Lent Lament

Haven’t drawn a comic in a while! I didn’t even approach this as I usually do these comics, I just fit some boxes around some sketches – which is why it looks a bit different.

I’ve made no official announcement before regarding this comic, but I think its days of being a thrice-weekly thing are over. I’ve got other projects on the drawing board (so to speak) and I feel I’ve done all I can with Elwood as a series. This was my first comic and I’ve learned a lot from doing it, but there are plenty of things that I see with my more experienced eyes as just not working as well as they could, and I’ve reached a point where I really want to start from the ground up with something new. I still love the characters in Elwood and appreciate having them as an outlet, so don’t be surprised to see the odd strip like this turns up here or on my blog from time to time.¬†And if I ever come up with a good direction to take it, who knows? It might return. But for now, my biggest thank you to everyone who’s read and supported the comic over the years, and I hope you’ll follow my blog/website to see what I come up with next.

Mark out.

    Nice shading. Shame it’s rare a new comic is out now. I’m sure sometime you’ll get inspiration again to draw more. I hope…

    No worries at all Mark! Loved the series when it was in its prime, but I’ve been expecting this sort of announcement for a long time, so it’s no surprise. I’ll eagerly await your other projects, which judging on some of the videos you’ve posted on here every now and again will be just as good or better than Elwood!
