While up at college, I work for the school paper doing weekly "editorial" comics. I put that in quotations because they're not really high brow or political like you'd expect editorial comics to be. I collaborate with my roommate, Shaun Morton, on these.
This was the "pilot" strip, which features caricatures of Shaun and I. He's a writing major, so he's usually the one to come up with the ideas, as where I draw them.
That's my dad on the far left. I sneak in cameos whenever I can.
This comic garnered a lot of controversy. Not because it features a kid getting his ass kicked, but because we used the word "Sissy" first. This comic was accused of promoting homophobic violence. I thought of the word "sissy" as just a schoolyard insult, I didn't think it connoted anything deeper than that. Whoops.
This was about a rat problem in one of the dorms. We were advised to do a more "tame" comic after the "Sissy" controversy.
I ended up liking the character on the left so much that I starred him in an animated short I'm currently working on.It was late...and I just really really wanted to get this one over with so I could play Brutal Legend. Eh, they can't all be winners.
