New Coat

New Coat

Hey look, a new S&T! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? A fair bit longer than I’d anticipated, actually.

There are a few reasons for this, of varying degrees of significance, but basically it comes down to:

– Life is very full right now, but not with things that make good four-panel anecdotes

– That aforementioned full life leaves increasingly limited drawing time, which I have to ration between competing projects

– S&T is fun to write, but not as fun to draw

– Obligations make things less fun, especially when they don’t balance the work with financial remuneration

– When things are hard my creative response is escapism, always has been. And things are hard right now

So with that in mind, I’m going to stop pretending that Sloths and Trolleys has a twice a week schedule. I’m not quitting by any means, rest assured, but I’m going to draw these strips when I feel like I want to rather than when I feel like I should. I think they’ll be better for it.

I’ll still be making comics and illustrations and trading cards and whatnot, and the tide will probably shift back in S&T’s favour sooner or later, but for the time being I just want to draw explosions and weird robots, you know?

Patreon!

Hey folks! Just thought I’d let you know I’ve set up a Patreon campaign for my various comics. If you’ve been enjoying Sloths and Trolleys, Jenny Music, or any of the other stuff I’ve been making then please consider supporting them by becoming a patron. Even just a small pledge makes a difference!

You can also get early access to new strips, Patreon-exclusive sketches, and possibly even a say in which projects I work on in the future.

And as an extra bonus – the first ten patrons will go into a draw to receive a unique one-off illustration as a hi-res PDF (The winner will be selected at random once ten people sign up, so get in quick if you want to win).
