Sometimes the best thing is just to have a friend to coexist with you.
And that’s a wrap for this Anniversary Special! You might have a few questions, and I’ll try to address them here, but feel free to ask me anything in the comments.
First, does this mean Chapel is back for good? I don’t know. Maybe, or maybe not! I think the comic works best when I’m making it because I want to, but I’m in university right now, and I don’t have as much free time as I did before.
Secondly, why did I stop Chapel? Well, back in 2015, I just wasn’t feeling really creative. I was burned out and took a break. Quickly afterwards, I became severely ill which lasted a few years. And now I’m in college, studying in a five-year Dual Degree program between Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design! Despite the pandemic, I’m really happy with where I’m at in life.
Without Chapel, I would never have pursued a life as a cartoonist. Every reader of this comic gave me that chance. Thank you, sincerely, for changing my life for the better. I hope you liked this surprise installment.
Was wondering how you were going health wise and decided to drop in. And what do I see? New content.
As a long time reader (and occasional commenter), can I just say that the final panel of page 10 is perfect.
What a treat to get to visit with Chapel again! I hope you're doing well!
I would very much love, maybe even need, a set of prints or a comic, even if it has been... 29 years since it happened to me.
The "You need to keep up with your current work" wasn't so bad, but the "you also need to make up the work you've missed" had very drastic effects on my high school GPA and motivations thereafter.
I know you probably don't read new comments often, but know I would pay a premium for these prints or comics. I imagine you have access to my email addy if you need right? Please and thank you!
