Astute readers will probably be able to guess what childhood trauma inspired the name of the horse. ^^ And with that, the 2nd Interlude is done. Somehow I get the feeling it would have been a lot better if it hadn't taken five months to finish. It feels like it's been forever since I've worked on the main comic, and I really miss it. I'm going to go ahead and set my deadline for the start of Chapter 4: April 20.
In a rather shocking turn of events, No Rest actually won the WCCA for Outstanding Fantasy Comic! My jaw kind of hit the floor when I found out; I never expected to actually win, not in a million years. I'd like to thank all my readers, I could never have done it without you, and, uh… *orchestra butts in*
Also, I was interviewed by T Campbell at Broken Frontier. An audio interview. So far I haven't had the guts to listen to it myself — when I get nervous, it generally results in either a) long, awkward silence, or b) erratic babbling, and I think I somehow managed both of these in the space of a single interview. But the morbidly curious among you might be interested, and you might want to check out some of his other interviews with webcomic artists.
