Comic 1016 – Guest Comic: Kari Maaren

Comic 1016 – Guest Comic: Kari Maaren

Kari: I drew this before I learned that Ghibli was shutting down; you can imagine what my subject would have been if I had waited just one day. Otherwise, it’s worth noting that: 1) yes, those are some of my characters from West of Bathurst and It Never Rains in the second panel; 2) I drew this comic entirely digitally, using D&E’s template, and got quite frustrated because of how teeny weeny that template was; 3) I have never made curtains of anyone’s skin. Yet. Continue

Comic 901 – “Searchlight Coalition”

Comic 901 – “Searchlight Coalition”

Errol: Wow. It’s been how many days of this contest? And if CBC isn’t wishing I’d shut about this, the ‘serious’ musicians probably are. Hah!

Anyway, there have been some great articles out there covering this. Check them out!

If you know of any other blog that would like to do a quick promo, by all means, send them our way! ^_^ And next week? I think we should start letting CBCMusic know we mean business. I have some plans. Any of you guys got ideas? Continue

Comic 900! – “Searchlight Persistence”

Comic 900! – “Searchlight Persistence”

Errol: Our NINE HUNDREDTH COMIC! I have no idea what I’m going to do at a thousand.

I know I keep saying we’re not going to win, and believe it or not, that’s not a defeatist attitude. I’m not saying it with secret hopes of winning either.

But I can’t help myself, I want to throw 200% into my projects.

Some people go into projects knowing they will fail, and thus set themselves up to fail. I am not going to do that. I will go in, lasers blazing, and I will go out in a Death Star explosion of glory. I’m not afraid of failure.

Does that mean I don’t expect you to vote? No! With every vote, there is a chance that the geek music genre gets noticed. With every vote, there is a chance that one of us will advance to the next round. With every vote, CBC Music will find out that we have passionate fans!

Do you know what would be cool? It would be cool if Canadian Conventions, who are looking for geek musicians, could look at their own country and think, “Wow, we have a lot of bands to pull from!”

There are a lot of talented geek bands in Canada, and I want to find them all. I want to promote them.

I am not giving up. I will continue voting, and I will continue pushing this. And I need you guys!

Thanks for sticking around for 900 comics. Thanks for being with us all this time. We are small, we are unknown, but we will keep on geeking out as long as we can. ^_^ Continue
