2013, Big News & Strip Search
But before that… I want to announce that I am officially 100% a full-time artist. I left my day job early in December to pursue my creative efforts and begin building my career. I am currently freelancing as an illustrator/designer and will be posting information on personal (non-corporate) commissions in the coming week. Thank you all for your support in making this difficult and thrilling decision.
As of January 1st, 2013, that day being this day, I am finally able to share with you all what the hell I’ve been up to. I come to you with the Mother of all hangovers, ripe with fresh anxiety for the new year, to tell you about how I somehow found myself on Penny Arcade’s long teased reality show StripSearch.
What is Strip Search?
It is a new reality show airing on PATV sometime very soon! It featured eleven highly talented webcomic artists and a lovable chump (yours truly). We competed for a chance to win a huge cash prize and a year of studio space at the Penny Arcade office in Seattle. Read the official teaser here!
I applied initially for laughs, as I thought I would never actually make the cut, but round after round went by and I stayed in the running. It went from some thousand artists, down to twelve. I can assure you, none of it felt real, even hearing I was one of the twelve that would be in the horrifying clutches of Gabe & Tycho seemed nebulous.
Of course, I can’t tell you anything just yet as Strip Search is cloaked in super secret mystery… and, as you know, is yet unreleased. Demon of business, Robert Khoo, details a few key points in his interview with Fleen. What I can tell you is it marks the beginning of an exciting new year for me. I will be exhibiting at conventions, moving to a new location, releasing the new season of [citation needed], producing more Cardigan Weather, opening up my online storefront, and who knows what else.
As always, I am so thankful for my fans and followers. I encourage all of you to check out the Strip Search competitors and see the ridiculous talent-pool we were thrown into: Lexxy Douglass, Ty Halley, Alex Hobbs, Abby Howard, Maki Naro, Tavis Maiden, Erika Moen, Monica Ray, Katie Rice, Mackenzie Schubert, and Nick Trujillo.
