In all of the excitement of strep throat and bringing the comic back, I completely forgot to post here that I’m going to be at Kawa Kon today! 3 PM, come hear me talk about Clockworks! It will be super exciting.
I’m making an experimental change to the update schedule, now that we’ve finished Chapter 12. I won’t be doing weekly page updates for Chapter 13. Instead, the comic is going on hiatus until January (final date tba), and when it returns I’ll upload the entirety of Chapter 13 in a burst of daily updates. Chapter 13 is shorter, should be only about 8 pages or so, so with a chapter cover image, just about two weeks worth of new comics.
If I like the way this update schedule works out, I’ll do it again on Chapter 14. If I don’t like it for whatever reason, we’ll return to the normal weekly updates in Chapter 14.
While the comic is on break, things won’t be entirely quiet here. Syhd has drawn another (entirely canon) Sir Wilhom Bloodbourne comic, this one two pages, that I’ll post here over the next two weeks. Also expect blog posts and art previews and such.
You may recall that last year I switched my Amazon Wish List entirely to art supplies for the comic. I was blown away by the response, and now I’m swimming in pens and markers, Scrooge McDuck style. I’m on the edge of filling up all of my sketchbooks with Clockworks art though, so if you’d like to support the comic and literally help make Chapter 13 happen, please consider throwing a sketch book my way. Clockworks has no ads, so if you’d like to help the comic out, a sketch book is really the ideal way. Or, if you really like me, Walmart.com has email delivery Dominos Pizza gift cards, so you can make sure I don’t starve to death before I draw Chapter 13.
Anyone who supplies art supplies or pizza will receive my eternal gratitude and also a custom made thank you doodle.
I think that’s about everything. See you next week for Sir Wilhom Bloodbourne’s Adventures In Highschool Romance.
Hey, do you art the arts? Want to try your hand at Eva, Thorton, Ophelia, Oliver, Toby and/or the various members of the rogues gallery?
I’d love to have more Clockworks fan art up on the site, and will happily link back to your comic or art blog or whatever. You can comment here (or message me on FB, Twitter, wherever) with a link to the artwork and I’ll post it to the comic and probably tumblr and elsewhere. I’ll also think you’re super cool, and give you virtual high fives.
(Slightly off topic, but I think you’ll all dig it.)
Tomorrow, Wednesday October 30th is the 75th anniversary of one of my favorite things ever, the Orson Welles and the Mercury Theater on the Air’s broadcast of HG Wells’s War of the Worlds. In honor of this classic bit of Halloween spookery, for last weekend’s Halloween season Silent Disco Party, I created a special downtempo mix of the original broadcast (edited down a bit), and various downtempo, ambient, soundtrack, and instrumental industrial songs.
Go take a listen! I’m pretty happy with how it came out. It’s pretty great Halloween background music too.
I missed last week’s update, due to the time honored tradition of mental health problems and financial issues. Yay. I will absolutely have a new page up this week, next week may be spotty due to Halloween, but I’d like to stick to the whole weekly updates with no missed weeks plan.
Anyway, new comic up in a few days.
