Huh. That was unexpectedly painless.
Don’t be afraid, my peoples. You knew this might happen someday. It’s time to be brave.
No, seriously it’s not a big deal – but I’m going to pause work on the strip for a bit longer. I’m having a devil of a time juggling my artistic priorities at the moment, and as amazing as it may seem, I actually have some stuff going on that’s more pressing than my beloved dragons! It’s a wonderful problem to have. I’m actually quite proud! But as I have some illustration work to take care of, I’m going to be taking a little time off from the strip.
Meadowhawk is NOT going to get canceled, there are no plans of that sort, so do not worry. I assure you I am only getting started. Thanks for a great first year, dragonwatchers. I’m grateful to everyone who’s been a fan, and I promise, there will be much, much more when I return!
I’m sorry to say, all, but strips will be on hold for the next two, maybe three weeks! I will be recovering from a surgery starting next week. The good news is, this isn’t the kind of surgery where my health is threatened – it’s elective. But I will be out for a while.
Cheers, and see you all on twitter~
So I’m moving. Right.
Well, lately I haven’t drawn ANYTHING since my ‘drawing arm’ has become my ‘screwdriver arm’, my ‘pliers arm’, and my ‘lifting heavy things all afternoon’ arm. By the time I actually have time to draw, my body is in full rebellion.
So dang. This basically means I’m ALREADY falling behind in strips, AGAIN. Which means that even MORE people are going to think my comic strip “isn’t updated that frequently” when, in fact, it is updated ALMOST every week on average. Someday, I swear, I am going to shed myself of the notion that my strip “doesn’t update much”. It -does- update much. I swear to you. It LOOKS like it doesn’t because I was being an IDIOT and BACKDATING my strips because I retroactively published them with dates 3 months prior to when I was actually doing them. And I wrote a journal about this, but nobody reads that journal apparently.
Anyway, that’s the bottom line. You get nothing until I’m done moving. I know. I’m angry about it too. But there’s no way around it.
Just thought I would take a minute to ask – is there any feature you -wish- this site had, as a Distinguished Personne Of Thee Webcomic Fancy, that it is conspicuously missing? Please let me know if there’s any way I can make this thing work better for a busy reading audience and I’ll try to do it. I have an extremely helpful Support Dragon on hand in case of anything more complicated than two years of web design in tech school can teach you to tackle… But I digress. Tell me, here or anywhere – Comment or send me an email or whatever! I’m new to this comic hosting thing! At least in -this- capacity. Like, with people watching.
Oh, and also I wanted to note that I’m jussabout finished with the next strip to go up. Which leaves me still several weeks in the past but I’m getting there, I swear.
Take care, and
lick live well!
