As some of you may have noticed, I’ve switched to using a text font instead of hand-lettering the dialogue. This is a decision that I’ve waffled on over the years, and usually decided against. I’m a stickler for consistency, and my own hand-lettering always matched my drawings so well. However, I think I’ve finally gotten to a point artistically where the drawings are good enough to constitute a text font. It may take some getting used to, but in the long run I think it’ll work.
The other reason I chose to make the switch is that I’m seriously barreling forward to try and bump my update schedule to two times a week (Mondays and Thursdays). Hand-lettering takes up a decent chunk of production time, especially when it comes to text walls like we’ve seen in the past few weeks, so using a text font makes things chug along a little bit faster. The changeover to twice-a-week won’t happen for a while, as I’d like to build up a buffer first, but I will inform you as we near the launch date of that. I’m excited because it’s been several years of once-a-week updates, and I’ve never been happy with that. But my life has shifted to the point where my schedule allows that extra time that I lost so long ago. Believe me, I’m just as excited as you are!
While I have your attention, I want to say that I know I’ve been lax on getting new wallpapers up for supporters, but I hope to have a Halloween-themed one up soon.
Also, stay tuned for a pretty big announcement coming soon.
