A Facebook message to my friend Rasmus in Denmark after he purchased a bunch of my original art:
“Hey. Just wanted to let you know that I sent out your package the other day. Since the art was so big, I didn’t want to roll it in a tube, so I put it in something you may appreciate. When I started drawing W&S in New Orleans, I needed a way to transport the art in my bag without damaging it, so I built a makeshift portfolio out of cardboard and tape. I put a bunch of stickers on it to make it cool and interesting to look at. That makeshift portfolio carried pretty much all of my comic art while I was in NOLA. It’s been sitting on my bookshelf since I moved to Seattle in hopes that maybe some day I would become famous enough to warrant selling it to a collector. I figured you should have it because you’re my #1 fan and haven’t given up on me even though I have given up on myself so many times. Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday, etc. Thanks for believing in me.”
Ha! Well, I had a job for two weeks. Now I’m still unemployed and desperately searching for ways to make ends meet. I may have some new comics coming… or not. Depends on how homeless I become. Oh, go check out my Store! There are pieces of original art up for sale!
Yes, real life is starting to get in the way here over at Über Comics.
I am working on an indie video game right now and need to concentrate on cranking out some art assets for that as we get closer and closer to release.
Plus I REALLY need to find a job to pay my freakin’ bills!
So I’m sorry, but new comics will be back in three or four weeks. Have a Happy October!
