Good news first, I was sort of promoted! I am now in charge of running my new school’s site, blog, and parent-child feedback section in addition to the gargantuan task of developing curricula and seven hours of classes every day.
Now, for the bad news; what does this mean for the future of Crazy Sunshine?
Simply, I have no time to put into making webcomics like I used to. When I started drafting Crazy Sunshine, I was a little cog in the Japanese education system. Five years later, I have turned a temporary assistant position into a full-time career.
I am in the middle of finishing up the little cliffhanger arc that I started last year – releasing it in a week or two – but after that, I will be focusing on changing the direction of Crazy Sunshine entirely.
I have no intention of abandoning the universe and its crazy characters. Instead, I would rather the site move away from the standard webcomic format and focus more on developing the world and its inhabitants through a series of non-sequential excerpts. This will allow me to explore many different styles, hone my art skills, and really practice my underdeveloped writing ability, in my own time and at my own pace.
There’s lots of ideas on the back burner – with a few of them already being put into motion – in order to give old and new readers a reason to keep coming back to Crazy Sunshine and watch its world grow bit by bit.
For now, stay tuned for future blog updates as I will be rolling out major site and social media changes one by one!
Look forward to exploring the Surface one more time from the top!
