@Aprillen and @Mistwraith, the phrasing is correct. each brother gets one answer. "you three" the brothers "your answers" their individual answers.

@NellyOnly: i was only there for the last two weeks of it but it was still really cool ^^
@Charlotte057: hmm, not sure about that ;D
@JoKeR: thank you so much for sticking around! <3 don't worry i plan to finish it ^^

soo it's been a while, huh!
like i said in the update i posted at the end of october, i've been busy with a full time job in animation, but the project i was on finally finished and i'm taking some time off to get hemlock #5 done!!

there are two new pages today. i'm aiming to get back to a weekly update schedule - so far, i can definitely guarantee an update next friday as well!

i've also set up a patreon page to help me out with focusing on comics while i'm not working. i don't have any idea what i'm doing yet so bear with me orz

hey guys >< it’s been a while! i’ve been meaning to make this post for a really long time, but as will be explained, real life happened.

where have you been??
so i graduated with a masters in animation! yaaay! unfortunately i didn’t manage to finish my thesis film on time (i still got a good mark, but bleh) because i bit off way more than i could chew, plus mental health problems put a real wrench in the works.

after hand in, my plan was to take a month off because i was really burnt out, and then to take the summer off to work on hemlock and finishing my thesis film before looking for a job. but, literally the day i was going to get to work, i got an unexpected internship offer doing animation for skype at a fancy studio that i really couldn’t turn down, so i spent about 6 weeks working really long hours and consequently had no time or energy to do any of my own work.

that job ended…and then the same week my mentor at Inkubus London immediately gave me another job offer to work on a christmas advert (if you live in the netherlands you might see it on tv!). being that it was the highest paid job i’ve ever been offered, i couldn’t say no to that either.

so that advert just wrapped! i’m going to be doing some more work at Inkubus soon, but i’ve finally had a week to just breathe. the zombie animation above is literally the first work i’ve done for myself and not for uni or a job since…maybe 2015, which is really sad, now i think about it…

when is hemlock coming back!?
the short answer is, it will be back when it’s back. the long answer is that while i’m working, i’m exhausted. my mental health has been shit this year and holding down these animation jobs has been pretty taxing, and i’ve yet to figure out the work/energy/free time balance required for making hemlock. now that i’ve got a week or two off i’m hoping to squeeze some pages in.

i have not given up on hemlock! but hemlock doesn’t earn me a living, guys, and i have to take freelance work where i can get it, when i can get it. if someone drew up a graph of webcomic artists and their update frequency compared to their age/ when they leave university and enter the workforce, i think the drop off would be pretty alarming to look at. all i can say is that i still want to finish it, and thank you all for your patience.

what happened to your digital PDFs for sale?
here’s some good news at last! now that the VATMOSS stuff seems to have settled, i’ve set up a new digital store over on gumroad! including the digital debut of the mini hemlock story i did last year, and a printable DIY minizine! click here, please go check it out~

anyway i hope that answers some of your questions guys!
feel free to send me a message if that doesn’t clear things up. you can also find me most often on my personal/shitposting twitter now, scelinesceline.
@Echos: more like trade paperbacks, they're perfect-bound so that means they have a spine ^^
