Dawn Griffin’s amazing Zorphbert and Fred always manages to squeeze the finest comedy juice out of any topic with wit and great art, to boot! Dawn is an uber-talented creator on numerous levels from children’s books and illustrations to her popular and cherished faux-dog aliens, Zorphbert and Fred. Dawn is also a tireless supporter of the webcomics community, a co-chair of the Webcomic Alliance and a major contributor as well. Dawn is an example I hold up to what being a webcomicker of note is all about, and I’m extremely proud to have the chance to draw her lovable characters.
I took a detour out of Zombie Boy Comics and went for a little drive over to Addanac City where George Ford was kind enough to let me draw a guest strip for his fabulous comic. You can see it here.
Addanac City is the perfect title for George’s creation because it requires an entire city to contain all the interesting characters he has invented to reside there. There were so many good ones to choose from but first and foremost on my must-draw list was Hank Addanac, the mini minister of mayhem. I’m proud of how the strip turned out and happy that George let me visit his town for awhile.
The fine fellows over at TWXXD made a recent mention of yours truly with a very surprising and kind shout out in their latest podcast. TWXXD is an irreverent site crafted by brothers Brandon and Colin Oliver, which features TWXXD, a gag-a-week strip, MFOffice, and Talking With Toys, a photo montage long-form humor strip which tackles current events and gaming news. Also on the show was the incomparable Javis Ray of Legacy Control, a beautifully rendered, over the edge webcomic that chronicles that antics of three friends, Aggro, NiCad and Rabs. It’s about life, videogames, pop culture, and all things geeky. I highly recommend you visit these gentlemen and delve into their work.
Gentleman, musician, and artist extraordinaire, Drewvis recently published a step-by-step breakdown of his art process, going through each step of his creative procedure to get to a finished Droodle.

Here’s a pic of my pug, Pooj, amidst the last remnants of autumn leafiness. Pooj is the main inspiration behind Zombie Boy’s best friend, Gorr – they share many of the same traits to a fault. His habit of burying his muzzle under the leaves on the trail of a scent got me thinking of taking it one step further, and thus was born a Bandit. You can see the first appearance of the Leaf Bandit here.
