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

"In Limbly's first appearance, he's black-eyed like the rest of the gang and seems quite opinionated! Ever since then, he's been pretty quiet, with a couple of X's for eyes.

So I'm gonna have to ask...seeing as X eyes in cartoons usually means dead, or at least, unconscious...does this mean Limbly is now...possibly brain dead? Or perhaps something less extreme, like trapped in a coma? The lights are out, but his body lives on to drum?" -James

Haha! Worry not for old Limbly. He is definitely still alive, and can still speak! He just doesn't get many opportunities to talk since he's such a minor character. (He actually has a line in an upcoming comic, but only one.)

However, his head does take quite a beating, since he's been using it to play that giant timpani drum for several years now. I think I started drawing him with Xs in his eyes in an attempt to further exaggerate the... er... impact that his art is having on his body. (The shot of him passed out on his drum was probably a similar attempt.) But for now, we'll say he's just regularly dazed and confused, rather than literally comatose.

In all honestly, I don't even remember making the eye switch! Until you pointed this out, I would have sworn he always had X eyes...

"Does Flick then go off and start the Ice Bucket Challenge? Again?" -Tom

Flick will probably be very disappointed to learn that's already done. He wants a gimmick that's all his! So it probably needs to be something less emulatable.

"Do you ever publish your pin-up/Saucy Hippo art anywhere other than Patreon? Do you think you'd ever make a book collection?"-John

The "Saucy Hippo" tier of my Patreon is pretty much the only place I post it, yeah! I will occassionally share "PG" pieces or previews on my social media, but I'm always a little wary about doing so because I don't want to annoy any followers who aren't into it. (Or who are used to reading my stuff at work!) I've found Patreon to be a great home for my pin-up work because it's opt-in and has an age gate. (Well, and also because the support of my backers is the reason I've been able to make time to start drawing it regularly!)

As for a book of pin-up stuff... I'm not sure! There's certainly enough content for one at this point, but I'm not sure how much demand there is for it in dead tree form. It might be something I think about in the future, but for now I'm focused on finishing the final Sam and Fuzzy books. (Which I'll be kickstarting soon, I swear!)

That's all for today, team! See you on Monday with our next comic.

Flicked Off

I don't think that's how that works, Flick.

In other news: over on my social media, I've shared a few more of the "alternate universe Fuzzys" I drew last year based on Patreon backer suggestions! You can see 'em all on my Instagram or Twitter. (Or, you can see all my past monthly "art vote" bonus pieces and vote for future ones by backing my Patreon at any level.)

View 'em all on Instagram, Twitter, or Patreon

We return on Friday with our next comic. See you then, team!

(Re)Meet the Band

This week's scene is a surprisingly rare moment in S&F history... a scene in which all the members of Noosehead are present! There is absolutely no reason for anyone to know the names of all the members of Noosehead. But hey, if you really wanted to, they are:

Nicole - Lead Singer
Malcolm - Guitar
Flick (the guy who lights his head on fire) - Guitar
Ali (the cat) - Bass
(The big guy) - Drum Kit
Dixon (the guy with a knife stuck through his head) - Bongos
Limbly (the dude with a stitched mouth and no arms) - Timpani Drum
DJ Freshfoot (the guy with a cage on his head) - Turntables
Muffins (the guy in a rabbit mask) - Making feedback noises with a microphone
Dancing Guy (the guy with the big teeth and cape) - Interpretive Dancing
Triangle (the normal looking man in a suit) - Triangle

And then of course, rounding out the roster is a Sheet of Looseleaf Paper (which was hastily made an official member when the band's record deal required them to have "13 members"), and also a Second Sheet of Looseleaf Paper (which was added to the 13-member roster when Noosehead's original lead singer, Sidney, left the band).

Now you know! Even though you didn't need to. Come back on Wednesday for our next comic!
