I’ll admit it. I’ve been waiting all chapter to do this gag. I’m calling it the Reverse Kent.
So I’ve been going back and fourth on the best way to go about giving Starcrossed a hefty dose of fiber to get it back to regular-ville for a while now. I think I am going to have it update every Thursday. It seems to work best for my work schedule and I really want to see it updating frequently again. There, however, will not be one for this week because I’ve been crazy-sick from allergies. I spent Monday in an antihistamine-induced coma and the following days have been a bit groggy.
For proof that I am, indeed, working on the new page, here’s a pic of the work in progress:

I’m going to attempt to have Starcrossed back on a regular weekly schedule again. It didn’t happen this week because something sorta sudden came up and I had to spend the last few days moving. I’ll start updating again when I get settled in.
Starcrossed is officially back up! Not that it was ever down but I can make posts again! Yay!
To all of my readers, I would like to thank you so much for bearing with me. I apologize for the unintentionally long hiatus. I had some problems with the PHP memory limit on my former server that I was never able to get resolved. It kept me from being able to make posts (except comments, oddly enough) and I couldn’t edit anything in Comicpress. So now I have a new host and registered my own domain, which is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.
I’m currently working on a new page which will be up soon. As far as a set schedule, it depends on how things play out. I have a full time job and some other things that are also keeping me busy. That being said, I do plan on updating as frequently as I can. I promise I won’t go away for months on end without announcing a hiatus first (unless, you know, I can’t post on my site again ).
So for those of you who have stuck around, thank you. A new page will be up soon.
In the meantime if you’re on Tumblr, I’m always looking for new people on there. I also post a lot of other artwork on there including work in progress shots and various sketches. Feel free to check it out here!
So I’m thinking of giving away the watercolor comic pages as donation incentives (starting with page 19 of chapter 3). Would this be something people are interested in? Unless there’s a page I’m particularly attached to, I’d rather send them to others to enjoy than just stash them away on a shelf in my basement. It would probably be a fairly high price (I was think $50 gets you the pick of whatever page is available). They’re 10″ x 16″ and I would ship them in a poster tube.
Also I’m looking for ideas for smaller donation incentives (like $5 or $10 USD). Sketch cards, maybe? Small prints?

Hey, Everyone! I am posting to inform you as to the status of the next page of the comic. I will be moving to updating Tuesdays.
Currently I am working as a pizza delivery driver until the start of the school year at which time I intend to get back into substitute teaching. I live in the Midwest where temperatures have been over 100 degrees for the past couple of weeks and my car does not have air conditioning. When I am not making deliveries, I tend the oven at the store. Getting out in the heat to make deliveries is the cooler option, really. The shifts are short, but the heat has been taking a LOT out of me recently. I haven’t been working on comic pages, or anything really. It’s all I can do to water my plants after work.
I’m off Sundays and Mondays, so I plan to use those days to recuperate and draw the new page in that time.
Also, don’t hold me to this but when I get back into teaching and have the energy, I want to try to bump my updates to twice a week. I must be weird, but the watercolors are actually quicker than coloring digitally. Go figure.
I haven’t updated in the past two weeks because I’ve been dealing with the fact that I just ended my relationship of over six years with my significant other. Things are okay, we’re still friends, I even started dating again (which is really weird). I hate to say I skipped updates because I wasn’t in the mood, but there you go. I consoled myself by buying hooker-red lip gloss so things are okay now.
So yeah. Expect a new page on Tuesday!
