If you've never been to Utah, you may or may not know about Pioneer Day. It's July 24th, and it's kind of a heckuva big deal! Officially, this state holiday celebrates the day that the Mormon pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley and began to create their new home. Today however, it's extended to remembering all the "pioneers" in our lives, both literal and figurative. If you go back in your family history, it won't be hard to find pioneers in some sense among your ancestors. Perhaps someone who immigrated to your current residence, or who was a leader in their field or community.
This month's postcard features Edward Coatl, and you only get one guess who's ancestor he is! ;-D He's actually loosely based off one of my own ancestors who helped settle the beautiful city I currently live in. Seriously guys. The Mormon Church puts a lot of emphasis on family history, but regardless of your religious inclinations, doing a bit of research into your family tree is super interesting! I challenge you to take just a bit of time to discover something new about those who came before you.
To snag your own copy of this piece of feathered history, be sure to pledge on Patreon
before the end of the month. Happy Pioneer Day all!

Hey all! Sorry for my relative silence recently. These past couple months have been a bit brutal on me. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel... My work schedule should be normalizing soon which should make things a bit easier on me.
That said, I have found it necessary to make a slight change to the comic update schedule. At our current funding level, the comic will still update every Tuesday (with the occasional bonus stuff on Fridays). The only change is that after the end of a chapter, the Q&A page that follows will be considered a normal comic update, and be posted the following Tuesday. This does mean one fewer update than we would normally get whenever a chapter ends, which I don't love. But for the time being, I think it is a necessary, and not too disruptive change.
And the good news is, once we reach our next Patreon funding goal (which we're not too far from at the moment) those in-between Q&A pages will be back to bonus page status, meaning the next chapter can start the very next week (like before).
Thank you all for your understanding and your continued support! I hope your summer has been going well and that you continue to have a fun and safe time with it.
Happy upcoming 4th!

Ha, thought you'd seen the last of that book cover, eh? :D
We're now in the month of June... so this month's postcard features the cover image of June's favorite book! (Get it????) Snag your own piece of DinoKin
merch by pledging on Patreon
anytime this month!
(And if you're curious, yes this one is vertical, or portrait oriented rather than landscape like all the others have been. Works better that way as a book cover.)

Update: This giveaway has now ended! Thank you so much to everyone who participated, and congratulations to the winners! :D Each winner will be contacted in the order shown below. The first winner will get first dibs on the prize they want, followed the the second winner, and so on. Hope you had fun!
It's been three years since the first page of the Aww, Feathers! story was posted! Remember? This one! Ah, Ine. Just look at how far you've come! ...Which I guess isn't super far since only a few months have passed in comic time... So I guess one year in real time equates to roughly a month of comic time??! Best not to think about that too much...
Thank you all for reading and participating with me! It's been such a blast! There's plenty more where that came from and many more stories I want to tell, so be sure to keep following along!
Also, you can help celebrate the comic's 3rd Featherversary by entering the giveaway I'm hosting! Check below for the details!
Thank you, and enjoy!
Aww, Feathers! 3rd Featherversary Giveaway!

Last year we had a Father's Day postcard, so this year it's the moms' turn!
You may recall that Dil was adopted by the Attwell's, an otter couple. (If you don't recall, you can read the chapter that talks about it here
. And sorry for spoiling the ending...) Dil is very close to them, and enjoys spending time with them whenever possible. Naturally, one favorite activity is swimming! This postcard captures a tender moment between Dil and his mother. He learned to swim long before this of course. (It was one of the first things the Attwell's taught him!) This is just one of many happy water romps.
...Happy otter water romps! :D
Anyhoozie, to get your own copy, make sure to pledge on Patreon
either before or during the month of May.

Greetings friends! I have excellent news! This month we reached a new funding milestone! As a result, there will be a bonus story update tomorrow! Be sure to check back!
For every month that we meet or beat our new funding level and there's a new chapter during that month, there will be an extra story update for everyone! (Limit one extra update per chapter.) This makes me happy, because it means more content for my awesome readers and it will help move the story along!
Note: this bonus update is happening right at the end of the current chapter. As a result, the Q&A page will be released on Tuesday, and the next normal page (the beginning of a new chapter!) will be up on Friday. After that, we'll be back to our normal update schedule. As always, if you like getting extra updates and would like to help keep it that way while unlocking some extra goodies along the way, check out Aww, Feathers! on Patreon! For as little as $1 per month, you can help make it happen!
Finally, unrelated, but a few have expressed confusion and even sadness at my recent adoption of Lark as my new avatar. I think I could have done a better job at explaining him, so allow me to quickly clarify.
Yes, I've used Ine as a character to represent myself online in the past, especially among family and friends. Honestly, I don't really anticipate that changing. Lark's primary role will be to represent me as the author of the comic. This is to help reduce confusion between myself, and Ine the comic character. Again, if you know me as Ine, don't worry, I'll still answer to it. Ine's not going away.
