Hey guys!

So there IS a new page of "Avibus" today! However, the page is going up on the new comic site before showing up here next week.


Go take a look! There's a character page with stuff on it and everything!
Book Two Update by LotMinx
January 5th, 2019, 8:15 pm
Hey guys!
So due to being a bit sick and more than a bit jetlagged yesterday, I forgot to post an announcement about the Book Two premiere for "Avibus" and... I'm sorry about that.

The basic update is this:
I had the cover for Chapter One ready, but last minute tweaks while on the flight home demanded that I alter it a bit to better match the chapter. When I got home, though, it was well after midnight. And my old computer, which was the only one with the files on it at the time, decided to be just as jetlagged as me and wouldn't function well enough to work on anything.
So I've spent the last couple of days getting the ol' hunk of junk to work well enough again to finish transferring all the files I need to the new laptop (when I wasn't working a nine hour shift at the store) and just need to get the tablet software added before I can get back to working on pages.
I'm sorry for the wait, I really am. I was fully ready to jump back into things...
Life Happens, though.

What you can expect from here is a little 'previously on' series of pages I've been working on to sum up the important aspects of Book One before launching into the cover and first page of Chapter One by the weekend. Hopefully.
Now that I'm back in New York, I need to focus pretty hard on looking for a new apartment, so I can't promise pages for either comic will be as regular as I'd like for a few weeks. I'll have to just do what work I can between shifts at the store and open houses.
Everything should hopefully be more or less settling down by March, though, so we'll be able to return to updates as usual soon.

Thanks for your patience and thanks for reading~

Happy New Year!
No Page Today by LotMinx
October 18th, 2018, 7:19 am
Hey guys,

I have to apologize for Page 174 not being available today.
I ran into some personal conflict last night regarding a situation going on with my building changing hands in any way but smoothly that ate up my evening and prevented me from being able to work on comic pages at all. To give full transparency, I'm in a position where I'm concerned about potentially losing my apartment and having to move within the next few months...

I will get the next page up as soon as possible, hopefully, tomorrow, and follow with the final page of Book One, 175, this weekend if I cannot get it finished before tomorrow night.

In the meanwhile, due to my current situation and the stress it is causing me, I once again point to various ways you can support the comic if you would like:

Patreon: On Patreon, patrons have access to first looks at pages, works in progress, and extra materials as available. As "Avibus" goes on Hiatus next week until January, patrons will also be able to see progress and previews of Book Two as I work on polishing plotlines, new character designs, new characters, and more. Pledges start at $1 USD monthly for access to the patron feed!

Ko-Fi: Ko-Fi is an at-will tip jar through which you can support your favorite creators by essentially 'buying them a coffee' through a donation of small set amounts. You can do so multiple times or just the once. 'Coffees' start at $3 USD.

Commissions: Commissions are currently on a waiting list basis due to a backlog of work, but if you would like to reserve your place you can email me at mistress0minx@gmail.com to discuss projects and pricing.

Spread the Word!
Not everyone can support creators monetarily, but word of mouth is a surprisingly powerful tool. Share the comic! Share these links if you like! Any and all support is helpful and appreciated!

Thank you guys so much for reading and supporting "Avibus" this far. You're awesome~
"Avibus" Hiatus|Guest Art Submissions! by LotMinx
September 13th, 2018, 10:59 pm
Hey guys!

Ten pages left of Chapter Six as Book One draws to a close, which means the comic will be going on (official) hiatus after the last page goes up on October 19th. It’s a little later than I originally planned, but this means the hiatus won't be as long as I'd originally thought it might be.

Book Two will begin with a tentative-yet-pretty-sure date of January 4th with the cover reveal and Page 1. I don’t want you guys to be left with nothing, though, during November and December, so I have a few extras planned such as character sheets and the like that I will be posting in place of pages.

And that's not ALL I want to do! Beginning today, I am accepting submissions for guest art posts to go up alongside extras on the main hosting site and Tapas!

"Avibus" isn't that big of a title, I know, but I figured now is as good a time as any to open guest spots for the first time.

Submissions Guidelines are as follows:
- The typical standard: Your submission must include at least one character from the “Avibus” cast. However!
- It MUST be a character that has already appeared in the main series so far! There are a few people who have seen concepts from later but I’d rather not show these characters until they appear on-page...
- OCs are okay as long as you follow rule one.
- Submissions must be Safe For Work!
- You can use any medium (i.e. digital or traditional/scanned) so long as you send me an image file that's a minimum of 900x1350 pixels. JPEG is preferred, but PNG is acceptable.
- If you want me to link to any sites or portfolios, please include the links and descriptions thereof in the body of the email when you submit your attached image file.
- Written submissions are acceptable! In fact, I may just doodle a couple illustrations to go with the good parts~
Just send any written pieces--NO LONGER than 1000 words--to me and I'll format them into proper image files. I'm not expecting any unwieldy amount of submissions this time.

SUBMISSIONS HAVE BEEN EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 1ST. Email to mistress0minx@gmail.com. That's a zero, not an 'O' ;)

Thanks for reading~
Happy Birthday "Avibus"! (and Guest Submissions) by LotMinx
August 23rd, 2018, 9:35 am
"Avibus" is now four years old!

With this fourth birthday, I have a few announcements to make for the future of the comic and my plans for it over the next few months:

To start; Book One is almost over!

I know I've said something before about having already finished a 'part one' of the story with the end of Chapter Five, but that didn't actually turn out to be the case. While I did mean it at the time, I hadn't yet finished my full reevaluation of where the story was going in the next stretch.

Can you tell this is a very seat-of-pants written series?

So, in truth, Chapter Six is going to mark the end of "Avibus", Book One. What does this mean?

Well, it means a Hiatus.

The comic will be going on a temporary break after the end of the chapter while I gear up for Book Two. The second book is much more tightly plotted, much more efficiently planned out, than the first and will require a brief break to make sure I have everything ironed out enough to get started.

I plan to post the last thirteen pages of chapter six at a rate of two per week, making up for the frequent delays over the past few months, which will close out the chapter at the end of September. After which, starting in October, "Avibus" will be on hiatus until the start of Book Two.
I don't want it to be a ghost town around here, though, during that time, so I will be posting the occasional extra materials related to the comic.
(and finishing the character page, I swear)
Along with that;

I will be opening submissions for guest art!

In lieu of pages, I'd like to post guest pieces among the extra sketches I'll be doing.
Submissions will open on September 1st and run throughout the month. I'll post another announcement and provide more details about image requirements, where to send them, and the hiatus itself at that time.

Thanks for reading!

Hey guys,
Sorry to say that there won't be a page for "Avibus" today while I catch up on some commission work.

In the meanwhile, you can take a look at my other comic, Saints'Quarter, if you haven't already, or check out one of these awesome series:

Mias & Elle
How to be a Werewolf
Sister Claire
Wilde Life
Patrik the Vampire

We'll be back with page 149 next Friday!
Slight Delay by LotMinx

Hey guys!

Sorry to say that this week's page of "Avibus" will be a little late. I ran into a bit of a hiccup scheduling wise while moving things around work.
I plan to have it up by the end of the day, tomorrow at the latest, and the following page will go up for Patreon patrons before Monday.

Thanks for your patience and sorry for the wait.
