Saturday, September 28th, I’ll be posting a surprise sketch of an upcoming character. Enjoy!
Our 3rd Anniversary is celebrated this week. Instead of a strip, we will have a pin-up of a character not getting much screen time at the moment; one hot guy I know you all look forward to seeing;)
In other news, I have been approached by Top 100 Graphic Novels.com and asked if it would be okay to display a strip or two. We made it to THAT list?? REALLY?? *eyes widen* Wow… So that’s all I know and I’ll be keeping you all posted. Thanks for the support and continued readership. And please comment!
There is also a new poll up. Please vote and let me know! Yes, I write. I’ve been a writer longer than I have been an artist, believe it or not! It is my greatest love and I’d love to share it with you all.
Arno and Beedoo!> Forgive me for not posting this up earlier, and for not providing a link to your webcomic earlier.
A little backstory: Jade Griffin is a character created to display my persona online in the Disney’s “Gargoyles” community which has bled over into nearly every aspect of my net activity. I encountered many very good people in the fandom whom I keep in contact with today. I have met in person many of them by attending the “Gathering of the Gargoyles” as often as I could. Two such good people are Beedoo! and Arno. Beedoo! hails from Arizona and Arno from Holland. To highlight their adventures, they started a webcomic starring their online personas: both of which are dragons. They even did a post about Dovahkiin.Please visit them and enjoy them as I have:)
I have permanently added Arno and Beedoo!: Sitting in a Tree to my site in the links bar and, again, I don’t know why I didn’t do this over two years ago. Better late than never, and at least before your wedding, guys!
Hey, all! If you don’t have Facebook or Twitter, you might be missing my update postings — where I mention what’s been updated on the site. That’s why I also post this blog:)
1.) minor updates to bio pages of Daedalus, Triumvirate, The Red Queen, and the BBW under Characters/Opposition.
2.) added Icarus bio page under Characters/Opposition.
3.) new voting incentive for Topwebcomics.com : Flamin’ Mad Jack!
It is with regret that I must announce dropping Shards down to one strip a week for the foreseeable future. I have debated this much over the last four months and it boils down to an inability to keep up. I’ve tried to reach the same peak I had for two straight years with no delayed or cancelled strip posts but, in the end, it isn’t presently manageable. In order to enjoy time with my husband and two young children and still attempt to get a shred of time to wind down for myself, I have to make a cut somewhere. However much I wished I could get paid to better my skills in art and produce at least three strips a week, it was a dream I was fairly sure I could not accomplish at this point in my life. I don’t know whether the Shards readership simply isn’t big enough or my art skills cannot compare with others who have succeeded, or both…
I love Shards. I have always loved the concept, the characters, and what we have in store for you all. I am dropping to one strip a week with angst in my heart because I want to show you all so much of this fantastic story TB and I have devised, as well as the characters not yet revealed. It won’t go away.
I will continue to do the comic and to put out one strip a week but I wanted to ask which day you’d prefer to see this strip, and if you’d prefer the sketches I’ve been including prior or would you rather just have the full strip when it’s done? Please respond and thank you for your patience. I know it must be a bit frustrating to expect a strip and only get a sketch on the previously scheduled days.
