Updates + Discord Server!

Fanart Page
Took some time today to update the fanart page with submissions I have been putting off because I am lazy. Feeling the need to draw attention to a particular submission by Scimok because, mad lad went out of his way to draw a whole comic!

Click here to check out the rest of the fanart page! If you submitted fanart and don't see it on that page, it's because I'm incredibly unorganized, feel free to contact me to let me know!

Discord Server
Decided to make a Discord server! Not going to lie, not exactly creating it to form any sort of community, mostly going to use it as a place to keep track of fanart/cameos for myself lmao, but also a place for readers to get updates for uploads since I don't update on a schedule at all. But I'm not at all against ppl chatting in it!
Click here to join!

Thank you!
Lastly, recently I passed 100 subscribers, and I'm still incredibly in disbelief over it. I remember being surprised when I hit 50, lol. So I just want to say thank you so much to everyone who reads, comments, rates, and contributes in any and all ways! It means so much, you have no idea. Thank you!

Season 2 Launch + New Website Pages + Shop

by Shipp on 3rd Jul 2022, 2:27 AM
It's finally here! Season 2 launches today and with it, a lot of changes to the site, starting with a few new pages! To the website, not the comic. Those come at a slower pace.

-Credits Page
First off is a Credits page where I've painstakingly compiled every single contribution into one location, complete with images for every one, and links back to the creators. If you're in there and I've made an error in any way, or even want me to promote anything else for you in it, please let me know! I would be happy to fix it for you!

-Website page for full-page ads that appear in print
Secondly, all of the ads that have been put together for the print issues of Bananas have a page on the site here too, seeing as far fewer people will be seeing them in print, I don't want that effort to go to waste!

-Merch shop! (RedBubble)
Thirdly, I made a merch shop! I put everything as stickers only except for one design that's titled "View More Products" that's available on a lot more. Not going to lie, I made the shop mostly for myself lol, I just always wanted to see something I made on random stupid products, and now you can too if you feel like it! If you have any ideas for merch or stickers, let me know!

As for said print copies, I ordered a batch of 20 that I'm sending first to family, friends, and contributors. Sent out the first batch yesterday, and if you are a contributor and would like a copy as well, let me know! After all of them are shipped, I'll see about doing a giveaway for what's left!

And as always, thank you to every single one of you for reading, commenting, and contributing art to this project! It's been a lot of fun and I am incredibly grateful, and I hope Bananas can continue to bring you joy for as long as I have ideas for it!

Done for now.

Hey guys. I'm really sorry.
an unexpected move across the country happened just as I was trying to take this comic more seriously. I just bought a domain, opened up a shop I only got to make a tiny bit of merch for and didn't even get to announce.

I was hoping getting a new job would give me opportunities to work on the comic during my breaks as I did at my last job, but, my breaks are half as long and I barely even get to open up my iPad, and I don't have the time nor the drive to work on it at home.

Might as well rip the band aid off instead of keeping you guys waiting in the dark. I doubt anything will change any time soon. Bananas is done for now. Maybe some time I'll get back on it, but I don't know.

With what little time I have anymore, I'm going to keep working on the book, I don't expect much, if any purchases, but I'm doing it for myself. Just to say I finished something

Maybe I'll keep working on it at times but I'll try to get bulk done instead of giving such a tiny trickle of random updates like I have been.

I'm very sorry to all of my readers. I was really proud of the reader base I managed to gather, and was just really getting into it myself. 

Some delays

Hey guys, I just want to apologize for taking so long to come out with any new pages. I've been packing up my things in Indiana, and on November 2nd, I'm moving all the way to Los Angeles, so, it's been kind of a busy week, and in my off time, I just haven't felt like drawing.
But soon, I should hopefully be back on track once I get everything ready and get settled in. Thank you for being patient! 

Site Updates and Party Cameos!

by Shipp on 16th Oct 2021, 2:10 AM
Site Updates:
Okay so I'm going to try to treat this comic as a bit more of a real thing now. I started by finally adding a Characters page and a Fan Art page! I'm also planning on making a page for extra art, concept art, full res cameo/contributor art, etc! If there's anything else you'd like to see, let me know!

Party Cameos:
Speaking of cameos, the party scene we're in right now still has a lot of pages left to go through, if any of you would like to contribute cameo art to fill out my backgrounds, er, have fun cool cameos and get credited/linked back, comment or DM or something!

Thanks to every single one of you who reads, comments, does fan art, contributes page art, subscribes, etc, to my silly little experimental shitpost of a comic. You have no idea how much it means to me, and it makes me want to treat this thing a little more seriously. I hope I do not disappoint!
