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.

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!

I've spent a month with the iPad Pro and have some thoughts on what types of creators will find this to be a useful tool. This would have been a very different review without the reveal of iPadOS this past week.

Please take my thoughts with many, many, MANY grains of sand. I don't have other devices to compare the Pro to so it's not a very thorough review in my mind. But I try to answer the question, "What type of creator is the iPad Pro for?"
