A webcomic done in nods of tribute and parody to animation long ago... like Disney and Bluth.

Switching Sites, Daunting Fatigue Battle

March 23, 2012

Issue 5 of 'Keeping Up with Thursday' is finally completed, and the Vinnie mouse storyline is now coming to a head. I'm quite pleased with this one - a lot has happened for Patrick's poor, sneezy companion, and the in-jokes and references, to me, are as balanced out as the progress in his journey itself. I finally have time to visit this site now in an effort to clean this whole website up, and give it a new look! I think Jigsy has some new layouts I can probably work with, but for now, I have to see what I can do with what's available.

It has been a rough ride for me to be able to work on this comic. Especially towards the end, the sudden surge of people giving me a hard time even when I'm being friendly or in kind, has not been a particularly fun vacation for me. I've been gaining a lot of watchers and notable readers, which I'm thankful for, but I've been dealt a lot of bad eggs in particular who've done nothing but slow me down. As such, a lot of plans that went into trying to enjoy this Issue 5 and do things I normally wouldn't have been caught dead dealing with in the past have been slow and sluggish. I even missed something for St. Patrick's day, and instead chose time to just not go online. End of the issue weariness played in this factor, making me pretty frustrated trying to get it out on time. These things are not as easy as people might think they are!

While the events leading up to the end of the issue have burned me out, I'd like to think that I'm finally overcoming this and willing to pick up the slack because of this. There is support there, thankfully. Well-wishers, I owe them nothing but the finest amount of support I can give them. I'm not the kind of person I might have been then, and I'd like to think I've improved in the personality department. Mileage may vary, I suppose, but I know I've been in good-standing since this comic took off. It's my hope to continue this.

However, one thing that was the result of this has left me no choice but to quietly leave FurAffinity for the rest of the year. It's been the home of several incidents that have not bode well since my time there, in particular, mostly last year, but another similar event has made me think twice. This time, I'm gone for good; I've logged off, and I see no reason to return once more. For what good that was had there though, it was an enjoyable, honest-to-god run. I will not comment on anything bad. This gives me absolutely the best reason to recline while also setting up the stage now to finally join SmackJeeves, an official one this time, and not just a mere passing mention like I've done before. Unfortunately, the comic won't be revised and redone-- something I've been meaning to do since I first discussed it with a friend. Issues 1 - 3 will look as they have been since it started; I'm too tired to redo them again in the new style, layout, and size.

If anyone's interested, the DC comics tributes have gone up on my deviantArt, as well as stuff for a Don Bluth fan art session the previous month. Those were a blast to do, and as of this writing, I'm hoping I can do more in the future. Side comics as well as an official Beverly Mouse introduction have come since then as well, giving her a proper arrival. A real comic with her will come into fruition soon, but the intent will be to cover other such ground first.

Tired, but still standing in the ring with the belt like a WWE wrestler, I'm here and doing okay.

I hope everyone has a good April, and I'll see you readers on the 6th. :)
