I didn’t plan it that way, but it seems like it’s all happening this week. My short film “Her Lion’s Jump” was selected to screen at Comic Con, which is fantastic, of course, but its screening schedule is right against “the 9 panel” so, I’ll be missing all the audience excitement for that. And I can only imagine it will be intense if the panel at Wondercon was any indication, plus this one has most of the cast, Shane himself, some surprise guests, and heck, it follows the Hayao Miyazaki panel! But, it’s all good, I’ll come prepared. So much so that I’ll be in and out of the Con very quickly, to see the master himself in Berkeley on Saturday. I presume the Miyazaki lecture up north will be more civilized, or maybe just lacking fanboys with 15 part questions… oh wait, I’ll be there! 0~0

Anyway, prior to all this crazyness, I’ll get to watch 9 before all y’all (suckas!) in just a couple of days, and I can’t wait. From what I’ve heard the reviews have been positive, so I’m definitely hyped… well, I have been for the past 3 years since I last worked on it! O_O

As the title of the post says, I’m still working on “Hockey, Love, & GUTS!” but this past month has kept me busy with doing storyboard tests here and there (I can has job nao plz) as well as visiting family that I haven’t seen for years. So, for now, I’ll post some rough previews of Chapter 3 of HLG, and next time I’ll put together some more sketches.
