Exciting things are on the way! What things, you may ask? Nothing, that’s what. I think that’s kind of exciting on an existential level.
Oh, also I started drawing a Jewish humor comic called Chutzpah! Now I don’t have to post those jokes here, so Turbo Sloth is now more shiksa-friendly. Chutzpah updates Tuesdays and Thursdays, meaning I somehow tricked myself into drawing 5 days a week again. Yay?
Okay I don’t actually have T-shirts. But I am back, and have working internet after moving to the beautiful, exciting town of Hartford, CT for my internship. I had a long, maddening correspondence with Comcast, but if it wasn’t that way, I suppose it wouldn’t feel like an authentic Comcast experience. I think my enraged tweet (Note: “Enraged Tweet” would NOT make a good band name, don’t get any ideas) sums it up pretty nicely.
“I SWEAR TO GOD I’M GOING TO RIP THE EYES OUT OF EVERY COMCAST REP THEN WRAP THEIR OCULAR NERVES AROUND THEIR NUTS & KICK THEM IN THE OCUNUTS”
They told me that I would have to wait another week for internet but I found a way around that, and, well, here I am. So enjoy your regularly scheduled comics and whatnot.
In a few hours, I am leaving for a weeklong service trip to Panama! I’m not sure how updating will be, but I have at least made a feeble attempt to queue up some comics while I’m gone, even though I’ll admit they’re not my best. But hope you enjoy them nonetheless and regular comics/updates will resume Thursday April 25th.
Ah, that’s better.
I’m glad to say that I have been able to turn down the frenetic pace of my comic drawing without the sky falling. Three times a week has been much more manageable and nobody seems to mind much.
My friends’ continued support and some nice visitors from Reddit have helped Turbo Sloth to reach it’s highest traffic totals over the past two months, with an all-time high of over 28,000 visits and 100,000 pageviews this month! That’s about 10X what I had this same time last year, and is extra motivation for me to keep drawing.
That being said, I lost my tablet pen and am waiting for a new one, so the latest batch may be mouse drawn… just like I used to do. Also, I’ll be going to Panama in 2 ½ weeks and will not have a computer… I’ll see if I can get the comics to post themselves or something. And of course I’ll let you know if I am fortunate to see a sloth, whether it’s Turbo or just the regular type.
Y’all may have realized that I am not actually southern and just like pretending I am… spirit of the Holiday I guess (Daylight Savings Time is the farmers’ fault after all)
February was a good month for Turbo Sloth, with the highest monthly total traffic in our 3 year history! Perhaps every day comics helped that, perhaps it was just a coincidence. But you may have noticed there were only THREE comics this week! Like, what the hell?
If I got paid to do this, I could draw a comic every day. But I don’t! And three a week is much more practical for me than one every day, at the end of the day. Sorry! But it was a fun experiment and I’m surprised I was able to keep it consistently running like that for two and a half months! Rock on, beautiful peoples.
P.S. I may be writing this with a hangover so excuse everything I do that you don’t like.
