demanded inspired by my best pal, who I modeled the baker after. You may recognize him from an old comic of mine. I think I’m caught up on CM comics, except for tomorrow. Ah crap. Back to work!
Check out the store!
It’s a little late in the week, but here is a second comic! It is not based on a true story at all. Because I bet they don’t allow guns in comics at jail.
Sometimes, like panel 2, comics just write themselves. Hope you enjoyed this and thanks for stopping by!
Why not give the shop a look? A lot of folks seem to enjoy that Tummy Hole shirt…
First new comic now that Denver Comic Con is over! I’ll get pictures uploaded and a write up on here soon.
It was a blast seeing folks laugh at these strips in person and meeting folks from the internet!
Like most of the webcomic community, I’ve been watching Strip Search. The best episodes have been the elimination episodes, where we finally get to see the artists make some comics.
If you haven’t been watching, two artists get put up for elimination at the end of each day-which is covered every 3 episodes. The two artists each pull an idea out of a magic trash can full of ideas, then they each create a comic that somehow incorporates the two topics.
Every time I see one of the episodes I think, “I should pause this once the ideas are shown, then go create my own comic.” The pressure of “the competition” won’t be there, but I could at least set myself the same time limit.
So, on Friday when the new episode was released, the two ideas were FLATULENCE and COUNTRY FAIR. After the ideas were revealed, and before I went to look at the spoilers to see the comics produced, this comic is what I conceived. I didn’t give myself a time limit, though. I just wanted to produce it. I estimate it at 4 hours. Next time, though…
A good sign you’re doing it right: if someone wakes up another person by laughing at your comics:
@stewped I woke Alison up laughing at that.

Whoa, this one got a little bit out of hand in the length department. I hope you enjoy it while I wait for my refund on this clearly expired plastic lemon juice.
Apologies for missing the last comic and for being late with this one. I hope you’ll forgo sending me hate mail. Although that would be better than no mail at all…
Important and fun news: some folks convinced me to sign up for an Artist Alley table at Denver Comic Con next year! I would be ever so pleased if you came to visit me there next year. If you’re interested in seeing me drunk in public(of course I’ll sneak a flask in – how else could I deal with you strangers), why not let me know what you’d like me to bring by emailing me: aj (at) stewped (dot) com or sending me tweets on twitter? Or asking me some sort of questions on Tumblr? I also have a Google+ profile with a link wherein you can send me messages. Tell me what drawings you’d like me to bring. Or shirts maybe? Thinking of kickstarting some more Life is Pain stuff…
I’m pretty sure THIS is the darkest comic I’ve ever made. The wife helped with it. So, you know. I won’t be alone in hell.
If you’re interested in the way this comic was made, head on over here to see a process gif of the comic.
A couple of weeks ago on Twitter Kris Straub posted some of those silly formspring questions. This one (below) reminded me that I had some ideas which would fit perfectly in the chainsawsuit style.
Man, I wish someone would do a parody of my stuff. I think that good, strong parody, even when cruel, indicates a level of attention paid or care that is rare. It really is about distilling the most familiar traits of a thing, then putting them on display in a clever way. It’s an essay. It’s a form of criticism, which can be corrective or supportive. No one has done it to me, I think, because no one thinks enough of my work.
I’m not quite sure if this is parody or not as, from my point of view, it would fit right in on his site. If I had drawn it better. It is pretty obvious that I didn’t practice drawing in that style, but I figured, “they’re just fat stick figures and I’m decent at them!” My linework could be a bit thicker, but I have terrible anxiety about drawing thick lines. Any time the line became thicker (due to the pressure-sensitivity) I screamed a bit in my head and erased.
