So some of you may or may not know that I’ve been dealing with a fairly serious eye condition for the last 2 weeks or so. At its peak, I couldn’t use the computer for more than a half hour at a time. I finally seem to be getting better and I’ve even started work on a new comic, but it’s slow going and I’ve found myself backed up with work. Even so, I hope to have a new comic out relatively soon. Thanks for all your support!

Agh, well, I was hoping to avoid this, buuuuut I’ve just got too much going on during the next two weeks between Halloween, work, and travel. So, unfortunately, BiPE will be on hiatus for the next two weeks.
Well, unless I can find the time to sneak in the next comic. But I’d rather not rush it, you know? I want to find the time to do it right.
Apologies to anyone eagerly awaiting the next installment! It’s coming! I promise! (pinky swear!)
I promise to send a small, free, hand-drawn BiPE picture to anyone who dresses like Danny or any of my characters for Halloween. All you need to do is send a picture of your costume to firstname.lastname@example.org along with an address for your drawing. Let me know if anyone decides to do this!
Watch this short film! It’s impossibly cute. And don’t forget to turn on subtitles and google translate. It’s not a perfect translation, but you’ll get the idea.
“Eu Não Quero Voltar Sozinho – The arrival of a new student in school changes everything in Leonardo’s life. This 15 year-old blind teenager has to deal with the jealousy of his long-lasting friend Giovana while trying to figure out the feelings he found out he has for his new friend.”

“From writer-director J.B. Ghuman Jr. comes the colorful and foul-mouthed feature musical comedy SPORK, a film about a frizzy-haired, pink-cheeked outcast named Spork who is trying to navigate her way through the annals of junior high. When a school dance show provides a chance for Spork to show up a mean girls gang, her trailer-park neighbor steps up to coach her with some booty-poppin moves. Featuring a vintage 90s soundtrack (that includes orig. music by Lady Tigra, Yeti Beatz, Amber Melody and Cazwell, JJ Fads SuperSonic, 2-Live Crew’s Get It Girl), a score by Casey James and the Stay Puft Kid; and extended school hall dance sequences, SPORK is a film about standing out and fitting in.”
