No Pink Ponies Merchandising future? Maybe.... maybe...

Heya NPPers,
I actually forgot to mention this to you guys cos I was at that time busy with everything else and then promptly forgotten about it, NPP has a wee bit of merchandise going on right now! I actually used the Deviantart shop to make a little No Pink Ponies mug. I got one for myself and I gotta say, it looks pretty darn good. If you want em, you can get em right here:


Will there be future merchandises? If this mug does well, then for sure, if not, I'll think about it.

No Pink Ponies looking for guest spots!

So, I made this post over at my Tumblr a couple of days ago and now I'm opening it up to NPP readers as well:

Calling Webcomic artists (or non webcomic artists and just internet artists in general), I wanna do some guest spot for No Pink Ponies for the first time since it’s been online for 8 years, I’m probably gonna run it for like 2 or 3 weeks, so that’s 4 updates a week if I include Sundays as well (the update days are Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and occasional Sundays) so I can probably take 12 artists, so if anyone’s interested, please send me an e-mail at eisu.verse@gmail.com or send a PM in either Tumblr or Facebook (both links can be found on the side bar there).

Be forewarned, if you take on this guest spot, I will be revealing major spoilers of the current storyline to you so that the stories you make won’t be contradictory to the continuity of the comic post time-skip (cos the guest spots will run after the current storyline ends, which has about 2 more weeks of strip to run)

So, yeah, if you’re interested, drop me a mail, yo!

Time Skip!!

As mentioned in today's comic, I've stopped trying to catch up with all the missed backdates and decided to time skip the comic to present time, so the comic that updates today represents a 3 years later kinda deal. I felt especially comfortable with this move cos I think I've settled what I need to settle in terms of storyline in the past so now I can time skip the comic without it being too awkward or long.

I think psychologically as well, the backdated-ness gives me this whole "I don't have to update now, let's settle all other stuff first" kinda feel in drawing this comic cos I don't feel the pressure of the current date that I need to update, so with this time skip, I'm hoping that I'll actually put importance in updating on time (though I'm pretty sure I'll miss some, but hopefully it won't be weeks or months anymore) like I do for my other comics that I collaborate with other people.

Don't worry though, I will insert little nuggets of what happened the 3 years that I skipped as we go along this new chapter in No Pink Ponies. I'm excited with this move and I think it'll be the start of a great era for this comic. So, please, enjoy the now presently timed No Pink Ponies.

Lately I've been seeing a bit of a spike in visitors and some new comments being posted in old strips and stuff and I feel like I should give some explanation to new readers and visitors. Welcome to No Pink Ponies, it's hardly updating these days cos sadly, I cannot work on it full-time to support my life with bills and other stuff. I have a day job at an animation company I helped co-founded with some friends, we're still new so that means then everyone has to pitch in 110% of the time and that's why I hardly have the time to work on No Pink Ponies cos, despite the ad revenues I get, it's not enough to pay my bills.

Now, some of you might be wondering, "But you're updating quite regularly over at Marry Me and Sandra on the Rocks." Yes, I am regularly updating there, but that's cos I get paid by the people I'm collaborating with to do those comics, so there's an obligation there.

With No Pink Ponies and Rumble Fall, it's a work of passion. Like I said, I do get paid from the ad revenues, but I don't really track that much hits and visits every day, or at least not enough for the ad revenues to be my source of income, so sadly, I have to forego drawing both my passion comics from time to time (that can last months).

I just wanna apologize to the readers who expects me to update regularly and ask that you have patience when it comes to my online comics. Thank you.
