Sorry there is no second page this week. I hurt my back earlier in the week and not only did that mean I wasn’t able to leave the house, it also meant that I couldn’t work while I was at home either. Next week’s updates are still on schedule because my back is feeling better.
This week marks the beginning of Chapter 14: Family Matters. I’ve been talking about if for a few weeks, but I’m really looking forward to this chapter. I know it’s sorta late, but unfortunately, things have been so chaotic at home I haven’t had much of a chance to sit down and work. I pretty much got these pages done just before I posted them. Hopefully no big annoyances strike again and the updates can stay a lot more consistent. I’ve always been good about updating the site before, so this is unusual for me.
There’s less than two weeks until Christmas and you’re still scrambling to come up with a gift, why not invest in Sorcerer’s Apprentice volumes 1 and 2? A lot of people forget that the series is all ages, so if you’re trying to nudge a youngin’ into reading comics, Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a good place to start. Also, the Bwillett Comics clearance sale is going on until the 31st. After that day all that stuff will no longer be available for sale. So if you’re thinking you can grab some of that stuff at a con, you’re out of luck. Especially since I’m retiring so many designs.
I apologize for the lack of pages this week. Up until last week I had fully planned to have everything ready. But first I had some bad news that sapped all my will to art, and when I finally recovered I managed to injure my back. I’m better now and am trying to work on the pages, but I can’t guarantee they will be finished in time. Either way, except at least a Christmassy image on Friday.
Hey folks, sorry for no pages last week. That was largely because last week was a major holiday. The library was closed on Friday and with my disease flaring up the previous weekend (yay painful autoimmune diseases…) I wasn’t able to work. Because of those things I figured I’d just skip the updates. This week the pages will be up on time. In fact, the first page is going to be a day early. This is because I’m doing something special this week: I’ll be contributing to Colorado-based blog and podcast, Beyond the Trope. I’m being interviewed and asked to discuss some common tropes and how I use them in my work. I hope y’all will check it out, I’m very excited to be a part of it.
I apologize about last week’s updates being so screwy. Last Tuesday was so cold I couldn’t make it to the library so I had to use a local restaurant instead, but their wifi was so bad that each time I tried to upload the page the system froze. Then I couldn’t post any news about it later in the week because then ComicEasel had some problems. But since the last update everything is fixed. This is also why it’s good to check my Facebook and Twitter because I post whenever I have issues or why updates will be late.
This week’s updates will be on time and I finished drawing chapter 13. It’ll be a couple more weeks before those pages will show up and in the meantime I’ll start 14. I really look forward to 14 and 15 because it’s a short story arc that will cover Cooper’s background a bit more. In the meantime, please continue to support the series by voting and buying the books.
