Icons for Xisuma on Twitch (  It was a nice little training exercise to get back into drawing since coming home from the hospital!  He was also incredibly patient with me. ;u;

I have a quick announcement to make: current updates for TH are going to go on hiatus until :snowflake: December 1st, 2015 :snowflake:  I think I’ve only gone on hiatus 2 or 3 times in all the years I’ve been working on Trying Human so most of yins are aware this isn’t a regular thing.

November is a very hectic month for me this year.  I have two cons (Laughlin UFO Symposium and LosCon 2015) that I’ll be attending right in a row.  With my birthday on the 10th and Thanksgiving at the end of the month, I’m just not going to have the time to put into the new pages.  Otherwise everything will still go on as normal, such as working on the redos and other art.  Plus I really want the Volume 2 Kickstarter out in early 2016 and need the extra prep time.

Please tell all your TH friends what the plan is in case they miss this message.  I don’t want folks thinking I’m loafing through November.  Thank you for sticking with Trying Human until lovely December. :alien:

In the meantime, please check out some of the other awesome comics on Hiveworks (TH’s publisher):

PS - LosCon 2015 may or may not happen depending on if I hear back about my panel.  I thought I was invited/approved for it but it seems like it may be floating in the ether undecided.

PPS - I will still be working on Trying Human: First Tries so don't forget to check for redo updates!

I was reading Trying Human, and I couldn't help but notice that the inspiration of real-life Ufology and stuff reminded me of my own series, the Planet X Trilogy. In fact, the comedy elements of Trying Human gave me the idea of a few comedy scenes in the stories of the trilogy, specifically the Dulce Base ones (a Gray-human hybrid was made in Dulce in TH, in the Planet X Trilogy, Dulce plays a huge part in the story).

Basically, my character Pollux hacks into a computer and sends a message to the Anunnaki Emperor, stating the following: "im in ur dulce base steelin ur intel"

The Emperor then sends this to the Draconians, who carry it to the Draco Prime.

Later, after the battle in the Dulce Base spreads to ALL DUMBs in the United States and California, when Pollux and Andromeda retrieve information regarding a secret weapon held by the Anunnaki on their home planet of Nibiru, Pollux sends another message to the Draco Prime saying: "all your base are belong to us", which refers to how the Galactic Allies have created a diversion to attack the Draconian Powers full force.

I was wondering if TH had anything to do with The Little Prince? Some sort of inspiration maybe?
I just quickly drew some parallels between the two. Here they are:

The pilot stranded in the desert/also the narrator- EBE1
The Little Prince, his younger self- Hue
adults- the greys
The Rose- that's evident :D
The Lamplighter- Phillis
The Fox- Quazky
The Snake- Gracelis
The King- Glasner
The Vain Man- Roger
The Drunkard- 8 
The Baobabs- Majestic 12
The Businessman- Magnus

This makes perfect sense to me, but then I'm an INTJ. :XD: Love both stories very much. You've been very influential in my life, thought you might enjoy this little comparison. :)
