(Sketchy is currently paused while I concentrate on my sci-fi comic, A*.)

Simple and ridiculous as it is, "Sketchy" can be derived--pretty nearly entirely--from concepts mined from other, far superior comics: Nedroid (gleefully absurd adventures), 123 Step! (sketch comic), and Soup (blob character). Put those three together, and you have the obviously winning combination of a hastily drawn blob who has absurd adventures: Sketchy!

The reasons for it are that I've been wanting to have some outlet for absurd adventurism, and that I got to liking the thin line / thick line sketch technique I came up with as a time-saving device in cranking out storyboards for A*. If I can draw 60 of those in a day, surely drawing just one per day--and one that probably doesn't even have a human character in it--should be a snap, right? How smart is that. It started out being drawn with the Brush Tool in the ancient Photoshop 4; currently, I draw it using the Ink Tool in the free program GIMP.

Also, there's no story. Well, there is a story, but only in the sense that your mind struggles to make logical sense of things it reads in sequence--a tendency Sketchy will be exploiting to the fullest! Prepare for meaningless absurdity on a daily basis.

Well, not on weekends. You'll just have to supply that for yourself.

Prints are printed from the high-resolution (starting with page 187, anyway) source files on glossy 8.5"x11" cardstock by an industrial, truck-sized printer, and signed by me in sparkly ink! Sketchy prints come *with* their captions by default, but if you'd prefer just the picture part, you can specify that in the "Special Instructions" field on the order form.

I like what you have so far. Almost Curit-y. Hmm... a few more, and Starschwar-Mar won't be able to stop himself from providing narration.

Maybe I could make t-shirts that say "KETCH." :D

I keep forgetting about poor Sketchy. Just finished my backlog. Funny stuff. I'm going to do that Mar-styled narration once my work load thins out.

I've been meaning to ask... is Sketchy modeled after a clenched fist, in profile?

Author:  BC [ Mon Mar 01, 2010 11:16 pm ]
Post subject: 

Nope! Does he look particularly fisty in one of them? Maybe I should do that some time, make him like a Super Twin: form of...a fist!

Man, the Super Twins sound awesome. Not like those lame Wonder Twins who just turned into buckets of water.

And no, that's not mine.

Haha, awesome! Well, this means it's easy to do Sketchy impressions. :D
