Jenny Everywhere’s 11th birthday was Monday, August 13, 2012! You can catch updates as they happened at the Jenny Everywhere Day blog, run by Benj Christensen, starting here for 2012 entries. A total of 14 submissions this year, which is par with 2010′s entries, but 5 entries shy of beating 2012′s (her 10th birthday) submissions.
Though more good news was that The Shifter Archive also had a decent number of updates from an ever increasing back-log. HOWEVER, it is believed the gap become much smaller this year. Once we update the site with the 38 Jenny arts from the Warren Ellis’ White Chapel REMAKE/REMODEL forum project, the gap will be SIGNIFICANTLY smaller. The trouble is mostly in creating new creator profiles for everyone, which includes links to find them. Then archiving the images, making a thumbnails that link out to where they are posted.
Adding artwork is actually easier than adding comics… especially if the comics have more than one creator. While I *did* make the new Shifter Archive much easier to work with, by moving it to a WordPress blog from all HTML, there is still an amount of tediousness. Everything on the site is built to handle hosting Jenny images and comics, should the original ever disappear.
