Season's Greetings!  May hot chocolate grace the cups of all, and little marshmallows bring tidings of joy and diabetes.  

   First off, I want to thank everyone from Midwest Furfest this year.  Without going into detail, Liz and I have so much to be grateful for.  The generosity and kindness given us was flat out incredible- thank you!  

Totally makes up for the whole chlorine gas thing.

We tried out something new at MWFF this year.  No, not terrorism- Liz made the mistake of putting blank ornaments and metallic sharpie markers in my general area- and we discovered that we can create custom decorations.  Out of our experimental eight-pack, we sold all but one:

Ornament 2014 Lilith by Dreamkeepers 

We'll auction off the surviving ornament, along with its friend that we created to test shiny surfaces.  

Ornament 2014 Mace by Dreamkeepers 

I didn't want to dump something unexpected and tempting on people right in the middle of their gift budgeting, so we'll launch the auction after Christmas.  Catch our newsletter for the announcement:  www.dreamkeeperscomic.com/News…

We'll likely create another round of ornaments for next year's Midwest Furfest, especially since we can customize them on site for people.  Additionally, Liz has discovered a method for making sharpie artwork permanent, even washable, on ceramic mugs- so we might bring those around next year too.

Thanks for reading- I hope your holidays are fantastic!  Watch out for Krampus, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Festivus maximus, and Dies Natalis Solis Invicti to all.

Sanguine Games is fulfilling the fruits of their latest Kickstarter, "Myriad Quest."  I got my copy at Anthrocon, and wanted to share what I found between the covers.

   My foremost note:  This is a black and white comic- and it's a visual feast.  It's evident enough I love color, but sometimes black and white can be mastered in such a way that it surpasses the need for chroma.  Matt Howarth's artistry accomplishes that here.

Two words for the images:  Bold and rich.  Stark shadows and silhouettes catch the eye, large pools of black contrasting with lightness, and everywhere texture.  A galaxy of texture:  Hatching, cross hatching, stippling, stroking, scaling, fading, textures they haven't even made words for.  Portraying asteroids, molten rock, swirling black holes and stellar phenomenon- combined with the sharply stylized figures, the effect is utterly distinctive.   It's retro, reminiscent of R. Crumb combined with an angular Soviet propaganda poster.  Mix it with sci-fi, and the style is the culmination of a unique artistic perspective honed over years.  

The art was the primary appeal for me, as I didn't find myself growing attached to the characters.  The cold-as-steel soldier, paired with a selfish aristocrat, didn't do much to pull on my heartstrings.  But that's a personal preference, as sci-fi is typically a vehicle for exploring concepts and ideas.  Which Myriad Quest has in spades- from animated sentient molds to lost caches of exo-spatial technology to the seedy underbelly of the galactic black market.  

Myriad Quest is in the setting of Sanguine's fully formed RPG, Myriad Song.  Check out the game and the comic here:  rpg.drivethrustuff.com/browse.…  

See you later, Space cowboy.

Gregori Ruins Everything by Dreamkeepers
Gregori Ruins Everything
Because it was obviously Gregori.  See, he's laying next to the marker and everything.  What does she need to do, draw you a diagram?  Don't get mad at Namah, punish the green one.  Jeez, he's so irresponsible.

Last month's vote incentive- we've got a new one up here:  topwebcomics.com/vote/8236/def…  

Remember to vote for us!  Because the other candidate is evil.

Prelude 281 by Dreamkeepers
Prelude 281
Dave: Can't argue with the logic of that last line. It's the little known secret to the success of those air pirates in Talespin. ...They were successful, right?

Liz: I really like the design of Vanth’s bedroom, with the mini staircase that leads up to a window, it seems like the ideal setting for any child. I’m sure that Vanth considers herself a prisoner, much like Namah, but there’s clearly more love and custom care invested in her surroundings. It’s important to remember the difference - Namah is in the tower because of her parental politics. Vanth is in her room to keep her safe.

Hi! I just found Dreamkeepers and I can't get enough of it! It honestly is the comic that I've been looking for. Thank you so much for your awesome work.

Will you ever get some posters back in stock? I'd love to own some.

I love the multicolored LineArt you draw with colored ink, what pen set do you use to color pencil lines with colored ink, Dave?

Is there going to be an extra update on the Graphic novel saga this week? Because last week I think only two pages were posted.

P.S. I just got my Halloween sticker today and I absolutely LOVE IT!!!! AND the envelope it was sent in! Gregori looks awesome as a little ghost!

I'm curious, will there by any chance one day be prelude comics pertaining to Bast's backstory?
