Hi everyone.
It’s been a while but we are finally in a position to share with you our plans regarding Off-White and us creating comics in general.

The last few months were filled for us with exceptional amount of work. This also gave us the opportunity to look at the project objectively. The truth we all realise is that Off-White has not been going well for the last two years. The updates were infrequent and updating the old pages killed the flow of the story, especially for the newcomers.
We started the comic fresh out of high school; didn’t have any experience when it comes to writing stories; and very little background when it comes to digital art. Since then the comic has been going for almost 9 years. It seems like a lifetime of experience and knowledge. We are not the same artist we have been a decade ago. It is very frustrating to work against the incompetence of your past self. With that in mind continuing the story with the lack of proper set up we currently have in Volume One is very hard. Even with very conservative estimates we would have to redo around 100 pages for the story to make sense. It is a daunting task.
On top of that a month ago, we had a failure of our main backup repository of pages. A big chunk of the redone pages has been lost or corrupted. Which sets us back even further.

If we had the same amount of spare time as we did when starting the comic getting it back on track would still be a huge task, but not an impossible one. Unfortunately, this is not the case. We all have successful and highly engaging careers that we wish to pursue.

This brings us to the unavoidable conclusion – it’s time to put Off-White on an indefinite hiatus. We know it comes as a big let down for many of you, especially those who have been with us from the beginning. We have always appreciated your interest and involvement in the comic. It was the single thing that kept us going for this long. Thank you.

We love comics as a medium. We will definitely continue creating but it will take some time to work out a format that works best for us. Thank you once again for all the time you spent with us, all the comments and fan arts. Here are some Q&A you might find relevant.

1. How does the story end? Will you write a summary of the Volume 2?
No. Off-White is on indefinite hiatus – not canceled. One day we might figure out a way to continue the story, and revise it or reboot it in a different form.

2. What will happen with your Patreon?
We are going to close it. It will stay up for the next two weeks to allow the Patreons to download all content.

3.What will happen to the website?
We are planning to keep it up as long as possible. The comment section will be shut down.

4. What will happen to all the related social media?
All the available content will remain. There are just not going to be any updates in the foreseeable future.

5.Can I continue the story for you?
We would kindly ask you not to. As stated before we are keeping our options open in case we want to continue the comic in the future.

6.Will you print the Volume One it the current state?
No, the Volume One is a mess and not a thing we can be proud of so we won’t invest in printing it, sorry.

Thanks and hopefully see you again soon!



As you’ve probably noticed, during the last few months "off-White" updates were rather slow. Creating a free high-quality comic takes a lot of time and energy that we unfortunately had to put into our jobs and school. After a very long time and numerous discussions we’ve finally decided that maybe Patreon isn’t such a bad idea. After all even a few dollars per page will allow at least one of us to work a bit less over-time and concentrate on creating the comic!

You, our fabulous readers are what keep this project alive. Without your views, words of encouragement and helpful critiques we’d probably have abandoned the comic a long time ago. With pledges from you, we’ll be able to dedicate more time to the production of Off-White. There will be rewards for our patrons, too! We have a lot of sneak peeks and goodies to give to those of you who pledge!

Don’t worry – the comic is still 100% free to read for everyone and always will be. Think of our patreon as a tip jar for the artists.

Thank you very much for your support guys! You’re doing a great job on keeping us motivated and we hope to deliver you best content possible. :)

Hello dear readers, it’s been a while!

We are happy to announce we are ready to get back to posting Off-white.

First things, first: you may wonder what happened to us. The answer is overwhelmingly simple – we were just insanely busy with work. We really do enjoy working on this comic but it’s not the only thing we have going on right now.
That’s why this white wolf:


had to temporarily take a back seat and let this white wolf get a bit more of our attention:


Both Ann and Kate worked on Witcher 3 and The Witcher Battle Arena as illustrators and concept artists, so hopefully you got to see some of the work we did there!

So yeah, after the hiatus we finally managed to catch up a bit with the comic. We even have a few pages ready in advance to ensure more regular updates.

Another thing you might have noticed is the fact that we’ve finally updated our website. It’s been a long time since we’ve refreshed the coding of the page. Hopefully everything will run smoother now.
Unfortunately due to the new architecture of the website all the old comments had to go (sorry, we really did try to move them!). We also got rid of the forum and the cast page. The former, as we warned in previous updates, is gone forever. The latter needs some refreshing and will be back… soon-ish. If you find any bugs or broken links, please let us know in the comments.

Enjoy the new page, the new website and please, don’t kill us.
Hello everyone!
It's been a while since we wrote anything personal here, but today is important to us and we'd like to share with you some very good news!

We've been working on Off-White for almost 6 years now. During this time our lives gradually changed, and we've acquired new responsibilities. Ann is busy with creating a museum design for her 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 Jessi 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. Give Jessi a warm welcome and visit her deviantart [link] and twitter [link], while we work on a new page of the comic!

It's back! off-white.eu/forum

We're happy to say that our forum is again up and going. This time on a much more stable and what's more important - our own.
For those who remember the old forum, we've got good news! This time we've opened not only a O-W role-playing section but also a free-style one for all the random creativity!

Hope that you'll join us!
