I know I’m a little late to the party on helping to publicize this in my little corner of the web-verse, but I had to post something! It’s fantastical. Well, for something like me that is… someone who dreams of drawing every day. Actually I’d be glad to draw once a week right now. It’s hard when you have to do other things like eat and do things to make the money to buy things to eat.

ANYWAY, go check out Strip Search. I have been trolling the artist’s website and thus far, my favorite is Abby. But I’m still working my way through the episiodes. I’ll let you know when it’s all over who my favorite favorite is when it’s all over. Thus far, it seems like the contestants all admit that they got so much more out of it than just the prizes. That makes me happy. I think anytime you get passionate artists together, good things will happen. I hope that each of them keeps moving forward with that same twinkle in their eye as the first day of the search.

So what is Strip Search?! It’s a reality tv style web show put together by the Penny Arcade folks to find a web comic artist ready to take it to the next level by joining the PA team for a year and a bunch of money as a prize. They shall battle to the death with dinosaurs and go-karts! No not really. Maybe a little. But there will be tension! Heated moments of ferocious scribbling! And lots of closeup comments of all the artists about their feelings during the events. I like feelings. And scribbling. It’s been very inspiring for me thus far. I’m really glad they put something like this together. I’ve already drawn twice this week…might be a record for the last 6 months.

Just a little shout out to Abby. This does happen…I’ve yet to catch it on film. My dog thinks he’s a cat and I swear he stands next to my bed while I sleep…weighing his options. My money’s on him eating my boyfriend first. I give better cuddles.

With love- M
