It's probably somewhere with your self respect

Ok, another late posting, and I am up WAY later then I wanted to be tonight. I guess it was worth it though.
Ok, I need to be in bed and sleeping.
Next Morning Edit:
This is a perfect example of why you should not write dialouge when it is way past your bedtime. Sorry if the diaolgue makes no sence. The purpose of the strip is the visual joke, and hopefully you get the visual joke even though the word bubbles are actually abstructing it a bit. I also put in the arrows, for my readers who are not typically "comic readers" and don't know the proper order of reading them. Plus the arrows gave me an excuse to add color to an otherwise color lacking strip. I hope one day I give myself enough time to edit a strip where I can color the entire thing, and perhaps make some detailed background work, for "special comics".
I hope the quality of this strip in no way affects your judgement of future strips.

Nothing, Mr. Simmons

(click to enlarge)
Now this is what I call a last minute strip. I started penciling it at work on Monday, and really didn't get past the second pannel until I got home from work on Thursday afternoon. Problem was I knew how I wanted it to start, and end, but I wasn' sure how I wanted to go about the middle bit. And I am so freaking tired today, and have been pretty much the entire week, that I don't even know if any of this strip makes sense. If it does, gat. If it's funny, even better. I finished editing the minute before posting.
Well today I am going to be seeing Conan, and then going right from the taping to the Yankee game. A fun NY day for sure. Maybe I'll find time this weekend to work on more strips. I might be taking an unscheduled hiatus. I'll let you know.

I think it was something about the economy

Ok folks. Not much to say on this one. The art work looks a little rushed, but only because I was all "Coffee Jittery" when I was inking the outlines. Damn coffee.
Everyone has a friend like Bobby, stoner or not. It amuses me. To some people, I am that friend. Am I right, or am I right?
Ok, that's about it for me. Stay tuned, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel.

I do, stop complainning

Well, welcome to the begining of my first story arch. YAY! Progression is fun.
I was thinking of ending this one with Link running from the picture of the rain, but that would involve more cells, and frankly, I am far too lazy for that.
I am back on track, sort of. I am still drawing the next strip for tuesday, but I figure I can have it done and the next strip after that started by Monday.
So what do you guys think with the comic back on track. I would like to hear your comments, especially if you are a new reader.

They Also Think About Really Cool Web Comic Ideas

(click to enlarge)
In case you missed it, the joke is stoned people only think about Monkeys and Robots (besides the previously mentioned other things they think about).
So what do you think about the new mascot? I like it. I can have some fun with this one. Notice I am back to the old format of minimal color. I am planning on staying that way. It's just a million times easier, and I feel like all the characters look different enouhg that I can get away with it. I am actually quite proud of this strip. IN my opinion, it's one of my best yet. I am also happy to be back to strips, although I am already behind in getting them updated.
You may also notice that I have changed the layout of the page all together. In lew of having good navigation, you can scroll down to read the previous posts, as apposed to click on the dates. I also added a few other comics to the side bar; one of note, Joe and Monkey. It's quite obsurd, and the author must be a stoner, because all he talks about are Monkey's and Robots (and sometimes ducks). It is very funny though. Had me laughing all through the office.

Group Picture - Faculty

(click to enlarge)
Question: What has two thumbs, and forgot to update on time?
Answer: This Guy! (point's to self with thumbs in a baggy that were cut off from some other guy)
So here is the staff, well the ones I introduced you to anyway, in all their "staffy" glory. The text on the books is kind of hard to read regretibly, because the books that Professor Bobberton has to read are quite characteristically humorous. I also just like the dress of the staff, it's very fun, and I am pretty sure every one of us at one time or another has had a teacher dressed as one, if not all, of the teachers pictured.
Also, if you notice, the grass is astroturf, at least it is supposed to be. And watch out for Professor Anonymousshadow. He's got that fist of rage goin on.
Ok, actual strip on tuesday. And it's a duzey.

Group Picture - Students

(click to enlarge)
It's evil I tells ya. EVIL! Happy apocalypse day everyone! Is anyone going to see The Omen remake? I might. I have to give someone a call to see if they want to. If only I was ready with a topical strip, and not some kind of "street scene" with the "students" of "C-M University".
I am quite proud of this piece. I think it is a fun capturing of peoples personalities, and also allows all the student characters to be seen at one moment. I wanted to get the professors in there too, but it would have been too much going on. So the professors will have their own like this on Friday.
As far as the contest, it is over, on the grounds that I have no entries, but that is ok, I picked one out from my own brain, and then resulting strip will hopefully be quite humorous. I think people will like the mascot I have chosen as well. If not, maybe if this thing picks up more momentum, I'll have another contest. I am also working on definitely moving to an actual web server, and not just this blogger garbage. I already have the domain name secured, now all I have to do is build the site, and find the time to do so. Thankfully I have a small plethora of strips to work with while trying to build.
Ok, well that's all for me. Feel free to leave comments, especially if you have now useless ideas for a mascot.

Find Your Way Around Campus

(click to enlarge)
Well here is it, a simplistic map of campus. I might not know where Auschwitz is (even though I do, read comments on last post for explanation), but at least I can make nifty campus maps. There are a lot of sidewalks at this school. Once again, I am going to file this under "Lazy last minute update". Sorry to anyone who wants more. Hopefully you like the names of my buildings.
Ok, hope everyone has a good weekend. See you all on Tuesday.
