In my making webcomics panels I always talk about the importance of maintaining an update schedule. Make sure you update when you say you’re going to update. In this instance, @$$hole! updates every Wednesday and Friday.

However, unfortunately, this week that will not be the case.

It’s not the first time I’ve admitted to my buffer disappearing, and since switching over to this arc I’ve had a few issues maintaining my regular update schedule of late.

1) APRIL CONVENTIONS: Part of this is due to the volume of conventions and appearances I had in April, which ate through my entire buffer.
2) WORK / LIFE BALANCE: Another part is due to the ambitious nature of the project itself – which must be balanced on top of a full-time job and a steady (and I hope healthy) relationship with my girlfriend.
3) OTHER PROJECTS: And the third part is due to the RWP volume 2 book being funded in kickstarter (thanks to all who supported), since I now have another project on my plate needs finishing.

Unfortunately this means there is no comic update this week.

However, there is good news too: with this being a holiday weekend and my social obligations being little to none, I should have some ability to work on getting this buffer back. Which means the comic should return again next week.

Things are ramping up in the Gnome King saga, and I’m really enjoying what I’m doing with this book. I’ve been heading in this direction for a while and really wanting to do more photo / illustrated cross-overs, and now that it’s coming out I feel great. And overwhelmed. And exhilarated.
