Original Life is going on an indefinite hiatus. It's not an easy thing for me to do. I've realized how stretched I am, and it's not just about physical time, but the time spent thinking about new projects. Several things have lead me to this:

- The ideas for new stories and pages aren't satisfying to me and I find myself begrudgingly working to fill out my weekly quota, while I'd rather be working on other things.
- This is disheartening to me because I like having that avenue of creativity to keep out there. I just haven't had the place of mind to really be into creating it for the past several months.
- The only way to maintain the comic as it is would be to eat into the production of other things that I prefer working on, or to give myself no spare time to relax at all. I've found that when I make myself work on something, the quality suffers.
- I don't want to grit my teeth and force myself to produce pages I'm not happy with.

There's every chance I will update the comic sporadically as I come up with page and story ideas, instead of forcing myself to produce two pages a week regardless of what else I have going on.

1,210 webcomic pages in, I'm slowing down. Thanks for the continued support. You're great fans.

I'm sure you have some art that you just didn't like and never finished. That being said, would you say that it's impossible to work hard for a drawing or a series you don't enjoy?

Red Riding Hood/Wolf queen what is the next installment for this "series"?
Agrophias Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2015
He's released part 3 already but it's only available through his patreon. That seems to be essentially to only way to get his works now

So if you're only releasing on Patreon now, is your personal website essentially abandoned? Or will your works eventually turn up there for purchase too?

Don't know right now.

When is the next chapter of rise of the wolf queen coming out. Also, where can I view a full list of your comics and see your illustrations.

I release my work on patreon, now. Will be releasing comic back issues next year. If you're looking for comics for free, you can go around the internet, begging.
After (or better say If?) Original Life will be out of hiatus will it be released via patreon as well ?

  I read through Better days again, and I find it continues to inspire me every time I do, the characters are lovable and relatable on levels, and the expressions are well done. I'm a big fan of your work and I look forward to any future projects you've planned.

Hey, Jay! I read some of your comics and loved them. Hope you get a spurt of creativity. I wish a good day on ye.
