And, if you haven’t seen my wife’s Quidditch necklaces, you probably should fix that problem right now.
Austin, TX Fancy Bastards: I AM COMING FOR YOU! TWICE! You’ll hear more about these events from me in the coming days and weeks, but this is your fair warning that I will be at Wizard World Austin at the Dragon’s Lair Booth (along with Cyanide & Happiness) Nov. 22-24, AND the next month I’ll be returning to Austin for the biggest, baddest, best ever WEBCOMIC RAMPAGE! This year we’ll be in a new facility with longer hours, more panels, a preshow mixer, and a ton of new guests. If you are anywhere in TX, (or guhhhh… Oklahoma) it is so worth the trip.
Woohoo! The end of another storyline! I enjoyed sharing this one, and I hope you Fancy Bastards enjoyed reading it. NOTE TO SELF: In the eventual TV version of this comic, there should be some cool time travel FX between panels 1 and 2. We’ll pencil in a “Quantum Leap” and, if budget allows, upgrade to a “TARDIS noise + LOST sound”which are oddly more expensive due to licensing issues.
COMMENTERS: No boss, no job, no rules, no whatever, what is your favorite “uniform” for feeling absolutely comfortable and/or like yourself? Is it fishing waders? I bet it’s fishing waders.
I’ve been experimenting with a “uniform” for my stand-up. A few months ago it was jeans, tee-shirt, Chuck Taylor’s and my leather jacket, but now I’m experimenting with slightly darker jeans , black shirt (rolled up sleeves, not tucked in), smart Eleventh Doctor style shoes and a brown tie with shiny gems on it. I like it, but I feel like the Maitre D’ of a poncy restaurant on his cigarette break. I may experiment further with the look.The alt-text is PERFECT.
Sckazinski · 83 weeks agoJust to be nickpicky about this storyline… the characters from the past have 5 fingers in each hand, but the global “fivefingerization” occurred only this year! What the hell?I don’t know if you’ve ever seen the classic movie “Father Goose,” but in it social drop out Walter Eckland (Cary Grant) show’s that he’s romantically/sexually interested in a lady by visiting her wearing socks, which he normally doesn’t wear.
I’m a stay at home parent and I live in pyjama/yoga pant and t-shirts, and I own this shit. I have an excruciating skin condition which i will eventually probably go on SSDI for, and the loose breathable clothing I can wear at home all day now is a HUGE help in avoiding pain. Donning jeans and a bra to cart my kid to/from school is a travesty of epic proportions.
Ali · 83 weeks agoIf I’m alone, nudity is preferable. If there are people, pajama pants and a t-shirt.
Wesley · 83 weeks agoMy black fostex pants, magnums and t shirt… Basically the wat I already dress unless I feel like dressing up or there is an occasion that would be better dealt with while suited up. It’s basic practicality really.
If I could mix the practicality with it, my second option would be a kilt.I work from home 80% of the time.. I have a couple of Spartan Utilikilts… most comfortable..tthey’re made out of that material basketball shorts are.. only the jiblits aren’tsquishlits.
Wayne · 83 weeks agoWhat is this “uniform” and “clothing” you speak of?
Seriously though, I just deblouse, kick the boots off, unclasp the trouser blousing straps, loose the belt, and unzip my digi’s. That, from what I hear, is the equivalent to a woman taking her bra off at the end of a long day.
Max · 83 weeks agoSo, the surface in the comic… Do you use it to draw?
Bron · 83 weeks agoI must say I really want to keep my scrubs when I leave my current hospital, they are like pajamas with pockets (useable pockets I know some pajamas come with pockets but I find they are not good enough to use as pockets (ending pocket rant now)) if I’m working at home I tend to wear a shirt and shorts or t-shirt and shorts, basically shorts are involved in some capacity. Sometimes if I’m doing something messy/dangerous I’ll wear my Howie coat (basically a thick fabricked double breasted lab coat with russian collar, I wear the old ones I used for clinic till they fall apart they are fantastic) and my old disection apron, its an oddly effective outfit for warding off salesmen and Jehovah’s Witnesses……I used to wear a lot of scrubs, but they don’t take much abuse.
Now I basically live in my jeans. I favor the ones that I accidentally ripped holes in. They’re my lucky ones.
I also like simple t-shirts, although I don’t find many very comfortable thanks to a neck that is never happy ever with things constricting it.soooo…..going to do a write up on that surface pro? i bet that are a lot of artists out there that would be interested in what your thoughts on it are, and if you’re process is slowed down (or sped up) by using it! Seems interesting since it has a wacom digitizer and is cheaper than wacom’s stand alone tablet PCs.While i have re-adjusted my particular `experiment’ to involve becoming a primary teacher, i always enjoy seeing how parallel our lives are in some ways (went from being an accountant to a children’s musician – but the `come home angry one too many times cursing the tie until my wife, who is also an artist of some kind, encouraged me to do something i really enjoy because fulfilment and being a good roll-model for our child is more important than being a provider of money only. Even our beards are similar).
My `work uniform’ is most often a mad hatter/willy wonker/dr who looking outfit, which is only slightly more outlandish than how i used to and still dress in my downtime away from the office anyway. (octopus, pirate, and super-hero costumes also get a regular look in).
3 years ago when he saw me dressed as the Monkey king early one morning, my son kind of freaked out. 2 months ago when he (and his little sister) saw me dressed as Brer Rabbit early in the morning they both just said: `have a good gig, Dad’ 🙂To me, the flashback/forward read like one of the cool transitions from Highlander, or those ones from Watchmen that Zack Snyder didn’t seem to notice.
Kaidah · 83 weeks agoThe at home uniform is boxer shorts or pajama pants with an old t-shirt. I work too hard all day to stay dressed up afterwards. Hell, I don’t even shave on weekends (What am I, the Pope?). If I worked from home like you, my facial hair would most likely be somewhere between Zach Galifianakis and ZZ Top by now.
