I dunno if you’ve noticed, but sometime over last Summer… I THINK, I started formatting my comics vertically rather than horizontally. I noticed a lot newer webcomics doing this and after a bit of thought and some caaaasual research, it seemed like a good idea considering most people read comics on their smart phones. Back when smart phones were getting popular, I assumed people would turn their phones or tablets on their side to read comics in landscape. But I think peeps are way more into reading their comics in portrait, which means vertical comics make more sense. I miss the old horizontal format probably because it’s how I read comics in the paper, so it FEELS like “comics” to me. But I try super hard not to get stuck in my ways about shit as things change. Anyway, wanted to get your opinion if you care to share. Do you dig the current format or do you miss the old one? I am in the middle of redesigning my site to work better for mobile and to just look better in general, but I am basing the new design around my comics being vertical. Lemme know what you think in the comment section below. THHHAAAAANNNNNKS.
Heya, dudes! Last week I had the honor of being the 4th guest on the new podcast, Conversations With a Webcomic Artist. I’m looking forward to following the show. There aren’t a ton of interviews of webcartoonists out there, so Bob is filling a void I’d love to see filled. I had a great time on the show and I hope you dig it.
Heya! If you are reading this, thanks for sticking with me through the dodgy post schedule I have had. Doing Channelate has always been something I love, but it’s often taken back seat to other things that have taken space because they’ve paid my bills. Some of that stuff in the past wasn’t the best, like day jobs and freelance work of the boring variety. Some of that stuff has been and still is awesome to work on, like when I worked on the first two seasons of The Cyanide and Happiness Show. Right now is no different. I’ve been filling my work weeks with animated Channelate, which is presented by Explosm on their YouTube channel, and the Cyanide and Happiness Minis. Both have been incredibly fun to work on, but as is always the case, the Channelate comics have had to suffer a dodgy post schedule yet again. I’m really really going to try to stay on top of it. It wasn’t a New Year’s resolution or anything, but I would like to get back on a steady post schedule. It’s hard because I spend a lot of my time working on the other two projects to pay dem bills and the comic is in reality a labor of love. No real point to this post other than to say that I always have this comic on my mind. Sometimes it’s painful to be working long hours on other things and watch the site not be updated. I really appreciate everyone who reads the comic and even moreso those of you who share it with your friends and family.
Alright, back to makin dick and divorce jokes and makin them move. (short out a week from today!)
