The Keeper's Realm: Latest News and Updates

Sunday, February 4, 2018/Monday, February 5, 2018

So after another three-year hiatus from the site, I've finally added an update that includes some reorganization of previous pages, as well as a whole new section devoted to the Second Life products I have for sale.

After some suggestions from Robert, I redesigned the site banner, again.

Wow! So, three years later, I finally update my web site, again! At this point, the updates are actually somewhat minor: mostly a change to the banner, as well as a few slight changes in the overall site tree layout. However, if all goes as planned, over the course of the next three months, we'll actually see the arrival of new content--especially with the online comics. Nothing like productivity to make a girl feel excited!

While the general site improvements and Issue #2 of Spirit, Guide Me were fully uploaded, last night, I decided to actually go through the code to add some final touches to make this site look as polished and professional as possible, which generally consisted of editing and revising the text for every page.

Monday/Tuesday, November 19/20, 2012

While I may have worked out the layout and text of my new web site, I depend on Robert to actually post it. Hence, this is why the actual changes of this site didn't take place until Monday, November 19, 2012. I'm hoping that Robert can complete the updates on Tuesday, November 20, 2012.

In addition to the general updates to the site, I have actually completed Issue #2 of Spirit, Guide Me. I'm debating whether or not to begin work on TSOAT, or to continue on with Issue #3 and Issue #4 of Spirit, as 1) I already have the plots for those planned out, and 2) they take place before the events of Issue #1 of TSOAT. I have no idea whether that would be a good idea, or not, though, because I have a feeling that Spirit just may end up being further ahead in the timeline than TSOAT, simply because I need to draw TSOAT by hand, then color and ink it. That takes a lot more time than snapping pictures and editing them into a comic book format. That being said, I'm also aware that, with enough practice, my workflow will likely speed up, and I can have both TSOAT and Spirit more properly synched. Oh, well, no matter what I decide to do, I'll be providing a time line that clearly delineates when the events in the comics take place. I can't possibly be the only one who requires a clear visualization of the continuity of the events of comics that crossover, can I?

Tuesday, November 6, 2012:

I've updated the look and feel of my web site, as well as added in quite a few more sections. Most of them are under construction, but I ask that you bear with me, as I'm also working on a few other projects, at the same time. But I'm really going to do my best to try to get a little bit done every week, if not once a day, so there should be a light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm currently working on issue #2 of the photo comic Spirit, Guide Me, which will lead into the companion comic, The School of All Trades (aka TSOAT). I'm hoping to have issue #2 of Spirit up by the end of the week, and with any luck, I can begin work on the prologue of issue #1 of TSOAT. However, as TOSAT will be hand penciled and inked and colored through various graphics arts programs, I'm more likely to finish the prologue by the end of the month, if I'm really diligent about it, and I'm planning on being diligent.

I'm really excited about these two projects, as I'm hoping that, for the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, I'll have posted enough pages to both comics to make it worth passing out fliers or whatnot to any interested parties, there. It's amazing how many people are curious about my stories when they see my professional badge, and it would be nice to finally have something really substantial and truly of my own that I can show them. (Up until now, the comics I've done, both in print and online, have been for other people. It'll be wonderful to finally be able to show something that's all mine and regularly updated, for a change!)

Reflecting Back on April 11, 2012:

If I'd been thinking about it, at the time, I would have actually written something to celebrate the official launch of my web site. But at the time, my highest priority was having anything up and running, as I was tired with being perpetually caught in the planning phase, and I was hoping that a quick and dirty version of the site would spur me into moving things along. Seems to have worked--just not as quickly as I'd hoped.
