Hiatus Time!

Hiatus Time! published on 55 Comments on Hiatus Time!

Skin Deep is going on a hiatus! I won’t lie, it might be kind of long one! But don’t worry, every weekday starting April 16th I’ll be doing READER QUESTIONS!

Patreon supporters will get first crack at asking Reader Questions, but I’ll consider any and all questions to answer, you can ask them right here or on the Patreon post if you’d like!

Other Skin Deep things I’ll be doing during the hiatus:
-Updating the website (sorely needed)
-Putting together the 4th Skin Deep book
-Writing Skin Deep scripts
-Patreon Pin Club

So thank you everyone for your patience! I’m sorry I can’t definitely say when Skin Deep will return, but I’ll be providing updates regularly, so don’t worry!


Here’s a question that’s been bugging me for a while, How are baby Griffins fed? Are they nursed like mammals or does their mother regurgitate food down their throats?

Congrats on finishing another chapter!

I have a question for Anthony, assuming that he’s had some time to meet more folks in the Avalon (or if the author wants to give him some extra knowledge just for the sake of answering the question–I’d like his options to be open).

If you couldn’t be human, but could choose which creature you are, what would you choose?

I have a question for anyone except Ravi.
Many human myths portray conversations between humans and mythical creatures, and even some mundane animals. And it’s widely acknowledged that in an earlier era of the world, all creatures could speak freely with one another. Why was this hidden?

I have two questions: one, is homeschooling the only option in the Avalons, or do they have their own schools set up inside? Two, is anyone a fan of the obscure superhero Aztek in the skin deep universe?
Love your comic, have for a while, best of luck with the hiatus break thing.

Are Avalons general a safe place for the LGBT mythical community? Are there support groups for the lgbt community or support groups in general for the newly turned/monster/endangered communities? Are there certain holidays that are only celebrated by certain species [not regionally] and if so, what are they?

Any frog based mythical creatures that may show up or would exist in the setting? As someone who feels a strong connection to them im curious what on the mythical side are linked to frogs?

Also are there any pendant races we have not seen? It seems what pendants there are have all been created with no more (for the time being) being created. So seems whatever was in the regions of egypt Europe is it.

I though I asked my question(s) already but I must’ve forgot to hit enter.

Any knowledgeable Wonderlander: How accurate was ol’ Charles’ depiction of Wonderland, compared to the avalon itself?

…or if that might be too Exposé on future content…

Rupert: Do you know you’re very adorable when you’re flustered?

Kory, I’m really curious now, and you don’t have to sketch it if something more interesting is about, but I’d still like to know – in the Skin Deep universe, what are the differences between Fauns and Satyrs? I’ve been looking around on line and it seems like they were, classically speaking, interchangeable – with Fauns being Roman Satyrs, or Satyrs being Greek Fauns with minor differences.

Heh, I kinda guessed the reason for their using pipes was obvious, their faces are FURRY and cigarettes near fur can cause unpleasant and potentially embarrassing or odious issues. Two examples are burned tobacco stink for one, burned fur for another…

I have ONE question, are there any NON terran entities other than angelics and demons who’ve made our little blue ball home?

So who decides what gets defined as mythical/cryptid/whatever name we’re using vs plain old natural animals? Like, why are certain non sentient and non magical creatures like Stanley or the momo be kept a secret while others like tigers are not?

Is there only one totem animal per species or are there many? And if only one then what about sub-species? For example, would there be only one totem for all tinctorus dart frogs or one each for the many distinct sub varieties?
Love your work!

Not really a question. But considering you’ve drawn Heraldic lions before I just want to link you to another comic’s take on them which you might find amusing. In particular Finland’s very special lion.

If nothing else I’d like to see your own take on that very special lion.

I have a question. have you ever seen a woodblock painting called An Auspicious Beast; The Twelve Precepts? It’s supposed to combine the 12 Chinese Zodiac creatures into one animal. I wonder what such a beast would look like in your art style?

So I wonder what creatures exist that are similar to a leopard gecko because personally I find them to be the most charming little lizards I’ve ever seen. They are my ideal when I think of dragons. They seem like behind their eyes swirls an almost infinite well of ancient unknowns of the universe. It secretly amuses and pleases them so. Like they get to watch us make the same amazing discoveries that they’re dying to tell us, but it will be infinitely better to watch us live through the experience.


1) Thanks so much for doing reader questions during the hiatus. It’s real nice to still have something to look at while you take a deserved break.

2) Would you please draw any of your cast as a gargoyle (like the Disney’s Gargoyles show)? Or if you had a Gargoyles OC, can we see them and know something about them?

Are totems born or do they somehow come into existence? Are they born from humans or only other totems? If the populations of a certain animal suddenly made a jump in numbers (ie: breeding programs to save endangered species or whatnot) would there be an increase of those totems, or would the existing ones just get more powerful?
