Risks and challenges
Cover artwork is complete. All that is left is interior artwork, which will be completed by June 2019, to allow for printing, bindery, production and shipping by July 2019! I am dedicated to completing the interior artwork on time, and see only a minimal amount of potential challenge in time, which already is a non-issue. This is my current only project, so all artistic time will be dedicated to completing this project.
Other than that, there is nothing outstanding in terms of issues or risk!
I personally have years of producing limited edition books and products, including for other successful Kickstarter campaigns. I recently wrapped my first campaign and shipped the following month after! I will have a hand in the physical printing and assembly of all products, so I will have a far more careful and closer eye on quality and production as it happens than others are privy to. Since I will be conducting diligent quality control, I can catch and fix issues when and if they arise during production, and completely avert delaying the shipping of this project.
Every single package I have ever shipped has arrived undamaged. I pack and secure each shipment for complete protection in shipping. This is another field I have years of experience in. In the event a package does arrive with damaged product, I will replace it for you. I have a stellar track record with delivery, and strive to maintain that record! I take great pride in delivering quality product, and it serves me no purpose to disappoint my customers or fans. NO BUBBLE MAILERS!!! All sturdy cardboard packages, and all contents are bagged and boarded for protection.
I also maintain excellent communication throughout the ordering process, and am not hard to find. I love what I do, and am always happy to chat about questions or concerns!
I DO NOT SHIP MEDIA MAIL! I ship First Class or Priority Mail only. You’ve already been patient through the Kickstarter process, I do not want to incur any further delays in you receiving your product.
Thank you all SO much for being a part of this! The Changeling is getting bigger and better for this installment! Let’s keep the momentum going!
This weekend, the Fiends will descend onto The Marriott in downtown Mesa, Arizona for Fiend Fest! They’re coming from all over the country to party and celebrate the beloved creation of Lady Death! Brian Pulido and the Coffin Comics crew are responsible for making this madness happen.
I’ll be in the company of some spectacular guests, many of whom I have the privilege to call friends!
I’ll have an exclusive cover available for ticketholders for the event!
This Lady Death: Nightmare Symphony Trio Edition features all three leading ladies of the Coffinverse! This one is super-limited to 66 copies!
I’ll also be offering 25% off EVERYTHING I am bringing with me this weekend! Gotta be there in person to jump in on these crazy sales! This also includes my newest book, The Changeling – Closeups, as well as the Pinups Valentine’s Editions!
Cara Nicole will also be hanging out with me this weekend, so you can get your Changeling Issue 1 Cosplay Edition signed by her and me! Gonna be a rocking time at Fiend Fest!
The last 30 days have been the strongest of my art career, without a doubt. AZEventureCon was certainly a shot in the arm for myself and the AyeDee Studio brand!
The Book signing on Saturday of the event was packed! I got to sign all of my Lady Death Necromancer covers, and the book was a legit sell out! Thank you SO much to everyone who picked up a copy! Also have to give a HUGE thanks to Brian & Francisca Pulido and the Coffin Comics crew for the rock star treatment, and giving me an incredible opportunity!
That rub definitely pushed things into high gear, as I have had a nonstop commission list since that show! It has been really awesome finding a crowd so receptive to The Changeling, as well as my artwork!
Books have been selling like crazy, and I decided to offer up something I never considered doing, but very grateful for doing so. I did an homage cover! The Changeling Issue 2 Homage Edition so far has been my biggest and fastest seller of any of my covers to date! I just shipped out a batch a few days ago, and still have about 5 copies left! So if you want to order one, no time like the present!
I’ve been humbled and honored at the growth this past month, and hope to keep the momentum going! I have some rad ideas in the works, and I will be starting on issue 3 soon.
Thank you all for your continued support! You rock!
This weekend at Jesse James Comics in Glendale, I will be exhibiting at AZEventureCon! Kevin Eastman and Brian Pulido will be headlining Saturday’s event. There will also be a who’s who of Arizona’s most awesome and creative talent! I will be there both Saturday and Sunday, and will be debuting two new covers of mine!
First off is The Changeling – Issue 2 Empress Edition! This one features a glossy card stock cover, and is limited to 25 copies. This edition will be selling for $15 each! Book purchase comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. This cover started out as a sketch cover, and from there I scanned it and touched it up digitally until I got the results you see here! I personally love how this one came out. You can preorder a copy right here in the Shop!
The next one I am so, SO happy to announce! I was recently commissioned to do my very first Lady Death cover, and it will be debuting this weekend at AZEventureCon as a Jesse James Comics exclusive! This is the Lady Death – Issue 1 Necromancer Edition. Only 66 copies of this book will be available! This edition will be selling for $20 each, and will only be available through Jesse James Comics! They will be on hand at the show, so make sure to grab your copy and bring it by my table for a signature and a high five!
Hope to see you all there this weekend! I’m so excited for this show! Tickets are $6.00/day, and $10.00 for both days. Kids 12 and under are free!

It’s been a while since I posted on here. Been real busy with the day job, and have been steadily working on something either art-wise or printing-wise! A lot of work went into getting everything together for my fellow artists attending Phoenix Comicon this past weekend, and now I finally have a bit of time to recover and get some things updated that were long overdue! I’m on the wait list for that show, so I am hoping to be able to exhibit there one day. Now I am getting ready for the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con!
I added my newest piece, Video Kid, to the store. I also managed to sell out of my #hiptobesquare Art Book! I’m thrilled I managed to get all my copis of that book into other people’s hands!
The weather hasn’t been too kind to me lately in terms of selling outdoors, so the past few months have been a bit rough. However, next week is Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con, and it should be a great time and I’m hoping I’ll do well! I’ll be sharing a booth (Booth #620) with the ever awesome Squee-Queen April Reyna! She’s such a dear friend who allowed me the opportunity to share her space with me.
We’ll also be traveling in style, as I managed to finally get a road-worthy vehicle! I acquired a 2008 GMC Envoy SUV, so the travel will be comfortable and accommodating for more than one person!
Make sure to stop by and see April and I next weekend, and pick up some art from us! Hope to see you there!
Man, it’s been a while since I had the opportunity to post on here! It’s been a bit of a rough patch for myself, with horrible luck trying to buy a car, find a new place to live, and find space and time to create.
