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

OK!

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!

Skull Panda Loves Skull Panda

Did you know: after a brief late-summer hiatus, Skull Panda returned last week, and is currently providing a weekly triple-dose of Rikk Estoban/Sam Logan collaboration over on the Skull Panda tumblr! Meanwhile, on my own tumblr, I am chronicling the creation of a big Sam and Fuzzy Green Lantern parody commission I'm working on, step by step! Truly, there are words for you to click and stuff for you to look at.

Did you also know: Today is my awesome wife's birthday! She's in England for school right now, so I can't give her birthday wishes in person. But I can find out if she actually reads these newsposts!

Art Auction ends Today!

Today, we flash back to "simpler" times... two days after the first fateful meeting of Sam and Fuzzy. (The meeting itself can be seen in the classic First Noel story and nearly seen at the end of Sam and Fuzzy Fix Your Problem.) Continuity nerds will remember that at this time in their lives, Sam was bombing his way through his first semester of university, while an entrepreneurial Fuzzy was trying to get back on his feet after being abandoned by Hazel two months earlier.

Today is the last day of my Sam and Fuzzy "Animal Kingdom" original art auction! As of right now the bidding rests at a reasonable $76, but I think with your help there's still a good chance we'll hit my initial goal of a cool billion dollars before the end of the day. (Funding the rest of my life and the lives of the next three generations of my family.)
