Well this took longer than expected. Technology hasn’t been cooperating with me over the past few weeks. I gave it all a judgmental look until it started working again. The next new page should be roughly on time this week, barring other computer-related disasters. Thanks for your patience!
So if you haven’t noticed yet, Follower’s been on a little bit of an unexpected mini break, thanks to my computer acting up. It’s an elder iMac that I’ve had for basically a decade, and it’s reaching the end of its lifespan very unexpectedly and rapidly! There’s a graphics hardware issue of some sort that has been going on for a while, but it’s gotten way worse lately and it’s made coloring comics (or almost any digital art) difficult to the point of being nearly impossible. I made this fancy animated gif to demonstrate the problem:
Anyway! The solution! I managed to pick up an inexpensive laptop that’ll be able to handle everything I need to do to make comics, and it should get here tomorrow, and then I can get back on schedule. I can’t give enough thanks to everyone supporting us on Patreon; if I didn’t have reader support like this, I would have been pretty much out of luck!
Once the new computer gets here and I get my stuff set up, my first plan is to catch up on Follower, since it’s driving me crazy not to be able to get anything done. Hopefully I’ll have new stuff posted during this upcoming weekend.
Thanks again for your support and patience while I work this out! I can’t wait to get back to making pages.
Hey there! Break’s over and it’s back to regular Follower updates. Thank you for your patience! The comic will continue to update as usual from here on.
One of the projects I was finishing up during my Follower break was a short comic for a Pokemon Go-inspired fan book called Stardust + Candy! The full-color book will include works from approximately 30 awesome artists, and profits will benefit PetSmart Charities to help support animal rescue and adoption!
If you love Pokemon Go, I hope you’ll check it out! The previews look absolutely great so far, and I’m proud to be part of this project!
