A UPDATE

2015-07-11 17:00:22 by HappyHarry

A brief update for anyone who cares to read it!

Since March of this year I've been chipping away at a new Starbarians episode which I think will be out by August*. The whole thing feels like a big obligation to follow up on what can laughably be called the "story", which started back in episode 2. The amount of time that has passed between releasing Starbarians 1, 2 and 3 is just absurd, and it was obviously a  big mistake to think that a webseries with 4 minute long episodes, produced at the speed of one-whole-second-per-day could ever gain something that felt like momentum. That said, I am resolved to finish what I started and get 3, 4 and 5 done, even if it takes me nine lifetimes.

I am staying just barely afloat at the moment doing one-off art commissions (see an example below). The original price of these climbed from $15 to $45 as I realised that some of these illustrations were taking me two whole days to complete. Now I realise that even charging $100 per fully coloured illustration is probably too little for that amount of work but I don't want to scare people off with high prices, so the next batch will probably be priced around $60 and be announced on my twitter soon.

My plan after accepting another fat batch of commissions and finishing Starbarians 3 is to change gears in a big way. I'm resigned to the fact that I will have to eat my own words and launch a Patreon campaign in the hopes of turning my cartoons in to much better earners that can sustain me and my humble lifestyle. If that happens, I'd like to mix it up by producing animation at the level I've established in Starbarians (gotta get to ep 5 at least!) sprinkled with some more stylish but simple stuff akin to Dr. Bees and Bo-Starr.

The holy grail of monthly cartoons and a bank account that isn't perma-overdrawn remains my mission. I think the next few months will be good.
