Mid-August Update

Hello! How long as it been since my last blog post?

Four months? Oh geez. I totally didn’t intend for that to happen.

I’ve been quite busy these past few months, mostly with scripting and drawing The Gate at the End of the World. I’m a little past halfway through writing the script, and I just finished drawing the 50th page yesterday.

Fifty pages! I drew 40 of those this year, and my original goal was to draw 50 during 2017. Drawing those last 10 pages to reach my goal will only take me until the end of October. Anything after that will be surpassing my original goal.

This is especially awesome since I thought I’d get sick of drawing comics and quit just a few months in. I’ve had a hard time committing to and finishing stories for the past few years.

So since my last update post about The Gate, some things have changed. I’ve changed my posting schedule to one day per week (Tuesday) because:

  1. I’m working five days a week now
  2. My hands and arms were constantly in pain, and I didn’t want to develop tendinitis or worsen my existing carpal tunnel
  3. My buffer ran out

This means it’ll take twice as long to finish drawing the comic, but I’m feeling much better, mentally and physically. Perhaps when I’m in a better situation I can go back to two pages per week, but I don’t see that happening for a while.

So that’s where I am with what I’m currently working on. What about everyone else? How are your projects going?
