Plea for Guest Comics! by kippydraw
August 25th, 2018, 10:55 am
Just a heads up, Sunkissed will be going on hiatus following the end of Chapter 2. At first my queue was dwindling down because I was recently hired for a full time management position at a local animal shelter, plus summertime is busy with traveling (and it’s my fav season so #treatyourself) but then my car was totaled. again!

(for anyone not aware, in march my mazda 3 was sideswiped by a truck and looked so bad people couldn’t believe i survived. this past month, my hyundai sonata was rear ended by a minivan. it’s been sort of a rough 5 months.)

ultimately my queue was lost to post-accident-trauma and whiplash pain. things are slowly returning to normal, but since I gave mysELF some time to recover, now I have to do the same for my comic. With summer coming to an end and my neck feeling muchmuch better, I hope to make a comeback by late fall or early winter!

In the meantime, I’d love to have your help filling in the gap during this upcoming hiatus! Guest comics, fanart, or even fanfic would be greatly appreciated so I have things to post on a weekly basis. You can DM me on pretty much any social media @kippydraw or send an email to PS, if you take commissions, please send me your info! And if you submit something, please include all of your social media/website(s) so I can boost you! No set deadline on this, but I’d love to have things by mid September.

Thank you all so much for reading, subscribing, liking, commenting, and supporting me and this comic. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you guys!

Fixed the image source again. If smackjeeves keeps doing this, I'll probably stop updating here. The comic will always be available at and probably tapas, but I'm debating smackjeeves. (Then again, I might just be impatient right now because a truck ran into my car last Friday and I haven't felt the same since. But you can read all about that/see pictures on my twitter @kippydraw)

Hope your lives are going better than mine :C

First, I want to thank you guys for helping me reach 500 fans!! Second, I made a sideblog for art, fanart, and other things related to the comic. You can follow it here! You can also tag things on tumblr with either #sunkissed comic or #sunkissedcomic (I'm following both tags now) and I'll reblog them!

total sidenote, but I'm really looking forward to these next few pages. They are Really Good ;>

aloha friday ;) idk if you knew this, but Sunkissed launches THIS MONDAY!!!! and because beginnings always go so slowly/im v impatient, we're starting off with DAILY updates, which means you're getting the first five pages at 10am EST M-F. not bad, right??

after that, weekly updates at Mon 10am EST begin. if that's not satisfying enough, you can always go to my patreon to get anywhere from one page to one chapter ahead of public updates.

as always, thank you so much for following/reading/supporting!! it means the world to see people interested in my bbs :') i will see you guys next week <3
