Guest strips wanted!
Posted April 17, 2012 at 05:26 am
Hey y'all! I don't do this very often, but I'm making an open call for guest strip submissions right here, right now.

Recently (like, today) it occurred to me that once I'm home from Calgary in two weeks, I'll be leaving for TCAF immediately afterwards. Realistically, I'm not going to be able to do three and a half weeks' worth of strips by next Wednesday.

So let's see you fellow artists take a crack at GWS! Send the following to me at with the subject "GUEST STRIP":

  • your strip (preferably a JPG or PNG at 900 pixels wide)

  • your name (or the name you'd like me to credit, if you have a pseudonym, you little minx)

  • the URL to your own website, if you have one (just one, please!)

  • the name of your comic, if you have one

  • The absolute deadline is April 24th (as in, I'll be on a plane April 26th). It's short notice, but you always have the weekend! ;)

    In case you'd like a little guidance, here's what I suggest: make it something YOU would want to read; stick to the GWS characters if you can; don't be afraid to get surreal; don't get carried away with sex/language (keep it respectable!); make it your own. :)

    I can't wait to see what you guys do! The strips will run April 30-May 4, which means I'll be running my 5 favorites in the main comic space at the top of the page; by the time I'm home, I'll post links to ALL of the strips so that all your hard work isn't wasted.

    Thanks in advance, guys!
