Here's the first of my cameo pages. From this page I learned that I hate drawing big groups of people even more than I hate being in them.

In order of appearance:
Oliver from This Hostile Universe
Gary Carpenter upcoming in atypical webcomic
Feneryos from Black Gate
Kally from KEXX: Emmalence of the Realms
Maria from Holding Pattern
The Chief from Protoculture
Andrew from Autumn Bay
Daphne Upcoming in Xenobiosis

Big thanks to all the lovely folks that put their characters into my clumsy hands.

I've got a couple more folks showing up on the next page.

I was down and out with the flu for the better part of this past week so I couldn't really get anything done. Either for my comic or for anything else in my life.

My buffer is officially gone. I'm about 3/4 through the next page so you should expect to get that one on time. After that, I've got some lovely fan art coming up for next week that I'm sure you'll enjoy. Meanwhile, I'm taking some time to visit upon the fundamentals of art and I'm going to try to rework my style to something that might be less attractive but will be more fundamentally "mine".

The dog in panel 5 is modeled after my old dog Seneca. I really enjoyed drawing him.

Loving the cameos here. What's most important on the art front is that it's yours and natural to you.

Thanks. I'm going to have a serious battle with my OCD but I've made the conscious decision for what I need to do.

Oh! The cameos! I'd forgotten about these. It's cool seeing them all here.:D
(Hope you feel better!)
(Totally agree with ProfEtheric too; your comfort with your style is the most important thing ;D)

Thanks. I'm mostly on the mend now.

Hopefully in a few weeks I'll have something fun and new and a little easier to put together.

I guess this jungle guy made a successful trip to Xibalba once?
I barely remember the events that he was involved in earlier in the comic.
I hope you get better from the flu.
they say to eat chicken soup and drink lots of fluids and juice, like orange juice especially.
Take care.

Nah, he's on his way. If he succeeds he won't have need to return there again.

Thanks. I'm mostly better now. Just a cough that sounds worse than it is.

I almost heard them greeting each other.
Excellent job.

Thanks! I didn't realize the peculiar task of putting together a silent side story

The new layout is Awesome, Xibal. Also loving how the art gets amazing with each page.

Keep up the great work!(Marcus is still hilarious!)

Thanks! The layout was done by EcM and I'm so psyched about it.
I'm hoping to do more Marcus interviews in the near future.

It's also interesting to see the village at work like this in addition to the cameos.
