So I think this is going to be the last one-off that I do for a good few months, I kind of feel like I’m being dishonest with them, since my intent for The Dawn Chapel was to do stories, and then I started doing these single-page gags after I noticed how well they got along with reddit and twitter. Next week we will start something much longer than my usual and I was intimidated by it for a while, but now I think I am pretty psyched.
On the subject of the donation drive, about a third of the postcards are going to go out this weekend. I’d like to thank everyone who donated (which, uh, is why I am doing these postcards, I guess!), while it looks like donations have tapered off for the most part, every few days I get a pleasant surprise in the mailbox (and some of the names attached to those donations are also interesting surprises). I have a feeling that once I start uploading these postcards there may be renewed interest in donating, but I hesitate to say any more on that subject. I may have already said too much.
We are doing our best to navigate this month’s potent blend of financial weirdness, which of course is only complicated by taxes, but some additional relief is expected in our earnings from FWA’s art show. I am told one of my pieces went to live auction. This is the first time I’ve ever had my artwork go to live auction at one of these conventions, and of course it would have to happen at the first con that I mailed artwork into without actually attending.
The universe is giggling at me.
