Lots of Ideas....

Tue Jan 21, 2014, 10:07 PM
So I have a lot of things I want to work on and not a lot of time to do it.

I have a Black & White Manga series that I have been itching to do for over 10 years now.

I have a Book series that I can't decide should be a full blown color comic or a prose novel.

I have my regency thing (which is still kinda secret).

And I have a super hero Idea that I'm pretty sure no publisher will ever touch, lol!

This coupled with a job hunt and a number of children's books I'm committed to doing makes my time woefully ill suited to accommodate all that I want to accomplish. 

I want the pill from American Dad that can allow you to no sleep with no side effects (and maybe fly just the once). I could probably do it if I didn't have to sleep.

  • Listening to: Make Me Wanna Die - by The Pretty Reckless
  • Reading: Gladestone's School for World Conquerors
  • Watching: American Horror Story: Coven
  • Playing: Web Sudoku
  • Eating: Banana Bread
  • Drinking: Water

I Want To See More Issues of C.o.G. (Chronicles of Genius)

Mara Aum
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
Mara Aum was born in Venezuela, South America but grew up primarily in the US in the Chicago-land area. She was encouraged to tell stories and draw at an early age creating a near clinically insane overactive imagination and a near manic need to draw that would make Van Gogh proud. She discovered comics and manga in her early teens finding it the perfect union of her two all consuming passions. She even went so far as to mortgage her soul to student loan devils so she could major in Sequential Art at Savannah College of Art & Design, where her “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” attitude paid off in her Summa Cum Laude degree. She is currently refinancing her soul to continue her education in illustration at the University of Edinburgh in the UK. Mara’s previous work ranges from writing to drawing to inking to toning to coloring. Her work can be seen in Adventures of CG! for CosmoGirl Magazine, Dark Moon Diary, Adventures in Ai Land, Sea Princess Azuri, and a slew of other titles that would make this a very long list. Currently, Mara is working on this blog to showcase her new Steampunk Project: Cog Chronicles. What the story unfold step by step and see the graphic novel take shape!
