I want to wish everyone who celebrates it a very Merry Christmas (and wishes for a great day otherwise). I wish I had something drawn to show my appreciation of everyone who reads the comic, but alas, it didn’t turn out that way this year.
For anyone who may be interested in linking to Filtered Fuzz, I have published a page for banners. (’Bout time, I guess!)
Also, if the colors look crazy, let me know. It looks right to me, but my monitor may be weird.
Opossums really are awesome. It’s in their job description.
Another year is behind us, and I’m not quite sure how to feel about that yet. Usually, I feel a little sad to see the old year go by, but I feel like there’s a lot of potential in 2012.
I have so many plans for the comic. I don’t want to get too much into future story arcs here, especially when it’s something that will be be months away, but I am excited about it and I hope you will be too.
At any rate, I hope 2012 shapes out to be a good year for everyone!
I was just thinking about how grateful I am for everyone who reads Filtered Fuzz on a regular basis or at all. I love making this comic, but sometimes it’s easier when I imagine someone out there waiting for the next update.
I know that commenting on comics can be cumbersome and tiring, especially when one reads so many Web-comics, so it means so much when you do comment. But for those of you who stay silent but have still stuck with the comic, I want to thank you as well. Just know, either way, I appreciate your readership and that I don’t bite… Usually.
I don’t say all this in a “fishing for comments”-way. I just really appreciate everyone and I really want to say it.
To anyone who noticed the web-page issues this afternoon, I apologize. The issues have been addressed.
Jared does not want to go trick or treating.
Okay, the secret’s out! The reason I was so busy and hectic lately and the reason for the lack of updates this past week is that I was at Disney World from Saturday to Saturday. I have been to Disney World many times, but this was a trip of firsts.
This year my family took advantage of the free dining plan offer and I was able to eat at some fantastic restaurants we would not have been able to eat at otherwise. Highlights included The filet mignon at Le Cellier and the onion soup at Chefs de France. We also ate at Cinderella’s Royal Table, which was wonderful! All of these restaurants were a first for me and my family, and we really enjoyed them. My only complaint about the dining plan is that it’s so limiting. It seems like the days of walking into a restaurant in the parks and having a meal without reservations are over. Some of the restaurants book up six months in advance! I personally like being able to do do things as I want to and to not have to follow a plan thought up months in advance.
The weather couldn’t have possibly been any better. It wasn’t too hot, nor too cold, and it was consistently sunny with a few clouds.
We went to Disney World during the Festival of the Masters at Downtown Disney, which was a lovely experience. There were many beautiful displays of sidewalk chalk art and other exhibits, including a demo of the new Wii game, Epic Mickey. There was also a large Mickey Mouse statue carved out of peppermint soap! I really loved the whole atmosphere and experience.
Crowd levels were reasonable. I wasn’t able to ride all the rides I wanted, but the longest I waited in line for a ride was less than 20 minutes.
One day early in the week I walked into the Art of Disney store in Epcot and was asked if I wanted to be the guest artist of the day. I was thrilled! I drew Figment and my drawing was displayed in a special frame for the rest of the day.
I picked up a few blank Vinylmation figures as well. I can’t wait to start working with them!
Overall, I had a wonderful trip and I can’t wait for my next Disney trip, whenever that may be. And now, back to working on comics!
I finally gave the website a long overdue makeover…. Well, at least as far has the header and footer were concerned. As some of you have noted, things were looking more than a bit outdated around here, especially considering this website has been around for about two-and-a-half years without any real changes.
I hope to update things more in the future. It’s nice to change things around once in a while.
