Tapping into the Zeitgeist

So, in light of recent events, this seemed appropriate. I don't feel like explaining where any of this came from or for how long it's been sitting around, so don't bug me about it. If you want to read more about the LCROSS then that is what Wikipedia is for.

Something Different

I know, that whole "regular update" thing fell apart in record time, and the rest of the book has continued to fail to materialize. Shut up about it, ok? Just...don't start. It's not any good, you guys, so don't even worry about it. Now, here's something I did yesterday.

I think comments are finally enabled up in this blog, also. Don't say anything shitty about my comic, you know how I get (probably).

This comic is a good example of one of the main tenets of The Abandoned Astronaut - when in doubt, end with a panel of abject misery.

Here is a Wallpaper

The Cover!

It Will Look Like This or Close to This:

It's (sort of) worth noting that there was a different cover that my graphic design teacher hated so much she absolutely would not consider looking at for more than one second. She hated it so much.

Little things

Backstory: today I bought a moleskine notebook, a decision about which I was fairly conflicted. On the one hand: they are nice products that have earned their somewhat revered status through substance of merit and not simply because it is a Name people Know. On the other hand: they are completely a dickhipster thing to have, sort of. In my defense, I do not think I fall into the realm of dickhipster because my glasses have very thin frames, my pants fit properly, and I do not like Godard or TV on the Radio. Also I consulted with wise council on the matter and had my worries assuaged.

Anyway, I figured it was important to put the money spent on the notebook to use immediately, and eventually wound up with the following:

As soon as I finished it I was surprised that I had not managed to incorporate some joke based around this premise in a strip somewhere years before, as it basically writes itself from this starting point. I guess that’s still an option. It should be noted, as well, that I also tried to think of some kind of joke hinging upon an anagram of the sign (which would have worked better if I had drawn it to look as though it used letters like marquees and the like) but I came up short, envisioning only some kind of punch line that involved our friend getting slapped with a “shrug fee.”

I also drew a robot, but this is not the place for such things. Perhaps the time is nigh to create a blog for such matters...
