The first bonus mailouts for GameSpite supporters were supposed to have gone in the mail a month ago. They haven’t, yet, and I feel lousy about that pretty much every single day. Truth is, the bonus magnets were ready a month ago; the mini-magazine was written and laid out a month ago. The problem, though, is that it needs a bit of art, and I swore off drawing a while back — for good reason, since my artwork was never great to begin with and has degraded horribly over the years. But it needs a cover, and it would feel false to have someone else draw it, so I’ve been stalled out at the point actually committing pen to paper.
The good news, I guess, is that I finally choked back my bile long enough to hack something out tonight. While it’s not particularly good, at least it’s done and I can get this issue out of the way soon. (And put the second one on its proper schedule. And give it a cover made entirely with text.) Anyway, my apologies in advance to any children or pets who are left emotionally scarred by the sight of the results.
