Second in the series of Santa Marina interviews.
It’s the end of summer and soon we’ll leave our games and rituals behind, a child’s treasure buried in the woods.
But, who will take care of the creature in the locked room?
Unspeakable is a coming of age story inspired by Lovecraft’s tales, available now in PDF for $2.90.
This PDF is a revised, expanded version of the storyline in the archives.
And it is done. There’s the last installment of this long comic, a small coda for 2013. I started it as a way to give a steady form and pace to The Secret Knots but in time it displayed its own complications, a rebellious story that kept changing its course and intent along the way. I faced several things I hadn’t worked on enough at this point: relying further on dialogue, a different pace, characterization. I failed in wonderful new ways in all of these aspects. There was a lot of learning over these months, so I can only be grateful. These are mistakes you can be friend with, annoying little voices that help you move forward in the end.
I hope some of you have enjoyed at some point this quirky adventure.
The Secret Knots will continue with new, short stories this year. Thanks for reading, staying around and thanks for all your feedback!
There’s a last round of commissions I’ll be delivering over the next weeks. If you are among those who haven’t had their request fulfilled yet, I haven’t forgot about you: immense thanks for your support and patience!
It’s been some months since I updated with the state of the funding and commissions so I need to give you an idea of what’s going on in that field. First of all, as I said somewhere before, the fund raiser was completely successful and I am enormously grateful to all of you for your monetary support, social media sharing and kind words. The goal was surpassed and the feedback and personal messages of appreciation I got were truly encouraging. Many thanks for everything.
Now, working on the commissions has been a lot slower than I’d want to. I’ve got a list which is more or less half done at this point, two or three months later. I intend to deliver the rest of the commissions on the next weeks, so thanks again for your patience. The list includes, besides personal portraits and fiction characters, working with poems and text, some of them original creations, so it has been a fun and diverse experience so far.
For those of you who donated and didn’t ask for a commission, please let me know if you haven’t received a couple of gifts I sent through the email. Let me know at my gmail, gemeloperverso.
That’s it for now. Thanks for being part of The Secret Knots.
