Just a reminder – my latest creation, Poison Ivy Gulch, officially kicks off on Monday June 1, 2020!
I’ve mentioned it before. Poison Ivy Gulch is a comic strip set in the Old West during the 1870s. The emphasis here though isn’t slice-of-life like Sunnyville Stories; this work only has good old-fashioned laughs.
It has been over a month since I last updated. I finally finished sending out the rewards for my last Kickstarter, Dominic & Claire Circus.
At the time of this writing, Sunnyville Stories remains on hiatus; given the current situation with the coronavirus pandemic, I’m not sure how well my plans will pan out to liquidate the remaining stock of Sunnyville books. It still remains my goal for 2021 to crowdfund both my planned picture book and new version of the Sunnyville trade paperbacks. I proved earlier this year that I can raise thousands of dollars through crowdfunding.
I am also unsure about Dominic & Claire. I have more fun planned with them but like with Sunnyville, that might have to wait. Now that my Kickstarter is out of the way, I need to think ahead to two major projects.
I am planning to launch a webcomic in June. I’ll have updates on that later. In addition to that, I have been long neglecting my planned picture book of Hilda & Richie. That ties into my master plan that was previously discussed. I have been neglecting that for too long – if this book is to be a reality and to be crowdfunded in January 2021, then it is imperative to get started on it.
As you know, Hilda & Richie do exist in the Sunnyville universe so I want to do a crossover to help promote that to all of you readers out there. I’ll have some periodic updates about their book but most updates will be over on their own blog.
Updates will be more sporadic on this blog for the immediate future but stay tuned as I will share more news about Sunnyville and my other comics works.

My Kickstarter has finished and that Sunnyville spin-off comic, Dominic & Claire Circus, is nearly done. If all goes well, it should be finished by tomorrow night. Check out the latest Kickstarter update on that.
After that, my next order of business is a planned comic book/webcomic I’ve been planning for a long time. It’s a Western called Poison Ivy Gulch. There are some similarities to Sunnyville, in spite of its human cast. It deals with a remote, isolated town with its populace full of eccentric characters. But that is a whole other story.
I also plan to continue work on my picture book, Hilda & Richie, which is also part of the Sunnyville universe.
As for Sunnyville Stories itself? I’m still on the fence about what to do. I will have been working on this saga for ten years now. I don’t know if it should continue as I want to move on. On the other hand, I can’t just abandon Rusty and friends. Even now with crowdfunding more comics a suitable option for me, I just don’t know what to do.
Sunnyville will remain on hiatus for the foreseeable future while I think things over.
That’s it for now. Stay tuned for more news!
