If you've enjoyed reading my comics and have a little extra money to throw my way, I'd greatly appreciate it. I am a young, unemployed artist living in the city trying to scrape up rent money every month (no guilt trips here...), so any money you could donate would be great. If you have 10$ or more to send my way, I'll make it worth your while! Include your shipping address and I'll send you a small drawing or piece of art...each one will be unique. Thanks everyone!

    about three months back, me and my girlfriend were like, obsessed with your comic in your portfolio with the title BSFS or something. Do you have any plans to like, publish it?

    Aaron and I did that comic about 2 years ago, and while we planned for it to be a 3 issue series, we kind of lost interest in it when I moved onto doing diary comics and we started Batcave Beach. Even though it was intended to be longer, we think it works as a self-contained story. That said, we’ve always kept it in the corner of our minds as a potential project…I still really like the story (although I’m not sure how i’d feel going back to grayscale), so in the future we may continue that comic, but for now we have too much other stuff to do! Thanks for asking!

    Damn, haha. I’ll make sure to keep posted – I love your daily-ish comic!
