In honor of his birthday, and his upcoming 200th strip, I decided to give my good friend Fox over at Sketched Comedy a week off. There’s a guest strip up today, and another should be running on Monday. Fox is a stand up guy, so please, let him sit down, just this once.
Guest Strip: Mental Hell
As for THIS strip, I should have a new strip next week for you! Thank you to everyone who’s been checking in with kind words and support over the last few months. I really appreciate it.
“This product hurts too much and should be removed from the NERF line immediately. It was a bad idea to make a gun that fires downed trees and telephone poles at 100mph a sec.”
The good news is, my family and I are all fine after the Hurricane, although my Grandmother’s home will be uninhabitable for 6-8 months. She lives a block off the water, so that’s not unexpected. She was only renting, but it’s still going to be a pain.
The bad news (I guess the OTHER bad news) is that I’m still without power, so I don’t know when I’ll be able to get anything substantial up here. For now, please take a look at my buddy Fox’s rendition of what life must be like now, in a post Sandy world:
It really brightened my day.
Last but far form now least, I hope all my of readers are doing ok, and my heart goes out to anyone coping with loss. Also, uh…lookout, I guess there’s a nor’easter coming?
Hey folks, I didn’t forget about you. Strips will continue on the 30th! Just dealing with some flim-flam here at Inter-Glom headquarters.
We should also be wrapping this storyline up then, too, while getting a proper introduction to Pyx, the blue alien cop lady person. Thanks for your patience!
This past weekend I was happy to see that Scott Cambell (http://www.pyramidcar.com/) was going to be in my area for the Princeton Children’s Book Festival. When I got to his spot at the show,there were plenty of happy faced kids and parents already engrossed in his books. I’ve been really interested in his work lately. He hits this perfect combination of fine art and crazy character designs that look loose at first, but then reveal some great emotion and color work. I loved his designs on Psychonauts, and it was great to see him working on concept art again for the doublefine adventure.
I would have loved to stay longer, but I didn’t want to get in the way of those interested kids. In fact, a lot of nerdier artists and children’s books at the show were doing really well, it seemed. “Look, Dad! Zombies!” is probably not something I expected a kid to be screaming excitedly in my lifetime.
Even though I live equidistant from two of the biggest cities in the country, getting to the conventions held at them can be a real pain. Plus the price of admission + parking, all just to stare at more superhero stuff than I really care about isn’t really something I can justify. That said, I think I’ll head down to Bethesda, MD on Sunday for SPX.
The high concentration of creators and designers seems like a better way to spend my time!
