I’m not sure exactly when it’s going to happen, but some of the magic that makes this website work will be going through a major update soon. This could be a couple months away, but I know it’s coming. Certain aspects of the site have been messing up a bit as I load some updates, but it will hopefully be fixed once the major updates occur. The automatic visual archives went poof due to my own error and there’s no viable way for me to fix it completely. I’ll try to keep it up and running manually, but I foresee more things breaking as the updates come rolling in. I appreciate your patience, and I hope that downtime will be minimized. I’ll keep you updated.
I’m taking a brief break from the comic while on vacation this week. Comics will return on July 25.
At the 2012 Creativity Festival, I encouraged visitors to my booth to try their hand at drawing their own comic to win prizes. Many people laughed the idea off or declared their lack of drawing skills as a reason not to do it, but a few brave souls took a chance and came up with some pretty great stuff. The image above was the winning entry, although its creator wished to remain anonymous (don’t worry, she got her prizes). I had multiple people review all of the entries, and this entry ended up in everyone’s top choices every time. Thanks to everyone who participated.
