I'm embarrassed to admit that both this week's update and next week's update will be up late. (This week's is already late, but hey.) This is largely due to my being sick for literally half of September. It was out of my control and made it next to impossible to focus on any kind of serious work. The other reason is actually a cool thing I forgot to announce previously.
I'm at table B109 all day Saturday & Sunday! That's September 30th & October 1st. Come by and say hello if you're in the area! Anyway, I won't be able to finish page 46 before I leave for Seattle on Friday, so it'll be up some time later that week after I get back.
So yeah, I'm giving myself an extra week before this comic comes back from hiatus with new updates, which means the next page will be up September 4th. I didn't get enough of my work done by the 28th, which obviously makes it difficult to post new content, but I'd be able to soldier on if not for the fact that this is going to be an insanely busy week for me!
I have family visiting, a new roommate moving to town, and a roommate moving out (which I've promised to help with), so the idea that I could finish this page and also have the next one ready on time is laughable. So I'm just calling it now.
Sorry to the people who were excited to see the notice about the new updates, but this was the least-bad option as of today. I swear I'm back on the horse! It's just that inertia is a hell of a thing.
That's right! You can now buy merch from me through Hiveworks' official storefront. Right off the bat, I'm offering prints, including individual comic page prints, and the Girlbot ebook, but there's more coming very soon!
Also, I unfortunately won't be able to update this week. On the very same day, I both got sick and was informed of a death in the family, which ruined my ability to get much work done last week. So the next update will be December 12th!
I'm really sorry for what's amounted to an unannounced hiatus for this comic this month. A combination of finishing other work, some personal life drama, and preparing for a convention kept me from keeping up with my schedule. Here are two things I can promise you:
That's all for now. Sorry again. Keep an eye on my Twitter for the latest!
Yes, there's a free wallpaper up on my Patreon for everyone to download! As you can see, it's a colored version of the latest update, which I happen to think would also make a nice print, if that interests anyone...
This last page has been such a trial that it's closer to being next week's page than this week's. Consequently, I've decided to just post it on Monday next week instead of creating too much of a crunch for myself. I will, however, be posting it as soon as it's finished for backers of my Patreon. I expect it to be some time today/tonight.
Sorry about the extra wait!
Yes, I promised I'd be back from break on June 6th, but this latest page has taken a lot of work for obvious reasons. I'll get it posted this week as soon as it's done. We're almost out of the woods!
I've recently come to the decision that I need to take a short break from this comic to take care of some other tasks that have been stacking up while I spent all my time drawing foliage. It'll just be for three weeks! So check back on Monday, June 6th, for page 23.
Thanks for sticking with me.
