Collecting the Recently Retro-Posted ‘Sects Episodes…

As promised when I returned from my week-long absence due to illness and lack of Internet… I’ve been catching up and trying not to flood too much in the process. All the episodes of ‘Sects from the past week or so are up now, but all were retro-posted. This means that they were back-dated to make it easier for finding them in the archives, but harder to find as new posts for my followers who just use their WordPress Reader.

To make things easier, below are links to all of the recently retro-posted episodes in case you haven’t seen a new cartoon since last Tuesday’s (02/07/2017) episode:

‘Sects Wednesday 02/08/2017
‘Sects Thursday 02/09/2017
‘Sects Friday 02/10/2017

‘Sects Monday 02/13/2017
‘Sects Tuesday 02/14/2017
‘Sects Wednesday 02/15/2017
‘Sects Thursday 02/16/2017

Read all those, and you’re all caught up! There was no Sunday comic last week as that was the height of my sickness… and I skipped Friday this week to get back on schedule so I will be posting a Saturday episode this week instead that will go up very shortly. Thanks again for the patience, and I hope everyone enjoys catching up on my nonsense! 🙂


Sometimes Life Intrudes on Fiction (or Why There Have Been No Posts Lately)

Ah… remember back when I used to post most every day… that comic strip ‘Sects and other such things? Yeah… me too. Good times… good times!

So, about that…

A perfect storm of nastiness… I was fighting a nasty cold, lots of congestion and other generally non-fun things for a week or so but was finally looking like I was about to turn a corner by the weekend, but then Sunday I entered a hurling contest of the worst kind (think about it) and I won! Or I lost… cookies were tossed. I’ve been on another slow mend this week to recover from that!

But, that’s not why there have been no cartoons.  The only day I actually didn’t feel like drawing was Sunday. I was in a bad way that day… then slept most of Monday but at least wasn’t sick, just weak and back to cartoons.  So, Sunday is skipped with no return… but I’ve been doing all the others, since last week.

The reason I couldn’t post… is because I also lost Internet sometime late Tuesday night of last week. So I couldn’t tell people I was sick or post anything or argue with people on the Internet about politics or religion! 🙂 The humanity!

But I’m back… and tonight I’m going to be retro-loading last week’s cartoons. That means Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday episodes of ‘Sects from last week will be going up shortly but they will be going up as if they were posted on their proper dates, thereby making it easier for people to find them via search and by the calendar. Tomorrow I will post some more from this week, and hopefully be caught up by the weekend so I can post Sunday on schedule and be back on track.

Once I am back on track, I will post a link post that contains links to all the ones I’ve retro-posted so that if you are a follower who just checks your WordPress Reader you can use that to more easily find all the ones you missed.

Hopefully I’m back for a while again without interruption! Thanks for being patient and I hope the horrible puns and terrible jokes are down to my usual standards for you. 🙂

*This one has it all! 🙂 Also, I’m not even on Twitter so I don’t know if that’s how you do it or not…

Facebook Reaction Icons Logo Recreation

Back in October, for something in my ‘Sects comic strip, I wanted to parody Facebook a bit. I had a plot point where the Internet was down and one of my characters was so ill-equipped to handle being disconnected that he was running around putting these little stickers on everything the same way he would like a Facebook post. 🙂  So that meant I had to create these emoji…


Fairly simple logo recreation work here. Nothing complicated, but there is genius in simplicity sometimes… and now that I have these clean vector renderings I can use them all over the place!

Technical Difficulties and Lack of Recent Updates…

So… anyone new to the blog over the last week has found a ghost town, lacking only tumbleweeds to seal the deal. I hope I haven’t missed out on any new followers as a result! Regulars have probably wondered just what the heck happened. Well, to make a long story short, I’ve been without Internet since last Friday… so for the past seven days roughly it was not possible for me to check emails or post to the blog or do any number of other things I wanted to do.

But, I’m back… in black… yes I am… wait… that’s a song… I am back, though! I have been doing a lot of new drawings during the impromptu hiatus, so there will be a LOT of new posts coming your way over the next few days to make up for lost time. Also, I did continue with new ‘Sects episodes that I will be posting this weekend as well. Hopefully everything will be back on a normal schedule by Monday, but, here’s where things will get confusing for some so bear with me…

To make things easier for future followers and to make it easier to re-read old episodes, I am going to back-date all the posts of ‘Sects episodes so that they appear to have been posted on the regularly scheduled dates. They will be in order, and if you visit the blog it’s no big deal… but if you’re using the WordPress Reader then it means you’ll have to scroll back in time to see them. To help out a bit, once I’ve posted all the missed episodes for the past week, I will come back and edit this post and add active links to each day’s episode to make it easier for you to find them.

On the plus side, I think I did some funny bits while unable to post… and I’ve got a bunch of other drawings to post as well that I hope you’ll like. Thanks to everyone for sticking with me, sorry for the temporary absence, and I hope these will all be worth the wait!
