    Poor Jared, I think you need some rest. And stop thinking about things for a while.

    Look at Maggot being so cute and worried though, d’aww.

    Jared needs a vacation. Heheh.

    still waiting, patiently.

    okay, my patience is running out, if there’s still no update by the end of the month I’ll just leave.

    I have a job which I enjoy to the fullest, but it along with life can leave me without as much time as I would want to draw and write. I know that probably sounds like a lame excuse that every web-comic artist ever has used at some point in time, but it happens. Admittedly, my creative progress has been slow lately, but I genuinely do not want to rush with it and wind up regretting my work in the process. Sometimes this means getting halfway through drawing a page and realizing it’s just not working and having to start over.

    I don’t make any money from Filtered Fuzz and I do not ask my audience for donations or charge a fee to view the comic. I feel it is fair that I update on my terms in a way that does not add stress. Stress is a contamination and I feel that it can truly negatively effect my work and the last thing I want is the quality of the comic to deteriorate. This comic has been and continues to be a learning experience. I want to improve, not go backwards.

    I understand completely that waiting for web-comics to update is no fun. I am an avid web-comic reader and it’s especially a very heavy-hearted feeling to realize that a beloved comic will probably never update again. However, this comic WILL continue to move forward, but it should do so on my terms. I absolutely do value every viewer and anyone who has stuck with the comic for so long, from the most vocal of commenters to lurkers who have never commented. There are hundreds, if not thousands of worthy web-comics out there and it’s a privilege to know that anyone is drawn to my comic at all.

    there’s a lot I have to say about that, but I’m just going to keep it short, I understand you wanting to go at your own pace but it’s just that updating once every 2 months is a bit much don’t you think? I think the gap between updates will only grow larger over time. if you don’t care about how many people read your comic then taking months to get the pages done is fine, but if you have people wait 2 months for a single page you’re going to start losing a lot more people than me. I don’t mean to stress you out, I’m just giving you a reason as to why I’m getting impatient, and I’m sure others have the same reason as I do but don’t want to comment it… huh, so much for keeping it short I guess.

    Aye. I have the same feelings but I already pestered our artist once a few pages back when the first big gap was. I figured I’d be labeled the asshole if I bothered her again.

    I’m fine with how often it’s updated. I appreciate the effort she puts into it, and I’m thankful she’s willing to work on it at all but then I happen to think someones emotional well being is far more important than my own gratification.
