Thanks to the generous support of my patrons through Patreon, I've been able to purchase a digital camera!  It arrived today but I'm still waiting for the overhead rig to come.  I'm going to mount it over my drawing desk and record my layouts for Trying Human as well as some traditional art.  Some of the videos will be available through my Youtube but most of them will be through Patreon (since they're the folks who got it for me in the first place).  I might also make some videos about my UFO and alien abduction book collection but I don't know if folks would be too interested in that.

If you're still not on the Trying Human Patreon, you should really check it out!  Right now we're working on getting to $350 for monthly Trying Human wallpapers.  I'm going to be making some new reward pools over the weekend (commissions, original art, postcards, etc.) so keep an eye on it.

 

I've restocked two of my artbooks.  Get 'em while the gettin's good!

  Trying Human Artbook Volume 2

He's such a grump!  Let a girl have her aliens~  This page has gone up for everyone at the same time because it's super late (computer issues, urgh).  I'll be back on my normal schedule of updating early for the Patreon supporters starting with the next update.

This isn't a 'real' update so there's no page attached to this, but I just wanted to give everyone a little news on where I've been.  I just got back from HanadokiCon and had a great time delivering my panel on how to start your own webcomic.  I think it went over really well, but if you were there and have more questions, my email is emy.bitner@introducingemy.com  

I hurt my hand shortly before the panels so I barely got any drawing done in the past week but in the meantime, I've reordered EMpathY and the Trying Human Artbook Volume 2.  They should be here within the week and up in the store.  I'll have more on that soon.

I'm also considering changing my layout here on the front page a little.  I'd like it to be little less crowded and I think the only way I can do that is by making the site a little wider but I'm scared to fiddle with it too much since folks seem pretty comfortable with this width.  I'll play around with it and try not to break everything :X

Remember, Rose, Hue you are!

I'm going to be at HanadokiCon 2015 this Friday giving a panel on how to start a webcomic.  It's my first time doing a panel 100% on my own so we'll see how this goes.  We'll also have some books for sale before and after the panel and I'll be availabe for signings as well. :D

I'll be attending Free Comic Book Day at Nostalgia Books and Comics in San Gabriel, CA.  I'll be selling and signing books as well as doing drawings for sketch covers.  I'm also going to be going to the Laughlin UFO Symposium in November (just a few days after my birthday)!  I'm really excited for that one since it'll be my first UFO unless the Roswell UFO Gathering gets back to me about a table.

Speaking of UFOs (are we ever not?), I got Kelly Cahill's Encounter book.  It's been out of print for a long time and is fairly hard to get in the states.  I managed to get it from an Australian used book store's auction and it came with the bonus of having notes throughout the book from the previous owner.  A lot of my ufology books are marked up pretty well by other folks in the community and it's always interesting to read their notes.  

The alien 'leader' or 'doctor' that Kelly reports encountering in 1993 reminds me so much of EBE1 but perhaps a little more expressive.  He's really dismissive and sardonic though, and that's pretty close to Eebs. :B

I love how happy Longus is to introduce Don to his friends. It's almost like he's seeking approval from Rose to make sure Don checks out. XD

Also, I'm back from the Long Beach Comic Expo! I hope I got to meet some of you there. My next con is Hanadoki at the end of the month.  The info is down below!  I'll at least be there on Friday but if I don't get an artist alley table, I'll be back home by Friday evening. :X

Oh boy I've missed drawing her! It's been like two chapters since she's had a really meaty interesting scene.

Sorry for the little hiatus there.  If you want to know what was going on with me, here's a video blog post thing-y getting into it: http://youtu.be/1NJmKmR_ym0  That'll probably be the last I have to say on the matter.  I don't like getting into my health issues too much online. :X

In the meantime, I've added a map of where I'll be seated during the Long Beach Comic Expo next weekend.  If you check the roster below, you can click on the 'Artist Alley' link to see the map, address, and other relevant information.  I'm still waiting to hear back from Hanadoki Con about my table but I did get my panel approved, so if you want to see me gab about making webcomics in person, be sure to get a ticket to Hanadoki Con! :D

I’ve been confirmed for a table at the Long Beach Comic Expo but I’m still waiting to hear back about my 'How to Start a Webcomic' panel at Hanadoki Con.  Click the links below for con details!  I hope I see some of you there. 

PS - I'll also be handing out ~exclusive~ 'Trying Human' badge ribbons so drop by my table to get one. :D

Yay!  They're back; I've missed them.

I updated the Trying Human Patreon account with a new project of a monthly TH wallpaper if we can meet $350 a month.  I thought that'd be a really awesome goal to meet (and it also gives me an excuse to draw other TH things besides the comic itself...).  Go here to check out the TH Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/introducingemy

Oh my goodness! Sorry this page took so long. I spent a lot of time working on the backgrounds to make them super rainbow-y. I want the earth scenes to be really colorful compared to the scenes on the alien ships or at the bases. :X  A sharp eye (or a Ufology obsessed mind) may recognize the book as a parody of Whitley Strieber's Communion.  Neeeat.

Over the break, I added some new stuff to the store like the Trying Human hardback, a poster, and a print.  Check them out!  tryinghuman.storenvy.com/
