Welcome to Burgandy.

It's 1991 and Sam is the new kid. Sports, romance, and rock'n'roll. Well more like grunge and hip-hop. This is Burgandy.

My Car Accident

Hi everyone!

It's been so long since I've been able to sit down and really work out where I want to go with Burgandy.

It's also been a long time since I've been able to connect with you fans that leave sweet or funny messages.

Those really make my day so thank you all <3

So I have some kind of depressing news about my life that I think will directly effect the efficiency of the comic process and I think it's important for whoever reads to know.

So here it is:

In early September, I was driving up to PAX Prime in Seattle.

Now, I've been driving for awhile but I had only driven myself to Seattle once before to go to a space museum.

Now, mistake No.1 was that I drove down by myself.

I was planning on staying the night there alone so I just drove solo.

Mistake No.2 was that my friends had parked in a parking garage to nap and lost service.

This meant that for over an hour, I had zero way of contacting them and I had no idea where I was going.

Mistake No. 3, bagels.

Okay so, bagels are never usually a mistake but for some reason they were on this particular day.

I figured that I would go ahead and park to get something to eat and what do I see?

An Einsteins Bagels.

Hell yeah, I was totally about to get my bagel game ON.

I made a U-turn and waited at the light.

It was right there.

The sign was like being at home again.

It was familiar and I was already stressed and hungry.

The light turns green and last minute someone runs the light so I wait a few seconds.

I start to take off and suddenly everything is spinning.

Now, I kid you not when I say that all I remember was something touching my face. It was like a soft hand? I wasn't sure.

Well, it turns out to be my airbag. Then, I realize that my car is still spinning.

It felt like time had completely slowed down.

My ears were ringing and I couldn't see anything; my left contact was knocked out.

I was hit by a van almost twice the size of my car.

For the next hour, I'm sitting in the pouring rain in a soaked sweater and shorts...crying and holding my wrist that I was sure had been broken.

My car/automobile boyfriend Rick was gone. Completely totaled.

Now, as dramatic as that all sounds, it was my reality. It still is my reality.

Almost two months later, I'm still struggling with my injuries.

My left arm is completely messed up and I'm dealing with a concussion.

Due to my concussion, drawing, writing, driving, and anything involving memory have become a handicap for me.

I even had to drop my college courses (which have been an expensive and stressful addition to everything) and quit my job.

That saying,

I have already started working on the new pages. I have at least 12 pages storyboarded and ready to finish.

The only issue now is that spending hours on my computer drawing pages is bad for my brain?

I'm on "total brain rest" right now which means that I'm not supposed to be doing anything (like writing this post lol).

I hope all of you will understand, especially since I plan on releasing the first page within the next few days? weeks? We'll see.

I'm not sure if any of you even read these news updates but I guess I just wanted to post this so you all knew why things might be off for a bit.

As always,
thank you all so much for your support and I hope you like the new comic!

Hugs and smoochies,
Alyssa.

Hi

Hi, I'm Blake, I'm the author of this comic. I'd just like to say that I love all of you and I want to personally thank you all for being patient with us. I have written a bunch of possiblities for what is going to happen next in the comic (and by next I mean waaaay next, we havent even gotten through exposition yet) and I'm really excited to show you all that. I'm trying to work out an update schedule so that more than 1 page comes out every month (or two months, or three months...you get the drift). Ultimately, that in't up to me, beacause I can't draw for my life, and Alyssa gets to choose when things update. Because yay.

ANYWAY I KIND OF MONOLOUGED THERE SORRY.
I wrote this to introduce myself to all of you lovely readers, and to say that I'm forcing Alyssa to make a page right now, so you can expect an update (or maybe two... DUUUUDE UNHEARD OF) in the very near future

Updates!!

Terribly sorry for not updating last night!! I got in an accident and basically injured the entire right side of my body...nothing too major though, just a pretty tough skateboarding accident. Anyway, I plan on updating 3 pages that I have all outlined so be prepared for that! And thank you to all our fans for putting up with my issues!
