I’m planning to start a weekly stream while I work on Messenger pages! Usually this will be Monday nights (eastern time). You can follow me on Twitch to get notified when I go live: https://www.twitch.tv/radiochio
I think I’m going to call it Messenger Mondays, but I haven’t got a clever name for Tuesday yet. Any ideas?
Hello readers! This is a quick update to let you know about some changes to Messenger’s update schedule.
For the past few months, I’ve been dealing on and off with some wrist pain in my drawing hand that’s made completing pages on time pretty difficult. You have probably noticed this in the number of delayed and missed updates for the comic. I’ve attempted to continue drawing despite this issue but it’s becoming clear that I need to get better at giving my wrist a break, and the best way I can see to do that is to alter our update schedule a bit.
For the next 3-6 months, depending on how manageable my wrist pain is, Messenger/Follower will update on a sporadic schedule. I am undecided yet whether this means bi-weekly updates instead of weekly ones, or whether it’ll be a batch of new pages each month. Regardless, there will still be new pages – just fewer of them, temporarily.
This isn’t a change I’m making lightly, but for me it’s become a question of getting some comics done versus none at all. I’m planning to slowly work my way back up to a weekly schedule over time, and will come back better and stronger for it.
Thanks for your continued readership and support!
Hey there! It’s been a while! Messenger has been kind of pushed to the back burner for longer than I’d expected, but I’m planning to return to regular updates on Saturday, May 6. Thanks for your patience!
As a side note: I’m currently offering Create-a-Chio commissions for Follower, which include customizing a Chio character which will later appear in the comic. If you’ve ever wanted to add your own character to the Messenger/Follower-verse, check out this page for more information! Note: These commissions are “officially” closing on May 3, however, I’m quietly leaving them open as long as it’s realistically still possible to complete one to add to the comic. Custom Chios will start appearing in a few weeks, so if you’re interested, get a note in ASAP!
And if you’d like to help me keep updating on a more regular schedule, you can also support me via commissions, Patreon, or Ko-Fi. The biggest hurdle between me and comics is time, and when you donate to/shop from/commission me, that’s time I don’t have to spend doing other freelance work and can make comics instead!
Thanks for reading, and see you in two weeks!
