Hey everyone.

I’m not gonna beat around the bush with this: I’ve hit a little bump in the road as of late. Graduation is right around the corner, and between finishing up the last of my college courses and trying to figure out what I’m even going to be doing after May, Dream State has been shifted to the back burner. It’s not the ideal situation for me, but I think it’s what I have to do.

I’ve been feeling a little jumbled about the comic as of late. Paper Cranes dealt with a lot of the themes that Dream State was going to cover, and while that doesn’t mean I want to abandon this comic, it just means it functions differently in my own mythos, and so I’ve been needing to take more time re-situating it, figuring out how it works again.

It’s been hard to write Dream State as of late, mostly because I’m not in the best of headspaces at the moment. Job hunting is one of the most exhausting and emotionally tumultuous things I’ve ever had to go through, and it’s been difficult trying to figure out how to climb that hill.

Act 0, by the end of it all, felt rushed and haphazard, and I don’t want that to happen to the rest of the comic (there are about 4 acts in all, as an fyi). So, I think the best decision I can make is to take some time to really focus on writing and production, build myself up a buffer, feel like I’m in a good spot, and the start updating regularly again.

That, and I kind of want to start working on something different too. I’ve got all these ideas at the ready, and once school’s out, I’m definitely gonna buckle down on getting both Dream State and maaaaybe a new comic running about some demons and hijinks I’ve been batting around for…geez, about five years now?

It’s not a decision I feel happy about, but Star and the Player and their journey is something I don’t want to rush or treat poorly, because as self-indulgent as it is, it’s important to me, and to my own growth.

Thank you all for your support, and for baring with me through this time. The fact that you choose to spend even just a little bit of your time reading this comic and supporting my work means the world to me.

As always, you can catch me on my art tumblr or on Twitter in the meantime.

Catch you on the flipside.
