as said, i'd love to know what you thought of the whole bloddy thing...or if you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer :)

feel free to leave a comment, or email me ( or drop a line on my tumblr!

I probsbly didn't write enough names there- so many people have been so amazing in the making of this comic..and fuck, the names i did write, i have not thanked enough...

needless to say there are also a bunch of people who properly inspied this comics characters- so here's to my college and uni friends, you all totally inspired this comic. jake especially, who was the first hipster EVER in our community, and it's thanks to him that i hate and love everything considered indie.

i started this comic literally right after finishing university- it's weird to think that's 3 1/2 years of my life. woh..!

i'll still be lounging around on smackjeeves reading comics...keep an eye out on here for more junk in the future!!

AND YEAH- THANKYOU ETERNALLY FOR YOUR READERSHIP!!!! you've no idea how much it means to me..thank you.

//runs off to cry. love you all xxxxxxxxx

Literally shed a tear. I have loved this comic from start to finish and it's been such an inspiration to me. I don't know how you do it but all your characters just seem so /human/ and real; if this were real life all the events in this comic would just be day to day things you wouldn't pay attention to - there's none of the dramaticness you get in a fantasy comic for example - but you've represented and analysed them so well that they just seem natural in a way I don't see often between comic characters. And of course your art is gorgeous, it really gives the comic a light-hearted summery feel.

I'm going to miss this comic so much, I've followed it for years now and I'll miss looking forward to updates but I wish you all the very best in your future endeavours C: Now off to read it from the very beginning again!

AHH I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S OVER..... i'm gonna re-read it ASAP... mmmmm

i really liked the ending, the timeskip wrapped things up so nicely! and i liked the sense of stuff still continuing in the characters' lives behind the curtain.. like i don't get that with comics that often, but i think the mysterious person in the last page helped with that a lot *_*

alsooo i can't believe you have two finished big comics haha you are soso productive, it's an inspiration ahh i can't wait til your next story :- D!! CONGRATS ON FINISHING SUMMER OF BLAKE!!!!!!! (really cool that it ended in august, when summer's almost over.. whoa..)

It was a ride like no other, and I've never been happier to take part in it.
I look forward to your next work, and I hope we see it soon!
Best of luck!

Man damn shit, i am so grateful for this comic, im so glad i decided to sit my butt down and read it even though it already had a lot of pages when i decided to do so, im a bad reader when it comes to page count, i guess the art just really lured me in at first and then the story kept me going and im so eternally glad i did because this has a been a great ride and i cannot stress enough how lifelike this is, how human it is, you are so good at writing these characters its weird to think you wont be doing it anymore, like.. they become a part of you, yanno? they became a part of me too and i was only a reader so i cant even image what it must be like to you, but then again i guess you never really do let go of them fully, they always have a place in your mind. Im getting emotional also because this was how i got to know you!! damn, i mean if i hadn't read this comic and decided to comment that one time (i was really nervous) we wouldn't even know of each other, that's so weird to think about.. that's another reason i like this comic so much to be honest, i feel like i have so much to say but i cant put it into the words i need, but damn, this is such a great comic and i loved the ending, it felt like the right place to end it, im a little sad its over but im so happy for you for finishing this project, you did such a good job and im really proud of you wow ok i'll shut up before i make a fool outta myself haha

Oh my god, so this finally ends! I followed your webcomic since the first few pages, and since then I'm madly in love with your style and characters. I kept reading all the time, even though I haven't left much comments, but I want to thank you for that wonderful, enjoyable time you gave me (us)! I really hope there will be other comics made by you in the future, I will totally look forward to this! Until then, I hope you have a good time. It's amazing how long you kept this comic going, you spoiled us with so much pages, great art and dialouges and you truly made something very special and unique. I'm sad this ends now xD! The Summer of Blake Sinclair, it was truly a part of my life for this time.

And I want to thank you also for your music recommendations, specially Vampire Weekend. I haven't known them before and thanks to you, they became one of my favorite bands.

Thank you!

Aaah! I was so looking forward to seeing how this would wrap up, but dreading the little hole it would leave in my life. It ended so beautifully :'D I'm looking forward to all your future projects though...I'm sure they'll be just as lovely and thought-provoking and will carve out a new place in my heart in no time flat. Thanks a million billion for sharing this xxxx

You are an amazing story teller and I look forward to seeing what else you have in store. I thought I would be terribly sad that one of my all time favorite smackjeeves comics was ending, but I feel the exact opposite. I am happy you shared this amazing story with us and helped me come to the realization that all spectacular things must come to a satisfying conclusion eventually.

When I saw the "completed" status upon logging into smackjeeves, my heart broke a little bit... You did such an incredible job on this whole comic though, and I've been enjoying it from day 1!! THANK YOU for sharing it with us, and I'll be waiting excitedly for your other work and stories in the future! <3

*cant stop the feels*

okay this is the first time I've ever followed a comic this in depth for so long , i feel almost bad that I wasn't here for the first 2 chapters because this has been such a journey. I can not stop gushing over the absolutely amazing story this comic has, this is a "real " story it feels like its been lived before by thousands of people , the journey of growing and changing . I am so excited to see where you take us next ,we as your fans have been completely doubled over in feelings during some of this comic and its very rare for me to be moved by something that is seemingly so nonthreatening XD .
im so excited for more and I'm so happy to of been a dedicated S.O.B.S follower <3

Q-Q I can't believe it's over! But I think this was a great way to end it! There is closure for the past and so many great possibilities for the future showing through! I love it!


August 9th, 2014, 9:19 am

CONGRATULATIONSSSS

a splendid ending to a great tale

I'm relieved to see that everyone's okay and that Ruthie got her say. A nice relaxed end to a good three years. Congrats for reaching the end and keeping your art consistently fantastic throughout! I'm sure I can speak for us when I say thank you for sharing your great story with us and I look forward to anything you next create :)

August 9th, 2014, 4:36 pm

Ii'm so proud of you and i'm so emotional right now after it all finally finishing... i feel like when this comic started i was a different person, and i began my uni journey and changed along with blake. I feel like i've discovered a lot about myself along with this comic reflecting it all... you are so talented and special and you are the sweetest, most intelligent, creative person i've ever met. You are special and your comics reflect how deep and emotional of a person you are and it is great and you are great and i am very glad to have you and your comics in my life. your comics affected me in my life before i even knew you, and meeting you has just made me even more of a better person.. end of an era... to the next comic! xoxox

Incredible. I'm not even sad that it's over, because it wrapped up really nicely.
Thanks for offering such a fulfilling story. It's been a pleasure reading it!!

This comic is beautiful in every aspect and I'm glad I found and kept track of it. I love all of ur characters and the way u made the interact felt so real, and flawed in the most human way possible. Every page update was a gift and always kept me on edge, but I'm glad it's finished. There's still that feeling of "Oh, wow the comic's really done..." As I stare into space, but it's given me so much that I will always come back to read it dozens of times over. Thank you so much for this amazing comic and I look forward to anything u make in the future :).

August 25th, 2014, 8:09 am
