Hey guys,

I’ve got some good news and some bad news for all you Punch-Up fans today.

First of all, you know that Angry Panda T-shirt that Patrick is wearing on today’s Punch-Up page that you guys like so much? Well, the Amazing David Brame is working on designs for an Angry Panda T-shirt while I’m looking into printing methods and cost.

(Incidentally, if any of you out there in the interwebs know of a decent service for printing T-shirts, let me know. You’d be saving me from one less headache.)

And then there was only the bad news…

I just got word today the Amazing David Brame that he’s leaving on a much deserved month-long vacation this week and, due to unforeseen events — *coughcough*Abigail Kokai*cough* — we weren’t able to build up enough of a buffer of finished comic pages to last us through his time away.

So we’re going to have to take an immediate month-long hiatus on the webcomic, until he returns and is able to start cranking out new comic pages again.

That said, we’d still like to have original content to post up on the site over the next month. So if any of our artist friends  or fans of the comic and would like to do some Punch-Up fan art — We’re not looking specifically for comic art, so painters, photographers, sculptors, etc. feel free to contribute, too! — get a hold of me as soon as you can. I have character reference for those who need it.

Those who contribute Punch-Up fan art will get a blog post praising your work, along with a short bio and links to whichever of your sites you’d like to plug, as well as a page for your art when Punch-Up is eventually collected in print form.

If interested, please leave a comment or send me an email.

Thanks in advance!
