The Archer and the Squirrel

“The Archer and the Squirrel” is an unorthodox fairytale about Lark, a young woman in pursuit of a better life. When the king offers a handsome reward for an unusual bounty, Lark confidently jumps at the opportunity. However, things are not always what they seem in the woods, and the closer Lark gets to her prize, the less she’s sure she wants it. Torn between a long-held dream and newly found truths, Lark must decide where her values and loyalties lie.

One Year Anniversary by Tieback
May 30th, 2017, 9:43 pm
Hello Lovelies!

Tomorrow is an exciting day! May 31st marks the one year anniversary of The Archer and the Squirrel! I’m so happy to reach this milestone. Thank you to everyone who reads and supports this comic. You mean the world to me!

When I started this webcomic, I was uploading a new page every other Tuesday; an updating schedule I still run by. However, it was my goal to switch to weekly updates by the comic’s one year anniversary. But then life happened, and I got an unexpected, yet very welcomed, promotion at work. Due to this promotion, I had to “go back to school” so I could acquire some certifications. And this new responsibility resulted in the need to push back my weekly updating goal.

Although I’m still studying for certifications, I had an idea. I’d like to propose a challenge to both myself and all who read this comic. Currently on Patreon, I have a monthly goal set at $30.00. Reaching this goal would cover the recurring expenses for creating and publishing this comic. So far, there are six patrons pledging $14 a month. If you guys can help me reach or surpass my $30 a month goal, I will switch to weekly updates.

https://www.patreon.com/Tieback

For those of you who accept this challenge, you will get additional perks as a Patron. There are two pledge levels and each comes with unique perks, such as: early access to new pages, exclusive access to character design sheets and behind the scenes sketches. As soon as the $30.00 goal is reached, weekly updates will start immediately. And weekly updates will continue as long as pledges stay at $30 or more.

Enjoy this months bonus upload. The next update will be this coming Tuesday, June 6th.

Website Template Change by Tieback
September 20th, 2016, 3:18 pm
If you are a regular reader of this comic, you might have noticed that something looks different, and you would be correct. The original “In Silence” website template used for this webcomic either became discontinued or had a malfunction. So, I decided to give the site a makeover and choose a new website template; enter template “Classic” ! Hope you all like the change, I’m personally loving the blue! <3

On a different note, I hope you all enjoy page 16! If you would like to see the next page, page 17, visit The Archer and the Squirrel’s main site at:

New Scanner/Printer by Tieback
September 6th, 2016, 11:56 am
Hi all!

Tieback here :) As mentioned last week, I was looking to get a large bed scanner/printer for the webcomic. After doing some research, I decided on a model: Epson Work Force 7610. Luckily, this printer was available at a local office supply store. So “Archer and the Squirrel” now officially has its own printer! Page 16 is the first page scanned with the new printer. I’m super happy with the quality! I hope everyone else enjoys it too.

The next page upload will be two weeks from today on Tuesday, September 20th.

New Scanner/Printer by Tieback

Hi all!

I’ve decided to invest in my own large bed scanner/printer. I’ve started researching available models. And I hope to have the new scanner/printer within the next week or two. The comic’s original pages are hand drawn/painted on “12 x “16 watercolor paper. If anyone has a recommendation for a large bed printer/scanner, I’d love to hear it. :)

The next page will be uploaded next week Tuesday, September 6th. Yes, you read that right! Two page updates in a row! Normally, this comic updates new pages every other Tuesday, specifically the first and third Tuesday of every month. However since this August had a fifth Tuesday, you get an extra upload for August, and then the regular first Tuesday of the month upload in September. Enjoy!

Change in Updates! by Tieback
July 19th, 2016, 10:09 pm
Hi all!

I want to let everyone know that page updates will change from every Tuesday, to every other Tuesday, specifically the first and third Tuesday of every month. The most recent page, Page 12, was posted on the third Tuesday of July, so the next page will be posted the first Tuesday of August. I will switch back to my original, every Tuesday schedule, as soon as I am able.

Right now, it takes me a pretty long time to make a single page, and it’s been difficult to complete a new page every week with my other obligations. I am working hard to improve my craft and get faster through, this is one of the reasons I started a webcomic in the first place. I also want to stick to a regular updating schedule, so readers know when to expect new pages. This is why I’ve decided to change the updates to every other Tuesday, a schedule I know I can confidently stick to.

In time, as I get better and faster, I plan to switch back to updating every Tuesday. I don’t know when that will be, but I will be working hard to get to that point. I appreciate everyone who has read this comic, and I also hope everyone can be understanding and respectful of this change.

Sincerely,

Tieback
