The charming :iconnoradeshia: has begun to publish a series of illustrations about Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep and the other Outer Gods and Elder Ones, in a very cute way. She and I have even joined efforts in some illustrations, depicting her lovely Elder Ones and their grown-up versions.

Visit them! They will devour your soul kiss by kiss. (Also on amordecthulhu.blogspot.com )

As usual, I'm not dead (at least that's what the Doctor told me), but busy. 

I remember you, buddies, and I feel really pleased with every fav, watch and comment. I really do appreciate everything. But lately I have less time to be here. Anyway, I'm not gone, I'm planning on use DA for a lot of time.

Just felt neccesary to thank you all for your support. It means a lot to me.

Just a little busy with some proyects, but not too much of a online entreperneur, or whatever. I started recently other blog where I will be uploading my things, katakraos.blogspot.com and still working in a book of comic strips. It's a lot of work, but I'm slowly overcoming it.

Although I wish it was not so slow...

Thanks to all that have been concerned about me, and all the friends that still remain here, you are wonderful, people. Don't think that I have forget about you, ever ;)

May the Force be with all of you! ;)

I'm working now in the trade paperback of my webcomic "Historias de un friki con barbas" and retouching all the comic strips, to make the line appeal more to the eye in the printed edition… I'm hating my past self right now XD

Ando trabajando ahora en el recopilatorio de mi tebeo en línea "Historias de un friki con barbas", y retocando todas las tiras, para hacer la línea más atractiva al ojo en la edición impresa… Estoy odiando a mi yo del pasado ahora mismo XD

Having my hands a little full at the moment, I'm afraid that I won't be able to accept commissions in a while.

I'll open them again as soon as possible ;)

(Note 2: I'm trying to catch up here in DA, but I have my hands full at the moment. I'm trying to get everyone answered, looked at their work or else. I'm not forgetting about anyone)

Pues tenemos este sábado en Barcelona una cita, en el KBOOM kboombnc.com . Intervendré en una mesa redonda sobre webcomics con gente como Aitor I. Eraña, Isaac "Ismurg" Murgadella, Xabier "El Listo" Águeda, Andrés "Blip" Palominoy Juanjo "Runtime" Escofet. Será a las 16:00 horas, espero veros por ahí ;)

I think that the way to get better at your work (apart from practice, practice and practice, you can never forget that), is different in a way for everyone, but I'll speak today of what works for me.

I think that you get better the more your interest is caught in doing something. You do it with gusto, and you do it better. Also, challenging yourself, trying to do something new everytime you work, it's another fun way of learning. Proving new materials, techniques, even ways to draw something, altering your proportions, give yourself more room to play, if you are bad at backgrounds... do more backgrounds, and made them interesting for you...

Don't be afraid of those challenges, be brave, give yourself the possibility to fail, but keep trying until you make it, or at least, until you learn how it works, and then you'll be able to apply it correctly to a new work.

I'm a sort of kamikaze, I like to try new ways in the same paper that's gonna be the final work... but it works for me.

Don't be afraid. Experiment. Give yourself time to get crazy and go to those places that you never dared to go. Think out of the box.

Be creative.

Well, it's the same always. After reading things like "Los Profesionales" by Carlos Giménez or "Fuyu no dôbutsuen" by Jiro Taniguchi, you realize (again) that this profession stinks, is hard, ungrateful and purely based on pain and disrespect. But it's OK, it's part of the game. As Schulz said, comics will break you and your soul, but we have the power to mend our souls and get it to the next level, the main thing is keeping on going onwards, only looking behind to analyze and improve what we have learned, and to know that we have earned a little rest.

The other day, :iconterminaitor:, :iconolayavalle: and me were having some beers and talking about the difficulties and mistreating that drawing gives to us, but that you still keep going. Aitor also wrote (sorry, only spanish, but you can translate it in the net) aitorierana.tumblr.com/post/43… this about the subject.

What's the conclusion? That you just keep on working, and don't give up even if the odds seems to be all against you, because that thing that breaks your soul and continue on beating you down is the same that give you that little spark we call "life".

Pain, pleasure, duty and, above all, the satisfaction of a work that we do as best as we can within the time we have for that ;)

So, keep on going onwards, my friends, and don't ever give up. Try to improve, and give all to it... if you are so inclined ;)

See yah ;)
