And another thing you should check out is my very good friend Patrick’s comedy short that he’s just posted up on Vimeo. Not yaoi, but funny and well done nonetheless. Please go there now and wish him a Happy Birthday from me!
We have yet again hit the target for the bonus page! So in addition to a page on this Wednesday (a bonus page!) and the regular update next Saturday, there will be an additional bonus page on Wednesday, January 25th!
Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Katie P., Guillaume P. & Brian d. (who just made their fifth donation in a row! You rock, Brian!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow go out to new supporters Savannah M. & Megan M. for their generous donations over the last few days.
Big hugs go out to long-time friends of Artifice Jennifer B., Daniel K. (whose donation—his fourth super-generous donation in a row—put us over the top! High five, Daniel!) & Larisa V. (who made their fifteenth $25 donation to Artifice and who contributed even after the target had been hit! You rule, Larisa!) and also to new friend of Artifice Jenny K. for their super-generous $25 donations!
You all are so awesome! Thank you so much!
So… we have a clear decision from Maven. How will Deacon react? And what will this mean for our hero? Tune in this Saturday to find out!
(Oh, and I have to say, y’all totally cracked me up on the previous page reacting to Maven in the last panel. It seemed like every other comment was “OMG! She’s stripping! Is she going to try to seduce Deacon?! O_O”. And then every fourth comment was an eagle-eyed reader noting that Maven’s jacket was unbuttoned in previous panels, so she was actually buttoning up, not unbuttoning. [True.]
I’ve often said that reading the comments helps me to see this comic with fresh eyes. Never before so much as this time—you had me thinking about this page in a way I had never done before. These comments created the image in my mind of Maven pulling some kind of Mrs. Robinson and it would send me into a fit of chuckles every time. It was a great pick-me-up during a very stressful week. So thank you for that too. )
DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! Holy cow! With a record-breaking $170 donation, we have yet again hit the donation target! So, in addition to our regular Saturday updates, a bonus page this Wednesday and a bonus page on Wednesday the 25th, there will now also be a bonus page on Wednesday, February 1st! I am floored! Thank you all so, so much!
