So I kinda overshot my target return date by a bit. Things have been crazy in the real world so to speak. But well, comics are back. With luck I should finally wrap up Angela and her friend’s very long conversation. Here’s hoping at least. Thank you for sticking around.
Hey guys – so as you can see from the image above, the comic is taking a short break (the month of June, more accurately). The comic will be returning on July 3rd, 2015.
There are many reasons for this, but it boils down to the fact that there are a lot of changes at my day job. Got a new boss, new responsibilities and a new charter in the span of a few weeks, along with some vacation time I had to burn off. All of this is conspiring to take away any and all available time to work on the comic. I really don’t want to half-ass the comic, so it’s better for me to take a step back, recharge batteries (literal and creative) and start fresh in June.
Thanks for your understanding, and hope y’all still around when I am able to come back.
For the holiday weekend I thought about just sending the girls to the beach. Some are more comfortable than others.
At any rate, I have some business/holiday travel coming up — I’ll work on comics this week and let you know how everything will shake out schedule wise for the next couple of weeks.
Let’s get this out of the way upfront: I haven’t been able to update the comic as often as I would like (or you would like, for that matter).
There’s a lot of reasons to be offered (some bordering on excuses, to be honest) – everything from being away for a couple of weeks, stuff piling up at the day job – and making sure everything gets done there, since there is a VERY strong round of layoffs at said day job – and just stuff to do around the house. On top of that, I’ve had a severe case of writer’s block (cliché, I know). It’s been mostly a frustration that I know I don’t have the skill to draw what I want to write, so I don’t dare write it. It’s kinda screwed up.
ANYWAYS, sob story over. Not making excuses for the erratic schedule – just stating the situation as is. The comic is not in danger of being abandoned, that’s not in the books, but being completely transparent I don’t know if the Monday-Wednesday-Friday is a goal I can hit in the immediate term. Of course that’s what I want, but whether I can get there… that’s the open question. I will shoot for that and keep you guys more updated on what’s going on and avoid pulling disappearing acts. That’s the least I can do.
As always, feel free to drop me a line if there’s anything in your head about all this.
Thanks for sticking with Atomic Laundromat!
So, I don’t usually do fan arts. Not because I don’t want to (I have a long list of stuff I would totally adapt to my “style” so as it is) but rather because having a day job, I have to choose carefully how I invest my drawing time. A strip three times a week has a nasty habit of eating at that drawing time. At any rate, I found myself with some spare time and the will to do things other than Atomic Laundromat characters and chose of Dave Barrack’s characters as my
This is Sydney, from David’s comic Grrl Power. Dave’s comic is all about superpowered females going about their superpowered business, so of course it might be up your alley — although judging by my stats today, a lot of you actually came from over there. Whatever the case may be, make sure you check out his extensive archive and his current saga. Just promise you will come back.
