Added 1 new A* page:My brother and his family will be stopping by for a visit as they pass through town on Thursday, yay! : D So it's possible I won't get a page done that day, depending on how things shake out. But maybe we'll go get ice cream! : D

Added 1 new A* page:Thanks to everyone helping me bring you new pages each weekday by supporting the comic through my Patreon campaign! : D Even $1 a month is a big help to me, and those able to pitch in at higher levels can even get unique A* rewards sent directly from me each and every month! F'r'instance, here's a sketch I got to send to a reader one recent month for their support at the $10 level:

  Neutrino from supermassive black hole foundJul 12, 2018 10:25 PM PDT | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:The IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica uses scores of optical sensors buried 2 km under the ice to look for flashes of light caused by highly charged particles moving through the ice at faster than the normal speed of light in that medium, a phenomenon known as Cherenkov radiation.
 
These flashes that far below the surface almost certainly result only from impacts of high-energy neutrinos, which are capable of passing right through the Earth without hitting anything at all—but once in a while, one does, and a new BBC article describes how, last year, IceCube detected the trail of a very high energy neutrino that scientists have now tracked all the way back to a 100 million solar mass supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy 4 billion light years away, "just off the shoulder of the constellation Orion."
 
It's the first direct evidence showing high energy neutrinos can come from supermassive black holes!

  Now accepting art commissions : oJul 09, 2018 10:23 PM PDT | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:Okay I'm currently accepting art commissions—the link for that is in the site's main menu, as well as that big baby blue "artwork commissions" link under the social media bar on the comic pages.
 
All the details are on the commissions info page itself; the short version is that I charge $25/hour. But do read the commissions page if you're really interested, it talks about how communication, shipping, and other probably necessary stuff will be handled.
 
I only have so many spare hours per week (like, 2-ish?) to spend on commissions, so if I somehow get more than a few people commissioning me at once I'll switch the commission page off again until I can clear up my work load. You'll be able to tell at a glance on the front page if commissions are closed, because the "commission me" link in the site menu under the comic will be crossed out, and the big blue "artwork commissions" link under the social media bar won't be there!

At the $10 level you get a new sketch from me each month! But even just $1 a month is a big help. : ) Thanks everyone who's helping me out through Patreon!
