Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #735: Closed Off
These are the unfinished pencils at the moment… I'm a little overwhelmed by school and freelance work at the moment.
I hope to ink the strip in the morning or afternoon and update the image. Until then, you get to see how my pencils have loosened up recently. You can also see how I've — very recently — started to use Illustrator to do some of the precise/tight stuff that I don't enjoy doing by hand. Drawing with a ruler is no fun. I still ink this stuff by hand, though, so the finished pages look consistent.
So yeah. See you again later today, perhaps? Or Monday.
UPDATE (9/13, 10am): Well, you guys seem happy enough with the pencils, it seems, so perhaps I'll save inking them for a week when I'm not quite so overwhelmed. Thanks for bearing with me, humoring my rough pencils, and — as always — for reading.

I just purchased a new shipping module for The Multiplex Store that gives me more flexibility in setting shipping and handling costs, so US customers will see much better rates on all (physical) items in the Multiplex Store. If any of you guys in the US balked at the shipping costs before, be sure to check them out now.
Books are $5 for the first one then $1.50 per additional book (rather than $5 per book), saving you $3.50 if you order two books. T-shirts are now $4 for the first shirt (any size) and $1.50 per additional shirt. And sketches and other artwork are also $4 for the first item, then $1 per additional item.
Rates for international customers are unchanged; I still use USPS First Class International’s rates as they are quoted by the USPS without any additional markup.
Now is as good as any to pick up that copy of Multiplex: There and Back Again!
