Future Sight

Hey guys. Not dead. Promise.

Maybe this is a thing that happens as you slowly stop being in your mid-20s, but I’m a giant pile of retrospection among a series of rapid changes over the last six months. I’m not at my old job, my old apartment, my old CITY… everything is changing, people are moving on to bigger and better things, people leave your life in other ways… it’s left me contemplative (while I’m pretending I know how to run a business).

During this, I’ve been thinking a lot about the future of the comic. I don’t want to see this die. I don’t want to just up and abandon it, but I am not the same girl I was when I started these stories. College is a much smaller part of my life now than it was as a junior, when this originally started, or as a senior, when this particular incarnation started. I love the community I’ve built up here, and all the people I’ve got to meet and opportunities I’ve had because of it. I had an ending in mind for the strip when I first started it; but as people evolve, so do ideas, and now I’m not sure how fitting that ending is, or when it should even come. I know I don’t wanna Garfield this comic up and drag it on longer than it should go for (and I don’t think I’m quite ready for a blaze of Dadaist glory) but I don’t know where to go from here, either. Let me know what you’d like to see.

In other news, I think I’m gonna go with ChromaCurves as my design business name. I angst over names, so this took… a while. It’s all colors and vectors and curvy and yeah. Thoughts?

Everything artsy for PurpleMentat, a damn awesome Youtube Let’s Player. Check his stuff out.
Foam Brain’s most recent Kickstarter (all the class pins, potion bottles, meeples, baby dragons and Cthulhus, and the two bonus pins)
EDIT: And a bunch of art that I will put up on a new Deviantart or Tumblr or Facebook? (I’ll customize them all tomorrow, it’s way too late right now for me to art properly)
