Guys, guys.

So, Topatoco has a photostream of people wearing their shirts. I was paging through it and I'm feeling a little underrepresented. I don't expect to compete with shirt design juggernauts like Ryan North and Chris Hastings, but we gotta get at least one in there.

Won't you send a picture to pics@topatoco.com with your sexy, sexy self in one of our shirts?

I was hoping to find out what exactly it was that Christopher Handley pled guilty to having, so I could be all "Oh man, you think that's bad? Take a look at this little thing I found on 4chan." Living on the Internet, my view of contemporary community standards is probably way off.

More practically, it would have been nice to see exactly what I was defending. Deep down, I knew that was a cop out, whether it was the yaoi stuff that was getting honored at Anime Central or something that genuinely shocks me, as improbable as that concept is. I don't feel that I or anyone around me is any better off now that a guy is in jail for the next five years on account of possible skeeviness.

Neil Gaiman has already given his two cents figuratively and raised many more cents literally. I'm less than a legal scholar, so I'm not sure what anyone can do now that the plea is already in.

Seems Matt's and I's tag team of writing and art appeared as an honorable mention this week over at Warcraft. Cool beans.

For those visiting from the little address I put on the comic, welcome. Here's some of the other related Warcraft posts we've done:

Comic - On Old Wounds
Comic - On DPS
Comic - On NSWF
Comic - On profession
Gnome Death Knight

Though our mention isn't as cool as Xero's winning last month. Show off...

You know, we never got our prize from winning last December. I feel slightly hurt, Blizzard. You never call any more...

Comic up...
May 29, 2009, 02:25 EST
 
...I'm happy to say it looks like you don't get another doodle today. The comic wasn't complicated or anything, I've just been a little exhausted lately.

But anyway, yeah, this poor guy that was at our table suddenly started spouting blood from his nose at A-Cen. I, as shown above in the comic, have my theories as to why that was. Also, last weekend we were down in San Jose for Fanime. Got another convention coming up at the end of July. Connecticon!

May 28, 2009, 04:11 EST
 
...But since it's not up quite yet, as promised, here's another sketch:



Oh Little Big Planet, your characters are adorable. You got me hooked on them, now please, release more levels.

Just a heads up...
May 27, 2009, 00:45 EST
 
...Comic is slow going at the moment.
So until I get it up, I'm gonna post some sketches. The first is this one:



It's the main character, Xoda Rap, from the quite fun, indy game Noitu Love 2. If I don't have the comic done tomorrow, I'll post another doodle. Till then, see you around!

We'll be in Artist's Alley on the far right side.

The convention is at the San Jose convention center. Directions and such are on the website if you're thinking of stopping by.

Interviewed on the Interwebs
May 4, 2009, 01:27 EST
 
I'll keep it short; S-Words decided to do an interview of Matt and I. Hopefully you'll find it amusing.

Also, again, we'll be going to Acen this weekend for our guestly duties. We'll have two new shirts to boot. Feel free to stay a while and listen.

Historically inaccurate comics
May 4, 2009, 00:37 EST
 
I don't think Fludd was looking to start a company for his perpetual motion machine. In any case, the inventors who followed him would never admit a little thing like "setbacks."

I picked up Voodoo Science at a used bookstore the other day. There's plenty of inventors in it claiming to have discovered miraculous new energy sources, people like Joe Newman, Randy Mills and James Patterson, but my favorite guy from the book has to be Dennis Lee of Better World Technologies for his innovative use of tent revival techniques in pitching a perpetual motion device of the second type.

"The audience, already exhausted by the long wait in the sun, had to struggle to keep up. if there was a momentary break in the action as they raced from one miracle to another, Dennis Lee would plug the gap with antigovernment, anti-industry, antiscientist, pro-God harangues. No form of authority was spared. He even made references to his jail time-naturally, his incarceration had been part of a plot by greedy polluters to supress the technologies that might save the world. 'I never took a course-I'm really not a very bright man-but I'm God's man.' People stood and cheered.

"Now, don't expect to get your generator installed right away. Dennis Lee explained that if they bring out this technology too quickly it will wreck the economy. They love America too much to do that-unless the polluters try to block them. 'The scientists do whatever the government tells them to do. We want what's best for America, but if it comes to war, the Fisher engine will destroy them. A war with us could be a very bad thing for the United States.'"

I'm not sure what Lee is up to these days, but this was in 1997, so either he's still being kept down by the running dogs of capitalism or the economy is just too fragile to roll out the Fisher Engine.

From the book I also found out about the NIH's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Looks like they might get the axe. Tom Harkin must be despondent.

No comic this week...
April 28, 2009, 23:26 EST
 
...I'm feeling under the weather and would like to do some resting. In the mean time enjoy the sketches above and the links below.

Final Fantasy X I I I - A first look at the english dubbing for the latest FF. It's so awesome you'll be required to high five some one as soon as it's over.

Robot Penguins - ROBOT damn PENGUINS. The fuck else do you want?!

Also a reminder, Matt, Jes, and I will be attending ACen in two weeks. We've prepped some new shirts designs I hope you like and I'll also attempt one of my art panels. But mostly please, feel free to come by and chat while I happily doodle for your amusement.

I'm in a Podcast
April 23, 2009, 04:22 EST
 
I'm a guest host on this week's S-Words. The topic was Suzumiya Haruhi, and I play the part of 'the uncultured guy with little knowledge on the subject'. It's an important roll!

There was some mic issues, so the quality is a little worse than usual with this one.

An early version of this strip read "I just want to be loved." However, anglerfish love involves the male losing his digestive system, fusing to a female and withering into a pair of gonads.

So I figured I'd save that one for Valentine's Day.
