So, I have some bad news. My family’s living situation took a drastic change literally overnight last week, and as such I’ve had to focus on certain things in my personal life. Because of that, the comic has had to take a back seat. Until further notice, I’m back on one update a week (Thursdays), and I will be trying my hardest to get back to two updates as quick as I can. I know most of you are okay with this and your support is always appreciated, but I always feel terrible when I have to do something like this. In a perfect world, you’d be getting multiple updates every week without delays or interruptions. Someday, maybe my world will be perfect.
Here’s the short version for those of you who are okay taking what I say at face value: For the next two week, Bardsworth will update only on Thursdays.
The long story is that we’re going through another of those life upheavals that we do every so often. I just put in my two weeks notice at my day job, but that two weeks is overlapping an influx of freelance work for Katie. So things are going to be a little crazy on the home front, and I’m going to need to step back from the comic to ease up the chaos a bit. The good news, though, is that with my day job out of the way, I can focus a little bit more energy into the comic, and maybe even finish up that pesky second collection (and try another Kickstarter campaign).
So, as always, thanks for you patience.
Sorry for yet another colorless update (and for still having one in the archive not yet colored). This past week was busy with my son’s third birthday and a couple of horrendous days at my job. I should be able to get both strips colored fairly quickly, though. And things should be going much smoother in the weeks to come (more on that as I’m able to speak of it). As always, thanks for your patience.
You know what they say – the best laid plans of mice and men…
I did not pack my Wacom’s USB cord for my trip this weekend, so I was not able to work on either coloring the previous strip or getting the new strip done. As such, Monday’s update will be delayed until Tuesday (hopefully) and will probably be in black and white as well. I’m going to continue moving forward in order to keep the story going and I will color the previous strips when I can.
My hope for normality has not yet come to fruition. Hopefully in the next few weeks things will smooth themselves out. Time will tell.
Just a quick post to let you guys know that Thursday’s strip wasn’t colored because we’re finishing up preparations for the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair this weekend. After this weekend the strips shouldn’t be as delayed anymore. But in any case, if you’re in the Buffalo area (or nearby), feel free to stop by!
Also, I wanted to say that I’ve really been enjoying the comments for this storyline. It was one that I wasn’t sure was going to be well-received, since it’s a little wordy (and possibly boring), but I wanted to give some depth to Crystal, her family, and the elven culture. It’s been a lot of fun to see people’s reactions to Berann, and I’m hoping by the end of the storyline he’ll be a character that people won’t forget.
As always, thanks for reading!
