Almanac – Punishment

April 26th, 2012

With Laurent in the pillory, it seems a good time to discuss punishment in the Almanac. The pillory (and its close relative the stocks) were a popular form of punishment in colonial times. In a small community like Sherbourg, being put “on display” in the town square was a humiliating and dreadful experience that continues to sting for a long time after you get out of the pillory.

Oh, I have a couple more artists Britt and I met at Pittsburgh Comicon. Wootlabs by Joe Kleinman is a webcomic of a happy family of mad scientists. I love the look and pacing of this comic. Rich Bernatovech of Drumfish Productions is releasing NeverMinds. NeverMinds is the code name for a secret, superhuman organization that offers security and investigation…for a fee. Great stuff!

Chapter 4 Page 4 is up. Sherbourg crowd sources its criminal justice. That doesn’t matter to Laurent. He’s pinning all the blame on Jassart. To see more of Mathilde’s and Jassart’s “date,” vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Pittsburgh Comicon was a great time. This convention treated its artists well. We got a draped-off area that gave us plenty of space. The con staff came by with water bottles and sandwiches. It was some incredible bang for our buck. We also met some great artists. Franks and Beans were our neighbors to one side. They run Wagon Wheel Comics and publish the engaging and fast-paced Teddy and the Yeti. To our other side was John Haun, a brilliant illustrator and sketch artist. Next to John was 8th Day Anime, who does some incredible anime illustrations. Oh, Stan Lee was there, signing his new Romeo & Juliet book. That booth was literally 50 feet from ours so I got a picture of him then watched as he walked by our table a couple times (he didn’t notice us, alas). For 89 years old, he’s in incredible health and owns whatever room he’s in. To see pictures of all this, visit our Facebook page.

Brittany and I just got back from Pittsburgh Comicon. We had a fantastic time and met a lot of great artists and fans. I’ll do a more extensive con report on Wednesday when I’m not running on emergency auxiliary power. My thanks to Diane for doing the update on Friday and winning the award for Most Rambling-est Journal Entry of the Year. And it’s Rendez-vous, Diane. It’s in the almanac. :-p

Chapter 4 Page 3 is up. Blaise and Jassart take their leave of Cienan and Ald picks up after them. To see a preview of what befalls Laurent vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.



I had to go look at the older Journal entries to figure out how to spell that French word and now I’ve already forgotten. Whoops! As you can tell, this is Diane reporting in for Journal entry duty in Eric’s stead. He and Brit are off to Pittsburgh Comicon this weekend, so if you’re attending, please stop by and harass them! I mean, visit them!

Replacing the usual Almanac update is another piece of great fan art by Inqling. Blaise is my favorite character so far, so I love this deviously cheerful version of him! He’s so cute when he grins.

However, the best smile in the story thus far has to go to another character. (Sorry, my beloved Blaise!) You can see more of his scheming in our teaser up on Top Web Comics if you’re as intrigued as I am. Monday’s Story update will reveal what he’s saying in that panel.

Some of you may remember my tearbending-worthy hope of getting a store up and running for the site, which is still in process, I promise. I tossed it on the back burner in order to flip our entire site over to PHP code, which would mean a lot less future work in updates for me, and it would give Eric the ability to quickly make changes even if I’m unavailable. The project is staying true to the Snow by Night motto – by taking longer than I thought it would. If I end up not being able to migrate the site over by the end of this month, I’m going to flip my focus back onto the Store to get it up here by the end of May.

Enough excuses, this Journal’s getting too wordy! Here, have another sneak peek picture:

Hurricane Diane

This is a doodle of chibi me as a hurricane. I’d probably make a very lazy storm, considering I find traveling up a flight of stairs too much effort to bother. Why a hurricane? There are lots of reasons. And bees.

(…Huh, that really does go with everything.)

I guess that’s all I have to say for now. Hope to hog the spotlight again soon with some big site changes! And bees!

Almanac – Heavy Cavalry

April 12th, 2012

This week’s Almanac entry is heavy cavalry. These units are the tanks of the colonial period. They hit hard and fast.

Chapter 4 begins on Monday. I would like to welcome Natalie Baaklini to the team. Naty is the artist of Law of the Riverside. She has agreed to become our colorist for the main story and take some of the pressure off of Britt. Thank you, Naty!
