and what a while it's been...
hello everyone, rhee here.

-hold for applause- (or not.)

i hope everyone is doing well, and i hope people still remember this comic.

for those who are wondering, i am doing mostly okay. school didn't go over so well, so i'm moving back home next week. my depression still continues to be an anchor i can not pull up, but my therapy sessions have been making progress. =)

it's been an interesting night for me, filled with all sorts of emotions spanning from utter despair to laughing at a bear wearing a suit and a monocle. and between all those emotions... i was reminded of a little thing i had started: box.

i went through the whole archive, reading every single comments (yes, even the bad ones,) and i had a chance to really appreciate what this comic has (or had) become.

because of you (the readers and everyone else who's even taken a look at this comic,) this little project of mine has become something so much more than what i had expected. and for that, i thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

now, i realize this is the first "update" since NOVEMBER.. and i'm going to be straight with every single one of you.

i'm out of ideas. i just don't know where else to take this comic. don't get me wrong... i've tried... trust me.

the thing with box. is that, it's so one-dimensional. it's one character, doing monologues... all. the. time. at the time when i started the comic, i didn't realize what a huge challenge it would be to keep something so monotonous interesting for the long run. and what a challenge it turned out to be.

box. has been on "unofficial" hiatus for the past 5-6 months. (my apologies, how rude of me to just leave.) and i'm not saying that it is now off-hiatus...


who is to say that box. is dead? who knows? i'm not gonna say "this is done," until i honestly feel that this can't go on any longer, and i really don't think box. is finished. sure i might come back 3-4 months from now, put another pathetic little filler up saying that box. is over and make up some lame-ass excuses to save face, but you know what? if it happens, it happens.

i'm going to try to revitalize box. i really am. i promise. i still draw box. (the character) every time i pull out my sketch pad, or every time i doodle on my tablet. i have not forgotten about this... i have not forgotten about everyone who has supported me up to this point. i'm going to make it up to you guys... i promise. <3

so here's the dealio. if anyone would like to contact me at anytime, look below for some infos.

email: i.smud.u (at)
MSN: rheeboot (at)
you can send me a PM on smackjeeves. i probably won't be checking my PM boxes often though.

(EDIT: or you could just look at my SJ profile. /stupid.)

(EDITEDIT: i now have a blog.

honestly, i would love to hear from everyone again, because i miss you all very very much. i check my email every minute of everyday, i leave my msn on every minute of everyday, and i update my twitter pretty much every 20 minutes of everyday, so those three choices are probably your best bet. (... that is, if you want to talk to me... >>... i'm so lonely. T________T )

anyway... this comment is huge, but i felt obligated to let you all know what was going on.

once again, as always, thank you everyone, for all the support that you guys have given me through box. thank you thank you thank you.

bye for now~<3

wow, it's been waaaaaay to long since I've seen this sneak its way into my updated favorites! :D

anyway, take as long as you want to revitalize Box, I too am also known for long unnanounced hiatus', take as long as you want and I'll be eagerly awaiting your return, as I'm sure many others will be as well :)

SeanRhee, May 4th, 2009, 4:25 pm

83 I'm glad you're not saying box. is dead. I think it's horrible when people just kill something

>> Best to leave them alive and starving so that you may, every so often, poke at it for fun.

I /love/ box. I'm perfectly content to let you update about anything, anywhere, anyway you damn well feel like it.

D8 Anyway, I'm sorry school didn't work out, but I happy therapy is going well (any kind of progress is a kind of success! >=O!!).
Imma stalk you on twitter >>
<< Maybe talk to you on MSN.
If you feel so inclined to respond

;-; Not that I ever commented much
(I always loved it, though. >> have the whole archive on my Mac to read when I get bored)

8D Anywayz! We'll be waiting ;O

SeanRhee, May 4th, 2009, 7:49 pm

Aw. Well i just found box. today and read through the entire thing.

Fabulous :) I <3 you

But there are other comics on sj that are just like yours. I mean not the storyline or anything, but the one-by-one frames. WEll i actually only know one...

I guess the style is way more simple though...
