Dear Readers,

K10, my wife, and I have purchased our house today. Tomorrow we begin the process of inhabiting the home, which will take us through the next two weeks. Many other things are happening in this middle child's life that are making it increasingly difficult to maintain any kind of regular creative schedule. My Master's Degree should be completed by April, after I've completed the many extensive papers that I've been assigned. Our daughter, Danger, will be born in May. We couldn't be more excited, and now that we are in our home we can really begin to prepare for her arrival (including settling on a name other then Danger, which K10 will not allow me to put on the birth certificate.)
As a result I fear that it is you, my dear readers, who will suffer. With new content coming only sporadically what motivation will you have to return to the site? How can I keep you all happy? My greatest realization may come true, all 7 of you will stop visiting all together.
I must persevere through this! I must provide you all with the juvenile art and irrelevant daily humdrum you demand! Fear not my crazed fans, content will be uploaded when it is available, and I have a grand plan for the site that should come to fruition in the later part of the year.

Yours Always,

The Wholemolii w/ the Conclusion!

On May 1, 2008, My Alter Ego took a dramatic turn as it went from one experimental comic to a series of experimental comics with a common theme and story. This story was Skomolii. In the spirit of My Alter Ego it had a very loose structure and very rarely made any sense. One comic was created with no idea how the next would begin. The beginning of the story had no end in sight, it simply moved forward.
It has been some time since we've visited the Skomolii Saga, to find out the fate of Saltines Wilson, Dr.Cheese and his wife Maurice, and to finally find out what happens when a muderous vegetable is taken on by a little boy who prefers smarrots. I present to you now the entire Skomolii Saga, with its conclusion. Be prepared, though, this tale of a vegetable so delicious no child can stop eating it, for reasons beyond taste, is as strange as the mad scientist who started it all.

I had a good time creating the Skomolii mythos, and I think I could have taken it further given the time. However, it's time now for My Alter Ego to take a break and let What I Saw come to the forefront. I do plan to return to Skomolii in the future, perhaps creating a full length story that's a little more cohesive. I really enjoy the characters and the idea of a murderous vegetable. I look forward to hearing comments from all of you now that you can see the whole "story" together.
