August 2016 Update

Hello Everyone,
Tracy speaking. Today's post will be a short one focusing on our migration away from blogger and onto GeminiJourney.com and our comic launch in the fall.

Comic News
Our first story arc, The Great Barley and Bay-lily Circus, is still underway with Yesenia and I about 1/3 of the way through the story.

The whole process has been fun for Yesenia and I overall, and we're excited to release the comic soon!

General Updates
We are on schedule for our planned release the comic this Fall, and with this in mind, this will be our last post to this blog before migrating onto our new site, GeminiJourney.com. We've shown our planned webdesign in an earlier post, but the site will not be live until the comic launch. While we work on the Gemini Journey series, we will continue to update our tumblr with mini-comics, illustrations, and any fan works from you! You can also continue to contact us on our Tumblr, Facebook, Deviantart, or my twitter - which I use often. Thank you all for your continued support!

May Update- Extra Art, Comic and Website Progress

Hello everyone! Tracy writing. This month’s update is a reminder about where you can follow more Gemini Journey work on social media, features we've received, and our progress with our comic and website.

Where to Find Us Online
You can find more Gemini Journey work on my other social media sites, such as my Tumblr, Deviantart,  and now my personal Twitter! You can also follow the official Gemini Journey Tumblr for only GJ-related posts. On these sites, you'll see work like these Gemini and Teacup Manticore pinups:

And other sketches and random things:

Behance and AIGA features Gemini Journey
On May 25th, our proof of concept comics were featured on AIGA portfolios: !



And, our Gemini Journey character designs were  also featured on Behance's illustration served back in August:


We're very grateful for the encouraging recognition, and we will continue to work hard providing quality content.

Comic and Website Progress 
So far, the comic is coming along nicely. Yesenia and I continue to meet our goal every week and we're excited to share our content with you all.

Meanwhile, the talented and gracious Peter and Company creator, Jonathon Ponikvar, is coding our website for us while we build the comic queue. When the site is done, we'll announce an official launch date.

Until then, we hope you'll all stick with us, and we appreciate your support along the way!

Website and Webcomic Underway


Hello everyone!
 
Tracy writing.
Today is a progress update. As you may know, we hope to release our official comic later this year, and we're working hard to make that happen!

Yesenia is working on the design of our website (below).

And I'm still drawing the pencils of the comic. Currently, I've cleaned up a few updates worth of panels, and most of it is still in the roughs.

Updates will likely be small until our release, since we are continuing to work on the same project- and don't want to spoil it!- and then we'll also likely slowly phase out this blog after that. Until then, we will be writing next month about our further progress (and possibly showing off some 3D models I made for the backgrounds).

Barley & Bay-Lily Underway

Hello everyone!

Tracy writing. Today is just a quick update on where we are with Gemini Journey. Currently, we're working on the comic (preview rough panel, below) and our website.


We're ahead of schedule for both, and hope to release the comic on the site in May or June of this year. Until then, updates will be sparse, but you can watch our tumblr or facebook for announcements of the comic's launch!

Here There Be Dragons + Barley & Bay-Llily


Hi all,
This is Tracy speaking.

With the new year comes some exciting new updates. To end the year, we released our first mini comic, Here There be Dragons, as a style and process test for the first installment of Gemini Journey's Official comic. We are also working on character designs for villains in the first story arc, The Great Barley and Bay-Lilly Circus, and are working towards creating the actual comic.

The story follows Gemini as she searches for a job and becomes involved in a mysterious circus .....
Barley and Bay-Lilly are the twin ringmasters.

A small look into some concept work for the ringmasters.

Our mini comic, Here, There Be Dragons,  is available to read on our Tumblr and my Deviant Art. It was a lot of work, but Yesenia and I figured out a process that works for us. As a surprise to me for Christmas, Yesenia even printed it as a softcover book!


Thank you all for your continued support and we hope you had an equally great holiday season! If you wish, leave us a comment below in the comments section or contact us via facebook or tumblr note.
