Hullo everyone! Hope everyone’s ready to start the week right! Because I sure as hell ain’t, so somebody’s gotta pick up the slack somewhere 😛

Couple of things you might notice: Firstly, I’ve installed a little Twitter widget on the left there, so if you’re not on Twitter you can still keep up with my twittery escapades. It’s worth following me, as I tweet almost every day, and I’m uploading warmups to Twitter that you might not see here (at least, not until I need an emergency Extra page, anyway!). Plus, little snippets of what I’m working on, and my general thoughts on the state of the world (Hint: Hell In A Handbasket). I’d love to hear from you all on Twitter as well!

Second, you might notice that the backgrounds of the comic are going to become simultaneously more and less detailed – I’m studying the work of Brandon Graham (@RoyalBoiler), specifically that contained in his acclaimed work Multiple Warheads. I’ve long admired his ability to imbue his universes with an intense sense of character, while keeping the lines clear and the framing uncluttered. It’s an approach I specifically want to take for a future project, but also believe will benefit all my artwork. So you might have to put up with a brief period of experimentation, but hey – variety is the spice of life, non?

Anyway, you guys have a grrrreat week! And don’t forget to get in touch if you can, I’d love to hear from you all! (On Twitter – more stalky ways will be responded to with crying and general begging from my life.)
