I was calculating how long I need to do my comics yesterday. The hours stack up, they do; and that time is time that is not spent sorting out the hall/dealing with the kitchen/doing that Open University Course I'm still not sure I'm going to do. I think one of the attractions of social networking is that the time is spent in such tiny coin you never even notice it going.

It's the final furlong on the Kickstarter, and we're currently five off our stretch goal of 100 backers. If you know anyone who might make up the numbers, please give them a prod in the next 15 hours.

I spent most of my comics time last week making fliers and in hilarious negotiations with glittering comics luminaries over which night was still free in early November (answer, none of them). However, we finally found a date which was only a moderate clash:

Launch Poster Strumpet and ink + paper

See you there, do you know anyone who can play the trumpet, etc. etc.

Backed! Hopefully I'll see you at the launch party too. (Do I need to bring an invite or just turn up? Will there be a caper in my drink?)

I'm making a list and you're on it, but yes, just turn up :)

Oh, and regarding your tumblr post, Topshop are currently selling an amazing feather jacket. I was dead tempted (pricey, but cheap for a feather jacket) however, on trying it on, I looked like the person in you tumbler post, so alas, no jacket for me.

That really would complete the undead vulture look so perfected by Hilary Devey.

I totally looked like a stuffed chicken, gutted! I love the concept of a feather jacket, and the green sheeny feathers are amazing, but... I looked hilarious! GAH.

Oh and opera chicken man. Could it be rather literal version of Papageno from the Magic Flute?

I think so, though I suppose he might be dressed as a chicken for the sheer giddy heck of it!

Kickstarter ? Comics ? I'm persuaded.

thank you!

I wish I could contribute to the Kickstarter (I did so love Strumpet #1), but I am in a much more financially precarious position than I was when I contributed previously.

I don't suppose I could swap you some art (multiple prints) for a copy at some time in the future?

Sorry to hear that -- Strumpet swaps ahoy! I'll mail you when we've launched :)

Excellent! I look forward to it :)

I hope to be working very soon again, but it's been three months without work.
