We will return Monday, September 9th!
We’re incredibly sorry about the lack of updates and lateness. It seems since Bill handed in his notice at his job, his workload has doubled. He isn’t the only one who happened to be leaving his bank job, quite a few other people abandoned ship right before he did. Instead of coasting through the last 2 weeks of his job, he’s been doing the workload of at least 2 tellers. And that’s on top of his increasing duties trying to start making plans for his new job as manager of Wildpig Comics, and trying to do the strip.
He’s exhausted. He’s been asleep for most of the day, and when I tried to rouse him awake for dinner and to start drawing he mumbled something and went back to sleep. I tried that twice. I’m pretty sure he’ll be sleeping through the night until tomorrow. He’s definitely exhausted.
I think we’ve decided for Bill’s sanity, and mine (try living with a constantly overworked person who’s quit smoking) the strip is going to go on a small hiatus for a week or so. Bill is going to finish out the rest of his remaining days at the bank, rest, and hopefully work on a couple strips to build a tiny buffer.
That means we’ll return Monday September 9th.
You have no idea how much it kills us to do this. We both feel awful, like we’re letting you all down, but it seems tired Bill is tired. It’s been an insane year, but we’re really hoping this new phase in our lives will help balance everything, which will make the strip better.
