So, as I announced on Tuesday: Monsterkind will be taking a short hiatus!

Here are the deets:

It has been nearly a year since I took an real honest-to-goodness-actual vacation/break from work. In the past few months, I have been ever so swiftly spiraling towards burnout, and after a rough tax season along with various other stresses and mishaps, I've decided the best thing for me right now, the thing that will help me recover most both physically and mentally, is to put a pause on work and take it easy.

I had a lot (and I mean a LOT) of reservations about putting the comic on pause. Missing an update is one thing, but taking an actual full break from comic work? I haven't seriously contemplated that before, so it was a bit of a hurdle to come to this decision.

Thanks to a lot of convincing, and a lot of encouragement from my wonderful partner Zack Morrison (read Paranatural!!), we came up with a plan to make this break not so bad for everyone.

Here are the DEETS OF THE DEETS (tl;dr edition):

-Monsterkind is going on break for 1 month to give me some time to recover and rest

-During that time, Zack and I will be partnering up to produce 8 short 4-koma style comics to post in the interim

-The site will update Tuesdays + Fridays with these short comics during my month long break

I know this break seems sort of sudden, but I promise I wouldn't do something like this if I didn't wholeheartedly believe it was worth it.

I am so grateful to have the support I do, and I hope, come one month from now, you'll be as excited as I am to return to the comic!

Until then, I hope you enjoy the comics Zack and I will be posting. We're very excited to share them with you, and we hope you'll have some laughs!

Thank you so much as always,

-Taylor C. <3
