I’ve been out of it for so long all the topics I was going to talk about during this whole thing have just left my mind. That’s the biggest problem of having no buffer. If I get screwed up I just have to stumble along & do my best. You can hardly tell I haven’t had one for over 5 years though. I’ve done pretty well, all things considered. I’m better under pressure than many cartoonists on a good day. I’ve done better in general because I don’t treat this as just a thing I can do or not do & people will still pay me. Maybe some people can get away with that, but I don’t think I’m one of them. Maybe if my art was really fantastic I could go for months without an update, & get articles written about my struggles, but I’m just good enough to get by but still have to hustle. At the very least my patrons are forgiving when I can’t get bonus stuff up all the time. I’m allowed to fail on that front a bit at least. Being sick has effectively wasted a month of time for me. God forbid I ever get seriously ill. This house of cards will fall down around me like a flashback in a movie. XD I guess everyone kind of hobbles along the same way, they just do it differently because they aren’t the lynchpin of their jobs or whatever, but everyone still kind of has to rely on themselves like this on some level. I used to try and explain to my dad why I didn’t just go out and get a new job when things were bad, but he never really seemed to understand that some people can’t just hop from job to job. It took me years to get an okay job, years to work my way up the ladder, & seconds to lose it all. That’s the sword hanging above the heads of most people. We learn to ignore it so we can sleep at night. Although I wasn’t very good at that either…

This Post Will Confuse People.

The blog under the blog has always accidentally caught people by surprise. It’s original purpose was to present information on the homepage that wasn’t time sensitive. The rise of social media kind of made it superfluous, but now social media is falling away & the secondary blog seems like It might actually become useful again since Twitter isn’t the powerhouse it was half a decade ago. At this moment I’m just making this post so that the big image posts won’t appear on every comic page. It’ll just be easy to load text. Job done. Now I can go about doing some other stuff I need to do.
