Its been a hard week for me this. One that has made me realize that for the next couple of weeks and maybe months bean will only update on mondays. It’s a hard choice and i still plan to update, but i need to make sure my family’s financial stability and my health come first. This is something that happens with webcomics. Most like bean are a labor of love more than a means of financial stability. This choice will allow me to build my buffer again and at the same time finish some jobs that will bring in some much needed income.  So look for Bean updates every monday for the next little while.

Thanks again for your understanding

Priorities, priorities. Family and health first. Then you'll be able to produce webcomics in the proper order of thingss.

I'll miss my Thursday "Bean" fix, but it's sure not worth you working yourself into a hospital or worse. Do what you need to do. Your health and your family come first.

And, hey. You're still way ahead of many webcomics I've read, where the artist just quits updating both the comic and the news, leaving the reader wondering if they just somehow fell off the face of the Earth. It's a lot easier to take, knowing the story IS going to continue, instead of wondering if the artist is ever going to come back and finish the tale.

Trav, I'd keep coming back and continue voting even if you only updated monthly. Take care of your family and your paying work. w appreciate what you do. I'll complete my "the Bean" book set whenever. I suspect there's a lot more stories yet to come.

No worries, Trav. I've seen far too many a smart webcomic close down because the creators went for too ambitious an update schedule in the face of too busy of personal and professional schedules. I think you've given us a terrific and wonderful story so far and would hate for it to become another Blip or Xylia Tales. Take care.

You provide free entertainment of imo high quality, and have so for a long time.
You are right, family comes first. I will keep on following Bean no matter how often, or seldom you can to update.
Good luck with the story, your finces and everything.
