Parting is such sweet sorrow...
It's been such an amazing run. Nine years and seven months exactly, I think. In all that time, we've laughed and cried, you've loved me and shaken your fist at me, you've wished me well and patiently waited for updates when I was under the weather. You've related and queried, commented and consoled. They've come from very near and very far, from old friends, new friends, and people I've never met (yet!). And I know this, because I've read your letters and forum messages. All of them. They haven't all been answered, but know that I have indeed read them all. And appreciated them.
Thank you, thank you, a thousand times thank you for investing your time and interest in my stories and scribbles. A comic strip artist is only as good as the number and quality of people who give a damn about their work. If that is the measure of the strip artist's worth, then I feel truly blessed. I hope I will continue to be blessed by your interest in future projects. I'm going to see about some sort of mailing list or feed to keep people up to date on things without the need for an LJ account or frequent trips back here just to see if anything is new.
Once again, thank you. It's been quite a ride, and it wouldn't have been possible without you.
