NEW COMIC! WOOHOO!
Hey gang, so I got back from my trip to NYC on Monday. It was a fantastic two weeks of Broadway shows, shopping, going to see the sights, and even getting on a Helicopter tour of New York! And best of all, I got to hang out with two of my closest friends, one of who current lives in Australia and really have a chance to reconnect with him! It was just what I’ve been needing and I can’t tell you how happy this trip made me. Also, I got to enjoy the holidays with my family, and got to take my nephew to his very first trip to Disneyland (Well, technically it was California Adventure, but he got to see Carsland, so it’s all good).
Anyways, sorry about not having an update yet. As I was away for two weeks, a lot of stuff hit me upon my return, biggest of which being work. I’ve had to seriously pick up some new shifts to make up for the trip and also paying rent on the first of this month. I’m kinda broke-ish right now. Also, I had to do some recovering from my trip. Vacation are fun, but when you try to pack in as much as you can into every day of them to make sure you’re having the maximum fun, it kinda takes a lot out of you. Add to that hanging out with a two year old nephew… Well, you see where I’m going with this.
So yeah, now I’m back, and trying to get back into a proper routine (if such a thing exists). On Monday expect a new comic, in which we’ll be getting close to wrapping up the Halloween storyline (Yeah, that’s still going…)
Thanks for being patient gang! And once again, I want to say thank you to Rachael & Josh Anderson of Worsted For Wear, Jeffrey Jones of Down & Out, and Jason Brewer for their fantastic guest strips that they did for a majority of my trip! I can’t tell you how grateful I am to them, and you all should seriously check out their work!
So towards the end of this month November 18-Dec 1, I’m going to be traveling out to New York with a friend of mine visiting from Australia. Considering all the stuff we wanna do while he’s here, I’m not really expecting to have a lot of free time to get work done of the comic during that time. As such, I think it’s time to put a call out for Guest Strips for LiC for those two weeks.
Here are the restrictions/requirements for guest strip submissions:
- 980 px wide 72 dpi file (preferably JPG or PNG).
- Must be turned in by November 15th to firstname.lastname@example.org with “GUEST STRIP” in the subject!
- Include your name the way you’d like it to be credited.
- Include the name of your comic or website (if you have one) and the Proper URL.
There are no particular themes for submission. You can use any characters. Also make sure the subject material doesn’t go too far into dark territory. This is a slice of life webcomic, not the sequel to Caligula.
The TOP 4 of them will be featured on the site (assuming we get more than 4 submissions). I will try to share all other submissions at some point after my return from NYC.
Any questions, please feel free to ask. I look forward to your submissions.
EDIT: Good news is that we’ve gotten a couple of REALLY, REALLY AMAZING guest comics to help me out during my trip to NYC! Woohoo!
But I could still use a couple more guest strips to help cover my second week absent. So with that in mind, I’m extending the submission deadline to NOVEMBER 24. If you or someone you know is still interested in submitting a strip, you now have an extra week to do so.
Okay, so as some of you may notice, I have been posting two comics per week, but the schedule for them hasn’t exactly been Monday and Friday per say… Well, as some of you know, my current work schedule as a waiter (to help pay my bills) doesn’t really have a sense of consistency about it. I’m basically scheduled when they need me to work, varying week per week. This is one of the big reasons why the update schedule has been a bit wonky.
So, I just wanted to let you know, the plan remains two updates per week, and with the aim at being on Monday’s and Fridays. But if there is a delay, you know why.
