the official Slingshot episode
Posted October 13, 2005 at 02:01 am

And thus is born the Slingshot.

To anyone who has asked me why the title of this strip is "Girls With Slingshots" when there has yet to be more than one slingshot reference, things will start to make a lot more sense from here on out.

And now, a little guest art from the one and only Russ Harp...

(Click to enlarge!) As always, Russ blindsided me with characters I don't even remember drawing!

Here's another little treat: reader Greg Thelen put together these GWS wallpapers for anyone itching to add a little GWS to their desktop:



Thanks, Greg!

In other news, my internet is down and I'm only mooching off friends for the sake up updating this site.
E-mails won't be answered for awhile. Not... that... I was doing such a hot job of replying to begin with....

Also, tomorrow (God willing!) I'll finally bring you a travelogue tracing the trip I just got back from with Val, so check back when you can!

Guest strips will stay up there at the top of the blog for the next week.
After that they'll go away for awhile, and when I get the new site design finished (circa Christmas of this year) you'll be able to get to them via the navigation bars above and below.

Pray for me as I go through the torture of being disconnected from the world for the next 24-48 hours.
And in the meantime, if something catastrophic happens - say, a country blows up, or Jade finds out she's pregnant - would somebody please call and inform me?
I'll be at home, drawing by candlelight and cooking my dinner over a fire, boiling a pot of water from the Potomac to avoid developing a nasty case of dysentery, oblivious to the world outside.

It's free, infrequent, & not annoying.

I also love the podcast My Brother My Brother And Me!

My old pal R. Stevens and I used to do a podcast called Coffee and Cider! It was mostly about being work-obsessed idiots and human beings who like beverages and have cats.
