Notes of note
Evolution 107.9, the British Columbia Institute of Technology student radio station, will be running an interview with me today at 9AM PST! If you'd like to hear it, their station streams online right here
Also, last minute appearance notice: if any of you Vancouver-area readers attending Vancouver Mega Comic-Con this weekend, you can find me at the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival booth, which I'll be helping Shannon man over the weekend. Although it's not exactly my usual Sam and Fuzzy con routine, I'll be sure to bring my art supplies and a few books and shirts, just in case anybody would like something!
Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Candlestick Maker Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Can you create a "Shoulda Ordered Pizza" kitchen apron? I will be the first to purchase one." -Evrim
The "Shoulda Ordered Pizza" apron gag was conceived in the Topatoco San Diego Comic-Con booth at the height of con madness. I've been pushing to use it in Skull Panda ever since, but Rikk kept saying no. So I was very pleased when the Sam and Fuzzy story finally presented a logical place to slip it in as a background joke.
But it's also an apron I would actually like to wear myself in real life, so I'm totally going to make them! I think I have a pretty fun visual design for the text that visually incorporates the fruits of Fuzzy's culinary abilities.
"As far as your Green Lantern commission work goes, why in the name of Sector 2814 would you pass up the opportunity for a terrible pun and have Fuzzy instead of SIN-estro?" -Jordan
Well, technically it was the fellow ordering the commission who picked the characters! But even though Sin would make a delightfully pun-ny Sinestro, I think his personality makes him a pretty solid choice to represent Greed, too. And given the current story arc, I think it's kind of fun to cast Fuzzy as Sam's arch villain!
"Is the story now at a point where it could be read in chronological order? I'd love to be able to read through the story in the order of the time that has passed in the story." -Ryan
You could! I mean, technically, an insanely dedicated soul could read Sam and Fuzzy in chronological order at any time... all it takes is a few hours of obsessive, laborious rearranging. But there are still quite a few key "holes" in the Sam and Fuzzy timeline, and until those moments are revealed, I think a chronological read would still have some confusing gaps.
That's a wrap for this week, team. See you on Monday!
