Hey there, everyone! Just making sure I reach out to you all and let you know I’ll be late posting again. Things have been really tough at the office, and with all the other work I do on the side I’ve been pretty strapped for Awkward Love time
Here’s a little rundown of everything on my plate just to give you all a good idea and explain why I’m not always hitting my mark:
First I have a full time job making small games for which I have a rather long commute. Once that part of the day is over I have three hefty freelance clients and a major game title I’ve been working on for the last 2 years (I’ll be posting details here when we start our Kickstarter campaign! 😀 ) And FINALLY, I also teach at a local university here in Jersey. Teaching and Awkward Love are the two things that really brighten my life, but unfortunately only one of them helps put food on the table. Until Awkward Love starts earning a little money I will be forced to put my deadlines on the back burner when deadlines and student issues get heavy. I never intended to use this comic as a revenue source but as many artists know, to make a real living with art one must work very very hard and the fun stuff often ends up on the shelf.
I am DETERMINED to make this strip the long lasting reliable source of laughs and smiles I have been trying to make it, but until I can find that right balance between work and passion, I will unfortunately miss the occasional Friday
You folks, my readers, are very important to me. Every time I get a comment on a strip, or a suggestion or joke on Reddit, it really makes my day. Eventually I would love to hear from my readers a LOT more. I want to get to know all of you, I’d love to know if my comics brighten your days like they do mine! Talking with the people who read these strips really fills me up with fuel for the next comic!
So thank you all for the patience and the good vibes. I hope to hear from some of you, get your thoughts on the direction of Awkward Love and hear suggestions for making space for comic art time in my life. You’re all the life-blood of this endeavor!
