Blegh. Raise your hand if you didn't see this coming. :D
Seriously though, I hate to do this, but I think it'll be best for the comic and for you guys. Now you know when to check for a comic, and I have a different sort of pressure to put on myself for getting pages done. I've set myself a ridiculous goal that will hopefully put me well ahead of our posting rate, as well as getting used to getting out of bed and bloody well working.
One of the things Shamus and I agreed on when we moved out here, that since I am unable to work legally, I would make art my full time job. Yeah, turns out that's really hard, and I've been doing a piss poor job at it. I don't think he's about to ship me back to my parents though, so instead we get to try to figure out a way to get me working more often than not.
I'm going to try pencilling a batch of pages at a time, then inking them, then flats, etc. This seemed to work pretty well for a little bit there in the summer, when I thought I could do two pages a week, and then promptly fell on my face. If I can get a bunch of pages done up before posting time, then I can keep in the swing of doing say.. 3 pages at a time, instead of rushing to finish the one page before the posting time.
I also plan to try to keep a tumblr updated during all this (haha, way to make this hard on myself), so if you're interested in that, you should check out http://ashayta.tumblr.com/ and poke me a lot if I fall silent.
Now my fridge is making alarming noises, so I have to go check that out, and then get on Shamus's case to get me some thumbnails to work on this week. <3
