Today Nothing Happened

Phew! Four years and over five-hundred comics later, Today Nothing Happened is finished!
Thank you all so much for your kind words and fond farewells! It's honestly really touching to see so much love from you guys. ;u; I can't possibly say how much it means to me to know that this little journal comic mattered so much to so many people.
I thought a cool send-off would be the least I could do. <3

Where can I find you, now that TNH is done?

I'm in a bunch of places!
I have another comic called Runewriters that will continue updating,
a DeviantArt account where I post finished artsy things -- and I also try to announce art-related stuff, like conventions or commissions or livestreams--
there's a Tumblr account where I post sketches and D&D ramblings and fanart and also finished art, so if you want to be in good with ALL my arting, this is a good place to follow.
If you just want to know what I'm up to, my Twitter account will give you the occasional scoop on my day-to-day life,
and my Facebook page will announce any art things I'm up to.

What about TNH? We are still waiting on the last two BOOKS, young lady!

Keep TNH in your RSS, follow my twitter or the Today Nothing Happened page on Facebook! I'll make sure all three of these places are notified when I announce news regarding books (#3 should be available in May!), prints (I really want to make a print of the coloured part of this page, no lies) and any other tricks I might have up my sleeve!

Are there any conventions I can catch you at this year?

Yes! Currently I'm lined up to be tabling at HEROES CON, OTAKON, SAN DIEGO COMIC CON, and quite possibly BALTIMORE COMIC CON! If you're planning to be in any of these places, keep an eye out on my Twitter/DA/Facebook; I'll keep you guys updated!

This comic has been so much fun, not just to draw, but to hear back from you guys, to get your stories and advice and sympathy and celebration right along with me! I never imagined I would run a journal comic, much less for years... but I'm really glad I did. Thank you all for making it beyond awesome!

You've been waiting to use that line as a finale for AGES haven't you? :P

But seriously, you will be sorely missed. It was TNH that got me onto reading other webcomics! But this comic always stayed at the top of my list. Thanks for everything! :3

You are simply brilliant. Thank you for the ongoing amazingness you have shared with us all. I will say that this comic will be missed. You, however, will not be missed, for we shall continue to see your art and personality in Runewriters and any other projects you choose to create. So there will be nothing to miss, only to enjoy! :)

God bless, and all the best to you in the future...

I feel like I'm watching Calvin and Hobbes slide down a snowy bank all over again! Happy sadness is such a weird emotion.

Oh. My. Gosh. I just can't believe it's over!
I know you don't know me, but I've been reading this comic for ages and I'm actually a sad that your journal comic is over! T_T
And, your end was really touching!!
(I'll probably be checking this page over and over again forgetting that it's over too!)
<3 Thank you Shazz!

Such a perfect ending! ;___; This was my favorite journal comic and while I;m truly sad that it's over, there could be no better conclusion.

I'll keep following Runewriters, but I'm saying this anyway: may you future endeavors bring you much joy. Also, a semi-regular sleep schedule.

Now for me to buy the books you DO have finished...

this was a great way to end the comic, lol!

Also, one last thing - you should (unless you already have and I have not noticed) make an archive of your vote incentives.... Cuz they're awesome, too.

Comment by Kier
A lovely wrap-up to things.

I think it's always sad when a good webcomic comes to an end, but the nature of this one makes it slightly worse. I mean, no onlyt am I going to miss the webcomic itself, but I'm also going to miss hearing about the crazy antics of people I've grown fond of... even if I can objectively say that I know jack shit about almost all of them.

So... yes... a wonderful things to finish things of, I look forward to enjoying more of your work... and yet deep down I'm gonna miss hearing about you and your bro geeking out other ponies and smeg.

I would suggest that it's neither minor, nor random, to discover another Smeghead!

I think I'll have some vindaloo to take my mind off the fact that TNH is but a mere digital hologram to me now. . .

Beautiful farewell. This was truly one of my favorite webcomics...when I think about it I think it's my favorite. I also got excited Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday mornings knowing it would be updated (or at least have a cute fat animal!).

