Looking ahead...

Well my friends and readers, it's been about 9 months since anything was posted on this blog, but that's about to change. Since last July, my wife and I have moved, gotten settled, and I've been working with an illustration mentor who is helping me make a move towards being a free-lance illustrator. I've been learning about watercolors and all sorts of other stuff, which has been really exciting, and working to create a portfolio of images. I also had more commissioned artwork last year than all my previous years combined. All that stuff is the reason that I haven't posted any new strips. I felt like I needed to drop something, and Search and Research was the easiest thing to drop. However, Jason (my co-writer) has been consistent in encouraging me that we really couldn't leave these characters hanging like this, that we needed to bring some of our story threads to a conclusion. I mean, we've created over 150 strips at this point and it's worth the effort to complete the body of work. I've come to agree with him through some soul-searching and with the encouragement from one of my co-workers, and I'm pretty sure that, despite my work load, I can make this work, and produce the strip in a timely manner.

So, here's the plan as it sits: Jason and I are going to write the heck out of these strips, I'm going to draw the heck out of them and do my best to put a new strip up every week, and we're going to shoot for 45 new strips, which will give us 200 strips in total. Sound good?

Above you'll find a panel from a new strip that I penciled last night. Keep your eyes peeled and your feed-readers on! My best to you all,

P.S. - Thanks Karen!
