Next Achtoon Baby?
« on: May 19, 2009, 11:50:16 PM »
I'm not sure if this was the best place to post this, but here goes in any matter:

I love the Achtoon Baby part of the site. It is hilarious. Bun is great. My question is: when will the next Achtoon Baby be put up?

Hey everybody,

Thanks for your concern.  I've been keeping this under my hat for a couple of weeks, waiting for @U2 to announce it officially, so I'm sorry for the wait/confusion.

While it has been my pleasure to make Achtoons every month, it's just been so much work.  No one has any idea how much work it truly is--at least 20 hours a month, multiplied by 70, plus untold thinking-about-it hours.  What should have been a fast little hobby turned into a monster, but that's the only way I've known how to do it and be happy with it.  In November I had a cancer scare (I'm fine, don't worry) that made me question what I've been doing with my life, and I felt regret at not doing more of my own art because I've been too busy with this U2 thing.  This has been an emotional decision, and I cried all day when I announced it to Matt, but after some time has passed I know it's the right one for me.  And @U2 will find somebody else.  I know I was dying to do this back in 2002, and there's got to be another person like me waiting in the wings.

I plan to contribute occasionally, a la Angela Pancella.  For example, I'll be at Chicago 1 and plan to write a review, possibly with illustrations, soon afterward.  So I'll still be around.   :)

Thanks to everyone who has given me feedback over the years.  It has always meant so much to me.  And thanks of course to Matt and the staff.
