So if you read my last news post, you’ll know that I’ve been working like crazy lately on uh. A lot of things. This is still the case.
I wanted to have Follower live and updating last fall (oops) and due to my real job, I fell way behind on making pages for it. I’m currently working to catch up on them, which will hopefully be a bit quicker and easier when my shiny new tablet arrives sometime next week (?) to replace my 10-year-old Wacom. She lived a good life and traveled basically everywhere with me, which is certainly a testament to how sturdy the old Graphires were, but I’m starting to feel the strain in my wrist from working so much on such a small device. Doing Messenger on paper has basically spoiled me, since I’m free to draw big sweeping lines without worrying about an edge. After some research I decided to invest in one of these 10×6″ Huion tablets. Word is they perform just as well as some of the more recent Intuos tablets (which are kinda spendy if you have a budget of essentially nothing like me) and are nearly double the size of my current device, so it seems worth a shot. I’ll definitely be posting up with some kind of review once I get it, but I have pretty high hopes for it.
Now that I’ve gotten waaay off topic, basically, I’m planning to only post new Messenger pages on Saturdays until I get Follower launched. How long will this be? Probably a month or two on the short side, maybe a bit longer. The bonus is, once it’s started, I’ll have nearly a year’s worth of buffer pages for Follower which will leave me free to work on the next issue and new Messenger pages at the same time.
tl;dr Messenger is now updating only on Saturdays for a while, Follower is coming (hopefully) sooner than never.
Thanks for reading! And don’t forget to vote for Messenger to follow the new short story I’ve been posting!
