The Bachelors and the Python

I finished the comic course with Steve Rolston I was taking, where i created 4 teaser pages to a Graphic Novel project I've been planning for a little while.

Please note, these pages wont actually appear in the finished book, as the book will be in a shorter-wider format. Also this section of the actual comic will be paced out more appropriately with more fun surprises.

Also, I have a website in the works to go with this teaser where you can see progress on the novel, I'll link it when it's done.

Without further ado, here it is! I'd love to hear your comments!

Daqueran Hiatus and things coming up

Because of school, Christmas and generally having way too much for one person to do at the moment, Daqueran is on a brief Hiatus until January.

In the meantime, I am working on the teaser to The Bachelors and the Python which will be a black and white graphic novel, possibly grey toned, but I haven't decided about that yet. I'll know more about that at the end of the day today. I'll have the pages online and I'll try and make it into a mini comic to give away at conventions ass well, or sell for dirt cheap just to cover paper and ink costs.
So the 4 page teaser comic should be posted...well after Monday, so maybe, Tuesday night, but I still need to finish the website, so we will see.
I'll post it on Drunk Duck, Deviantart, and some others and there will be a sub page on Gurukitty.com, which you can see the graphic is already there and waiting to be linked.

In January will be another Vancouver Comicon, and we will be there, as soon as tables open up and I can secure one. We will be releasing a printable coupon that you can bring to the Gurukitty Studios table and get something for free.  So keep your peepers peeled for that!

Less than a month until Christmas, I'm very excited for this year because our mother moved into a nice new apartment with a neat view, and It's going to be a nice quiet small Christmas.

Vancouver Comiccon Nov 2010

A quick note: There wont be a Daqueran page this week because of the convention.

Well, Vancouver Comiccon is over. We had severely reduced prices because we are trying to clear out some of our overstock from the FanFairFest debacle. Some people were quite surprised at how low I was selling for, but I just have so much, and with Chapter 5 complete, I think it's time to make Daqueran into it's first trade paperback, dont you?
I'll still release the little floppy #5 for those of you collecting, but trade paperbacks are just better for conventions.

So our new product for this convention was the adorable notebooks from the last post, we have several different cover designs and they did quite well actually. We sold a lot of buttons, some comics and several prints. All in all it was quite successful, actually better than Comix and Stories, but I think that mostly has to do with the fact that we got our table much earlier this year.

I'll post a poll on the side of the blog to see what the next con's (January) new product should be.

This photo was taken near the end of the convention, so most of the notebooks are gone, but we'll make more.  It was just me at the table so I couldn't take pictures really.

Notebooks/ blank sketchbooks

We are both notebook junkies, we love collecting and doodling and w
riting useless junk in cute little notebooks.

So with that in mind, we've been playing with some ideas for little blank notebooks and tiny sketchbooks to sell at the conventions and we've come up with a few cute covers and formats.

Obviously, the cover art on these little notebooks will feature Gurukitty Studios artwork, but so far the inside pages are blank.

later we will be making sketchbooks containing sketches and little seen art from projects and things, but thats not going to come until we've got a good solid format.

well, wanna see some previews?

These little notebooks will make their first appearance at the Nov 14th Vancouver Comic Con. We will have a table there.
Heritage Hall, 3102 Main Street, Vancouver, BC 11-5 pm

Hope to see you there, pop by and say hi!

Oh also! Daqueran Chapter 5 is done, so I will be putting together the print version of the issue.
The pre-order is up in the Gurukitty Studios Shop.

Let us know what you think of our little notebooks!
