    And I did pick up work in September. :) Working on it as we speak.
    It will take a good bunch of time until episode 2 starts, sorry people. But it will be good. I am changing something that will make the comic a lot prettier.

    I feel bad for the huge delay. Please enjoy this piece of concept art. It's Megans new outfit and hair!

    Working on the detail, I see! What's that on her head?

    Damn! Vainamoinen! Damn!
    I mean, damn! Vainamoinen!

    This is so cool, and I feel terribly bad for delaying and delaying Rocketmen. I am in the middle of a new school project, and its an even bigger one than last time. Also there's sweet Walking Dead stuff to do, so there is not much space for Rick and his ultra-brave crew.

    We dont want to cram things, we want to give that comic the attention it deserves and needs. So for now its frozen, and it annoys me that we (or more, I) stumbled into this situation.

    So we are rethinking our strategy, I try to find the right spot to have time and space for episode 2, and then we see what happens. It would be a bummer if after episode 2 theres another huge break.

    Thanks Vainamoinen again for that awesome picture! It sure motivates us to get things together. When I get home, I will hang it one the wall! Evidence-photo in a few days.

    Thanks!!!

    Life always gets in the way... I just hope you can find a good way around any circumstances that delay "Season 2".

    I also hope my subtly evil blackmail plan works right now:

    I painted this in full color and only made it a black & white picture afterwards. As soon as Season 2 begins, I'll upload the color version. Does that help a bit? :D :D

    Although black and white is more true to the series. ;)

    Do you have anything against my uploading this pic on my DeviantArt account?

    edit: this version will ease the printing. Also, it shows my mistakes very clearly, so don't tell anyone. :D

    Man, Vainamoinen!
    I promised evidence for hanging up your work, but I didnt get to that yet. I am barely home, mostly I am at the academy working on our new animaton-movie. But the Rick-pic is already printed out, lying right now on my desk!

    That Megan-pic is great, and its wonderful to see interpretations of the characters by other eyes. This is so awesome! Again, this stuff motivates us a lot, and we are looking forward to getting back on the comic when theres time!

    What I can tell you (since we noticed that we didnt mention that properly in the first comic) is that theres something bigger about the whole pixel-business than you may think. Also, its not connected to the flash movie at all.
    Looking at the first comic now, I wish we put in a moment that hints that Ricks hair may not be a fashion choice... theres only a tiny thing in episode 1, strip #19.

    Oh, and, oh damn, a few month ago I erased all the nice comments on the comic. Theres was a huge spam-flood, one comment every minute, and while cleaning up I accedently removed every comment. Damn.

    A good print. Even the photograph shows the relevant value distributions. And I was a little proud of those. They made the black & white version really readable, that's a first for me. ;)

    The loss of the RR-comments is a damn tragedy. What's an artist if no one comments on his work? I promise to fill up Season 2's comments both English and German. And I will motivate at least one friend of mine to do the same. Yes, the one with a framed, personalized Majus-signed Guybrush drawing on her bookshelf.

    I didn't expect you to ever comment on Rick's hairstyle again. That was like an allusion to, a remnant of the earlier work. But as you can see from my last sketch, the resolution problem from the Flash movie was still on my mind, and I found the idea charming that Megan somehow partook in Rick's revolutionary low-tech conspiracy. The fan art might of course be adapted to reflect any new flash-movie-conflicting information as it comes up in another comic strip season. :D

    Ah, for what it's worth... before some data loss just plain kills it... ;)
