Hooray! It’s up! Sorry for the delay, but I had a very important project that I had to do.
We did ten pages of these in one day. Thankfully the kids didn't riot when she read the book to them.
Now Ky’s preschoolers (hopefully) understand what peace is a little bit better. It’s not such an easy concept to get across.
Also on the mixed blessing newsfront – I’ve got to take next week off from Billy. I know, I know – there’s bound to be some sort of riot. But it must be risked. Turns out I’ve got oodles of work that actually pays money right now, and one of those gigs is an honest to goodness book. Like, with a real publisher and whatnot. BUT, I’ve got about 40 sketches to get done by the 15th. Which is compounded by the fact that my brother is back from Iraq and visiting my hometown pretty much the exact same weekend. Rock and a hard place, you know? I’ll try and make it up to you by posting something in the blog area (below the comic post. I know it’s been a while.) a time or two next week, so check back or look on twitter and facebook.
Lately I’ve actually been picking up a decent number of gigs – more than I’ve ever had. Problem is, as I get more paying work, the time I have for Billy is going to get harder and harder to find. The only way I can take that time back, is for Billy to start bringing in some actual, y’know, money. So I stuck a donate button up in the sidebar. I don’t like it, but after doing this for two and a half years, I figure I’ve earned a respite from my neverending self-imposed rules. So do your thing with the paypal if you’re feeling it. Just like Radiohead, man.
Thing is, that’s only going to go so far. I LOVE Billy. This comic is my life’s work. I mean, I’ve been with these characters since I was nineteen, and they haven’t given up one centimeter of real estate in my imagination since the day I created them. They aren’t going anywhere. But to keep doing it as often as I do now (or more often, if that would ever be possible), I need to get more people to the comic. So if you enjoy this comic, tell somebody. Or, if you know of a website that does webcomic reviews or plugs, tell them about Billy. Cuz’ I need you guys.
Aaaaaanyway, I’ll talk to you guys next week – seriously, check back even the comic is off. I’ll have some fun sketches of the kids up or something in the blog. I’ll need to blow off some steam on some funtime drawings for sure.
Later, and thanks –
