Certainly not my intent , being that with the conclusion of the 2013
season " A Snarky Fangsgrieving " I was psyched up to take Snarky onto bigger and better things during 2014 .Life had other plans .

casualty of corporate cost-cutting and that pretty much put a screeching halt to everything I was doing creatively .
Now five and a half months later , I'm back working as a freelance
artist ( this translates to being broke all the time ) and looking at
ways to make money by doing what I do which is draw , paint and
|Ideas never die , the good ones evolve|
or hundreds of hours building sets and props for Snarky the Elf's
Annual Holiday Extravaganzas , but that's okay since I had
already begun considering alternative and simpler ways to work
with her on a more regular basis , saving the fumetti spectaculars
for the holiday specials . In the end it all comes down to the filthy
lucre with which to fund these creative excursions and since
Snarky began as a free entertainment medium it's something I have
tried to preserve , although the result of this is " no Snarky "
which really is a disservice to her as well as her fans .

crowdfunding platforms and creator sponsorships ; creators no
longer have to endlessly pitch to unimaginative editors-in-chiefs
their ideas - they can now go to the people who like their work and pitch them instead , building a foundation of support from the ground up to fund their creative impulse and this might very well be the future of Snarky The Elf , Buttercup and Hunnypie , Princess Vivian , Rhubarb and the rest . . . ( I had to pay homage to
Gilligan's Isle here . )

keep her website open , and devoting time to developing the 3D
Doll versions into my own original interpretations for a 2D
illustrated comic format all at a no income generating phase so I
still face the distance between " inspiration " and " reality " that
" no budget " carries with it . At this stage of the new Snarky
Game it's all smoke and mirrors hoping to survive long enough to
make it actually happen .
|Characters ntroduced at the end of the 2013 Season , finally get their shot .|
and part of my plan is to build a cornerstone that will allow me to
provide rewards for individual support - a " secret circle " of die-
hard fans to join me in bringing Snarky back and setting her up to
reach a wider audience to help support the effort of the work .
