Today is the 2 year anniversary of “The Experiment.“ I announced it about a week after losing my last “real job” and have been professionally unemployed for the last 24 months. If you were to ask how I’ve made it this long I would hardly be able to supply an answer. I really don’t know. All I do know is that whatever weird little miracle I have accomplished is almost entirely due to the Fancy Bastards that have supported me through this ridiculous nonsense of an amazing career.
If you are fairly new to HE and The Experiment and would like to show your support, please consider getting a book or shirt in the store or making a donation.
This anniversary seems like it should be special, but I know today is no different than any other day in the last 2 years. I have to make comics, answer emails and figure out how to sell some stuff so I can do it all again tomorrow. That’s the prize actually. The fact that I’m not working towards an impossible goal, but rather getting to live each day inside the impossibility.
There’s so much I want to do with HijiNKS ENSUE. So many half started projects, and aborted attempts at creativity. I feel like I owe it to you all for supporting me for this long to give you as much potential enjoyment as possible but there are only so many hours in the week and I am [sadly] still just one guy. I’ve made podcasts, and videos and various other distractions, but I don’t want to lose sight of the reason you’re reading this: the comic.
That’s why, starting next week, I am going to produce HijiNKS ENSUE 4 times a week. Ideally it would be Mon-Thurs but you and I both know I am terrible at keeping a regular schedule. Inspiration hits me at odd times and I have always been a creature of procrastination. Still, I want to give more to those of you that have given me so much. So how about an extra 30-45 seconds of LOL’s in a given week? Sounds like a fair deal to me.
Thanks again for giving me the life I’ve always dreamed of.
