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.

Comments:

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:<

Aww. :(

I KNOW, RITE?!?

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!

15th Nov 2016, 3:38 AM edit delete reply

That's good! :)

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