Sorry for the unexpected month hiatus from Ellerbisms. If you weren’t following me on Twitter and didn’t know what was up, first of all me and Anna moved flat (which left little time to draw the strips) and then it took forever to get our broadband reconnected (which left no means for me to post the eventually drawn strips). I’m sure the world continued to rotate without regularly updated comics of my face.
If you’ve read today’s strip you may have noticed that it looks a little different from what you’re used to seeing. The reason is I’m now drawing Ellerbisms at a larger scale than before as I filled up the A5ish Moleskin I was using a few weeks back and have now moved onto one of the swanky new A4ish ones. I really like the shift in scale and it’s sort of given me a little refresh with Ellerbisms and I’m starting to really get back into drawing them.
Here’s a photo to show the first strip of my second Moleskin compared to my new one.
Another change is the update schedule, with me stripping away the Thursday update for the time being. I’ve been really busy recently drawing my other comic Chloe Noonan (Issue 2 avaliable to buy here) and I want to continue to draw it for some time to come, so that means Ellerbisms needs to be reduced and not go away like it often does when I want to draw Noonan. There’ll be a normal update on a Monday from now on and over the coming weeks the site will change a little to accomidatethe new size of the strips and content.
What else is new? Oh yeah, new badges/buttons/pins whuteva you calls them, I call ‘em Ellerbadges! You can totally buy them from the Store for £2!
Regarding Christmas delivery details, if you live in the UK and want to buy something from me as a gift for Christmas then by golly you better get your order in before the 17th of December or I can’t guarantee it’ll arrive in time for Crimbo. If you live outside the UK then my advice is to get on it ASAP. I can do book dedications, just let me know in …the “message to seller” box when you check out.
That’s enough outta me, how have you all been?
