for some reason i seriously get like 5 emails in my spam box from Runescape every day. i've never even played Runescape. i've watched some people playing Runescape back when i was in middle school, but that's it. i have no clue how i got on this email list where they think i am interested in playing Runescape.

it's true, i have way too many video games to play. me and Matt are still playing through Borderlands 2, i've only just beaten the Leon campaign on Resident Evil 6, i don't even have my second gym badge on Pokemon White 2, and i've only unlocked ike ten of the 50 or so animals on Tokyo Jungle. i also recently acquired Journey, Flow, and Flower, and have yet to play any of those, and Matt bought Arkham Asylum, which i need to play. it is a tough life i live.

dear readers: i am so very very sorry that i've been failing so tremendously at keeping up my strict posting schedule. i have been busy working and traveling halfway across the country to visit my absolutely wonderful girlfriend, Ceci. if all goes according to plan i should be getting back on track and posting at least one comic a week, though, and two or three a week when i can.
also i would like to thank Matt for the idea for this post. i think the drawing turned out pretty great.

you may remember sometime last month i had a comic about working on a piece for an art show. well, the art show happened (back at the end of August/very beginning of September) and i just realised that a lot of you guys probably never saw it. well, here it is!
i contributed this Buizel illustration to the super fantastic 649 Monsters art show, all the proceeds from which went to the great organisation Child's Play. if you go to 649monsters.com, you can see all the great art they had, and if you go to the Pokemon Podcast's store, they've got 649 Monsters t-shirts, which have all the artists' names (including mine!) and they've got very limited amounts of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres prints for sale. all the proceeds from those will go to Child's Play, just like the art from the show, so you should check it out!
last i'd heard, 649 Monsters raised at least $1000 for Child's Play, and i'm super grateful for having been able to participate!

it's true, i do have art in an art show coming up, but i haven't actually been this stingy about showing it. i've shown i think my immediate family and my girlfriend, but that's it.
anyway, i've got a piece of art in the forthcoming 649 Monsters, put together by the absolutely awesome folks at It's Super Effective, in Milwaukee from August 31st to September 1st.
you can find out all the details about this super awesome art show at their site, http://www.649monsters.com/. if you're gonna be in the Milwaukee, WI area around the end of the month, please check it out! all the art will be up for auction, with the money going to the awesome organisation Child's Play!

seriously, i went into the game determined to prevent him from dying on the floating continent, and i had no clue what i was doing and welp, what do you know, he's dead now. and then i saved, and my only older save was from like five hours into the game. i've got Gogo and Mog in my party now, though, so that's cool.

i feel absolutely terrible that i missed my Thursday update. i'm so so so sorry, you guys. hopefully this extra long comic at least partially makes up for it? also, just so you know, i'm going out of town with my family for about a week, so there won't be any updates for a little while. i'm planning on posting a comic on probably Saturday, August 11.
also, cool news! i've got a two-page comic in an Idaho comics magazine a friend is putting together! he's got a kickstarter for the project going at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/43361793/idaho-comix-underground-magazine, and there's a little over a week left! any backing you can do would be fantastic, and even if you can just signal boost it, i'd greatly appreciate it!
also here's the song that's referenced, if you're wondering:

majour thanks to Dave Mcneill for sharing some Faygo with me (and a few other people) last night. good deal.
also i just want to add: i am not trying to make fun of Juggalos or anyone who likes Faygo. i say, if you like something, and it's not harming anyone, that's awesome. you like it as much as you can. like it so much it makes you cry, like it so much you go out of your way to get it, like it so much that it matters more to you than anything else. if you like Faygo, that's awesome. i, personally, find it to be a little sharp and sweet, but whatever floats your boat. and i do still find it fun to drink.

i know that most of the main actors were the people who worked on the planning and programming of the games, but still. even playing just one minor role, like one of the people who looks through the peephole on their door in that village in Riven, would be so great.
also, is it just me, or does the guy who plays Saavedro in Myst 3 look kind of like an older Chris Kattan?

i've actually had the idea of using "the hopelist" in my webcomic brewing in my head for at least a year. at first, i thought about having it be a pseudo-magical object, the songs on which were unidentifiable even when looking up lyrics on the internet, but decided against it.
i may post a tracklist or potential tracklist for the hopelist in the future, but i don't have it ready today, i'm sorry.

honestly, i have trouble thinking of a better place to be than in a car at night with friends, singing your hearts out to "Blister in the Sun" by the Violent Femmes.
and then, when the song gets quiet, everyone drops down to a whisper, and the car becomes, for a split second, completely silent. eventually the vocals come back in, and you and your friends just shout out the words as loud as you can, and everything is real and magical and perfect.

i felt sort of weird writing this comic, since it references Clem's car, The Ocelot, and it's been like years since that car was talked about by name, and maybe even at all. also i kind of really like how these last few comics and the next few comics coming up are turning out. i feel they're well written and i'm pretty proud of them
also i think i've been losing some definition in my scanning of these last few comics? i'm sorry about that and i'll look into it.

if all goes according to plan, i'll have another comic for you guys tomorrow! i had a nice time at work drawing comics all night, because we were really slow and i had a lot of free time.
also, are you guys interested in good music? lately i've been listening to a lot of Dylan Sizemore, and i definitely recommend you check his stuff out. as a warning, though, some of his music (but not this song) does swear.

sorry my comics posting has been a little lax lately. i will, if all goes according to plan, be fixing that over the next little bit. i have a good deal of updates planned for the next while. also, it's kind of weird writing non-joke comics that are more of story building than anything else, just so you know.
