This weekend was Dragon’s Lair Webcomic Rampage in Austin, TX. Thanks to all the Fancy Bastards that came out to say hi. If you didn’t make it out this year, next year’s event is already shaping up to an AMAZING weekend of comics, cartoonists and fun time.s They are moving to a new location that’s twice the size and we’re going to have even more panels, events and online cartoonists.
Almost as soon as the Rampaging began, Zach Weiner started a thing whereby all of the attending cartoonists kept drawing me and replacing random words in sentences with my full name all weekend. It started as a jok and quickly escalated into a surreal, meta tribute/ribbing type situation that somehow married Being John Malkovich with Pokemon. I felt like the prettiest idiot at ball. I was getting ALL of the attention and in no way sure if I wanted, appreciated, or understood it.
Here’s a bunch of the pictures of me that Zach, David, Randy, Angela, Danielle and Lar drew of me. They are mostly a macabre descent into madness (expecially Zach’s… seriously, someone needs to reach out to him and make sure he doesn’t hurt himself) and almost ENTIRELY EXTREMELY NOT SAFE FOR YOUR WORKING ENVIRONMENT.
CRUISE FUNDRAISER: 74/100 prints are sold and I only have until Dec 15th (5 days left!) to meet my goal of selling all 100. Help me get on a nerd boat and get some neat art for yourself in the process!
COMMENTERS: Have you ever been the butt of a hyper localized, extremely specific inside meme? How did it last? Do people still call you “Flippers” because of what happened they day at the pool?
