I’m pleased to announce that I’m finally feeling far enough ahead to make two Mermaid Music posts a week! The webcomic will now update on Fridays and Mondays. My ultimate goal is to be able to do three times a week, hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
I’m planning to have the first chapter of 36 pages in print before VanCAF in late May, after which I’ll take a breather of a week or two to get the next chapter underway. But don’t worry, there will be mermaid art to fill the gap — here’s a way-ahead teaser!

For those of you who have been following my other blog, Karen Gillmore Art, you’ll know that I’ve been deeply immersed in preparations for the Camosun Comic Arts Festival, mainly as the coordinator of the Indiegogo fundraiser. It’s now less than a week away, and I’m gearing up to have a table there to display my work. If you are in the Victoria, BC area, do come this Saturday, April 11th, for the afternoon — we’re going to have lots of comics to see, creators to talk to, and things to do. I’ll have comics and art prints for sale, and some originals to look at (including Mermaid Music).
There will also be a keynote panel talk the evening before, with several great local comics artists giving their take on what it’s like to be in the comics business today, and talking about their work.
Hope to see you there!
My table last year at CCAF (which was then called the Camosun College Comics Conference — we were into alliteration!). I got a luxurious amount of space last year! That’s my handsome hubby, Ron, holding down the fort while I take pictures.
