New Chain-link Jefferson Wallpaper!

Having a lot of free time on my hands what with working at a university that gives lengthy Christmas vacations, I took it upon myself to create a brand new Chain-link Jefferson desktop wallpaper. You didn't think you'd be using that Christmas wallpaper forever, did you?

Bulldog & Cooch: The Tribute

To those of you not familiar with what's going on in today's strip, let me help explain things a little...Bulldog & Cooch (and Skull, for that matter) are characters created by Scott Kurtz, who runs a little webcomic called Player Vs. Player (just...just to clarify, it's not really a little webcomic, in fact, it's rather massively popular!). Bulldog & Cooch are basically alternate personas of two of the strip's main characters, Cole and Brent, who are a throwback to 70's/80's "buddy-cop" shows. I love Bulldog & Cooch, and that's why I decided to make this strip in tribute to them, and to Scott Kurtz. Originally, I sent him the strip to see if he liked it, but unfortunately I never received a response, which could either mean he was too busy to reply, or that he hated it. Either way, I still didn't want the strip to go unnoticed by anyone at all, seeing how it took so long to make and how much I like it. So anyway, here it is...the Bulldog & Cooch tribute strip, courtesy of George.

Creating a font of your own handwriting

A couple of days ago, I decided, on a whim, that I was going to create a font based on my very own handwriting. The only problem was that I had no idea how to do this. Fortunately, I figured it out, but I wanted to spare others from having to go through the rigmarole of a learning process I had to go through to do it. That's why I created a tutorial showing exactly how to create a font based on your own handwriting. Maybe you're the type of person who wants to know how to do that sort of thing. If so, happy trails!

Bonus comic today!

Well, today's the day for one of those special bonus comics I promised you earlier this week. There will be another one coming on Christmas day! My gift to you. Don't say I don't spoil you.

Wacom Cintiq 12WX Review

I've noticed that quite a few people are coming here via Google searches for "Wacom Cintiq12WX," and I want to accommodate those visitors with my own Cintiq12WX product review. It includes pictures and links to YouTube videos I've recorded of the Cintiq in action. Hope this provides some of you with the information you need!

A couple of reminders...

I've noticed that even though traffic has been picking up lately, I haven't had any new e-mail subscribers in a long time! If you're not aware of the e-mail subscription service, it allows you to input your e-mail address and have George e-mailed to you every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It's quite a nifty little service and if you're the type (read: normal) of person who doesn't use the internet 24/7, you might like having comics e-mailed directly to you.

Also, don't forget that you can download the George holiday-themed wallpaper for the low, low price of one click, reduced from 2 clicks. Take advantage of this introductory offer now!

And so it is finished

Well, it's time to take the Intuos3 off the auction block, pack it up, and ship it to the lucky winner. I honestly didn't get quite as much for it as I'd hoped for, but I also didn't do too badly, either. I'm just glad that I've almost recouped my expenses from my Cintiq. Anyway, I've been sort of short of news to report (+3 RHYME POINTS) and for that I...cannot retort (OH, -1). I would like to say that as my Christmas gift to you, there will be two bonus George strips coming within the next week and a half. One will be on Christmas, and one will be the Thursday before Christmas. I had to wedge that one in because I sort of miscalculated my update schedule and had to finish the current storyline by Christmas eve and was left with little recourse but to give a BONUS UPDATE WOOO! And then, well, the Christmas one is just my way of saying Happy Festivus.

For Sale: One (1) Legendary Item

I am pleased to announce that my very own Wacom Intuos3 graphics tablet is up on the auction block. This thing has created quite a few George comics over the past few months, but it's finally time to let it go. Now that I have a Cintiq12WX, I just don't have any more use for it! But I take care of my possessions, and this thing is as....grey and flat as it was when I first unboxed it. So now's your chance to not only get a nice Intuos3 at a good price, but a chance to get your hands on a piece of George history.

Papa's Got a Brand New Bag....of AWESOME

Today, the UPS man played the role of Santa for me. He wasn't a very good Santa; he was too tanned, too dark-haired, too clean-shaven. He was kind of pudgy but not very jolly. Most importantly, though, was the great package he carried. After struggling for what felt like an eternity trying to sign my name on those incredibly defective digital calculator/notepads they carry around, I brought my treasure in, sliced the box open, and gazed in awe. I am the proud new owner of a Wacom Cintiq 12WX.

Couple of Things...

First off, the search page should now be working correctly. It hasn't been working since I re-designed the website a few months ago, and though I wracked my brains then trying to fix it, when I came back to it tonight the problem was incredibly apparent. So incredibly apparent that I must've had an IQ of 37 a few months ago.

Second, Chris sent in this photo of his ASUS EEE proudly displaying the 800x480 version of the George Christmas wallpaper. Thanks Chris!
