Book making

Plenty of time to share interests with the kids!

Right now my daughter is big into comics and graphic novels geared towards kids. She also reads pretty much anything you put in front of her, so it’s pretty fun! But, tying to explain to her that making a perfect bound 200 page full colour graphic novel isn’t something you can do in an hour has proven to be interesting.

yes, yes, there are ways you can be crafty and make a perfect-bound book at home, but not with the supplies we have during this time of physical isolation. We’re stuck in our house. We’re burning through our supply of printer paper. I wonder if staples is considered an essential service?

Space Chuck Web #8

Spacechuck web 8It’s hard to believe that i’ve only updated this little story only eight times, but i guess when the updates are two megs of PNG, things can progress a little quicker!

If you are actually managing to stick with this comic, you rock!  You are my favourite!  If you are feeling a little lost and would like to easily access all eight updates in order, click this link!  Or, if you prefer, click the “ALL the Space-chucks” tab at the top of the page!

ALSO, it’s DECEMBER FIRST, 2014!  Which means my NEW BOOK IS FOR SALE!  yay!  It is the BIGGEST book I ever made!  I’ve priced it at $15, which is pretty cheap i think, considering it’s MUCH bigger then the old books and has much more content at a much higher level of quality!  It has 400+ comic strips in it, the 2013-2014 week-dailies.  Shipping will bump the price around to the $20.00 range, so if you ever see me and buy it off of me personally, it’ll cost yah $20.00, but if you buy it straight through the store, fifteen!  FIFTEEN DOLLAHS!  awesome.  Click the link!

some kinda trick question

2014-9-5

When I was thinking of how to punch this comic, i had a couple ideas.  the first idea is the one you see presented before you… The second idea, which i actually liked better, was to have charlie say, “is this some kind of a trick question?”  But as I was brushing my teeth, I realized that I would be pretty much verbatim stealing the punch line from a Calvin and Hobbes strip, the one where calvin is pounding nails into the coffee table (oh yeah, the watterson one is WAY funnier).

Have a great weekend everyone!  find some time and read a book, because KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!  and reading is good for the ol’ mind-grapes.
