Schedule-Impaired

Now, I’m not one for being all politically correct. I believe in calling an egg an egg and a duck a duck. Not an ovoid protein source or a bobbing aquatic avian. However, I like the phrase “Schedule-Impaired.” And I feel that yes, yes I am schedule-impaired. I’m not lazy, because I work my ass off. But I always do seem to miss my deadlines, often by a far wider margin than I’m at all pleased with. Perhaps I am simply incapable of accurately measuring how long something will take me to do. Perhaps I guess correctly, and then decide in the middle of it, “nah, let’s go all out on this one and get detail happy!” I feel this latter bit is more accurate. I have been throwing in a lot more detail into my drawings as of late. It makes them orders of magnitude more awesome, but it does make them take an obscene amount of time. My most recent example (aside from some of my current commissions and the in-progress new wallpaper which should be available by Monday) is the first new 16×20″ poster which you can scope out here. See how awesome that is? Took me twice as long as it normally would have. Easily. So yes, because of my shift in quality I am badly out of sync timing wise.

Because of all this I currently have a huge stack of commissions ranging all the way back to Animazement several months ago. I really need to focus and get these polished off so that I am not constantly behind on everything. Because of this, I expect to have to drop Friday updates for the next couple of weeks while I catch up on backwork. I apologize profusely for the inconvenience. But I can’t put off these pieces any more. People pay me good money to have me draw for them. I owe them that work, even though my clients are extremely patient people. I hope that you all will extend me the same courtesy while I play catch up with myself.

Believe me when I say that while this is frustrating for you to be sure, it is infuriating for me. For someone as schedule-impaired as I am, it’s amazing how much I hate missing deadlines. That’s all for now. I’ll return with more art soon.

    Not a problem at all. In fact, you’re being rather modest. I would completely rub it in everyone’s faces if I ever got that many commissions. Congratulations for doing so well!

    But please don’t burn yourself into the ground in the meantime, my good sir. All work and no play…

    Yours isn’t a simple, 3-square webcomic with samey pictures in each cell. It’s a lot more complicated than that. You keep leaving me on pins and needles, but I forgive you because your work delivers.

    Sometimes when we feel that things are starting to get out of hand, instead of getting yourself worked up you need to take a step back and let things flow a day at a time, a moment at a time. I used to get stressed out a lot when I was behind in my work or other projects, small wonder I was sick at the time. You just got off being sick, don’t let it happen again by getting worked up and driving yourself into the ground.

    Don’t worry, we understand. Take it easy and don’t over do it.

    The solution is simple: stop sleeping, eating, and socializing. There, problem solved. I’d be happy to come up with solutions to all your petty inconveniences, but then you’d have to pay me as a life-coach, and my services do not come cheap.

    Hi :) I’ve been following your art since around the beginning of Comedity, but I’ve never posted or anything before.

    Just wanted to thank you for sharing your talent with us :) Art like yours is worth waiting for — don’t stress about pumping it out fast. Once a week is still way more than many comics (comics that still maintain a good reputation and a strong fan base!) — and given the detail and thoughtfulness of what you do, I’m amazed you *ever* do more than one per week. Rock on.

    Also, those prints are f-ing AMAZING.
