Things have admittedly slowed down on the production side of Volume 2. There could be a pretty exhausting list of excuses, but they all pretty much point back to one: I've been busy.
I'm now two months behind where I wanted to be at this point in the game, mostly working on buying the time I'll need to actually keep working on Volume 2.
The good news? I'm reaching some sort of light at the end of the tunnel. I have a few more projects that need tending to (the kind that actually pay bills) and pretty soon I should be able to kick things back into gear with Bonnie Lass.
That's not to say that the property has grown stagnant! On the contrary, I've recently gotten some new exposure for Bonnie, what with con season starting up. Word of mouth (and Twitter, and Facebook) brings in new fans when I least expect it.
What I'm really looking forward to is getting started on issue three of the second volume—nothing wrong with issue two (in fact it's pretty exciting if I say so myself!) but I ran into this unexpected hiatus near the end of that second issue and it's certainly not helped the momentum I had going. Starting fresh with a brand new chapter ought to catapult me back into the swing of things—there's a certain rush from starting an issue from scratch and racing the calendar that is rather self-fueling. Poor issue two's been sitting on the assembly line since some time in February (back when I was ahead of schedule) and it's just hard to pick it up and get back in the same groove with all the other work I've got going at the moment.
So fret not! Issue two's bound to wrap up sometime soon, and once I get rolling on issue three, I'm confident I'll be able to at least compartmentalize the rest of the process along with my other projects so that I'm back to cranking out Bonnie Lass pages at something of a respectable rate!
Till the next update, have a little sketch of Bonnie that I worked up today!
