This comic originally appeared in Kobold Quarterly #19.
Hey and howdy! It’s been far too long since I posted ANYTHING here … in particular, an explanation for the lack of updates. It would be easy to presume that 10′x10′ Toon was just another web comic that simply evaporated … but that’s not the case. Well … maybe it is … but I’m working on reconstituting it!
My first love is cartooning. If I had my druthers on any given day, I’d spend it writing and drawing comics. And I’ve had some moderate success doing it. However, the real-world challenges of bill paying and food gathering and shelter providing mean that I still have to give primary focus to my other pursuits–namely writing and game design. I love those too, but not as much as I do cartooning.
The good news is that 2012 is starting out as a pretty successful year for me overall. For the first time since 2007, I’ve got a full-time job (though it’s a contractor position, so it’s got a relatively short shelf-life). In the meanwhile, I still have a good number of freelance assignments keeping me busy in the evenings and weekends. The bad news is, this leaves me practically NO time for drawing of any kind, with the exception of a couple of brief commission assignments. As much as I love 10′x10′ Toon, it is something that still needs to be done during my free time … and there has been precious little of that so far this year.
Luckily, because one of the assignments still regularly on my calendar is to do comics for Kobold Quarterly, I will have a new comic every few months … but I HOPE that I can find the time to do them even more regularly. Heck, I might even be able to make it back to WEEKLY … but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we?
Those of you who want to keep track of the happenings here can follow the comic at its Facebook and Twitter accounts … or you can follow me at mine and I’ll usually mention when there’s something new here.
