Hi guys!

I have some "Off-white" related news for you.

Me and :iconvesner: have been working on Off-White for almost 6 years now. During this time our lives gradually changed, and we've acquired new responsibilities. I'm busy with creating a museum design for my major degree in architecture, and Kate works full time on the newest Witcher game. With all that keeping up with a regular update schedule became more and more challenging. Because we are still very committed to this project, we felt that we've been letting our readers down lately. We've decided it's time to make some changes. To keep the updates regular we've invited a new member to our team! Today we welcome :iconjessi-mei: as our new artist and writer!

Here's a few words from her:

Hey Off-White readers!

You’ve probably seen me around, especially in the comment section for the past couple of years. And for some of you more experienced, long-time readers, you’ve seen me in both of the Off-White forums as both user and Global Mod. I’ve been reading Off-White since 2009 and not only have I forged a strong friendship with Kate and Ann, but I’ve met plenty of wonderful (sometimes hilarious) fellow fans that have also become dear friends of mine. This comic and this community have been a pretty important part of my life, and even though I may not participate very often as of late, I still check the site at least once a day to see what’s going on.

And with that, it’s a huge honor to be brought aboard the Off-White team! Kate and Ann have been long time role models of mine. They’ve offered critique, advice, and even taught me all sorts of things to better myself artistically, and I feel like I can finally repay them for all the headaches I’ve caused them! I feel like they’ve awarded me with a new way to better myself by allowing me to work on this project with them, and I hope to do all of y’all proud. Happy reading, everyone!

~Jessi

With this change we hope to no longer have problems with hiatuses while one of us has to take a break from Off-White either because of work or private reasons. Please, give :iconjessi-mei: a warm welcome :)
Here are few of her works:
Centralia for Tahki by Jessi-Mei Commission - Mistywren by Jessi-Mei Christmas Trade - Tanathe by Jessi-Mei

Can't say I minded waiting too much, I respect you guys have more to do than just make a comic.

Great news you got an extra set of hands, web-comics of your quality must be a hell of time sink. G'luck to all three of you.

Will y'all be posting new pages on her dA as well, much like how you and Tanathe switch off? I've already watched Jess to be sure, but I was just curious~

Can't say I saw that coming, but I'm so excited for all of you! She's clearly gifted and I have no doubt that her work will do wonders alongside yours. 
Most of the other comics out there change artists every few months or so. You guys are so dedicated and work well together to keep the style consistent. 
See guys? Change isn't always bad :) .

Off-White's plot really has me on my toes at the moment, can't wait to see how it all turns out.
