I am proceeding with new updates, but a looming deadline has me concerned. So, for the time being Ralf the Destroyer will be updated weekly (on Wednesdays) until I can clear this long term project off my drawing table. It is not a permanent schedule. Hopefully, it will just be for the next month or so... but I wanted to get new updates posted while still having time to finish this other project by the new deadline (before Spring). I also wish to thank you all for your continued readership!
Just to let the early birds know, the update for today (Friday the 7th) will be up around lunch time. It's just a scheduling conflict. After today there will be a break in the updates for a few weeks (ie until after the holidays) so I can catch up on some other projects. I am anticipating that I will need a clear desk for the beginning of the new year ;) Also, if any of you fine readers frequent Facebook and check on the Ralf fan site, I have started posting "Ralf the Destroyer postcards" there. It would go a long way to help the strip out if you find one you like and "share" it on your time lines. Thanks all!
Thanksgiving is the day after tomorrow, so I will be taking a few days off. I'm sure that most of you readers will be preparing for, and heading out, to spend time with your families (that's as it should be). I am very thankful for your continued support as readers, for monetary donations through Paypal and for donated art supplies through Blick Art Materials. Ralf the Destroyer updates will resume on Monday the 26th and I hope you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Sincerely, Scott Lincoln P.S.: Don't worry about the giant orbital death ray platform, known as the Gothra... Ralf left with the "safety" on.
Well the good news is that the "Save Ralf the Destroyer (dot) com" art sale achieved its primary goal of raising enough money to keep the hosting plan for the site! I would like to sincerely thank those who purchased art and those who donated as well. I realize that times are difficult for everyone and that this campaign was pretty short on notice, so I very much appreciate those who were quick to help out. The strips should be arriving soon for those who took advantage of the sale and for those who donated, I have sent a small token of my appreciation. I apologize to the GoComics/Sherpa readers for not being able to renew my account there yet. I still have utilities that need addressing first, but I haven't forgotten you. Lastly, for those who are still interested in purchasing an original please contact me by email and for those wishing to donate the Paypal button is available in the left column. Thank you for your support! Scott Lincoln
I'm having a limited time art sale! I need to raise some capitol to keep the site up and buy food and heating oil as this past summer has proven to be more economically depressed than I expected. GoDaddy needs their hosting fee by October 1st and I have run out of money. So I am offering original Ralf the Destroyer Daily strip art (usually $80 - $100) for the insanely low price of $50.00! The transactions will be through Paypal. You can either hit the donate button and put the name and date of the strip in the "message" field along with your mailing address or contact me via email (email@example.com) and then use the button. Additionally, I would be happy to create commissioned pieces of inked single characters of your choice (not just mine, but keep it clean) on 8"x 11" board for $25 or any two characters on an 11"x 17" board for $40. If you want to just donate like some readers have done in the past, just go straight to the "donate" button in the left column, every little bit helps. My options are limited and so is the time, after October 1st it's all over. As always, thank you for your readership and support!
