Launching into 2015

Hey everyone! I can't believe it's already 2015! January is almost over and it still hasn't sunk in for me yet :P

This year had a very rough start. Soon after Christmas a friend of mine passed away and I've been in an emotional funk ever since. My day job has kept me busy but I still turn to art for solace so I haven't been idle in that area. I have been working on story boards for the next Alencia book as well as book 1 of "Unintentionally Alice" which I've decided I really want to finish this year. This book will be special as my partner in crime Ryan is the writer for this project. This book will also be half comic, and half art book as I have been collecting many drawings and illustrations for the soon to be series. It will also be my first completely colored project, as my comics tend to have grey-scale or black and white interior pages. Lots of firsts for this next book! I'm not sure if the next Alencia book, "Voice in the Walls" will be completed this year but I hope to at least get most of it finished before the year's end.

Today I also managed to get new online store launched! I will now be selling my comics and artwork at http://franrowanart.storenvy.com/  Right now I have the first two Alencia books, the last of my Kale books, 6x9" prints, and some jewelry up for sale, but I will have more jewelry and LOTS of original artwork up for sale soon. So be sure to keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks!

My new store! Featuring an Alencia inspired color scheme.

I've also got a give-away coming up soon where I will be giving out some copies of "Alencia: Tomb of the Unspoken," as well as prints and other special prizes! Info for that will be coming very soon!

And before I go I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your support! It means so much to me when folks talk comics with me and give me words of encouragement. Thanks everybody!
