Panacea

Latest Comic:
CH 01 PG 14
CH 01 PG 14

Caelen is part shapeshifter but his dual heritage becomes a curse when he learns his unstable body is slowly deteriorating. Life seems pretty miserable and pointless. With no faith in himself and even less faith in others, he has very much sunken into a pitiful state. After hitting his lowest point, landing in the streets with nowhere to be, he manages to catch the attention of a stranger. Will Sairys' compassion and cheerful attitude be enough to break through the barriers Caelen manage to erect around himself? *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Boy Love Warning!

Coterie is getting ready to make a comeback

I really apologize for the long hiatus. I had to go through a lot of soul searching and figuring out what I really want to do with my life. I think I’m finally starting to see a clearer picture. It took longer than I thought and once again I want to apologize to all our fans who have stuck around this whole time. We love you guys! <3

There are some changes coming. Vampy has reworked the beginning of Panacea. The premise of the story is mostly the same but I will be remaking the first few chapters to make them better and more coherent. The downside to that is that some of the sex scenes (one I think so far lol) might be removed, since it doesn’t appear in the actual novel Vampy is working on. So, sorry about that, but in general we feel like the story has become tighter (no pun intended) and better.

Anyway, the reworked pages probably won’t be posted until I can update a whole chapter at a time, because changing one page at a time will just make the story confusing for new readers.

I also will be making new pages and continue the story. I’m going away for the week but I’m taking my sketchbook with me to get those stiff drawing muscles loosened up. So look for updates starting next week.

I’m also hoping to start up live-streaming again, but I have to work out the schedule first, since I do have other things I need to work on as well.

Anyway, enough ranting. I look forward to seeing and hearing from all of you again.

I owe everyone an apology

… and an explanation.

No, Coterie is not dead. And yes, Panacea will be back.

Between crappy job, complicated situation at home, and some health issues, I felt like I lost control of my life. In order to regain that control I felt the need to step back from everything and everyone.

Last week, after over 2 years of emotional and mental abuse, I have finally reached a breaking point and put in my resignation at work. Almost immediately my stress level went down which felt amazing.

However, I do have another problem. I don’t have a job lined up yet and any attempts on getting one so far have not worked out. But I’m not letting it get to me yet. I have four months (yes, months. I’m a glutton for punishment and despite my boss being a total ass, I decided I wouldn’t stoop down to his level and gave him a chance to find someone to replace me) to worry about what I’ll do next.

If everything works out the way I plan it, come August I should have more time and energy to get back to working on our comics. We will not only bring “Panacea” back, but also “Shape of Deceit” - our patreon comic - and “Twisted Tales”.

Until then, I beg your forgiveness for the sudden disappearance.

No Panacea this week

"Panacea" will not be updated this weekend. I took a tumble down the stairs yesterday and will probably spend all weekend in bed with my feet up, hoping the swelling goes down so I can go shopping for Thanksgiving dinner.

Sorry for the delay.

On another note, the next page of "Shape of Deceit" has been posted on http://www.patreon.com/coterie so head on over to read it for just $1 a month.

Deon and Lin

I'd like to bring up Shape of Deceit again.
I've been posting updates over on our tumblr. So far, we have Lin's short bio http://coterieyaoi.tumblr.com/post/92292873734/just-a-quick-doodle-to-introduce-lin-adams-from and a postcard that just came in the mail (card that we will be mailing to our future patrons on Patreon <3 ) http://coterieyaoi.tumblr.com/post/92572594809/deon-and-lin-once-again-this-time-in-a-postcard
We hope you like what you're seeing so far. ^^

I decided to post the update here instead of under one of the Panacea pages:

As you may have heard, Coterie is going to be releasing another one of our (many) stories! This newest addition to the family is called “Shape of Deceit”. If you’re reading this I’m sure you’re familiar with Panacea. "Shape of Deceit” shares some similar themes though the story is distinct. Overall the tone of the story is meant to be lighthearted, while still mysterious and dramatic.
You join Lin as he slowly uncovers the truth about himself and the people around him. Drama may play a big part in “Shape of Deceit”, but it is also one of our cutest stories. Some of Lin’s secrets are very fluffy. He tries to keep them under wraps but despite his best efforts, things begin to leak between the cracks. He’s aided by Deon, his impromptu mentor and occasional companion. It’s coming soon (August 2014) and we would be happy to share it with you.

Here's a preview of what they look like: Deon (blond) and Lin (dark hair) http://coterieyaoi.tumblr.com/post/91103125899/as-you-may-have-heard-coterie-is-going-to-be

Hi everyone

I'm sorry for the sporadic updates of "Panacea" or updates of any kind. I've been swamped with meeting at work and by the time I get home I'm barely awake, never mind trying to draw. Fortunately, the season of sales meetings and training is almost over (it's all mostly on my shoulders to organize and let me tell you, I never thought meetings could be this exhausting). I've got 2 more weeks to go and then I can devote more time to drawing again.

Also, in a week or two, we should find out of we're going to AnimeUSA this year. A while back I've applied for a table at the artist alley, and they are supposed to announce the results beginning of May. We might try and have the first volume of "Panacea" - the comic, ready for sale by the time the convention comes around.

Other exciting announcements: "Panacea" volume one of the novel will be possibly published this Fall. My co-author and (the better) writer decided to go with self-publishing option. It's harder to advertise that way so we'll be counting on your support <3

So...

Here's the deal:

The bad news is that my tablet is just... ugh. The nib won't stay in the pen so I keep losing it and I can't find my spare ones. I just want to throw that damn thing out the window.
The good news is that while I was fuming and wallowing in self pity over not being able to draw, I've been crocheting hats. AND I've sold some at a local arts and crafts store. If I can sell a few more I will be able to buy a new tablet ^^

So here's what I've decided. I'm going out of town next week and while I'm gone I'll look for a new tablet. In the meantime, I'll be taking a short hiatus from "Panacea" to make more hats. However, I promise that once I'm back I'll work extra hard and produce more pages to make up for the break in posting.

Please, have patience... and don't abandon us!!! *clings desperately* ^^; <3
