Hey guys.

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

In the next five minutes or so I’m going to start upgrading the site core and everything is going to break. So don’t panic if the site looks fucked up. It’ll be back hopefully by midnight EST.

In the meantime perhaps you might like to read one of my other comics:
Sin Pararse: spinoff/prequel thing. It actually just updated.
Worst Idea: My other main comic. It’s not a fancomic but a lot of people seem to like it anyway.

Edit: Finished 😀 That was surprisingly less painful than expected. Let me know if you guys find anything broken.

A small annoucement

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Just letting you guys know that I’m disabling comments on the archive pages from now on. You’ll still be able to comment on whatever the current page happens to be, and read the old comments but once a page is in the archive no new comments will be allowed.

I’m doing this for a couple of reasons:
1) Cuanta Vida gets a lot of spambots and this greatly cuts down on places they can try to spam.
and 2) when actual people comment on a post or reply to a comment from several months or even years ago it serves no constructive purpose. The only person who is likely to see these kinds of comments is me and I don’t know what the fuck you’re responding to.

If you’re looking at the second one and thinking “But my comment was so witty and insightful! How else with the artist see how clever I am?” In this case your comment should be just as nice if left on the newest page, if not your comment probably wasn’t as great as you think. If I’m wrong in that respect you can still comment on the older pages on DeviantArt or Y! Gallery. And if I’m really really wrong and you want to tell me how wrong I am, you can comment on this post.

Thanks!

Quick update

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Just to let you guys know what’s going on.  I basically have no days off from work. I was at Dragoncon this past weekend and will be at Intervention next weekend. I’m exhausted and struggling not to fall behind on my other two comics.

I’ve finished moving the site and comments are now back on. But there may not be another CV page for a while or at the very least they’ll be a bit far between. I’m sorry about this, especially when the comic is so nearly finished, but I need to prioritize my job and the comics that actually make me some income.

On the plus side if I take some time off I can hopefully finish the comics faster  when I’m not quite so busy.

love you guys! <3

So here’s the deal.

Friday, October 28th, 2011

I just finished penciling the penultimate page of Cuanta Vida. I plan to to the last one this weekend, time permitting.

As I’ve mentioned before I’m planning to do NaNoWriMo this year. For the uninformed it means I’m writing a novel next month. The goal is 50 thousand words in 30 days. Judging mostly on the speed I wrote essays in college I think I can do it, but I probably won’t have time to do NaNo and update all of my comics (Worst Idea will probably miss an update or two as well).

The downside: CV is going on a one-month hiatus.

The upside: when it comes back I’m going to post the last five pages in five days. Starting on Monday, December 5.

That is fair, I hope.

 

Also a lot of people have asked about a print version of the comic. I’ll reiterate that I cannot legally do this with a fancomic, unless I gave the books away. Books are expensive to print and I am kind of poor. However I do plan to put together a high res PDF of the comic that you can then take to your local Kinkos or whatever and make a book yourself. I can’t say for sure when that will be ready, but it is coming.
