Happy Holidays!

I thought it was a great time to revive a classic holiday comic from our "East Oahu Sun" years and spruce it up for 2014. :D

Also, if you missed it in the blog last week, I've posted a Disney holiday-themed desktop wallpaper for you folks to download and use! [ Link! ] It's not the most nemu*nemu of artwork, but I hope the feeling is still there. ♥

Enjoy! Happy Holidays!

Hey folks!

Aside from being somewhat side-lined this past long weekend with a cold, I'm happy to announce that we've hit the $200/month mark on Patreon!


I've started to post a few sneak peek items at the Patreon blog and will be adding more soon. Once we hit the $250/month milestone, digital wallpapers will resume for all contributors! (And if you're not, they'll be added to the nemu*digital shop later!) I'm most looking forward to hitting the $500/month mark where I will compile all my sketches into a monthly sketchbook PDF. :D

In other news, I've been featured as one of JetPens's Pen Pals! [ link ] I talk a little bit about my craft, my favorite artists, and of course - my favorite supplies. :D Go check it out~! ★

Blue Hawaii, as printed in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Sunday, January 18th!

This year, I am trying to improve my lettering skills. (You can take a look at my attempt at hand-lettering in this screenshot while I was working on the comic last week. :3) I'm hoping with practice, I get the hang of sizing and spacing them properly. Lettering has always been one of my weaknesses (hand-in-hand with inking!;;;) so any improvement is better than sweeping it under the rug for a rainy day.



Join me at Patreon!

After much hand-wringing and contemplating, I've decided to switch to Patreon to handle the site membership.

While there are many pros to handling things in-house, it's been a lot of work for me to maintain, account, and then report about. nemu*nemu/KimonoKitsy Studios is really just *me* -- and I've never been great with numbers to begin with. To take the weight of the membership maintenance off my shoulders will really allow me to just worry about creating great content and share it with you instead.

I've set up a variety of tiered rewards, depending on what you'd like to see most from me -- starting at $1 a month. I've also established a handful of milestone goals that we both can look forward to as support grows!

For those of you curious about my plans for nemu*nemu, I will be resuming updates in February.

However, I will maintain a somewhat irregular update schedule and release parts of my story in chunks. This is to make sure the story is being told the best way possible, rather than confining myself to a M-W-F "block". I'd like to take this opportunity to grow as a story-teller and artist. :D

I will also be launching a couple other side projects and comics that I've had on the back burner for a while now that will hopefully supplement the waits in-between. :D

So, thank you so much for your patience these past months. It hasn't been an easy road to recovery, and I'm thankful that you stuck around for the ride!
