We regretfully announce that the Sean Murphy Apprenticeship will be cancelled for the time being.

The biggest reason is due to scheduling concerns. With the commitments to both Tokyo Ghost and a Chrononauts movie, I've decided I need to focus on the work at hand rather than adding more. Readers and comic shops deserve timely publishing schedules, and I never want to be responsible for any delays.

There's also the legal aspect. My wife and I spoke with our lawyer at length, and she recommended shutting the program down due to the increasing risks. What was initially meant to be a small operation to support up and coming artists has beautifully grown into something larger than we ever imagined. But with this, along with our pressing schedules, we feel that we are unable to keep up with the daunting legal responsibilities associated with this sort of growth.

Thank you all for your support and our apologies and gratitude to those who applied to the apprenticeship this year. There was some fantastic talent and based on the applicants, we look forward to seeing these incredible artists on future books and projects. Another thank you goes out to those who donated to our Kickstarter last year. Though it's been said before, it deserves a second shout out: You helped make the Murphy Apprenticeship a huge success. We're happy to call Clay, Corin, Jorge, Stevo and Tana our lifelong friends. And we hope to one day revive the idea when the timing is right.
