So you aren't actually using MS Paint to draw these, right?

Damn, exposed as a fraud right out of the gate!

No, you're right, I use Photoshop. I started out in MS Paint (in fact, the only image on this site done in Paint is the very first one). But I quickly switched to Photoshop. I needed to be able to keep things on separate layers in an organized series of files as the stories built in complexity. "MS Paint Adventures" was what I named the game before any of this became an issue though, and the name just stuck.

All of Problem Sleuth, Bard Quest and Jailbreak (sans the first page) were drawn (and sometimes animated) in Photoshop. Same with Homestuck, except for a few pages made with Flash here and there, to facilitate sound and interactive elements.

So how did this all start, anyway?

I started it as a game in an online forum. The idea was exactly the same, but people would post their command suggestions in the thread, and I would reply to the thread with images. Pretty much the entire Jail Break adventure was developed in this format. I moved it to its own website for archival purposes.

What is the site's update schedule?

There isn't one! Unless you count "a lot" as a schedule. I'm usually putting stuff up just about every day, and usually multiple pages with each update. But I reserve the right to miss an "update day" here and there. Or even disappear for a week if I want to. I sort of like to think I can do whatever I want.

What do you use to do animation?

Mostly Photoshop CS3 (Problem Sleuth) but lately, Flash too (Homestuck).

Do you accept donations?

Yeah!

Who made the music in Homestuck?

These talented people, specifically for the story.

I have questions about science!

Ok! I wrote a science FAQs page to answer some of those questions.

Problem Sleuth is sort of complicated. It could use a wiki.

You're in luck!

Why is Problem Sleuth so long?

Because that is how long it took to tell the story!

Who are you, and why are you throwing all this weird shit all up in our business?

My name is Andrew, and I have done some other stuff too. As for why I'm doing this, my objective is merely to make your day just a little more fucking awesome.

Just going to leave this here for now, and assume that the kids these days will know what to do with it.

Here is a quick look at the way this project has been shaping up. Whew, that is a nice looking game! Not going to lie, I am on some big time tenterhooks in anticipation of this release. I've actually started doing stunts on the tenterhooks, flipping around on them wildly, like a gymnast. It's an astounding spectacle of physical endurance and might. Sorry you can't check this out, it's absolutely unreal.

What else have I been up to? I sense that this has been being wondered about. Some I suspect wonder about the epilogue I mentioned, which I have been making some notes on here and there. But otherwise have been deferring in favor of attention to ~other projects~ which strike me as more pressing. It will be gotten around to. If you are wondering which of these projects may be related to Homestuck, I did have some "post-canon content" planned for later this month. That is as specific as I can be for now. Tune in here, let's say, a couple weeks from now.

The project that has occupied the lion's share of my professional time is one that you will understand completely why I have prioritized, when you eventually see it. Arguably it will prove to be the only relevant work of art in human history. I don't wish to give anything else away, or delay your experience of this unprecedented triumph of the human spirit. So instead I will light a fire under my ass, and attempt to deliver the content I know you have all been craving.

What else to report? Hmm. I know that usually the passage of time for creative individuals is tracked by the hours they spend which ultimately contribute to creative products which may be consumed. It is far from true that all of my hours this year have been applied that way. Suffice to say I've been on some strange adventures. I doubt I can do any of them justice here, in a newspost which is rapidly running out of words I'm willing to type. At one point I was thrown out of a stable. I've probably said too much already. Well, see you next time.

The final Homestuck album Volume 10 has been released. More fantastic music by many familiar names who have contributed to the comic over the years. Thanks to all who came together to make this. It's a great way to cap off an impressive discography, now standing at 27 albums.
