Those of you who follow my comic-a-day will have noticed I haven't posted anything new since day 70. Not for want of trying. There are a couple of minor marks made on paper that I had to abandon due to the flu virus thing I've had now for about eight days. Having managed to produce work before when feeling ill, this has left me feeling increasingly guilty but the break has been necessary in order to get better.
This doesn't mean day 70 will be my last comic a day though. A dear friend suggested that I take my time to get better and just start again when I can (they also threatened to hurt me should they see a new comic up here before I'm better). This seems like the best plan rather than attempt to catch up by producing two or three a day. So, hopefully, in the next few days I'll have comic 71 up here and I'll just have to finish a few days later than everyone else taking part.
Not ideal, and I hate to see this challenge derailed after such a strong, uninterrupted run - but it really is unavoidable. Thanks for your patience and for everyone's encouraging comments, twitter messages, and emails.
After over a month of illness and several hospital visits, I'm now finally starting to feel better. It will take another month at least to feel close to 100% but hopefully I'll manage to restart the 100 days project in the next week - fingers crossed... I have to say, I've missed it.
