Magnetic North http://magnorth.net a weekly dose of "the hell'd I do that for?"

Not ASoIaF creepy-Lannister-close, but still a little too close for kids who used to pitch each other into piles of fresh cowpatties.

So! The next 6 weeks are going to be trial and error around here. A dear friend of mine is getting married in the beginning of November, and I’ve been commissioned to do the cake! Woo! So I get to spend a lot of free time running around Seattle finding supplies and even more time [...]]]>
Steve and Lisa are kind of overly close. Not ASoIaF creepy-Lannister-close, but still a little too close for kids who used to pitch each other into piles of fresh cowpatties.

So! The next 6 weeks are going to be trial and error around here. A dear friend of mine is getting married in the beginning of November, and I’ve been commissioned to do the cake! Woo! So I get to spend a lot of free time running around Seattle finding supplies and even more time in my kitchen remembering how to hold a piping bag and making gumpaste sunflowers.

So what does this mean for the comic? I have no idea. It might mean every other week comic updates with art in between, it might mean a comic every Sunday. It might mean that awesome people send me fanart or guest strips? (Hahaha. I have no hope of this ever happening when I ask for it.) Just keep checking back on Sundays, I guess. I’ll have something for you regardless of what it is, I promise.

So I want to do a bit of an experiment this week. It’s entirely self-indulgent, so don’t feel obligated to participate. Basically, I’d like to separate my human traffic from my russian sexbot traffic (I wish I could say that was a joke, but the russian bots love me because of Yosef and Nikolai). If you’re human, just leave a comment on this blog post, say something like how you found MagNorth or something. If you’re a bot, well, you’ll get caught by my spam blockers. If you’d prefer, my email’s at the bottom of the page.

I’d also like to know where to spend my advertizing monies, so this little experiment really does have a purpose besides my own curiosity.

Whether you participate or not, know that if you’re human, I appreciate whatever glances you give to Magnetic North on whatever basis you do. I enjoy the illusion of numbers that people are reading my work.

-Kat

You will get no more Chuck Norris jokes here.

Sorry about the radio silence last week, guys, I was having…issues. With my cat. And his inability to understand what does and does not constitute his litter box.

Anyways, a bit of trivia for you. Originally, Jugsy’s hair was the same color as Judith’s. Actually, it WAS the same color as Judith’s. On my personal color-fucked monitor and nowhere else. By the time I got around to posting pages and seeing the colors on a different monitor, I already had the first 3 or 4 pages and cover done and didn’t really care to go back and fix it. It was equal parts laziness and the orange growing on me.

A Case Of Brains

I could have taken one of several real life horror stories from my retail days and put them into that third panel. But that would have stretched the scene farther. And I really don’t think anyone wants to know about the day that a box (as in, the shipping box) of Vagisil powder exploded all over me. That was a pretty traumatizing day in a horrible week.

Also, I’ve heard rumors that my old bosses from that store know about and read this comic. So let’s just leave that panel as “mind-numbing”.
