So all in all, the year went worse than I thought it would when I made that last post in April. But, at least there's been some rays of hope at the end, right? Right? I'm really hoping those are rays of hope.
While I continue to stave off cabin fever and such, I do have at least some good news for fans of my comic which I'm going to continue soon: There's a 2020 holiday wallpaper! It involves beach elves! I've wanted to do more with them for a while, and I've had this holiday wallpaper idea in my head for a couple years. Sort of moreso now that I live somewhere where it doesn't actually snow.
So, go check it out over in the Gallery! Oh, and as an experiment, this time I'm only supplying the larger-sized versions of the 16:10 and 16:9 aspect ratios, rather than separate files for each screen size. I'm pretty sure at this point anything that needs to display such a wallpaper can scale on its own.
As usual this year, stay safe. The pandemic isn't over yet. Don't screw this up when we're getting so close.
April 25, 2020:
The year hasn't gone well so far. I'm sure you're aware of that. That's a lot of the reason I haven't had much luck with drawing lately. My job's got a very generous work-from-home policy which is very much in effect company-wide now, so I've got a lot of time at home, which is nice in a cabin fever sort of way, but it's still a really stressful time all around.
I just got done with a comic I super overplanned, just like the good ol' days, and chances are you won't even know which one it is or why it took me so long when it goes up. Speaking of which, as noted in the standby pic, I'm planning on holding off updates until I've got the rest of Chapter Eight ready to be posted. I at least know where it's going, which is good. I've had this entire chunk kicking around in my head for a while now. I'm already putting together ideas for Chapter Nine, in fact.
Still, it's a very uncertain time with a very real danger out there. Keep your head about you, be careful, and stay safe. We'll get through this.
