2014 IS GOING TO BE MY YEAR!!
No if, ands, or buts about it. I'm SUPER excited for this year for several different reasons. #1: I will be completing graduate school in May! That will be the culmination of 3 long years of study. But beyond that, it'll free up my time to focus on several projects that have been long-dormant. Which brings me to #2: I'm going to be crafting my first comic book property from scratch! I've been noodling with an idea for the better part of 7 years now, and 2014 is when it all comes together. I can't wait for you guys to see what I come up with! It'll be a bit of a departure from the tights and flights--think more swords and sorcery and kingdoms and intrigue with a splash of Game of Thrones and LOTR. I'm still in the early design stage, and I'm not sure when the series will actually be completed, but I hope you all join me for the ride -- it's gonna be EPIC!
#3: I just started a Tumblr blog [ www.stephenschaffer.tumblr.com ] where I will be showing all of my sketches and all that fun behind the scenes stuff reserved for TPBs. But don't worry, dA will always be a special place for me and I will still be uploading my art here, but for all the tiny extra details you gotta go to my Tumblr. That brings up another point -- there are some other places to find me on the interwebs that you may not know about. There are as follows:
YouTube (coming soon!)
If I haven't made it clear yet, I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for this year! I promise you guys won't be disappointed. I hope you ride with me on this journey. So buckle up and let's go!
All the best,
