This is a cute comic! What do you draw the comics in? I'm a MS Paint gal and the world of Photoshop is still far too complex for me to use as my primary drawing program. I like how you account for lighting in the comics. Awesome! Keep up the great work!

Hey, thanks! I draw the comic in Photoshop with a tablet. I've been using that setup for a while, so I'm pretty comfortable with it, but the learning curve is pretty steep initially.

That's a good set up! :) I agree the learning curve seems quite high, but it seems like it's well worth it! Keep up the great work!

I will certainly try. :)

New strip today, by the way.

Mr. Stinky is as spunky as usual I see. :wink:

Mr. Stinky is my favorite character (as I'm sure anyone reading more than a few strips can tell - I give him a lot of the best gags). Recently, his artistic skills improved, and he drew this strip.

I'm up to 93 strips now. Today, I did a comic about Dolphins and Friends crackers again (actually, just Whale crackers now), and it's pretty adorable.

Somehow the field of ketchup still conveys a sense of tragedy...perhaps more fries should be at this party. :wink:

The ketchup field is definitely a bit tragic - especially since it drowned two characters.

Today, I finally hit 100 strips. I wanted to share the latest with you guys. It's epic. Seriously - it's the largest comic I've ever done.

There are enough friends that the header is getting a little packed, ain't it? Love the 100th comic, well worth your time to bring everything together. It'd be good if your cast page had links to comics of first appearances for characters. I very much appreciate your links at the bottom of the page as I can't remember where everything comes from; it also is very good to send new readers into your archives, and I think is a great idea to get your new readers in and keep old ones. Good stuff sir!

Why thank you!

I really do want to update the cast page with character appearances. In fact, I might do that really soon. As in, tonight, if I have the time.

Congrats on reaching your 100th strip.... I'd probably have more on all of mine if I could update as often as I wanted to....given more money and less real world work. :wink: :P

Okay guys, strip #112 is up, and it's another huge one (bringing to close a story arc that began with strip #101). Check it out:

And today, I did a strip in response to a thread I have in the Penny Arcade Forum. Like so:

I doubt the FDA and a few health departments would find you as "successful." :wink:

I got burned out with the comic and had to take a break, but now I'm back on a reduced schedule. I present you with...a new strip!

Yep, it's still going on - just more slowly. I'm trying to do one a week now. I had a take a break - my job was taking all my time.

I've put up quite a few new strips in the past couple of months. Today's is a continuation of the current story. I'm quite happy with it. Check it out!
