What's up everyone! The next chapter of Jill Rhodes's tale is illustrated and is currently being written, so it'll be up in a couple days or so, thus concluding Part 3 and marking the halfway point of the story. I do, however, have something fairly important to make known.
This project is a labor of love, as much as anything else I put my creative mind to. However, it does take a colossal amount of time and energy to get just one chapter done. By my estimation, this newest picture and story will have taken close to 50 hours of brainstorming, outlining and writing/illustrating to do within the span of a week. In some cases I forgo sleep entirely to get as much done as possible; I can be like that once I get a spark going. The story in particular takes a great deal of thought, as I want Jill Rhodes's story to be have something to say.
Long story short, I pour an enormous amount of time into this and put it up for all to see free of charge. What would really, and I mean really give me more of a justifiable reason to work on this project is if people donated money. I don't have any minimum amount; its a tough economy we live in so I perfectly understand if people don't have a lot to spare. But if people donated, I would be able to justify committing more time to work on this alongside my other projects.
With that said, donations or not, I intend to see this story to the end, but as it stands, it'll probably take a while as you probably know well by now. So if you feel that my work is worth dropping a donation, then send me a note and I'll give you my paypal information.
Thanks for your time and continued patronage; it really is appreciated.
