Hello
As of this time of writing there's a buffer lasting up to January of next year, and more to come.
Next update will start on November 7th, and will update once a week again from then.


Comic News
---
I have posters available of the cover.
They're on 18"x24" silk matte paper with some effects. One version is muted with glossy spot work, the other has brighter colors with a sealed glitter effect and a subtle metallic. Store here.
For a limited time they come with a doodle.

I also made comic themed playlists for fun, using a mixture of songs from early and late development. Music has been a huge influence to the comic, mostly by tone. Guess which band gave the most imprint.

Seluall -- The "general" feel.
Seluhye -- The "highs" that will become more relevant.

If you enjoyed them, let me know.


Personal News

I've been recently diagnosed with Non-24-Hour Sleep Wake Disorder. Wiki, NORD

I may make something to describe all this, but I'm still figuring out the details. In summary the symptoms are very debilitating and have been impacting my art and writing for awhile.

There isn't really a cure but I stopped forcing myself to have a conventional schedule. The relief is inconsistent, but better than what I was doing before.
Outside of excessive sleepiness is the mental health stuff which hasn't been great.

What this all means: My output is still slow, but at least I know where it's coming from.

Ah, this same thing happened in our school. The AV Club, my art class, and Art 2 were all combined. So I got to hang out with some older students (some were my sister's friends). I felt so cool having "older friends" who helped me out.

Small town schools...hurray! (You tell me if I'm being sarcastic XD But seriously, our Art teacher was the best. He was so cool, very open to people experimenting, unlike a lot of horror stories I hear from people).

Wow putting the AV Club there too huh
Art teachers like that are great for giving students some breathing room. Ours was more or less open as well.

Yeah. The AV club/class was only like 4 people. The whole class was like...maybe 15 people o_O (my graduating class was like...maybe 80/86 kids?)

Legit, I went to a small school, so if the classes weren't combined, they weren't offered. D: It was cool how well it was handled. The lower art class was given an assignment, higher level had some harder/more detailed tasks that were built on the assignment we had, then he'd gather the AV kids aside (or set them up first, or sometimes one class would have continued work time, while he dealt with them. Dude was mad skilled and organized, while being chill af. I mean it when I say he was one of the best). Anyway, sorry for the unrelated babbling XD Glad to see you're still working on this.

I think I have that. Always had a tendency to want to sleep a little later each day. Stupid 24 hour cycle. Oh well just happy to see more pages coming out :)

If you're interested in knowing for sure I recommend filling out a visual sleep journal like this one.
And then it's up to you if you want to see a doctor.
It's typically a blind person problem - Sleep doc might try to rule out other things first.

Yeah it feels nice to finally share these.

Yay you’re back! So glad you’ve continued to work on this despite difficult medical issues. It’s great that you’ve finally gotten a name for the problem and have a better idea how to approach it. I always look forward to reading these.
