We’ve been doing this for two years now! Wow! It’s not THAT long of a time, but it seems that way when you’re still in college, still growing and changing so much. It definitely hasn’t been easy to keep updating three times a week between classes and jobs, but you guys make it all worth it. I don’t know what to say that’s any different from what I say on a regular basis: thank you for reading. I’m glad we have such a clever and dedicated little family here. We love you guys!!

My art has improved substantially since our first anniversary, which was already an improvement from when we started. At this point last year, I didn’t see how I could get much better, but it turns out there was a lot that I just couldn’t see at the time. I’ve improved my lineart, backgrounds, consistency in proportions, variety in facial structures, and even my speech bubbles. Now I can look back on older comics with more experienced eyes and see so many things I would have done differently. I’m excited to see where we are at this point in 2014, both in terms of art and storyline. We have a big story to tell, and tons of huge plot points and little details that I can’t wait to share with you guys… but for some, it’ll be years yet!

We have a few surprises down the road, too. And who knows, now that we’ve graduated from college, you might be able to meet us at a con or two. We may be totally self-taught novices who just make comics out of a love of humor and cartoons and video games, but heck if we aren’t serious about it!

Oh, by the way, the art above is a game box you might have seen on the shelves growing up if you’re me and Victor’s age, or a bit older.

Hm? It was released on a few different systems, I’m surprised you didn’t see it.


Seriously, though, we have a lot of storyline surprises down the road. My hope is that, by next year, you’ll all come to realize just how deep Idenau goes. I’ve never been satisfied with just writing a story for Skärva and co.; my goal has always been to create an entire world in which our characters act and react. You’ll get to visit a lot of Idenau over the next year, but what I really want is for all of you to be capable of imagining yourselves there in person. So, expect more encyclopedia entries whenever we have the occasion to make them, and always feel free to ask questions!
