I drew this strip on paper! It was more fun that I remembered it being. I do believe real pencils and inks will become the norm for a while. It’s all Danielle Corsetto’s fault. Her and stupid REAL art at the Phoenix Comicon shamed me. Anyway, “a while” won’t be terribly long anyway, as I now have to lay a plan out for you folks that you aren’t gonna like.
You may have noticed that I removed all the links for the commissions. I had too make sure I wouldn’t get anymore, because even now, I’ve probably bitten off more than I can chew. As such, my plan is thus: Lit Brick will NOT be updating every day a week. It may possibly update only one or two days a week. Part of that delay is because other comic work (HELLO, MARY ELIZABETH) is taking priority, as I’ve always said it would since January, but another part is that I simply have OTHER paying artwork with harsher deadlines.
In any event, I’m going to continue working through the commissions through the summer as time allows, and when they’re all wrapped up, I’m gonna take a break from Lit Brick for a bit. I’m not sure how long “a bit” is going to be, but my current plan is to return a few months later with a big chunk of comics, maybe a little book’s worth. That could change, I suppose, but for now, I’ll take the break and – in the time off – knock out my planned Gilgamesh adaption.
That’s probably how things will operate from there on out. I’ll just post chunks of comics every few months. Not the greatest update schedule, but there it is. Lit Brick won’t die, it’ll just appear is a slightly different form, and much more slowly. Thus, to repeat: I finish the commissions over the next couple months, I leave for a while, I come back with a book, and I leave again. Lather rinse repeat.
As always, I thank you for your continued support and understanding. Now, to make you feel better, here’s a video of Johnny Cash reading the poem today’s comic is based on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJNZwuamwj0
