Okay… It is 2am and I just finished the haunted house work. Sorry about no strip for Thursday! Monday starts us up as usual!
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!
