G'day.

It's a month now till June 12th. That means one month before School Spirit turns five years old. It was officially launched (after it was decided we knew enough to go ahead properly!) on June 12th, 2004, although the first strips predate that time.

Anyway... this is my attempt to put the word out and offer the same deal School Spirit does with each birthday.

For the week starting June 12th, I plan to put up one reader submitted School Spirit strip each day until I run out of them. Like each year before, these strips will remain in the archive. Ideally, I'd like six to fill the six days after the 12th for that week before regular strips start again. Any more, and the week continues each day till I run out. Any less, and I spread them through the week instead.

Either way is good.

So... have at it. If you're a reader, feel free to send something this way. If you're not a reader, give it a chance. It's been on Comic Dish a couple of years now but I've been in and out of this forum for a few years before that as well. It's also about to reach 700 official strips (although it's a little behind schedule, but that will catch up before too long). More on that in a few days, I guess. Smile

Enjoy, or at least give it a go, eh? Smile

Cheers.

Aw man I love school spirit!

I just started updating every weekday, so time is tight, but I'll see if I can get something for you!

Awesome milestone, Dutch! I have a few other pixel-promises I'm working on, but I'm gonna try to get something in for this.

Thanks for the offers, Mirz and Perk. If you can find yourselves time to get something together that would be great.

Well, it's happened. School Spirit has reached 700 strips.

I'm not gonna make a big song and dance over it, but I will suggest that, surely with a backlog of that proportion, just maybe it's worth giving a decent go if you haven't had a look at it before. Or at least for a while.

Okay. I'll slip back into the background again and go about my business.

Cheers everyone.

Hey, Dutch, grats on the amazing milestone. Sorry for not saying anything previously, but I suck at the whole drawing thing and I felt bad about not offering a strip.

So grats...
And don't be such a stranger around here.

Don't be a stranger? 1240 odd posts here! Smile

And don't be worried about not responding and what not. I'm the same. Smile

Besids... pretty sure you gave the strip a review way way way back. Better than just about everybody else did!

Cheers.

Oh, hell, didn't realise I missed you, Gregori! Really sorry! Thanks for the offer, whether it comes through or not!

That's one sure fire way to feel like a complete heel! Very Happy


Honestly, sorry for missing you. I read the response before everyone else put their own ones in... guess I just forgot it when I decided to respond myself... bugger.

Forgive me, eh? Smile

Congrats about the 700 hits! That is a wonderful accomplishment!

I would love to draw a guest strip, but I have a feeling I am going to be really REALLY busy between now and next month. I'd still like to, though it may come late.

Congrats! I wish we could send you something, but Trevor barely has time to update Ardra as it is, with his work schedule.

I seriously doubt you want ME to draw anything. Your students can draw better than I can!
