It’s 2016 and that means the inevitable march of time has, inevitably, marched on. Happy New Year everybody!

Despite the rather dark nature of today’s comic, things have actually been going very well for me and I Hope you’ve all had a lovely holiday season and a great start to your year as well!

I apologize, as always, for the comic drought here on the site. There has been an awful lot going on in my life over these last few months (and the last couple of years, really) and it’s been rather difficult to write while that’s happening. Most of it has involved very positive changes in my personal life which, if you’ve been following the site for a while, you can probably figure out what it relates to. I’ll probably try to work some of those experiences into comics down the road for those of you that don’t. There’s also been some really fun stuff in my professional life happening as well!

If you weren’t aware, I’ve been doing work for Boom studios off and on for a while. They’re a great company and they handle a lot of the comics for various IP’s such as Adventure Time, Clarence, and the like. I’m an interior artist for the Munchkin comic now (based on the game of the same name) and that’s been a really fun experience! I’ve only done a couple of short comics for them so far and one of them is out in stores now (in issue #10) if you’re interested in that sort of thing. I’m not sure when the next one will be out but I’ll definitely post about it either here or on Twitter when I know. I’ve also done a short comic for Clarence that I wrote and illustrated for Rest Stops #1 which is in stores now! I’ve also been doing some cool covers for different comics here and there and I think they’ll be pretty obvious to anyone that knows my art if you’re browsing around comic book stores.

Anyway, this is just a short post to let everyone know I’m alive and that I am still doing comics and still working on Happle Tea. I’ve been writing a lot more lately and things are settling down in my brain a bit so hopefully I’ll be able to get back to updating the site more regularly.

Happy New Year!

…also is it just me or has it been a very long time since we saw Cat God?