Good luck in all your future artsy adventures.

No, thank YOU Shazz, for sharing a slice of your life with us. I know I'll have to go back and read through the archives sometimes. I'm also hoping to but the books later on.
I'll be watching your deviantART account, with bated breath for the next page of Runewriters~!

Thank you for sharing with us. It's been a wonderful romp to get to know you and your amazing friends and family and cats, if only second-hand.

This is my second favorite comic (behind Girl Genius; I'm sorry, even you can't compete with a good death ray) and I'll miss it way too much.

*hugs* I hope you're life continues to be full of interesting and amazing things!

Such an awesome way to end the comic! This is definitely one of my favorite web comics, and I've loved sharing these adventures with you for the past few years. I'm sad to see it end, but that's how things go, and now you can focus on other things. I'm looking forward to buying the rest of the TNH books and to reading more Runewriters. Thank you so much for keeping TNH in our lives for as long as you have! I hope you can get more sleep now, lol.

Thank you Shazz.

And that's it! I guess I already had my goodbye and observations post, but I really will miss this comic. It was probably the one I most looked forward to reading out of all those I have bookmarked...perhaps I'll have to make it to one of those comic cons this year or next. Of course, as I said before, it'll be weird seeing in person someone you know so well as a cartoon who yet doesn't know you at all, but I think it's still worth doing...

So I guess thanks are in order, first of all. Thanks for making my days a little brighter, maybe for showing me that things can get better than whatever I have now. And, for some reason, I feel like congratulating you: you've finished something, and something wonderful. You've touched so many people, and that's an incredible thing. So wherever you go, stand a little straighter, walk a little taller, because you've made a difference.

What a great way to end the comic. It feels mysterious looking at the page of all your memories and escapades because it's nostalgic to us too, haha.

This is pretty much the only comic I've ever checked right at its update time. Of course I'm going to miss this comic and all of the people in it (even though I don't REALLY know them; what a weird feeling), but I'm so glad you decided to share this 4-year long period of your life with us!Thank you for all your hard work and good luck with everything :)

Farewell, Shazzbaa! (the website won't be going down, will it? I'd like to recommend this to friends) I WILL be reading Runewrites. Avidly. I'll miss Today Nothing Happened! It was the first webcomic I ever read! I don't even remember how I started reading! It was like I just...found it. Thank you!

This feels weird. I know you do other things, and I'm going to make an effort to read all of it, but not having TNH is going to be weird. In the end, I'm glad that you can relax a bit more during crunch-times and that we all got to be a part of the quirky parts of your life. I've been part of comic fandoms before during the ending, but it must be the nature of the comic that gives it something special.

No more TNH!!!

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻


┬──┬ノ(° -°ノ)

Ok now that I'm done using my new Chrome extension I just wanna say that I read well over 30 webcomics. They all have one things in common: They're all different and well made. I read TNH because it's unique and the creator improved there craft over the course of the comic. You're a great artist Shazzba keep up the good work. In the meantime I'll check out Runewriters.

P.S. Consider coming to Chicago some time we love webcomics out here.

I hope you keep us updated from time to time on your life. Good luck with your art chickie, I guess I'll have to buy the books now :)

Oh wow! Yours is one of the best comic strip(?) journals, on the web!

I've always loved it! I feel a little teary-eyed to see it finish, but that's the mark of a good entertainer: always keep the show/story at a very good level/quality, and you're fortunate if you end a project, and the audience is still yelling- MORE! MORE! MORE!

It's been a fun time!

You'll always be one of the coolest cartoonists, in my book!

Best Wishes in your projects and future stuff, : )

HEY GUYS I'M SO COOL because I comment on comics months after they're done!

Everyone else has pretty much said what I want to say. I'm going to try to comment and vote on Runewriters, because I was a lurker for TNH. This is one of the few comics that I've read start-to-finish, and I think it's because your writing style draws me in. Thank you for creating awesome comics!

...though the lack of vote incentives should have clued me in sooner.

Well, off to Runewriters, I guess! I'll miss this little corner of the internet...
