Employees Only - The Radioactive Turbo Sloth - Part 2

The plot continues into part 2! I'm enjoying doing these, but they are a little more work. Thankfully though I've had some decent ideas pop into my head while I'm working on them...and once I remember those I'll be ready for when Employees Only continues with its regularly scheduled randomness.

Oh, and I discovered it's a little tricky to depict holograms in black and white artwork. Hopefully it comes across, but I guess I'm capable of trying something else if people tell me otherwise.

Employees Only - The Radioactive Turbo Sloth - Part I

Click to see full sized image!

The Mix's birthday is coming up, so I decided to make him a comic series based on a drawing he gave me for his newest character idea. True enough, I'm also doing this because I can't afford to buy him anything.

I think his character's future hairdo is gift enough to be honest.

The Inchworm

The last comic I worked on at my workshop last month was this on-the-spot piece that I had to create from a word which I pulled out of the hat. My word was "inchworm" and this was what I did in about two and a half hours (inks only).

About a third of the way through I began thinking to myself, "Have I seen this before?" and I immediately went over to Scott McCloud and told him I thought I may be redrawing someone else's comic. He said just go for it anyway. His advice was that even if someone else has already done it, I'd do it differently. So if you have seen this before (or created it) please let me know and I'll attribute my comic to you. Otherwise I'm hoping I just was being overly paranoid...because I am a little proud of it.

Hope you like it!

The Inchworm Preview

I'm really tired of not getting the comic done for you guys, but here I am, yet again saying it's going to be tomorrow.

Just to prove I have something, I took a screen shot of one of the panels. I may decide to change the colors, but for right now hopefully this will pique your interest enough to encourage not dropping me altogether.

See you tomorrow!

Employees Only - A Party Up In Here

100 Comics of Employees Only!

Needless to say there's A LOT of references to the past comics in this guy, so please forgive all the inside jokes. It's sort of sad to think about how bizarre this comic will seem to someone who's reading Employees Only for the first time and sees this comic; I mean, there's a tyrannosaurus surrounded by whimsy, standing behind a talking bison...

I think I might come back later and add links to the previous comics to save everyone the trouble of trying to understand this on their own. Until then, I'm a proud parent showing off his bizarre children and if you have any idea about what's going on I'm happy to consider you a fan.

Thank you!

Update 3/3/12 - I've tagged a lot of the characters in past comics, so you can check the labels and click a character's name to see the comics they've appeared in. It should work pretty well for everyone except Ian and the Mix, because they're in a lot and I didn't have time yet. Still though, happy comic reading!
