Long time no post, I know, but I’m happy to say all of issue 2 is up now for everyone to read! I am going to sincerely try to finish issue 3 faster than 2. **shakes fist in determination** Some of you may have noticed I removed a small supplemental material post between issue 1 and 2. This is because as I have been fleshing out the story, I made some decisions that have made that post somewhat inaccurate in terms of details and timeline flow.
Also, just so everyone knows, I had to turn off comments in the past, because I was getting an avalanche of weird robo-mail spam messages. I might try turning them back on to see what happens, but you can always feel free to comment on the aviarycomic facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/AviaryComic or @aviarycomic on twitter!
I hope you enjoy issue 2!
Hi there followers,
I have made a decision to post Aviary in issues. I know I originally decided to do monthly updates, but because of the long form nature of this story I think it is for the best I release it this way. I came to this decision when I was asked recently by a friend, ‘How is the new issue coming?’ This is not the first time someone has asked this, and I realized that a lot people following Aviary think of it as issue based, which is truthfully the way I do as well.
Also, although I do have more pages completed I do not like the place that I would leave off if I were to post them tomorrow, and the stress of trying to complete a certain amount of pages in order to hit places that I consider “good breaking points” is really beginning to stress me out and take some of the fun out of making this book for me.
That all said I am moving along with artwork for issue 2, and I have plans to release it by the end of this year, with issue 3 following in the spring. I hope what lovely readers I have will be willing to wait for the full issues. Aviary is a project of pure joy and self expression outside the confines of my animation day job. It is really important to me that it never becomes stressful or draining. I hope you all understand. Thanks so much for reading, stay tuned for more artwork over the coming weeks and issue 2 this fall.
So, I’m finally getting rolling again! I hope you were all intrigued by the latest update, small though it was. I wanted to let you know that I added a bookmark feature so you can save your place and go right back to the last page you read without having to click through bunches of pages or backwards through nasty spoilers. You’ll see the buttons above the comic. Woo-hoo!
I’m so happy you stopped by to read Aviary. I hope you are enjoying the story so far. If you want the latest info on new posts and pages you can:
