Hi! I’m not dead! Neither is Jailbird! Thank you so much for your concern! Valkyrie (my other comic) and side projects have swallowed up a lot more of my time than I’d anticipated. I’m aiming for January/February and will likely turn the Tumblr into the main site, so you’ll know when it comes back! And it WILL. I promise.
Ashley Davis (who makes the cutest webcomic called Jailbird) is one of the BEST HUMAN BEINGS ON THE PLANET and I love her so much for being so great, so I made her this little gift to give her at SPX as a thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was Jailbird’s first birthday yesterday! Happy birthday, guys!
I apologize for the lack of comics and news. I’m working on 26 more pages of Valkyrie, so Jailbird has to go on the back burner for now.
However, I will be at SPX again this year, and I will have some Jailbird goodies in tow! I’ll tell you more about that later…
Over the past month, I’ve been hard at work on a new comic. And today, my run of Shiftylook’s Legend of Valkyrie series has started! I’m picking up the story where it last left off, so I hope you enjoy the direction I’m taking it!
This is why Jailbird’s been on hiatus for a while! We will be back in July, but in the meantime, enjoy some Valkyrie every Tuesday and Thursday!
Day five! To most people, dyemaking and dyeing aren’t as exciting as most other areas of magic… but not to Osprey.
I’m going to be at TCAF this weekend! I’m not tabling or anything, but you can find me walking around and hanging out! Come say hi and I will give you one of these!
Here’s a SUPER CUTE piece of fan art by Combotron! Thank you so much!! *_*
Hi there, thanks for the message! It’s all too easy to forget that not everyone is viewing the internet at the same speeds you are, and it had never even occurred to me that my image files were too big, and I don’t know a whole lot about optimization (a while back, Chrome started displaying JPGs all weird and artifacty so I’ve just been saving everything as PNG ever since).
Unfortunately, going through and changing all the images will be a huge chore, and one I won’t be able to do for a while. I will see what I can do about future comics though!
EDIT: Actually, I’m probably going to update the back end of the site this weekend, let’s see about doing it then! I’m already in the process of optimizing the files, thanks so much again for bringing it up. I want the comic to be easy to read for everyone!
She is indeed! (And thank you for drawing fan art, I can’t wait to see it!!)
Day four! Owl’s magic specialty is plantomancy, creating a new lifeform out of one or several plants. Most are shaped into animal-like beings or humanoids. The former can occur in nature, so maybe we’ll run into some wild plantimals eventually!
