Twitter Sketch-Off this Wednesday

The next Sam and Fuzzy Twitter Sketch-Off -- where I spend a day drawing pictures live based on reader suggestions -- is this Wednesday! And the theme, as suggested by more than a few of you, is Sam and Fuzzy characters in new jobs. Seems appropriate, considering how many of them have found themselves in new lines of work these days!

On Wednesday, I'll be drawing from noon til 4pm, and again in the evening from 7pm until I run out of steam. You can watch on Livestream, or just see the finished drawings as I post them on twitter.

While I'm drawing, you can tweet me (or email me, if twitter isn't your thing) your picks for characters and their new lines of work, be they...

- Sam and Fuzzy-verse specific jobs (Ninja Mafiosos, Erasers, Conscience Animals, etc)

- Real world jobs (accountant, lion tamer, nudist accordian player)

- Famous fictional universe jobs (superhero, starfleet office, dwarf king, warrior plumber)

...or any other thing that can be classified as a "job"! I'll pick my favourites and draw as many as I can. (In general, I favour suggestions that are on-theme and that involve only one or two characters, but I may occasionally break that rule if I really like the idea.)

As usual, I'll be selling the finished drawings for $25 each -- either to the original suggester, or the first person who asks. This time around, I'll also be colouring a few with markers for an extra $25. So if you want to buy one, or if you want to buy one in colour specifically, let me know!

Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Vampires, Cyborgs, and Ninjas Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!

"Is Sam going the way of Walt from Breaking Bad? A good man placed in tough circumstances who ultimately becomes an arch villain? Feel free not to respond if that spoils everything." -Colin

A lot of readers brought up the Sam/Walt comparison to me when our current story arc started. At the time, I couldn't really comment on it, because I'd still never seen Breaking Bad. But since then, I've plowed through the entire series. (And am now awaiting the final 8 episodes as eagerly as everyone else!)

As for how much Walt's story parallel's what I've got planned for Sam, well... as you say, I can't really talk about it, lest I spoil the future of the comic! But I do find it interesting that some folks think of Walt as "a good man placed in tough circumstances who ultimately becomes an arch villain". Personally, I don't think Walt was all that great a guy to begin with. I just think being placed in tough circumstances revealed his true character. That's my take on it, anyway, for whatever it's worth!

"How did Devahi get in to the Ninja Mafia without attracting Sam's attention? I know Sam doesn't personally check in on his recruits all the time, but wouldn't he recognize her voice?" -Obinna

Yes, he would! But as of right now, Sam has never even spoken to "Danielle". Judging by how mythic and unknown a figure Sam was to Carlos and Kendall, I think it's safe to say Sam generally keeps pretty aloof from the cadets.

"Now I’m all kinds of confused. In your last Q&A you said Aaron was using his bottle opener. But if you look at the comic where he shows the bottle opener and the comic where you said it was a screwdriver, THOSE ARE DIFFERENT HANDS! When did he get a second robot hand?!" -Chris




(Sorry about that!)

Fangs for the memories

That's a wrap for "Fangs for Nothing". Come back on Friday for a bit of stand-alone nonsense before we jump into our next chapter on Monday.

In other news, Skull Panda possibly returns to something at least vaguely resembling semi-regular updates today! I think? It's a bit of an collaborative experiment as we try to work out our... uh... creative differences.
