|WHERE IT ALL BEGINS|
REAL TALKI realize that it's been months since I've updated (I honestly didn't think people still appeared here, what with the current arc of Sky Avenue book 2 (thought I was boring everyone with it TBH)) but it's been brought to my attention that some people are wondering where the hell I've been. Well, in not so many words, I've been working a LOT. Like 40 plus hours a week at times and right now, while I'm trying to save up for my house, the more money, the better. This comic, as I have said in the past, does NOT make me money. I don't get paid anything for this comic and I just cannot upkeep a Patreon right now either.REAL TALK by oh-no-melon
But I am maintaining the idea that I will be back to updating my comics come the new year.
We'll see though. I am very sorry for not updating more but that's the sucky part of being an adult; gotta work to pay bills and work is very demanding of me and it won't get any better until after the new year. We're coming quickly upon the holiday season and that means hell time in re
UPDATEI first want to offer my sincere thanks for all those who commissioned me or spread the word that I was in need of commissions in order to stay afloat! All of your kindness really helped me during that rough time.UPDATE by oh-no-melon
I would like to let you all know how things are going and that my disappearance from almost all online media has been due to good reasons. Firstly, my husband has a new job that is pretty awesome but keeps him very busy; I see him maybe 2 days a week for longer than an hour. I, myself, have a job as well. Not a new job but, in fact, my old job. The long and short of it is the manager who caused me a lot of discourse and a lot of angst has been terminated from the position. Apparently the company frowns upon losing several staff within the period of 2 weeks, especially staff that have been there as long as I have. The new temporary store manager was gracious enough to give me back my job but since I started it 2 weeks ago, things have been hopping. I mean utterly non-sto
HELP! SEEKING EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS (UPDATE 7-1)Hello everyone! I wanted to post an update to my husband and I's current situation and let you all know how things are going.HELP! SEEKING EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS (UPDATE 7-1) by oh-no-melon
As of right now, my husband is in line for a new job! Excitement! It's still in the starting process; background check and things like that but those will pass with flying colors and he'll be starting here within the next week or two. Unfortunately, since his new job is affiliated with the city (ooh la la fancy boy!), paychecks only come around once a month so even when he starts working, money will be tight for us.
Secondly, I am on hold for my own job hunting. My old job of 5 years has... certain events happening and while it looks highly likely they will hire me back (pray for me that they accept my pay raise as well), things are taking a little longer due to this being the busiest time of the year for them and it may just take a little longer for me to go back to work.
Ultimately, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who commissioned me! It truly
RECENT DISAPPEARANCEHey everyone! If you haven't noticed, I vanished again for a few weeks but I have a legit reason for it.RECENT DISAPPEARANCE by oh-no-melon
I HAVE A NEW JOB!
So until I get things situated with my new job (and being done with my last job) I may not update pages. So probably a few more weeks if all goes well. I start officially on Saturday of this upcoming week but maybe I can sneak in a page here and there when I have time. My new job offers me an hour for lunch and it honestly takes me like 10 minutes to eat so I'm thinking that will be 50 minutes of comic time!
So please be patient while I get this new chapter of my life underway. It's not a glamorous job, it's not a fancy job, but it offers me more hours than my last (with a slight pay decrease but really the hours will make up for it) and I have a chance to move ahead within the company.
I'll see you soon!
|SO MUCH STUFF I WASTE MY TIME ON. BUT I LOVE IT SO <3|
I like to think one day, I'll do comics for a living.
Other than that, I'm the Melon. I draw comics and I work a part time job to pay the bills. I'm actually pretty comfortable in my life right now and though I don't exercise as much as I should and I worry too much, I think I got a decent gig going on.
Let's keep going at this thing together! Making a comic doesn't take one person; it takes us all!
