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.

Hello ^//^ your art is super duper cute
I was wondering if you'd like to AT with me?
I know i'm not at your level (because your art is amazing *u*) but i really want 2 custom anthro couple for my boyfriend and i for this valentines. I'm terrible at coming up with creative anthro designs and i really want a couple from you... but i literally only have 10 points

I noticed you've got some new pages to Original Life up. That's so exciting! Is it returning back to a regular schedule? I really hope so.

Most awesome, I'm so excited to read Original Life again. I loved the Better days series and was so freaked out when OL went on hiatus. Really really glad it's back

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"?

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
