Welcome to yet another brand new Crazy Sunshine! Here’s what’s changed!

Website

  • Hosting was upgraded from shared storage to cloud storage in order to improve site speed, performance, uptime, and security via SSL!
  • In addition to this, Crazy Sunshine is now running on a brand new 100% responsive mobile and tablet friendly theme!
  • A carousel has been added to the Home page, displaying a revolving list of recent blog, excerpt and art entries.
    • Newest entries will be displayed to the left.
    • The carousel can also be manually controlled by swiping through entries or by pressing the forward/back buttons to the top right of the screen.
  • The social media sidebar has been moved to the Links page.
  • The blog archive has been added to the bottom right of each page, along with a handy category-specific archive to the bottom left.
    • You can also navigate through a specific category at the bottom of individual posts, sorted by upload date.
  • Fan art and comics submitted by readers can now be viewed through a new, responsive gallery and lightbox on the Extras page.
    • Click, swipe, or use your keyboard’s arrow keys to navigate through the gallery.
    • Clicking or tapping the image allows you to view it in its natural resolution.
    • Pinch and zoom gestures, along with full screen mode are available on all mobile and tablet devices.
  • The Crazy Sunshine comic archive has been removed and replaced by The World of Crazy Sunshine.

The World of Crazy Sunshine

The World of Crazy Sunshine is a collection of non-sequential excerpts, revolving around the lives of the original cast and the universe they live in. That’s right, Crazy Sunshine is returning to its gag strip roots again!

With brand new stories and retconned characters, these periodic entries have replaced the original webcomic series as an archive of continuously evolving creativity.

You can learn more about The World of Crazy Sunshine here, or jump right into the action here!

Art

In addition to Crazy Sunshine excerpts, I will be uploading all other illustrations and side projects to the brand new Art gallery!

Categories include:

  • Original Art
  • Fan Art
  • Works in Progress / Sketches

(For businesses, please see the Portfolio page!)

Sister sites & old comics

  • Streaming and Social Media sites have undergone similar theme changes.
  • With the release of The World of Crazy Sunshine, the outdated Crazy Sunshine Wikia has been closed.
  • The Crazy Symphonium forum has also been closed due to inactivity.
  • The Crazy Sunshine TVTropes page has been edited to reflect new changes. Thanks for all your additions!
  • The Crazy Sunshine Patreon page has been completely renewed. If you like what you see, why not give a donation? Thanks to everyone who has donated so far!
  • The original Crazy Sunshine webcomic series is available for download at the bottom of the Extras page. You’ll need something like this to extract them!

Bug fixes & additions

  • Multiple outdated blog entries have been removed.
  • Multiple broken links and images have been removed.
  • Many new images have been added to previous blog entries.
  • Affiliate sites which are no longer active have been removed from the About page.
  • Other webcomics and art friends who no longer update have been removed from the Links page.
    • If you would like your site listed here, follow me on Twitter and let’s get to know each other!
  • A small Legal blurb has been added to the About page. Please read it!
  • A Gaming Blogs section has been added to the Links page.

Apologies for the colossal wait, but I really hope you enjoy this version of Crazy Sunshine as much as I enjoyed making it!

Stay tuned and, as always, thanks for all your incredible support!

  1. Oh, I’d been wondering when this would be coming back. Feeds showed up 18 days ago, but it was in an older folder that I check less frequently. Guess I’ll bump it back up.

    And, welcome back Jkun :)

  2. I know i might not be the only one to ask but would it be possible to add a link to this site that leads to your old work from 2005 and up before you had to shut down and over haul everything but don’t get me wrong i love the direction your going but i also loved your older work and can’t find it anywhere to read and would like to read it again so please respond if you plan to if some thing else might be the issuse, regardless of that please get back to me as soon as you can

  3. Glad to see everything’s back up and running! Hope to see more good shit like always! Also I’ll let you know next time I actually have time for some FFXIV if you’re still playing that.

  4. hm.. i tried that and nothing worked it just links me to a page full of gibberish when i click 1 of those 3 links

    1. Since they are all compressed into .rar files, try right clicking ‘Save As’. You’ll need a way to unzip them on your PC once they’ve downloaded!
