**Weekly Update! (2022-11-28)**


https://www.foxsaliant.com/


Hey peeps!


So the holiday is over until Yule, which means we’re going to be working for the rest of the year (at least) to try and get current and caught up with things! I’m feeling a bit better lately and the sickness seems to finally start to be draining out of my system, so that’s fantastic and I’ve got ideas and things that I want to do.


My current plans are to focus on Orders #526, #536, #538 and #539. I want to see about getting them done this week and also doing the composition for either/or Various Happenings 6-18 or Clara #011.


I’m aware I’m probably not going to get ALL those things done, but I at least want to knock a few of the commissions out, and then get a little comp work done even if it’s only a few panels. I’m starting to feel a bit better and less overwhelmed than I was going into the holiday so hopefully that carries me until the new year.


If I can manage all that, I’ll be close to current again, and I’ve still got stuff coming in so I should be in a better position for next month and hopefully the new year. Everything is paid for this month, though I do have the big site expendatures just after New Year’s so I’m going to have to save up for that.


Still, I feel confident that we’re still on track and that the projects will be moving again soon enough.


Thanks for sticking with me, and I’ll see you all next week!

Hey peeps!


Man, this last week was kind of a bummer. I was just really super sleepy and felt kinda shitty all week and my output was all over the place, but no worries! I’m going to stream a little this week and then take off for Thanksgiving to help around the house and get some good food in me. I’ve been messaging people so that we can figure out what to do for commissions and who wants to watch me stream and stuff like that, so I’m getting more information on that and planning what to do.


Everything else is just knocking things out of the stack and letting it all sort itself out as I do it. I’ve got a solid to-do list and that’s what I’m trying to stick to.


In other news, I don’t remember if I mentioned it but Clara Cosmos has a new site!


www.claracosmos.space


Check it out for all the latest Clara adventures! n.n


And that’s pretty much it! I hope you all have a wonderful Turkey day and I’ll see you all next week!

Until then!

Hey peeps!  Nothing new to report!  Got a lot of commissions and projects in progress, so I’m just doing my work trying to get everything worked down!  With any luck, I’ll be current by the end of the month, which will be a massive relief and we can start saving for a few essential items for future endeavors!


I don’t really have anything else to talk about!  It’s mostly just a regular work week, so I’ll get to that, and I’ll see you all around!


Finally!  Fall weather!  I hope to enjoy it while it lasts!


Until next time!

Hey there peeps!


Another week, another set of stuff! The spoopy season is fading and we’re heading into honest fall (except, yanno, down where I live where summer ends whenever it darn well pleases) so time to relax and enjoy the scenery.


Moving forward with commissions and such! My goal this month is to catch up on my current commissions to where all my invoices are current, post two Clara strips, and another Various Happenings strip. I don’t know if I’ll get through it all, but those are my goals!


Voting is tomorrow for the Americans in the crowd, so don’t forget that! It’s very important and voting in local and congressional elections is just as important, if not MORE important, than voting in the Presidential one. Research your local candidates, and make your choices! It’s our duty!


Aside from that, just looking towards the future! We’ll see where things go from here!


Not much else to report, so I’ll see you all next week!


Until then!

Hello all, and Happy Halloween!


This last week has been a bit rough.  I’ve been ill all week, from simply sniffly to being too dizzy to stand up straight, and thus the amount of work I’ve been able to manage has been variable from little to naught.  Still, it is the spookiest of days and as resident ghost, it would be remiss of me to not have something to say!


I do hope everyone enjoys their spooktacular celebrations and their interactions with all the ghouls and ghosts are safe and satisfying!


Last week saw the release of another Various Happenings!  We’re moving the story forward again, and we open with a shower scene!  Ooh~lala~!  (Hehehe.)


We’re going to be working on getting this current list worked down.  I’m still in the middle of a few commissions and want to work down the list I have along with the remaining giveaway pics.  I’d hoped things would go faster, but I can’t control getting sick, unfortunately.


Still, I’m looking forward to the future and I’m feeling excited about future projects.  Once I get caught up, it should be much easier to manage.  I know it always seems like I’m running behind, which is true in the general sense, honestly, but every day we get a big closer to absolute sustainability, which is my ultimate goal.


Of course, if you’d like to make my life a little easier, I do have a Patreon!  We don’t have much… I can’t really produce a lot of exclusive content, but for $5 tier or higher, you’ll get access to the VIP room of the discord, where I post everything I do as soon as I do it, so you’ll see a lot of stuff way before I ever get around to posting it on the gallery sites or social media.  (I need to get better about that honestly.)  Mostly it’s just a way to help me have to rely a little less on commissions for my monthly expenses.


I’ve also fully shifted my commission work to using Stripe as the payment method, so please be aware of that going forward.  They should take most credit or debit cards and a variety of other common forms of payment, but my current experience is very limited so I do not know about other cases.  We’ll see what happens going forward and make concessions if necessary.


We also have a new domain for The Adventures of Clara Cosmos!

https://www.claracosmos.space/ !


That’ll be the site for all things Clara Cosmos in the future!  We’ve also retooled the FSS Ko-Fi into one for Clara Cosmos, since that project is rated for General Audiences we thought it’d be a perfect fit, so if you want to see more of that, you can support it that way! n.n

https://ko-fi.com/claracosmos 


And that’s all for now.  I’m going to go take some daytime cold & flu medicine, finish up my administrative stuff and hang out with a bag of kitkats. 


Have a spoopy Halloween, a reverent Samhain, and a fantastic week, everyone~!

Hey peeps! 


