Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Earlier this year I started on an online radio station called QCIndie.com. I rarely talk about it on here as I feel its target audience differs greatly, but I wanted to give thanks to a co-admin named Jess. She loves Grace Slick and is one of the few who’d get this strip without having to Google it. She doesn’t post much, but when she does, it’s always appreciated. So thank you, and thank you to all my fans who read and support my strip!
What happened yesterday could be considered as nothing short of a miracle. While I still haven’t gone into full details about my recent disappearance (don’t worry, I will later), I received nearly 40 pieces of fan art via the #VivaPicpak hashtag on Twitter, resulting in some amazing artwork done in many different styles. Now obviously that’s way too much artwork to post all at once, but I will be spreading it out over the coming weeks. Even names as big as Lunarbaboon got in the fun, where his comic received over 4000 (yes, four thousand) likes on Facebook in just a few short hours! One person went out of his own hiatus to create artwork, and another even created an animated Picpak!
Of course, none of this can go without a HUGE thank you to my friend Jon Esparza. He arranged for all of this to happen in under two weeks! Knowing that my simple little characters can evoke so much out of so many people has been an amazing feeling. I want to thank you all for making my day, cracking me up, and showing me my characters in ways I never would have imagined.
I tried my best to comment/retweet on every piece of fan art that came up. If I didn’t get to yours or it fell through the cracks, contact me on Twitter and I will definitely give you props. Once again, a huge thank you to you all…because I’m speechless, I don’t know what else to say. Thanks for all the love and support!

This is a collaboration I made with Travis Blair of thezarf.com. He wrote the words, I drew the comic. It’s a bit odd seeing Picpak as a spokesperson for clothing, but I guess anything can happen, can it? Click to enlarge.
Thanks for the idea, Travis!
Check out my guest strip for Lunarbaboon! It’s only been up for a few hours, but it’s already had a huge response. It has over 650 likes on Facebook! Be sure to read more of his comics here and like him on Facebook. Click the comic to enlarge.
Intelligent Life is a geektacular comic strip by Garfield studio artist David Reddick. I love the character designs and wanted to try giving them a shot. Click the comic below to enlarge:
