@WindowMaker Thank you so so much! I honestly thought no one would care or notice that it came back :) It means so much to me!
I had a hard time keeping up with posting due to my health. It turns out I've had a chronic brain infection (well it's actually in all my organs but the worst is that the encephalitis caused lasting brain damage). I didn't think I could qualify for disability so young, but thankfully I was approved, which allowed me to leave my job.
Off work I'm much more stable. I'm still searching for effective treatment (it took 7 years and some cutting-edge technology at UC San Francisco to even pinpoint what virus it was).
I still drew pages off an on over the hiatus but didn't post because I couldn't deliver on a consistent basis, and I wasn't sure if anyone was still interested (I'm also guilty of being a lurker and not commenting, but as the artist I really wish people would comment. I'm trying to be more proactive about commenting on works I like).
The other thing that changed is I have an ipadpro (so from page 130 onwards the quality will improve), which allows me to work 4 times faster than just with pen and paper. I am drawing 2 pages a week, so I can definitely deliver 1 page a week even on weeks when I have a lot of doctor appointments.
I really love drawing the comic and my goal is to complete it.
Thank you so much for reading (and yeah, I'm sure everyone will need to re-read now because it's been so long no one remembers what's happening haha)
