So I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I’ve dropped the ball and slacked off a little on Selkie background stuff. I got a little teensy bit “called out” on Friday for a lack of Selkie-themed merch in my Society6 store. I had something in the pipe in May (a larger version of the bookmark artwork I drew for ACEN) and… well here we are almost July and it hasn’t been shirtified yet. Woops. 😡
I’ve set up a workflow to get kraken on finishing that, but I’ve also started a couple other things I thought I’d share with you all while I am here. Based on popular feedback I am also sketching out a t-shirt based on the “Selkie Selfie” panel from Friday. It’s only in a very (very VERY) rough stage right now, but it should look cute when it’s done.
I know some of you like seeing the “in progress” artwork, so thought I’d share a small teaser. This is what Selkie drawings look like before I ink/color/polish/etc. This is NOT how the t-shirt design will look.
I also started a drawing sometime last week that isn’t directly Selkie related but I’ve put it in my to-do list to also finish up and get in print for those that may like cute stuff. This is the linework, colors and etc. are not done yet.
And while I hate to end this on a worrisome note, I like to try and inform people if I know ahead of time that there may be comic interruptions. I got a new job and am transitioning over the next two weeks away from my overnight cashiering gig. It means working on my off days at the new place while I serve two-weeks notice. I think I can keep Selkie going on normal speed during the next two weeks, this is just a warning notice in case I mess up. Again. XD
