Schedule Change
At the end of the current chapter, coinciding with the end of the month, Pictures of You will be dropping back to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday update schedule for the foreseeable future. Reluctant as I've been to make this change, it's been a while coming. Pictures of You is not a financial success by any stretch, nor is its audience vast. While a small number of folks have been sincerely and incredibly supportive, the truth is that the money coming in doesn't equal the time going out.

I've seen it argued that we who make comics sully ourselves and our work by trying to make money, and that we should make comics for the love of making them, for pure art. You can argue that this is true, and many people do make comics simply for the love of making them, but knocking yourself out and keeping a frequent schedule is not that, and making them doesn't necessitate showing them. I don't have time or spare mental stability to do this for free at this pace anymore. The comic will still be made, it will still be posting, just less frequently.

I didn't want this, I've been proud of my update schedule and would like to see it return to the M-F or even daily posting. Make no mistake, this is a personal setback for me and for the comic, but the choice became to slow it down or stop altogether, whether for an extended hiatus or forever. I chose the former because it's important to me to finish this story. I've bled and cried for this story, made and lost friends over it, met my spouse through it, not to mention the amount of sleep traded for pages.

I keep trying to find a point to what I'm saying, but maybe there isn't one. Maybe it's just rough news. Maybe it's just what I feel I have to do. I suspect most people understand why. Maybe there's consolation in that. Maybe not. Who knows?

This change won't affect backers of the Pictures of You Patreon who will continue to see the same amount of comics in their monthly PDFs. I'll take a minute here to point out that anyone who backs us with even a buck a month gets the monthly comics. I suppose folks who don't think the comic is worth a dollar a month probably shouldn't be too upset about being able to read it less often. But for those who do love it and want to keep reading it at the same pace, maybe a dollar isn't too much.

The Romantic Junkies and Patreon
By now you've probably seen the beginning of Book Six, The Romantic Junkies, and are guessing as to what's going to unfold in this chapter, though we may have some surprises yet in store for you. We're past the half-way point in the series now, and events are...underway.

In the time we were down, those few months beginning the year, we were able to get back up to speed after the loss of notes and script for the next few books. We were also able to regroup energy and inspiration to push into the second half. While not everything is the same as it was before, the basic plot is still unfolding as planned and we've put the details back together in a way that excites us. Hopefully it'll live up to everyone's faith.

Thanks again to everyone who flooded us with well-wishing and shows of support. We know we lost some readers in the hiatus, it's just a truth of online updating that people get lost when there's downtime. Most of you stuck with us, though, and others will find their way back. We like to think we'll be able to find some new readers this year as well, so we keep on.

A big development for us too is our new Patreon campaign, where readers can help support the creation of the story. Our Patreon is essentially a monthly tipping effort, where supporters (or Patrons) can send us a little money each month, and those little monies turn into bigger monies that let us buy material and internet access and, well, food. We know not everyone can afford to send us big cash or the cost of books, but even a single dollar a month helps. And as our way of saying thank you, there's an extra thank you that is exclusive to Patrons, something different every month.

We hope you'll visit our Patreon at and consider dropping a few coins into our hat. Every dollar is appreciated.

Cheers, and thanks again!
