So, once upon a time I was selling a poster on eBay that I’d done for some bands that were favorites of mine in high school. And then both of the guys from both of those bands said some really ugly, irredeemable shit online while the auction was up. And so I took the auction down. At that point, the idea that someone would have my art for those bands proudly displayed on their wall made me unhappy to think about. And then, after I took the auction down, a few people wrote to me asking why, as they’d been following the auction or had bid on it, etc etc. And so I made a very brief statement clarifying why I took it down. I didn’t “@-reply” or tag anyone involved, I didn’t call for a boycott, I didn’t throw down any gauntlets. Just let my followers know what happened in as calm and magnanimous a way as I could think of.

And then one of my high school heroes called me a “creep” and an “insufferable twat” and referred to my poster as “asinine”. The asinine thing really seems like more of a vocabulary show-off than anything, as the word doesn’t really apply in any way to, you know, creating art to promote that dude’s band? But I’ll give him a pass since it’s basically the least stupid thing he’s said online in the past two days.

Anyhow. Just kinda felt like sharing that. I don’t really have a point here and I’m kinda too weirded out to really be, like, sad or angry or anything. So please don’t assume that. It’s just… you don’t not share something like this, right?

Fun side-story: One of those retweets and two of those favorites on Ben’s post came from that guy from last October who sent me straight-up one of the creepiest and stalkery-est series of emails I’ve gotten ever and his girlfriend. Haven’t heard from either of them in nearly a year until now. Huh.

Fun side-story: I’ve never said anything to you online ever, so fuck off. I’ve only been sincerely nice to you in person, so don’t side mention me in your whiney tumblr posts.

Reporting what twitter posts I like on tumblr is rather strange.

I’m going to be at Boston Comic Con this weekend! Find me at table D205. I’m right across from the concessions so you can’t miss me when you’re going to get your overpriced chicken fingers and weird sandwiches.

I have a few new items with me this year, a 20 page sketchbook (I haven’t done one of those since 2010!) which comes with an original sketch on the first page, band name vinyl stickers, and a new reprinting of Issue 1.

Screeching Weasel is crowdfunding their next album on indiegogo! I’ve never been one to be supportive of kickstarter and shit in the past, so now I get to be a big hypocrite! Check it out! Contribute ‘cause I asked nicely! I dropped enough dough on it for the internet to make fun of me already, so what can go wrong.

Screeching Weasel - Baby Fat: Act 1

I tried a Disney/Roger Rabbit style for the weasel. I’ve only seen one rendition of him full body and it scared me. Haha. Mine’s right up there too, I suppose.

Hi, quick Q. Were you the one who created the RWAM website? I was just curious... so many good memories of the message boards and stuff... I looked up the ssjvaporean name from the front page of RWAM and ended up here somehow. If you're not the creator, I'm sorry for this random email. XD I miss the site... thanks for all your work!

Ssjvaporeon is my sister. We started the GIR site together, and then when the site merged with RWAM, she took over from there. I still worked on illustrations and graphics for the site, but I wasn’t an admin or anything after the site became RWAM.

Working on a new printing of Issue 1 to sell at comic shows to have along with my big book.

The Paul Reveres webcomic site has had a huge overhaul and is back on schedule with page updates. See the new page: http://paul-reveres.com
