More Doctor
@River o' the West: Surely we'll be seeing more of the doctor. Finishing up page 11 tomorrow.

My weekly diary hasn't been consistently about Gathering Dust, so it could be quite awkward to attempt to make that venue an official forum for the comic. I'd rather encourage people to come here and share their thoughts, or perhaps my Artist page over on Facebook would be an appropriate and alternative place to post questions-- although, I rather like people to have to fill in the gaps in the narrative with their own imaginations.
I'll bet this doc...
is a continuing character? Looks interesting indeed.

I'd try posting the page just before your weekly diary. That way you can remind readers to take a look, give them a link and discuss/answer any questions about what's happening, the style and art itself, whatever people might want to talk about. Perhaps that would attract more eyeballs-- might as well encourage those interested readers to click the link and read the next chapter NOW! Strike while the iron is hot, as they say.
Excitement...
I guess there's such a thing as too much excitement! Poor artist. At least the blood didn't spoil the art.
That elevator is an adventure all by itself.

A Miniature Milestone
Ten pages and at this point I've been posting each page the moment I complete it. Would a regular posting time be any better at attracting and keeping readers? Which day would be best?

Learning as I go.

Thanks for stopping by and please do leave a comment; feedback is a great motivator.

Annoying little box
@River o' the West: I hadn't noticed that about the comment boxes before and just now, while writing this reply, I clicked to another tab and when I came back the box was gone... clicked to open another reply and watched the box with my text pop back into place and the text cleared in a fraction of a second. So here I am writing another comment.

I was going to write that things have been coming out of my scanner rather oversaturated. The colors are too bright, but maybe a bit of brightness isn't a bad thing. I'm still pulling my hair out over the style so thank you for supporting my unusual choices.
Ouch!
The comment box drives me crazy; it disappears if I don't stay put and keep typing. Anyway, glad to see things are happening here. Even if they aren't enjoyable things!

The style looks good; I like the drawing and the color-- nice!
The plot thickens...
Looks like things are gonna be happening here! Glad you're finding time (somehow) to keep up with this!

Later than I'd hoped
but here it is, this week's page of Gathering Dust. My apologies to those of you who stopped by earlier expecting a Thursday or Friday post. Until I can afford to work at this full-time I won't be able to promise a regular posting schedule. Maybe this next week I'll make amends...

True that,
@River o' the West: most of the work I've gotten over the years has been through friends or word of mouth. Selling my own services has mostly been uncomfortable and unprofitable. With this page Gathering Dust has garnered its first official fan. And the visits to the site seem a bit livelier this week. Maybe an audience has really begun to gather. Thanks again for taking the time to comment. I'm grateful to be sharing the ride.

The hardest part of creative work is making a living! Or finding the audience....

Clean up on aisle three...
Somehow there was an older version of this page here with obscured text in the last panel. I've cleaned up the mess and can now go back to stocking shelves.

Based on a true story.
But not a true story. However, it does reflect the true joy of selling your services to advertising agencies.

Thanks for commenting!
@vinz: A bit of a dreary "what if..." prologue before the plunge down the rabbit hole. Tea parties yet to come, my friend.
