Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into too many explicit details, my life got turned upside-down in 2016 and early 2017. My mental health took a pretty bad spill, and my fiance and I split up after more than a decade. Sarah and I are still business partners and dear friends. We're still working together on Interrobang Studios, but things are moving a little slow since we're still trying to put our respective lives back together. A lot of progress has been made, but there's still a ways to go. We reached a point around August where we started to get the Studio up and running again. That's why many of you guys have been unable to contact the studio or order books We're hoping to get that part of the operation ticking again in the coming weeks. Same deal with the Patreon. I'm also planning a new comics series and a game project that I'll be slowly unveiling in the coming months. I'm also up and doing Mascot comics again to (with a bit of an irregular update schedule.)
Along with all this and the influx of new friends, I wanted to make a concerted effort to be more active here on dA again. That means I'll be posting more as well as doing a better job keeping up with my notes, mentions, requests, etc. I'm slowly working my way through the inbox now, so thanks for everyone's patience on that. I'm a pretty approachable person and love hearing from you all, so don't be shy about reaching out. I'll do my best to try to get back to you in a reasonable amount of time.
I also plan on catching you guys up on the art I've done from 2016 to now that didn't make it on dA, as well as some previously unavailable material from my comics (including Sucks to be Weegie) and more. Gonna try to have at least have 2-3 deviations a week until you all are caught up.
So I think that's just about all of it. Again, thank you all so much for your time and support. I'll be back with that FAQ in a few weeks. In the meantime, enjoy the art and comics and feel free to reach out to me anytime. Take care, friends!
