Archive complete...Posted on 21/03/2009 at 07:03:34 by MakTheYak
That's it folks, with this comic the archive is complete. I have (to my knowledge) archived on this site every single piece of sequential or series-based artwork I have produced to date.
Of course this excludes the countless doodles that I have produced over the course of my years in this life but if they are any good I have no doubt they will make it in some form into a comic.
I had set myself the goal of having started drawing comics again regularly by the time the last of The Yaks went up. I've been posting the Yak pictures up every Saturday for the past 24 weeks which gave me almost 6 months to get my act together and yet other commitments keep getting in the way. The Yaks took about 20-30 minutes to clean up from the original scanned artwork from over 10 years ago so it wasn't that which was taking up my time.
Over the next 11 days I hope to get some of my other commitments out of the way. This isn't to say I will be able to start drawing again in 11 days but I hope to be a good step closer. If I pull it off it's going to be ace!
Before I start drawing again I want to have an ace site to put it on. The current version of The Yak Shack is great but as a programmer it's old and outdated. I'm surprised I've managed to get so many jobs based on my web development skills with it in my portfolio and so it needs a bit of redevelopment to bring it up to date. Once I've done that I will be ready to start pumping out the toons again, which really encourages me to get on and get it done!
News is sporadic here at best and so if you're interested in keeping up to date but want it to be with the minimal amount of hassle just register and make sure you choose to receive the email updates, or subscribe to the RSS feed. And don't worry, the new site will even have bits explaining what RSS is for the uninitiated!
