Page Delay (again...) by LotMinx
November 10th, 2017, 8:15 am

Hey guys!

So yeah, the next page of "Avibus" is going to be a day or two late.
I've had to focus on a couple commissions I've been letting slide in my limited time off of work this week, and the next page--two pages, honestly--is a bit of a time-consuming layout.

The pages will go up once I can finish them, which, again, should be in no more than a couple days, and I'll hopefully be able to jump a bit ahead in work to get the Patreon Feed back ahead as well.

In the meanwhile, if you haven't already taken a look at it, I do have another webcomic available to read!

Saints'Quarter is an urban horror-fantasy series about the supernaturally saturated neighborhood of the name and the lives of the people who live there.
There are witches, slayers, mysterious guys with semi-sentient tattoos, weird mothlike pixie things, and a cat!

Oh, and you know, maybe a mystery or two, some drama, and lots of personal baggage...


It's even got a new cast page! I'll make one for "Avibus", too, soon, I swear...

Hey guys!

First, I'm gonna open with an "I'm sorry" about the delay on new "Avibus" pages. I'm still catching back up on the backlog of work I let pile up during August and September...

Second, I'm gonna say that the next page, page 127, is going to be going up over the weekend!
From there, we'll be back on weekly updates as normal until the current chapter ends!

And third, I have an announcement in the form annoyingly plugging my new shop on Redbubble:
There are already some familiar AND new prints and accessories available! More will be added throughout the month from inktober designs and other artwork!

Sorry again for the delay, guys.
Thanks for bearing with me.

In the meanwhile, I have a new vlog/time-lapse painting available on YouTube:
If you'd like to drop in for a watch and snicker at my brother and I acting like idiots in the audio.
Also, there's a cat in it.
Page Delay (126) by LotMinx

Hey guys!

Sorry to say it, but page 126 of "Avibus" is going to be a touch delayed due to my being occupied with finishing up a commission.

The page will go up as soon as it's completed. In the meanwhile, WIPs will be available as I can work on it for $1+ patrons.
Patreon Access! by LotMinx
March 31st, 2017, 1:35 pm
Hey guys!
Little Patreon related announcement today:

If you haven't noticed yet in the author comments on every page these days, I am on Patreon.
Patrons who pledge a certain amount every month get different types of rewards depending on the tier they sign up for, including access to comic pages as I finish them starting at $5 USD.

As of today, Smackjeeves reader patrons now have this access directly through the comic site! This means that you can see the new pages right at http://avibus.smackjeeves.com rather than only in the Patron Feed itself!

"Avibus" pages will be available anywhere from days early to up to a month early, depending on how much time I have between work to devote to new content!

This is great for you guys AND me, not only because your support would help me have more time to work on pages, but because I am so excited to get deeper into this story and share it with you. I am so impatient to get to some scenes, it's unreal.
So if you'd like to be able to read ahead, drop on by and pledge!

ALSO: If you pledge before the end of today, March 31st, 2017, you can even be entered into a raffle for personalized artwork AND a cameo in the comic!
(There are a couple strell scenes coming up REAL soon that may need an extra or two!)
Spring Special! by LotMinx
March 20th, 2017, 6:42 pm
It's finally Spring!
There's still snow on the ground outside here and it's cold as balls, but it's SPRING!

In favor of, I've decided to offer a bit of a special reward:
Get a cameo (yourself or a character of yours) in "Avibus" by pledging ANY AMOUNT on Patreon!
Usually, cameos are reserved for patrons who pledge $10 or more, but if you pledge before April 1st you can get one!
Pledges start at $1USD!!

That's not all, either!
When you pledge before the end of March, you will ALSO be entered into a raffle in which you can win a full color bust of any character you choose. Yourself, your OC, a character you love from your favorite series--ANY character!

Names will be drawn and announced on the 1st! That's in 12 days!
So go pledge, take a look at all the extra sketches available for patrons, vote on April's wallpaper, and wait for the winner!

Enter the raffle here: http://www.patreon.com/LotMinx

Happy Ostara!
Hiatus! by LotMinx
February 4th, 2017, 12:55 pm
Hey guys! Couple announcements today;

For starters, I've already mentioned it on page, but "Avibus" will be on a short hiatus before the next chapter begins and will return in March.

Also, I'm moving!
Next week, I'm flying up to New York and getting set up in my new situation for February. I won't be in a more permanent place until March, but I will still be working on getting set for Chapter Five in the meanwhile.
Development sketches for the story to come will be going up on Patreon, and new pages will go up upon completion for patrons first before the hiatus ends on Smackjeeves and Tapastic. So if you'd like to stay ahead of pages and see more on this and other projects, take a look and consider pledging!

That's it for now. If anything else comes up with the move that might set the return of "Avibus" back at all, I'll let you know.
Have a good weekend!
Page Delay... by LotMinx

Hey guys!
We had a bit of a power outage yesterday that completely killed any and all ability to get Page 89 done and up. Spent a good deal of the afternoon (and night) spewing some colorful language over it, let me tell you TvT
What with that, the prep for the launch of another comic, Saints'Quarter (http://saintsquarter.smackjeeves.com or http://tapastic.com/series/SaintsQuarter), and getting set to fly up to New York next weekend, the next page is gonna continue to be slightly delayed. I'll do my best to get it up before I leave, but if I can't then it'll go up October 7th and everything will resume as normal!
Thanks for your patience~
