Two pages in this update, starting HERE!
Ethan’s sucked into the Lurker’s illusion and after a swing and a miss, our crafty Lurker finds some rather interesting memories and dreams to drag out from the dark…
FYI, I will be taking a short break from updates for the holidays; it’s a busy couple of weeks and I won’t have much time to work on pages. I hope you all have a wonderful close to this year and start off the new one with friends/family/good times! See you back on January 20th so we can continue the adventure of Embarrassing a Blushing Ethan Until the End of Time™.

Yes, I’m waaay early, but let’s just say all of October is basically Halloween ☆⌒(*＾-°)v
It’s been a really long time since I’ve made a blog post, let’s have an update on what’s going on lately!
★Health Update★ My wrist/arm is steadily improving! I’ve got a three times a day routine of stretching/exercises to keep things moving, and can usually draw for a few hours before I need to stop. I’m very mindful of what’s manageable and what’s too far, and I’ve got my grip strength back now! This isn’t to say things are perfect, there are some days everything is aching from the day job and I need the night off, but its a vast improvement over just a few months back. Managing a RSI like this is a careful balancing act of rest/work and I’m certainly not the only artist dealing with arm pain, but I’m glad I’ve found a routine that seems to be working out. Thank you all for the well wishes you’ve sent in the meantime! (°◡°♡)
★What’s Cooking in the Patreon★ There’s now three complete Alternate Universe sketch comics over on the $1 tier of Patreon, and twenty some Basement tier sketches/mini comics waiting for you if you’d like to support me there! There’s a brand new Alternate Universe comic that just started featuring rowdy lust demons wreaking havoc at the Academy, so now’s a good time to jump in. ╭( ･ㅂ･)و If you’re not into Patreon but still want to support the comic, sharing the URL with friends, reblogging update posts on Tumblr, or RTing updates from Twitter are all awesome ways to help!
★Art Gallery Additions★ There’s a lot of new sketches in the gallery if you haven’t checked in a while, including a section for commissioned/fan art of EA characters! There’s so many Al faces in there, it’s so beautiful. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
★Livestreams★ I’ve been trying to do more frequent livestreams if that’s a thing you like, you can come chat with me and watch some art being made (if I’m working on NSFW pages you’ll be given notice) it’s a real good time!
We’re closing in on the end of Part 2 in the comic, and in Part 3 things amp up in new ways and I’m just so excited to tell this story to you guys I’m practically vibrating when I sit down to draw, haha! Hope everyone out there is doing well; thank you as always for hanging out with me and these buff demons and blushing exorcists!
Hello readers! It occurred to me that I haven’t updated in a bit and I thought maybe you’d like to know what’s up: I’m doing a lot better! I had inadvertently made my right arm worse before I knew I had tendinitis, then overworked my left arm trying to compensate, then I was essentially left sitting on the couch with both arms wrapped up in ice and wrist splints for two and a half weeks going stir crazy thinking about how much I wanted to draw, haha. I think I should be good to go this weekend to start working on pages again – though I’m know I’m going to have to take it easy until I feel confident I’m not going to re-aggravate anything. I will do my best to deliver you a new page as soon as I can get it done! It might be slow going for a while but please bear with me, and thanks for your patience. 🙂
Soooooo just a heads up, folks! I hurt my wrist last week and haven’t been able to work on any pages because of it. Since I’ve never injured my wrist before, I’m heeding the advice of my fellow artists who gave me plenty of ominous warnings that trying to work through wrist pain wasn’t a good idea and would extend the healing process. Unfortunately, that means I’m really behind in my work on both Patreon and the comic, but I really don’t want to make it worse by trying to draw when I should be resting it.
Might have one page ready by Saturday, but I’ll have to see how it goes! :\
