Dragon’s Lair Webcomic Rampage 2014 Fancy Photo Comic

“Now David, everyone knows Jesus can only see you if you move. Just like a T-Rex.” My friend David draws naked college kids smashing their under-bits into each other for his job. I’ve read some of them. He’s… he’s good at it. Tags: conventions, david willis, dragon's lair webcomic rampage, photos,...

Webcomic Rampage 2014 Fancy Sketches

INTRODUCING THE SKETCH-A-MATIC! The idea is simple, but the technology behind it is VAST and COMPLICATED! It works like this:  The willing participant presses the big, red, impressive button The machine SPRING TO LIFE whirring and gyrating and buzzing When it finishes processing your individual, one of a kind sketch topic, you will hear a distinctive DING! 2 topic cards are spit out of the machine and placed on the sketch generation matrix The user may then choose to ad a multiplier card that will irrevocably alter the sketch in heretofore unimaginable ways! The machine’s operator (known as: The Artist) begins generating the one of a kind sketch using pencils and pens and paper like some horribly out of date 2D printer Basically I was getting a lot of similar sketch requests at conventions, OR I was getting  a lot of “I don’t know, draw whatever you want,” type requests, so I developed this system to ensure there was always a decisive sketch idea ready to go, and that no two sketches would ever be exactly the same. I’ve tested it out for the first time at Dragon’s Lair Webcomic Rampage in Austin and the results were incredibly amusing. Plus the whole process of “THE MACHINE” is pretty fun. I’ll definitely be bringing The Sketch-A-Matic to conventions where I exhibit as HijiNKS ENSUE (but not the ones where I’m sketching with Cyanide & Happiness).

Webcomic Rampage 2012 Fancy Surreal Tablecloth Guest Comic By Zach Weiner

Webcomic Rampage 2012 Fancy Surreal Tablecloth Guest Comic By Zach Weiner

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! ME AND WIL MADE A NEW SHIRT HOLY CRAP I LOVE IT! UPDATE!!! WE ALSO MADE HOODIES!  COMMENTERS: Have you ever been the butt of...

Webcomic Rampage Panel Pt. 1 On The HE Podcast

There is a special episode of the HE Podcast UP NOW. It is a webcomics panel recorded at the annual Dragon’s Lair Webcomic Rampage event in Austin, TX. Enjoy! It features myself, Danielle Corsetto of Girls With Slingshots, Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content, David Willis of Shortpacked and Randal Milholland of Something Positive. If you like listening to friends tell stories about stalkers, shitty jobs and making a living doing what they love, I think you will appreciate this. Here are some pics from the event on Flickr and Facebook. LISTEN OR DOWNLOAD HERE!

Dragon’s Lair Webcomic Rampage 2010 Fancy Sketches

Get your HijiNKS ENSUE Book 2 Preoder on! GO HERE NOW! 1/3 of the Ultimate Fancy Editions are already gone! Thanks to all who came out to Dragon’s Lair Webcomic Rampage in Austin this weekend. Especially the wonderful staff at Dragon’s Lair and my co-guests and friends David, Danielle, Randy, and Jeph. If you are in the Austin, TX area and find yourself in need of comics, trades, table top gaming supplies, or a place to do said table top gaming, you really need to give Dragon’s Lair a visit. I recorded the audio from the 2 panels we did over the weekend in hopes of turning them into a podcast. Assuming the files are intelligible I will do my best to edit them together into something you will enjoy that it not 4 hours long. Here are some photos from the show courtesy of @Merbrat, and here are some custom baby onesies that we all drew on for Athene. I also want to draw special attention to the fact that The United States Postal Service stole one of David’s boxes of books and replaced it with half a blender. To make up such a thing would be ludicrous. To actually have it happen in real life is almost sublime. Just look at his sad puppy face. If you need something from the HE store before Dec 24th (like maybe some HE Holiday cards), you need to order RIGHT NOW! Check out the [recently moved up] shipping deadlines at the top of THIS PAGE.

Dragon’s Lair Webcomics Rampage!

Dragon’s Lair Webcomics Rampage!

Thank you to everyone that came out and said hi last weekend at Dragon’s Lair Comic and Fantasy in Austin, TX. I think all the cartoonists were in a agreement that it was a fantastically fun time. Special thanks to Alison for coordinating the event and running the 2 most entertaining panels I have ever been a part of. The panels were videoed, so hopefully they will be available in some internet fashion at some point. I had a blast. I really enjoy the opportunity to meet readers face to face and personally welcome new Fancy Bastards into the fold. I also enjoy the way regular people stare incessantly at 10 or 15 webcartoonists while we eat Tex-Mex. Between Danielle and Christi pining for the nearest titty bar, Jeph proclaiming that Texas owes it’s independence to a mulatto prostitute and Randy telling us all how one of his early ancestors stabbed a priest, robbed the church then burned it to the ground we had even the “keep Austin weird-est” people choking on their flautas. I think we officially changed the slogan to “keep Austin worried.” EDWARD SHIRT SHIPPING UPDATE: The goal is to have every US shirt ordered by Dec 4th arrive by Dec. 24th. That’s what the shipping deadline says on the order page and everyone involved is doing their best to make that promise a reality. There is a possibility that some of the shirts ordered late on Dec 4th will not arrive by Dec. 24th. Any shirt orders (this applies to ALL HE SHIRTS THAT ARE NOT SHIPPED FROM TOPATOCO) placed after Dec 4th probably will...
