Literature
The Loud House: Tingle White Female - Ch. 5
“...Blood pressure 120 over 80, heart rate within normal range. Vital signs seem good. I think you’re gonna be okay there, kiddo. Now, you’re sure you don’t want to go to the hospital, just to be safe?”
Lori carefully got to her feet, the fibers of her rug scratching her arms as she pushed herself up. “No…” she said, standing steady. “No, I...I think I’m fine now, thank you.”
The EMTs began to stow their gear. Lori blinked down at the floor as they bid her good night and squeezed out of her bedroom, between the trembling forms of her family members.
Resigned, Lori flopped onto her bed. She rubbed her forehead. Nothing felt out of the ordinary anymore.
“Lori, sweetie,” said Rita, putting a hand to her forehead. “You’re positive you’re all right?”
Lori felt her face; no numbness. “Yeah, pretty sure,” she mumbled. “Um...what happened?”
“You experienced an ove

Literature
The Loud House: Tingle White Female - Ch. 4
“Honey? You’ve barely touched your goulash. Is something wrong?”
Lori looked up from her plate. Her parents were eyeing her concernedly.
She coughed. “Sorry,” she mumbled. “Just, um...got a lot of homework to get done tonight, that’s all.”
Rita and Lynn Sr. seemed to accept that. Lori’s sisters, on the other hand, saw right through it.
“I’ve never seen you get this bummed out over a lot of homework before, Lori,” said Luan, trying to read her sister’s hangdog expression. “You’re not still hung up on getting detention, are you?”
“Yeah, it’s not that big a deal,” Lynn added. “I get detention all the time. It’s so bogus that there’s gotta be rules about not playing hockey in the halls…”
Lori didn’t answer. She just forced another forkful of goulash into her mouth, despite her lack of appetite.
Luna blinked, picking up her milk glass. “

I've flip-flopped a lot over the last few months about whether or not I want to take a hiatus from Nineteen-Ninety-Something and work on other projects for a while. The more I think about it, though, it's no longer a question of whether or not I want to. It's more like I need to.

Even in spite of its polarizing reception, the big epic Duquesne family story arc had its fair share of beats that I personally wish I could've executed better. I think I overextended myself in my efforts to do a daily comic strip with multiple ongoing story arcs - keeping it all straight in my head and trying to make each arc good is sort of taxing my sanity and sapping my creative energy. I need to take a breather for a bit and rethink my approach, and maybe go back to shorter episodic stories when I return.

Also, there's the fact that this series takes up an awful lot of my time for something I don't get paid for. I want to focus on submitting my work to publishers again, and I think a series that isn't so dark and cynical would be a better option to shop around. I haven't done anything with Off the Deep End in forever, so I'd like to dust that off and see if any syndicates are interested in it. I think it'd be more fun to write and draw that for a while.

So I'm thinking May 16 will be the last day of Nineteen-Ninety-Something before I take my break. I'll keep drawing other things, of course, but I just need to put this series on pause for a bit while I figure out how to make it fun and exciting for me again. So just hang tight, and Joel and his sarcastic nerdy buddies will be back soon. And in the meantime, let's see if we can get to know some of my other characters a little better :)

So what are you going to do with Rick?

He's the focus of the arc I've got planned for the rest of 1993, the one I needed to take a break before I started. 1993 was a year of a lot of controversial political changes, like the Brady Bill and the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy, and I knew I could hinge a good Rick arc onto all of that. Instead of painting him as a one-dimensional stereotype of the worst kind of conservative gun owner, I want to delve into why and how he got the way he is, and what drives him to make bad choices like neglecting his wife and screaming at his son. People have said in the past that writing antagonists is my biggest stumbling block as a writer, so I want to make sure I do this right.

Two general questions for ya:
1) Any useful tips for moving from how I used to draw things (one step final product, usu. in pencil), to how you and other folk make yours/theirs?
2) mind-blank :( (Sad) OH yeah... I remember you having some kind of problem years back with dArt free vs. paid accounts... What was it, and should I go paid or stay free?

How do you feel about the recent news of the New Looney Tunes shorts program? Feel WB is finally going in the right path? Also quick hypothetical question if you were in charge of a short under this program which Looney Tunes would you pick to appear?

How well did I capture your image? (Especially since the only reference I was able to work with was some fanart from a few years back)
