This past Sunday was your artist’s birthday! Have yourself a slice of virtual cake, and consider donating a few dollars via PayPal to sailorptah (at) yahoo (dot) com.
Your artist has work all day today, but the next three BICP pages are sketched, and one should be finished and posted by tonight, getting us back on schedule.
In the meantime:
The St. Louis area food bank serves the people of Ferguson. One of the reasons that’s especially important right now is that many of the town’s children rely on free/discounted school lunches, and the schools are currently closed. If you’ve been looking for a way to help, this is a reputable place to donate.
All right, folks, the writing is on the wall. Between work, volunteering, and general life events — most of them positive, just time-consuming — I’ve been doing a miserable job with keeping BICP to a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule for a while now.
So it’s time to make this official. BICP is going to start posting at a rate of two pages a week…intentionally.
Look forward to new pages on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Thank you for your understanding!
We’re taking an unexpected sick day. Maybe two. Please bear with us.
(The Onion’s “Report: Today The Day They Find Out You’re A Fraud” seems kind of cruelly pointed now…)
(But seriously, nobody panic, I’m already feeling better than I was over the weekend. And half the problem is that I have to use a chunk of my time on a paying job, which isn’t really a problem so much as it is a silver cloud with a grey lining.)
Today’s page has been delayed due to inclement weather. Please stand by.
In the meantime, check out PAPERCLIP, a piece of fanfiction about the Nazi project that killed the Mouse. (Depictions of violence, character death.)
Today’s page will be late because your artist is (again, at last!) employed at something that will pay the bills, and has to rush off to make the commute. Enjoy some holiday art and feelings of goodwill in the meantime.
