Today’s Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan update is the first one ever that I made while on vacation. I’m staying with Aggie in Tennessee for two months, and that’s too long to go without updates, so I’m making them here. I’ve got a little workspace in her studio now where I can put my laptop, external drives and Wacom tablet and my papers to draw on. I’m also trying to set aside a few hours every day to work on whatever needs doing for my websites. Later during my stay, I will have things set up so I can telecommute to my day job back in NL, though to do that for any length of time, I will need to start getting a visa before I next come back here. For now, though, I’m just trying to cultivate the working habits I will need. What with this update getting done during the week and more being scripted now, I’m off to a good start.
Of course, it doesn’t help that I’ve caught another cold, just like back in March. I think getting exposed to the local germs is doing it, because both times, the cold started at around day 4 of my stay. Luckily, during an eight-week stay, that won’t be as bad as catching a cold around day 4 of a week-long stay.
Anyway, the upshot of all this is that for the time being, I am finally in a good position to deliver more frequent updates. I’m going to shoot for two a week for a while – this cold that I’ve got won’t stop me because I will just stay in more for a couple of days. The outlook for the comic has got a lot better, and so has the look of the comic itself: I’m drawing it on larger paper to give myself some more space and I’m very happy with the results.
