Life update time! by Pan-Mingshu

Ok, so here's what's up:

• I'm seeing a therapist about a medical transition
• Got diagnosed with a depressive disorder and will get medication for that
• Decided to change to B+W for Smiler to save on time/labour
• Got a keyboard for my iPad so I have my shortcuts back, it's making things go much faster.

I'm not going to name an update schedule, because unfortunately my life is just too inconsistent right now. My work shifts are random and week-to-week, I still have a project to work on for my Jewellery workshop at uni, plus the aforementioned therapy stuff.

BUT I will be trying to finish a page a week, and I'll just upload them as they're done. Once I've been doing it like that for a while, I'll reevaluate an actual update schedule and maybe even reactivate Patreon, if I can maintain some consistency.

In the meantime, here's a look test for Smiler's new visual format:

It's 30-something King Demeter, kinging it up with wee baby Reese strapped to her chest. Bonus Ungle Argus on the left, there.

Got a job, yay! It's part-time, so I still have plenty of time to work on my comics.

Got a new place, yay! It's modern and air-conditioned, so I'll be nice and comfortable while I work on my comics!

I'm having a short story published in an anthology soon, so keep an eye out for the Kickstarter link that I'll be posting while I work on my comics!

Page 23 is in progress, and I spent today fixing up the website so it looks nice!
Hiatus by Pan-Mingshu

Hey guys,

Sorry to do this yet again, but a series of pretty severe breakdowns means that I need to take a break from Smiler until October, at the earliest.
Don't worry, I won't be rebooting the story again, and this is still my lifelong passion, so I will be coming back to it before too long.

But for the sake of my mental health, I needed to lighten my workload. So, until end of semester, when my graduate project is complete, I'm putting Smiler on hiatus.

Thanks for understanding - see you all for Halloween :)

End of semester crunch and juggling group projects means that page production is a little slower than usual.
It won't be more than a couple of days at most, just hold tight. :)
