There’s more than just test anxiety going on here.

Wow, August is sure coming up fast, huh?  For those of you who’ve been around a while, you’ll know that August is the comic’s birthday month, during which time I fundraise for hosting costs (I just got the renewal notice, hence the post), and also throw together some special and/or extra stuff to thank my fans for being so awesome.

So for 2015, let’s see…

I’ll, of course, be doing the traditional Q&A (they can all be found in my DA gallery, but here’s last year’s as an example).  When we get closer to August, I’ll make a special post about it, so all the questions can be grouped together on the same page.

I’m also going to try to finish off Ixion’s second chapter.  At the very minimum, I’m going to release the next four pages, spread out over August, because I really want to wrap the chapter up.  I haven’t had nearly as much time to work on it as I’d like, but I’m going to make it a priority over the upcoming month.  In fact, I actually have next week off, so during my vacation time feel free to prod me in the chat box and demand progress updates.  Keep me accountable, guys!  Don’t let me get vacation lazy!

And, I don’t want to make any promises on this because I don’t know how much time I’ll have leftover from the Ixion pages, but I’m also going to attempt to add in some more written work, maybe in the Alien Guide, maybe in the form of another myth.  (And maybe a bonus page or two because there hasn’t been one for a while?  I recently uncovered a fully sketched page I had forgotten about titled “Security Tattle”, so that might be something worth finishing.)

So!  If you would like to help contribute towards Shades of Gray’s hosting costs for the upcoming year, you can click this little link here:

There’s actually still some donation money left over from last year’s fundraiser, so the site is already partially taken care of!  As it stands the renewal is…

Currently $50/$120 funded!

6/27 update:  Currently $87/120 funded!

Thanks for reading, everyone!  Have an awesome weekend! ♥
