Hello webcomic community! I’m not really updating with any content, but since becoming editor of Girlamatic I’ve been given lots of awesome opportunities to do things I love that are not Spades.
Now, that I’ve acquired a rather permanent location (for the time) and new employment with typical daily schedule, I’ve had more opportunities to create a more robust website that will feature Spades when it continues.

Not expecting anyone to still be around, I’m just shouting to the wind, that more is coming :)

Hey everyone!

If you could do me a huge favor and swing by the WCRCA09 page, sign up for an account (takes a second!) and nominate (on this page: http://webcomicplanet.com/events/webcomic-readers-choice-awards/wcrca-2009-nominations/

Girlamatic for Best Community Site (use the drop down to find “girlamatic”)
(while you’re at it you should join Girlamatic and see where the last 7 months of my life have gone!)
http://www.girlamatic.com if you don’t believe me! You’ll love it honest!

And also, if you don’t mind:
Nominating:

Spades for either Art, New Comic, Protagonist, Author Congeniality….(The others, well, I need more pages to count for those. After Halloween, I keep telling myself. After the move!)(use the drop down to find “spades”)
http://www.spadescomic.com if you wanna get my “Art” creds.

Thanks everyone! This means so much to us at GAM especially after the huge relaunch. We really are proud of what we’re building!

PEACE, LOVE, AND LOUD MUSIC!
-Diana

I present to you: Page 9, other wise known as “The definition of Anti-Climactic.”

Sigh. I can’t tell you what a hard freakin’ time I had with this page, and I don’t even really like it completely. Sure I love what HAPPENS on it, and I refused to throw out a meaningful glance here, and a gag there….which is what led to the stress and the incompleteness.

Also, spending about 5 months relaunching Girlamatic.com which if you love Spades and stuff like it or stuff completely the opposite of it too, you should get a free account and comment on our new blogs and comics! New Comics launching this month actually!

But YAY! SPADES! WHEW! I promise to have page 10 up before I sail away to Maine to launch next week! Also, check out my new fan art from my awesome friend Bev!

Thanks for hanging in there with me guys! See you next week! And go read Spades at Girlamatic so I can get paid! I’m gonna rig this page so it becomes that page somehow…stay tuned. I’m burnt on web design lol.

Laters,
DCM

Are down for maintenance. I just upgraded Next-gen gallery plugin, and it destroyed pretty much all I had prior to that. sigh. Well at least NOW it doesn’t suck, like it did before. I tried to find a usable jQuery solution by hand, but everything sucked more than that, and took twice as long! Thank Gods, they updated it and now it’s as if it was made to be used by busy professionals.

Also, upgraded to wordpress 2.8.3 so let me know if anything else is messed up. Looks okay so far.
I’m thinking a redesign is in order since I never had time to really rip this thing apart, and it still looks like out-of-the-box comicpress. Blech.

Laters,
Diana

So along with a ton of other awesome people, including a ton og old and new girlamatic creators, Spades made it into the digital companion gallery exhibition!

yay! Maybe I should update to celebrate! XD
If you’re in the San Fran area on August 8th, 2009 you should check it out and let me know how it is! It’s at the Cartoon Art Museum If you get a picture for me I’ll draw you original art :) Email me if you’re around the area! I wish I could go!

So, it’s live! http://www.girlamatic.com
WHEW.

I’m editor over there now, but since the last four months were spent on nothing but development and organization, I can now give my free time back to Spades :D

I’ll be syndicating Spades from GAM to here. If you want to support Spades you can either donate here, click on ads here, or Visit Girlamatic and participate in the community. As Editor I run the site, and only get paid on ad revenue.
So the more eyeballs, the more frequently I can eat :)

More soon!

So hi.

I can’t tell you how many times I have (not) updated Spades.
The sad truth is that it’s not my day job right now. Girlamatic.com is.
(I still can’t believe that I’m being paid to overhaul a site I love so much, and that I’ve been a part of so long as sustainable income.

Spades, as most of your know, is apart of Girlamatic.com as has been since the spring of 2002. So when Girlamatic.com relaunches on JULY 31, 2009. And for the past couple months, I’ve been doing nothing, and I mean pretty much nothing, other than Girlamatic.

Spades will continue with regular updates, possible every two weeks, after Girlamatic.com launches.

Thanks for your patience, and read blogs and comics at Girlamatic.com, there’s some awesome things there and more to come!

So, yes, not dead.

Work and life got very very interesting and a bunch of new projects cropped up.
Drawing needs to take a higher priority though!

And starting this weekend it will!
Thanks for hanging in there with me. I really do wish comics was my full time gig, but I got a great paying thing right now, and that takes most of my time in general.

Be back soon!
