Okay and we’re back!
FIRST, something to make our lives a little more convenient, Mare Internum email updates
I’m glad I finally found a way to do this! I won’t use your emails for anything nefarious; just simple notifications as soon as the new pages is up. I post tumblr/ twitter/ facebook/ etc updates too, but this way you will be notified as soon as the page goes live at the random time of day I actually update. Here’s an example of what a notification looks like; just a simple link image and button. Hopefully this system works out okay for those of you who don’t like checking back every other day to see when I’m alive :]
Speaking of which, I’ve been realllly busy with Kickstarter things. Thanks for your patience as I spend many dollars and hours getting the 2,000+ orders packed for fulfillment. I can get back to work on comics a bit more regularly now that the book is through its final round of edits… it’s hard to let it go! Being a web artist, I’ve never had to commit to print before…not easy to say “okay now edits are done,” after years of surreptitiously retconning bad art, but I did it.
Since my life is a capitalist nightmare as of late, this month is giveaway month. Namely, of food!thrips.
Look at all these cute guys!! I will be giving 10 thrip stickers to MI readers this month! To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is comment on the site sometime in October. I will be randomly selecting 10 comments at the end of the month… as long as your email is valid and I can reach you through it, I’ll be able to send one to you! I don’t care where you live, I’ll ship to anywhere. Just a little way to say thank you for reading :]
If you’re a $5+ Patron, you have an even better chance of winning a sticker or even original art from me! Same rules apply, just leave a comment anywhere on the site or participate in the naming contest, to name one of the daily crab drawings I am making for Inktober. You can find the details on that right here.
OK I have more to say but this update is getting long so I’ll shut up~
