SMP Hiatus

You may have noticed that So Many Problems went on a brief hiatus for 3 months over summer. Nothing bad happened or anything, I'd just been busy of late, felt a bit burnt out and frankly, couldn't really be arsed.

Anyway, I'm back for the time being and SMP will be back to it's usual schedule of updating Monday, Wednesday and Friday (despite what the banner says). Did you know that this comic is already in the top 5% for comics with the most pages on Smackjeeves? You're all a bunch of quitters!

Couple of bits to look forward to. Firstly, You may have noticed that as well as not being artistically gifted, I'm also not fantastic with web design. I'm currently in consultation with a very talented friend of mine with a view to tweeking the design of the site and making it look like it's run by an adult and isn't some year 8's half-hearted school IT project. Tentatively aiming for December for that.

I'm also starting to put together bits for a Kickstarter to raise funds to make merchandise and help pay for hosting costs. Would you be interested in So Many Problems T-shirts, greetings cards and your own hand-drawn copies of your favourite SMP comics? Great! (I am assuming you said 'yes' out loud to yourself just then). Aiming to get the Kickstarter under way around February so keep your eyes peeled and feel free to suggest any comic you'd like to see adapted into a card or T-Shirt.

New and 'Improved'

You may have noticed a couple of layout changes with the site. My awesome friend Party has had a little (drunken) play with thet css. The background is slightly less offensive and the Twitter widget (follow me!) is better located. Also keep your eye on that dinosaur at the top....

The comics themselves have changed slightly too. I've now uploaded all of my old batch of comics I did (stoned-edly) ages ago. These were done with permanent marker on standard office paper and were not too awesome. If anyone's into this sort of thing, the newer comics are now drawn with an Edding 1mm and a Unipin 0.5mm onto 110g/m^2 A5 cartridge paper. The art, ha ha, hasn't improved but I'm trying to take a bit more care on the lettering. My default handwriting style somewhat resembles that of a LSD-ravaged 5 year old so it's a bit of an effort for me.

Current mood: HUNGOVER

New Update Schedule

Enough of this updating-all-over-the-place bullshit. That all stops right. Now. Well, from Monday anyway. From now on comics are being put up at midnight (BST, soon to be GMT) Monday-Friday.

In layout news, my crack team of me and a drunk dude I know (pretty much just him) have managed to get an actual banner header for the site. A real, decent size one should be due as soon as I get round to firing up Paint again (I do all my image manipulation in Paint, couldn't you tell?). The css is being a bit of a dick however and it seems that making any alteration to it at all messes all of it up. This is unfortunate because the pre-supplied background is almost as offensive to look at as Simon Cowell accepting a Outstanding Achievement To Music BRIT Award. I guess what I'm trying to say is, a better-looking website will be here eventually.

Have a fun weekend?

Still on Twitter. Guys?

So yes I have added a widget to the news feed. It displays what I put on Twitter. It's pretty terrible stuff. I've recently been told by one of my female friends that I am coming off a bit blokey and horrible on there atm. I will try and tone it down a bit, ladies.

Also I actually drew up some comics today so that this site can continue to have comics. Yay.

Also also I am going to learn some HTML/CSS so that I can put the widget to the side of the news feed, get a real header and have a real background at some point soon. I'm kidding of course. I'm going to ask one of my friends to do it for me. I don't even know where the backslash key is.

Should I be mad at this website, or mad at myself?

So yeah. Hi.

Firstly, I can't code and barely understand the internets as it is so what you're looking at now is pretty much the best I can do. Sorry Mum and Dad. This is the least offensive layout I could find. Again, huge apologies.

As for the comic, these are a bunch of single panel, badly-drawn problems that I've been slowly building up over the last couple of years. Think Toothpastefordinner, but much less funny and somehow drawn even worse. I'm going to attempt to put up 4 a week, along with the odd, clearly hilarious news/blog post and probably a Twitter at some point soon. I'll be pretty surprised if I'm still doing this/alive by Christmas.

If you enjoy the comic please come back and tell all your friends so I can feel smug and superior over how 100 people looked at a picture I put on a website one day. Thank you.
