I am taking a break from Slightly Damned pages in September! And maybe October. I'm not sure yet. Anyway, there will definitely not be any new vote incentives or page updates in September! (The comic will update normally throughout August. The last page before the break is #835.)
"Oh, have a nice vacation!"
I'm not going on vacation! I'm simply not going to work on Slightly Damned pages or vote incentives for a month or two. Instead, I'm going to do any combination of the following: working on The Junk Hyenas Diner, The Legend of Buwaro: Soprano of Time, my 151 Pokemon challenge, new Kickstarter campaign to reprint Slightly Damned books, fixing up outdated parts of the Slightly Damned website. I'll also be helping some close friends of mine with moving.
I'm not sure how much I can actually get done in a month or two since I intend to fulfill every Patreon reward EXCEPT specifically Slightly Damned comic pages and vote incentives. I just know that I'm going to keep busy! So it's not a vacation! And I'm not going anywhere, so you can keep up with what I'm doing on all my usual social media sites.
"But I only support you on Patreon because I want Slightly Damned comics! I'm removing my pledge!"
Hey, that's perfectly understandable and you don't have to justify your decision to me. This and any other time, I welcome you to adjust or remove your pledge anytime you want. But in my defense, my Patreon is for supporting ME, and all my projects; not just Slightly Damned. But FYI: pledging just $1 to an artist's Patreon is a huge help emotionally as well as financially-- it affects the way that fees are calculated and deducted. Instead of removing your pledge entirely, why not just reduce it to $1 for a while?
"So... do you want guest comics/art?"
YES! I would love guest comics and art to put up each Saturday that I'm "off" of making SD comics!
If you would like your guest comic or art to be featured here, please email it to chu [at] raizap.com! Please include your art, your preferred name and pronoun, and a link back to your website/art account/other work!
If you send it any other way, I can't guarantee that I'll be able to keep track of it (since I manage a lot of different accounts). Also, depending on how many I receive, I can't guarantee that all of them will be featured. Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but... either way, I'll share what I get the best I can.
EDIT: I've got enough guest art to tide me over until I start updating again in November. Thank you all for your contributions!
Thank you all for your patience and support!
