I can’t believe it’s been almost two YEARS since you’ve all last heard from me. There’s been a lot going on that I’ll get into a little, but the exciting part is that Second Sight will be returning in April 2022, and I’m working on something new!
When we suddenly went radio silent after our last update in October 2020, a lot of things were happening. The American presidential election was a month away, the pandemic was building momentum with no vaccine in sight, so many of us were dealing with the effects of sudden and long-term isolation while in quarantine or working from home…I’ve dealt with anxiety and depression since I was a teenager, but as my 30th birthday was approaching both were worse than they’d ever been. I was diagnosed with ADHD. I dyed my hair green and have been called a Disney Princess by multiple children – I love it. I came out to my parents at long last and it went okay! My first pride parade came and went, a did all I could to support the Black Lives Matter movement but too afraid of the pandemic to go to a protest in person. I had my closest relationship lasting 10 years fall apart without any sort of closure. I lost my will to create and interact with the world outside my immediate circle. My darling 14-year-old cat had passed. Family members had major surgery with one developing a potentially life-threatening infection. I moved and had my living expenses triple. I started a new creative venture and made grand plans for my stories and art, which I couldn’t begin until I felt like I had enough control over my life to actually make progress. But I’m there, finally. Or…you know, close enough to try.
It’s so good to see you all again, and for those of you who are still here…thank you so much for your patience. Love you guys.
This started as a drawing exercise sketched along with Critical Role’s LIVE Pub Draw episode “Draw Percy Using the Loomis Method” (February 13, 2019). I revisited the sketch in August and and sold as a print at Rose City Comic Con 2019.
It was such an exciting experience to engage with this community over this character and my interpretation of him! Reactions to the original sketch posted on Twitter were quite positive and heartwarming. Babs Tarr even commented on the post! At RCCC, I also had some very passionate conversations with fellow “Critters” and two amazing people who were cosplaying Percy!
You’ll notice that the pages here are formatted for print instead of the scrolling format you’re used to. There’s no “official” version; the apps are better for viewing on a mobile device, while the website is better for computers/tablets. Follow whichever version you prefer! Both website and app will update on the same day and with the same amount.
If you’d like to be notified of when Second Sight updates, you can get the RSS feed or subscribe for email notifications! There’s also the usual Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr updates as well. 🙂
The brand new Extras page has additional art for you to check out, as well as a section to highlight fanart and the like.
I’m also putting Second Sight up on Tapas! Mostly because people have their preferred webcomic viewing method (I certainly do, anyway) and I want to give people the option to read Second Sight however they like best. UNLIKE this website, Tapas will use the scrolling version and start from the beginning with weekly updates.
I will be doing my first ever table at a Comic Con Convention in a few weeks!!! I’ll have some art I haven’t posted yet for sale (both fanart and original) as well as a few handmade pretties I’m super excited about. If you’re attending Rose City Comic Con in Portland, I’d love it if you would stop by and say hello!
