I don't think there's a way to multitag folks, but there is a reason why I started out here instead of tapas. I really like and generally prefer it here :3
@RazorD9: I mean, I guess there's less atmosphere, but that's definitely not worth losing the internet.
@dracone: Oh man, thanks for catching that! Apostrophes are glitchy with the font I'm using so I need to draw them in manually... making them very easy to miss .-.;
My character's opinions do not reflect my own. I, for one, would love to belatedly go to wizard school despite being too old.
Happy new year, I didn't exactly plan for this to line up with new years but there's something nice and symbolic about it I think?

PSA: If you prefer it for any reason, we're now on Tapastic too, with... a ton more readers, too. I'm going to be updating at the exact same time on each, but if you like your pages high-res this is honestly still the best place to be reading.

Just going to make another reminder that we're on a bit of a break right now and the next chapter will start around the end of the month or the start of 2018.

I'm sure if you live in the US you've probably already heard about net neutrality ~a bunch~ but the FCC is voting on it in a couple of days. If you like using the net to look at independent content and art, losing it puts a lot of creators at risk. Net neutrality means treating all web traffic equally, and it's been the status quo for a long time for good reason. If you're able, please consider contacting your representatives and letting them know what you think. Even if the FCC votes to gut net neutrality, congress can block them from doing so.
Well, in spite of more delays than I wanted, there's the first chapter complete. I'm gonna have some filler up the next few weeks as I work on writing and planning, and hopefully chapter two will start either on 25th or the week after if the holiday season kicks my butt(!)
Backgrounds are time-consuming.

Fun fact and heads up: This chapter is almost done! There'll be a 2 week break afterwards while I get ready for the next one, but in the meantime there will some bonus content that... hopefully won't just be filler doodles.

Watercolor gets pretty tough. It's a good look, though. I can't place exactly why, but I think it really suits the tone and style here too c:
@LemPem: Thanks! Hand is definitely fine now, but there were a few days where holding a pencil was tough '':o
Sorry for this [very] late update! I've had a really hectic and busy couple of weeks, complete with job interviews and burning my drawing hand while cooking '':/
On a brighter note, happy Halloween to everyone who celebrates and remember: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6089Z_NgPk

This suspense is great, like. I'm relieved that he's alone now, but I imagine there's still a ways to go before he's somewhere safe and I'm kinda terrified about how that's gonna work out.
