As mentioned previously, there will be no comic update this week. But, it ain’t all grim news. The above illustration represents another big project knocked off my schedule. Only a few more to go and my focus will be back on the comic full time. So, return next monday for Astray3 chapter 3 page 35. After that, it’ll be about two more updates till the end of chapter 3.
About the above illustration, it will be the cover for an art booklet I’m creating for the upcoming Death Ray Expo. ( https://gocattywampus.com/ ) The event will be the debut of the book. However, if you can’t attend the show, the booklets will be sold online shortly afterward. And there will also be some other big surprises for sale around the same time. ( Shhh…it’s a secret. ) I’ll keep you posted here.
Sorry to say there will be a brief delay for Astray3 chapter 3 page 34. Instead of waiting for Thursday, I’ll be posting the comic when it’s finished. Should be Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest.
In further news, there will not be a comic update next week. I need to finish up work on an art book(let) that has to be sent to the printers by the end of next week. Yes, an art book(let). It’ll be a mish-mash of miscellaneous artwork I’ve created over the previous year. There will be some Astray3 artwork in there too. Initially, these will only be available at the June, 29th Deathray Expo. Afterward, there will be a temporary e-shop for you internet folks to obtain a copy. The artbooks will be a limited run. So, once they’re gone they’re gone. Also, expect some fancy art prints to trade for your money papers.
A quick update for this week. First the good news, I’m finally wrapping up some of my side projects. This will allow me to again focus on comic production. Bad news, there won’t be a comic update this week. With all the extra work I haven’t made any progress on page 34. I hope to have the next update ready by Monday.
And with some luck, there will be extra goodies to show too.
No, Astray3 update this week. I’m working on the second chapter cover this week and want to get us back on the Monday schedule. Thus, look for a new comic update coming on April 8th. We should be wrapping up chapter three this month. After that, there may be a short break due to the sheer amount of new designs needed for chapter four. Astray3 chapter four will be a doozy. A lot of threads will be coming together and old friendships will be renewed. Look forward to it.
Today’s update will be postponed until this evening. The art and most of the lettering is done. However, I’m still fine-tuning some of the writing. Sorry about the delay. Who knew it’d be so hard to write for an overgrown parrot?
This will be another Thursday update week. Yes, the delays continue. I’m trying folks, but there is a ton of work to get through before this train gets back on track.
On a positive note, I’ve finally dropped a bunch of designs on the Patreon page. About six character designs with a short paragraph going into depth about each one. Worth checking out for background story info. They might also give you an idea about why some updates take longer than others.

And as an added bonus, here are some Procreate pics I worked on last week.
