    I try not to find out what my wife is feeling when it comes to how she thinks about me. I’m allowed inside at night, so I consider that the win I need. [smirk]

    Enjoy your intermission! Nothing re-energizes the creative juices better, than giving a labor of love some down time, while focusing on some new projects!

    An omnibus collection? I had no idea you’d been doing this for five years. Thats quite the proud milestone!

  3. Chris

    Thanks, guys!
    Yeah, I’m excited about both projects. It’ll be cool to see five years of comics all neatly bound together, and I really want to get the graphic novel together this year for myself and for my kids. :)

  4. Xyhelm

    Blessings on your projects during your hiatus. I will miss your posts!

  5. Chris

    Thank you, Xyhelm! I’ll try to keep it interesting here while the comic’s not updating.

    Good luck with the kids’ book, about how often do you see yourself updating Odori Park in the immediate future?

  7. Chris

    Thank you, Jake! I don’t foresee myself updating the strip during the course of this year, but I’m going to aim to make at least one post about progress and news each week. Hopefully you can stick around. :)

  8. DadaHyena

    Best of luck, Chris! Make those dreams happen.

    I have always loved the way that you draw but I particularly like how you write. “Doing right by either” struck a chord.

    I’ll be reading. Best of luck with your new ventures. If the graphic novel becomes daunting and you want to subcontract tasks where I may help, please reach out.

    Thanks very much, guys!
    And thanks for the offer of help, Tim.
    Looking forward to seeing the book finally start to come together. :)

    I totally can relate to this strip! I can also totally understand needing time for your other important projects. Good luck with everything and I look forward to seeing it all!

  12. Chris

    Thanks, Khalid! I’m looking forward to sharing it with you and getting your thoughts. There’s a tanuki involved in my graphic novel, after all. ;)
