Statistical Fact comic series title

If you didn’t already know my “sister site” (for lack of a better term) StatisticalFact.com is up and running and cranking out new comics Mondays and Thursdays through April. The site is currently in what I’d like to call beta or “soft launch” mode as I continue to tinker with it and get feedback. Hopefully I’ll do some heavier promotion once I’ve filled out the comics archive and am confident that everything is running smoothly.

For those of you familiar with my previous comic work, you know I like to experiment with style and format and the Statistical Fact series is no exception. The obvious change for this series is the adoption of a more traditional webcomic format: short-form humor “strips”, comics featured on the front page, weekly updates, etc. I know this is the basic format of the most popular webcomics and I know the short-form comics are much easier to share on Facebook and other social networks so I thought it would be an interesting experiment to see if the new format translates to a wider audience.

The other “draw” that got me interested in this series is the freedom it gave me to do more drawing! I know that may seem like a silly/nonsensical reason but as an artist I find it difficult to motivate myself to draw anything that’s not related to a comic project. I’m not the type of person that can sit in a coffee shop and fill a sketchbook with random drawings for hours on end (although I wish I was because I know that type of experience can be rewarding). My other quirk/shortcoming/flaw as an artist is I tend to lose motivation when I’m working on long-form comics that involve drawing the same characters and environments over and over again. Statistical Fact, at least from my current vantage point, seems like it would be a nice compromise: ongoing motivation to create sketchbook-style comics and short-form so the work always feels fresh (one day I’m drawing a baby playing tennis, the next I’m drawing “Jellysaurus”).

Anyway, that’s enough borderline egotistical platitudes for one post. Please check out StatisticalFact.com, if you like what you see and want to support the site tell a friend, click an ad, “like” it on your preferred social network.

I grow weary of typing, time to freshen things up with some disgruntled pirate drawing. ;)
