Here is our fifth “Hobo and Bowser” story arc. The guys find an abandoned, rotting shack and decide to refurbish it.

With some new paint on the walls and less clutter, the ol’ website here has gotten a facelift. There are still a few more things to do but overall she is complete. This was done to coincide with the overhaul of the Hobo & Bowser comic archive!
We are currently going through all of the old comics and reformatting them to better fit the website design. Additionally, this is a good opportunity to make ALL of the old comics look more uniform in their appearance, touch up the art here and there and rework/punch-up some of the dialog. This will make for an easier segue into the new H&B strips when they start to run later this year.
11 of the updated strips are already on the site, and the rest will follow shortly.
Potted Meet Monday
For any of you readers who may be local to the Minneapolis, Minnesota area, I will once again be a featured artist at Potted Meet Monday. This time, I will be drawing comics LIVE. Guaranteed to be a great time, come on out have some fun and say hi! You can get more information at Potted Meet’s Website.
As we enter into March and the snow drifts here in Minnesota grow higher and higher, I’ve found some time to make a drawing video. This is a drawing of the “Jenny” character from the upcoming Jenny’s Block comic:
I’ve also recently made an update to Jo Wednesday’s character design:
I’ve made her coat a deeper orange and tried to soften her face a little more. I’ve also made her ears a little more “curvy” as they go behind her head.
Work is almost complete on finishing the script for Rabnet’s “Take the Produce and Run” story. I have the next five pages sketched and will have the whole thing laid out by the end of March if not sooner.
February Potted Meet recap:
I was one of the featured artists for the February Potted Meet Mondays, a local shindig here in Minneapolis. I brought print outs of completed strips and original artwork from all of our comics for display through out the night:
It was a truly wonderful experience watching a crowd of people walk up to my artwork and our stories and enjoy the work. Putting the strips up here on the website has a sense of being removed from our readers even though you directly access this website. Being in the same room as the readers though was phenomenal!
The word on the street is that at an upcoming Potted Meet I will be drawing strips LIVE. Keep your eyes here for further information as we get closer!
For those of you who live in or near Minneapolis, Minnesota this Monday the 10th I will be one of the featured artists for “Potted Meet Mondays”. From the groups website:
“Potted Meet Mondays is a hang out that gives Twin Cities’ artists a chance to show off new work at various stages in many mediums, within a comfortable and relaxed environment.
This is not a show. It is a hang out for artists to experiment in front of a live audience, and though we have featured artists every week, there is not a designated schedule… everything happens at its own time.
These events are meant for everyone. Whether you are an artist, or just someone who enjoys art, this is the only place in the Twin Cities you will be able to hang out and to converse one-on-one with locals about current trends in the arts while being in the presence of it.”
I will be there with many of the original drawings and comics found here at H&B Comics. If you happen to be in the area come on out! This is a free event with live music and lots of good people.
