9th Sep 2020, 11:17 AM Still working on getting internet. New projects in the works.
Things have been slow. I've been adapting to my new living situation, getting things fixed up and ready for my projects and working like crazy on fixing things. I now have a desk setup, my PC is in working order and the only thing left is getting internet, which could be as soon as tonight. 

I've scrapped the novella idea in favor of putting time into the mainline comic series, as it seems that real life has started getting scarily similar to what my comic is portraying and I want to keep working on this thing while the iron of civil unrest is still hot. I've gotten messages from people asking about firearms and preparedness, I've had interest in possible merch and I feel like now is the right time to start making a brand for myself. If you follow my Instagram, you know I'm a firm believer in being prepared for the worst. Regardless of political views, prepping and training are your greatest asset in the current US political climate. The adage "Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it" seems to be more relevant today than ever.

So I'm announcing my side project; A YouTube channel. I've had it registered for a while, it's mostly been a repository for my dumb shit but now I feel like putting effort into it. I'm not going to be a vlogger, I'm not going to push products or tell you to buy silver or cure-alls, none of that. I'm not nearly charismatic enough for that, I've always been told I have a face for radio, actually. No, instead I'd like to put out content that will supplement the comic and discuss the subject matter I use in my comic. Guns, gear, media and small, in universe material. Think short, five minute long radio dramas from around the shattered union depicted in Stripped, along with a few little reviews and discussions on various pieces of gear, sprinkled with a few videos about films and music that I constantly use for reference. I might even do a few little videos about the characters if interest is great enough. 

Anyway, thanks for sticking with me through this. I will be coming back, and I'll be bringing this thing back to life. 

Keep the fire burning.

Title says it all. I'm in a place, I have my PC ready to go and I'm just waiting on internet access. We're back, bitch.
13th Aug 2020, 10:20 AM Stripped Going on Hiatus
Hey guys, I hate to bring down the mood, but some things have happened in my life which have led me to becoming homeless for the time being. Physically, I am ok. I'm still working, I have friends and family to rely on. I'm fine.

But I can't work on my comic when I have nowhere to plug in my PC, so it's with a very heavy heart that I am announcing this unscheduled hiatus. 

Mark my words, everyone; you will be getting more content. Just for right now, it's gonna be scarce. I might use the blog to put out some of the prose content I had lined up, since I've got a bit. 

​​​​​Peace, love and freedom, everyone. I'll see you all very soon.

AN APPEAL TO THE OPPRESSED. 

 

Dear Patriot, 

 

Look up from your hovel, your shack, your slum. Cast your eyes toward the blinding brilliance of the ivory towers of the Emerald City and observe decadence and ignorance manifest. They care not for your struggle to feed your family. They care not that you must rob, scavenge and kill to survive out in the forgotten wilds of Cascadia. They care not for you, dear Patriot. The bureaucrats, sat so comfortably in their offices atop these towers, have one thing in mind, and that is the bottom line. 

 

Since the birth of Cascadia, foreign powers have had vested interest in this region; Russia, our oldest sworn enemy, came to Governor General Sunderland in order to secure oil rights in Alaska. Sunderland, being the spineless profiteer he is, rolled over and took their money, effectively selling Cascadia's only satellite territory to Russia. Since then, Russian corporations  have been set up shop in America's last frontier and have begun subjugating your brothers and sisters. The free market is dead in Alaska, and this will soon be the case here in Cascadia proper. Small businesses, already crippled by regulation and taxes, will suffer even more when the Norvinsk elite get their hands on the reigns.

 

Cascadia is an experiment, a draconian system put in place to make the rich ruling class into untouchable Gods -and to turn human lives into fuel for them to use on their way to total control. 

 

However, there is an alternative, dear Patriot: Take up arms, join your fellow Americans, and work hand in hand to pull out the nails holding up everything they rely on. They can scream, they can shout, they can use their tanks and drones against their own people, but they cannot kill our desire to be free. Because as long as we are alive, freedom is alive.

​​Dear Patriot, live as your ancestors did;

Embrace Freedom.




 

23rd Jun 2020, 8:45 AM New Model + Update
Hey gang. Just stopping by to drop some information on the status of things. I've been working long hours recently which has led to a bit of a lull in updates, but I will be uploading tonight, as there are pages in the backlog ready to roll. 


​​​​​​Now, onto the fun stuff. A user named Wynet has pulled through for me and made a brand new model for Sam! This one includes a plate carrier with rifle mags on it, so Sam isn't running around with a PCC when a rifle is necessary anymore. 



She's got new hands that are much better to pose than the old ones, a new wardrobe of casual attire, and can actually hold a rifle without looking like a child. Special thanks to him for coming through on this!
