I hate to say this, but Issue 74 will not be ready for Thursday. Here are my reasons…

1. Panel 1 is taking a while to ink (you will see why)
2. Need to redraw two of the panels
3. Don’t feel like staying up late rushing through the coloring.

I will have it done by friday… I hope. Here’s a sneak peek of the comic. This is panel 1…

Oh yeah, I’m half way done with the emails. =)

Happy … uhhh … post-birthday … Hawk … Idunno, I have nothing to say.

Actually, I am having major computer problemsagain (as in a bad hard drive), so I’m going tokeep whatever (ARRRRRRRRRRRRRGH) thoughts I haveon that to myself. It’s probably (SUNNUVA^$#^&*@)better that way.

Once again, I would like to thank everyone for wishing me a happy birthday (which was yesterday if you’re JUST joining us). Throughout the whole day, I was getting emails after emails. I got about 350+ happy birthday emails, and yes I’m planning to reply to every single one of them… it might take a while. =)

As for tomorrow’s comic, I’m somewhat behind on the drawing. Last night I ended up doing my computer science homework and studying for a quiz. Oh yeah, I did have cake while doing my homework, that made me happy. =) I see myself staying up late tonight trying to finish it. -.-

So yeah, I just turned 22…

Hmm, I don’t feel any different! Damn it! For me, every birthday is the same, just a regular typical day. I go to class, I go to work, I come home.

I would like to thank everyone who emailed me and the forum members for wishing me a happy birthday. Also, I would like to thank Jes, Ian, and Matt for giving me early birthday gift at Katsucon. Oh yeah, don’t forget to wish Steve Jobs a happy birthday as well.


This year, I’m going to change the birthday tradition. Instead of getting birthday gifts, I’m going to give something in return. You can download a simplified version of the bunisher photoshop file. I recommend you open this photoshop file in Photoshop 7 or higher. When you open it, you will see how I use layers to color my lineart. Hopefully, this will give you some idea how I work and teach you as well.

Well, I better get back to work. I have a Flash project due tomorrow.

I still feel like crap. So I’m not going to say much right now. I took some time and created the Bunisher wallpaper… so…now you got a Bunisher wallpaper. Now I need to rest.

Power T-Shirt orders placed before Jan 24, 2004 have been shipped and most of you have been receiving them in the mail. There were a couple backorders that will get filled with the next run as well as those orders placed after Jan 24th.

The next run should be happening towards the last week of this month. Thanks for your patience.
