Perhaps we need more bran? Well i dont' think that will help our cartoon out put but anyway...
Sorry for the infrequent posts folks it's been crazy (thankfully... i like to eat) but in the next couple of weeks Mr. Steve Wei and I will be free of our other obligations and will be working on the next batch of Minions and getting back to a weekly schedule. So it will be a little sporadic for a bit with teh updates for a couple weeks but we WILL BE BACK!

Howdy folks. It's crazy busy for us here but instead of missig out on a week I've decided to spilt the lastest Minions into seperate parts and post them up a bit at a time. So next week when you tune in to the adventures of Francis and Cedric and see this same strip again... just scroll down a bit and part 2 of this "page" will be there added on to the bottom of part one.

Well ok it isn't even about the quality either ..really it's the business.. but rest assured that we will be back to a weekly schedule soon. It' s been crazy busy for both of us. Also I lost a bet and so I've been creating all my new artwork with my teeth. Which not surprisingly takes more time.
Far more time for example then making up lies about why we have been irregularily posting the strip, and almost as much fun.
