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!

We are now in the final phase of the campaign. We have 10 days remaining to reach 100% or higher. At the time of this writing, we sit at 62% funding and I aim to get that number higher.
It has not been easy and I’ve had doubts. As I type this blog post, my state of mind is different from what it was this morning. I had to make a choice between doing what is easy and doing what is right. That was covered in my most recent Kickstarter update so go read that.
But I learned something else during my Kickstarter for Dominic & Claire Circus and it was something that Tyler James Vogel taught me.
I am a leader.
Some of you may not believe that or even refuse to believe it. But I am a leader.
All of you out there who’ve been reading this blog, reading my comics, buying my merchandise and backing my Kickstarters…you are my followers.
I can’t just throw in the towel. A leader does not give up at the first sign of trouble or whenever there’s difficulty. If I did that, my followers and everyone else would realize that I’m not a leader. But I am one. And that’s why I can’t just quit.
I’d be letting myself down.
I’d be letting my backers, my fans and my supporters down.
I’d be letting Tyler down.
I’d be letting Dominic and Claire down.
I can’t do that. I’m a leader and everyone out there is counting on me.
Just a reminder – my first convention of 2020 is this weekend. I will be vending my comics art FM Comicon 2019. That will be held this Saturday, Feb. 21 and Sunday, Feb. 22 at the Ramada Fargo here in North Dakota. Look for me there!
As a reminder, the Sunnyville spin-off Kickstarter for Dominic & Claire Circus is winding down. By tomorrow morning, we will be in the last third or final ten days of the Kickstarter.
We are frozen solid for some reason at 59% funding. In spite of extra rewards and reaching out to contacts, everyone is holding back from pledging.
From now until the end, there will be daily updates on this blog to drive traffic to the Kickstarter and get pledges. Watch this blog for more news.
