009 – On Your Mark

I was nearly done with this one when suddenly Photoshop crashed and of course I didn’t save anything. Oh well, you live and you learn.

On a side note, I have decided to change my update schedule from Monday, Wednesday and sometimes Friday to Tuesday and Thursdays. The reason for this is that school is coming around again and I don’t think I will have the time for an extra comic every few Fridays. I would rather not tease you with something that I may not be able to deliver and I want to ensure that what I am giving you remains at a good level of quality.

Enjoy today’s comic! I will see you all again on Thursday!

    I really like the look of your work, Matt. Nice stuff.

    Although I like the idea of 2-3 per week I understand the balancing of personal and professional life. Will look forward to Tuesday and Thursday! Keep up the great work!

    My second favorite strip after Robot Beach is Mutts. That strip also has a crab character: http://muttscomics.com/strip.aspx
    see the strip for 7/15/09
    Your crab has a much nicer disposition!

    Mike – Thanks for the complement! It means a lot to me! I have been a fan of your stuff for a long while now!

    Steve – Yeah, who knows… Perhaps if I get far enough ahead on my buffer I can push it up to three times a week. I don’t want to find myself in a position of compromising the quality of the work just to get it done. In fact, I want to be taken more time on these and putting more effort into them than I currently am.

    Scott – Don’t tease me. We all know that Mutts blows everything else out of the water. Patrick McDonnell is amazing! My Grandmother would send me Mutts strips in the mail every week when I was in college. In the margin’s she would write “This one reminded me of something you would make.” Gotta love Grannys!

    The robot has a tongue too… it is metal? Rubber?

  6. Matt says:

    It’s tonguey.

    Just read through them all. This stuff is great Matt! I love what you’re doing. Looking forward to the future!
