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!

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?"
