BIG NEWS!!!

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 25, 2014, 12:36 AM
This Sunday, 10-26-14, at the IE Zine Fest in Redlands there is going to be a reading of Elsewhere at about 3:20!!! I'm not sure exactly how to do a proper reading of a comic but I'm sure to come up with something! Come Join the Fun. The Redlands Art Association has something going on at the same time.

Just finished working on a little Halloween treat for all of you it will post at webcomicunderdogs.com and my site as well. You lucky readers!

The last batch of College Elsewhere to post before the end of the month. Over 100 strips that ran most of my time at college. There is for one more surprise I'll tell you about there.

BIG NEWS!!! Guess who is going to be in the First Comic Underdog Calendar! That's right Butch and Walter are slated to be Miss August! These will be printed and for sale on line. I will post details when I have them.

That's right just assume I am brilliant and follow along. ALSO Elsewhere NEEDS 4 more subscribers to move up in on the sites search engine. Please consider subscribing, it just takes a couple clicks at elsewhere.thecomicseries.com . Contact me about books of sketches or other. I am taking in outside work. I hope to have more good news soon.

  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: Chicago and 70's Classic rock
  • Reading: Comics and bills
  • Watching: Whose Line, Big Bang, and Red Dwarf
  • Playing: With My Kids.
  • Eating: Too much, Need to be healthier
  • Drinking: Too Much Caffeine

OK true believers, What Elsewhere strips do you like the most? The everyday live stuff or the big adventure comics? Looking at old strips and am amazed at how good they were at doing nothing (But being funny at the same time).

Sorry mate, DeviantART is the only website for me :dalove: I was hosting Foggyvale Misfits on Smack Jeeves, but it got too stressful trying to juggle both websites and personal life. I'm really not in it for the exposure at the moment, just want to keep a low profile for a few months or years. That way I can focus more on creating new strips and finding employment, and then worry about the marketing aspect later ;) But I will keep a note of that website for when the time comes to "flaunt my goods" :XD: Comicfury looks very promising traffic-wise.

And thanks, I'm glad you like my comics :)
