I’m very sad about this.
My Toshiba, which I got in May as a graduation gift, for some bizarre reason, needs to go to the manufacturer to get a new hard drive because it won’t work otherwise. I’m a little angry more out of principle of the matter. I can live without a computer (smart phones and bumming mom’s computer makes things a little easier), but really, it’s this: a computer should not break after 6 months of use. All because Toshiba sent a message saying, “We have an update for the hardware! You’ll need to restart your computer for it to take effect!” Then the update makes the “Starting Windows” screen freeze and the hard drive stop spinning. Toshiba, what the hell?
Sadly, this means that I’ll have to hold off on updating The Legend of Jamie Roberts. I HATE to do that because I just released it last week! But my scanner doesn’t like the computer I’m using now, and I didn’t get back-ups of the pages just in case something like this happened. So I have to put the comic on hiatus.
To make up for that, I’m going to keep working on pages for it, so that when it’s back up online, I can update it twice a week instead of just once a week. I’m also going to make some bonus art for the comic, in the form of concept sketches and sneak peeks. That way there will be more eye-candy for you once the comic is back.
I’m starting a poster! With any luck it will be done before the end of the month, so you can order it in time for Christmas! It’ll be on sale at my Storenvy, but I’ll see if there’s a way I can set up pre-orders for it so you can order one before I release it to the world. Also, expect to see concept sketches for the poster over at the Facebook page. Just don’t be surprised if the picture quality is a little less than expected, because I’ll be using the camera on my phone (again, scanner issues).
With any luck, I’ll be updating this blog more often, too! I just really like to use this as like a public journal. It seems more natural to me than using it as like a marketing tool to persuade people to buy stuff or con somebody into doing something, like what I see a lot of other blogs do. I’m still getting used to blogging, though, so we’ll see what happens later.
I’ll see you again soon, with any luck!
