1. Anonymous asked: When you look back at something like Ant Colony, do you feel any sense of pride and accomplishment for having created a well rounded, polished piece of work? Or is it more like, on to the next thing.

    well, the “on to the next thing” feeling is what’s satisfying. but no, i can’t say i’m proud of anything i’ve completed

     


  2. fiachrahackett asked: do you think you'd ever like to animate anything?

    well, sort of - i’m working on something animation-related this month, although there’s a high chance it will never see the light of day. i did this short thing a few years ago, as well

    but overall, comics are mostly where my head is at, and what i’m best suited for

  7. Anonymous asked: Do you think putting up comics online hurts the sales of the printed versions?

    no. for me, i’m pretty sure it’s only helped. i’ve been putting comics up for free for as long as i’ve been making comics, and i imagine that’s how a lot of my readers first came across my work. i like to think i’ve built up a certain amount of goodwill with those readers, who in turn come out and purchase my comics when the time comes.

    i mean, i don’t know what the sales figures are for ant colony (maybe it’s completely tanking.) but i think that for the most part, if someone reads one of my comics online and doesn’t think it’s worth purchasing in printed form, they weren’t going to be buying it anyway. it’s not like my comics are crazy expensive — ?

  9. mcqueen90210 asked: Hallooooooooo from Australia. I was wondering if you are able to talk about which characters you had input into on Adventure Time / or if you have talked about this before? The latest episode had these Citadel Guardians that made me really think of your style

    The character “Jake the Dog” is based off my personality and likeness
