Hello everyone! I figured now is as good a time as any to make a special announcement: I’m writing a book! Actually, I’ll be writing the Anchor & Owl as a book, which means it won’t be a comic any longer. Over the last year, I’ve really enjoyed working on this project, but with my work schedule and my need to overachieve, it’s taken way too long to make any progress on this story. I have so much to tell and so much planned out that if I continue this story as a comic it will never get done. I do love drawing though, so my plan is to incorporate lots of illustrations into the book. It will be a picture novel of sorts? Anyway, I’m looking forward to working on it and I’ve already written about a quarter of the story (FAR exceeding the storyline I’ve finished so far in the comic). I’m finding it’s much quicker for me to write the story than draw it and I’m making way more progress than I expected to have at this time, and I’m using NaNoWriMo as motivation so I should have a first draft done by early 2017! I’m super excited about the ideas I have and can’t wait to share with everyone. Keep an eye out for more news in the coming months!

(I may still post 1 to 2 more pages of this comic, which will round out the end of Chapter 1, but have not decided.)
