Haha, hello, just a little update on why I'm so slow recently... I've been kind of low on money XD So I've been working hard on other stuff so I can cover my car insurance and rent and such without messing with my savings. Also I've had some plot things that I wanted to smooth out for a while now but that part's done, at least.

And before anyone offers, no this is not a plea for donations. I will not ask for donations while it is possible for me to cover the amount I need through working hard.

Anyhow, sorry to make you guys wait a week between pages, that totally was not in the plan. Once I reach a certain point in the story (you'll know when we're there) it will go a lot faster.

Here's a Soli sketch to make up for lack of more arts

Comic up tomorrow? We'll see

This is unrelated to the post, but I just wanted to say that I got my copy of the comic in the mail the other day! I love having it in print at last. And I really like the sketch you did in it! :D

Indeed, and it provides an excuse to read from the beginning again. Not that you really need much of an excuse...

Mine showed up as well. It looks fantastic in print.

I'm glad to know you're ok, and totally cool with waiting while you find ways to not starve. Though I won't pretend I'm not busting with curiosity to see where the story goes, but that's your fault for making an awesome story.

And I too got my issue 1 in the mail, just before the autumn rains started in earnets! Yay, my little bugeyed creeture is safe and dry!

And I just started reading, too. IT'S MY FAULT, ISN'T IT.

Far better you should ease off and take car of life — and art, instead of forcing a schedule. You've managed to sustain a terrifically high standard of both art and writing in an webcomic. I think we'd rather wait than have you compromise on either! Considering what's coming out of the Megapublishers... you're sustaining a terrifically high standard of both art and writing of a comic PERIOD.

I know of a certain anime/manga-inspired artist who was dismayed at discovering that having a child would do severe damage to the schedule of a work-at-home dad. BIG surprise there. He's sot of getting out a 2-3 per month - allegedly weekly update. Main difference is of course he's making a LIVING with it... which invited more legit criticism.

Carry on. We're a patient lot, I think!

It's all good. Life come first and there are those of us who understand this. Far too often I see readers act with a sense of entitlement when comes to free comics being updated. You do this for free, in your spare time, because you have a story you love and want to share. With a busy schedule, the fact you give us a weekly update is amazing. The fact you do it for free without running donation drives is awe inspiring.

Oh, and the sketch of Soli is just wonderful. I love the expression on her face. It's so full of "Oh yeah? Well, come and get it. I dare you."

Good luck with the thing. With the stuff. No one is better at working hard than you are.

I love what you've done with Soli's design. She is a lot more weatherbeaten nowadays.

I'm sure there are probably a fair amount of comic creators out there who would disagree with the implication that making comics is not working hard. =P
D Helmeralexds1 on September 20th, 2010 09:22 pm (UTC)
I'm not trying to say it isn't, just that I think there's room for more effort.

I know you're not, I just don't want you to sell yourself short. The Meek is a fantastic piece of work, and I don't think there should be a line drawn between someone wanting to give you money for working on it vs someone wanting to give you money for doing some other kind of work. =)

I realize the decision to not do the donation thing isn't as simple as that, but that's my 2 cents.
