Reason 1: I have recently acquired a job, and am now working almost full-time. That means I'm not home long enough to do a comic on any sort of schedule.
Reason 2: I have several other projects that I'm trying to finish that have been put off for longer than this comic has existed. In order to keep my mental sanity and health I need ot finish them. No most of them aren't art projects.
Reason 3: The site needs a major overhaul. Redesign, archive fix, whatever. I am doing that myself - with some gracious help from our webmaster who is patiently teaching me how NOT to blow up html. I need the next 6 weeks to work on that.
Reason 4: Upon the reemergence of this strip I would absolutely love to have Nightmares finished and done. I AM working on this. I have given myself the deadline of October 29th for that.
So on October 31st you can expect to see - a redesigned site (sans bloody stupid tagboard), a large update comprising the last pages of Nightmares, an organized archive, and a happy artist. Until then I will post sporadic updates here and in my personal journal (mind you those updates will have "language" in them, these will be polite).
In the meantime I still be posting one shot art pieces on my Deviant Art account. If you're interested.
