So I see people are returning to my page everyday, maybe to see if there are some updates on wightfolk maybe?
I been thinking for a long time on giving you a little timeline on what I think and how the story progress. 

First of all, why is it taking such a long time between each pageEach page takes about 8-10 hours to do. The first 30 pages was done in 6 months, and it's three years since then, we should have been on page 200 by now, so where are they?:
Three things - Quality, story and time.

1 Quality: When I startet, I went full speed ahead. I did not care for quality, I cared to tell a story. To many times I had seen other comics come and stop in just a few pages in. Usually they was in great quality, but extremely time consuming for the artist, so they gave up in the middle. I did not want that to happen to me and I glad I did it. Since then I have tried to raise my quality, to see how much I can add without loosing speed. I also wasted some time by experimenting an revisiting some pages like page 1, which became 3. 

2 Story: I take breaks from time to time to see where I am and where I'm going. I have an overall plot, but the details need to be sorted out.

3 Time: Wight Folk is a spare time project, it comes after family and job. Each page takes about 8-10 hours to do, with all afterworks too. Think of that for a moment...that is not efficient working hours, it's 10 minutes here, and hour there, half an hour there.
And now I have two kids and when they finally have gone to bed I'm many times exhausted both in mind and body.

Timeline: I have a goal to be done in two years time. I have already thought of continuation after that, but it might take a more book form with illustrations, to move up the pace a little. 

Now? Page 94 and 95 is mostly done, I plan to release them week after week in January.

Thank you for your support and kind words, if I don't see you, Merry Christmas:
