Recommended Reads Round 2

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Hey folks! After spending a majority of the year working on Statistical Fact and various work projects I’m back to share a couple updates/ news items.

First off I’ve made some tablet-friendly infinite canvas comics in the past but I’ve finally got around to optimizing the core site for tablet/phone viewing. It’s not perfect and I don’t have a Masters degree in Web Design but you should have a much smoother experience the next time you navigate through on your mobile platform of choice.

Secondly I’m on hiatus from drawing for a bit while my broken arm heals so I’ve been catching up on my webcomic reading. Thought I’d share a few of the titles I’m currently digging:

Matthew Bogart: I first discovered Matthew’s work when I picked up a copy of The Chair’s Hiatus at the local Stumptown convention. The comic was illustrated digitally and had a loose, experimental style which I immediately took a liking to and tried emulate in my Statistical Fact series. His latest comic, Oh, It’s the End of the World, not only improves on this style with striking use of colors but also weaves a compelling story that’s part slice-of-life, part sci-fi and wholly original.

Formal Sweatpants: Fans of the Far Side will definitely want to check out this series as it shares many similarities (both in style and subject matter). Josh’s uniquely surreal renderings of creatures (who often look like they’ve been crossbred with Jabba the Hutt) never fails to amuse.

American Elf: The first, best and longest running daily diary webcomic. Reading a single installment might cause you to dismiss the series as slight or trivial but taken as a whole it’s undoubtedly an epic and very personal achievement.

That’s all for now. If you’d like to see more webcomic recommendations you can find them here.
