Possibly one of the worst problems to have when you're inking! Or really, doing anything, ever. Yuko usually puts brush to paper between hiccups, until it becomes frustrating enough to make her give up. Rumor has it that Jackson Pollock's art career began with a case of the hiccups.
Yuko says thank you to everyone for the bridesmaid dress suggestions! She really appreciates it. We're taking a look around tomorrow, and I'm mentally preparing for the stress!
The exit was for the Innuendo Parkway, on which we stayed till the end of our trip.
An update for those of you who ordered NEWW sketchbooks - Yuko is working her way through them, and they'll go out as she gets them done. She is putting a lot of work into your sketches!
I have to ask a selfish question of you guys - Yuko is looking to get a bridesmaid dress (actually for the wedding described herein). If any of you can suggest a place(s) in NYC, that would be amazing. We only know of one or two. Thanks!
Evan John and George saw this guy while we were waiting in Port Authority. He's somewhere between Blade and Kingdom Hearts, I think, except when he walks into the pastry shop I think "Man vs. Food", only in a gladiator's arena.
This happened on the way down to DC this past weekend - we were attending the rally and then going to a Halloween party afterwards. The tollbooth was coming up, and, well ... when George is around, these things happen. You'll remember him from some older comics.
George actually worked the rally for the Colbert Report, so here's something neat for those of you who were there or saw the coverage,
So we try to keep these Garies comics to a minimum because they are maybe a little too inside jokey, not to mention vague, weird, and creepy - but it's Halloween and that suits the holiday just fine. Today is Garies Proverbs - there will possibly be one more Garies comic on Tuesday, but that may change.
We may or may not be at a certain event in DC this coming Saturday.
It's a banana, you assholes.
But seriously, this cat didn't like the banana and so he ruined it. You're a piece of work, Rook.
Just a heads up - there are only about 15 BEACH sets left (in existence) and only about 5 Puppy totes left (also in existence). The BEACH set was a limited run, and we won't be reprinting the totes! Get 'em while you can. Books are still available in the store, of course.
Hey guys! Just wanted to share with you a few things:
First, I was interviewed by Helter Skelter's Arun Kale! You can check it out here. Helter Skelter's website is very pretty too - maybe too pretty for my mug. The interview was fun, but I may have talked too much! (That's what you do during a review, right?!) Anyway, take a look!
We're taking today to push through some of our deadlines - this isn't a full comic per se, but it's an illustration we kept around for a day like today. Yuko will occasionally take time off of our immediate projects to work on something that isn't on a deadline - it's a part of how she relaxes. Incidentally this was also how she broke in the Cintiq back when we got it.
Did you know morning glories are related to sweet potatoes? They are. Yuko gave this sweet potato a home in our living room, and it's doing quite well.
I don't think I actually knew what sweet potatoes even were until a few years ago - to this day my stomach turns at the horror of knowing what I missed out on.
Books are still up for sale! I added a handy sidebar link (finally).
