I want to announce that with the assistance you all gave us a couple weeks ago, some assistance from Squeakers' sisters, her and Dicy’s paychecks and the money from Patreon, we’re going to be able to stick around in our place!
We’re budgeting hard and making estimates already in order to avert scrambling next month. We’ll see where it goes and how successful things are.
and all of our friends who joined us in the stream and donated as well as everyone who donated here. I can’t thank you enough and I’ll be doing my best to keep up production as best I can going through October and onward! Thank you all so much. I really don’t have a better way to say it, though I wish I did.
If you still want to help out, you can always head over to our Paypal or Ko-Fi at any time.
I’ll be updating the Hall of Friends, soon, since it’s WAY overdue...
As far as Patreon goes, I still have the wallpaper to finish, but we slid just under our goal this month so I’ll do the voting once the current wallpaper is finished (I have to to the background and add the text, even though the main portion is finished.) Once that’s done, though I’ll put it up to be downloaded by everyone and run the vote for the next one, though it’s not a priority.
My current priority is the Spooky Sketches, which if you want a commission by me this month, is the special I’m running! Go and check that out.
I’ll open back up in November in a limited capacity.
For October, I’m running Halloween ‘17 - Sali’s Spooky Sketches! Click on the link for details! Only $17 per for a colored sketch! It’s scary! ovo!
I’m starting off a little slow. My sleep’s kind of bad and I’m just getting through all the stress from trying to keep things together, but that’s all draining out a bit so we’ll get those sketches started this week and
As always, I would like to send out my thanks to everyone who supports my Patreon! As I said before, I’ll try and have the wallpaper out this week, I was just completely full up last week with the comic. I was pretty out of it and stressed out most of the week and I just didn’t have time to put it together, but I’ll do my best to get to that this week.
I have a Ko-Fi now! Just in case you’re not fond of Patreon but still want to support without having to buy something expensive. ^v^ It’s cheap and every little bit helps! On October 5th, I’ll reset the counter and update it with the current cable bill, since everything right now is going towards rent.
There is now a Fox Saliant Studios/Various Happenings discord channel!
It’s not public just yet, but if you want an invite, you’re free to message me to get one!

Weekly Schedule [10/2]
Monday (10/2) Zen Day No Stream - Focus on cleaning house; resetting sleep schedule.
Tuesday (10/3) Various Happenings: p.70 (Sketching+Inking)
Despite how hard last week’s page was, it was a big hit, which I’m happy about. We survived last month thanks to a lot of help and going forward we have a plan. I just have to figure out a way not to drown in stress, it’s really impacting my health and I’ve got to take care of myself a little better.
I’m sure we’ll make it, though, every day gets us closer to our goal, and I haven’t missed a weekly update yet, even if I’ve been a bit late. I’m considering taking a short break after Chapter 4 (it’s going to be a short chapter, only a few pages) but we’ll see how I feel and if plans don’t change by then.
As always, if you want to ask me questions about my work, feel free to e-mail me at sali(at)foxsaliant.com or pm me either here, or at my deviantart or inkbunny (links are below).
If you want to help me out or see stuff that I can’t quite show off yet, feel free to visit my Patreon and contribute! If you just want to help, check out my website over at Foxsaliant.com for general info and donation links! I set up Ko-Fi for those of you who are still skittish about Patreon but want to toss something my way anyway, so if that appeals to you, go ahead and throw something over there!
Anyway, that’s all for now!
Thank you all so much for your love and support! ^v^ As always, I’ll be here if you need me! See you later!
