Hey there, my lovely readers! Just wanted to drop you all an update on things here and explain a few things.
I know I’ve been publishing less than weekly lately and I’m not too happy about that. I’ve also missed May’s Patreon publishing by a day now (officially) and don’t worry, I’ll have two desktops and two pinups out as soon as possible.
So, as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, there’s a huuuuuge project I’m on that’s been dominating my spare time. It’s a big game, biggest I’ve had the chance to work on in a good long while, and I’ve been doing my very best to make sure I keep up my end of the project (UI/UX and graphic design). There is some big stuff happening with this project soon, and once that’s out of the way I can maybe cool my jets on that enough to get back to a weekly publishing schedule. Another little hiccup here is that the Patreon hasn’t gotten to the point yet where I can rely on it to replace a couple of my major freelance efforts. I know that’s not an excuse, but hey, these strips take time and time is money. FOR ALL MY CURRENT PATRONS, let it be known that you’re ALL amazing and the support you’ve shown me so far is more appreciated than you could possibly know. I’ve been leaving the earnings in escrow for the time being as I’m hoping to use Patreon to fund a few new art tools (laptop and accessories) that I can set aside just for comic work. This poor little laptop of mine does so so much work, lol.
FOR ALL MY CURRENT READERS, patron or not, you’re all awesome. When I started this I never thought I’d have anything I might call and audience, so if you can’t afford to support Awkward Love or even if you just don’t want to, don’t worry, Alyssa and I still got love for you all!
Finally, to my students, I know a couple of you are on my patron list even though I said you shouldn’t be. You are my rocks, you guys. To know that students of mine have decided to help support Awkward Love, well words can’t begin to express my thanks. Hell, you’ve all already paid for my class, and yet here you are still supporting me. It’s humbling and I can’t tell you how good it feels to see your names on my little Patron list. Please keep in touch, I want to know how I can help you when you need it!
Many thanks for the patience and good will!
