Wow, so it's been 2 months since I went on haitus.
It's been pretty nice actually taking a break, and I'm finally getting back to the stage where I want to work on SotI again. There won't be any strips for a few weeks yet; I want to build up a backlog of episodes so I'm not drawing a strip and then posting it straight away, because I think that's why I burned out.
Expect some new stuff towards the end of next month.
Taking a break
Sunday 10th February 2013
This year, in June, I will have been creating SotI strips for 5 years. Five years; that seems pretty crazy when I think about it. I started drawing Severus and co as a personal joke for my friends and I when we were playing our first Dark Heresy game and it was only when I posted them on Deviantart and other people said I should do more of them that the idea of making them a webcomic series occured to me.
I didn't think it'd last more than a dozen strips, as opposed to over 180.
I've always said to myself that I'd keep drawing SotI for as long as it was fun for me to do so. I don't get any money from this site; I don't advertise or get revenue in any other way from it so this has never been about profit, just personal enjoyment.
However, over the last few weeks the strip has become somewhat of a chore. I have the next few strips roughed out; they just need turning into finished items, but whenever I sit down to do so I loose all enthusiasm.
I'm not ending SotI; far from it. I want to keep going and reach the end I have planned for Severus, Krin and co (I've known how the comic will end from the very first strip in fact) but I'm going to reduce the pace of my updates. I'll work on the strip when I feel like it, and hopefully in a while I'll get back into a steady rhythm.
In the meantime, thanks for all your continued support. I really enjoy all the emails I get from you guys.
If anyone wants to send in any guest strips to fill in while I'm on low ebb, I'll post them up!

There will be a slight delay with the next strip as I've been spending my time writing plot notes for the LARP game I will be helping to run in March this week.
I'm aiming to get the strip up around midweek.
