HELLO again ~~~ ✨ Today's a DOUBLE UPDATE so make sure you hit "PREV" to read the 1st update FIRST !!
As some of you may know, TINF's 8th anniversary was on Saturday, December 22! As a way to celebrate, I released all my previous $1+ Patreon desktop/mobile wallpapers I've made! You can see my tumblr post here and check out the wallpaper pack on my gumroad!
I want to celebrate a little more, though, so for both Tuesday + Friday I'll be doing 2 page updates!!!!!!! 🎉🎉🎉 Yes, yes, you've heard me right... there'll be 4 pages of TINF this week! Truly wild.. truly free..
I've said this on multiple platforms by now, but I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU! again for all of you supporting me for all this time, whether it's been years or days. When I started working on TINF 8 years ago, I remember telling a family friend that my goal was to make a small income off of it at some point. A few months before TINF's 2 year anniversary was when I was officially hired and paid to draw the comic (with another company) and, since then, it's been going steady and strong for me. TINF doesn't have the biggest fanbase and I most definitely don't live luxuriously by any means, but I feel very blessed and fortunate to be able to continue for this long, while staying completely true to my own vision. I know some artists are knocked down by the expectations of others, but I really do acknowledge that I've only been encouraged to keep going, and I'm incredibly grateful to all of you for that 💕 my main goal is to finish this comic in a way that's satisfying to all of us but, most of all, satisfying for the characters that I was able to grow with, because of all of you supporting me. 💘
And of course, I could never have come this far without my bff Thryn, who consistently grounds me, keeps me strong, and encourages me to draw and write whatever I want, no matter how embarrassed I feel of my own ideas LOL. Thank you, Thryn, for always checking my work everyday, with incredibly wild hours. I love you !!! 💘💘💘
With that, please enjoy the double updates!! I'll edit out the red text when I update on Friday! 💖
