I’m pretty busy this month and you’ll be seeing more delayed strips. Sorry. This post is to let you know in advance that, for October, I may only be able to manage one strip a week but if I manage to do two as normal, hurray! Everything will resume as usual in November. As usual, I’ll try to post something: content, sketch, etc. Is there anything you’d like to see in particular? I bet yer getting tired of apology pictures and pony sketches LOL. Oh, and I’ll have an upcoming poster or at least a sketch up for Halloween. Something I’ve wanted to do for over a decade… :)
On Tuesday 9/18/12, the second page of “Rumpled Snow” comes out. If it is too confusing having it post on the main page and interrupting the flow of the normal comic, I will start a new page just for the “Rumpled Snow” story arc. What do you think?
The Donation Rally is going good enough that a second page is due! Thanks so much for contributing! As soon as the new pin-back buttons come in — our first merchandise — I may put up a donation incentive as well. In the meantime, time to start on the next strip! And feel free to comment on it so I know if you like how it’s going!
Also, as extra content, I’ll be putting up the button designs soon. Let me know if there’s a character we missed that you’d like to see!
Well, I am still working on the strip because the deadline for the SnafuCon art contest was tonight and I couldn’t pass up submitting something. I was going to do an awesome pic of Icarus because the theme is sci-fi/space but I went for something I sketched at last year’s con instead. I don’t know if I can show what the pic is until after the con but just letting you know that is the reason I can’t get a strip out by tonight. That and it is because of the con prep which I will be squeezing in all month — extra art, printing all the pages of Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 because I’m so behind in that!, designing buttons for this year YAY!! If this happens again (a delayed strip), I will be putting up a sketch if nothing else, and not of the strip to come! Something new! I plan on finishing my Icarus sketch and put up the Red sketches I have in the works. Did Dorothy as a My Little Pony over the weekend, as a sketch… Yeah. I got plenty of sketches to show ya!
Yes, in that blurb there I mentioned I’ll be designing some buttons. Probably the 1-inch size. I’m starting the merchandise small and see how stuff sells. Depending on the response at the con, and here if you guys want merchandise, I can add a store to the site.
I have the next 3 days off and plan on making a GOOD archive, updating some other things around here, getting AHEAD of the strips again, and of course finishing the inks and shades for the Donation Rally strip “Rumpled Snow 1″ :) Here’s to gettin’ busy, and ahead! Because in October… Yeah. That’s my overdrive month. So there’s the update!
Apologies again for being slow for the new content. I have some kind of virus and my kids do as well, I’ve been at work for 6 days straight, I’m fighting off some bad family news, etc. Life kinda making the comic difficult to finish in general. I hope to have it done by Friday.
In other news; look! A new poll! *magically appears in upper right-hand corner*
