Important Hiatus News30 August 2013
Morning all! How’s it going? Good, glad to hear it!
First up, there’s actually a comic this week! Wow-ee! Who’da thunk it! Click here to go read it.
Enjoy it. It’s the last one for a while.
I’m taking another well-needed break from Orful Comics
I’m sure it hasn’t gone un-noticed. Updates have been… sporadic at best lately. There’s a couple of reasons for this.
First, the simple one.
I am mega behind on where I want to be on Scene City 4 right now. I really want it finished, printed and ready to go into your filthy little hands in time for Thought Bubble in November. Trying to get a comic up every week means at least two evenings each week I’m not working on Scene City. This is time I absolutely need to get the book finished on time.
Now the less simple answer.
I’ve not been enjoying Orful Comics so much lately.
Not at all.
There have been a few times over the past couple of months where I’ve sat down to plan the next comics and I’ve just stared at my notebook for ten minutes, sighed, then put it away and done something else. It simply hasn’t been giving me the same joy it used to. I’ve been growing tired of sitting down and sifting through moments in my life looking for something to draw a comic about. I’m sick of feeling like I sometimes only leave the house to experience a “comics moment”. I’m bored of not really knowing where any of this is going. I’m just all a bit “blah” about it right now.
So I’m taking a break.
Hopefully, when I have fewer projects on the go and I’ve been away from it for a while, I’ll feel like doing it again but right now, no. The only reason today’s comic was made was so I’d have enough comics to print volume 4 but after this, there’s not going to be any for the forsee-able future.
This isn’t a permanent goodbye by any means and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who stop by every week to read the comics, encourage me and let me put you in them. You are all great. I also would like to apologise for neglecting you so much this year. It has been a busy one for me and you’ve all been great about it!
So it’s goodbye from me for now and I shall hopefully see you all back here again towards the end of this year
All the best
