Wonder Weenies :: What? Frank wasn't around for most of the Boggler's shenanigans. Out of any of the team, he should have been the one to play the game of Boggle... you know you were thinking it.

Unfortunate Timing, I'm afraid...

So I am going through a rough patch.

I made it through the fall of '18 fairly well... a lot of you know I took many short breaks as I was dealing with some nasty depression. I made it through that no problem (okay, plenty of problems but the important thing is I made it through) and got back on my regular update schedule. I am very excited I did so.


Mid-November I was informed by my day job... the day job I moved to my current city of residence for; the day job that I obtained a new apartment for; the day job I was very happy with... that they had restructured and eliminated my position. Well that is a huge pile of suck, right there. I managed to eke by through November and December (with a huge deal of help from my family), but going forward I am not so sure about my financial situation. I have been looking for work; I have. The few prospects I was hopeful for did not pan out... the few offers I got were too far away and for too little pay; accepting them would have meant I was essentially working for not enough gas money to make it to work.

I have always been a hard worker and never expected to have this problem. I have never made a ton of money, mind you- but I never expected to make none. My non-cartooning experience has, for the most part, been in the non-profit sector working with at risk youth, mostly depressed and suicidal teens- close to twenty years worth of experience. Unfortunately, I do not have a degree and most places in the field I have applied at have offered me entry level work or told me they wanted a more experienced candidate. By the way, "ouch."

So what does all this have to do with you Remedialites? Well... I may have to take a hiatus. I know I know... but this one may be unavoidable. This one may be due to me not having internet due to not having an income. I do plan on finishing the story with Insane Ian and The Boggler. I also plan on building a buffer while I am offline. I may attempt a work around (maybe going to the library to upload or something) but until I work out a day job again, I may not be able to afford to stay online. Kinda gotta prioritize  things a bit (whhaaaaaat? Internet isn't tops on my list?!?).  I will do my best to keep updating and maybe if I am lucky there will be no interruptions at all. There probably will be, but hey- we might get lucky. Also know that I think mentally I can handle things... depression is a bitch sometimes and I don't want anyone to worry about all the horrible things it can lead to. I have plenty of support and know where to turn when I need help.

This is not an easy blog for me to write but I wanted you all to know. I try my hardest to not let personal things interfere with bringing you all comics to enjoy- creating comics is one of my true passions. Currently, they don't bring in a lot of income, but I still enjoy creating them and having them read. Of course, I am open to commissions as well if you are so inclined. Email me at [email protected] with any inquiries.

Again, I will do my absolute best to maintain my update schedule- and I have to work... and eat... and keep my phone on so I can be called about jobs... and drive; need that car insurance... electricity... if I maintain all of that, there will be internet and there will be comics.

So, don't worry about-- okay. Worry. Worry, but at an appropriate level. If I go away for a bit, I promise I will return as soon as I possibly can. I am a huge!
