The “Fairy Shark Mother” from my upcoming children’s book.
I’ve decided to put A Penny Dreadful on hiatus while focusing on the children’s book I’ve been writing and illustrating for the past year. I hate to put everything on hold before it’s even reached the real meat of the story (where are the pirates?! I thought this was a pirate comic!!!), but I promise I’ll return to Illustrating Kit, Arlo, and a bevy of as-yet-unrevealed character very soon.
Well, after months of distractions — including again returning to the ranks of the unemployed, re-employment, working on two different children’s book projects and just plain old procrastination — I’ve knuckled down just long enough to bring you five — yes five — new APD pages. Hey, you’ve earned it, America.
It’s been a long few months of unemployment, job searches, job finding, new job learning, and comic-not-updating, but A Penny Dreadful isn’t gone just yet! We’re getting back into the flow, starting with two new pages before the and of the year!

I’ve kind of dropped off the web comic map a little over the past month or so. Between job hunting and home repairs, I’ve had less time to work on A Penny Dreadful than I’d expected.
BUT! That should be over soon, and I hope to have more pages available in the near future.
In the mean time, enjoy a video of me in all my unemployed glory:
A hundred may not seem like much, but it’s an important mile-marker on our way up. In addition to that, our last update for June has become our most clicked-on to date, racking up more than 400 views on the first day alone, so some of you out there are clearly spreading the word! Thanks!

As Kit and Arlo settle in to their new surroundings, tension builds downstairs.

After a complicated couple of months trying to get our backgrounds modeled, we’ve finally posted three brand new pages.
Our heroes, Kit and Arlo are thrust further into their strange, new surroundings, including their new bedroom in a cold, barely furnished attic.
