Going to IKEA is a little like going to grown-up Disneyland, but I have a set amount of time I can spend there before getting fried out. I have the same problem at malls, and encountered the same thing at Honest Ed's, a huge discount store in Toronto (you might recognize it from Scott Pilgrim - and while we're talking about SP, there's no exaggeration about that crazy ass moose clock - it's a horror). I have trouble filtering - basically I get mallsick. Anyway!
Hey guys and gals! John is full of johnisms, and we endeavour to share as many of them as we can with you.
Let me just say, thank you all for sharing your pet stories! It's going to take me a day or two to catch up on all of them, but we think it's really cool that you guys all took so much time on your stories. Stories, we like 'em.
Trying to get approved to meet this cat turned into a quest of greater proportion than we had ever dreamed of! From what I understand, most people tend to just walk into a shelter and walk out with a cat, which feels pretty ideal. What're your pet-getting stories? Nice and easy? Horror-story? We're still deciding whether or not to adopt this bitey little gal.
AHHH everything is happening! We're running out to grab curry with Jisuk, an artist and animator in NYC. But we were good, check out all the things we got you!
PaleontoLOLgy tees are back in stock! John helped us take some photos of the glow, it looks awesome! Click here or on the picture below to hit the store:
We decided to do some gag comics, which made me a little nervous because they seem a little self-indulgent - but hey, if they get a laugh out of you then that's a-okay. Actually, Yuko and I each thought that the gag about the other person was funnier, which makes us evenly self-conscious.
I thought of an alternate ending, which Yuko was a little too quick about putting together ...
Uh, I'll just leave that there.
We had a lot of people over for a New Years and a few days after. Conrad was a cooking champ - he made breakfast and dinner for the whole crew of ~15 or so that we were hosting. One of the nights was spaghetti night, and, well ... these things happen, I suppose.
Two inked pieces are up! :D [EDIT: UH WHOA THEY'RE SOLD OUT] Yuko even added a color wash, you can check them out below:
Speed lines, awww yeah.
Hope everyone had a great holiday and New Year! I took a trip home to DC to visit some friends, my brother visited, and then a bunch of friends came up for New Years ... we threw a party and I'm sure I'll get some comics out of that. A lot of folks from Rochester visited, included Conrad's lady Rachelle, who is pretty ace and previously appeared here, eating bacon in a manner that can only be called adorable.
Hey guys! Today is kind of a busy day, so I'm making this pretty quick: here are the ink test examples you requested! Each figure is one ink test, so here are a bunch:
Some of them seem a little messy because of residual pencils - the ink tests in the store would all be clean like the majority above. There's Lockheed in the bottom right! Violin fox is probably my favorite.
