Flu and possible deadline collision

I got my 'flu jab in October, but they've never actually stopped me from getting the 'flu. They only stop me from dropping dead from the 'flu. That's a crucial difference but doesn't make me feel any better right now. I'm sick as a dog.
Despite the sickness, I got some work done. I managed to finish coloring today's Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan page, and will put the final touches on Friday's page today. Both pages were drawn late last week, fortunately, meaning that the hardest work was already done. I had a very clear picture of how they were going to be coloured, so I didn't need to think too hard about that either.
I don't think I'll be able to start a new page in the state I'm in right now, though, and that's a bit of a problem. I've already been hassled by Hello You! over the script for the 7th Floor comic, but I can only do those with a really clear head. I'm not worried, yet, but I've noticed that the window between the deadline for the script and that for the finished art is slightly smaller than usual (presumably to fit in the Christmas holidays of the editorial staff and the colorist), and I'll really need to draw it next week. In other words, I'll have no ROCR pages prepared in advance before next week, and will spend that period drawing something else if I'm at all capable of doing so.
Time to bring out the guest art! Are any of you reading this game? I'll have some fillers ready but I would rather have work by other people. It will be seen by the new readers flooding in from Clan of the Cats and The Webcomics List as well as the regular readers.

Branko Collin:

Is this diabolical laughter by the same Einar who is very, very ill?

Yes. Ironic, isn't it?

Branko Collin:

It's so ironic, it's almost palpable. Well, if you guys could taste anything at the moment, anyway.

I managed to have just enough time to write a guest strip for Reinder before the illness struck me down. Ironic, no?
