I haven’t written in the blog much lately and that’s because I’ve been crazy busy with a variety of exciting projects. Unfortunately, I can’t get into specifics just yet, but it’s all good stuff. I got to write an episode for an upcoming animated show on Cartoon Network (not my own, someone else’s) and am currently smack-dab in the middle of illustrating a Middle Grade book by a very well-known author for one of my favorite publishing companies. That and I’ve also been developing my own projects in a variety of mediums which has been very time consuming. So, all I’ve really had time for on this site is to just keep updating the comic and have been ignoring the blog. Anyway, just wanted to say “Hi” to all my readers since the comic’s basically been speaking for me since January. Hope everyone’s doing well. Spring’s here. Summer’s coming. Yippee!
So, I finally—finally!—got around to redesigning this site! I’m using the WordPress theme Inkblot combined with the Webcomic plugin, which was a snap to throw together and I highly recommend it for any aspiring cartoonists out there. The site’s about 99% done. I think the only thing still left to resolve are the permalinks, which I need to talk to my host about since there are some permissions issues preventing me from pretty-ing them up. That should probably be resolved by the end of next week.
So, the site’s got some great new features:
- You can now read random comics using the “Random” button.
- The blog is now actually fully integrated with the site and much more functional.
- You can use your arrow keys on your keyboard, if you’d like, to navigate through the comics.
- The comics will soon be searchable! I’ve transcribed the last 20 or so comics and will continue to do a few a day until they’re done. You can use the “Search the archives” box to find what you’re looking for. Once I get more transcribed, this will be very useful.
- Less ads! Ads are annoying and, frankly, don’t bring me very much money. So now I’ve just got one on the side.
- Finally, the comics are bigger! Yay! Now, much easier to read!
So, that’s it! Hope you like it! And, please, let me know if you see any problems/issues and I’ll try to take care of them.
Merch for X-Mas
With Thanksgiving coming this week, X-Mas is right around the corner. If you’d like anything from my store, please make sure to order before December 19th (U.S.) and December 15th (International) to make sure you get it in time for the Holidays!
Sorry for the lack of updates to the blog. I’ve been ridiculously busy the past several months. One of the things I had to do was redo my illustration/design website, which is now live. Check it out if you’ve never seen it! I’d love to redo this site at some point too, though I can’t imagine when that would be.
