Return from extended hiatus
First update in 9 months, man has it been a long time. I've now been happily married for 4 months, to the day. My job at Microsoft is still fine, too, but quite busy. It's been quite a challenge trying to balance these new priorities while leaving enough time for my comicking and other hobbies. It's a different life, I tell you.
My initial plan, schedule-wise, is to update once a week, on the weekend. I figure it's best to make a conservative estimate for starters. If I have time I'd like to update Wednesdays too, but I'm not sure about the time management necessary to pull that off. I'm also pretty rusty and pages are taking me a little longer than they used to.
Finally, I'd really like to thank you guys for sticking with me and in some cases PM'ing me with words of encouragement and gentle admonishment. It means the world to me, it really does. You guys are most of the reason I'm managing to come back, and you really inspire me. Thank you all. Hope we can see exciting things to come!
The title says it all! This is pretty cool (understatement). Unfortunately it also means more things to be busy with so expect for this to be used as an excuse at multiple points in the future heh heh
coming off of ridiculous hiatus
Yeah, so these past few months have resulted in a lot of change in my life and my drawing schedule has been significantly disrupted (not that I need to tell you that). I'm now living in Mountain View CA and working as a Software Development Engineer in Test for Microsoft, in the XBox Console group. In addition, I have a wonderful girl in my life now and, though this takes up a lot of my time I don't begrudge a second of it (if you're reading this, I love you. Just in case). So, between one thing and another I haven't updated for a long time. But I'm not dead, and I'm not canceling/abandoning the story or anything! It make take me some time to get back into a good schedule, but I'm trying. Currently, I plan on having regular releases on Monday and Tuesday, as well as possibly every other Friday. I'm still settling into my work schedule so this might have to change, but that's my current plan.
Thanks for sticking with me despite my several-month absence. I should have some great things to show you guys soon!
