What "Break?"
Posted October 9, 2018 at 11:12 am

It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you,

Without a dope beat to step to.


It's been a long ass time since I've posted a proper YP comic. And we're still in the soft-relaunch period which means I'm still trying to figure out things like colors and format and all that. But for all tents and porpoises we're back!


It's been years! Where mah free comics??! 

Right, yes. Well.

I decided that in order for me to live my best life, I needed to transition to fulltime freelance work. This meant that most of what I did art wise had to have a paycheck at the end of it.

Unfortunately, YP never reached the traffic threshhold where ad revenue would make up a significant portion of my income. Writing and drawing took up so much time, time that I could have spent on paying gigs. Updating YP just wasn't practical.

It's been a few years now and I have things more under control. My schedule is sort of normalizing between work and taking care of Hazel. So I feel like it's about time to get back to it.

I'm gonna be spending this month figuring out format and such. I'm only going to be updating once a week because, let's face it, updating three times a week did me no favors. Also, the relaxed schedule will still give me plenty of time for pay work. I'm digging the scrolling format which read very well on mobile which I feel is where most people are reading comics these days. And if you're on desktop, the bigger panels are way in your face so you can see all of my art flaws up close and personal. Mostly, I gotta figure out if I like the color scheme or not. I think, at least for a while, I'll be using a limited color palette because it's special and arty and is challenging.

So. Yeah. Back. Sorta. Spending time working shit out. Thank you for stopping by! I'll be much more obnoxious about getting the word out come November hopefully!

Magma Studio is a fun little web app. If you've got a browser, you've got a drawing app! Mostly. If you're using MacOS Safari, you get no tablet support. If you're using iOS Safari, you do get tablet support but no paste function. Both make me chuckle a bit. But overall, it's fun to play with. Sure, it could use some more functions in there, but I think it's a solid base app to build on. And you have draw with 30 friends at the same time! Big time art jam! Reminds me of the old oekaki days in the 90s.

So check it out. This is not sponsored, but I had fun with it and I think you will, too!
