Latest BMP July News!

 We've had our heads down for the last few weeks so need to give you a quick update on what we've been up to. So here goes:

  • Looks like we'll be doing a comics exhibition with several other Aussie comikers at Liverpool City Library on Halloween – Thursday 31 October 2013 from 4pm to 8pm. We'll post more info when it's available.
  • The first print run of Elf~Fin: Hyfus and Tilaweed #1 is 60% sold out and the feedback we're getting from readers is fantastic. We attracted many new readers at Supanova Sydney last month so we're thrilled about that. Just click on this Elf~Fin link if you want to order a copy for yourself. In the interim, Jozef is busy working on the second issue artwork. We found that we needed some additional designs for new cast members so he revealed those yesterday – pretty astounding. Now he just has to finish the costuming... Some reveals coming soon!
  • We're busy working on a bold new initiative which will be launched next month–the BMP professional development arm known as Comics Masterclass. More info to come as we finalise the details and the talent, activate the logo officially and launch the website.
  • We also recently relaunched the Black Mermaid Productions website with a fantastic new art gallery, which features portfolios of our current comics work, our videos and the entire catalogue of Black Mermaid® images. We've got a bit more tinkering to do but you should get the full grand effect right now.
