We all thought it was gone. We thought it went into hiding for yet another year, allowing us the opportunity to feel the sun on our faces and smell the thaw of melting snow as the sound of cool waters trickling from one elevation to the next sliced the ice underneath it. That’s what we get for underestimating the persistence of Winter. Like the death rattle of a tough old veteran, Winter is hitting us with one last week of sub zero temperatures to keep us on our toes.
Speaking of staying on our toes, we’re all still hard at work with the comics, but I have discovered that we’ll have to prioritize the work to get anything done. From now on, blog updates will be somewhat erratic. We will try to put up as many shorts on the site as possible throughout the year, but monthly may be asking a bit much. The best thing for y’all to do is follow us on Twitter or Facebook to see when updates go up. See those buttons on the left side of the site? Click ’em and you can be notified ASAP when an update is made to the site, because I know all of you are hitting that refresh button on your Netscape Navigators and eating up Bandwidth on your AOL account anticipating my next line of prose or Peter’s next frame of art.
For now, try to keep warm, we’ll be complaining about the Summer in no time.
I know all of you are itching for Spring to start. It’s a new beginning, a time to take stock of what lies ahead of us in the year. For us, that’s another Con or a few, writing, spring boarding and more books published. Finding time for all of this in the midst of other things has become difficult for us here at Fancy Tuna. Peter is in full swing with late nights at the office in his day job, My keyboard is about to fall apart from all the writing from mine and Britt is starting up a new day job where her keyboard will beg for cessation.
I know it all seems like a poor excuse for those looking for volume 3 of PPC, or the next page of Maddy McGee P.I., or looking to where our new project is going to take us, but you all have to be patient. Fancy Tuna Comics is VERY small, and is a labor of love. Until we have enough readers to pay for all of this (as I spin around my bachelor apartment in a flourish to show off it’s grandeur) the three of us have to pay for all of these projects out of pocket and need the jobs we work.
So, until new stuff gets off the ground and is properly funded, please be patient. Thanks for understanding!
Looking outside, it seems that father winter has once again blessed us with a blustery and snowy season. The snow gently falls and the wind chills us to the bone. As cold as it gets though, there are couple things to remember. Th Winter will end eventually, it’s always warmer inside with friends and family and Fancy Tuna is hard at work to bring you quality sequential art based entertainment. So cheer up, everyone.
WE LIVE ONCE MORE!
It’s good to be back, everyone! We’re currently hard at work, and it’s great to be posting again!
Peter and I were putting up and decorating the Christmas tree the other day, and it occurred to me; The year is almost over. 2014 just whizzed by. A lot has happened since the previous year and a lot has changed since the beginning of the year. Peter has found gainful employment at a design firm as I have found a new job in market research, Fancy Tuna was unable to be at as many conventions as it was fist hoped in 2013, but we haven’t given up on that for 2015. We’ll try even harder to make more conventions than the past year. We realize Perfume and Primer Caps and Maddy McGee still have a ways to go until it’s fully recognized by the comic fans and convention goers. Next week we’ll be posting a special Fragrant Fragment for Christmas and that should wrap up the year as we take time off for the Holidays.
