A glimpse into some of the initial mistakes I made with the first round of shirts. Nothing negative. Just learning from, and trying not to repeat them.

Suggestions for teh comics:
1. Do some black-and-whites or short coloreds for a couple weeks and work ahead on your full-size coloreds. As a reader, I'd have no problem with it, and you (and we) might get more out of it than any of us thinks.
2. Keep a notepad on you to jot down comic ideas while you're out and about, watching TV, recording the podcast, etc.
3. (tongue-in-cheek) Blow off going to funerals for watching them on web cams: http://www.funeralstreamingnetwork.com/
Not to knock you, but Jeph Jacques over at QC does full color big paneled dailies.
Then again, he doesn't have a family.
Welp, getting errors trying to e-mail pics of me in my GYFB shirt, so here they are instead.
Not at all. This is still new to me. I also dont reuse backgrounds and props (which I should be doing to save time).
Love the salute. Thats the Fancy Bastard spirit!
true that. I'm noticing in some of the latest comics, it's Joel on a couch wallowing in his own filth. That's the same background each time, man. If you're really looking to try something new, act out your comic with your real life selves, as long as it doesn't require any body mutilation.
But its not the same. I draw it each time. its the same idea, but its never the same couch or the same position. One of these days im going to have to draw reusable backdrops like the Penny-Arcade Kitchen, or the Penny-Arcade Living from circa 2002.
Theres a couple of comics where they act it out and write in speech balloons. Neat idea but it doesnt appeal to me.
I've worn my GYFB shirt twice since I got it last Friday. It is definitely in the upper tier quality of shirts I've ordered from the internet. I'll send in a pic of me wearing it soon.
At this point it looks like I'm going to the Democratic Convention in Denver this year. Once that's 100% settled I'm definitely buying a Roslin shirt to wear to it.
two shirts enter, one shirt leaves!
Dear god. Please get a picture wearing it next to a politician.
Funny… but I like mine better. I guess Im biased.
Absolutely. You'll be the first to get proof of it as well.
Ah ha ha! The bitch of it is that cat loves (LOVES) me. So much so that quite frequently I have to dig my finger into her ear just to get her to leave me alone, as simply tossing her to the floor is never deterrent enough.
She is, after all, my BattleMech copilot: http://wadmaasi.shackspace.com/photos/jadeismycop…
That pic is priceless. I want to believe she is whispering battle strategies in your ear.
She made many a hot-drop with me during the MechWarrior4/Black Knight/Mercenaries peak. That particular shot is probably 6 years old, at least.
I just watched this vlog and as someone who is in the throes of researching and brainstorming (re: going into business using my art) this has been very helpful. I still have a lot of your site to check out…and I will. Just wanted to thank you for sharing your info!
