Jake's birthday

June 22 was Jake's birthday! It was/is a busy week so I didn't get to make a refined picture, so here's a scrappy drawing instead. It feels like it has been a while since i last draw him; I actually forgot to draw piercings until I flipped to some other pages in my notebook and saw older drawings I had of him. Usually when I think of Jake I'm chanting 'crybaby jock' in my head. He wouldn't appreciate that, though I don't mean it in a bad way (it's a literal label, given how things go in the comic). OF course I had to draw the raccoon again!

Unrelated to anything else, I've been really into shoebills, especially since seeing a Miyako Kawaguch kei fabric pattern, and then later some weird videos about the machine-gun-beak clatter sounds that a shoebill makes. You can see the shape of their trachea through the back of their mouth sometimes...which I personally think looks disturbing, but interesting nonetheless!

A week ago, I dug out my old Come For A Drink game files off my external hard drive, because a couple of people asked about how to get all the endings. Had to dig around the old code to remember what logic I had programmed, but I managed to write up a guide to all 9 endings! This game continues to be extremely embarrassing and amazing at the same time, but I feel that way about everything I make.

Recently Paypa| decided to freeze our Love Love Hill account, so we took the store down for a while to figure things out/research our options.

More reasons why I am scaling back and opting for Stripe over Paypal as much as possible.

Yah I mainly heard the horror stories re: Paypal, but this is my first time having issues with them personally. Have you been happy with Stripe?

I've been really happy with Stripe thus far. I haven't had any issues with them.
