Chio Chronicles – September 2023 Edition

What’s Up?

It’s September yet again and fall is in the air! Well, sort of. We just had another weekend of 90° F days here, so I’m not sure what season it is at the moment, really. Regardless: here’s what’s new this month from us!

What’s New?

Follower Update Status

As I’ve written about now on both Radio Chio and on the Follower site, I’ve been dealing with a number of complicated health issues over the past few months. Although I never declared a proper hiatus for Follower, it’s essentially been in that state all this time. At the moment, I do not have an exact date for its return to updates because my condition is really a day-to-day issue that I’m learning to deal with as I go. I have some upcoming appointments which should help provide more help and direction, and hopefully I can get back to drawing. The best place to watch for updates is, of course, here on the newsletter or on I’ll post an update when I know more! In the meantime, thanks for your patience and support!

What’s Next?

Although I’m not able to work on comics at my regular pace, I am still working on what I can. I’m planning to do some more things like more Tiny Art Vlogs as I’m doing what I’m able to, just to keep everyone aware that I’m still alive, ha. 

I’m also planning on doing more posts like my Books for Comic Artists blog post. Are there any art topics you’d like to see me write about? Or even any topics in general? Drop a comment on one of my posts and let me know!

I’ve been doing research for a more long-term project that kind of straddles the line between writing and comics. I’m not totally sure what the end product is going to look like yet. But it is a sort of graphic memoir/autobio thing based on a lot of what I’ve been through during the pandemic. My life has basically been flipped upside down during the past few years, and there’s a lot of story to tell. Once I have a little more of this put together I’ll probably put it up for Chio Club members first.

Community News

The Discord rambles on! Come join us for friendly conversation about comics, art, and whatever you want. I may have even successfully fixed the Question of the Day bot, which seems to spark the most conversation around these quiet parts.

Thanks for Reading!

That’s all I’ve got for this month! Thanks as usual for reading about what we’ve been up to and sticking with us despite the fact that I’ve been the world’s slowest artist lately. Hopefully this will change soon!
