Dear ladies and gentleman:

Here is an update on myself and The Poet and the Flea:

  • Please check out my recently revamped homepage: gegallas.com.
  •  I’m continuing to enjoy the “Publication Design with InDesign” class I’m taking. I just completed a newsletter project I created about independent comics and I’ll be starting a pamphlet project, for which I’d like to use some William Blake pieces.
  • PROGRESS: I’m excited to announce that I’ve completed penciling up to page 95 (= first volume) of The Poet and the Flea!!! My goal is to at least finish inking up to page 95 before June and hopefully finish shading sometime this summer. Wish me luck!  :)

Dear ladies and gentleman:

Here is an update on myself and The Poet and the Flea:

  • In February, I had a wonderful time as a guest speaker for Diane Critchfield’s “British Literature II” course at Germanna Community College in Fredericksburg, Virginia. You can read more about it here (gegallas.wordpress.com/2015/02/25/fredericksburg-virginia-february-2015).
  • If you’re on Tumblr, please check out my recently revamped Tumblr blog: gegallas-writer-illustrator.tumblr.com.
  • For the past few months, I’ve been doing very well in “Publication Design with InDesign” and am putting together a strong portfolio that I can’t wait to share with you all.
  • PROGRESS: I’m excited to announce that I’ve completed up to page 60 of The Poet and the Flea. Right now, I’m making progress on pages 61-70 and hope to finish them sometime next month. My goal is to finish the first volume (95 pages) before June or at least some time this summer. Wish me…

A few weeks ago, I spoke upon invitation to Germanna Community College in Fredericksburg, Virginia and had an amazing time. Beforehand, I worked very hard to write a brand new talk about William Blake and The Poet and the Flea, and created a fun slideshow to go with it. So I was very pleased that the students seemed to really enjoy my presentation. I also had a little time to check out historic Fredericksburg, which was great. :) I would love to do this again next year!
