The End. Sorry.

Notes (22 December 2011):

It's been three years since I started the strip, and I think it's best that I bring it to a close, now.

As previously mentioned, I'd been updating less and less right up until August, when the strips just dried up completely. Because I'm much handier with words than I am with pictures, I was having more fun doing the Minecraft Scribe blog than drawing this comic... although updating that has become less frequent, too.

But one of the biggest reasons I've stopped doing the strip is that, having left one retail store for another, and finding that things aren't much better there, I've been becoming increasingly bitter about retail, and I don't want to that to creep into the strip. Plus, with a completely different vibe in the new place, I've not been getting the inspirations that I was having previously.

Realistically, I should have done this sooner, and I apologise that I didn't. Thanks to all of you who read the strip over the years, and I'm sorry that I don't feel as if I can continue.

OK, this hasn't been going as well as I'd hoped. I have to try to manage my free time better, though it's not easy when fighting near-constant depression.

An additional complication of sorts is that I originally started drawing this comic, back in 2008, when I was lonely and bored. Since then, I've made a load of friends online, and we do a lot of stuff together - though even they get shut out sometimes when I'm feeling down.

That said, I will try harder to update more frequently than once a bloody month...

Hello, remember me? I'm supposed to draw comics here... I sincerely apologise. If you think a month without comics is bad, Chapter 11 of my non-comic book has been on hold for four. Sigh.

Finally, comic! Sorry it's taken so long to come up with another one - I've been out of material for some time, and it's been frustrating. I don't have that much more, to be honest, though there are some ideas. I'm going to stick to Monday updates, though.

Monday 11 April 2011

Apologies for missing more than one comic, lately. I've pretty much run out of material for the comic - so for a little while, there are only going to be updates every Monday.
