2013 September 25 Page 20 is up, and the hiatus is finally over! Thank you all so much for waiting patiently! I plan to do 7 more pages by the end of the year, so keep checking back!
2013 July 29 This is my public apology to everyone for the unannounced hiatus I've been subjecting you all to. My software finally crashed and burned! It was outdated anyway, so perhaps it was just its time. I am indeed saving up for new software, and in the interim, I'm using the wonderful FireAlpaca to keep my hand moving. It may likely take some more time before new pages go up. Please feel free to keep in touch with the comic on Facebook and let me know what you'd like to see more drawings of in the meantime! Thanks for all your patience.* * *
2013 April 2 With my 19th page of Ishea going up today, I'd like to take a moment to look back at how different this project is now compared to its humble beginnings. It's been just 19 pages, but I've learned more from this undertaking than anything like it I've tried to do in the past. I know I still have a long way to go, but it's nice to see how far I've come since the days of making roleplay posts and writing short chapters in notebooks.* * *
Thanks so much to everyone who has been behind me on all this. This hasn't been easy for me at times, and sometimes I lose focus and confidence, or I'll doubt myself and get discouraged...but this story is for YOU! And I love you. And I hope you can get as much enjoyment out of my little story as I've gotten from writing and drawing it. Your support is invaluable! Thank you all so much!
2013 January 1 Happy New Year! Over the last day, I've finished consolidating 5+ notebooks worth of thoughts, notes, and sketches into a three-page complete Ishea outline. I've now experienced the immense pleasure of writing a bullet point followed by the words 'The End.'* * *
And so, with page 15's layout sketched out before me, I am now ready to announce my New Years Resolution: "Draw 13 pages of Ishea in 2013."
Thank you all so, SO much for all your interest and support and fanarts and shares! This project has been nothing but new territory for me and at times has felt totally disjointed--and there is much more yet before us, I know--but I hope that Ishea will only get more and more interesting, surprising, action-packed, and just plain entertaining with each new page.
Thank you for watching Ishea grow in 2012, and I'll continue to do my best for you all in 2013 as well. I look forward to our journey together, everyone! Happy New Year!
2012 November 27 The long wait is over and the website's new look is finally complete!
It took much longer than I had anticipated, but then again, I've found myself buried under schoolwork as of late. I'm nearing the end of my education (FINALLY!), and it seems like the whole world is coming at me from every angle. I'm also about to turn 26 at the end of the year, and I've been dealing with more and more "IRL" challenges every day.
Thank you all for your support of Ishea. This project means the world to me, and as I learn more about time management and writing and art, I hope you enjoy watching this story unfold!
