I haven't forgotten about Jodi's Journey. I promise.
In fact I've been working on it almost non-stop. The
reason for a lack of strips though is simple: I am
unhappy with the look of the comic. I thought it would
just sort of flesh itself out after a few strips and I
would get into a routine. I kind of winged it so to speak.
It's not that I find the art bad, or the stories bad or anything like that. I'm just finding it cumbersome to come up with new stories to work around the limiting artistic style I chose to employ. So as of now I am rethinking the comic and coming up with a new visual style to use. The current style doesn't allow me to fully show what Jodi is like with all her expressions, mannerisms, her very active lifestyle. Instead, I find myself contoring the stories or strips in order to conform to the art, and I think that's entirely the wrong way it should be done.
Anyway, in the meantime, I'm sorry. I don't think it will take long before I've got some more art up, and I won't be lying too much about Friday weely updates then.
