Yup, Webcomic Planet is hosting it’s Readers Choice awards for 2009. Now I know that The Pig’s Ear is new but if any of you feel that I am worthy of nomination in any of the categories I would be eternally grateful. Now I go back to drawing this weeks strip! Cheerio folks.
Yeah sorry guys, work the last couple of months has been running me ragged and this weeks strip isn’t quite ready yet. Once I get home from work tonight (about 9 pm ish) I’ll put on the finishing touches and there will be a comic! It’ll still be Thursday…that counts…right…?
You might be looking here and wondering “where did the comic go!?” and “Bloody hell the site looks different” thats all due to my attempting to upgrade to comicpress 2.8 (for three days I might add). Well, it was a hard slog and it’s 2:25 am my end but thanks to the infinitely paitent Frumph who I’m sure any of my fellow comicpressers are aware of.
Seriously, I can’t thank the man enough. I’d been tearing my hair out for days trying to get this update to work and now I can finally go have a sleep and get back to editing the site and polishing off that comic I owe you lovely people in the morning. Until then I’m going to sleep now, cheerio!
At the moment I am sat in my parents house in a ridiculously comfy sofa on my folks laptop. I’ve been here since Saturday afternoon and I’ve done nothing. Seriously, absoloutly nothing. I haven’t looked at my sexy DSi that I brought with me, in fact the most I’ve done is draw a page of hands for a spot of practice in my sketch book.
I’ve got to say that it’s just what I needed. Work has been mad the past month or so and I’m always scrabbling to get the next thing on my big list of things done in time (Pig’s Ear included, although I’ve manged to get out of my habit of leaving it until about 5 hours before the deadline). I’ve walked around the town too since the weather has been good and basically just spent the last couple of days recharging my batteries and I feel all the better for it.
On another note The Pig’s Ear has been reviewed by Coyote Trax’s Webcomic Critique. Go and have a look, he says some nice things (obviously, or I probably wouldn’t have directed youÂ over there). While you’re at it young Mr Coyote is always on the look out for new webcomics to review (less than a year old) so if you happen across one or have one yourself drop the fella a line after you’ve read through a few more of his reviews.
Now, there’s a lot of Cyril art floating around on deviant art but mostly it’s inspired by my many OCT outings (that’s original character tournament for the Uninitiated). The following however is one of the first (if not the only) to be inspired by The Pig’s Ear itself.
This is by the HI-LARIOUS Pepperoni Deluxe another veteran of the OCT circuit. You should go and visit him now he’s got a lot of fantastic artwork. I don’t recommend going while you are having something to drink, it may well come shooting out of your nose.
