Sleeplonger.org, Silent Hill Promise’s website, is in need of renewal as of the beginning of September. It costs me $100/year to maintain in its current form. As I am currently unemployed, if I do not reach this goal by the beginning of September, the website will be down indefinitely. After this goal is met I will set other monthly goals.
One page of Promise is drawn and posted every day, in response to reader commands from the previous day. It can not be drawn in advance, and takes up a good portion of my free time each day. Even with simple art, each page takes 1-4 hours to complete, every day.
I would really like to be able to earn some money for my art, and I ABSOLUTELY don’t want to let sleeplonger.org lapse.
So, last year, I had to move very suddenly out of state (which was a shitshow, and a whole other story). Spent a year living with my fiancee’s family, and we’re finally moving back to where I lived before (upstate NY) come August First.
Moving is pretty stressful, though I’m very excited about where we’ll be living. I’m trying to make sure the whole thing effects Promise as little as possible. There won’t be any comic the 30th 31st, 1st, and 2nd, however. After that, we should be back to a regular, daily schedule.
There are a lot of things going on for me right now, even aside from moving, but Promise is one of the biggest, most important things in my day, and I’m glad its a part of it, every day.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank everybody who reads Promise. I have to say, to see people taking the time to think and speculate about my tribute to the Silent Hill series makes me happier than you can imagine. It gives me the warm fuzzies. I won’t comment on any of the theories that are going around, because spoilers right from the author would be the worst thing ever. But thank you to everyone who gives Silent Hill even a moment’s thought.
