Finally! I've started working on The Legend of Buwaro: Soprano of Time again. You can read the entire archive of comic strips, in addition to the two entirely brand-new strips, right here:

And finally! The Slightly Damned store has been re-opened. It's now an integrated part of my Storenvy shop, which is for ALL of my stuff. You can find it here:

P.S. I also was tagged by a friend to answer questions about my writing process for comics. If that interests you at all, you can check it out on my tumblr here:
One of my projects this summer will be to clean up the Slightly Damned website and my homepage, You may have noticed that some of the options on the menu bar have disappeared. That's because I decided to clear off links to outdated art and dead or dying projects. I still have more work to do (like updating the art on the Race and World History pages to match the art on the Cast page), but I'm going to leave that until after Phoenix Comic Con.
Hey, all. I've got a lot of important stuff to say, and most of it is not happy. Remember last time when I posted and asked for two weeks off of Slightly Damned? I need more time off. I feel like such a jerk, but I just don't think I can update SD properly this month. I've got way too much on my plate.

Here's the story: the family emergency was that my grandmother was terminally ill. With my dad's help I was able to take a flight on very short notice to fly from Vermont to California to see her in the hospital. There was a chance I wasn't going to make it in time to see her, but she held in there for me. I spent as much time with her as possible, and I even spent a couple nights in her hospital rooms. But eventually I had to leave her and say my final good-byes. It was extremely difficult for my whole family because she was so close to us. We all lived in the same household and she raised me and my older brothers like a third parent. But I was obligated to go to MoCCA and our family didn't know how long she would still be around...

So I came back to Vermont, and then the next day my friends and I drove to New York City to attend MoCCA Fest. And it was a great convention! I didn't sell much, but the best things about it were getting to meet old and current readers of the comic, meeting old and new friends, trading minicomics, and seeing the city itself. Unfortunately I heard that I missed a dedicated superfan who was nice enough to buy books, but... perhaps next time, friend! Sorry we missed each other! And thanks to all the awesome people I got to talk to at the convention. I feel like the experience rekindled my creative spirit a bit, since I've been in a bad place for a while now.

But... the night the convention ended (yesterday), I heard from my mom that my grandmother passed away. It breaks my heart to know that she's gone forever, but I'm glad I got to say good-bye.

Because of all that, and due to the heavy emotional toll this is taking, I'm really behind on work. My final project in school is to make a 16~24 page comic by May 2, and I've barely started. Plus I'm under contract for an internship, which is taking a long time. Unfortunately, that means Slightly Damned is the lowest priority project this month, so I have to put it on temporary hiatus. I guess the good news is that you'll be getting a 16~24 page minicomic about Lucky and Guff soon?

You have my sincerest apologies. I wish I was responsible enough to have a buffer... but I wasn't. It pains me to have to flake on Slightly Damned again, but I feel I have no other choice right now. I'd rather not update than force myself to make crappy updates due to exhaustion and stress.

But! I have a long summer vacation to look forward to that stretches from May through August. During that time I plan to finish The Legend of Buwaro: Soprano of Time, put together Book Three, create a Patreon account with monthly rewards, and maybe do some double updates! I might even take commissions at some point. I also have some leftover books, plushies, and buttons from the convention that I would like to sell online. I'll be updating the site with information about how to buy those soon.

Lastly-- and I know this is a lot to ask, since I'm already begging for your understanding-- but Slightly Damned was nominated for two awards in the 2013 Ursa Major Awards. If you sincerely enjoy the comic and honestly think it deserves to win, please take the time to vote for it and your favorites in each category. I would really appreciate it, and it might help new readers discover Slightly Damned.

Thank you for being so understanding.

Special thanks to Erin for giving me this lovely piece of art at MoCCA! It really cheered me up and I wanted to share it with everyone.

And thank you, Mamang, for always taking care of me.
Sorry to be a total flake who still can't get a grip on buffers after all these years, but I don't think I'll be able to handle updating Slightly Damned for the next two weeks.

Life's been rough lately, and now there's been a family emergency. Without going into too much detail, my grandma's already poor health suddenly took a sharp turn for the worse and I have to fly back to California to be with my family. Then I am going to New York City for the MoCCA Arts Fest to table with my classmates. Then there's the projects I have to do for school...

Again, deepest apologies for being so unreliable lately. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

P.S. Thanks to your support, Slightly Damned won two nominations in the 2013 Ursa Major Awards. I'd really appreciate it if you took the time to honestly vote for all your favorites in each category.
I just wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has ever supported Slightly Damned in all my years of making it. I've made a lot of mistakes along the way and I still have a lot to learn. I know the comic is far from perfect and my lack of ability is frustrating, but I've always tried to do my best. Thanks for encouraging me and giving me the chance to keep doing what I love.
Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I hit a snag in my work. Long story short, my computer's power jack broke last weekend and now it no longer gets power from being plugged in. I effectively lost the ability to use my most important tool. It's a huge bummer but I'll work through it. I'll do my best to get two pages up by the end of the weekend!
Hi dudes! I'm sorry that I've been kinda flaky lately. These last few months have been madness.

- The Ursa Major Award nominations END TODAY! Please, if you like Slightly Damned, nominate it for "Best Graphic Story" and "Best Other Literary Work"! It would be a great honor and would help new readers find the comic.

- I will be attending the MoCCA Arts Festival with a table in Manhattan, New York, on April 5th & 6th! I plan to bring books, zines, plushies, postcards and new button designs. It'll be my first east coast convention as an exhibitor. See you east coast folks there!

- Don't forget that I've been uploading my non-Slightly Damned comics to my main site at! That page really needs an upgrade, I know, but I hope you like the comics anyway.

- Upcoming commissions?: I don't know when I'll be able to take more, but I'll keep you guys posted. I might change the rules a bit with the next batch because while I really appreciated the support from everyone, I'm struggling to balance my responsibilities in a timely manner.

- I am now updating my account on Weasyl:! I actually like it a lot. If you prefer to watch me there, I will be updating all the same material there!
