I hope everyone’s enjoying this particular storyline. It’s not skating or hiking or climbing or anything, but it is, I think, fun. And I’m interleaving it with the two other story lines… so maybe you’ll get some kinda mayhem that doesn’t stem from Lowell’s issues. That’ll be nice, right?

And so Lowell digs himself in a little deeper. You can guess why he knows enough to have Mal’s computer shut off, and to get everyone into the break room.
Isn’t it nice to see old friends. Who then don’t recognize you. Even when you give them your name and the circumstances under which you met.
And then they throw a plot twist at you.
Yeah, it’s nice.
Lowell thinking. I haven’t checked, but I don’t think I’ve written a lot of that.
Also? Mixed metaphors are really, really hard to avoid unless you’ve got your eye to the storm. The shorthand that we use to tag things in our language lends itself to cut and paste recombobulating. Like an ostrich running it’s race down the roadway of literary baskets full of eggs.
Okay, now I really am back from Charlotte. Sold a few caricatures. Sold a few books. Got some more ideas about how I’m going to do conventions. I’ve also got photos of people wearing Costumes. I’ll try to have those up for you later.
So, as far as I know, I’m back from Charlotte. And hopefully there are a few new Hubris readers today, all relaxed now that they’ve gotten home with all their treasures from HeroesCon, and ready to start reading this new comic strip they found out about, waaay back at table #320 in Artist Alley. Right? Is that how YOU turned up here today? Welcome! You’ve got a little happy catching up to do, then I hope you’ll become a regular commenter because the commenters around here are fun. And some of them are apparently psychic, and know plot twists the very moment I write them down. It’s very unnerving.
Okay, I’m in Charlotte now. (At least, I will am supposed to have been already in Charlotte by now, which is then while I’m typing this) And my laptop is dead meat (before I went, you see, and I’m not replacing it yet) so updates might not come exactly on time. But there will be photos, I think. I always say that, and I always intend to post more of them than I do, but I’ll see what my phone can accomplish. Wish me luck.
I want to tell you, it’s very strange to pull my head back out of 2013 and the OutdoorFest. The book is uploaded and I’m waiting on the service to tell me it’s good to go. But it’s been, I dunno, kinda heartwarming to have fallen back into that story. Now, after three solid days of not seeing much else but the Outdoorfest, on top of all the fill-in cartoons that’ve been running here, to jump back to the current story is a little jarring.
But not for long. I got plans for everyone.
Welcome back to the Now, and I hope you have a taste for the Ol’ Outdoorfest soon.
Right. So we’re back to the in-fill cartoons and the book’s nearly done, art-wise. The last few comics are written, so unless some of you guys write in and tell me something that’s better than what’s already on paper, I’m racing for the finish line for the Stanky Creek book.
Extra comic! The extra comics, for those who don’t know, are because especially nice amounts have been dropped into the Tip Jar. There are a couple of ways to make sure Hubris lives here, and that’s one of them. Patreon is another. We’re five years in, now, and I think I have five years sort of figured out in advance. Meaning, I know what the final Hubris story will be in five years, and I like it. I want to get to tell it. If everyone who reads Hubris (like they say in the PBS fundraisers) gave a dollar a month (easily done on Patreon) then that five years would be extended out farther and Hubris would live on as long as you guys are patrons. On the other hand, Hubris is time consuming and it wouldn’t take a major catastrophe for me to have to back off and do more advertising work and less Hubris.
Wow. That got grim. Feel free to ignore the grim and read this instead: EXTRA HUBRIS CARTOON TODAY! I think I can have another for you on Saturday, along with your regular update tomorrow!!
