Hello Lovelies,

I have great news! I now have all the wires and do-dads properly set up to host an illustrating live stream! And for the first stream, I’m holding a special Patreon invite only event next week! So, if you’re not yet a Patreon, there is still time to join in. To check out The Archer and the Squirrel’s Patreon Page click HERE. On Patreon, there is a survey to pick the exact date and time of the stream. That pole closes Sunday night, 3/11/18, so cast your votes now!

In other news, I’ve been working with my editor on the comic’s plot. Since I first started this comic, almost two years ago, the story has developed and grown considerably. Seriously, the current version looks nothing like the original, and I promise that’s a good thing XD. As of now, I have chapter four and five ironed out. It also became necessary to create World Maps and a World History for the comic, and that has been completed as well. I am so excited with the new direction that the story is taking, I can’t wait to share it with all of you! As always, thank you for the love and support!

The next update will be Tuesday, March 20th.

Hello Lovelies,

I recently bought a Canon VIXIA HF R800 camcorder! I’ll be using this baby in the future to make speed painting videos and live streams. Some of this content will be made public, and some will only be for Patreons. I will make a test video soon to test out the camcorder and editing software.

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.

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:
