I really enjoyed drawing this comic, although inking everything was a bitch — especially when my hand and arm were a little shakey after drinking a lot of caffeine (damn your delicious addictiveness, Full Throttle!). The guns, in particular, were really fun to draw just because drawing firearms asserts my masculine and violent side.
Other small details:
Friday is the semi-spectacular conclusion to the Oakley Cupid/”Love is in the Air” storyline, which will probably raise more questions than a resolution.
In other news, go watch The Departed. If Martin Scorsese doesn’t win an Oscar this year, then the Academy can suck a fuck.
…but how do you suck a fuck…?
If you wanna grow in comedy, you have to take your shots at celebrities.
I’LL UPDATE WHENVEVER I WANT — which, luckily for you, is today. I’m continuing the whole “Oakley Cupid Introduction” story arc, starting with how Oakley lost his eye.
So what have I been doing during my unexpected absence? The usual, you know… drugs, sex, and marauding the streets with crowbars. I’ve also resumed working on the first official Sausage-Fest book, “Whiskey and Pills,” after my friend Allan kept asking me about it. It will definitely come out this late summer/fall since I have finally gathered all the comics I needed to include (for instance, the “Rules of Attraction” storyline). I’ve also decided to rework some of the material, like the cover and the written parts.
I’ve also drawn/pressed 7, 1-inch Sausage-Fest buttons. Now you can be stylish AND funny!
Once I get the store all set up, you can buy them for US$1.00 each or US$5.00 for all seven. More goodies, surprises, and news within the next following days, and I promise you, more art and comics!
While writing the script for this comic, I realized that Nigel and Randy do look like rabbit heads when they’re upside down.
Did anyone spot the Neil Diamond reference?
And for a small treat, check out the 5 (of 6) promos I’ve created for the site!
As you can see, unlike Jeffro, Caitlin can take a punch or two. She’s virtually unharmed after this fight!
She’s evil and manipulative, and her intentions remain a mystery to everyone. Heck, even me, her creator!
Caitlin lights up a cigarette and, as Chris and a wounded Jeffro watch, walks towards the morning sun. A fitting ending, I feel, for what has been a really long and interesting story…
Let’s ruin a beautiful moment.
Call it karma for Chris setting Lizzy on fire in the “Frat Party” storyline. And honestly, if this ever happened to you, do tell!

Oy! Sorry for the delay. I was swamped with graphic design work yesterday, not to mention that it was also my 23rd birthday.
Jeffro and Caitlin are an even match for each other — at least when it comes to fighting. But, according to the first panel, where does one necessarily find a wrench and a hunting knife in a bar?
On the other hand, Caitlin and Kyle the Duck are a perfect pair: both are moderately sinister and both like to wear black.
Speaking of fashion, I have placed an order to the good people at PureButtons.com for 100 Nigel and Randy 1″ pins. These two are new designs apart from what I had drawn a year ago, so whoever owns the old Nigel and Randy buttons (Pat Doran, I’m looking at your general direction) you may wanna get a hold of these:
