Get it over with!
by Julia KaNeko

Posting a blog on here about what's going to be happening with Book 2. I honestly want it done and over with so I can get working on Book 3. Why the rush? Well, Books one and two will be redone in the future(maybe) since I've taken on a new drawing style.

Here is how it's gonna go down. Book 2 will be posted in it's black & white inked form and pages will be updated whenever I see the time, however with Book 3 and above, there will be a set schedule.

Second, if I do see the time of redoing Book 1 and 2, I'll repost it up on here. :P No promises, though.

Hmm... What else? Um... Well, I guess it a nutshell, I just want to get this book done and over with. Sounds confusing but my brain and body conflict with eachother A LOT.

"I need to get back to updating the series!" -brain

"Naaaaaaah, we gots plenty of time. Why the rush? Besides, you just got off work! Lay back and relax." -body

"...Dammit, I hate you SO fuckin' much. You KNOW I wanna draw!" -brain

"Yeah, but then this happened. I get final say, so suck it." -body

"...Alright. We'll see about that..."

"...We'll see..." -brain

 

...See what I gotta deal with?! >_< So! in the end, the brain won this round and it's gonna seize the moment and keep drawing!

 

Gonna continue updating the fuck outta this and get closer to Book 3. I apologize for the long wait, but if you want more info, I do have the FaceBook fanpage. And Twitter!

WE'RE BACK, BITCHES!!! >:3
by Julia KaNeko

We're back to updating!!! Whoo!!! Did you miss me? Huh? I bet you did... 

(Tama) Well, you DO have a life, I mean, geez... Like, you moved from north to south, not to mention from east to west on a month-long vacation and to top it all off, you got a driver's permit, a job and a second seasonal job! Bonus is getting the new smartphone. That's what really saved us.

I-I know! Still, trying to get use to having to work this thing.

(Tama) If you wanted something simple and dumbed down, shoulda gotten an iPhone.

...Wow. *tries not to laugh* U-Um, anyways, thanks to this new phone of mine, I downloaded a scanner app. It's proving to be quite useful so far. There shall be more updates to come, so I hope you're ready for it!

(Tama) Don't worry, after such a long wait, I'm still as cute and sexy as ever--even more so! My boobs grew SOOOOO big--

ANYWAYS!!! ...There will be more updates soon.

Promoting "A Simple Life" and Changes
by Julia KaNeko

Hello all! I just thought I take a moment and write a note or maybe notes until I get things settled in my end. I just recently moved in with my fiance` so... Yeah. He has all the things I need for me to thankfully continue updating the series. BUT, he needs the cables in order for them to work. Lazy wolf needs to help me out and find it for moi. There's also the matter of me redownloading the Paint.NET program I always use, but he has Photoshop on this laptop of his so I may tinker with that for a bit. Anyways, lemme get to the point of the title.

PROMOTING "A SIMPLE LIFE" AND CHANGES

Now, I was having a bit of a chat with my fiance`'s parents and they were thinking that I should promote the comic a bit more and even make some profit off of it since I'm putting a lot of work and dedication into this series. And they kinda make a point in a way seeing as how art supplies aren't that cheap. Especially since I'm considering going for color pencil to duo-ended... duel-ended... doubled-ended...? Those PrismaCOLOR art markers with the nubs on each end! XP

ANYWAYS, I'm going to be selling some items in order to make a bit of profit. Now not only will be selling these online, but I'll also be selling them at conventions as well! (that being said, when I start doing conventions, I'll inform you guys what convention it'll be, what state, what time and where I'll be located! M'kay?) The items I'll b selling won't be all fancy like bod pillows or cosplay outfits, but simple things that'll be special in it's own way...

  • A Simple Life T-shirts
  • A Simple Life 2013 calenders
  • A Simple Life bookmarks
  • (and maybe hopefully) A Simple Life D'Light special comic

 

And having said that, I want some feedback on what items you'd be willing to get given the opportunity, so please, don't be shy!

As for changes in the comic series, as I stated earlier, I am considering switching to marker. Bristol paper and marker. It'll make the comic a bit thicker, but I dunno how much, if not at all, PrismaCOLOR markers bleed. However, I think it'll give the comic a nicer look, don't you think? I'm not sure myslf, because I never drew in marker before, (unless you count elementary school) but it's nice to have a challenge. What beats a failure? An effort.

Well, I think that's all I have to say--OH! Wait, wait, wait. I have a bit of a month-long vacation coming in June that'll end in July, so if I get my scanner (if my fiance` is reading this, find those plugs I need for this complcted-lookin' machine) working, then I can do a few updates before we leave for my trip out west! Uber-yaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!

So, that's it! Don't forget to tell your friends about this page, share and "like" it (because I know you love it. Wanna give it a huggy squeeze?) and remember...

A simple life isn't always so simple...

 

P.S.,

My fiancé got the cables for the scanner--hopefully it'll work! :P

100 "likes" or bust!
by Julia KaNeko

Man, it's been a while since I last blogged on here...

 

Anyways, hello there! Julia KaNeko here.

 

Now, if some of you may or may not know, I have a Facebook fan-page http://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Simple-Life/140032319412616 where I post updates, D'lights and other things. That being in mind, as you can see the page has currently 57 "likes." And that was just from Book 1 and a long hiatus! Now if we were to get over 100 "likes," I got a special treat for my subscribers.

 

I won't tell you what it is exactly, but let's just say it'll be something that get to guys to keep on reading the series as it goes on. wink

 

Don't forget to subscribe, "like," and tell your friends!

 

And remember...

KaNeko, out!

A Simple Life, Book 2
by Julia KaNeko

Hello guys! Know it's been a while since an update, but if you look into the Facebook fanpage, you should know that Book 2 of "A Simple Life" will be release around Janurary, 2012.

Yep. New year, new book. So don't get all pouty, January is right around the corner and I'm working my tail off to get this book sketched out and inked.

Back when I was in the 10th grade, when I had originally did this, the series just stopped then and there due to the fact I lost inspiration and concentration, but if I can finish this book, this this would be a big milestone for me. ^^

Anywho, I hope you guys will like book 2 just as much as you liked book 1. I'm trying to add more pages to this book, to give the characters a bit of more of a back story of their past and whatnot and to give it more plot. Not just make it short and sweet. :/

See y'all next year! And remember...
