This one went up the Tuesday after Christmas, so I didn't get around to posting it until now. Sorry! I really enjoyed my Internet-free holidays, though.

Aaaaaaand... that's it! As I resolved, I posted an Activities comic every week in 2010. That's fifty-two comics, you guys! This was a really good exercise, and I feel like I got a lot better about just sitting down and writing instead of waiting for inspiration to strike. It also really helped me to have the discipline of a weekly post.

However, I'm going to give it a rest for a while. Activities was deliberately designed as a very static, minimal comic, but that means that I'm not really learning anything from drawing it. I feel like I need a bigger challenge this year, one that will push me a bit. So, I've begun work on a graphic novel. So far I'm in the planning and design stage but I'm about to start writing a script. I'm really excited about this!

What wonderful things are you planning for 2011?

Congrats! That's so many comics, I envy your dedication!
I also think this is one of the funniest webcomics of them all (let alone cutest). Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Haha, great closing strip! This is quite the achievement, Jess! Awesome work. I'm with you on needing bigger challenges. I basically want to write something longer than a short story this year - six draft chapters is a start but the trick is to keep on going. Everything's an endurance test these days! All the best for your graphic novel. Can't wait to read it! :D

Well, I'm gonna miss seeing those little guys every week, but if you're moving on to a bigger project, it's best. More power to your hand and brain!

Good luck on the next project. Just so you know, this comic will be missed. It always made me laugh.

First, I would like to thank you for giving us the pleasure of 52 Activities for Rainy Days comics. They were much enjoyed!

Second, I am looking forward to seeing your graphic novel. I don't know what it is, but I can hardly wait!