Just a quick update! I’ve started issuing the new invoices via Stripe and everything seems clear! I just need the final word on a transaction or two, and everything will be good to go to complete the migration!


Nothing more to report! Still working on a VH update and then I’ve got a few other things I want to do after that - a Clara update, finishing a scene on another project, some updates to the VH site, and more FSS site work.


Normal work is still coming along and though things aren’t going as quickly as I hoped, they’re still going!


Talk to you all next week~!

Hello everyone!


Some... interesting things going on so we’ll get down to business.


First thing’s first, due to recent changes in the terms of service over at Paypal as well as their less than… scrupulous treatment of their customers as of late, I will, in accordance with Paypal’s terms of service, be discontinuing my use of their service on the 17th of October, 2022.


Now as far as what that means for my customers going forward, I don’t know. Hopefully doing transactions with Stripe, which I am switching over to, via the invoicing system will largely be the same and not really an issue for my customers. Though Stripe only services US business, it accepts customers internationally, so it shouldn’t be a problem.


Because of this, anyone who hasn’t paid or has only partially paid by 3 PM EDT (12PM PDT) on October 17th will either have their Paypal invoice canceled (in the event of non-payment) or marked as “completed via other means” (in the event of a partial payment) and the remaining balance reissued via Stripe. Hopefully, fundamentally, this won’t change anything, and you will just be able to pay it through Stripe like any other online transaction. 


The only issue, is that because of this, after October 17th you will not be able to get a refund through Paypal if you desire it. I hopefully haven’t given anyone a reason to request one (it’s not something that happens very often, thankfully) but if anyone even thinks they might need to request one, I urge you to contact me before the 17th.


I’ll do my best to make sure that this change is as painless as possible, but we won’t know until it happens.


Otherwise, things are going more or less as planned. Commissions are getting worked on, as are projects, and once things get caught up, hopefully things will stay steady for the foreseeable future. I’m getting stuff worked down, though, and the end of the current list is looking closer than ever before!


That’s pretty much what’s going on right now. I’m still trying to secure a printer to begin with the Various Happenings merchandise, but pages 16 and 17 of Chapter 6 are in progress and should hopefully be ready sometime this week. I want to do more Clara stuff as well, I just haven’t had the time. But that’s alright, we’re still going!


If anyone has any questions, feel free to message me at one of my gallery sites or via Discord. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Hey everyone!


Alright, we’re getting back to work! The vacation went on as well as I hoped, but I’m ready to get back to doing stuff! Tis the spoopy month, after all, and I’m going to see about decorating the site in equally spoopy décor!


I’m going to be working with that, as well as looking into various business things that I’m currently debating about, such as acquiring new equipment (the printer and a few other things) for new merch opportunities, as well as a possible... adjustments with my current payment vendor, and slight schedule changes to stream times or frequencies.


People seemed to like the split stream schedule and I might end up having to do that more often in the future due to a shift of schedule in the evenings. There’s also going to be a lot more off-stream work coming up as well so I’ll have to see how often and long I’m able to do things. 


There’s a Various Happenings update in the pipeline, so I’m working on that, along with a bunch of other stuff I’m chipping away at (the chat voting comic and some other projects, along with Clara Cosmos,) so it’ll be very interesting to see what’s going on here soon enough.


Of course, you all already know that I’m not doing a Halloween sale this year, due to the… ridiculousness of last year’s event.  

A ghost is going to rest this year, unfortunately. So I’m sorry about that. n.n;  


But that doesn’t mean I won’t be working. Commissions will continue as normal and I hope to shrink the list significantly so that I’m finally current for the first time in a few years!


We’ll see what happens!


I hope you all enjoy gearing up for the spoops, and I’ll see you around! Until next week! ;3

Hey peeps!


So after some badgering by my friends, I’m taking a week off from streaming to relax a bit and work on stuff around the house!

I promised I would after I finished my fundraiser list, so I guess I’ll be good. XD


Also, the weather is apparently going to get a bit intense around Thursday, so I want to make sure we’re prepared for all that just in case anything happens! It's going to be a bit hairy, but it doesn't look like it'll be TOO bad. We can hope!


Starting the first Monday of October, though, I’ll be back at it and working at hitting all these commissions on my now current list to get back up to where I need to be, finally!


Some more Clara Cosmos and Various Happenings stuff in the works that should be up soon, and after my vacation I’ll be back on some of my other side-story stuff that I’ve been working on in the discords (if you're familiar with it.)  


I just needed a little break to avoid getting burnt out, is all!


That’s pretty much where we’re at! Gonna chill, so I’ll see you all next week when we get back into high gear!  


Take care of yourselves, and if you’re in an area likely to be or already affected by hurricanes, be safe!


See you all next week!

Heya peeps!


Well, I’m happy to say that we finally finished off all the sketches I took around last Halloween to get my dentures done!  

Now we’re on the current commission list once and for all!


What that means, though, is this week I’m taking it easy! I’ll still stream, of course, but for this week, I’m going to be drawing stuff that I want to and just generally hanging out! Next week it’s right back at it, though! My list is still plenty big, so there's no point in sleeping on any of that!


In other news, we’ve got a new Clara Cosmos this week, and I’ll see about getting back to Various Happenings again now that I have more room to do so. I’ve also got a few ideas in the works that I'm going to see about doing here pretty soon.


I’m itching to tell you peeps about, but I can't until they actually start to coalesce, so we'll just have to wait. All in due time!  


First thing’s first, though, it’s time to decompress!


Thank you to all of my patient clients and all of my patrons for their support. It's been a long road (and it's not done yet, I'm still busy) but we did that, at least! And I'm proud. n.n


I'll see you all next week!
