It took two years longer than we were hoping, but I am finally living in New York with my lovely wife (or at least she will be my wife once we manage to find a city clerk office that is open with this pandemic going on). The cancer delay kinda messed up the timing in the worst way, so far I have been locked inside our apartment ever since I got here in self-isolation, but I can see the top half of the Freedom Tower and the Chrysler Building out the window. So that is nice.
In other good news, I was able to secure a battery for my surface pen so I can get some work done while we wait this whole thing out. I hope you are all holding up ok in this crazy new world we live in. Stay safe.
First of all, sorry about missing the last week’s Bridgedflicked update, I’ve been working on it but I wanted it to be a funny one and it’s been kind of hard to get into a funny headspace to get it done with all the chaos that has been going on. Speaking of which–
I finally got my US visa granted so I can immigrate and move to New York to get married for real at last. Yay! I’ve been sorting out my stuff, getting ready to move and bought my ticket to the states for the end of this month… and then this pandemic situation exploded… yeah.
So now I am in limbo, not knowing if I am going to be able to get there (my ticket has had a “schedule change” with no indication of if it will be rescheduled at all) and if I can’t get through now, how long it will be until air travel opens back up again.
If I am able to make it in before everything gets shut down, I’m going to be shifted into another kind of limbo where in addition to being locked inside (again) while this virus is going on I won’t even be able to do any paid work online while I wait for my US work permit to come through, so that’s fun
I will still be working on comics of course, but once I get to New York I’ll pause the payment cycle on Patreon until it is legal to charge on it again (you can still pledge if you want to, won’t charge you anything during the pause) and I will also be taking commissions up until the day I leave, so if you are interested in that head over to the support page and check it out.
