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 teaching position into a full-time teaching career.
I am in the middle of finishing up the little cliffhanger arc that I started last year – releasing it before the year is over – but when we roll over into 2016, I will be focusing on changing the direction of Crazy Sunshine entirely.
Don’t worry, I have no intention of abandoning the universe and its host of crazy characters. Instead, I would rather the site move away from the “standard webcomic” format and focus more on developing the universe, its lore, and its inhabitants through a series of non-sequential “excerpts”. This will allow me to explore many different styles and really practice my underdeveloped writing ability, in my own time and at my own pace.
The current comics will be taken offline, archived, and reuploaded as complete .zip files to view at any time. Look forward to it!
There’s lots of ideas running through my head, but for the time being, I need to tie up all these loose ends. 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, please be patient, and for the time being, stay tuned for future blog updates as I will be rolling out major site and social media changes near the end of the year.
Look forward to exploring the Surface one more time from the top!
