Today…on December 8, 2012 at 12:44 am
I drew the first “Chronicles of Today” back in 2004 although I think there are some very similar comics in some of my sketch books from before then. I’ve always liked auto bio comics but the idea of drawing the minutia of my life seemed rather boring. So an auto bio comic with monsters and robots seemed perfect. Needless to say since those first few pages in 2004 I’ve never lasted too long with the series because I’ve always been working on something else at the same time. This is the first time I’ve ever been working on Today and only Today. I could be wrong but I believe this last month is also the longest I’ve lasted consistently putting out Today comics and I’m still having fun so that’s good. I’ve also noticed that this comic has me thinking different through out my entire day. I’m constantly on the lookout for that moment in the day that I’m going to turn into a comic. Sometimes it’s obvious and sometimes it comes to me later but I’m always thinking about it. So much that I’ve started having to get selective with the writing. The past 8 days or so I’ve written a comic for almost every day. If I do that though it’ll be mid December before I’m actually posting comics from December. So I’ve got one more comic from November and then we’ll be into this month’s adventures. There’s gonna be Lava men and glitter and all sorts of cool junk. Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m pretty committed to keeping this thing going. Also it really helps out when anyone “likes” a page on facebook or whatever social whoring site you use. It would be awesome if we could get a decent word of mouth campaign going for the site. I’d be super grateful, seriously…I’d do stuff for you. Like draw you a picture. I don’t know what you were thinking but it was probably perverted.
