If you’re interested in any of the Christmas card designs on the Merch page, speak up: I won’t be taking orders for much longer. I anticipate a print run next weekend, which means I’ll be closing orders by next Friday, perhaps earlier.
I have decided that, when it is convenient and makes sense, I will offer merchandise. These are limited-time offers that I will only extend when I have a product I am proud of, I am sure I can deliver it in a satisfactory time frame, and the circumstances all make sense.
Christmas is coming up, and I have two Christmas card designs under my belt. I am currently working on the third, and decided that I would dust off the old designs and offer them up for sale. If you’re interested, check out the Merch page. I want to get these to y’all in time to address and send them out, so if you’re interested at least say so because I will cut off ordering at some point, most likely near the end of October. Check ‘em out!
Yes, I know, no comic. It hasn’t been high on the priority list, and my motivation has nestled itself into an all-time low. However, I have on occasion made time to write about some of the electronic gadgets I’ve been working on, and that is now available in the Gadgets section of the site. I highly recommend you check them out, and one of the pages even has a link to a video of a project in action! I’m mildly excited about this new section, and you should embrace it with the indifference I have shown. I’m not sure what’s wrong with me, they’re neat projects, but at least my laziness will not keep you from them any longer.
Sorry, y’all. I’ve been busy straightening out a good bit of household upheaval and frankly have been a bit down on myself and my work. I’m just not in the mood to cartoon right now, and since it’s a totally voluntary effort I’m putting it aside for the rest of the week. If I feel better, I’ll return next Wednesday.
For those who have been waiting, that includes updates to my gadgets page. I’m actually a bit in to working on some of that stuff right now, I just don’t want to be working on this site. It was a stretch to convince myself to log in today and say I wouldn’t be updating for a week; I certainly won’t be loitering to update gadgets just yet.
The comic is a hobby of mine, and as such I update it whenever it is feasible for me to waste the time necessary to draw a comic. Drawing is not my only time sink, however, and I’m starting a new section of the site to showcase some of my other work. Over the coming weeks, I will be fleshing out the Gadgets section visible on the top menu bar. Feel free to ask questions or request specific articles as I introduce more pages to the section. I have included a walkthrough of my first surface-mount soldering attempt, which will probably not interest most of you but it will give you an idea of what I do. Over the coming week, I plan on putting up a long overdue teardown of a solar-powered walkway light available at your local Wal-Mart (for all your creative engineering needs) and a lot of information, including pictures, of the costume I built for Dragon*Con. With any luck, I’ll figure out these YourTubes things and even post some videos, but don’t hold your collective breath. Please check it out and let me know what you think. I will try to do this in addition to comic updates, but if I am not capable of producing a comic I will at least try to give you something here.
