Hey everyone,

It’s been a few months since I last updated the comic, and I truly am sorry for leaving you hanging.  I know it can be frustrating, even worrying, not to hear from creators you enjoy.  I want you to know that this isn’t an abandoned comic, I will come back and continue updates, but for right now I need to step back.  

Fritz has been going for ten years (in November) and I’ve finally hit a wall.  For ages the only thing I’d draw would be new pages, and they usually took me weeks to finish.  Its taken me so long to make this post because I have had a half penciled page sitting on my desk for weeks.  Every day I would look at it and think “today is the day!” but the process of drawing is really difficult for me right now.  I read recently that creativity is like a sponge, when you write/draw you’re squeezing out water onto the page, but you need to keep the sponge wet with inspiration.  Well, I’ve been running dry for a while now.  The combination of my own personal problems and the global pandemic we’re all suffering through have done me in.  

We live in a world full of tragedy and fear.  Globally, locally and personally.  I work a full time day job in a grocery store, and for the past few months it has been a nonstop stresser on my life.  When I’m off, all I can do is rest and try to unwind.  I don’t like to make excuses, but I’m trying to be kinder to myself so I can get myself and my family through the Pandemic.  I’m sure this is something everyone reading this can relate to, on varying levels.  Everything in 2020 has ground to a halt, including me hahah

I would love to keep going right now, but I need more time off.   I’m planning on coming back later in the summer, hopefully not too much longer.  If you want to see what I’m up to, and any art I’m working on, please follow me on Twitter!  I’m playing lots of Animal Crossing, and working on my art.  My DMs are open, if you ever want to get a hold of me.  

Thank you so for your continued support, stay safe <3
