@LazyReader: Just in case this is a serious not-in-fiction comment, if you read the really long post a few pages back you'll find that the third book is over and that there's going to be a fourth, after I take a brain vacation first. :)
.......Is it.......is it over?

Uhm. Not many pages to go in book 3, and they are all done. In light of this development I am queuing them now for you!
AAAAAA I'm caught up just when things are getting juicy! ;0;

I hope you're able to get everything figured out in your life! Your art is fabulous and you'll always have people that absolutely adore it (like me :P ). I really hope 2018 has been/will be a better year for you than 2017, and I'm sorry you had to go through such difficulties. I'm sure I speak on behalf of all your fans when I say that we're rooting for you! *kazoo fanfare*

oKAY I've been ghost reading from the future but I wanted to pop in and say WHAT THE HEKC I was not expecting that, A+++ plot twist 100%

When he pulled off the mask, my mouth popped open and I slapped a hand to my chest--the ultimate surprise reaction :O

Also I love love love this comic, it's so different and refreshing and when I read it I can't stop smiling because of how beautiful it is. Well...I stop smiling when bad stuff is happening. Which is often. OKAY I SMILE ABOUT IT SOMETIMES

IS that a ground cherry?
I suspect this is what might be called a "Goblin Fruit"

This may have been some time ago, but I still want to say thank you for sharing some points about your life and explanations for any hiatuses. I look forward to your new direction and I hope it can support you and your artistic talents and dreams.

I am SO EXCITED to find out where this is going. I LOVE old 'Court of the Fey' type tales. Another one I really enjoyed was "The Child Thief" by Brom. Does anyone have recommendations to tide us over until Feral Gentry returns?

Cesario, I am in love with the world you have created. Take all the time you need, recharge, then come back to us.

Hi everyone! This is kind of a long post, and an important one, please read it if you can. (slightly edited from the version posted on Patreon a week ago)

I'm sorry I had an unannounced vacation from updating over the entire December. I haven't usually done this (kept Christmas breaks or had long unannounced breaks) and I've tried to keep on communicating about changes, but I failed this time.

I visited friends in Turku over New Year and got pretty inspired by Petra's new comic pages for mainly two reasons; 1. They were drawn in pencil and shaded with ink and these days I really love ink and traditional workflows 2. She had a buffer and I remembered all the great things you can do with a buffer.
Firstly, this has led me to the conclusion that I might really want to try working on Feral Gentry with ink. To be honest, even if I ended up making more animations it would not hinder my process much. I already need to do a lot of cut-out things and paintovers. The only thing it kind of makes harder is making strong colour hotspots and painted backgrounds, but that's never been the biggest thing in the comic and I can continue doing subtle colour spots.

Secondly, I need a buffer. Working without one is unenjoyable and awful. To do this, I need to actually really take time off, because buffers take time.

Thirdly: I need to reconstruct my Patreon to better reflect the things I am able to do and the things patrons will get for being the amazing supporters they are and have been. I have had a gnawing feeling for a long time, longer than a year, that I am lagging behind on everything, and it has only gotten worse and keeping up with Patreon things has gotten more and more difficult during this year. Arguably 2017 has also been the most emotionally draining and challenging year I've experienced, what with new love, heartbreak, learning about myself and other people and about just how difficult communication can be and how even your current best is not always good enough, finding new approaches to love and relationships, trying to keep myself from completely spiralling into depression, having a first close relative die, having to deal with completely new and unexpected money issues and having all this lead to an absolute priority and value change in how I see my worth because it cannot be tied to the quality or frequency of my artwork anymore now that that has been completely busted by other life things.

So what I think will happen after this chapter ends is (in about six more pages): I will put Feral Gentry updates and my Patreon on a pause of six months. After this I will start updating the comic again and reactivate my Patreon, and at that time I will probably change the format in some significant way involving the tiers, the type of support (monthly vs. per Thing) and possibly even the focus area. Feral Gentry is such a massive thing for me to do and yet I seem unable to produce much content beyond the comic itself right now. I will let all of the internet know when the time for the restart comes! There might be early bird goals and rewards for patrons. :)

I'm thinking the new Patreon might be about... things not Feral Gentry. This comic will stay free to read as it has always been. I might keep the early updates on Patreon as I have to date, but I'm thinking I might use it more like a tool to make content other than Feral Gentry, because currently I have no excuse to be working on anything else, because this is the one thing that I have declared people can easily support me in. I'd still like to be able to work on both the comic and side projects without shame and it seems I need to change something big for that to happen. Side projects like roleplaying stuff! Ink portraits! Short horror comics! Life comics! Feral Gentry character background comics!

Okay. I think that's everything. Thank you for reading, I am so proud of you. I am also so happy to be right here right now with you, having survived 2017. I will try to make this next one count.
