Hence why there was no update for you guys. So very sorry about that! I was able to finally update the comic late on Monday Afternoon. I will be working on the next for Wednesdays post, but I might have a short filler on Friday as I have been busy. Well, even more busy....
For the first time in a long time, I'm getting nervous about Thanksgiving. Not because I have to visit family, but because I'm worried I'll sell out again of the badge sets I'm making.

So by now, I have all sorts of badge sets in various stages all in random locations in the house. SORRY DAVE.

I'm hoping I can keep enough in stock to take a break around January to make new products, and gear up for the year's conventions. While I may not want to survive on making cosplay props such as these (I'd rather survive on the 2-D art, but one step at a time, no?), they're still sort of fun to make, even if my arm dies from them now and again. What can I say, I like making people happy!

Anyway, I'm just leaving this post here to let people know I'm probably going to be busy over the weekend making sure I can fill orders and the like. I will apologize ahead of time, as I am unable to offer any "special deals" this year around. Firstly, I'm not sure exactly how to do that in the store, and secondly, I don't know what kind of "extras" people might like.
|Empty boxes and pinbacks!|
I had contemplated making some pins to pack in there, but I just plain ran out of time. Had I not been a corpse, I might have been able to get away with it.

Okay, I got friends to cut all the little slits, but that's cause I destroyed my arm when I did it myself.
I am also contemplating opening up "Emergency Christmas Sketch Card Commissions", but I want to knock a couple of outstanding commissions before I open that up (and I can get examples ready).
ANY suggestions are welcome. I like to make things people want to see. Yanno, for those times when I'm not working on Sky's End, Tangerine Wings, Alley Dwellers or any other random projects I have in my list. I like to keep busy!
WHEW. Okay. Back to the office to work more. I have outlining I need to finish! :)
