I’ve been working on a new project, which will be released soon in the Sketch Comedy Store, and I’m very excited to be able to share it with you. Here’s a preview!

Guess who’s back? That’s right, it’s Matt Rizkallah, with a comic in which I am some sort of horrifying horse-thing! Also the beat panel is delightful.
The 2013 Pinhook Slalom Open is tomorrow, and I’m going to be there!
You may recall Sketch Comedy partnering with Envision Skate Collective last year to promote and support Pinhook 2012, and this year we’re doing it again. First, we’ll be selling the original art shown above and donating the proceeds to charity:water. Additionally, I’ll be hanging out at the race, bringing t-shirts and original comic strip artwork and generally having a great time chilling with cool people. The race begins at 10 AM Saturday morning (6/15), so come out, say hey, and watch some awesome downhill skateboarding races.
One of the best parts of creating a webcomic is interacting with you, the readers. However, automated spambots attempt to inundate my comments section with links to questionable internet locations, and I have to employ a comment filter to keep out the spam! Most of it is obnoxiously blatant (e.g. anything referring to a “weblog,” a “publish” or an “argument”), but from time to time I come across something that is actually amusing. Here are a few from my most recent sweep of the spam filter:

“Fastidious respond in return of this issue with solid arguments and explaining the whole thing regarding that.”
Voyance Gratuite, do you mean Skip’s argument, or James’?
On The Total Quarterback Rating Explained, Allan Ebbighausen writes:

which is probably really funny if you know French.
And on Strip Search 3 Flatulence And Country Fair, stack on safes writes:

If attainable, as you change into expertise, would you thoughts updating your weblog with more particulars? It’s highly useful for me. Big thumb up for this blog submit!
So, stack on safes, is your colleague a gastroenterologist? I’m glad you found my fart-joke comic strip so informative, and I hope your friend got you the chili cheese fries. Honestly not too sure what the size of your thumb has to do with anything.
I’ve got a guest strip up at Moth & Ethan today! Go check it out–and then check out the rest of Moth & Ethan! It’s a webcomic of biblical proportions!

You are almost certainly familiar with Gordon McAlpin (either through my numerous comics where he makes an appearance or because you came here from my Multiplex guest strip from last Thursday). Well, Gordon recently finished his first semester of grad school, and one of his final projects was to create a game. He chose to create a Multiplex card game, and he got several artists to pitch in and contribute art for some of the “movie” cards. As you can see above, I was one such artist.
The fictional movie that Gordon gave me to illustrate a still from was: “SNOWBOUND: When Henry and his workaholic dad are snowed in at an abandoned old hotel, they have to get through their differences and fend of a wacky pair of burglars.” Or, as Gordon paraphrased it: The Shining meets Home Alone.
You can see some more of the contributions over at Gordon’s Multiplex blog, “Deleted Scenes.” There’s some great stuff over there, including stills from fellow webcartoonists Wes Molebash and Angela Melick, so I encourage you to check it out.
