REALLY IMPORTANT NEWS
So! I just got a full-time job! I’ll finally have enough income for… nothing! Because my student loans are so high that i’ll have maybe $8 after all is said and done!
Ok, it’s not that bleak. BUT this new job DOES require me to make a huge move, and I’ll have to work an extra 10-15 hours to make ends meet. Which means some changes are going to happen, much as we don’t want them to.
What all this means for the next 3-4 Weeks
I’m going to have to pack all my stuff and cart it across state to the new apartment i have to find really quickly. I will be ridiculously busy during this time, so I need to know what y’all want to do in the meantime:
A) Go on full hiatus after next week (the 19th-23rd’s comics are done and queued). This means no more updates til I’m settled and mostly functional.
B) Semi-hiatus, where I take the next week’s 3 comics and re-queue them for 1 page a week. You’ll still get some content, and it’ll hopefully last until I’m fully settled and have time to draw more pages. I’ll also probably put a call out for guest artists.
Please respond by replying to this post or going to my ask/submit boxes! this is really informal, but I wanna know what y’all would be most comfortable with. Now then….
What all this means AFTER I get settled
This comic isn’t going anywhere. I love it too much, and it has brought so much stability, joy, and hilarity to my life over the last year of doing it. I love all of you who read it and interact with it and it’s really joyous to me to see y’all wanting more.
But the reality of it is, despite being a full-time job with benefits, I will still need to work 50-55 hours total to live the best I can. Currently, I’m working 20-24 hours a week, so this is going to double what I’m doing. This means I won’t have as much time or energy to draw, though I’m gonna do my best.
But the comic will probably have to drop to 2 pages a week. Not just 2 updates a week, because those at least were 4 pages a week total. 2 pages per week, Tuesday and Thursday.
I will try to do as much as possible, and honestly I’d much rather be doing comics, but unless I suddenly get $560 going on my Patreon or people start commissioning me for that much a month, I simply cannot do my current output rate.
It really pains me to do this, but I have to in order to live.
Nothing is set in stone yet except that the next month is going to be a frenzy for me, and so there will be a considerable slowdown on pages. But this comic will still continue regardless of circumstances.
I hope you’ll stick through the whirlwind coming and see what else I’ve got planned for this story!
Love you guys
