Future prints and setting up the website! ^^  
Okay!! ^^ I'm working on a set of prints that will be related to my in-development webcomic (more info later, to be announced soon!) and to several other projects that I've worked on or am working on! They're not ready yet, but they'll be good, probably B4 size (unsure just yet, however. Possibly A4. It depends. I'm also considering postcards), and they will all be individually hand-signed by me. The prices on the prints will depend on the type of materials, but I'm looking at around $10 each (USD), depending on quantity and quality of course! They will probably go up for sale either at the end of this month, or at the end of this week, depending on several factors (namely that I have to be in the Tenipuri studio most of the month, so I don't know if I will have the time to get everything set up before I get in. I will try, but quality takes time!).

But I'd like to offer a deal! I'd like to build up some money with which to get the new URLs and with which to experiment with different printing places!! So I'm asking for donations-- Temporarily unavailable

It's not exactly donations.. I guess in a weird way, it's like an investment..? The amount is up to you, but basically, for every $10 (USD) that you donate, I'll give you two prints of your choice for free after they are ready to go out (near the end of this month). In effect, making this a little bit like a pre-sale! I know that you haven't seen them yet, but if you think that you'd like to have some of the first prints that I've ever sold, then it'd be a good deal for you and a big help for me! And if you don't want any of these next prints for some reason, don't worry, because I will keep full track and you can choose future prints if you so wish instead, or we can work something else out. ^^

What do you think? This is a big experiment for me, too. And who knows... when I finally publish my own first manga work, you'd have a real collectivble! Hand-numbered and signed. =D (and my appreciation, though that's not worth any money!).

Well... that's that! I'll get to work on things now! ^^

Web design.
Hey :) I spoke to my friend who's good at the web design ^_^

He said he doesn't have that much time to devote to trying to design the blog site for you, but he's an anime fan and when I mentioned you were a mangaka's assistant and stuff he seemed more interested in doing it :P He said he could do some mock ups for you to look at and asked for links to any examples of your work, because sometimes it can give him idea on what kind of design people are looking for ^_^

That, to me, sounds like he's much more interested than initially stated XD I'll pester him as time goes on and keep you posted ;) That is, if you're interested in seeing what he comes up with based on his work with www.agendasource.com ? :)

You can see more of the kind of thing he does, like, other mockups and things here:
Also, he said he wishes you had a deviant art account, and he was impressed with your background practice, which I also was ^_^ Actually? You know what? Screw it, here's the conversation XD :


Josh says:
Well after this exam on Tuesday I'll see
I can't put tonnes of time into it but I can do a mockup
and you can show her

...*irrelevant stuff about redesigning agendasource and at some point asking for examples of your work*...

Josh says:
background practice is :O:O:O:O:O:O:O:O:O
Carrie says:
I wish i could do that T_T
Josh says:
I love that style of drawing
and ditto
they're cool
Carrie says:
I know, I wanted one lol! Especially the one with the red hair
Josh says:
Black and white anything is instant love from me

And there you have it lol :P Anyway, I've spent enough time procrastinating from revising for my exam tomorrow XD ^_^

Good luck with the new blog site and everything else, and I hope things start looking a little brighter for you soon :) I look forward to when you finally do have a new site! ^_^,
Carrie xxoo

Re: Web design.
ah,that's awesome! I'd love his help, assuming that he has the time!

I do have a deviantart, but I don't really use it >> hinoai.deviantart.com

I'm probably going to use art from one of the new prints to design it around.

Re: Web design.
Right, I'll let him know that you'd like to have one of your prints included in the design somehow ^_^ And I'll link him to your deviantart account despite the fact you don't really use it XD

For curiosity's sake, can I ask how many people have donated so far? I only want to know purely because I'm nosy ^_^ XD
