I have no explanation for this, other than a) I wanted to see if I could still draw mainstream comic book style, and b) This is why you should never draw tired. (WEIRD. STUFF. HAPPENS!!)
So, yeah. That’s a thing there. Happy thanksgiving to all of the American Weregeeks out there. I’ll see you all back here tomorrow (Friday) for the CHAPTER END!!! We’ve got some exciting stuff planned for the next chapter, so don’t miss it!

Hey guys, it’s that time of year again! I’m opening up my yearly COMMISSION SALE starting TODAY!
As usual, every sketch commission will be sent out digitally in plenty of time for Christmas gifts! If you live within the US or Canada and you order quickly (ie before December), you might also be able to get physical artwork in time, but since I’m starting the sale so late, I can’t guarantee it. And of course, as usual, I will broadcast/record the drawing sessions whenever possible!
We’ve also got a bunch of new merchandise up in our Topatoco Store, so if your family is more into geeky shirts than geeky art, then I’ve got you covered there as well!

Will Benedetti is familiar with a wide variety of plant-based rules systems, including Savage Ferns, GRAPES, and Call of Kudzuhlu. Therefore, it is not at all strange for him to suggest that there’s a topiary side-game going on – he might have even planned it himself!*
In other news, I will be doing a convention this weekend… from home, in my pyjamas!** ComfyCon was a convention invented by Randy Millholland and Danielle Corsetto when they had to miss out on San Diego Comic Con. Instead of going to the effort of flying somewhere and setting up huge booths, this con will be all digital – all of the “panels” will be held on Google Hangouts where a number of webcomic artists will chat with you and answer your questions on a variety of topics!! I don’t have any other information available yet (such as the starting times), but I will be posting them here on the blog as soon as I do, so watch this space for ComfyCon deets!!!
EDIT: Here’s the link to the ComfyCon schedule!!
* May or may not be factually accurate
** Probably not actually in my pyjamas. More likely in a warm, cozy sweater and my comfiest skirt and fuzziest socks. It IS autumn, after all.

Let us all take some time today to remember.
(Also, as a side note – we moved servers over the weekend but the new DNS hasn’t quite finished propagating yet, so if you are having trouble with the site, that’s the cause. It will resolve itself shortly, so try refreshing!)

Halloween might be over, but I couldn’t let the week go out without one more spooky sketch. These are some character designs I’ve been playing around with for a few undead dudes. I imagine that the big zombie enforcer dude only speaks by saying ‘braaiiiins’ in a variety of intonations. Brain? Brains! Brains.
