Maybe I should limit it...just a little bit.
And so it's true. MF office really is over for me at 50.
MF office started off as an exercise while C and I were getting the original twxxd ready. I made myself work in a very specific rule set to help develop skills and discipline myself. Here's my original list of rules for MF office:
- clean tag (PG)
- 3 Panels
- Black and White
- simple characters/style
- minimal time to create
- no video games
As you've noticed, I've broken more than a few of these rules before. The things is, as I broke more of them I started to realize that the rules didn't mean to me what they once did. It is important to have structure in your comic, but this structure just wasn't working for me anymore. To be honest, it was stressing me out. Last week's strip is a good example of a comic I couldn't do with the MF office character style. I had to break that rule for it to work for me.
Colour was another thing. I've often referred to MF office as the black and white sheep of twxxd. Since we switched to colour last year, it's become a big part of what twxxd is. B&W doesn't have a place in the brand now, as far as I'm concerned. If I was ever to do a black and white strip again, it would be on its own site, and it would be when I've got extra time on my hands because I'm hopefully making a living at this. I really hope to do that some day.
Thank you all for following and enjoying MF office for the past 2 years. I hope I'm not disappointing you by moving on from it, but I really do feel it's the right decision. I'm still going to have a weekly strip I'm going to put out there for the masses, it just won't have a name (for now). That, as well as a lot of other big and exciting things are coming for twxxd. I'm really looking forward to it, and I hope you are too.
