Looks like the sun is setting…
Fun fact: panels six through ten were actually sketched by Cervelet, the artist of Addictive Science! We got in a race to see who could get the poses done first, and he absolutely destroyed me even though I had a head start. He technically also sketched the last panel, but his take on the pose didn’t quite match my vision. Here’s his sketches!
Things are going pretty slow right now, art-wise. The only time I can work on art without constant interruptions is late at night, when I should be sleeping. Ever since my kids got out of school for summer, I’ve been choosing art over sleep half the time. It’s having a pretty bad effect on my creative drive, making me feel like my usual comics are a tedious chore that requires more focus than I can give.
I do not want to suffer total artistic burnout. I do not want to grow bitter towards my work. So here’s my plan.
Debunkers will go on hiatus until my kids are back in school. Therefore, updates will resume in early September. In the meantime, I will be trying some new things: painting with acrylics, and making hats! I’ll be posting photos, so you won’t go completely without updates from me for the month of August.
I am pausing Patreon billing for a month. Partially because it wouldn’t be fair to you to be paying while I’m not updating much. Partially because I don’t think I can handle adding any additional sketches to my to-do list.
Debunkers has a new Ask blog on Tumblr, where you can send questions to Nixie and Avi! I will be responding to questions with drawings and in-character writing. Feel free to message the cast about anything, be it paranormal or personal! There’s lots of fun to be had!
