If you’d already ordered charms or contacted me about them, you’re fine you’ll get your charms.
Otherwise, the charms are no longer for sale and are discontinued. I may use the designs for stickers, but since the original producer isn’t taking orders anymore and I can’t make more,
I may order…
Posted a bonus intermission page on Love Me Nice.
No fanfare or anything, just thought it’d be nice to do a one-page pause before I roll onto the next chapter. This was also a speed draw :3 Did it in WAY LESS than one day. Heck yeah.
Late-in-day not-super-early-morning reminder
This is weird but I feel like apologizing for the choppy writing and pacing of Chapter 6. Not to say all the other chapters were superb or anything, far from it. But I’m kinda disapointed in the writing side of this chapter.
I started posting the first pages of this chapter WELL over a year ago, and thanks to so many life changes (quit job, kickstarter and subsequent complications, divorce, surgery, new jobs, etc), this chapter just kinda dragged on as I focused on other things and also was simultaneously rewriting parts of the story, which means I had to change pages at almost the last minute to avoid conflicting story details.
I don’t know how it reads, I’ve been staring at this chapter for so long I don’t think I can look at it objectively. Maybe later. So, I dunno. I guess I feel like this chapter was hardly as solidly written as it should have been and I just… felt like expressing that.
my goal for the Love Me Nice book preorders is to be ready in January. And I was kicking around cover ideas.
I want it to be really minimalistic, with like only 3 colors and some half tones for monochromatic toning. Colors aren’t really final, though I like these. I’d like each book to be a different set of colors and with different characters focal on the cover. That’d be fun. But I’m getting ahead of myself, maybe.
That spine is a little too wide, but it’s just a sketch.
My day started REALLY late, so this is actually my warm up activity. I had a normal sleep schedule for a little while… it was nice while it lasted
My webcomic updated! Reblurb it or reblahb it or grind it, or… whatever it is you kids do with internet comic books
To answer questions about whether there’ll be a new LMN update soon or not… yes there will be this week
ugh doodles to tide me over because I wanna draw the next chapter RIGHT NOW but I’m still closing the current one and I still gotta finish these slipshine comics too…
… uugggghhh i need to draw cartoon animals being assholes to each other I NEED THIS
I haven’t had time to work on Love Me Nice pages with other comic pages needing to be drawn, but I made a rule that every time I sit to write a new chapter or two, I gotta draw what the characters are wearing. I reread the comic and was mad about how lazy the outfits got because I didn’t put much thought into them.
I don’t want any of the characters to ever have “default clothes” cuz that’d kinda mess up the tone I’m going for. I want them to consistently dress like real people would.
Future chapters are hardest for Claire, Kelly and Mac clothes. The Monkeys have to dress for an office/professional environment, and with Mac who doesn’t wear pants making all his clothes look different but his is hard. With Kelly, its more how she interprets “professional clothes” and always getting the idea across that she’s very out of her element.
Claire’s tricky cuz she’d never, ever, ever wear most the outfits I found while looking up maternity wear — it’s all too cutesy and flowery. But she’s too weird shaped to not change her wardrobe temporarily so she’d have to have diff. clothes. It’s hard makin her look not-frilly without looking drab as hell.
clothes are super important for world building okay, that’s how I feel, okay, okay
