Today’s tip features a cameo appearance from an ancient technology, and a cameo appearance from Eldora, from Messenger. Why VHS? Why not?
Since Follower is temporarily updating every other week, I’m starting a little art series on the off-weeks called ”The Chios’ Guide to Surviving the Impending Apocalypse”! The tips have been generated by a copywriting AI so they’re going to get more and more ridiculous as things go on, but maybe we’ll learn something. Maybe.
Hey readers! Long time no post. I have a few things to write about that you may be interested in, so let’s get to it!
I’m in the process of moving, and to help buffer moving-related expenses, I’m having a Pixel Garage Sale this week! That means you can get cheap commissions ($5 for a head-and-shoulders character portrait, or $10 for a colored single-character drawing) or inexpensive copies of the comics I have on gumroad! Those are 30% off this week using the code garagesale. Help me get rid of these spare pixels so I don’t have to haul them to the new place! (Yes I do. Of course I do. You can never get rid of pixels.)
I’ve been producing little making-of videos while working on the comic, and posting them for patrons, releasing them a few weeks later for everyone else. There are two videos up now for everyone to see! Check out our YouTube channel here.
Lastly, the Patreon is still going strong! I am blown away and incredibly grateful for the support we’ve gotten so far. I did a lot of thinking and made a hard choice to move bonus Messenger pages to a higher milestone tier, simply because I’ve fallen behind and needed to find a way to better balance the workload I created for myself, at least temporarily. Never fear, though, I’ve replaced them with a new reward for all patrons: a monthly sketchbook of various things I’ve been working on. I’ll also take suggestions for themes. This is something I do for myself already anyway, so it won’t have the same devastating effect on my workload, and will still produce a neat reward for supporters. All other milestones will remain the same, and rewards are unchanged as well. To find our more about our Patreon, click here. I truly appreciate the support we’ve gotten so far, it really does mean a lot to both Delade and I.
I can’t believe how quickly chapter two is progressing; we’ve written scripts through chapter five, so there’s lots more to come in the world of Follower! Chapter two will probably see print in February or March of 2015, depending on how quickly I can finish the art. I can’t wait.
That’s about all I have to say for now, so thanks for reading, and don’t forget to share a link to Follower with your friends! All we want for Christmas is new readers.
