As the title says, I'm cranking these out slower than I would like to, mostly because school has been keeping me more busy than I anticipated. Progress is being made, but it's gonna be a bit slow until the end of March. Either way, thanks for your patience, and sorry that these are taking so long! ^^;

Hey, is there any chance you could explain what made you decide to veer so far away from the stuff you did as broken teapot? I've been trying for years to make sense of it myself but I've only become more and more confused. I'm sure you've probably gotten really tired of explaining it, but I just can't make sense out of any of your previous explanations.

Eh, I was mostly sick and tired of making video game jokes all the time, and I wanted to try and distance myself away from my old fetish work, which to be honest I'm still kind of embarrassed about. I also wanted to improve my artistic abilities, and I figured the best way to do that was to make a new account and start with a clean slate. Hope that clears a few things up for you, but if you have any more questions then feel free to ask away! ^_^

It doesn't clear up much... I'm trying to figure out why you seemed to have distanced yourself from humor overall, and why you stopped nosfera, since it was the series that could have benefited most from losing the video game parody angle. The best bits of that comic were when you WEREN't making fun of castlevania. You said you left broken teapot to allow yourself more freedom to do your own thing, but most of what I've seen of you work on this account is commissions for others. More so than you did on your old account. and those commissions are for the exact things you say you wanted to get away from. While I can admit your art has improved, that was already happening before you switched accounts.  You excelled at making Gothic horror elements look appealing and friendly, but you stopped working on your Gothic horror comedy series... You were great at making fun of the simplest of elements in gaming, and now all of your jokes about video-games fall flat.
Then there's your Lou ghastly comic... it's good, closest thing I could find to your old stuff. But it feels like you could have done the same sort of thing with the nosfera cast(minus the belmont guy).
I can't help but feel that the only things you left behind were the best parts of your writing.
I dunno, maybe I'm just nostalgia blind for your older comics. I still have that picture you made about gamestop's trade in services floating around somewhere along with alot of your metal gear comics(which got me interested in the series by the way) on my computer. And then I visit your new account and I end up thinking "these just aren't the same".  I'm sorry if I bothered you.  I just needed to get that off my chest.

No worries. Keeping things like this pent up inside isn't healthy, and I'm glad I was able to provide you a place to vent. If it's any consolation, I might revive the Nosfera series sometime this year for the sake of trying my hand at the series again.
