• The August Nocturnal Reader’s Box

      by Kay on September 12, 2017 , 8 Comments

      Back in July, I treated myself to a new subscription box. Specifically, a horror themed book box called The Nocturnal Reader’s Box. As a horror fan I was intrigued by this box, and with August’s theme being Infected and Infested, I couldn’t pass it up. The Nocturnal Reader’s box showed up at my PO Box last month and I couldn’t wait to see what was inside! Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. The first thing I pulled out was this fantastic baseball hat. Captain Trips is a reference to Stephen King’s The Stand – it’s one of the […]

    • The Pokemon GO Book Tag!

      by Kay on August 27, 2016 , 24 Comments

      A couple weeks ago I saw Kristin (aka SuperSpaceChick) do this Pokemon GO book tag on her wonderful YouTube channel and decided to join in! Really, it’s because it gave me an excuse to sketch up some Pokemon in my free time, which was awesome. This tag was originally created by Read at Midnight (check her post here!) Read on for book chats and cute Pokemon doodles! For the longest time in elementary school, I was obsessed with The Baby-Sitter’s Club series. It’s all I read. But then, in a bookstore one day, I stumbled upon The Daydreamer by Ian […]

    • New Art Books!

      by Kay on July 20, 2016 , 10 Comments

      For today’s art post I wanted to share a few new art books I’ve acquired recently. I swear, at some point, I will actually have my OWN art here on the blog again, but man….life. Lately it’s been taking priority. Anywho, onto the awesome art! First up was a Kickstarter project I backed for the book Exodus: The Art of Michael C. Hayes. This was actually his third art book (all via Kickstarter I do believe!) and it was worth every penny of my pledge. I also completely forgot I’d selected the reward for his second book as well, so […]

    • Potter Month: The Harry Potter Spells Book Tag

      by Kay on July 15, 2016 , 15 Comments

      The fantastic Kristin (aka SuperSpaceChick and one of the Potter Month hosts!) tagged me for this epic Harry Potter Spells Book Tag. This may be my first book tag here on the blog, and I’m so excited to share it! I could chat about books forever. Warning, a few of the blurbs contains some spoilers about the featured book! Alrighty, let’s get to it. An Upcoming Release You Wish You Could Get Your Hands On Right Now I am utter crap about reading new release books, but I thoroughly enjoyed Six of Crows, and can’t wait for Crooked Kingdom by […]

    • Image+ Magazine

      by Kay on July 13, 2016 , 4 Comments

      Today’s art post is all about Image+ magazine. I snagged a copy of this back in May on Free Comic Book Day but I’ve only just recently sat down to read it through thoroughly. And I am sad that I waited so long. I absolutely love it! Image+ magazine (Issue #1) is packed with fantastic articles, from so many different creators in the comics industry. It had interviews from artists, writers, colorists and more, along with a fantastic balance of both female and male creators, which I think is really important. While I don’t currently have any comic making plans, […]

    • Art Books: Crowdfunding

      by Kay on March 30, 2016 , 16 Comments

      It’s time for another installment of Art Books!  (Check out the first and second Art Books posts too!)  Today, I wanted to share with you my favorite method of finding and acquiring new art books: crowdfunding. Sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are such a great way to find new art projects to support. Plus, they ensure that you are directly supporting the artist, and I think that’s really important. In addition to directly supporting artists, crowdfunding also has a plethora of choices to look through when it comes to art books. They range from the standard collection of works by […]
