tl;dr Outissa is going on a semi-hiatus for a couple of months or so, until I have completely cleared out my commission queue.

First off, I apologize to all of you for any disappointment or upset or anything for this. I wish there was another way to do this, but my situation has been getting more and more untenable and I believe that this is the only option.

Basically, what has happened is due to a series of very unfortunate circumstances over the last year and a half or so, I owe a lot of friends a lot of art. Every time I’ve sat down to work on a comic page, I’ve felt horrible for not finishing art that I owe; every time I’ve sat down to work on commissions, I’ve felt awful for not working on updating the comic.

That has lead to me getting more and more depressed as I’ve fallen more and more behind, which makes it even harder to work, and it’s just become an awful, awful cycle.

It’s gotten to be so bad that I’ve considered cancelling the comic outright on more than one occasion, because I was convinced I’d grown to loathe it. D:

However, I’m now in a place where I’m not sinking further and further into debt – I’m able to get the medication I need in order to be productive and get it for free. Furthermore, my costs for rent and such are now low enough that I can get by without having to take on commissions at all.

What this means is that I actually have the ability to unclog this gigantic art clump that’s been causing my creative toilet to keep backing up and getting shit all over the place.

So, here’s the plan: I complete a commission every week until that mess is cleaned out, and then get back to being able to work on my comic completely guilt-free, and deliver the story that I really wanna deliver at the level of quality that I’d like to. <3¬†Also, I’ll be posting high-res versions of completed commissions and such here on Patreon as normal in the meantime, so you guys will still be getting some content. : D

Feel free to poke me if you have any questions or concerns. Love all of you guys. <3
