Aaaaand we’re back. That was a nice break, hope everyone enjoyed their holidays.
I’ve got some good news and bad news.
The good news is really only good for me.
See, I made almost the whole first chapter of Deck of Fools when I was unemployed and out of school. I then went back to school last year, and in October I landed a full time job as a Web Designer Developer. This is great, it means I have food to eat, and a nice warm home. It also means I don’t have a whole lot of free time.
It used to take me, on average, three solid days to make a page. I realize that’s a little ridiculous; I’m not very fast. Now, with me working, if I take every bit of time I can spare to put into comic making, it takes me almost two weeks for the same page.
So, the bad news. I’m cutting the update schedule. Down to once a month.
I’m sorry, I know for anyone reading this that it’s a disappointment. But, this is my hobby. I don’t want to turn something I’ve truly enjoyed as a stress relief into a second job, which it has unfortunately started to feel like.
So this is how I’ll play it. Second Thursday of every month will be update day. We’ll see how it goes. If I manage to build up enough buffer I’ll think about adding a second update per month.
