WOWW!! It's finally here! I can't believe it! It's been such a journey working on Not Drunk Enough, that it's wild to think that I'm beginning the last book of the series. I cannot express my gratitude to all of you who have followed me through the entire journey, and to those of you just now tuning in! You're all amazing and make working on this so worthwhile and incredible!! Here's to the beginning of the end, and of all the great things to come!

I wanted to let you know that I'll be posting Not Drunk Enough v3 in B+W to begin with, as it was more important to me to get the story moving along and new content up for you lovelies, and based on my work schedule this was the easiest way to accomplish that! Thank you so much for your understanding, and don't worry! When everything's finished and done it will be in full color (and the print version as well!) 

To celebrate the launch of book three, I am putting back up Logan's t-shirt in my store available for Pre-Order!! I'm really excited about this, and I hope you enjoy!


Love you all!

-Tess!

THAT'S RIGHT!! Book three of Not Drunk Enough (the last and final!!) will begin updating on October 8th!! Look forward to it!! I know I am!! Thank you so much for your always support--I canNOT wait to share with you what's in store! I'll also be in New York this week, so please drop by and say hey if you're going to be at the convention! Can't wait to see y'all!


MUCH LOVE!! And more info below! vvvvvvvvvvv




Hey everyone!!

Are you going to NYCC or have a friend who's going to NYCC and would like a commission?? Since it's one of the biggest cons of the year that I attend, I am slotting away time to get started on commissions early so that more slots are available!! If you are interested, please hit up the e-mail StoneConComm@gmail.com to get the process started! What to send me:

-- What you're interested in getting (which tier, IE sketch bust + character, etc)
-- Who/what you would like me to draw! If it's an OC please feel free to show me as much reference as you'd like, as well as include a little bit bout them! I LOOOOOVE drawing OCs, DnD characters, the whole lot! If it's a licensed character, or something along those lines, give me the best name to Google them by as well as 1 image (so I at least know I'm finding the correct reference alongside!)
-- If you or a friend is picking up the piece at NYCC! If a friend is picking it up for you, let me know who so I don't accidentally give it away to the wrong person! If you're unsure who it may be just yet, don't worry! You have until the convention to e-mail me back and let me know! I won't hand over the commission unless I get authorization from you to make sure it gets to the right person!! 

That's about it!! I look forward to hearing from you! And here's a few other tips (that are up in the image above) but for easy reading, I've provided it here too:

Please note that all commissions are traditional, and there will be NO shipping. PICK UP at convention ONLY. If you cannot make it, but would like to send a friend for pick up, please mention this in your e-mail and we will work it out!

Pay is upfront, and unfortunately no refunds if you cannot pick it up at NYCC suddenly, as the work will be completed.

I will still be taking commissions DURING the convention, so if you do not sign up for a slot now, don’t worry! There will be slots left! 

Expect about 24-48 hours for responses! I will do my best to reply quicker than that, but just in case, don't worry! If you e-mailed me before the convention, I will make sure you get a slot! <3 

Also one last thing to note:

This e-mail is for convention (NYCC) commissions ONLY. I unfortunately am closed to regular commissions, and it is not a good place to reach me for other questions, or work related inquiries. Thanks for your understanding!! 

Y'all are AWESOME as always, and I'm excited to see you at New York Comic Con 2019!!! (and for the ramping up of the beginning of BOOK THREE OF NOT DRUNK ENOUGH!!)

-Tess!

My thumbs are basically my pencils! I ink directly on top of them (thanks digital media!!) so while my thumbs vary in quality and definition, I try to make sure I always give myself enough to go off of no matter what, just in case I happen to spend a lot of time away from them and can't remember what it was I was thinking.

This usually means I try to ALWAYS make sure the expressions are very obvious, as well as anything else I think is important. I tend to spend this time really figuring out the essence of the backgrounds as well, because trying to come up with it later is really ... hard for me. If I am too loose during this stage for the background, usually it means that there won't be a very good background during inks, or I'll drop it entirely. In worst case scenarios where I still VERY MUCH need a background but didn't give myself a good enough one in thumbs, I have to rethumb the panel, and that just takes time away as well as ruin my Inking Groove.

This is also the stage where I try to decide on a lot of the lettering, IE placement and beats. I'm a very visual person, so it's fairly difficult for me to thumb out a scene without text directly involved.

Hope you're enjoying the sneakpeak!! LOVE Y'ALL!!!

During NDE v2, I experienced intense tendinitis in my drawing hand, which forced me to take a long time away to rest and also have a healing period where I was updating the comic, but unfortunately not able to color. There was a chunk of pages that were purely spot color, but with the release of the printed book coming out, you'll be seeing those fully realized! HOW COOL!! 


Here's a look at what you can be looking forward to!! 


Thanks for EVERYTHING as always, and hopefully see some of y'all at FlameCon 2019 next weekend!! Love ya!

-Tess!

This is the end of book two!! WOW. It felt ... like quite the long journey, and i actually feel like a totally different person than the one who started writing this series. I am, in fact, VERY different than the person who started writing this series. And through it all, y'all have always been so supportive and kind and encouraging. I can't thank you enough. NDE means a lot to me, and in some ways is hard for me to talk about and express, for reasons I'm not even entirely sure why, but know that y'all have made it such a treat the entire way.


The next few weeks will be a little sketchbook updates while I get gearing on the third book and completing all I need to for the 2nd Kickstarter! I will also be attending FLAMECON 2019 next weekend (Aug 17th-18th)! I hope to see you there, and that the year has been treating y'all kindly!!


Love ya lots!!

-Tess!

Hey everyone!!


I know it's been a minute! My surgery went extraordinarily well, and recovery went smoothly and I feel incredibly lucky and happy!! My last day in retail is going to be THIS Friday, and I'm utterly stoked at the new amount of time and attention I can pour into my projects, including NDE! I have a lot of really wonderful things in the works--you may have even seen the really cool announcement that I will be working once again with Ananth Hirsh on a book called Greater Secrets with Random House Graphic! I'm so honored and it will be a DELIGHT and can't wait to share even more with you guys, soon.


On top of that, my store is going to be moving so will be closed temporarily! Bigger and better things are on the horizon, (I can't wait!!) but until then, you can catch a VERY awesome 15% off sale! A wonderful way to grab a few things you were maybe eyin' for a while! Simply enter in the code 15MOVING at checkout!! 

Click here to go to my shop!! 



I'll also be at Emerald City Comic Con again this year, with some amazing friends, so if you're going, please hit me up! I love meeting new faces and also seeing old buddies! I'll give out more information once I'm closer to the event itself, but it is absolutely one of my most favorite cons out of the year, so I'm just ecstatic. See you in Seattle!


Last, but not least, I wanted to talk about Not Drunk Enough itself! I truly appreciate everyone's patience with how spotty it's been the past year. I love the comic so dang much, but so many things have come up and made it hard to update regularly. I have been working hard on it, though! The entirity of book two is inked and lettered, and now I'm just in a blind run to finish all the colors, so updating should be MUCH more steady! And you know what else that means! It means that working to get book two printed and out is going to be UNDER WAY!! 

LOVE YOU ALL, and I hope you are having a fantastic beginning of your week!

-Tess!!

As a tiny aside, I also made a Twitch channel in which I primarily play Dragon Age : Inquisition, but it's pretty darn fun!!
