing 2 new pages of Trying Human a week. If I don't reach that milestone after the second book comes out, I may just default to it because I'll have more time on my hands without Volume 2 prep work. I've also added a new higher tier pledge for $50 a month since some folks were asking for it. Let me know if there's something you'd like to see specifically as a Patreon reward. I'm still feeling my way through it.
In other news, Grandma Emy recently got games on her phone; I knew you could but I just never got around to it. I've really gotten into Ingress, a game where you walk around in your hometown (or wherever) and harness portals for your team. If you see the name 'IntroducingEmy' attacking your portals around SoCal, that's me. It's nice because I can listen to my true crime books on tape and stroll around playing a game. It's a good way to get out the house and visit interesting locations. I also got Pokemon Shuffle but I need more Facebook friends who play it. Add me on Facebook if you want to shuffle together. :P
Hue and Quazky are going to be running and screaming a lot until the end of the chapter. I've raised a couple of alien wusses.
As an aside (and a little bit random self promotion), check out my YouTube channel! http://www.youtube.com/user/IntroducingEmy/ I've gotten back in the habit of updating it now that I've returned from my trips. I have a Redline Tuesday episode going up today and a 100 Days of Making Comic vid sometime this week. The 100DoMC video is probably just going to be a lot of review of the work I've done on Trying Human Volume 2 but I'll try to get some more drawing on camera.
I'm back again! Pennsylvania was fun and the Steel City Con was very successful. I did better at it than I have my previous ones.
After I got home, I added some new stuff to the store but haven't had a chance to post about it. There are some new sketches up for sale: http://tryinghuman.storenvy.com/ I'm also down to my last 100 hardbacks and maybe like 20ish pins so get 'em while they're goood!
