potential indefinite hiatus
Hi, guys.

While it’s true the entire first arc of August is completed, it’s becoming increasingly stressful for me to work on this story. Its themes, characters, and message are all so important to me, but in making this comic I am unintentionally hurting someone who I care about.

This is extremely difficult for me, because I know I’ve started and stopped this process so many times. I’ve promised you guys work, and I’ve done the work, but I feel guilty showing it to you. I also feel guilty not giving you what I’ve promised. I feel guilty for hurting someone I consider to be my friend. This story is years old and is swamped in a lot of personal and private matters that make me want to stop for my own wellbeing and the wellbeing of others.

I still have not made any solid decision as to whether or not I’m going to continue. Just stay aware and know that I’m really sorry. If I do not post the rest of the comic, I am considering posting a story summary so you will at least know what was going to happen. Everything is just really messed up in my head right now and I’m so sorry it’s affected my ability to share work with you.



Sorry!!

Sincerely,

Jack
Early update o:
i'll be at the Chicago Alternative Comic Expo this weekend so I'm giving you guys a page early!!

FUN FACT gumroad now accepts paypal so it's easier to download chapter one. https://gumroad.com/l/wJmys
Still figuring out image hosting :Y
Sorry about the sizes still!! I'll figure it out soon.

Reminder you can buy a pdf of the whole first chapter on gumroad!! https://gumroad.com/l/wJmys

Happy saturdayyy
uGH
sorry about the technical difficulties o-(--<
now they're really big.......... we'll figure it out lol
@Guest: nah tho
@oh wow you're back: Photobucket doesn't work anymore so I tried linking from tumblr and this disaster happened. :T I'll have it fixed by Monday!
@breathandtime: I'll be selling at a booth with Lucid! I think we're number 526.
Don't wanna wait???
Heyoo.

Sorry, I'm using the internet at our hotel for Fanime and it's really slow o-(--<

So, if you don't want to wait for updates, you can purchase a pdf of the entire first arc on my gumroad account for $10. It's 50 pages of content! Otherwise, I'll be updating once a week. The slow pace is so I have enough of a buffer to keep consistent updates.

HAHAAA
Sorry, I was getting ready for Fanime this weekend so everything got messed up! Here's the pages I promised you~~~
Yeah!!
Hey guys!

August/Hipsters in Trees will return with promised, undeniable weekly updates on Wednesday, May 20th with a three-page bonanza. I have a massive buffer of finished pages that I will be able to use while finishing the rest of the story. Yehaw!

See you in a little less than a month.

HEY FRIENDS
Ok, so I know I haven't updated in a while, but I'm here to let you know I am planning out an update schedule.

My goal is to update at least once a week, probably either sunday or monday. I'm in my final semester at art school, so life is pretty nuts. I feel so awful for not giving you guys consistent updates, so please hang in there!! I'm working on it.

And again, thank you guys for your patience. I promise pages are in the works. I've drawn up to page 46, but I need to pencil the rest before I get too into inking.

If you have any questions, hmu here or pm me!! LOVE U

SORRY......
IT'S BEEN FIVE MONTHS!!! I'M THE WORST!!!

This project is definitely not abandoned!! It's taken me so long to update because this is now my senior thesis for MCAD. I have up to page 45 drawn and I now have an assistant who flats for me, so starting January there should be at least weekly updates.

I really appreciate your patience. Thanks guys!!
@gengars: Yes! You can donate through paypal. I think there should still be a button under the donate link that works! If not, you can send money directly to jackleighgross@gmail.com through the site manually.
