Apologies for the silence! Here's some doodles.

Last month was a bit intense, and it looks to continue in that fashion. Because I'm mainly working on things I can't show you, this blog has been a bit neglected :'(

But anyway! Here are some face doodles!

New Printing Service!

Hello my darlin's!

After getting some great advice from people at this year's Bristol Expo I've decided to trial a new printing service! I will be doing a general print run either every month or every other month (depending on demand) where you can have almost any of my art as a giclee print.



Have a look at some of my art on my site: www.jenniegyllblad.com

A4 prints will be £10 + postage, and A3 prints will be £25 + postage.
If you fancy a print of something, simply send me an email: jennie.gyllblad@gmail.com



Cheers!

Skal, Chapter 1, Page 3: Ink.

Alright folks, we're in business! As you may have heard on other social media, the Elysia Kickstarter got funded! So exciting times ahead! I'm going to be a full time comic book artist from now on. One of my side projects next to Elysia is my own story Skal.

So enough chat, let's get back to the drawing!

Elysia: 86% funded with 10 days to go!

Woop! Both me and Serena are extremely humbled by all the support we've been getting for our Elysia kickstarter and we are edging closer to our target as each day passes! There's still a bit to go, but with more people sharing and pledging we'll have a greater chance of living our dream :D

Now, if you read one of my previous blog posts on the subject (more specifically: this one), you may remember me talking about another comic-related announcement. I've kept a bit quiet about it for a while due to nervously watching our kickstarter (while chewing my nails off), and I didn't feel like I should start shouting about comics unless the kickstarter proved that people were happy to support something I was part of.

I think it's pretty clear now that a few of you out there like Elysia (thank you!) and if everything works out, I will be drawing comics for a living. My main project will (obviously) be Elysia, but I will finally have the time to focus on another comic on the side:

*squee!*
Page 3 is on my desk right now, staring at me longingly :D

Love you peeps! Stay classy <3

Elysia is 33% Funded in FOUR days! How amazeballs are you lot!?

To all of you who shared and pledged to our Elysia Kickstarter Project, thank you so much! It's been a crazy few days and both me and Serena have been absolutely delighted with all the support we've been getting so far!

If you haven't pledged and you may be thinking about it, remember that the £10 pledge will get you an invite to our launch party in London (along with a PDF copy of the first Elysia book)! So that's a tenner for free food and drinks AND the comic! Not bad, eh!? So help us out and we'll throw you an awesome shebang to say thank you <3

Lots of love from Elysia~



Oh and: finally, remember to be good this Easter... You never know who might be watching you..

WHY SO QUIET, BLOG? Oh, THAT's why!

Hi lovely people!

You may have noticed a distinct lack of updates for a whole -month- here. Now trust me, that wasn't because I was on some kind of holiday or just being lazy... There were things happening behind the scenes. Many things!

And it was all launched this morning!

The Elysia Kickstarter!

I have teamed up with Serena Obhrai, the writer and creator of Elysia, to illustrate an epic graphic novel in glorious full colour! You can find out more information about it by clicking the link above (plus there's a video showing us both talking about it!).

But this is a really huge step for me on a personal level. If you've followed my autobiographical webcomic Jenspiration, you'll probably be familiar with my own struggle to be a full time graphic novel artist along with paying the bills.


This kickstarter, if successful, would basically mean that I would earn a WAGE like a normal person while doing comic book work for a living! And I mean, PROPERLY for a living, not scraping by with a part time job and illustration commissions on the side to avoid slipping into debt. So yeah, this is pretty big.

In perhaps a week or so if the kickstarter seems to be doing alright, I'll have another comic related announcement for you! But I'll hold off for now due to this being so fresh and, really, anything can happen in the coming 29 days...


Love you guys, and stay classy! <3

Skal: Mushirah shisha painting.

Just Skal's main character having a lil smoke. :D

Elysia: Booze girls!

As I may have said before, I am currently working on a new graphic novel project called Elysia, which is in the beginning stages of designing characters and environments. Can't show too much yet, but here, have some booze girls!



(and yes, I only realised once I had scanned the picture that one of the legs looks a bit off. Damn!)
