Regarding the bit in Scots-Gaelic: Càite or "Càit" is not "Kate", as I've seen a few guess so far.

The line is repeated in English when Jeremy's on the beach. There's no important information in Scots-Gaelic that isn't delivered in English, we promise.

This one might take a little longer to load, so make yourself a cup of tea while it's loading. I upped the image quality since the episode is so dark, so it's a bigger file than usual. Just in time for Christmas! Nice!

For those of you so inclined, you can now follow us on Twitter.

Handy for updates and episode progress without needing to subscribe to each episode-progress thread on the forum! Also good for random news, when random things of newsworthiness occur.

Also: Ep 20 inking is done, and I'm now onto the scanning and toning bit. Second last step - getting ever so close now!

Only 4 more pages to draw and I'll be over the long bit.

Teaser pic!

I'll be interstate this coming week, but will get back into those final pages when I get home. Then onto the much faster inking stage!

Yep, crossed that halfway mark!  Had a work caning since the last update which has meant slowed progress on Grit, but hopefully that'll ease off a bit next week (without of course easing too much. Oh the delicate balance!). Apologies for a less that thrilling teaser panel, but once again anything other than Kate and André is way too spoilery, especially Jeremy. So you'll have to wait for the whole ep to get the OMG bits, and believe me, there are OMG bits.


...Just that that's not one of them. Too bad!

And before I forget AGAIN (I've seriously been meaning to mention this since before ep 19 went live): THERE IS A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS! If, in the last year or so (yes, I know) you've emailed the old address (the platinumgrit.com one), you might not have had a response from me because spammers got hold of the domain email addy and we couldn't fix it. Our SP was cracking the shits and I have zero computer savvy, so we ended up leaving the old addy to the cobwebs. Instead, there is a new Grit email address:

clanmacconnor at gmail dot com

Again, apologies for any unanswered emails, and for forgetting to mention this earlier (memory of a goldfish, I swear).

I'm third of the way through the art on ep 20, and thought it might be time for a teaser glimpse. Apologies for the munted quality, I may have to have words with the scanner:

Any teasers are pretty much just going to be André or Kate, lest things be too spoiler-ed.

I FAIL. (in fuchsia)


Huge HUGE apologies, but there was a missing frame from episode 19 in the uploaded flash file. It is now fixed, and the episode is complete (which explains that André was never involved with Nils - I was wondering where the fuck that idea was coming from until Danny called me and said "um...").


My fault completely - that's what I get for pushing through to 3am (and hey, I'm doing it again)! I'm sorry for any confusion.

The Lulu editions of collected Grit are no more. Why? Because Shadowline is publishing us! Woohoo!

A brand spanking new Grit volume 1 (collecting episodes 1 - 5) is being published by the wonderful folk at Shadowline. Unlike the Lulu volumes, it'll be swanky lookin', with nice crisp printing!

You'll be able to find it in the March solicitations in Previews (January edition) in the Image Comics section:

So now you can buy Grit from your local comics shop or bookstore (wherever in the world you are!), or Amazon - ask your comic shop of choice to order you in one!


ETA: If anyone's been trying to email me over the last couple of months, my apologies. Our 'net computer has been hit hard with viruses, and we're still battling with the dying thing. I will sort out the "Buy" link on the Grit website as soon as I can. 

And yes, poor ep 19 is still coming. Promise.

Still alive, still crawling along. Only 6 more pages to draw of this 65 page nearly-killed-me-numerous-times behemoth. Here's the last preview pencil before I commence inking:

Lots of stuff. Part of the reason we're so late is that 2008 didn't actually happen.

More reasons next time!  : D
