It's been two years...sorry guys, I didn't think drawing all these vegetables would take so long.

Seriously though, I stopped updating because I needed time to just adjust to life. I never considered sv on hiatus, because I always intended to start drawing again when I could.

I've been working. Back in 2012 I got my first job. SV continued to update at an extremely slow pace until 2014, when I reached the end of episode 4 and couldn't convince myself to pick up a pen again. I both needed to stop and adjust to life, and I quit drawing for a year because it stopped being enjoyable. Comics and drawing are hobbies for me. If I can't get enjoyment out of them, there's nothing riding on them and there's no reason to force myself.

This year for my birthday I got myself a surface pro 4 with the intention of using it for comics. The first 64 pages of sv are drawn in MyPaint, but there was nothing I could do to get it to work on the pro. A friend convinced me to try photoshop again, and it finally worked for me. So that's what I'm drawing this comic with now. I'm using a custom made brush :D

Before, this, I worked on a 5 page comic to warm up. If you would like to read it, it starts here.

I've been employed and on my own for 4 years and I feel that I'm finally starting to get the hang of life. It's time to start sv again. My goal is to update once a month, on either the last Thursday of the month, or the last day of the month, we'll see. (That's another thing - for the sake of this comic, I decided to try knitting. And it took over my life. Last Thursday of the month is knitting group and I get home late.) SV is meant to be read in chunks. Updating once a month will allow me to eventually post decent amounts in one go, and also stress out less about updating. And if anyone's ever unhappy about it, I can always be like, at least it's not every two years :D

This time there is unfortunately only one page, but next update should be on August 31st. See you then! (1/9/17)Obviously this didn't happen, but there will be more pages eventually.....
