So you may have noticed for a little while now that the usual weekly Potbelly Mammoth posts have been a bit sketchy lately, and as much as I have planned for my schedule to get back on track, I think it’s time I admit that things will take a little longer to iron out than expected. It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I will not be rolling out new Potbelly Mammoth content until January, 2017.
With work, school, and currently being under contract to sell our home and coming close to closing on our new home, my head has been occupied. Excuses aside, I do feel that this is a good a time as any to take a step back from the comic and rework my strategy and better plan for the future of Potbelly Mammoth. The fact is, I am over 2 1/2 year into the comic, and right at 100 strips, which is a HUGE milestone, and believe me- I have a LOT more planned that I think everyone will really love, but to be honest, I’m not confident I’m in the right head space to start a new chapter full of wild adventures, and do them as well as they need to be.
I’m not pushing Potbelly Mammoth aside completely. In fact, I will still be making appearances through out the area doing cons and events, slinging art, and improving the outreach and marketing of my comic. Also, I’m happy to announce that I will be working to assemble a book of the first 100 strips, plus bonus content never before seen on the website, as well as developing the next chapter and hopefully building up a buffer. Come January, I want to take Potbelly Mammoth to the next level and really cover some ground you all helped pave.
I understand that I will lose some readers by doing this, and rightfully so. I’ll have my work cut out for me regaining some of the support I’ve gained over the last couple years. But I also feel I have made some great friends and I hope everyone understands what I need to do, and will be back to pick up where we left off. Please keep track of me and my antics during this time by following Potbelly Mammoth on Facebook and instagram to be a part of all that I am up to, and updates as they come. to name a couple events you can see me at:

More information will be added to the events panel later, but PLEASE plan to come see me, say hi, and give me advice on what you want to see more of in the new upcoming installment of Potbelly Mammoth! Thanks again for all your support, and I hope you’ll be back when we return.
