Ready for some new strips!?!?!?

The move went great and the family is adjusting well!!! The Lil’ Miesters are anxious to get some brand new strips rolling again and in just 5 short days, the laughs will be BRAND NEW!!! I want to thank everyone for understanding the hiatus from new strips due to our family moving into a new home. It’s a lot of work and a lot to get settled. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your patience!!!

Life has a way of throwing curves. This particular curve is a good one though! With a hectic work schedule here, Wizard World Convention this weekend and a even busier week next week….I need to take a small hiatus. I have uploaded old strips that some of you may not have seen before to give you something while I am away. New strips will start again on September 8th! I hope that you all will hang in there with me and look forward to more fun and laughter with the Lil’ Miesters starting new September 8th!!! I thank you in advance for your understanding!!

Guilty feelings!!!

I am feeling so guilty about not being able to post any new strips until Monday!!!! How bout some retro stuff to tide you over!? Thank you so much for understanding my situation. I don’t make a lot of money doing my own strip, so when i have big deadlines to meet for a paying job, I need to get that done first…..please, accept my apologies and here is some retro Lil’ Miesters to tide you over til Monday when new strips start up again!!!!

Paying the bills

Hi all,

I need to take a few days off from the strip as I have become very busy with paying freelance jobs and I am swamped. I need to take a few days to catch up and I need to prepare for a convention this Saturday. So due to the very busy schedule the next few days, new strips will resume on Monday. Sorry for the delay, but I know you understand and I thank all of you so much for your patience when I get bogged down like this! My readers are the BEST!!!!!!!!! Comment on this if you would like me to post some throw back strips up to hold you over til Monday!


Parts unknown

I apologize for the lack of giggles today….We are in parts unknown by modern man……I may have just seen a Bigfoot having tea with a Unicorn…..We will return with brand new strips on Monday…until then, please enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!!!! See you Monday!

Convention Weekend

Hi folks! It was a long weekend at a convention, so please pardon the absence of a new strip today. I am just wiped and drained from the busy weekend! I would like to share with my readers a few pictures from the con though! New strips start up again tomorrow as Ned returns home from Memphis! Thank you for your understanding and continued support!

Busy Busy Busy!

Sorry for the lack of a new strip today…I had a couple very big jobs I had to finish in the freelance world, and as they say…..PAID jobs come first…..I would like to offer up a link to my Patreon page though. If you like my work on the Lil’ Miesters, and would like to add your support……it will help me be able to lessen my freelance work and more time toward putting out the Lil’ Miesters and promotions….any support is appreciated! I truly hope you are enjoying reading my comic strip as much as I love producing them for you all! Thank you sincerely for reading and watch for a brand new strip tomorrow! Here is the link to the Patreon if you are interested. It’s worth checking out, just to watch the funny video my son and I made! Patreon Linkpatreon_pic
