Well over a year ago, I drew five bonus Sporkman comics for the MESS book. Since it’s been so long, I’ve decided to post them online for everyone to enjoy now. They’re exceedingly silly, as you’d expect.
And here’s a lil’ Sporkman. There actually IS a subtle difference between MESS-style Sporkman and the traditional chibi Sporkman of his own comic. MESS Sporkman is still incredibly short, but he has more realistic proportions than his counterpart in Classic Sporkman.
I drew a random Sporkman comic today, loosely inspired by Knights of the Old Republic II, which I beat yesterday, some nine years too late.
Now that Mary Elizabeth has met Sporkman, my fictional universe has achieved critical mass.
To be clear, I’ve no problem with Homestuck or its fans. I have a problem with booth squatters. When an artist goes to a convention, they’re there for business. It can be fun, yes, but they’re there to work. We put hundreds of dollars of our own money on the line every convention, and our goal is profit and exposure.
If your table is filled with seven to ten of your friends eating lunch and chatting on cell phones, it makes your table look unprofessional and off-putting. This image is then projected onto the other tables nearby, simply by association, which means that your booth full of chattering friends is bad for business. If you aren’t at the show to work, then don’t get a table at the show. Period.
Anyway, this is all becoming rather deeply cynical for a Sporkman comic. I’ll have to make the next one perkier.
New Sporkman! These strips are basically a true story.
