Hallo! I'm the artist and writer of a webcomic Prophecy of the Circle, a wannabe novelist, and a doodler of many things. I live just off the coast of Western Canada on a large, potentially shaky island that is nonetheless really beautiful! I'm also lucky enough to live with a fantastic fellow, TimmCosplay, who makes magnificent costumes and music videos, and also to share a roof with with a fluffy cat named Aleksi who is often referred to as The Screaming Potato. He makes most of his appearances on my Instagram.

I’m still here! Back briefly with a report. The hiatus is going well so far. I’ve been taking time to get back to other artistic endeavours and trying to figure out how to balance everything out. It’s not easy to get right, but I think I’m on the right track. As far as Prophecy of the Circle goes, I’ve been trying to lay down more groundwork ahead of time in order to take some of the guesswork out of the week-to-week. There’s a public post over here at Patreon that’s a bit about that, but essentially my previous circumstances led me to a habit of flying through fiction by the seat of my pants rather than actually making a detailed plan to work from, and it worked when I had more day-to-day time. It doesn’t in the current situation, I find that I need to do that legwork ahead of time. My current plan is to write out scripts for the entirely of Chapter Three and then build a bank of thumbnails so that when I do draw a new page, I don’t have to think too hard about it. Instead I just have to fill in the details and put it together. It should speed up the process. I’m also still working hard to create a buffer of ten weeks’ worth of comic pages to post into the queue on the homepage, and that’s what might end up taking a bit of time. I’m hoping to be ready in time for the February 5th (we're making it March 5th instead; inking took much longer than anticipated!) deadline I’ve set, but to be honest, I’d rather do this right and not have to stop again than jump the gun and wind up in potentially the same trouble as before. If things winds up taking longer, I’ll keep you posted. Periodic updates will keep happening here, and I’ll keep Patreon up to speed as it happens.

I’ve also had a generous offer from at least one fan, PezWolf, of some guest art for the homepage. He’d gone ahead and made a three page comic for me a while back, centering on a character from one of my Inktober sketches from last year featuring a tikedi with a passion for flying machines and a willingness to go headfirst off a cliff without a net. He’s generously suggested that I could post it as filler, and I thank him from the bottom of my heart for that! I’ll be posting the first page of that this coming week. If any of you out there have other works you’d like me to post in the meanwhile, let me know via the form on the homepage or through a note here! I’ll happily put them up to fill space and time.

With the holidays impending, I hope you’re all doing well. Thank you again for sticking with me through tough times. I’m eager to get back to being comfortably on my feet and getting this story told once more.

There’s a bit of a lengthy post on the homepage, but the short of it is that after a year of struggling and attempting to race uphill and falling on my face way too much, I’ve had friends and family stage a sort of intervention and convince me to stop working on Prophecy of the Circle temporarily so that I can get a buffer built, form a proper plan to manage my time better on both the comics and my other projects, and do this whole creative thing properly in the new year. 

The good news for Patreon followers and subscribers (there will still be public posts over there for the non-subscribers, btw) is that I can still show how it’s going and post creative content while I build up the buffer. There just won’t be any early access finished pages there until late January, and the comic officially starts up again on the homepage on February 5th. Ahhhh. D:  Make that March 5th! Inking took way longer than I thought.

But no, no, it’s cool. Even though it took some convincing, I’m thinking everyone’s right and this’ll be good for me. Gotta stop, take a break, and then get up and try again. This time I’ll hopefully get it right.
