Yes indeed, we won the Cold War because we slept less! As a former history major in college, I know what I'm talking about.

WEBCOMIC BEACON

I was interviewed for the Webcomic Beacon Podcast! So instead of watching me prattle on ten minutes or so at a time on my vlog, you can listen to me prattle on like an idiot for a good forty minutes! Thanks to Fes for the interview.

SUPER ART FIGHT ONLINE INVITATIONAL

SAF is a Maryland-based event and though we sometimes get to travel as far as sunny Los Angeles, if you don't live in the DMV (the District, Maryland, and Virginia. Yeah, it's a dumb ass abbreviation) chances are you won't be able to see us live.

We have heard your cries! We present to you the first ever SUPER ART FIGHT ONLINE INVITATIONAL! Eight of our super stars will compete in a series of battles broadcast online. The ultimate winner will face the current SAF Champion when the tournament is complete.

How do we determine a winner? You, the viewers, get to vote!

First up, newcomers El Russo Rojo and The Dudeler square off. Who won the match? Vote for your choice! You have until September 19 to choose the winner of this first round. And tune in next Tuesday for our second match!

2 Alternatives to the Big Show

Aug.06.14 11:45 am

It's con season which can be kind of a hassle for creators. So here are two alternatives to trying to get into that big show.


BACKEND IS GO!

Jul.23.14 09:21 pm

Big shout out to Erin from Hiveworks for hooking up the new backend! Things work a little differently now. The bloggy blog will still be on the page even when you click over to make a comment on the comic. And there might be some other odds and ends that a slightly different. But overall, things should work like they have been.


YP BACKEND MIGRATION

Jul.23.14 02:18 am

The Hiveworks team is hard at work migrating the YP comic CMS into something less crazy then the Comicpress madness. As a result, you’ll notice a few 404′s if you click around here as well as comments missing on some posts. Those have been sucked into the new system and will be back up once we’re able to finalize the migration. Hopefully, everything will get sorted out soon.

I’ve been meaning to update the website for a while now, but the WordPress/Comicpress combo has too many pieces that I’d need to change in order to refresh everything. There are so many bits that are connected with so many other bits that it’d be like digging for gold to make the changes I want.

The new system is more streamlined which makes things easier for me and actually loads a whole lot faster which makes things easier for you! So please excuse the mess while things are a chugging.

I've been working on this wallpaper image for my Patrons. I modeled the kitsune in Zbrush and used Mental Ray in Maya for rendering with lots of touch up in Photoshop. This was for May soI'm a little behind.

Each month, Patrons will be getting full sized wallpapers at various sizes. The resolution is high enough to print so if you want a copy for your actual wall, you can do that. So, if you're interested in that kind of thing from me, check out my Patreon page.Once you join, you get access to all the stuff inPatron-only feed so if you sign up later in the year, you can still get all the previous month's wallpapers.
