We're back! September 08, 2008 11:11

Okay, so even though I am the lamest person on the planet for not getting this rolling before now, the new season of Kiskaloo is off and running as of this morning.  The new challenge will be to keep this Blog interesting without the comic on it.  I'll be working on that.  But to all who stuck with me during the down time - thanks!  Have a great September!

Maile's of Comic Con 2008

Hello!

So another Comic Con has come and gone, and this one seemed to go faster than ever.  Partly it’s because I decided to try and do some drawings for sale this year.  I think I managed to get like, seven done over two days.

And of course, I didn’t use my Blog for what it’s for – namely letting people know where my booth was. This is because I’m oficially an idiot, and didn’t exactly know where my booth was till I showed up and saw it myself.  Anyway, I’m back and Kiskaloo has it’s new site, thanks to Nicolette.  Oh, the vinyls you see above are the new colors that came in just before Con.  We have a lot more that are in Long Beach, waiting to be transferred to storage, and we’ll be seling them on the site.  I’ll color-correct the picture later so you can see the colors more like they really are.  The store on the site is scheduled to open in less than a month, and I’ll keep everyone up to date on that.  Until then, here is a picture of me drawing, which I’m sure you will find fascinating, and one of the sketches I did while I was there.

Oh! Be sure and see the new site if you haven’t already!  It’s easy to find –  http://www.kiskaloo.com

This is for Martin. Martin is interested in having vampires on his desktop. Heck, who isn't? If it isn't big enough, Martin, let me know - I'll post it larger! Thanks for reading the strip, by the way!


Monday update - what's going on? April 07, 2008 13:33

So here's the deal - I'm gonna be a little late this week, and plan to post the new Kiskaloo on Wednesday - I know, I know, I'm lame and disgusting. But I'm not entirely without news. So what's the deal with the green girl? Well, sit back and I'll tell you a tale! Every time I've traveled to Hawaii, I've been so in love with the place and the people I've met, and like everyone else I want to bring home something that I could set on my desk that would remind me of the good times I had. In particular, I've been looking for the perfect dashboard hula girl. I have a little collection of them, but the thing is, they're all from Ebay, because it seems like the really cute ones haven't been made since the 50's and 60's. Now I could be missing something, but the ones I've found recently have such harsh angles, and are just lacking warmth and grace. And the skirts are made from this crinkly plastic that's blue and green and red and such.

So I told myself that if I got the chance I'd make one of my own, that would have the softer angles and the cloth skirts that are on the old ones. So here's my take on that. This is the prototype of my first Hula girl, which will have a spring under her skirt and a base that looks like a sandy beach. She's green because of the matrix used in the prototyping printer. The base is missing in this picture, and we're hunting for a skirt that's longer, as this one is more of a mini skirt that wouldn't hide the spring. I'll post a tinted version later, that will give a better impression of the finished piece. Oh, and my hats are off to Johnny Fisk of  Atomic Monkey, and Bear Williams who did the sculpt!
