Many of you know that I am not a full-time webcomic artist. I don’t think there are many people claiming that title these days, but that’s another discussion altogether. For the past year and a half I’ve been doing the stay-at-home dad thing during the day while Katie works, and then I have a part-time evening job cleaning offices. It’s been rough; not the cleaning, but the not being at home at nights and missing out on family time. Plus, because I’m keeping an eye on the boy-monster during the day, my project time is limited.

However, as of the end of this Friday, things will be changing. I have recently been coming into some more freelance work, and between that and several other income streams, we decided to have me put in my two-weeks notice. I did that last week, which means that this Friday will be my last night vacuuming up after people who don’t know how to eat at their desks neatly.

So what does that mean for you, my loyal Bardsworth readers? It means a few things. First and foremost, I’ve decided that with the extra time I’ll have to dedicate on projects, I am going to knuckle down finally get the second Bardsworth print edition done. It’s been far too long since the first one came out, and I owe it to you folks. So that’ll be my first major project.

The second, which you’ll know if you follow me over at my writing blog, will be the first Bardsworth novel. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and I’ve decided that it’s the next book I’ll be working towards releasing.

Exciting times are ahead!
