Back in February a friend of mine, Kurt Belcher, contacted me and asked if I could recreate a comic logo for him as part of a project that he was working. Stink is published by Source Point Press, and they had a title/logo designed by Sheldon Vella, but needed a scalable version for use on the book title, spine, and various promotional materials. It was a fun design to recreate, even though it was not a design of my own.
Contents of the graphic novel itself are by Chuck Messinger and Kurt Belcher. The story is of a post-apocalyptic world where three weird friends – chain-smoking unicorn Ray, failed fairy godfather Bundy, and evil cursed prince Michael – make their way in the aftermath. Check it out for sale now on Amazon!

This past Friday (03/27/2015) was the 100th episode of my ‘Sects comic strip. It is now the longest running of all my comic strips so far. This milestone came and went quietly, I suspect, for most of you… but I did take notice a couple of weeks ago of its approach.
I decided not to do anything special for the story, as it naturally broke at the end of a week in the form of a cliffhanger as it always would have anyway. It’s nice when everything comes together like that. You will, however, begin to see some changes going forward.
The first tweak, is a change to a more natural lettering font for the dialog. Along with that, I will be slightly changing the presentation of the dialog itself. As the comic strip grew and I added more characters, I realized there were some limitations to the way I was constructing things previously that I wanted to address.
By the way… the one hundred episodes so far were ninety of the Monday through Friday episodes and ten of the Sunday editions. What does this mean? It means in two weeks we have another mini-anniversary of the 100th non-weekend episode!
‘Sects is often strange fun, but there is still lots of story left to tell and more characters yet to be introduced. I hope everyone will continue to enjoy what’s soon to come. Please share and tell all your friends to take a look and catch up. Things are going to get interesting!
