Yea update!
You can't take these colours away from me. You'll have to pry them from my cold, arthritic hands.

In other news, it's that guy!



<sup>his design hasn't changed drastically in the eighteen months it's been since page 4 what are you talking about</sup>
Back in business! Greyscale made this go a lot faster, so let's see how I do with consistency. I decided to go Sin City style, with occasional accent colours for thematically significant things.
Enjoy this casual introduction of 3 supporting characters.

What year is it

The new place is awesome, my job is easy-street now that I'm used to it, and we just got the fridge and washing machine installed today.
All that's left is to finish unpacking, and in the meantime, I'm going to try and get pages done faster.

In comics-related news, pretty soon I'll be sharing the Kickstarter for an anthology that I did some pages for. I also have another paid gig that I need to finish by the end of the year - it's only 8 pages so it'll be easy to manage in between working on Smiler and finishing issue 1 of Baby Bird.

Catch you all on the flip-flop.
Fatalis is Latin for DEADLY

So, my new job is going pretty well -- except for the part where I'm not even three weeks in and I've had to take time off on account of contracting a gross, contagious illness.

Point is, we have more disposable income than ever, and even though it's still very turbulent because moving house is a huge money sink, we're feeling much less stressed about our finances.

I'm doing my best to work on the comic whenever I can without stressing myself out too hard, but with everything going on around it, I expect the update schedule to be bumpy for a little longer.
Realization
I just realized that it was Roganmaru's twin brother that killed the prince in the Catalyst chapters. Can't wait to find out the reason why, a love triangle perhaps?
ipad pro = <3 all the things you can do on it

but I'm glad things are going wonderfully for you
HERE'S WHAT'S GOING ON:
TL;DR: I'm now a free-range artist and no longer have to work at a desk; moving, moving, moving; Patreon can suck a fart; I might have an actual grown-up job.

1) I did this whole page on the iPad Pro.
I'm deeply smitten with Clip Studio Paint and when I found out that I could have the full version on my beloved iPad, I immediately went and downloaded it.

2) My mum is selling her house, so for the past few months I've been going over a few times a week to help with packing and cleaning.

3) I don't know if you've been appraised of the new FUBAR that Patreon has pulled, but I'll be looking for a new crowdfunding service. Might just set up a monthly donation button with Paypal, or Ko Fi or something.

4) Hubby and I have taken some steps to improve our living situation and are now waiting for various applications to be processed. If things go the way we hope, we'll have a new, more comfortable place (more moving... yay.) and I'll have a permanent part-time corporate office job, in air-conditioning, in the middle of the city. I'M SO EXCITED. This job would be so perfect, oh my god I hope I get it.
Well ill be seeing THAT in my dreams tonight
El finito
I... think it's done? What day is it?
