What’s wrong with Patrick? Hmm…that’s not a good look.
*Little late on this one, family stuff came up.
Hi everyone, it’s been a while. Sorry to say, it’s been a lot longer of a “while” than I was hoping for. A new child in the house, flux on the job, losing the job, training for another, all has taken its toll.
But…the show must go on, and Shadow Bytes is a great creative outlet for me. I like to draw and I’ve really missed having that weekly chance to grind some graphite and slick it down in Flash.
And poor Patrick, he’s got all of this great writing that needs to be sketched out into four-panel fun.
We’ll be back! I won’t give an estimate, yet—suffice it to say I hope to be able to start drawing again soon.
Hope everyone is off to a great New Year, and maybe 2012 will be the year of the Cat… Ok, quick Googling on that one, looks like it is the year of the Dragon! Hey that’s even more awesome, besides I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Shadow say that he thinks of himself as part Dragon, perhaps on the paternal side.
Shadow Bytes will be on hold for the next month or two. We’re having a blast bringing it to you each and every week, we just celebrated our 50th strip since the official unveiling 2/15/11. But unfortunately duty calls and the litter box is full.
What? It’s a comic with a cat, that analogy totally fits.
For those of you that follow the comic regularly this may come as no surprise, but due to some other work and responsibilities, my art hand is not getting the attention it properly deserves. I hope that didn’t come off as sounding odd. It probably did. My apologies.
During the time off from postings I will be focused on building up an actual buffer to make sure that this kind of interruption doesn’t happen again and Patrick will be focused on making more epic-cool comic stories. The buffer is something I should have focused on from the comic’s birth, but I was too eager for it to begin.
We’ll keep you apprised of the comic’s status, so stay tuned and tell your friends, because when we come back, we’ll be better than ever.
