No Update, But Fun Free Stuff!

I apologize, but there will be no update this week. I was shooting to do a one page update but my brain shut down and I didn’t get as far as I needed to. I’m sorry. Have you ever pushed yourself too hard for a too long and then when you get to the finish line you just crash? That’s what happened to me. I’ve been looking at Baltimore Con as the end of the madness, and apparently so was my brain because this week, even figuring out simple 2 point perspective was stumping me.

But I won’t leave you with nothing! If you haven’t read it yet, the Baltimore Con recap was posted earlier this week, and contains the world’s coolest Cosplay ever!

The Indy Comics Panel I was on at Mid Ohio Con was taped, and released here in seven installments for your watching pleasures!

I did a really fun, almost silly at times, interview for Fantasy magazine!

And Jeff Ritter interviewed me about the graphic novel release at The!

Some other cool news this week: The Dreamer was nominated for the S.P.A.C.E. (Small Press Alternative Comics Expo) award! In both the general and the webcomic categories!

There will be a full update next Friday, and you can VOTE this week for an early preview if you like!

Or, sign up for the Fan Flow where you always get to preview updates early!

Friday is MIKE’S BIRTHDAY!!! So wish him a happy birthday, everyone!!

    Don’t worry about it! Usually I only go to cons for a day, and even then I get all tired and such. So with you going all weekend at a booth and all that twice in a row… I don’t think I can imagine you /not/ being tired! Unless you had some sort of superpower or something, but I somehow doubt that, as much as we all wish for some ;)

    I started reading the interviews… Very cool! I love when The Dreamer gets such good press! XD Next I shall watch that panel…probably while doing homework…lol =P

    I saw the vote incentive! I was like, “….Is…that who I think it is?” And then I remembered I was signed up to Fan Flow (all this essay writing in school, gosh… lol) and I just got all excited! I can definitely be patient enough to see that next week! XD

    Yeah, next week’s update is going to be fun. :) I’ve been looking forward to it for a long time… So I didn’t want to rush to finish something that was crappy, just to get it done.

  3. Madi says:

    Aww… I love the second panel! Alan’s such a cutie…

  4. Erin says:

    See, that’s totally understandable ^__^ By the way, I don’t want to put extra pressure on you, especially since I pretty much just told you to relax lol, but have you sent me info about helping out on the Myspace? I’m worried in case I missed it by accident since I’ve been pretty absent minded this week…ahaha ^^;;

    I hope your brain enjoys the rest. :)

    Happy birthday, Mike! I hope you have a day as happy as you look in that photo.

    Sweet press, all deservedly good and it never gets old. Fanboy Alan in the Voting Incentive is awesome.

    Happy Birthday to Mike!! And many happy returns, bro. I will raise a glass in your honor this weekend. :)

    “My sisters & I always played ‘pretend’ so I was an actress at home, way longer than was socially appropriate. ”

    Hahahaha! ME TOO!! The proof can be found on many hi-8 tapes burried somewhere in the house. – Made my day

    Happy Birthday, Mike!

  10. Get some rest and let your brain recoup. :)

    Happy birthday, Mike!

  11. Caitlin says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE!! and Lora we all understand what its like to just have a complete brain crash so no worries at all about no update. :) I hope that you get some nice recovery time this weekend and upcoming week and to Mike: I hope your birthday is awesome!

  12. Alex says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MIIIKEEEEE…. Yeah. Most excellent. Sweetest picture ever. Never looked so cool.

    And S.P.A.C.E? Aw yeah. I’m probably heading up there again this year because with the class I’m taking the professor always takes us up. It’d be pretty sweet if you got something! Maybe I’ll get to buy some exciting things from you… er, paychecks willing.

  13. Kendle-ken-ken says:

    Have a great brain recuperation Lora! One more reason to look forward to next week!

    May I add that this comic is the reason I’m taking History: United States to 1865 next semester.
