Shai Away

Starting from Comic #892: Page 859 + Hiatus Notice
Page 859 + Hiatus Notice
Hello. This is something that I hoped I wouldn't have to do, but as of late I've realized that this is the best course of action.

I'm putting this comic on indefinite hiatus. I know that in webcomic language "indefinite hiatus" basically means "cancelled", but I hope it doesn't have to come to that. But I've realized that it's been a long time since I've genuinely enjoyed working on this project and I believe that it's coming through in my art and writing. On top of that, I don't think my art is at the level where I can tell the story how I want it to be told. I hate having to do this because I'm just a few chapters away from the end and I've come so far, but I think this is the best thing I can do for my mental health right now.

To everyone who stuck with this comic for so long, thank you so much. If it weren't for your encouragement, I would have dropped this project years ago. At over 800 pages and almost 4 straight years of production, Shai Away is by far the longest I've stuck with any project. I still have fond memories over the early days and I don't regret picking it up.

Now, as far as the immediate future goes, I do have several pages of this chapter already completed, but I'm wondering if I should hold off on uploading them since they don't really go anywhere as far as the larger story goes. That's where my head is right now, but I'm curious to see what you guys would prefer.

I'll probably pop on CF from time to time, but if anyone wants a more reliable way to contact me, my art email is fishydrawings@gmail.com and my instagram is @dudewheresmyfish. Thank you, love you all, have a lovely 2020

Thank you for a wonderful journey! I hope you'll return someday with more stories. Until then, I'd love to see whatever is left of this one. Be well, and don't forget your fans!
I love this comic so so much! Take whatever time you need, creative projects are so much harder when you’re not feeling it. Just know we’ll be waiting here with open arms if and when you come back <3
