Open Spaces and Closed Places #2



I have started uploading the second issue of OSCP today! Only the cover is up today but pages of the comic go up every Wednesday and Sunday.

If you would like to order a hard copy of the book, please visit my website. The third issue is already out and the book is perfect bound by hand and is 88 pages- even longer than the first and second issue combined. :-)

A big thank you to everyone who has supported this comic thus far. I hope that you will enjoy reading the second issue. :-)

MoCCA

I'm going to be at the MoCCA Arts Festival in New York City this weekend (June 6-7). I will be sharing a table with Matthew Hawkins, Hilary Florido, and Katie Skelly. Our table number is 232. Please come visit us if you are in town. There should be lots of really exciting, up and coming comic artists as the show.

I will be selling copies of OSCP and the first issue of a new mini I just finished called Sunflower Club.

As for OSCP, the online web comic version, issue one will conclude this Sunday. I will take a break and continue updating with issue two or some new materials on June 14th.

Thank you for your support of the comic so far! I appreciate everyone's comments here! They give me motivation to keep working on the comic. :-)

Update Schedule

I decided that I will upload two pages each week every Sunday and Wednesday. Issue one should be completely uploaded in nine weeks! Is this schedule too slow? I don't want to upload it too quickly because I feel bad for people who paid for a physical copy of the first issue so I don't know what I should do really. D:

Open Spaces and Closed Places #1



I am in the process of uploading the first few pages of OSCP#1 since I have already sold out of the first issue. I assure you that the artwork in the comic gets so much better by the second issue. But I will reprint the first issue soon in preparation for convention events this summer. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and bought the first two issues of OSCP and gave me the motivation to keep drawing the story!!

Looking back at the first issue, it is really embarrassing how bad the art is. I was going to redraw it but several people suggested that I shouldn't, plus I am busy working on new comics and stuff so I won't bother.

Anyway, I will post more pages at least once a week.

Please check out my website: http://www.saicoink.com for more contents and information on the series. In addition, you can order the second issue as well as prints etc. on the site as well.

I am currently working on the third issue of OSCP for release at the end of May for Anime North. I will put more news and previews soon!
