The Art for The American Immigrant is Finished!

It's been about a week since I posted any updates here on the blog, but finally I have great news on the graphic novel that I've been working on for the past 2 1/2 years...

The art is done.

This doesn't mean by a long shot that I'm finished with the whole book, there's still plenty to do until it's time to publish it. I still have about 20 more pages to finish up the lettering on a second pass, beta-readers are taking care of feedback for a 3rd pass through the whole book. Beyond that, I'm hiring a professional editor soon to copy-edit and fact check the entire manuscript before sending it off to agents. And that's not the only thing that's going into this book...

Coming up during February, I'm going to the Philippines for 10 days in order to do a detailed account of the state of education within the country to put into the graphic novel. I'm hoping to inject about 30 pages of prose into the back of this book, though still working out the contents of what I'll include at this time. I'll be traveling to Manila, Pampanga, and Bulacan during my stay, so let me know if you're in those areas!

Expect more frequent updates to this site and new material, 2014 is going to be a big year.
