What's happened

Journal Entry: Tue May 21, 2013, 10:12 PM
So, I continually get comments asking me what happened, if I dropped the comic, etc, so I thought I'd put a little note up here to put everyone at ease.

1) The comic isn't dead, it's just on hiatus

2) It's on hiatus because I went to University and have no time to work on that and a full time job.

So, basically what happened is I tried, tried, tried my hardest to finish the first comic before I ran out of money, but sadly that did not happen.  I am terribly slow at making comics and it took me almost 40 hours per page to draw.  Due to some personal/medical things with my family, both my husband and I ended up without a job for two years and ate away my savings while I tried to work for pets sites and such drawing, which didn't even cover a fraction of my bills.  Finally, Shai and I both got the opportunity to go to a nice university on the cheap (yay student aid) and got a job that would pay my way because of it.  So, I'm about 2 years in already.  After everything I'm working on (job and school), which includes a novel of my story written in my spare time, I will hopefully be able to resume the comic.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

<3 Akeli

It kills me that it's been 4 years since your last update. I hope University is well and that maybe you could pick this back up. I'm sure Patreon will help with funds because artists always back each other.
