SHOWTIME

After nearly a year of on-again off-again work, I’m finally ready to present the new (and totally not over-hyped) stream overlay! It will be making its debut with today’s (tomorrow’s? (how 2 timezone)) stream where we’ll draw the new comic. The specific time is mentioned below!

Join us on the Loading Artist Twitch channel later today! 3pm PDT / 6pm EDT / 10pm UTC Wednesdays (or 10am Thursday in New Zealand (wow I hate time zones (oh god daylight savings is kicking in later what does that mean oh god))).

Also, I have a TON of sketchbook doodles relating to this stream overlay, and I’ll be dumping them all over my patrons along with next month’s rewards — just in case you’re interested!

To Garfield

I can’t believe I missed GF’s birthday! Garfield turned 37 38 on June 19th (I can’t math).
GarField not GirlFriend, get it?! Ha ha ha ha ha I’m so alone.

There were only 3 comics in my life when I was growing up: The Far Side, Calvin & Hobbes, and most of all: Garfield. I had way more Garfield things in my life than anything else (probably because Garfield is such a merchandise slut).

I loved Garfield, and I would read the comics every day. So much so that it made me want to become a cartoonist. Look, I even attempted a fan-made Garfield comic:

Attempted.

FUN FACT: Did you know there has been a Garfield comic every day since 1978? And Jim Davis is still making them, and has a whole YEAR’S worth of comics stockpiled? For comparison’s sake, my comic buffer right now is 0.

Hey also I’ll be including the crazy high-res version of this wallpaper (& behind the scenes sketches + animated progression GIF) as part of this month’s Patreon rewards! So if you like the sound of that, or just want to support Loading Artist, consider becoming a patron!

Also also, I’ll be streaming myself drawing the next comic on Twitch in about 8 hours! Goodnight!
