So this was because the week of the 9th was incredibly stressful on me and I was in a bad mental spot where I just wasn't able to produce anything for the comic. I do have a minor buffer, but not enough where I could afford to make the page for the next week fit in today rather than next week.

So, apologies. Life comes first.


What the hell, I'm getting over double the page views for a non-update day than I do for an update day.

I so want to meet you in person.

I'd love that, but I can't travel, so unless you can travel to the Snohomish/Monroe/Everett area in Washington State, it'd be a little difficult to meet.

Hey, no worries. :) Just update when you can. Take it easy, it's coming along great!

Yeah, at this point I'm basically thinking I won't update for the month of November...because I'm an avid writer attempting (and failing) NaNoWriMo this year, while also handling a comic.

Well, that's a very evocative expression of your frustration. I feel that way quite often.

I'm actually more fond of a very strong facepalm, where my fingers actually claw into my face from my frustration.

But one, that's harder to draw, and two, it doesn't look as funny. :P

I do feel that way often enough, though. It's not usually on a literal table, but banging my head against a chair or a couch? (With the occasional desk.) Yep.

You're totally right. Life comes first, ranger. Take it easy and just look after yourself.

The main problem is, if I took life as easy as I probably should, I'd never get the comic done, ever.

I am taking the minor break, but I'm REALLY not happy with it. It sucks not working on my comic. In part because I know I let you all down, but MOSTLY because I really want to make the comic myself, darn it! D:<

As much as I was looking forward to an update, life always comes first and this apology drawing is oddly adorable. XD

There's a reason I like to include a sketch layer in my finished drawings: my sketches tend to have this weird sort of life to them, even a quick doodle like this one. (I don't remember how long exactly it took, somewhere between 5-30 minutes.)

What I lack in artistic talent, I make up for in expression.

Don't sweat it, my friend. Sometimes life comes first, we all get that.

I only wish life wasn't SO consistently coming first. :/

That's ok! I usually do a panel a day and just post a page once a week or later. Life does come first. :)

Hopefully we'll be back soon!

That's good! :)

The idea is December 3rd. We'll see!
