Hiya Readers,

 

I hope this meets you well. I’d first like to thank you for being readers of JAND. It means a lot to me that I’ve been getting to share what’s goes on in this weird mind of mine. It’s amazing that after a year of publishing this on the Internet I still get people reading religiously. It’s an awesome feeling. Thank you.

 

So I don’t know if many of you know my main “hustle” is painting and writing. This comic is my side hustle. So I noticed since I started publishing JAND, the comic has taken so much of my time, I spend 4 days about an average of 15–20 hours a week on it and it is making my painting and writing suffer.

A digital painting I did of Nelson Mandela.

 

Also another issue I’ve run into is generating income through the comic. I’m aware comics take a very long time to start getting cash flowing in but I can no longer continue to spend a lot of money on something that isn’t paying me much.

 

I thought of holding off on the comic temporarily.

 

But I know some of you guys would “kill” me.

 

But I also really enjoy creating JAND and I love your responses (Yes I read all your comments) towards the characters. I especially love JAND characters and I wouldn’t want to hold off telling their story.

So my solution (for now at least) as I try to re-strategize is to update ONCE a week.

 

I’ll be uploading a comic strip every THURSDAY. If most people prefer Mondays just leave a comment and I’ll change it.

 

Thanks for understanding everyone. Have a lovely week.

 

Take care,

Modé

 

P.S. I highly recommend getting your updates via email now, since it’s once a week. Subscribe via email on the side bar (navigation)

  1. Your digital painting is really nice. Isn’t there a way people get to pay to read? And as of the new development I’ll prefer Monday.

  2. Thanks for keeping JAND. Maybe you should consider selling JAND materials such as shirts, caps, cups, phone cases et. al. I really love JAND!!!

  5. No no no Mode! We wee not take eet! (In Orubebe’s voice)
    I can hardly bear with Mondays and Thursdays and now you want to make it just once a week??? Ahn ahn! Not fair! Lol! I remember when you started and doled out new strips daily.
    Don’t mind me, I’m just being a spoilt sort. I understand your plight. I’m kind of in that sort of stage too where work has overtaken my interests (drawing and writing); I digress.
    Keep up the work and I wish you all the best!

    PS I prefer a Thursday update!
