It’s back! That hiatus was way too long, I am sorry. (Especially since this was meant to be a fast paced part of the story. Oops.)
I’d actually wanted to get this up last week, (in part for mercenary reasons as Patreon tallies up comics and charges people and pays me at the end of each month) but between the protests and holiday, not a lot of comicking got done.
It’s been a weird week here in St. Louis. I live far from Ferguson, but about 5 blocks from where the protests in St. Louis city were Monday night. A bunch of my friends were in the protests, some of them were even trapped in a coffee shop when it got tear gassed by the police, other friends have donated their time and talents to repainting boarded up shops in St. Louis and Ferguson. I’ve mostly stayed home and gone about my business, but I’ve been pretty vocal online for whatever that’s worth.
If you’d like to help things in Ferguson, I’d suggest donating to the United Way. http://www.stl.unitedway.org/helpingferguson/
Back to the comic, I’m starting a weekly art meetup event at my place, to Work On Your Damn Art While Other People Are Working On Their Damn Art Near You. My goal is that this will help me stay motivated to work on my damn art (especially the comic), as I find it very invigorating to make art while other creative people are creating nearby.
There’s one more page of this chapter, and my goal is to have it up Monday the 8th. See you soon.
