A short break for August 2018

Sunnyville fans and blog readers, I need to take a short break.  Besides personal matters, I also need to plot out my next Kickstarter and review my convention schedule for the remainder of 2018.

For that reason, there will be NO blog post next week on Saturday August 18, 2018.

When I resume the following week, I am going to have a big announcement to make about Sunnyville Stories.  It’s one that will affect the comic itself and may be the break I needed all along.  If you follow me on the mailing list, you probably already know what this development is.  For those of you who don’t…well, I’ll tell you in due time.

Sunnyville #18 will be entering full production soon.  Sunnyville #19 and #20 are also on my agenda.  In fact, Sunnyville #20 will be made free to read both here on the blog and on my DeviantArt, much like #1, #13 and #14 were.  Stay tuned for more news on that.

Sign up for the mailing list if you haven’t already.  Check out my webcomic Tiffany & Corey and also stop by Amazon to grab Sunnyville Stories trade paperbacks.  Look for artwork & other neat stuff on my Etsy.

Are you interested in private commissions from me?  Feedback or questions on my comics?  Send them via email to maxwestart(at)gmail(dot)com or write to:

Sunnyville’s Blog Turns 8 Years Old

Today is August 1.  You know what that means?

Today is the anniversary that the Sunnyville Stories blog was officially launched.  This blog launched officially on August 1, 2010.

Wow…I’ve been blogging for 8 years.  I’ve also been working on my comics for that much longer.  To be honest, I don’t know what else to say that hasn’t already been said.

There are more surprises in store.  In fact, some recent developments came up that could be a very big boon to Sunnyville.  I’ll fill you in on everything once details are confirmed.

That’s it for now!  Here’s to another year at sunnyvillestories.com!

Sunnyville Number 18 Script Done

Welcome back, fans.  As this blog post goes live, I just finished the script for Sunnyville Stories #18.  This story “Time Warp” is a time travel story.  It’s one I’ve been dying to write for awhile now.

Finished script on my computer

The script was just finished; it’s one I’ve had in my head for a long time and went over time after time.  I feel satisfied with this story and can’t wait to draw it.

During the week, I’ll be doing some thumbnails as well as coming up with concept sketches.  We’ll be meeting younger versions of Sam’s parents, the previous inhabitants of Rusty’s house, the previous owner of the town general store and the general store itself before the Talbot family took it over.

I will also be working on my Maple Town blog (which is more of a labor of love) as well as planning my next Kickstarter.  That next Kickstarter launches on Sept. 15, 2018 so watch for it.

That’s it for now.

ATTENTION!  First, I want to announce that the Sunnyville #17 Kickstarter IS OFFICIALLY OVER!!!  The final rewards went out earlier today.  That is out of the way.

Now I want to announce my next Kickstarter.  In the early morning hours of Saturday, September 15, 2018, a Kickstarter will launch to fund a limited edition print run of the Sunnyville Stories Super Special #2.  Approximately twenty-five copies of this 68 page comic will be printed.

Its contents will be Sunnyville Stories #15, Sunnyville Stories #16 and a bonus three-page story NOT available anywhere else!  Each copy will be signed & numbered by me much like with the first Sunnyville Super Special.  The goal that we aim to raise will be a total of US$250.  So now let’s take a look at the breakdown of those costs, shall we?   Continue reading

On Sunnyville Books and Other Books

I am sorry, everyone, about not updating yesterday.  Heat has come here to Fargo of the Upper Great Plains.  The heat drained my energy.  I guess I should enjoy this heat while I can; soon enough, snow and ice will return.  But enough about that.

I have some announcements to make and it is about my books, both Sunnyville Stories and other creative works.  In regards to those, I have good news and bad news.   Continue reading

Etsy, Facebook and other Notes

This is a short post today.  On a personal note, I’m busy cleaning out my living quarters and work area.  In spite of that, I do have some brief announcements.

Remember my webcomic Tiffany & Corey?  This webcomic now has its own Facebook fan page.  Be sure to check it out and like the page too.

Also, I want to remind all of you that I’m active again over on Etsy.  You can buy comics and original artwork of mine over there so be sure to do that today.

One more note – I am still waiting for the Sunnyville #17 comics to come in that was funded by the Kickstarter.  I’m going to check on that this week and report on what’s going on.  Those should be coming any time now.

That’s it for now.  Until next time, fans!
