Well, the first really long hiatus was because I was getting married and it was just easier to not do strips while planning half a million things.
Then after the wedding I was like, hey, it sure makes my life easier not doing strips!! I should totally do less!
Really, though, after doing 300+, I kind of felt like I'd exhausted every possible innocent misinterpretation of every raunchy statement. It was starting to feel like I was repeating myself, and I think a couple of times, I literally was. I couldn't bring myself to post anything that didn't make me personally laugh, and I started running out of those.
Although I still have not OFFICIALLY thrown in the towel (I reserve the right to post surprise updates!!), clearly my output is greatly reduced.
I'm sure the people over on Disturbing Auctions
would sympathize with you. I abandoned them first. But not before giving them a way to contribute
to the site, and keep it alive, as I've tried to do here as well.
Believe me, I get several emails a month from people who are just now discovering Spamusement, and practically begging me to make more.
I still love drawing
and humorous things, and would like to make another comic series someday that is completely different. I just haven't had a cohesive idea yet. A lot of half-ideas
, but nothing that's lit the proverbial light bulb.
I am constantly having ideas for projects
though (see also: Somniphobia
). They always last a few months to a year, then I burn out, hand it over to the community, and move on to the next shiny new project.
