JL8 will ideally resume updates in two weeks. I’m spending this current week working on the headsketch book sets I offered, as well as trying to build a buffer of JL8 strips so that in the event I need to take time off, I’ll have some queued up. I appreciate everyone’s patience with this wonky update schedule, and I’m sorry I haven’t been clearer as to what’s been going on.
tastynumnums asked: Real talk: Where can I find/buy Necropolis? I followed you a little ways back when you were starting it up and really enjoyed your art style.
Thanks man. I get a lot of asks about Necropolis, so let’s do this.
I start drawing Necropolis full-time literally next week.
I hope to have the first issue in stores in the spring of 2015.
So far, it is set to be published in English and in French.
Further details will become available we approach publication.
I am so unspeakably happy that anyone wants to buy or publish this book. I count the days till I can spend all my waking hours making you Necropolis comics. Right now I count about six days.
Warm up, 10 minutes ish? (I’m the slowest sketcher)
It’s been brought to my attention that yesterday’s apology was partly phrased in such a way that was blaming, evasive, or exclusionary.
The most glaring instance is that I mentioned that the women whom I’ve sent photos to were women I was in a sexual relationship with. However, I did not clarify that I believe I sent photos after that relationship had run its course.
Its become apparent that the more I try to explain, the more folks are getting upset, which I was warned about and chose to ignore such warnings. So I’m just going to say yes, I sent some unsolicited photos to two women which made them uncomfortable. That was incredibly wrong of me, and I’m deeply sorry for it.
Clearly I’ve been oblivious to how certain behaviors of mine are affecting other people (extending beyond the photo thing, just general behavior), and I’ve begun actively seeking help to try and pinpoint that behavior, the cause of it, and what I can do to remedy it. I’d like to take a brief moment to thank the few people who have privately contacted me and have been actively working with me to try and help figure all this stuff out.
What it boils down to is that I’ve made some horrible mistakes. I did not mean to make them, I did not know I was making them, but that does not lessen the severity of them. All I can ask from any of you is that you believe me when I say I’m truly sorry, and will do my absolute best to make sure this never happens again, in either public or private.
I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who has come out to support me today. It doesn’t change what I did, but it does mean a lot to know that people are willing to believe me when I say this whole thing was one big mistake, and that I’m truly remorseful.
However, and MOST importantly: I am the ONLY PARTY who should be receiving ANY blame in this matter. I am the one who sent pictures to women who didn’t wish to receive them. The only reason I’ve mentioned that it was a misunderstanding is because I certainly don’t want people to think this is something I would do had I known it would offend the involved parties. The fact that it was a misunderstanding DOES NOT belittle the severity of what I’ve done.
I’m seeing people arguing that “silence is consent,” or “they had it coming,” or something of this nature. While I appreciate that you’re trying to defend me/stand up for me, this is not the way to do it. Those are both very dangerous mentalities that a great deal of sexual harassment/assault stem from, so please refrain from making such statements.
