So, as we were trying to upload the page on Friday, I made the fatal error of trying to update plugins while the post was not yet up. I’m not sure if I broke something or if the site just broke itself, but I couldn’t access my dashboard to do anything after that. We slept on it hoping that it would fix itself, but it didn’t. A few pearl-clutchy messages/calls later, our amazing friend John who made and hosts our site for us, managed to get things sorted. THANK YOU, JOHN! <3

Anyway. Back to our scheduled programming…

The last panel with the market scene took us forever to do. +_+ On top of that, we spent our entire weekend last week doing a really fun project at the Book Lounge! We painted a huge window mural with our friend Deon de Lange in anticipation of Open Book Comics Fest which will be happening again in September! I’ll put some pictures in the next blog post. They are on our Facebook page too, if you can’t wait that long.

Thanks again for your patience. We really appreciate you sticking around.


PS: We put so much detail into this page and are kind of sad that the resize and text made most of it disappear. So here is a zoomed-in, text-free crop of the bottom part of the page!

Back from honeymoon!


It us!

Hey guys!

Yes, it is us, your favourite newlywed comic creators. We have arrived back from honeymoon! If you want to see a whole bunch of photos from it, the best place for that would be my instagram account. I also added a few bits and bobs of info regarding some of the places we visited and the stuff we saw.



Including this!

We had such a great wedding, you guys. It was just magical. Everyone always tells you that stuff will go wrong, and that you mustn’t let it get to you – well, I think ours was as close to perfect as dammit is to a swearword. There were things I was massively worried about going wrong – none of them did. In fact, considering all the stuff that could have gone terribly wrong, I feel like we pulled off a miracle! It was fantastic. We felt loved and happy, ate tasty food, took awesome photos, danced like maniacs, and had a lot of fun. We made sure that Sandstorm was on the playlist. Sure, the Neil Cicierega weirded out a few people on the dance floor. But it was so worth it. A whole glass of red wine did end up on my dress during the Trololo song… but that was at the end of the evening, after all the photos were done. It is currently at the dry cleaners, and they are doing their best to get the red wine out of the silk. Luckily my bridesmaids and various friends were on me like a flash and were soda-water-ing and white-wine-ing all the spots, which really helped. To see our photographer’s blog post about the day, go here! Recommended, seeing as the ones we post here will be smaller, and lower resolution than hers! We are so thrilled with the preview and can’t wait to see the rest.



Bridal squad!


We just love this photo.


I forgot half of my speech


Booyah! (We both really struggled to get our left ring fingers into that position!)

We’ll get back to updating soon, but first we have to wade through the enormous amount of admin that has filled up our inboxes since the beginning of the month (actually, to be honest, it’s been piling up since late June). There’s quite a lot we need to do. EGE is at the end of this month, too, and we need to kick into high gear to prepare for that! Here’s our post on last year’s event, in case you missed it. Since we had such a great response last year, we figured it would be a shame to miss out this year, wedding madness or no. If you want to help us recover financially, you can buy some art off my Etsy store, or tip me on stream via Paypal!

See you lovely folks soon.

Much love <3
