Heyyy, new comic for you, sorry for the wait. Not safe for work i guess, unless you work somewhere, uh, Hip. Took a while longer than i thought, but then they all pretty much take longer than i think they will, so maybe i’ll just go ahead and give that excuse a rest in the future. The comix don’t typically exist on a single sheet of paper, but this one does, which is nice, so here’s a picture of it trying to look cool next to a record.
Additional mentionings/miscellanea/whatever for y’alls:
-One of the Heroes out there has sent in a drawing of the sphynx! Wicked, man. I love it, thanks x10 to Rachel.
-There’s this “Influence Map” thing going around where an artist fills out this template with all the artists who’ve influenced them, ending up with something like this. Kind of neat. Not being one to miss out on things, i spent an afternoon meticulously assembling one of my own, which you may pore over here…
-I don’t know why i’m mentioning this, but in a Purely cash-motivated move i recently achieved my goal of having some comix rejected by the new yorker, so here’s what it looks like when i attempt to sell the fuck out (A chilling vision of another dimension. A grim little grayscale dimension with no text in it). Purely, 150%, a grab for cash (an unsuccessful one, that is), because one needs to pursue one’s avenues i guess and i heard they pay well. I debated whether to write about this because i probably just sound like a bitter fuck who didn’t get a payday, but, uh, oh well. Full disclosure i guess.
LINK OF THE MOMENT!
-In case anyone hasn’t heard about it, let me be the 5000th person to enthusiastically link to the It Gets Better project, which is an endeavor started by everyone’s favorite wise dude Dan Savage to, via the internet, talk to kids in high school who might be having a deeply shitty time because they’re getting harassed for being gay (or otherwise Different). Maybe you’re one of these kids, in which case you should definitely check it out. High school just full-on Sucks for a lot of people, but guess what? It gets better, so don’t give in. I’m not in any minority groups (unless being Strange And Insane counts), and I’m not gonna pretend i had a deeply nightmarish time in school or anything, but tons of people do have an awful go of it, and there are way too many news items about harassed kids killing themselves recently, and this project is an attempt to change that, and is thus The Best Project Ever, so have a look.
that’s it for me! Check you later,
