DEAR FRIENDS,

Published on 2018-01-29

Hello, and welcome to my inaugural d.rip post! I'm so excited to be a part of this platform, and I'm very excited to start writing more about some of the behind-the-scenes stuff that goes into writing Pokey adventures.

This is a really new direction for me, as any of my long-time readers would know. From the start I intended for there to be an element of mystery around the work. The comic isn't publicly attributed to me, and I don't speak about the process. The reality is, of course, there is a process, and it's sometimes delightful, often mundane, but definitely something that a lot of people have asked me about over the years.

Well, thanks to d.rip, I'm going to start writing about how these comics spring into being, whether it's influences, inspiration, or even just outtakes that didn't make it into the final published comic. I'm hoping to write up a blog post a week, and with your support here, at least that many comics. We'll see how it goes!

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Steve
