Understudy's been going for over a week now, and I'm having a blast working with Aleister. He's not exactly co-operative, but that's why it's fun. Aleister will sit still for a photo or two, and then he'll start vogueing. He's a dancey little guy, and I love how his personality is coming out in the pictures.

It's making me want a better camera. The one I've got is OK, but tends a bit towards blurriness. I have an old camera that I think still works. It's maybe eight or nine years old, but it was expensive at the time and I think the lens and aperture controls might make it better for taking webcomic photos than the €65 Fujifilm HD Move I'm currently using.

Aleister doing a backflip is the photo I want to take.

The Neko the Kitty hiatus is set to continue even after my finger heals. I want to figure out what it is I'm actually doing with the comic and get a buffer of about 20 strips built up so that I know I'm ready to keep going when NtK starts updating again. In the meantime, you can get to know Aleister. He's just starting out on the internet and this is his big chance to be a star :)

Today, Cosmo the Quote Bunny is quoting Hunter S. Thompson, the world's most unapologetic asshole.

I think it's good you're enjoying what you're doing, even if it's not NtK. I've almost always enjoyed the humour you've had in your art, even when you were doing the stickynote doodles, with one exception. I found the late NtK to be a bit too absurd.
With the Aleister posts, it feels like you've gotten back to the humour that drew me to your comic originally (think it was '05 or '06).

To thine own self stay true.

@thesquish: Thanks! It's nice getting back to comics about a cat thinking about things. I'm going to be taking a good long break from Neko, I think, so it's good to know the understudy's winning the crowd.
