When no new Blogs are written here, when I don't get on Facebook, when I don't answer emails, and I don't return phone calls it means one of two things. One, that I am so engrossed in a new comic project that I don't have time for anything else. Or, two, that I have been given a temporary work promotion (which means waking at 5 a.m. and arriving home after 6 p.m.) and I am too tired to do anything after my work day. Over the past four weeks it has been the latter.
Normal Service will resume in the middle of next week! Thank you for your patience and for reading this message....
