Caught up...almost.

I have posted new offerings for you. I will have tomorrows offering up...tomorrow. Understand that when I get behind like this I sacrifice sleep for Vexxarr. This is actually a good thing because with enough sleep deprivation, I can actually SEE Vexxarr. And he is just about as grumpy as I am.

So, car spot shot in the spaceship cockpit housed in my garage.

Airs in three cities.

I get to watch an ad writer get his inner geek on as he is suited up in one of my space suits and placed before the camera.

How does the other half live, anyway?

Late Friday and Monday

What's up:

I'm doing a series of car spots. I've already been to Huntsville and back. Now for reasons I can't adequately explain, I have to refurbish the cockpit of the Matilda. What is the Matilda you ask? The Matilda is a spaceship from my epoch science fiction film, Zero Prospect. Well, against all reason, the cockpit of the Matilda is being resurrected for a car spot. Yeah, I know...I tried to tell them. Anyway, I'm up to my armpits in common cellar spiders and hot glue. When I awaken from a fatigue induced coma, I'll deliver two artfully crafted Vexxarrs.

This isn't Real Life. When I miss a day...you get that comic back with interest. And maybe those castle pictures I promised you...

Mythbusters: The parody - HELP ME!

OK, my roommate and I shot a Mythbusters parody as part of the "You Spoof Discovery contest". We entered it into the discovery spoof contest and promptly forgot about it. Well apparently we were picked up and now our video is on the Discovery.com website. It's called "Mythbusters: Death of the Mythterns" and is currently #5 in its division. It needs to be #1.

This is where YOU come in.

Go now - NOW - to Discovery.com and look at all the videos showing there. Pick your favorite one. Then no matter which one that may be, VOTE FOR OURS.

Vote early and vote often.

Friday's strip, if you hadn't guessed will be a tad late. I had problems with my Windows 98 box which runs my Umax Visa S8 scanner. Further, I had a shoot in Huntsville for a Mazda dealership...

It's up again and I'll have a strip done by tomorrow. For now, take the Mythbusters parody as Friday's offering. I'll have another installment of the FOSS saga up by Midday Saturday.

Friday's is ready but not ready...you know?

We had a huge power failure here in Birmingham Alabama last night. I am told that it is due to a sub-station failure. Knowing my fellow Birminghamite as I due, I suspect goats were involved.

Anyway, a new strip has been pinned and is almost ready to scan. I'm currently trying to get my various PCs and Macs to rebound from their trama and as soon as I do, the new Vexx will be delivered forthwith.

And as it involves a bit of fan service, I think you will like it.

Why So Late?

The simple reason is that these Foss pastiche strips take a lot of time. I'm sure that you e-artists out there could run circles around me but I'm spending upwards from two hours per panel on these Chris Foss send-ups.

The complex reason is that I have also been finishing three projects which JUST WOULDN'T DIE. One was for a client who attended a conference who's media needs were being provided by an organization who shall remain nameless.

Now to say that this nameless company is inept would be a grave insult to inept persons the world over. Suffice to say that any media organization that cannot play back a Quicktime movie, nominally encoded, either within a Power Point presentation or as a stand-alone clip, needs to leave the industry. They just aren't doing the world any favors by taking its money. Add to this a general malaise over avi encoding, DivX codecs and a general unwillingness to use a telephone and we have a real danger to the US economy here.

I further had to finish a three-hour-long seminar on DVD and a smaller project for a real estate client and I just wound up slipping further and further behind.

Fear not, I'm caught up and I have the next several strips in various states of completion for your future reading pleasure.

I would also like to add that I have enjoyed the spontaneous fan mail I have received recently. I love the occasional reminder that my efforts are meeting with your educated approval and that, of course, you are in fact out there.

Friday Three-fer!

There. Three comics. It's 5:20am. God, what a week. I'm going to bed.

I'll Be Honest...

Looks like another two-fer for Wednesday. I just finished the Alabama Partners for Clean Air presentation video and I still have to paint the castle (pictures forthcoming). I drive to Atlanta tomorrow and blow the damn thing up on film. Hoorah...

I'll likely get a comic done by tomorrow but I'm not sure when I can upload the thing. Then there is always the issue of font rebellion...


No comic tonight. Likely two on Wednesday and as always, three by Friday. ALWAYS three by Friday. If I ever skip a comic entirely, take shelter in your basement. It simply means that the dust cloud hasn't hit your side of the planet yet.

Behold! The Comic For Today!

And Wednesday's for those of you keeping score. I hope that today the joke is finally clear. As a fan of vintage sci-fi artwork, I just couldn't resist. In the next few strips, expect some burned midnight oil. This premise is all about the painstaking detail. But fear not, there is a punchline in the works. May I live to deliver it...
