Good news and bad news and some kinda okay news!

Hi everyone! This is Anayte and I have, as they say, both good news and bad news.

First the good news: I went to the printhouse to get the Chapter 2 books on Friday, and they are looking very nice! The cover matt laminate is nice, there are the right number of pages inside, you can see what happens in it and the text is sharp and everything! Haha.

The bad news: when I'd moved the books out from the elevator to the yard, I slipped on black ice and fell on my left side. On the way back home in the car I turned my wrist around and almost blacked out, and after getting home and debating about it with friends on skype I reluctantly agreed to go to the clinic and after a few rounds of waiting for different doctors they found a small fracture in the elbow end of one of those long bones in one's arm. And now I have a light version arm sling.
So... I kind of can't be drawing the comic on full force during this time I specifically assigned for myself to be drawing the comic on full force. What fun! I'm hoping the healing time won't be amazingly long, but even if it only lasts for two to three weeks, I have to assume it will affect the comic's schedule. I originally assumed I would begin publishing Chapter 3 sometime in late April, but I might have to move that estimate well into May. >:(

The sort-of-good news is that I can still make thumbnails for the comic with my right hand... and maybe even draw pages with my left if I'm careful about it. The colouring might be the biggest obstacle here because of the cintiq's angle?? I will try test my limits very sensibly and do my best not to ruin my drawing hand forever so I can keep on producing things beyond this crappy accident.

I hope you've had a somewhat less distressing weekend! Matti wants to be swift and is already packing the preorders, so that and thumbnails and maybe some Undertale is what we're getting up to today. Take care of yourselves, don't slip on ice like I do!

Oh, poor you! :-( It must hurt like crazy... I hope the recovery is smooth and fast - but in any case take it easy and don't sacrifice your health for the sake of the comic. If there is a break in updates, we will patiently wait for the next instalment of Tuomi's (mis)adventures.
Best wishes!

Aw :( I wish you get well soon. The fans of your comic will wait for new chapters, don't worry. Even if we have to wait longer, we don't mind - it's worth it! :) I am sending you a healing spell and I hope you will be alright soon :)
