I’m excited to announce the relaunch of “Perk at Work”! As you can see, the art is a bit different… nothing new, ironically. I continue to work with new styles and feels as my influences change and shift. I used to get angry about not being consistent but I’m learning to understand my own process – there’s nothing wrong with following my inspiration.
On March 22, 2013 I will begin releasing new “Perk at Work” comics. I’m working on them right now, building a buffer. For those who may not know what a “buffer” is, it’s a backlog of comics made ahead of time. For instance, I may be drawing a comic today that will be published three months in the future. All comic strip creators wish to have a buffer. Very few do, even those (like myself) who try as hard as possible to do so. I heard that Charles Shultz used to work with a 3 – 6 month buffer, don’t know if that’s true. Regardless, it’s something to shoot for.
I am loving the direction of the new Perk at Work. I hope you will too. I welcome your comments and interaction. Here’s to hoping I can create a chuckle in your workday.
