Hello, everyone! I hope you all are doing as well as you can be in these harrowing times. As you are already aware, pretty much all conventions have been cancelled or postponed until at least 2021 due to covid-19. That means I've lost anywhere from one third to one half of my total income for the year, if not longer. Thankfully I am lucky to be in a stable living situation with my close friends, so I'm currently in no danger of starving or being evicted. Still, losing that much money is a huge bummer, and it means keeping up with bills is a bit harder than usual. Plus, with how inconsiderate my fellow Americans are being about staying away from crowds and wearing masks, who knows how long this mess will last?

Although I'm not in an emergency situation, I would appreciate your help if you like my work. Patreon (http://patreon.com/raizap) is my primary source of income, and even a small amount each month helps out a lot! Even just $2/month can help me with transaction fees and taxes. There are lots of exclusive goodies that you can unlock by being a patron, from being able to suggest ideas for and download exclusive wallpapers, to seeing comic pages a week in advance!

If a subscription isn't your style, then please consider buying some merchandise from me. You can get Slightly Damned books and prints from my Hivemill store (https://hivemill.com/collections/slightly-damned)! I also sell Slightly Damned plushies and lots of cute animal-themed t-shirts, stickers, lanyards, enamel pins, and more on my Storenvy (http://chu.storenvy.com)!

And if you don't care for subscriptions, and aren't interested in buying any wares at the moment, I do occasionally open up for commissions. Openings are announced through my art sites and social media, so keep an eye out! And, hey, if you would just like to give me money, I wouldn't say no to a tip or two at this crucial time: https://www.paypal.me/sdamned

By the way, I am currently making preparations to launch a Kickstarter for the reprinting of Slightly Damned: Book Two! It will be very similar to the 2018 campaign to reprint Book One. I don't have a concrete launch date for it yet, as I am a bit behind on my work, but I am hoping it will happen sometime around late summer to early fall.

If money is tight right now, like it is for millions of people, but you'd still like to support me, don't underestimate the power of word of mouth! I'm just one small creator doing their best to work on their passion project. It's easy for me to be overlooked in an endless sea of entertainment and social media fighting for people's attention. Even if all you do is tell one friend that Slightly Damned's archive is worth reading, that can be a huge help! And not just because I get ad revenue from readers visiting the site... it's also because I've put a lot of time and effort into making this story, and it means a lot to me. That one suggestion might ripple out across friend circles to make a big change in someone's life. Besides, who couldn't use a bit of escapism into a fantasy world about animes--I mean Angels-- and furries--I mean Demons-- these days?

I am fortunate enough to be able to keep doing what I'm doing thanks only to the support I receive through the people who enjoy my art. Comic updates and artwork for me will continue as long as my life and mental health remain stable enough.

Remember: Black Lives Matter, Trans Rights are Human Rights, wash your hands, stay at home if you can, and wear a mask if you can't. I wish you all the best, and I hope that we can all get through this together!

Thanks to the support of readers like you, Slightly Damned has been nominated for an Ursa Major Award for "Best Graphic Story"! It's not over yet, though, as in order to win, Slightly Damned needs to get more votes than the other nominees. The competition is fierce this year, and I'm also ready happy just to be nominated, but... you know what they way: you gotta dream big!
Voting is free and easy. Just go to https://ursamajorawards.org/voting2019/ and follow the instructions. Thank you very much!

Hello, y'all! I just want to say that because I will be very busy in February, I have chosen not to update Slightly Damned during this month. The last page you'll see will be page 900 until updates resume in March. Thank you for your patience and understanding! I think I will try to spend time in March making a buffer of Slightly Damned pages so these interruptions are less frequent.

Speaking of March, Slightly Damned's 15th anniversary will be on March 14th. Time flies, huh? I don't have anything special to celebrate in mind, but if you have a suggestion for something you'd like to see me do or make, I'm willing to listen. Leave a comment or see what other people have said on this Patreon post if you're interested: https://www.patreon.com/posts/24300624


Thank you for all the support you've given me over the years. I wouldn't have made it this far without your help!

The Slightly Damned books have arrived at the Hiveworks warehouse, meaning everything will start being shipped out shortly! Please make sure that your address in your surveys is up-to-date and accurate before 1/20!

P.S. I will be vending at Further Confusion in San Jose, CA this weekend! Unfortunately, I don't have any Slightly Damned books with me, but I do have enamel pins and plushies (including Sakido and Iratu)! I will also have copies of The Junk Hyenas Diner as well as animal stickers, pins, and t-shirts. Plus, I'll be offering my usual same day badge commissions. Hope to see you there!

Sorry, but Slightly Damned is on a teensy weeny break. I got sick twice this month with two different illnesses, so I lost a lot of work time and am a bit behind. I need some extra time to get things in order.

From 11/30 through 12/2 I'll be selling my wares at Midwest Fur Fest in Rosemont, Illinois!

On 12/8, a guest comic by Nick Daniel will be posted! He's my friend and the creator of one of my favorite webcomics, Latchkey Kingdom! Also, my other webcomic, The Junk Hyenas Diner, will FINALLY get a 5-page update to conclude the chapter "I Scream Cake!"

On 12/15, Slightly Damned will resume updates as normal. Thank you for understanding! Life is often difficult and unpredictable.

P.S. If you backed the Slightly Damned: Book One Kickstarter back in August, the PDF of the eBook is now available! Check your inboxes or this update for the download link! The book has been sent off to the printer and the merchandise for rewards are being bought this week. We are still on track for physical rewards being delivered in January 2019!

After a year of preparation, my second Kickstarter is now live! This campaign is focused on finally printing physical copies of Slightly Damned!! Please check it out, share, and support it!

I've applied to Midwest Fur Fest, Furry Weekend Atlanta, and Further Confusion. I'm also debating on whether or not to renew my table for Phoenix Comic Con/Fan Fest/Fan Fusion. More info as it comes!

I just wanted to get the word out to as many people as possible that I've significantly changed my Patreon rewards! I'm risking losing some of my income for the chance to give my other, non-Slightly Damned projects more love. You can read more about what the changes are and why I made them in this post: https://www.patreon.com/posts/important-tier-17734940

Slightly Damned will continue to update normally, with one new page every Saturday. Soprano of Time will eventually return as weekly vote incentives until the story concludes, and then regular vote incentives will come back. There will also be 2 monthly wallpapers instead of just 1, with at least one of those being Slightly Damned-related. Art Wednesday illustrations are being discontinued, at least temporarily.

Thanks as always for your patience and support!
