A change of pace
(19 Sep 2008)

As you may have noticed, Harmless Free Radicals and my other comics have been slowing down.

It's time for a vacation.

I've had a major life change recently in the loss of my job at the newspaper, and I haven't been able to replace it with steady work yet. It's been since June 12. Instead, I've replaced it with contract work. And on top of that, I'm not satisfied with my cartooning anymore. The grind of it is getting to me, and the quality of my artwork is not satisfying enough to counteract that grind.

This has happened to me before. Several times in my first two years of cartooning, I took a week or a month off. Then, I took a whole year off in 2004. When I came back, I came back with a vengeance, with my comic published in the Whatcom Independent, and my writing and my artwork improved by leaps and bounds.

Through fate and the changing landscapes in my own head, it's time for something like that again. So here's what I'm gonna do:

The handbills are hereby canceled. I don't have the time or money to keep up with fliering my home town. That's OK, I can bring them back later.

Harmless Free Radicals is now also officially on an "as I'm inspired basis." This is how I started the comic in the first place, so in a way it'll be like I'm starting over. What this means is that you'll be getting my most inspired writing and artwork, but it won't be regular.

However, I still have a bunch of other comic projects in the wings. Some of them are part of the Harmless Free Radicals project. Hopefully, they will get to see some light.

In the mean time, Grass Dog Studio is going to be getting my full attention. Some really cool things are about to happen with that site.

And hopefully, sometime within the next year, I'll find a new routine. To me, this is exciting. I hope it will be for you, too.
