Wanna be in my WebComic?

I'm laying out the next 36 pages of The Sergeant and Professor Skeary Winslow over the next few weeks and thought it might be fun to invite readers to appear as 'extras' in some of the upcoming crowd scenes. I will be adding some alien features, as the Sgt. and Prof. are the only humans in this story. Head plumage, oddly shaped ears, or something like that.
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, comment to this post before February 15 with your email address (all posts are moderated, and I will not post your email address) or email me a photo or two of yourself that I can use for reference. The better the reference, the better the chance you will appear in the comic ( I have no idea how many will submit photos, and there is a limit to how many I can put in). If you do make it in, I will let you know in advance and send, via email, a high res copy of the page you appear on.

Hope to see you soon.

Welcome Change

O.K. so this has nothing to do with Comics. But I feel this is important.

Watching as Barack Obama officially becomes the President of the United States of America, I am profoundly moved. I look forward and with hope to a world where we respect each other, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or faith. We are all citizens of Planet Earth. We are all members of the same race: Human.
Certainly we may not all agree on every issue. But I hope we can agree that all of us deserve and are entitled to fairness and justice.

One of the most wonderful things about the internet is it's ability to cross the boundaries of geography and allow people of different nations and cultures to learn about and experience each other. I am touched by the warmth of the good people I have been fortunate to communicate with through in Italy, to name just one of the international forums I enjoy. I love the world communities that flourish in cyberspace (I just had to give them a shout out ;D). They just go to show that we have much more in common than we have real differences.

To my fellow Earthlings: I sincerely wish the best for all of us, together.
Peace, and respect to you all. Wherever, and whoever you are.

'Book' one almost done, and some other stuff

Hi everyone! The first of the five 'books' in this story will be up on Monday the 26th of January. I will begin posting the second chapter in a week or three, but in the meantime I would like to keep posting something on WebComicsNation. So I would like to ask you fine people for some suggestions: what would you like to see? some of the conceptual sketches? early pencils? teaser sketches of upcoming stuff? I know that I'd like to start posting some fan art.

For my own pleasure, I am going to tighten up some of the old pages and print some hard copies through one of the PODs that can produce comic books. Anybody else want one?

I appreciate all the feedback I've received so far, keep it coming.

Thanks folks!
