Important! Schedule information for July-August-September

Possibly the oddest fantasy epic ever written. Magic vodka, Aliens, Cannibal Coffee Ninjas, Little Yellow Idol, not to mention Mysterious Cloak Guy (you can call him 'Mickey' for short... but only on a good day)

Important! Schedule information for July-August-September

Postby Tinkerbell » Thu Jul 12, 2007 12:06 am

Hey guys.

I have a problem. Basically, over the last couple of weeks my health's been falling apart. I've had a severe cold which yesterday got so severe that I took a day off work for it (for reference, the last time a cold got the best of me I was 10). That made me realise that this runs deeper than a stuffed head and a sore throat.

The truth is, I've been pushing myself way too hard over this comic for the last year and I'm beginning to burn out. Over the last three months, particularly, with the crossover wars, then starting my summer job, I've actually not really had anything resembling a holiday this summer. Yes, I'm due for a couple of weeks in Scotland starting the end of next week, but I can't quite last that long. Nine months of running from one thing or another - breakups, deaths in the family, a minor breakdown, the continual failure of my band to get off the ground and, of course, the dreaded missed update - has taken its toll and I've simply got to stop pushing myself so hard (heh, I'm listening to 'The Wall' at the moment, and 'Run Like Hell' just started playing >.>).

So I'm taking some kind of a break. It's not an absolute break, but the Drunken Scribblings will basically update as and when I feel like drawing enough for it for as long as it takes for me to get my energy back, recover and rediscover my enthusiasm for this project.

'Cuz don't get me wrong, I love this comic. I'm immensely proud of what I've achieved and of the story I've developed. I want nothing more than to see the rest of it as complete as the tiny part of it I've shared so far, but it's come time to accept that pushing myself as hard as I have been (and, though I kept quiet about it, it did get a bit ridiculous once or twice) puts the comic more at risk than taking a break would; after all, if I take a break now, I should have 40-60 years of life left in which to finish what I once reckoned I could tell in 15-20, whereas I get the impression that if I'd stuck to that 15-20 goal I might not have lived long enough to see it out...

So yeah, keep checking back for more news.

Thanks guys (I'm not about to die, Chris... ^_--).

Anyway, to prove that I'm still interested (I got the drawing bug hard this evening) and not just waiting to announce I've given up, here's a sneak peak at some future stuff I'm working on...

I'm not telling you anything about it, of course, just thought I'd tease you a bit (after all, that's why I really do this).

But hey, at least I'm now capable of getting the drawing bug. That's gotta be a step in the right direction.
