Thinking about making a limited numbered print run of the above on 8.5â€³ x 11â€³ cardstock. Would there be any interest?

A few weeks ago, Brock Heasley approached me to draw a 3 page SuperFogeys: Origins story. The story was originally intended for David Reddick to illustrate, but Dave had to bow out due to a very busy schedule.
I was nervous and excited about the opportunity. Nervous because it had been a very long time since I attempted a page-based comic layout. Excited because, deep down, Iâ€™d been jonesing to draw some action sequence based comics.
Brock was a total pleasure to work with. He sent me a very tight script, but left it up to me to pick camera angles. I broke the script down into thumbnails and sent him the roughs to get feedback. The whole process was exciting and fun â€“ especially because I could just draw and not have to worry about writing for a change.

I said I was going to go on a sabbatical, but I didnâ€™t want to leave the current storyline hanging. So, Iâ€™ll continue to sporadically update with new strips until Bobâ€™s First Day is over.
P.S. Check out my guest-art over at Brock Heasleyâ€™s SuperFogeys today! Itâ€™s the first time
Iâ€™ve collaborated with another cartoonist â€“ and Iâ€™ve gotta say, it was immensely fun! Iâ€™m hoping I can collaborate with Brock for another SF: Origins story at some point in the future.
And while youâ€™re at it, go buy a copy of SuperFogeys Volume 1. I did, and itâ€™s a treat!

This month, voting takes place for the 2009 Webcomic Readers Choice Awards. Far be it from me to ask you to cast a vote for my comics (though I’d be very humbly appreciative), rather – I would like you to vote for the webcomics you enjoy the most.
Take a look at the nominees – there’s lots of terrific reading to be had by looking through the list.

The Color Swatch palette in Photoshop is something many digital illustrators use on a daily basis. Many times people use only the default color swatches, without realizing that they have choices â€“ from the range of colors themselves, to the way they are displayed.
The typical color swatch setup is displayed as small thumbnail squares. By default there are only a few rows of colors that are visible. If you click on the small black triangle on the upper righthand side of the color swatch panel, youâ€™ll see that you have several types of swatch combinations to choose from.

Iâ€™ve taken a little break from making comics (at least for the next two months). But with over 8 additional years of archives that many folks havenâ€™t even seen before, I have quite a lot of â€œnewâ€ content to put up here until I jump back to comic-making.
My first weekend off in 11 years was immensely productive. I actually completed one project Iâ€™ve had on the back burner for over a year. I have a few other projects in various stages of completion that I need to finish, and Iâ€™m excited at the opportunity to get a chance to do so.

Kevin Copeland, aka The Wayward Cartoonist, sent in his photo with his copy of â€œRebootus Maximusâ€ a few days back. Kevin is the webcartoonist behind FusterCluck, described as â€œthe labors of a hired chicken trying to make sense from chaosâ€.
Thanks for your support, Kevin!

This may come as a shock to regular readers, but Iâ€™m going to come right out and say it.
I need a break.
Iâ€™ve been plugging away at making my own comics for over 11 years now, and the time feels right for me to go on a mini-vacation for a little while.
Truth be told, I have a few other irons in the fire that have been sitting on my personal back burner for quite some time that I would now like to turn my attention towards.
Do I hate comics? NO! Am I getting bored of making comics? No. Do I have more stories to tell? Abs-a-freakinâ€™-lutely.
But I need a little time off, and after 11 years I think Iâ€™m entitled to it.

I love getting photos of readers with their copy of â€œRebootus Maximusâ€. Below is reader Rob Stenzinger, musician and webcartoonist of ArtGeekZoo.
Thank you for the awesome artist edition of Rebootus Maximus, I really dig the picture of Bob with his Footle Fone.

Before Bob got his gig at Footle, he worked at Oxley Semi.
Who is this new mystery woman, and what role does she play at Footle? â€˜Toon in next weekâ€¦
