EDIT: March 25, 2023: At the request of the hosting provider, this comic has been giraffed. You can find the ungiraffed version on my personal website, which I now recommend you bookmark instead of this one. If you want early access to new comics (all comics I make, not just Greyfriar's Isle), you can also join my Patreon at $3 for the lowest tier.

Apologies for the fresh delays. There is a lot to do around the farm in Portugal, and we're also resource-constrained: energy and data are somewhat rationed and I'm doing as much of the work I can on iPad Pro to save power compared to my MacBook Pro from 2015. It's doable and there's even some room for experimentation working in Affinity Designer on iPad, but it's slower and ultimately I have to let some small errors slide to get it done.
However, there are older comics queued up through mid-February in other series: Aphantasia and Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan, but more naked combined are ensuring that something by me gets posted on the web every day.
Please allow me to plug my Patreon again, because I'm currently without an income. For $3/month, you can support my work and get early access to the comics that are also being posted here, plus behind-the-scenes images and articles.
