There are so many things wrong with this comic while at the same time there are a lot of things that I am happy with. For instance, I tried and tried and tried to get Spam’s hands right, got really close on the right hand and finally gave up on the left. I now shudder at the thought of foreshortening. *shudder* I also meant to put some cool lines in the handle of Spam’s sword but I didn’t want to make it too complicated. I mean, I had to keep reminding myself that I was going to have to draw this sword over and over again and those lines in the middle of the sword are going to drive me crazy. But, I am so overwhelmingly happy with Spam’s expression, the tilt of his head and the position of his body. Hooray! Who cares that his left hand is a bit off?

It was hard to come up with names for Spam’s swords. I didn’t want anything too cheesy, or too hard to remember, or even too simple. I ran the idea behind Miro past a couple of people and chose the best name that everyone suggested to me. Thank you to Pinkentity for the name of Spam’s sword!

The next comic that you see here will have three digits! *squee!!!!*

Well, now is as good as a time as ever to post a rant. I promised to explain why I have not been ranting for a while. This do to my new role at work. This year I have taken on a few more responsibilities at work and with those responsibilities comes a lot of prep work. On top of all of the new prep work, I still had to perform all of my old duties as well. This means that I am now doing the work of 2 people. As you can imagine, this becomes stressful and unfortunately, this means that the ranting and sometimes the updating of the site suffers from my stress.

If you wish to yell at me for something that I am missing on this site please email me. You can find my email address on the contact us page.

As you can see, things are starting to calm down a little. *knock on wood* This means that I should find time to rant a little more often. Of course, the last time that I said that, I did not rant for 2 months. I hope that does not happen this time. :)

Have a happy Friday!!
