The 8 or 10 of you who read this production log have no doubt been wondering, “Where has Chris been lately? Has he fallen ill? Joined the Army? Gone to prison? Has he killed again?! Oh, dear. We should have kept a closer eye on him!”
It’s a funny thing, life. The last post I made here was about how I burned out on comic strips at the age of 23, and have never looked back.

Long story short, I’ve been experimenting with something new.
