CUEK #

It took me three days to draw this toilet

After one year and four months of updating five days a week, it finally happened: I missed a comic update. I wanted to do something cool for comic #1000, and I ran out of time -- I didn't even get to start it! The last few months I've been able to precariously balance parental responsibilities and comic work, but frantically trying to finish the comic in the wee hours of the morning two minutes before update time was fine for 20-year-old-me, but 30-year-old-me is wrinkled and dying.

I'll be taking a short break for the next week or two to get my schedule in order. During that break, these things are going to happen:

  • I'm going to work out a happy a balance between doing dad/houseband (house husband) stuff, and comic stuff
  • I'm going to return to my old schedule where I dedicate different days to write, sketch, ink, and shitpost, which allowed me to pump out 5-7 comics a week and build up a buffer
  • I’m going to fix a few outstanding problems on my website
  • I'm going to finish comic #1000 which is gonna be super cool because it's gonna be all interactive and shit

I hope yall understand. Thank you for sticking around and being patient with me while I figure things out. Much love as always.

In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding the comic (or anything really), send them my way or comment down below. I've seen other artists do Q&A comics, and I'd love to give it a go!

Oh yeah, one last thing: some of you sick fucks joined because you wanted to see nude photos of my cat but I haven’t delivered yet because it was a joke but I never want to have it said that Enzo is a liar so here you go perverts

    Hi,

    Spring break is here (or recently happened), and summer break will arrive before we know it!

    I think it's important for kids to enjoy their much-deserved breaks, but just as important is making sure they're still learning so that they're ready to go when school starts again. Would you agree?

    If you're open to receiving guest content submissions for your site, I'd love to write an article for parents who want to keep their child’s mind going during breaks. The piece will include ways for parents to help their kids with their studies. I'll also talk about how arts & crafts/hobbies can help provide a healthy outlet for students and improve their focus on school. I'll elaborate on this point by including a tip on updating/modifying your home to include a space for arts/crafts/hobbies.

    What are your thoughts on this piece? Would this topic be of interest to you?

    Thanks so much.

    Kris

    Why did you decide to call this comic cheer up emo kid

    Dude! A NSFW tag would have been really helpful.
    Was scrolling down when a coworker entered and saw me looking at nude cat pics...
    So embarrassing, will probably never stop hearing about this.

    Best Regard 🙂

    Personally I'd be more happy with gaps (days of no uploaded comics) then you getting burnout/feeling that it's to munch work and quitting. I'm more then happy for you to order what you need to to keep this going and have a happy wife and child

    I was going to make a comment in jest about Enzo being lazy, but really I don't have it in me.
    You're doing great pal. Take it easy.

    #Q&A Hey Enzo what is your cat's name?

      When we first got her, her name was Amelia, but I decided her name would be Pixel when I brought her home. I thought was being all cool and original giving her that name but to date I have found at least two other webcomic creators who have a cat named Pixel. There's probably more.
