I love you other Kuwabara supporters! And Yay! !!! Frozen!!!! Completely off topic but do you know when the second book of TheHumanBEing will be ready to be published? O ^ O

Ahahaha that IS off topic! BUT so glad you asked! Because I’m planning to get the book layout done….Looks like it’ll be early 2015 ^^; I don’t have enough pages for the second volume yet, which is totally my fault for letting that series slip so often…

Kuwabara! !!!! O.O and Frozen! My life can be summed up with frozen and pompadours!

Ahahaha NEVER FEAR! I am expanding the YuYu Hakusho bookmark set (and the FMA Brotherhood set) on top of adding in Madoka Magica stuff! Kuwabara will get in there (since you are not the only one who asked for him XD) 

Hmmmmm Frozen. I think I just might do a set with them too, now that you mention it!

Got more than a few requests for some Puella Magi Madoka Magica stuff at Saboten, so I finally caved and watched the anime. Messed up story FOR SURE. But it was an original take on magical girls so I’ll allow it~
As a result of my watchings, there are new bookmark designs coming at ya! And no there will not be a Kyubey. Kyubey is eeeeeviiiiiiiiiiiiil. (I’d have to get at least a dozen requests for him in order to even consider drawing him; I HATE HIM THAT MUCH XD)
These will be finished in time for Taiyou Con 2015; maybe sooner if I manage to get super motivated hahah (I’m in the middle of designing clocks and bags and journal patterns right now)~
ANYWHO whenever I finish these, you’ll be able to grab them at the Pixel & Graphite store, but feel free to grab some of the stuff that’s already up there right now!

ANNOUCEMENT

firewireconnection:

Sorta big announcement time (which may or may not upset some people):

FireWire is going on hiatus. And when it does come back, I will actually be reposting from the beginning with redrawn chapters, more specifically Part 01-06. I apologize, but those chapters have been bugging me for years and I just…*sigh* I’m caving. I have to. As much as I love this story, I can’t be confident about sharing it while I still feel ashamed of those chapters.

SO lots of archives will be disappearing from all FireWire’s websites for now. But here’s a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who enjoyed my story. You guys are amazing, and for all those who supported me by buying the print edition YOU GUYS ARE EXTRA AWESOME. I’m not 100% when FireWire will be back, but it will return. And I hope you will continue to enjoy the reboot as you did the original. Thanks for an awesome 5 year run, and here is to future restartings!
~Sai

And to further explain myself, let me give you an idea of what the reboot is going to have:

  • Select scenes will be expanded or removed (especially in the earlier chapters where I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING WITH MY LIFE hahaha)
  • Fights will be streamlined (that last 75 page chapter was ridiculous. I will choke off my incessant need to bunny trail)
  • BETTER ART. (and holy cow, BACKGROUNDS GALORE because now I have Google Sketchup)

Also there are several missing scenes from the first part of the story that will be put back in because I’m MUCH more confident in drawing them now. So peeps who enjoyed the old version YOU WILL HAVE NEW STUFF TO ENJOY EARLIER ON *w*b

And if you were part of FireWire’s first design contest FEAR NOT. Your characters and their roles in the FireWire universe remain completely intact! (because some of them are now integral parts of the 3rd and final arc hahaha). 

As much as I didn’t want to restart FireWire, I came to a realization that it is the one series I never like to talk about when talking to people who are newly interested in my work, even though it’s my more popular series online. Mostly because I KNOW I CAN DO BETTER. And those first 6 chapters make me CRINGE. 

As for a tentative re-start date, I’d love to say early 2015 but it looks more likely to be early 2016, if things keep the way they are.

Anywho, I just want to drive home the fact that even though FireWire is on hiatus IT IS NOT DEAD. It will be finished, so hang tight and I hope you join me on the reboot when it’s time!

firewire manga I LOVE YOU GUYS FOR SUPPORTING FIREWIRE *BIG BEAR HUG*

vanoty:

For Windows.

My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).

What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.

MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.

This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.

For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!

Now go draw, babies!

I…somehow did not know you had a blog just for your art hahaha! And yup, got the Samaritan one already! I shall peruse your other suggestions! *w*b

I don’t have a comic yet but I’m working on one. I’m on the twelve gates website as a member. I’m not sure if we’ve ever talked but I’m Esi. :)

Oh yeah, we have talked! On the TG forum!! I remember the plot for your comic and it sounded super interesting. I look forward to seeing the first chapter :D

Original art and fanart here~ Also for some suggestions: try my friend redfur (super talented, has ongoing comic and oneshots linked to on page), hopefulhota (comic on hiatus I think, but she’s a wonderful artist),  and also have some people-I-don’t-know-but-have-spectacular-art XD: turtlequeen (comic on hiatus, but her drawings are some of my favorites), sssscomic (beautiful comic), also jonn-lock (haven’t read her main comic but her art is just breathtaking.).

I already follow Redfur and hopefulhota, but the rest of your suggestions are definitely worth a look! PLEASE GIMME MOAR ;w;

CONVENTION RECAP! So Saboten 2014 was pretty fabulous. Not only was it a successful first official year for Pixel & Graphite, I met tons of cool people and had loads of fun! I can only fit a few highlight pics from the weekend on here, but if you want to see all the pics you can head on over to the Pixel & Graphite facebook page! And if you see yourself in a pic (either on P&G’s facebook, twitter, google+, or even on my tumblr post, PLEASE TAG YOURSELF or let us know who is who in which pictures! We wanna know who you are and give you cyber hugs and cookies (because who doesn’t like cookies? Unless you don’t. Then we’ll definitely find some other treat to give you. Wait, I seem to be digressing…)

ANYWHO I know I’ve said it a dozen times but I can’t help myself: ALL OF YOU GUYS WERE SO AWESOME. And I hope to see you next year!
