first of all: i'm not dead! and hemlock isn't either!

second, i owe you guys an explanation for the long hiatus.
i only meant for it to be about a month, but...well, it's been nearly 3 months and this drawing is one of the very, very few things i've drawn in that time. i've been working in the shop of the david bowie is exhibition and it completely wore me out. my time management went missing and i kind of suspect my feet have some kind of nerve damage going on from standing for hours in terrible shoes, but that could be hypochondria.

on the plus side, the exhibition is only on for another 4 days, and then i'm out of a job, but i'll have time for drawing again! (/;v;)/

i don't want to promise a return date, because i'm super rusty and i need to get back into a hemlock mindframe, but it's not dead, and it will be back sooner rather than later hopefully.

ill wait forever

August 7th, 2013, 3:17 pm

nice to hear from ya, take as long as you need man. c8

August 7th, 2013, 3:27 pm

I just read the whole of this over the course of a couple days and it was beautiful! I'm eager to read more and like others said, will wait forever. 83

August 7th, 2013, 3:28 pm

Well shit, it looks like I saw you in real life and had no idea. Two of my favourite artists technically in the same place. How does this even happen.

August 7th, 2013, 4:52 pm

Waiting patiently for its return! Take as long as you need to get back on yer feet; goodluck with everything!!

August 7th, 2013, 5:58 pm

I will always wait for you!

Edit: I am still interested in getting a signed copy of one of your comics (I think cover four is my current favorite). I know you mentioned you have some at conventions, but I live in the States so I doubt I can hit you up at a con. Please let me know what I can do to get one!

August 7th, 2013, 6:16 pm


This post totally made my day!! I'm so happy it's coming back!

August 7th, 2013, 10:00 pm

Emitting small noises of distress and longing - so excited that you are with the liiivviiiing

August 7th, 2013, 10:02 pm

No worries!

Real life has this annoying way of taking over; glad to hear you're (mostly) well. Take care of yourself (and your feet!). We'll be here when you're ready. ;)

August 7th, 2013, 11:30 pm

Whoa, something happened!

August 8th, 2013, 9:38 am

Yeey :D
I can wait, take your time <3

August 8th, 2013, 11:06 am

Its nice to see that you are still alive! and dont worry, get some nice rest we┬┤ll be waiting as long as it needs.

August 8th, 2013, 2:16 pm

oh thank god! was worried/heartbroken/in agonies

August 8th, 2013, 2:55 pm

Might be that you've developed some trigger points that need calming down with regards to your feet! Look into trigger point massage therapy (which you can perform on yourself, especially in accessible areas like feet/legs) as you probably don't have anything serious going on, just some very knotted muscles. You'd be surprised how much pain/pins and needles/numbness/etc. such a stupid little thing can cause.

Take care in the meantime!

August 8th, 2013, 6:56 pm

Oh good, glad youre back c:

August 8th, 2013, 10:04 pm

Hurray! I'm in love with this comic!!! glad to hear it isn't dead!!

August 9th, 2013, 11:06 am

you did! I'll be sending it out on Monday since I'm away this weekend ;- )

August 9th, 2013, 3:08 pm

Update yey, Bowie yey!

I am glad that the comic continues, it is one of my favourite things on the Internet! And I've been lurking on here for a while but I had to comment upon reading that you were working at the DB exhibition shop! Did you get to see the exhibition?

August 9th, 2013, 5:36 pm


Good to hear from you again! I know I'll keep waiting as long as you need us to (despite my intense desire to know what happens next).

And being on your feet for so long is hard! You should probably look into a decently priced foot massager, or barring that clean avocado pits make fantastic substitutes. Elevating your feet with two pillows at night since a lot of discomfort and pain comes from blood pooling at your lower legs and such.

August 9th, 2013, 11:14 pm

Email sent. Let me know if you don't get it.

August 12th, 2013, 1:54 am

I think most of us will wait forever

August 12th, 2013, 10:04 pm


I'm glad to hear that you still live! As for the long hiatus, you take what time you need. Find your feet again, both literally and figuratively. I'll look forward to Hemlock's return. Since finding it it's become one of my favorite webcomics. It's also the first one I've been in love with enough to overcome my trepidation of ordering things over the internet, and bought physical copies of.

August 15th, 2013, 10:53 am


Take all the time you need! I can't wait for more Hemlock, but I know how hard it is to get back into the feeling of things, so good luck! BTW, I love our comic, your art style is so amazing and original!

August 17th, 2013, 3:01 am

Oh Hello There.

Oh Hey, I totally just read the entire comic. Just then. Couldn't stop, love it and the art style and agh. Would love to see more, so I am actually so glad i'm finding you now and not 3 months ago. I hate it when I find a fantastic comic and it turns out its never coming back, and it keeps happening. so I would love to see more.

August 17th, 2013, 6:19 am

I'm a bit late with this advice - but if you're spending long days on your feet at a job, stick a pillow under your feet at night and sleep with them higher than the rest of you. It redistributes the lactic acid and the results are amazing - I wouldn't be able to do my job otherwise. :)
