And we're back!

It's been so long since we've seen our regulars that I thought we'd check in with everyone to see how they're doing. Thank you all for sticking around during the extended filler arc. I enjoyed reading all the comments and theories in between diaper changes and feedings. Oh, and sorry about the Five Deadly Venoms spoilers, but, I mean, come on. It's not like it's difficult to figure out how it's gonna end.

I've been working on a new site design for a good long while now and I've made some decent progress. My focus has been making the site responsive so you can read the comic on a phone without having to pinch too much. I think I've come up with a decent solution. I've got most everything wireframed. Now I just have to style things and create graphics and all that kinda thing and then figure out how to turn that shit into a wordpress/comicpress theme. Soooo no ETA on it, but if you want to see me hack away as I go, you can take a look at this link.

There are some other things I've been kicking around like reopening the online store, perhaps setting up a Patreon campaign, and some other merch type things. I would like 2014 to be a year where I get closer to my goal of doing YP full time. I don't think my comic is the type to go viral so depending on ad revenue as the primary monetization source guarantees that the comic will be no more than a hobby. I've got to branch out and try other things. With that in mind, please take this quick survey to give me some guidance.

Alright. Back to the grind.

New video! This took so damn long to put together. I have no idea how those graphic recorders do this live. Here's an overview of the business of comics in 2020, visual notetaking style!

You can get a preview of the first chapter on the Papercutz website here. This is a little rundown of how I painted to cover.

I'm so excited!!!! School for Extraterrestrial Girls Volume 1: Girl on Fire is finally finished and ready for preorder!!! And if you click on that link, you can download and read the first chapter for free! If there's a limit to exclamation points, I'ma break that shit in this post!!!

Working with Jeremy on this book has been a true delight. There have been moments when I wanted to shout at Tara and moments when I just wanted to hug her as I was drawing pages. I've also learned a whole lot about what it takes to complete a long form project like this. Papercutz has been super supportive throughout the process and we couldn't have asked for a better team. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on this book!!! I'll be sure to throw copies at everyone I see.

So now you can see what's taken me away from YP for so goddamn long. I'm taking a short break to finish up some projects that piled up during production, but I do intend to get back to some YP goodness. I probably won't be able to sustain a regular schedule since Book 2 is on the near horizon, but I plan on updating as I can.

If you would like to see a full preview of Book 1, I've posted the full colored book over at my Patreon in all its glory! I also post a weekly podcast over there with news and commentary on the art scene so if you're looking for things to occupy your brain for a few minutes, check it out!

Alright, that's it for now! I'll yell about all sorts of updates and such as they happen!
