I must apologize. I did not know that there was an error on the site. And from my best guesses it was down for 4-7 days. It was up last Friday because the comic was posted and my Twitter auto-tweeted it then. But this morning I realized there was no tweet associated with today’s update and low and behold, a php file in a plugin took a dump and killed everything. I resolved the matter as quickly as I could.
Sadly, no one had mentioned it to me that the site was down. I avoid visiting the site to keep analytics as true as possible, so I didn’t notice either.
Anyways, I’ll keep posting the ChoGin comics for a bit, then art otherwise. I don’t know when or if I will resume any personal comic projects. It kills me to not be doing it, and in a way it’s also a relief. I hate feeling so conflicted. LOL
Also, here is something I worked on this week. It was posted to tumblr on Wednesday.
Thinking of trying to setup a Patreon. Just trying to think what to offer as milestones, etc. Plus what to write in the first place – ideas?
The comic of course would still be free, the regular weekly updates. I would offer BONUS material/content. Like I would do an extra update for every X amount of dollars each month, up to 4 extras for twice a week. FOR EXAMPLE – for $300 a month, 2 extra updates on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. For $600 4 extra updates for each Tuesday. If X amount was donated there would be no ads on the site for that month. Etc. Etc. Since I still have a regular job, I can’t do too much for extra updates.
Individual rewards would probably be like if you donate $10 a month, I’ll do a sketch for you. For those that donate X amount, I’d show the sketch files and storyboards. Maybe first dibs on extra art viewing or exclusive art stuff.
I know I’m dependable as I have always had something up for y’all on Fridays and I have no further intentions of hiatuses.
So… thoughts on milestone rewards one might be motivated for? Without reader feedback I won’t know what to offer y’all. Any input greatly appreciated. Thanks bunches! ^^
Starting this week I will be introducing the characters of the new comic. The comic itself begins this Friday, January 31st. 2014 and will update weekly to start.
I’d really like to update twice a week, but right now I am starting slow. I’m a little out of practice. XD
Now that the hardest part is out of the way… I expect you can see your first Ginpu comic of the year up and running starting…
JANUARY 31st!! WITNESS MY (not so) TRIUMPHANT RETURN!!!
(snazzy header, no? yeah I didn’t think so either.)
So far I’m doing ok but I’m limiting my stress and trying to stay relaxed to avoid complications. So what does that mean? Expect late comics and guest comics/art in place of the regular comic. I will try and get the comics done, but I can make no promises. I do promise that regardless, there WILL be something up each Friday.
If you’d like to help me out by producing a guest comic/art, please let me know. I appreciate all the help I can in this and will make it up to those that help me.
Hopefully I will have a chance to throw together a holiday wallpaper for y’all. I’ve done it every year and would hate to see myself not do it this year.
Oh yea and the Ginpu t-shirt design I showed off some time ago is finally a reality. ^^ When I have more details I will let you know. But here’s pics of the prototype I was sent. (just needed a bigger size for me. XD)
The final shirt will actually be on this color t-shirt – which I should mention is a recycled shirt. ^^
