An Update from Jackson

August 26, 2011

Sketch Comedy has been going strong! I recently finished an entire freaking month of Independent Music James and now I’m doing a bunch of contemporary parodies and pop culture commentary (which for some reason mostly consists of football). I had a veritable deluge of traffic when my My Little Pony parody comic got featured at Equestria Daily. We’ll see if the bronies stick around for my football nonsense.

In September, I’ll be going on vacation starting the 10th, and I’ll be running a handful of guest strips to cover my sabbatical. I’m pretty excited at the prospect of my first guest week(s?), and I’ve got some talented cartoonists involved.

In the future, I intend to overhaul how the Subscribers’ Edition is handled, offering better archiving, more extra strips and bonus art, and multiple subscription packages at more affordable prices. Once I return from vacation, I’ll be submitting the comic for review to various webcomics review sites and blogs. I’m also beginning to prepare prizes and materials for an upcoming Sketch Comedy contest that should help get the comic some publicity.

In non-Sketchy news, I have been working for the past few months on a new Minecraft building project. Once it is finished, I will post magnificent screenshots.

New Sketch Comedy feature: the Sketchy Activity Daily

June 13, 2011

This is a new project: Sketchy Activity Daily. For fifteen minutes every weekday, I will draw something and post it up on the internets–specifically, those internets which are related to Sketch Comedy. The drawing will probably be silly.

Some drawings will post at the Sketch Comedy website, all of them will post at Sketch Comedy’s Facebook page, and Friday’s Sketch Activity Daily will be a Subscribers’ Edition exclusive. And will I post some of them here on Air Theremin too, from time to time? Probably.

See, here is one already. We are off to a good start.

Jackson’s Independent Art of the James

May 2, 2011

Independent Music James

Independent Music James, of Sketch Comedy. Which you should read. And do read.

It is Independent Music James! It is not some other kind of Indie Rock person from a webcomic that I’ve never seen! Notice that it is not drawn in an aliased, pixelated style! We’re not getting sued!

It is a Fargate! From the makers of Thindependence Day!

Jackson’s Art of the Whatever Period of Time

April 27, 2011

Joyce (Dumbing of Age) and Karen (Sketch Comedy) share a mutual interest in sweater vests

Joyce wears sweater vests. Karen wears sweater vests.

This fan art was basically inevitable.

Jackson’s Art of the Day

March 29, 2011

Sketches of Joyce from It’s Walky/Dumbing of Age and Karen from that thing I do with the words and the pictures. Drawn for comparison.

My character designs are more cartoony. Not that David Willis’ style was hyper-realistic to begin with.

Magical Orange Tic-Tacs

November 17, 2010

I love orange tic-tacs.

MS Paint Adventures is like a magical, opaque box of orange tic-tacs. It generates an orange tic-tac at random intervals.

They are so tiny and delicious that in no time whatsoever you have eaten them all. So you put the box down for a little while, but in a matter of time you are back, checking the box for tic-tacs. Maybe there is a new tic-tac. Naybe there are five! Maybe there are none at all.

The only way to know for sure is to check the box again.

No, there aren’t any new tic-tacs.

Maybe there will be if you check once more.

Sketch Comedy

October 29, 2010

Hey, all. I just wanted to drop a post plugging my new project, Sketch Comedy. It’s an anything-goes webcomic that brings all my stuff under one banner. Pungirls, Whatever I Want to Do Gosh, Action Robot Adventures, I am a Purchasing Rockstar, Borderline Boy, and even some new original stuff–it’s all going to update here in the future. Also there is a wizard.

Additionally, I’d like to thank Ari and Gryfft for all the support they’ve given me. You’ve helped keep me motivated and encouraged, and I appreciate it hugely. Thanks!

Multiplex celebrates its fifth anniversary this month. There were a bunch of guest strips, and my guest strip for it went up today.

You can check it out at the Multiplex site.

June 14, 2010

Today at TWIW I reviewed a sweet comic anthology of science fiction short stories, Exploded View from Cloudscape Comics.

I think you guys would particularly enjoy this anthology. It’s good.
