Hey all! For those who used to read 1-600, thanks for your support and I'm sorry for the long delay in officially ending it! Going to college has been a huge change both in my schedule and in myself, and I've moved on to new projects. I only use smackjeeves to read comics now.

If you want to see my latest work (both comics and drawings) you can at www.artofmu.com.

Aww, gosh. I'm surprised people are still checking. My honest apologies for letting this comic slide off of updates.

At this point, I don't intend to finish up the comic- but still, I really appreciate the loyalty, goodness!

I am still doing comics, though they're quite a bit different now. I'm focusing on short stories instead of serial ones. If you're at all interested in those, you can see some of what I'm doing at instagram.com/artofmu, or artofmu.com.

Thank you all so much for following me through 1-600!, despite it's gradual ending due to college demands. Much love and I hope you find many a new comic to enjoy!!
Sash looks so uncomfortable/torn- which I think is SUCH a good thing! I mean, like the other commenters, I'm dying hoping he goes. But I love that he looks pretty bothered by how Blythe is acting and yet also just- bah! A picture is a thousand words and whatnot. You are excellent.
Oh my gosh, and I thought they couldn't be any cuter... Your pacing is perfect, in both individual moments and the general progression of the story. Gosh! I just love your work.
Oh, wow!! I used to read this comic a long time ago on Drunk Duck and had lost it! This is exciting. :D Not to mention getting to see him wearing everything from the costume contest!
It's great to catch up on it, I'll be looking forward to where it goes from here.

Hooray!! :) Finally back. If you haven't seen the tumblr or the edit to the last post, I'm back for winter break! I'll be updating several times a week and building a buffer for this next semester. Thank you for your continued patience, and I really am sorry for all these spotty patches. I'll always come back for breaks and summer at the least, but I really hope to figure out a system during school!

In any case, Happy Holidays and see you again very soon! :)

EDIT: Hey everyone, thanks for all the support! You guys are so sweet. I'm really sorry for being so inconsistent. I'm going to be out of town for Christmas and will be back on the 27th, and updates will be back on the 28th by the latest. I hope to build a little bit of a buffer over break.

I'll also have internet in my apartment this coming semester which will help a lot, and I hope to have once a week- probably Saturdays- as a goal since 2 or 3 times is always too much!

Thanks again and I'm very sorry for all the delays!!

Pardon the inconsistencies again! Midterms, ah.
I hope to be back more often!

Hey everyone! I'm very sorry for the long delay. I think I've got the college scheduling down now, and hope to be updating once or twice a week! No specific days as it's difficult to predict homework, but I'm going to make 1-600 a priority in the free time I do have.
Thanks for sticking with me! :)

NOTE: Augh, sorry guys! These have been the busiest few days ever. Every bit of freetime I've had I've slept. I'll try to update soon though, I sketched the next strip out tonight between packing. Thanks for your patience!

ELLIOT WHAT HAVE YOU DONE

I was considering making this the first text-free strip in the series, but it seemed better with just the little bits of text. I think text-free comics are really great, though I tend to prefer the more serious ones in that category.

Anywho, hope it was a good weekend. :)

Drama! Goodness. Don't worry though, there are definitely more lighthearted strips ahead. :)

Sorry I've been busy as of late! You can follow the tumblr and I'll be posting when I update. Or, of course, if you follow from SmackJeeves that works too!

Love an hugs.
NOTE: Characters page is up! The link is above.

Writing has been a little hard lately, so today I devoted most of my 1-600 time to writing out some advance script. I knew where I wanted to go with the chapter overall, but it's nice knowing exactly how it's gonna happen! Feels good, man.

Also, the twins drawing is finished! Cheggit out.

Phoo. Helped my sister move into her new apartment today.
And tried to nab a scanner on curb alert, but someone got it before me! Boo.

But I've decided to try going completely digital. A lot of the time I feel like having to have access to a scanner is a big issue with updates. I think it's goin' alright, we'll see! But it does make updating a lot more flexible, and probably a bit cheaper in the long run too.

Lemme know what you guys think, if you can tell the difference, etc. :)
NOTE: Getting into that busy-August rocky weather I mentioned! Updates will be 'when I can' for the next few weeks. Sorry! I'll still try to get out a few a week.

Man! I need to get back to updating right at midnight. No more of this 12:17 and 12:28 business. I do apologize.

On the bright side, I got distracted working on a 1-600 illustration, so at least y'all can also look at that! The work-in-progress is up on the tumblr.

Hope your weekend goes well!
Finallyy! It's tough keeping comics at all visually interesting during a phone call, haha. Makes a good exercise I suppose!
NOTE: Friday's update will be closer to 2 am tonight!

I'm tired, woo. Not a ton to say tonight!

But I found a really cute can of sardines. I didn't get them, but it kind of makes me want to draw the gang as sardines.
That will probably happen soon.

@Zonthe Thanks! Glad it's goin over well. :D
Happy August! :) Wow. I go back to school really soon now! Starting around the 9th it's going to be really busy for me taking care of everything for the ending summer and my apartment for next year as well as spending some time with my parents and friends before I go. Updates will probably be really slow during those couple weeks, and then a little rocky until I figure out a concrete schedule for while I'm at school. My goal is at least 2 strips a week.

Anyway, that's a while yet! Hope y'all are enjoying the end of summer too.
Sorry guys, traveling set me back further than I thought! But I've also been working on another little 1-600 project as a resolution the hairstyle-and-stuff discussion, which I'll post about soon.

Speaking of, I am super grateful to have all of you guys as fans- it's so great to have fans who are willing to discuss and still super encouraging and respectful. I can't thank you guys enough. I'm always all ears for what you guys think I can improve on, so always feel free to speak up. Tons of love!
NOTE: Updates will resume Monday! The 28th and 29th I will be visiting relatives. Have a great weekend y'all!


Hey y'all! I would really appreciate it if you could take a look at the following post and let me know what you think. You could influence the future of 1-600 a bit!

Thanks!!

@crystalgardian No need to apologize :) If people don't care for it, I'll just keep exploring the possibilities!
@Zonthe Okay! Thanks :)
@Elephanthono Yup!
@Bowen Yeah, that's totally fair! Especially with this group of characters, the variations are pretty slight. Jerry is the only one with a different nose. They do have very slight variations in eye shapes, but that's about it. I do hope to switch it up with whatever project I start next. Thanks for the feedback!
@tsubasa-myuu + @Zonthe Oh! Well thank you :) I mean, I'm glad to hear it's not a universal problem, that's reassuring! :)
Sorry this is a little late. More Mickey for now! :)

How did you know about that..?

@Hunterkirizaki Hmm, okay- who are you having trouble differentiating in particular? Mickey and Elliot here?

@Dan Cooper Okay! Those are good ideas too. I'm definitely going to start experimenting and making some changes!
Back to Mickey for a bit! Though I'll probably clarify in the actual comic before too long, to avoid confusion, Mickey does go to a different school than the rest of the gang.

Oh, and don't worry if you're curious about what the group decided- it'll be revealed soon!
