Today is your LAST DAY to order an official Strip Search Tee Shirt.
And check out this write up by @microbrien:
You may recognize the design from Episode 3, “Burning That Bridge” of the wildly popular webseries/reality show about the business of making webcomics, Strip Search.
Pre-order this T-shirt now–yes, this minute young (man / lady / I won’t box you into a gender binary if you don’t want me to) because it won’t be available much longer.
It’s only $17.99 and pre-orders end on April 5!
So give up your morning Starbucks for literally three days and go buy this shirt.
If you do, you’ll be supporting not only Amy, but your purchase is also a way to say very loudly that you want to see another season of Strip Search, that this is what reality shows should be, and that you appreciate Penny Arcade’s commitment to supporting other artists and webcomics.
In other words, a pre-order on this shirt is like a pre-order on more of everything you love and hold dear in life…insofar as that applies to Internet shows and webcomics.
Still, that’s a pretty big deal if you ask me. Pre-order the shirt here.
PAX East Panel, Strip Search Episode 5 & Official T-Shirt Pre-Orders
Strip Search is coming to PAX East on FRIDAY 3/22 2:30pm-3:30pm in the Arachnid Theatre. The panel is shaping up to be a huge one and space is really limited, so head over early! Mike, Jerry, Graham, and half the cast will be there, and I’m proud to say I’ll be on the panel myself. So come cheer us on and ask those salacious questions you’ve been holding back.
Episode 5 of Strip Search is out and features a very strange experience on the streets of Seattle… I won’t spoil anything but there is certainly a big surprise at the end!!
And lastly, as previously mentioned, I was lucky enough to win the design challenge in the 3rd episode of Strip Search. the Official T-Shirts are now on sale through the Penny Arcade online store and even come in ladies sizes! I do receive 100% of the profits from the sales, and for that I am truly honored and grateful. I hope you all considering picking one up, not just to support me, but to show Strip Search to as many people as possible!
I know I want to see a second season of Strip Search, how about you?
I want to cry pretty much everyday. A shirt of mine is on sale at Penny Arcade… I get to be on a panel with Gabe and Tycho with PLENTY of time to catch the Rooster Teeth panel… I met 11 other amazing artists… The internet has been very kind to me. I only hope to give everything I can to make each comic better than the last!
Lastly, if you haven’t check out everything going on at FullPickle.com GET TO IT ALREADY. It’s the new hub for , Action Food, and my journal comic Cardigan Weather. PLUS we added out first video series, with much more to come. (hint… a 404 error might be fun to try and get)
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 , 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.
Don’t Know Much Astronomy
Part one of the Season three finale as seen on 
Loling in the Deep
This one has astronomy in it… I like when Chris writes something that makes me chuckle even after reading it a billion times during the creation process.
