Aghtbar's Website!

Our buddy Agthbar has some new digs where you can easily peruse his timeline of all 38 episodes that have been posted thus far. I think he used a trowel to hollow out his new den in the digital earth, but I could be wrong - we're not on speaking terms at the moment because of an argument that we got into over the holidays. And despite my attempts to hug it out, he refuses to compromise. I think that's why he didn't show up for work today in the typical 'episode format'. He's a very complicated cartoon character.

Enjoy his new website!

Tis the Season, Tisn't It?

Happy Holidays everybody. I decided to redraw a comic that I did about a year ago, in hopes of spreading holiday cheer like strawberry jam across a warm slice of toast.

Here's the new one:

Here's the old one:

It's sort of like regifting, but involves a lot more effort.

Port on Ice

I'm happy and proud to announce that the Royal Squid Press has begun printing someone's work other than my own! I designed and printed the covers for author R.F. Kramers literary debut, 'Port on Ice'. In addition to the short story 'Port on Ice', the book also includes a poem by author/poet Chris Kalman and a three-page comic by yours truly (about a classroom guinea pig named Merlin). I have already sold out of my copies, so you will have to order your copy through the man himself: rfkramer (at) gmail (dot) com. This is a very limited run for the first printing, only 60 copies! So place your order quickly! This is the author's debut.

Book Fair on Saturday

Here's a nice little piece about the East Bay Alternative Press Book Fair in Berkeley this Saturday. There's even a quote in there from me. I'm honestly just excited to have my name published as both James the Stanton and Gnartoons in the same article, copy-editors are no match for my disturbing abuses of the English language. This post needs an image doesn't it? Here's a weird drawing that I did a long time ago and just found on my hard drive.

Come to the East Bay Book Faire this Saturday and say 'hi' to me, I'll wave awkwardly and offer you a sticker. Here's the info.
