I got the book!

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 26, 2012, 7:40 PM
I drove up to UDON HQ a night or two ago and got myself 5 copies of the GIRL SEVEN book! It looks really pro and the images are almost full size to the page! I can't believe it's done.

After the kids went to sleep wife and I read the book from start to finish soaking up every detail. Only 3 spelling mistakes I found, but more importantly all the images printed out nicely. Overall I'm happy with the outcome and I have no doubt that with the additional commentary for each piece it will be more than just another artbook.

I am already thinking of new concepts for the next book including some story plot as well, though nothing is in stone at this point. I will be putting together some more prints, though right now I have to do some UDON work before I can get to that.

I should mention that to all of you who did order the book online, or will do so, please give it a high rating on the amazon site. This actually does help me out  quite a bit. If the book sells well enough, it will warant another book to be made! I would be more than happy to make another one, and I have enough faith that I will that I have started new art as you have already seen.

I only have one class to teach over the summer, so that means I can go back to a more normal work scheduel. The transition from UDON to teaching at the College has left me quite burnt out. Teaching is so involved and complex because of all the different personalities you have to deal with. I take my job seriously too as I feel directly responsible if they do not get the best out of me. Like with anything I try to do , I am very intense but the down side is that very few times do I actually relax.

I'm still trying to figure out the print situation for this year, however commissions will always be open at cons and I will have more original art up for grabs too including 6 JURI COMIC PAGES for sale. (no you have not seen them except on blog TV by fluke).

Here is the order info for the book, and maybe I will record a youtube video of me flipping through the book or show it on blogtv. It is done and will ship in April 2012, even if the Amazon site says something different.

The GIRL7 artbook will be officially able to ship to you as of about mid April 2012.

If you live in Canada or the States go here to order yours:

I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

3 spelling mistakes, I wonder what they were (color instead of colour?)

Sad to see this come to an end. Hope you get to do another one.

3 spelling mistakes? That's not to bad, though I'm sure you would have preferred none since your always on us for not spelling things right. =P

But I'm glad to hear that your work schedule is lessening, means not as much stress.Though you'll still probably be pretty busy with stuff jus don't over work your self.

And you say we'll get the book in April even though I got a note saying mid July?
