    I invented absurd cartoon characters in high school while I was supposed to be doing assignments. Regular characters: random duck with one huge eyeball being killed in various ways; Chuck: Sadist for hire; Cross-Hair: The Badger Destructo; Kite and Doge (cat & dog into spy shit); Ubenstugulechtubl (with proper accents I'm too lazy to do right now): Cyborg constructed by the escaped SS.

    Well, I think his contract ran out, and NASA chose not to renew because they lacked the money.

    My about page mentions that I work for NASA ó Iím technically a contractor working repeated contracts for them. However, they recently ran out of money to rehire me for another contract, so Iím done there for now. This isnít really bad, because it came right as the t-shirt orders were becoming so strong that I really needed the time off to handle them. Combine that with answering the huge amount of email I get through the site, drawing the actual comics, and assorted other things, and I really donít have the time to work a full-time job at the same time that I do this comic/store. So, for the moment Iím now a full-time webcomic artist/t-shirt designer. I donít know how to thank you enough for all the support.

    Easier said than done, man. If procrastination could make money, I'd own you all.

    Aha. Found it. Wasn't quite so random. He was messing around with a server and uploaded them onto that.

    I was going through old math/sketching graph paper notebooks and didn't want to lose some of the work in them, so I started scanning pages. I took the more comic-y ones and put them up on a server I was testing out, and got a bunch of readers when BoingBoing linked to me. I started drawing more seriously, gained a lot more readers, started selling t-shirts on the site, and am currently shipping t-shirts and drawing this comic full-time. It's immensely fun and I really appreciate y'all's support.
