A: Alexander Lymos gets stuff done.
B: I’m pretty proud of that background in Panel 1.
See you fine folks next week!
Hey gang. It’s been a minute.
Clockworks will return. Ideally this month. The house I bought in September is still not finished yet. I had a group of contractors disappear on me (fortunately I didn’t pay them for the work they didn’t do), and we keep finding new things to completely overhaul, and everything has to wait on the next guy’s availability and so on. So my living room is still also my bedroom, and my art studio is still my makeshift kitchen and closet. My fridge and stove are still out in the garage, etc and so on. It’s far from ideal. Also I’m still a crazy person, even though I’m on meds, and having an unstable/incomplete living situation and mental illness is a fun combination that I suggest no one should try. So that’s slowed things down even more.
But regardless, the comic will return. I miss doing it, and I want to keep telling this story. Will let you know more when there’s more to know.
Hey gang, sorry for the lack of comics lately.
The good news: I’m buying a house! It’s small and awesome. The less good news: in the mean time I’ve living at my friend’s place, most of my stuff is still in storage, and while I’ve got the computer I don’t have a proper desk set up. There have been some health hiccups along the way as well. It’s been a thing.
On the plus side, one of my roommates has a cat, and I’ve discovered that Flonase totally works on my cat allergies. We are bros now. I’ve always been a dog person (and super allergic to cats), but this cat is pretty awesome.
I tried making a comic this week, but I’m super rusty, and really need to work back up my art skills before making a full comic page. I’d like to resume Clockworks in August, but it might not be until September. I close on the house in a couple of weeks, and as you can imagine the early part of moving in to a house is pretty time consuming.
The eventual upside of this is I plan on living in my house that I own basically forever, which should do good things for my stability and the health of the comic.
Comics will resume next week. Since posting the last update, I’ve moved out of my apartment (living in my friend’s place for the short term, possibly buying a super cheap foreclosed house soon!) and I’m going back to my old home town tomorrow to go to a funeral. As you can imagine, comics have taken a bit of a back seat. But they’ll be back soon. I miss drawing these guys and telling this story.
Hey gang, just a head’s up that May’s 3 week long unplanned hiatus is ending in the very near future. I had a really rough month, possibly caused by meds interacting with each other (Fun fact: you’re not supposed to take antidepressants and antihistamines at the same time! Oops. If you have depression and allergies you should probably just move to the desert.) Page 0194 is written and penciled, I just need to ink it and scan it in and color it. Progress and updates and a new page up as soon as possible.
I’m working my way backwards through the archives, updating to the new image size. So far, I’ve updated all of the comics in Chapters 13 and 14.

More in the near future, and page 0184 goes up later this week!
