Hey everyone! Amy, here.

You may have noticed, we’re taking a two week breather from [citation needed] because I’m about to move across the country to Seattle! No really, check out my trip! (link or screenshot http://goo.gl/maps/8uTu2) That is over 3,000 grueling miles and 50 hours of driving in just under 5 days.

Don’t worry though, I’ll be posting pictures and content all along the way to my Instagram account (amytfalcone) which cross posts to Twitter (@amytfalcone) for MAXIMUM CONVENIENCE. Even though the comic is taking a break, I’ll be updating every day with pictures and drawings from the road, so you won’t even have time to miss me!

I’d also like to take a moment to thank everyone for the huge amount of support I’ve received, especially those who have offered financial assistance to me over the past few days. I can’t begin to tell you all how much it means to me that you would help a stranger like me move across the country to begin my new life and career as a cartoonist. I have decided to accept some of the help offered to me… but I’d like to offer something in exchange.

For all donations above $30 USD I’ll be doing single-subject sketches as my way of saying “Thank You!” I’ll be posting them to my travel album from the road, then scanning them all in after I’ve moved in. Again, any and all help is so appreciated. I just want to give a little something extra to those who send me a little extra!  ;D

Finally, we are really excited to announce that ACTION FOOD is moving to Wednesday nights and we are launching an all-new comic! We’ve tweeted about this, but it’s called Dinosandwich 64. It’s written by Chris and illustrated by Mary Tanner (@RTgrl_) of Internet Webcomic! This is a pretty big deal for us because it’s the first time someone other than Chris or I have worked on a project here at FP. Big doins, kids.

I set sail in the morning… can’t believe this is all thanks to my time on Strip Search! What an inspiration.
