Next week I’ll be on vacation, but the SC updates will keep flowin’! We’ve got a guest strip from Benzie Johnson of Passing Period lined up for Tuesday, but we’re still accepting guest strips. If you’d like to do a guest strip, please send it to Jackson at thesketchy. Please keep ’em 900px wide or less, and suitable for ages 10 and up.

CALLBACKS: Buy Guys
In case you didn’t see the announcement yesterday: RedditMeet has commissioned a comic from me! Check out their site to see the comic–and to see what manner of Reddit-related coolness they’re up to.
The comic features Howard.
P.S. Special thanks to David Cody Cook, AKA the DCC, for helping me brainstorm up some uses of shyguys.
CALLBACKS: Drive By
The 2012 Pinhook Slalom Open is tomorrow! I will be there drawing comics and selling shirts and watching people skateboard. Perhaps you, too, will be there; only time will tell.
Personally, if Waluigi ever got his own game, I would totally play it. That or the Koopalings. On a related note, Gamervision has a list of the Ten Reasons Waluigi is Awesome; fair warning, the last one is a bit off-color, but it’s still a pretty hilarious list on the whole.
Also, the call for guest strips is still open! If you’re interested, please send your guest strip to Jackson at thesketchy by 6/28; keep ’em 900px wide or less, and suitable for ages 10 and up.
Intellectual property is intellectual theft! Okay, not really.
I’ve been invited to exhibit at Envision Skate Collective’s upcoming slalom race for charity! If you’ll be at the race, stop by my table and say hey; after all, nothing goes together quite like skateboarding and webcomics.
If you’re planning on competing in Envision Skate’s upcoming slalom event, just a reminder that tomorrow (6/13) is the last day to register. The blue button to the left will take you to the registration page, or you can find out more at the Envision website.
Also, I’d like to remind you that I’ve been invited to exhibit at the race! If you’ll be at the race, stop by my table and say hey. If you’re there primarily for the skateboarding rather than the exhibiting internet cartoonist, I could probably learn a thing or two from you. Almost all of my skateboarding knowledge comes from playing the snot out of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater in high school.
Sweet news, sports fans: Envision Skate Collective has invited me to set up an exhibitor’s table at the slalom! From 10AM on Saturday 6/23 until the end of the event, I’ll be there drawing commissions, selling t-shirts and original artwork and watching the race. I’ll have more information next week on what shirts will be available, but you can bet the classic Descartes ‘iThink’ design will be in the lineup.
Also, as noted earlier, I’ll be running guest comics during the first week of July while I’m on vacation. If you’d like to do a guest strip for me, please send it to Jackson at thesketchy. Please keep ’em 900px wide or less, and suitable for ages 10 and up.
I’ll just be honest with you, the full extent of my skateboarding knowledge comes from playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and watching SK8 TV on Nickelodeon when I was eight. I have never been able to ollie in my life. But Envision founder Peter Metzger has cool ideas and determination to implement them, and when cool things start happening, the enthusiasm can be infectious. If you’d like to find out more about the race and possibly get involved, there are tons of buttons and graphics just above that can tell you more with just a click.
Also, in news unrelated to skateboarding, I’ll be running guest comics during the first week of July while I’m on vacation. If you’d like to do a guest strip for me, please send it to Jackson at thesketchy. Please keep ’em 900px wide or less, and suitable for ages 10 and up.
Finally, the Existential Frogs from last week were such a hit, I made up two extra bonus Existential Frog comics! You can find them in the Facebook page’s Bonus Art album.
