SIT-REP: I had a day off and was looking forward to using it to catch up on comics. I slept through half of it and worked through the other half and it still wasn’t enough for me to get my shit together. I nearly killed myself trying to get two comics done in one week for the newspaper. One almost didn’t make it due to offending two different editors and now I’m worried that any more comics I make for them will require committee approval, which will require me to take up alcoholism. The other was kept web-only and got exactly one Facebook like, from the newspaper itself. This is in contrast to the TWELVE likes given to the STUPID cat meme image I made them for the feed as an afterthought. I don’t know what I’m doing, and I don’t know why I’m doing it. The only thing that makes me happy is the goddamned Chat pages and all I want in life right now is both the time and energy to work on them. I don’t necessarily miss my old job but Christ do I miss the free time I had to do what I wanted. How the idea of a “full time job” got established as some kind of badge of honor I have no idea and I hate it.
Okay, rant over. Everyone back to your lives, try this space again Monday. I’ll try to get an extra up for a Thursday update.
P.S: APE was okay.
Yom Kippur and the Alternative Press Expo falling on the same weekend means the end of my sanity and no grayscale for you today. I’ll add it this weekend. In the meantime, however, I find the stark contrast of black and white rather striking in this case!
There’s more cartoons coming up at J. Weekly, but they’re really just glorified high-holiday greeting cards and I don’t know how much you’ll care for them. Plus, there’s no permanent updating address for them and no real way to link them. We need a new website like YESTERDAY.
Other than that, new page on Thursday unless otherwise noted!
